Welcome to 2010--Era of the Three Course Cereal Meal

I am a big fan of cold cereal. I could pretty much eat it for every meal. The only problem with cereal is that sometimes after a cereal lunch or cereal dinner, I’m left wanting.
If eaten in the traditional way, cereal can be a bit un-satisfying. However, after years and years of exhaustive trial and error research, I think I’ve found the solution: I call it cereal courses. Instead of just sitting down and having a single big old bowl of Lucky Charms, you have three smaller bowls of different kinds of cereals.
Now before you just go off on your own and start mixing cereals willy-nilly, please note that it's not quite as easy as it seems; there's a bit of an art to it. You must have the right kind of cereal for the right course. For example, for the appetizer, I recommend something light and somewhat bland to prepare the palate---like Cheerios, or Rice Chex. For the main course, I suggest something filling, with a lot of fiber, but not too sweet---like Shredded Wheat or Raisin …

I'm in Love.

I never thought I'd feel this way about a hamburger. Chocolate cake? Of course. Hot buttery rolls? You betcha. A man? Sure. But a hamburger? Never! If you told me a year ago that I'd fall head over heels for a burger, I'd slap your face and call you crazy. Up until a few short months ago, I only ate hamburgers because they were the only thing available on the menu, or because someone gave me one for free (I'll eat almost anything if it's free). All that changed when I discovered Five Guys. Now, I'm pretty sure I'm in love with their burgers.

I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "It can't be love, it's too soon! You should keep trying other burgers for at least a year before you say you're in love." But I say to you, nay! It is love! It is! I'm ready to forsake all other burgers for this burger. I'm ready to commit!

Here is an eating guide if you too decide you want to go to Five Guys and possibly experience b…

Rock, Paper, Scissors, Pencil

Okay, so I didn't succeed in stopping the Kaysville cannon this year. But next year will be different. Next year, I'm actually going to try. I'll keep you posted.

On to a different subject, which is somewhat related to the previous topic since both involve me improving the world. I'm looking to renew my childhood dream of adding pencil to the rock, paper, scissors game. I added it many, many years ago, and was able to successfully convert my next-door neighbor, so I'm pretty sure now that I'm all grown up and wiser and what not, that I'll have no problem convincing the rest of you to add it.

Instead of saying "Rock, Paper, Scissors" you will say "Rock, Paper, Scissors, Pencil." Okay, see now, it's a subtle but significant difference. There are four elements instead of three. It might seem a bit tricky at first, but you'll get the hang of it, and then you will never want to go back to the original version.

The rules are as follow…
