After I spent half of last week thinking about bagels, we went to Einstein Bros. on Saturday morning. We popped into a nearby Tom Thumb swanked out with an in-store sushi bar afterward for a few kiddie staples and checked out with a full hand basket that included ¡Mucha Lucha! fruit snacks and fresh salmon. (ObTrivia: Candi Milo, the voice of The Flea, also voices Dexter of Dexter's Laboratory [since 2001], XJ6 of My Life as a Teenage Robot, and Maya of Maya & Miguel. All hail IMDb, although it's not as much fun as playing Name That Voice Talent with karaksindru.)

I got a text message from my mother on Saturday. If that wasn't strange enough on its own, it read "We're in Las Vegas / Heading to LA." I initially only parsed the first line because I was watching Breaking Vegas on the History Channel. Whee.

I finally really miss the stitch fixer that I lost awhile back, so I ordered another from Nordic Needle. While I was ogling their online catalog, I noticed they have the current version of PCStitch on sale for $32 (20% off its usual price), so I finally bought it.

After hearing adverts all month that Dora the Explorer was going to become a big sister and printing the Big Sister Dora Activity Book from NickJr.com last week to find the last page showed a question mark over a cradle and a message to come back on the 21st for the page to reveal whether it's a boy or girl, I refreshed the page a few minutes ago to find only the first four pages listed now. I guess they won't paste the last page until it's shown in all time zones, but the new episode finished about 15 minutes ago here, so if you're interested, it's fraternal twins, one boy and one girl. As we were watching the end credits, Laurel said, "If I had a baby sister, I'd name her Myron." I asked her to repeat herself slowly and clearly, which she did, adding, "Like Myron who has Hush puppy!" It took me a minute to realize she meant may_lyn. *chuckles*

She loves saying your name... and asking me about Hush. I should start printing photos for her and put a criss-crossed ribbon board in her room for her to keep photos on so she can have photos of all her family, friends and boyfriends. (She collects boyfriends. karaksindru is her computer boyfriend, my brother's best friend is her firefighter boyfriend and one of Vogon's coworker's sons is her brother boyfriend.)

I insist that what Einstein Brothers sells, at least here in California, are not genuine bagels, just toroidal loaves of bread.

The closest thing that I can get to a New York bagel here in San Diego is from Bruegger's Bagels, but they have no locations in Tejas.

I am an equal opportunity baked goods lover, though I have no idea where to find a New York bagel in Dallas.

I like Einstein's solely on their blueberry bagels. Also, they offered metal lunchboxes a few years ago. That doesn't affect their food quality, but I collect metal lunchboxes. (:

I wish that I knew whither I could point you in Dallas, but I've done nothing more there than hung out in the airport, between planes.

I don't object to Einstein Brothers selling toroidal loaves that are not bagels, nor to people enjoying these toroidal loaves (with or without blueberries); I just object to Einstein Brothers naming these loaves “bagels”.

Somewhere, I have a Fireball XL5 thermos; I used to have the lunchbox to which it corresponded, but I believe that it is long since discarded.

They did have a Bruegger's Bagels in Texas (in North Dallas) but it was shut down after this happened: http://www.lubbockonline.com/news/012597/state.htm. Scary!
