Popcorn Update


I want you all to know that I’VE BESTED MY EVIL POPCORNMAKER!



Remember how my popcorn maker would shoot popcorn everywhere and it was out to get me?


Well, Boyfriend bought me THIS:

1. It’s an awesome popcorn bowl
2. It’s deep and rectangular so popcorn kernels don’t shoot out of it and popcorn doesn’t explode everywhere.


I very much enjoy not having to clean my entire kitchen in between making popcorn and eating it.

  1. So domination of the popcorn maker wasn't so much besting the evil machine but bowing to its evil machinations by purchasing a thing for it? Well, whatever works. I thought there would be some adjustment for the rate that popcorn was jetted from the machine, like a speed control on a baseball pitching machine.
    Now, is there anything that can stop those weird clear shards of popcorn shell from sticking in my tonsils?

  2. I still find microwavable popcorn the most convenient

  3. Be careful. At least your popcorn maker was unwittingly curbing your popcorn appetite by being so annoying. Now you'll be tempted to eat mass quantities of popcorn, drowned in butter and cheese, and you might get really fat. I know this from experience. I am not saying that you are fat.

  4. I saw "Oz the Great and Powerful" on Monday and in one scene the china doll clings to Oz's leg and all I could picture was you koala bear hugging your boyfriend. Is that weird?
    We just recently started making popcorn on the stove, with the buttery stuff they put on movie theater popcorn...best popcorn ever.

  6. Yay for super hero boyfriend! That is incredibly sweet that he was out and about, saw that bowl, thought of you and bought it. I gotta get me one of those. Thoughtful boyfriend, not the bowl. I eat popcorn the lazy way...microwave.

  7. Pop is my favorite kind of corn. I remember using a popcorn maker for years growing up. Microwavable popcorn got me through my undergrad years.

  8. Glad to hear you finally bested the evil beast, popcorn poppers can be scary buggers! That's why I only use the microwave :).

  10. I normally wouldn't yield to machines that were plotting against me, but that's a pretty cool bowl. I'd just love to eat popcorn out of that, period.

    Also, your doctor's "note" made me laugh... and then it made me sad. My doctor, in not so many words, said she thought I was just exaggerating when I came in the first time, so by coming in the second time it showed I was "more likely" to be sick. Gee, I wonder if I come in a third time if she'll say, "Wow, look at the commitment, this guy is DEFINITELY not faking it!"

  11. I need to get myself one of those bowls as I have not yet bested my popcorn maker. Mine too shoots the kernels all over the place a la Rambo and when you try and pick them up they burn your fingers. How can something so small be so hot!?!?!
