Rice Krispy Treats & Cable TV


First of all Jason and I love our new apartment...... so much happier and lighter and so much less mold. (that's right, the first apartment had a bit of a mold issue) PLUS we have reliable internet and tv.
When we signed up for this apartment we were informed that we would get cable and thought that was FANTASTIC since we were just pretending we had any kind of tv with Everybody Loves Raymond dvds...... then we hooked up the tv and found that there were only 7 channels (including QVC and KSL-Salt Lake news and BYU). It was all good; we had the 4 main channels and were living the high life with Regis and Kelly in the morning.
After dinner the other night we decided to make some Rice Krispy Treats (since we have a few boxes of cereal) to take to some of our neighbors (to make friends). We had a fun visit--they are fun people, he loves golf and she smiles a lot so we like them. (I know you're wondering what this has to do with our cable situation, but there IS a connection, PROMISE!)
We sat down and talked for a while and then the topic drifted to their tv that they have to hit sometimes (about every 10-15 minutes) to make the fuzziness go away. Then Jason made a comment about the "cable" and how it was funny that we only have 7 channels yet they say we have cable. They looked at him kinda funny and said "We get over 60 channels." Our mouths dropped open. What?
Before the night was over our new friends were at our house fixing our tv (which was hooked up wrong with all the chords in the back) and now we get to watch What Not to Wear, So You Think You Can Dance, the campaign saga, and so much more....... now we can waste lots more time in front of the television! Can life get better?? I submit that it cannot.
The moral to this story is: Take treats over to people's houses and get cable tv.

As much as I like our new friends honey... I must say that ESPN has always been a man's best friend. I can't decide which I'm more pumped about. Your blogs make me laugh. Love ya.

They say that service is always better for those giving than recieving. Exhibit A -- Jason and Geri take neighbors treats and they in turn fix the cable. That's touching, really :)

Congrats on the move, and the cable and the rice krispie treats. You're right, life couldn't be much better. Well, maybe if you had DVR.

So glad to find out that you don't have to spend all of your extra time on the computer now! (On days that I need to be out of the house early, Dad has started hiding the mouse. meanie)
Just wondering....Do you spell Rice Krispies with a C or a K? Just wondering...since we don't have any.

geri said...

I just looked at a box and it is with a K..... and are you hinting that you would like me to give ya a box or two since we have a few??

geri said...

and that's RIGHT! now I can spend all my free time watching over 60 channels..... yes!
(kidding. I am not a televison junky and if I was I could have stopped for sure after having no tv for so long. promise.)

Audrey said...

Thanks a lot you jerks! I haven't been able to get my mind off of rice "K"rispy treats since your post! Not even kidding, I have made them 2 times and nearly ate the entire batch myself since Lane wasn't here to help!
I am glad to hear that you have cable so that dad will drop by to see you guys once in awhile now!
Funny kids!

geri! You crack me up! Oh and I love Brian Reagan! I like the little quote you put in there...

Lucy said...

Hey,
byt the way, the Albertson's Brand is called Crispy Rice (with a C), so everybody is right. We made them last Sunday night and ate the batch all by ourselves, too.

Want my Rice Krispy story? When we were first married Layne and I made some one night, and ate half of them. The next day I ate the other half and didn't want him to know that I was such a pig so I made another batch & ate another half. End result: looked like I hadn't touched them all day AND I really don't ever want them again in my life.

Audrey said...

Now 3 times.........

geri said...

no worries, you'll get so sick of them by the time you're done with the obsession that you'll never want to see another rice krispy treat in your LIFE!!

Ben & Rachael said...

Becky said...

Toby is still waiting for you to bring some to him!! Of course it would take like 5 mins. for him to make a batch... but he says he likes YOURS!!

geri said...

ok, tell him I'll be over sometime. and hey Rachael--come on ova and I'll give ya a box of Rice Krispies so you can whip up a batch...you never the good things that might happen!
