I’m not much of a cake eater, but this ‘recipe’ has put me in the baking mood.
I found it on the Interwebs. Rumor has it if you have a favorite boxed cake mix on hand, all you need is a can of soda — instead of the usual eggs, water, oil, etc. — to make a perfectly yummy dessert.
Here are the suggested combinations:
Florida clan — this is on my list of ‘suggested dishes’ for our beach trip later this month. We gotta try it!

I’ve never gotten involved in the online debate about whether or not to vaccinate children. Since I don’t have kids, I figured I would stay out of that fight (although I vaccinate my dog, so we can probably guess where I might land).
I have to wonder, though, if this TV commercial is making the back-and-forth even more heated…
Not only vaccinate your kids but re-vaccinate in their teens? The anti-vax crowd must be foaming at the mouth. But the ad’s emotional argument is effective.
Once again — staying out of it.

I never watched Entourage.
Much like Lost, Mad Men and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, I just didn’t get around to it.
Yet after each season was over, I survived without them.
And I felt stronger. Better. Faster.
My friend Wendy Molyneux, who happens to be a writer for the very watchable and Emmy-winning Bob’s Burgers, not only didn’t watch Entourage, she hated it. With a singular passion.
In fact, the only way she will watch the new Entourage movie is if she can raise $10,000 to donate to CureSearch. Because she hates pediatric cancers even more than she hates Entourage.
Me, I hate every kind of cancer. And I want to help Wendy raise the money as quickly as possible. Plus, I kinda love the idea of her sitting through this film. She’ll probably tweet her agony to the masses, and that will be hilarious.
So give if you can. We both appreciate it.

Executive Producer Rob Burnett tweeted that it was merely “show business.”
More like a missed opportunity.
The day after the emotional final episode of The Late Show with David Letterman, crews reportedly quickly dismantled the legendary set, throwing much of it into dumpsters.
While I’m sure Letterman and his team took what they wanted before the demolition, think of the monies that could have been raised — for charity, no less — by letting the general public purchase a piece of the show’s 33-year history.
I can’t believe I am the only one to think of that.
That charitable contribution would have been yet another exclamation point in Letterman’s legacy.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again (because when you blog everyday, some repetition is expected) — we are a big ol’ bunch of judgers.
But we usually don’t admit it.
Snaps to Vulture.com for admitting that they are doing just that — and really fast — about the new 2015-2016 television shows that are debuting during Upfronts Week.
They even called the article “Snap Judgments.”
While I know this honesty is fleeting, there is a little tear in the corner of my eye as I revel in it.
But the sad thing is, their snap decisions about the worthiness of these dramas and comedies will probably mirror that of the audience, and then that of the networks as they quickly jerk the programs off of their schedule when they don’t perform well enough after only one or two weeks.
These days, we judge quickly and fiercely without giving shows a chance to grow on the audience.
Although, without even seeing it, I’m not sure Supergirl ever had a chance.
