i can not figure this out

so, i'm watching leverage on the DVR. i notice that the defendant's lawyer looks familiar. just a little something in the back of my head.

i search imdb's cast list for the episode, and he's not in there. which is quite odd, as he has a speaking part and everything. finally i remember epguides.com, and look up "leverage" there. find the episode and find the actor in question. its this guy:

david shatraw

where did i recognize mr. shatraw from? he was christopher titus' friend tommy on titus.

to emphasize: i recognized a guy from a tv show that hasn't been on the air for seven years, with only a brief look at his now. a real life person? i wouldn't be able to recognize them a day later.

pigs in a blanket

using this recipe, i made some pigs in a blanket:

well, okay, the link calls them "bannock wrapped hot dogs", but come on, we all know what they really are. and, to make things even better, i added bacon!

things for the future:

- roll the dough out thinner
- cook the bacon a bit before hand. while not a problem with this batch, it would probably taste a bit better cooked a bit longer. also, less bacon grease to get in the dough.

all-in-all, 8.5 out of 10.

for dessert:

From From my phone

rolled out the remaining dough, spread some of jenny's bourbon-butter, coated with cinnamon sugar, and baked. a very nice cinnamon roll.

(sorry, forgot to take a picture before tucking in to dessert)

rss feeds

i made some rss feeds for various comic strips. feel free to use them. suggest new ones in the comments.

(daily strips only, please. i don't do any error checking to see if the page actually exists, so sites that miss various days will be a pain. maybe in the future.)
