  1. Where's supper? I'm getting hungry.

  2. Good question ... I can throw something in the microwave ... ? /TJ

    (We didn't really schedule this, ya' know)

  3. I Thought They'd Never Leave

    This is a traditional parting blessing in our household. Regardless of how good a time we had or much we love the guests. For best effect, you need to say it the second the front door is closes. We don't

  4. ... ok, Supper-lite is up now. /TJ

  5. TJ:
    "Throw something in the microwave"???

    Nuke it??

  6. ... no, he said he wanted supper. And since it was going to be relatively quick I figured it would be Dinner-a-la-microwave.


  7. Oh. Okay. I guess it'a a regional thing to call throwing something in the microwave "nuking it." That, along with the picture of the A-bomb, you see ...

    Oh, well. Too early to attempt humor.
