you might already know this, but there is no need to spend money on microwave popcorn.  you can make popcorn in the microwave using plain old popcorn.  it makes sense, doesn’t it?  microwave popcorn isn’t somehow imbued with some kind of magical, microwave-friendly chemicals.  it’s just popcorn that they put in a bag and printed directions on the bag and charge a lot for that.

here’s what you do:  place 1/4 cup of popcorn in a brown paper lunch bag.  fold the bag over a couple of times.  turn on the microwave.  pop till there’s about a second or two between pops.  eat.  enjoy.  fast.  easy.  cheap.

amy already knew about this when i told her.  or else i had a dream that i told her and she already knew about it, i can’t remember which.

maybe i should turn this into a “hints from heloise”-type website, except that’s about all the tips i have.

i’m tipped out.

ok then, spring is on its way,

wednesday grace.
