Interesting mail

June 17, 2012


Saturday brought some really good mail. Some things that I had ordered online for school arrived (no photos), which I am embracing more and more as a way to shop. I never had to leave my precious stool, and I got a present! (Never mind the wasteful packaging – a necessary evil.)

My parents sent me plans for a really interesting tiny house I could live in brick oven to build outside. I think my dad wants some bread, huh? Now I just need to rip up the brick streets of Seward for supplies!

I could sleep in the warm part.

Another envelope held a Special Early Bird Pricing packet from the Omaha Performaing Arts Council inviting our ukulele group to buy tickets early to the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. (Warning, there is a tiny swear in the song – d*mn – in case you are in a place where that would be frowned on, but the uke playing is phenomenal!) I feel a little dishonest keeping it, as it’s been well over two years since I’ve gone to a get-together. I sent an e-mail about it to the Ike group’s fearless leader, but I do still have this information…… Want to go to a concert next April?

Thanks, Diedra!

    Fun stuff! That is why it would be a tragedy to end Saturday mail delivery!

    In the picture of the brick oven, I saw the top part as saying: Brad Borg. That’s what I would call myself if I were assimilated by the Borg.

    Oh Lauren you must build the brick oven! Not only bread, but pizza too! And fish…

    And thanks for the Ukulele link….it led me to this guy! Why did I never hear of him before? He is awesome!!

    Could you make Runzas in that oven?

    I’d never really heard of them before reading this just now:

    But I searched here and see you’ve posted a few times about them. I just didn’t know what you were talking about.


    • Lauren Said on:

      If I were to describe a Runza, the first thing that comes to mind is hottest (temperature-wise) food on the planet. That meat-and-cabbage mixture gets wrapped up in bread dough, baked and retains its heat. I always have to break mine open and eat half my fries before I even begin.

      To answer your question better, I think I could bake Runzas in it…. using baked Runzas as fuel! Egads! I’ve invented a perpetual baking machine!
