Girl Hitler lives! Tonight’s Venture Bros. was awesome. Who knew Underland bordered Michigan? Underbheit must have annexed part of Wisconsin.

Caught the Amazing Screw-On Head pilot on SciFi — I was very impressed. David Hyde Pierce is the perfect voice for Emperor Zombie. I’m surprised at how Hellboy-like they kept the animation; you’d think, especially with a pilot, that the style would have suffered in the transition, but it looks exactly like the comics. I really hope this show gets developed into a series. It’d be nice for SciFi to have an animated show they could be proud of (seeing as how Tripping the Rift is utter garbage).

I got some cool birthday presents from my family this past week. My mom and dad shipped me a really cool backlit keyboard with a flip-up LCD readout and a computer game and my sister sent me season one of The Boondocks. I was pretty pleased — that’s some ultra-swell swag right there.

I visited my mom in Enumclaw last night (she was there this weekend for a dog show at the King County fairgrounds). When I got home, I made meatloaf. Made my own breadcrumbs, even. It came out well. I love next-day meatloaf sandwiches. BTW, I think I’ve come up with the perfect glaze this time — it goes something like this:

0.75 cups ketchup
1 tbs Longhorn Barbecue Sauce
1 tbs maple syrup
1 tbs Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp Frank’s Red Hot
0.5 tsp oyster sauce
a couple shakes of garlic powder

For a meatloaf using 2 lbs. of hamburger, cook at 350° for 20 minutes, apply glaze, then cook another 20 minutes.

Oh yeah, and last Wednesday I made my chicken-broccoli-cream of mushroom casserole again. This time, I used bowtie pasta and a toasted breadcrumb topping. It received a favorable review.

On Friday, Brett and I drove over to Tacoma to get some Krispy Kreme doughnuts. I’d never had a Krispy Kreme before — it was great. Maybe the best I’ve ever had. We got two dozen.

(Almost) 2 dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts

Here are some models I’ve been playing around with in SketchUp. They’re kind of like forts… impractical for anything beyond reading comic books and having sleepovers in.
