How to turn a weeks worth of food into 2 meals.

Make a bunch of lasagna. Put it in the oven at 400 F. Forget about it and go visit some friends. Not the smartest thing I've ever done, but not the worst either. I have to admit that after being gone for over 3 hours, I was half expecting to see the fire department out in front of my house. Fortunately, the only thing damaged was my dinner. The center was still good, got dinner out of it, and probably one more.

What next?

Sittin' here writin' the post and watchin' the news. You lock your car because you're afraid of someone stealing your stereo. You hide your valuables in the trunk or under a cover for the same reason. Well, saw on the news today that there is something people are stealing from your car that you can't lock up. The catalytic converter. The value of the metals in the converter have gone up enough that they are getting between $50 and $100 for old converters. So, these people will pull up next to a parked car and slide under it and cut off the converter. They have it happening on surveillance cameras and it took all of 5 minutes. So, they say that if you see someone working under a car in a parking lot, call the cops. Let them figure out if it really is the owner.

So, that time you and I crawled under my Fox at school to pull of the dragging muffler, we could've been arrested. That would've been amusing.

Nah, they woulda just hassled us. As soon as they saw that your ID matched the title to the car, we woulda been fine. As long as we didn't turn away from them with our hands in our pockets. But $40,000 would have bought you a nice new car....
