why are cheese and carrots the same color?

My husband's birthday is this week, and the celebrating has already begun! Today I'm preparing enchiladas and carrot cake.

So far, the sauce is simmering, and the cake is baking. I make this same meal every year, and every year, I vow to make the cake on a different day next year, but I never do it.

The problem? The carrots and the cheddar cheese. It really throws me off to grate the carrots, and then later, to grate the cheddar cheese (or vice versa). They're the same color, etc, and I always have this irrational fear that I'll accidentally put the cheese in the cake and the carrots in the enchiladas.

Of course that could never happen, but it's a little disorienting to have both items existing in the same time and space. Like asking for trouble.

But since the cake is in the oven, and I'm pretty sure those orange things were grated carrots that I put in the batter, we're safe for this year!


p.s. We went to see Bourne yesterday. It's good, and parts are great. A little light on story, but Matt Damon did a fantastic job, as he did in the first two. Definitely fun to see on the big, big screen.

My favorite scene is the one in which Julia Stiles's character doesn't say anything. (Not because she doesn't speak. I like Julia Stiles. But because I think the silences are so evocative. There's a line in one of my Bombshells about how the two leads say the most important things in the silences, and that scene *so* reminded me of it. I loved it.)

I want to watch all 3 movies back to back now. :)

Hey you MizKit (and Kate, too)
I finally got around to listening to URBAN SHAMAN. I ordered the 2nd in the series for this month's listen from audible but there was some glitch and then I was gone with no internet access and barely cell phone access so I'll work on getting it this week. Anyway, loved the first one. It was as good as everyone says it is. :) I didn't give a very long review over in my eharlequin.com 10,000 book challenge blog but you can bop by and see if you want to. It's still up on the first screen . . .

I met Cady from the harelquin boards while I was gone. She had her sunglasses on her head so I told her about Kate thinking she had a tiara on her head in her little eHQ pic LOL!

Still have not seen TRANSFORMERS or DIE HARD. Kate knows why this bothers me. Maybe I'll take myself one weekend morning. Want to see BOURNE, too, but have to get the first two watched b/c we missed them. We miss most movies. sigh. It is so hard to get a babysitter . . .

Penn, off to do days of laundry. Yea on being back but couldn't the laundry/shopping/cooking/housekeeping fairy swing by tonight??

Julia Stiles gave a wonderful performnace in this movie. So subtle.

Maybe there will be a fourth installment, and we'll find out what happened between their characters before he "lost" his memory.

Bourne Finally!
After fully intending to see BU the DAY it came out, I'm finally going to see it tonight. FINALLY! I'm such a loser. And I've yet to see Transformers. I also wanna see that Catherine Zeta Jones movie.


PS: Don't you have a big announcement to make?

Re: Bourne Finally!
Wow, I thought you'd go to Transformers right away. You'll love it.

You don't mean the one about CZJ as a chef, do you? I just stared in horror at that trailer a while back.

What did you think of Bourne?

Re: Bourne Finally!
I loved Bourne. Loved, loved, loved. LOVED. I don't want them to make another movie. I think the end ended just fine. I was half expecting David to tap Nicky on the shoulder as a final scene and that would have made me cringe because it would have been a repetition of the scene with his dead girlfriend. And don't we know what kinda happened between him and Nicky? She met him when he first came in for training. They developed a relationship. But the training was too difficult and David was still bitter (about whatever it was that made him volunteer for the training in the first place). So he dumped her and from afar, she watched him transform from David to Jason. She couldn't do anything about it then, couldn't help him because he didn't need help, didn't want it. But she stayed in love with him and kept it hidden for three years. And now...he's baaaaack! Don't we all kinda know that David/Jason *will* be tapping Nicky's shoulder one of these days?

And yeah, I want to see the one with CZJ. I like her. Not love, but like. I want her to do another action movie that doesn't involve 60 year old men.

And I seriously, seriously need to see Transformers. Like, now. Maybe I'll duck out of work this afternoon.

bourne again
Hmmm, I want another one, but this time, with a little more plot.

As for him and her, yes, we think we know what happened, but wouldn't it be wild if they came up with something mind-blowingly diff? Maybe she's his sister, or they were high school sweethearts and she followed him into the spy biz, or ... oh well, they'll think of something, I hope.

Definitely cut work!
