The Pied Piper

Apologies in advance for a somewhat disjointed post. I actually have pictures, including some knitting, but they're still in my camera rather than uploaded, and I'm feeling too lazy tonight to upload them. I worked the last two nights in a row, then slept hard, but not quite enough, when I got home this morning. Then Annie posted brownie pics, which really bummed me out, because we were out of cocoa. Or so I thought.

When I was making dinner tonight (garbanzo chili = nom!), I actually found my cocoa tucked away at the back of the cupboard. Hooray! So I quickly whipped up a batch from scratch using the Joy of Cooking recipe, which turned out slightly undercooked (due to having to guesstimate adjustments for our edge-only brownie pan) but incredibly gooey and delicious.

For our viewing pleasure this evening, we watched a couple episodes from Season Two of Wonder Woman. The first episode of the evening was Knockout, which had guest stars Ted Shackelford, who would later become famous as Gary Ewing on Knots Landing, and beauty-queen-turned-actress-turned-sportscaster Jayne Kennedy, with a forward-thinking, but very poorly fleshed out story about terrorist sleeper cells.

The next episode, The Pied Piper, guest starred the Gorton's Fisherman, Eve Plumb(!), and Martin Mull, doing what is likely the worst fake flute playing ever in a role that probably comes back to haunt him in his nightmares. And because I'm all about the sharing, I went looking online and found the entire episode on dailymotion.com. So without further ado, I give you The Pied Piper:

I bet Diana Prince totally danced around in her underwear to that album.

You know, the next time people say my blog is beyond weird, I'm sending them here. No shit. Cool. But very weird.

I still mourn the fact that the only season of Knots Landing available on dvd is the first (and worst!) one!

Eve Plumb on ANYTHING is going to pretty much guarantee you a less than stellar episode.

Brownies are supposed to be kind of squishy. That is their job. You did it right, as far as I'm concerned. Mine were from a box, though. I didn't have any cocoa. Not even in the back of the cupboard. :(

I can't eat too many, though. Otherwise I won't be able to fit into my Wonder Woman costume. Which I now want to buy because that theme music just took me back...

I love old 70's & 80's shows.
