Out of the Blue

As odd as it is to have two major national holidays so close together, today is IHOP National Pancake Day, just two days after Super Bowl Sunday. I'm a big fan of pancakes: cooking breakfast was the gateway to whatever other cooking I do to this day, so I will have to celebrate the occasion by turning out a stack or two, though a free serving of pancakes is tempting (especially since it supports charity), but with the nearest IHOP a half-hour away, it will be a lot quicker to make them.

Not sure I like that cat hater's video Blue.. you should know better..

Even as Resident Crazy Cat Guy, I found it funny. These aren't his pets, they're animals running loose, and they shouldn't be (or they shouldn't be peeing on his property).

I keep mine indoors, for their own safety. Would it be great if they could run around outside, without going in other peoples yards, or hopping over a fence onto the expressway? You bet. But that's not going to happen.

If cats must run wild, they need to be trapped and then spayed/neutered.

It is ALSO World Nutella Day ( http://www.nutelladay.com/ ) - not a bad combination... pancakes and nutella... mmmmmmmmm.

Every day should be World Nutella day. If there was free Nutella for everyone, there would never be any more wars. Nor hunger, for that matter. It would be awesome! :-peacepipesmokinghippie-:

I wish there was such a thing as a Nutella Deficiency. Then I could get a prescription and have to eat it daily, per Doctor's orders. Beam

Pancakes = flapjacks.

While we're at it, football != soccer, and there's no u in "color."

In the English language there is a U. Only Americans are lazy enough more efficient to want to drop a letter because it's too much work to insert it.
Fixed. How many hours of your life have been wasted writing that extra 'u'? Face it, Americans just do things better.

The Oxford English Dictionary records the word flapjack as being used as early as the beginning of the 17th century, referring to a flat tart or pan-cake. Shakespeare refers to pancakes in All's Well That Ends Well and to flap-jacks in Pericles, Prince of Tyre:[30]

"Come, thou shant go home, and we'll have flesh for holidays, fish for fasting-days, and moreo'er puddings and flap-jacks, and thou shalt be welcome."

Act II Scene I

Shakespeare was down with the flapjacks, motherfuckers!

Why not throw every vowel into it?

The UK used "color" as much as "colour" for centuries. Noah Webster just decided it was idiotic to throw out that many pointless vowels that add nothing to the pronunciation.

We refused to pay pointless taxes and we refused to use pointless vowels!

My wife makes banana oatmeal pancakes and the kids really love them. My 7 year old can eat 3 (small ones) at a sitting and would probably ask for more if she thought she could get them. I just eat one, no butter or syrup, rolled up with a cup of strong coffee. Now that's a good breakfast.

No Hobbit jam?

I made some banana flapjacks yesterday. Good times. I generally do mine more on the thinner side so they're more crepe like in nature, butter 'em up, and dust them with brown sugar instead of syrup, roll 'em up and eat 'em!

I saw these a few weeks ago and just about passed out...
