That is one of the SavCal approved uses of the crockpot. No worries.

I was assistant director on my college's production of A Doll's House.

1. Anything weird happen lately?

I have the house to myself for 4 days - It is a weird feeling.

2. What's for dinner?

Don't know, I don't feel like cooking for myself tonight, so I may have cereal.

3. What are you reading right now? (not at THIS moment)

Reading The Silent Wife by Harrison.

4. What are you  listening to right now? (NOW! THIS moment! lol)

Doggies whining for their walk, will listen to Feast of Crows on the walk.

5. What's been controversial in your community or state lately?

Replacing our Pastor, a well-loved 20yr veteran who's stepping down in July. Though he gave plenty of notice, the search committee can not decide on a candidate, so we'll have a year of guest pastors while the search continues. My husband is on the committee and horrified at the sexism and classism displayed by its members, but I'm confident his faction will prevail for the good of our church.

1.  Well, not really.  That is, until I woke up today and learned that someone here thinks Lake Michigan, the 5th largest lake *in the world* is man made.  And that someone else didn't know if it was or not.  That was pretty weird. Funny as heck, but weird.

2. Steak, cole slaw.

3. Elizabeth I (Margaret George).  It's good, but slow going because I've been using my at home free time to get the sewing room up and operational.  Finally finished that project Monday morning, but now my free time will be spent sewing, so Elizabeth will be delegated to lunch hours for the foreseeable future.

4. HGTV

5. The additional water tax to deal with run off into the Bay.

1. Anything weird happen lately?

Actually no.  (Crossing fingers)

2. What's for dinner?

2 pizzas for 7 hungry children.  I went to watch my children's tennis matches and was informed everyone was having "friends over" here.

3. What are you reading right now? (not at THIS moment)

740 Park

4. What are you  listening to right now? (NOW! THIS moment! lol)

THe phantom laughing of 4 children back home with their own moms now.

5. What's been controversial in your community or state lately?

Whether the Haves should fund and create new jobs for the Have Nots being terminated from employment by closing the budget deficit.

I'm confused.  Why would the"haves" have to create new jobs for the terminated? Why couldn't they keep their old jobs?

That's really the controversy.  The Haves should not have to create jobs for anyone.  The "Have Nots" are government employees and will be/have been losing jobs as the government tries to close the state deficit.
