Meh stupid internet and chicken schnitzel

AH bliss for a minute. The Hubbster is at work. The kids are eating dinner while watching The Simpsons so I have a minute to post.

I am sorry I havent' visited your blogs but I have used all of our internet allowance so I am on dial up. Which is about as fun as sticking needles in your eyes. Or watching Speed Racer again, which I have done..and done..and done. I should be back to full speed on May 1. So your gorgeous pages refuse to load and it pisses me that I can't read and find out what you are up to.

It annoys me as we are out of town so are on satellite broadband internet. Which is particularly useless because it constantly drops in and out, and doesn't offer us a decent plan for the money. So we chose a plan with adequate fast hours...or so I thought. Each month I use it up...blogging. Or facebooking. Or googling Sam and Dean. And each month I promise myself that I will stay away from the computer....but of course here I am.

I was reading an article today about the tv series Masterchef, in which one contestant was praised for her unique "plating up" ability. I'm sorry- plating up ability?? Don't you just throw the fish fingers and mashed spuds onto the plates and call out "DINNERS READY"??

Oh you know I jest. I'm sure there are some people who have a gift to be able to do this and do it right. The way they wipe the sauce from the edge of the plate, or how they position the food so it looks delicious and inviting. Really, how hard could it be? It all goes down the same way doesn't it? I don't really think my kids care how their chicken schnitzel (or chicken mitchell as Miss T likes to call it) sits as long as it is tasty and filling and it's followed by a chocolate milo.

I am sure that I have never been to a eating establishment in which "plating up" was important.

My sympathies, there is nothing worse than dial up speed. We used to run out all the time when my son still lived at home - now we never run out which is bliss. But I run out of time more often than not. Have a great week.

Dial up? Dial up? I didn't think dial up still existed. I feel so sorry for you.

But somehow, you managed to get over to The Jason Show and comment today anyway! Yay! I feel so special.

Have a great day.

Oh yeah. My mother-in-law is a primo plater-upper. I, on the other hand, am delighted if I have clean plates to put the slop on so that my family doesn't have to eat it straight off the table.
