Stray film observation #4694

Next time you watch a film and there's a part where someone pins a button or a pin onto someone, take notice of the fact that they always just stick it on. They never put it on like a real button. It's like buttons in movies have adhesive on the back. Ever notice? Two instances come to mind: Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure when Napolean eats the sundae and they stick the Ziggy Piggy button on and in Rushmore when Max gives Blume his perfect attendance pin.

Perhaps the teachings of my father worked (don't whine and don't share needles), but as evidenced by this weblog, I do whine quite a bit. Anywway, I tried to make this roasted vegatable medley sauce last night and I don't think it's that good. Is it the oven's fault? YES. My lack of culinary know-how? MAYBE. Your fault? 'COURSE NOT. You had nothing to do with. it.

Okay, I'm out of here to get some tea and then I'm going to finish reading The Grapes of Wrath. I got to the part in the book where it actually mentions "The Grapes of Wrath" and I was like:
