Well, an interesting week so far. I was attacked by a spider that was two inches across and striped (I won), and I caught a snake in a mouse trap (accidentally). The cats are having a contest to see who can build the bigger collection of burrs. The web worms are early, and eating every tree in sight. There's a raccoon hanging around the place, which means I have to either hope it goes away again or get ready to shoot it (which I hate doing). It's shaping up to be a great year for ants in the kitchen. And I can't convince the bumblebees not to fly in through the torn spot in the screen backdoor, no matter how many times I chase them back out.

Ah, country living.

And my online connection has been cutting out every three minutes for two days straight. What a pain in the neck. It's taken me two hours to get half-way through my email, and getting at my flist is utterly confounding me. This is putting a serious crimp in my desperately needed catch-up time. Grr.

I think I need pie. There's a definite lack of pie in my life. But what kind to make? Everything's always complicated.

But on a much more fun note, here's a chat with Bruce Campbell about his new book. Definitely a must-get. Speaking of which, I'm not sure whether to put this on my wish list or erase it entirely from my mind. From DavisDVD:

"It's back to the "Evil Dead" well for another helping of ghoulish mayhem with Anchor Bay's Evil Dead 2: Book of the Dead 2. Director Sam Raimi's kick-ass sequel gets a wicked re-release this time around with its very own collectible Necronomicon "Book of the Dead" packaging designed, once again, by special effects guru Tom Sullivan. As an added bonus over the last Necronomicon release, you'll be able to press the bulging eye to hear the book scream! Look for the disc itself to feature the first ever high-definition Divimax transfer of this classic film, along with new and exciting bonus materials. No street date yet, so stay tuned."

Holy cats. What if I put it on my shelf and it eats my other DVDs? I mean, look at the first one! And yet...

The World's Best Spaghetti Pie (Trust Me):

6 oz. packaged dried Spaghetti
2 T. Margarine or Butter
1/3 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
2 well-beaten Eggs
1 lb. lean Ground Beef or bulk Pork Sausage
1/2 cup chopped Onion
1 7-1/2-oz. can (1 cup) Tomatoes, cut up
1 6-oz. can Tomato Paste
1 tsp. Sugar
1 tsp. dried Oregano, crushed
1/2 tsp. Garlic Salt
1 cup cream-style Cottage Cheese
1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella Cheese (2 oz.)
1. Cook the spaghetti according to package directions; drain (should have about 3-1/4 cups of cooked spaghetti). Stir margarine or butter into hot spaghetti. Stir in Parmesan cheese and eggs. Form spaghetti mixture into a "crust" in a buttered 10-inch pie plate.
2. In a large skillet cook the ground beef (or pork sausage) and onion until the meat is brown and the onion is tender. Drain well. Stir in the undrained tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, oregano and garlic salt. Heat through.
3. Spread cottage cheese over spaghetti mixture in pie plate. Top with the meat mixture. Bake, uncovered, in a 350° F. oven for 20 minutes. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over the top. Bake about 5 minutes more or until mozzarella cheese melts. Serves 6.
