Shiny & New

My parents love me.
I go over and have dinner with them every Tuesday and just about every week they have something for me. 
Last week it was a new popcorn popper. 
See, growing up we had one and one week when I was over, I went searching for it because I REALLY wanted popcorn but didn't want the microwave crud.
Unfortunately, they seem to have disposed of it along with the electric griddle that I hoped they had still kept somewhere (yet they still have newspapers from last August. Odd). 
So this week my parents gifted me with weird Scout related stuff and a cute picture of me and my brothers from when we were kids. 
And drugs.
The prescription kind.
See, I had a sort of epiphany a week or so ago when talking to a fellow WWer at the stair climb. Without realizing it, all of my weight loss coincided with taking Topamax. I stopped taking the drug when I moved out on my own in September. This is also when I started gaining weight like a mofo.
But I'm not taking it to lose weight. My headaches are starting to bug me again something fierce.
We'll see how it goes...

Best of luck with the prescription!

I love air-popped popcorn. That microwave crap doesn't even compare.

I love air pop, actually my nephews were over one night and asked me for some popcorn, so I was like "sure!" got the popper out and started to make the popcorn and the younger one freaked! apparently I don't know how to make it right, according to his 7 year old self, popcorn can only be made in a microwave! LOL

anyway your parents are sure sweet, do they want to adopt? ;0)
