Traveling on a containership is not better than sex, though it does last longer.

So I was talking with my wife (and later Isaac) about generic breakfast cereals the other day. It seems to me that there is a generic form of just about every cereal these days. Even the weird crappy ones that I can't imagine anyone ever buys. There is a veritable cornucopia of generic cereals, one for every cereal except Kix. Kix, and Corn Chex are probably my two favorite cereals. Finding generic Corn Chex is a no-brainer, everyone makes that, but I've never seen a generic Kix.

I wonder if General Mills has some crazy patent on the process they use to make Kix so darn delicious. That's the only reason I can think of as to why there is no generic Kix. Am I crazy? Has anyone ever seen a generic Kix? If so where can I get some! I'm sure part of the reason that Kix is the most expensive cereal you can buy is because there is no generic version.

I smell conspiracy!

So right now there are tater tots on my BBQ. I made a little aluminum foil container for them, set the heat at medium, and put them on the second shelf. I figure if you can cook a sausage in there you should be able to cook tater tots. The BBQ is only has heat on one side, and the tater tots are on the other. Basically is just has to get warm in there for about ten minutes.

As my friend themabbi would say, "this is for science!"

Update: They turned out great! I am the master bar-be-que guy!
