no such thing as a dumb question, if so I would hold the world record. Rice Chex is an oven roasted rice cereal in a shape of a puffed out square. here is the recipe if you or anyone else would like it

9 cups of rice chex
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon Vanilla
powder sugar

measure out chex in large bowl, set aside.
in a microwavble bowl mix choc. chips, butter, peanut butter heat on high 1 minute uncovered. stir then heat another 30 seconds, mix in vanilla and our over chex in large bowl. pour choc covered chex into a 2 gallon zip lock baggie (I use a walmart sack, make sure there are no holes though,lol) cover with powder sugar and shake to coat completely. spread evenly on wax paper to cool and store in air tight container in frig.

lol chuck.

we watched Burn after Reading, really interesting in an odd way. Death Race, actually good but bloody but hey Jason Statham is a great actor and not to shabby to watch. Tonight we watched House Bunny, Anna Faris has to be one of the funniest girls ever, and the meaning behind it was something everybody could hear every now and again

"Sheramy" wrote:I saw Australia over Thanksgiving weekend. It was a little corny, but I love Baz Luhrmann and Nicole Kidman -- I wasn't going to miss it. Overall I thought it was enjoyable. A good old fashioned epic film. In fact, I felt like Luhrmann was deliberately being corny as an homage to that style of film. It seemed on purpose, somehow.

The little boy was adorable. And Hugh Jackman...just try to describe him without using the word 'hunk.'


I saw Australia recently and enjoyed it. I know it was cliched, but I like how they kept some of the aboriganal aspects in the movie. I don't know much about Australian history so I don't know if it is "realistic" or not.

My mother, niece and I went to see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button today. Almost two hours into the film, the second reel switched on and started playing backwards and upside down. I kid you not. Watching and hearing Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett that way was a total trip!

The error couldn't be corrected, so the nearly sold out audience were all given free passes in lieu of refunds and we were sent on our Merry Christmas way. I plan to see it again in full this weekend. Like it's so hard to watch hours and hours of Brad Pitt! ;)

Eek that sucks! I'm a little surprised they couldn't get it fixed.

Went to see Marley and Me. Cried at the end - very sad, especially if you are a dog person.
