Hey, Look, It’s the Weekend

And after all the traveling I’ve been doing this week, you know what? My brain has the consistency of oatmeal. I’m going to take the weekend to let it solidify again. See you on Monday.
But is there fruit in the oatmeal?
Regardless, have a good weekend. :)
JS – no rest for the weary. Still waiting for the follow on to the Old Man War series. Tide coming coming in – time to go fishing! Mas tarde.
Isn’t that your normal condition, John ?
Seriously though, enjoy the weekend.
Arrowroot is good for thickening without adding that raw flour taste to your brains…
But use sparingly, because there’s nothing worse than lumpy, seized brains.
Er, don’t all brains have the consistency of oatmeal? We evolved skulls for a reason, you know.
Zombies likes oatmeals. urrggg mmmmm fiber.
With or without cinnamon?
It’s the First of May as well, Señor Scalzi. The one year anniversary of my discover (via this blog) of the music of one Jonathan Coulton! :D
Here’s the link that ytimynona meant to put in:
First of May
And since the clip linked from the blog post has also turned into oatmeal, here’s Coulton himself.
Spending a day in Columbus turns my brain to mush. There’s nothing quite like having hot cereal for brains, is there?
Now all you need to do is work out until your legs are like noodles, then you will be come “Carb Man”. Bringing much needed energy to the masses!
John, is Penguicon a good place to re-colidify your brain? I’ve never been.
At least oatmeal has some texture to it. I’ve had weeks that brain-gruel would be the most concise definition and describes a state of unmindness that espresso doesn’t even help.
Most of 1978 was that way but may have had more to do with being in college and the discovery of certain herbal products…
Back in 2006 and 2007, I was on the road 40% of the time, or an average of 2 days per week – so some of those were full weeks and an occasional over the weekend jaunt. It got old real fast, but I did come up with a good description of how you felt after getting home. . . . road-stupid.
/shudders, I think I would much rather have jelly for brains… strawberry flavour :D
Have a good weekend!
What really puzzles me is how he can get the correct consistency without the butter and syrup. How does he add those?
Rolled oats or steel-cut oats?
