This got to me - I saw it on this guy's twitter, which linked to this guy's blog. It's worth a few minutes to watch - trust me.

My Latest Kick

I often go through "phases" - I call these kicks. Especially involving food and my eating habits.

Two years ago I went through a zucchini kick. I couldn't eat enough of the stuff. I ate it prepared all different ways, all the time. That kick lasted a few months.

I've gone through a Raspberry Ice Crystal Light kick when I drank pitchers of it a day.

Most often I experience chocolate kicks. Although this may just be more of who I am than an actual kick.

My most recent though is my cereal kick. This has been going on for at least two weeks. When I go to the grocery store, I always have to check out the cereal aisle. Normally leaving with at least one box. When I browse the fridge or cupboards for something to eat, I choose cereal. Breakfast, Dinner, Snack - doesn't matter when. Doesn't matter the type. It varies depending on my mood.

I've had it twice today. Three times yesterday.

Anyone share in my cereal fixation?

I completely agree.

Every once and a while I get reminded that there truly are people in the world that care more about others than themselves. That's why when I saw this article in our local newspaper online, it made me smile. I agree full heartedly with what they are choosing to do.

Military personnel move to front of airport lines

Uniformed military personnel will now be able to shorten wait times during security screening at the South Bend Regional Airport, with a new policy that allows them to go to the front of the lines.

John Schalliol, executive director of the airport, has announced that signs will be placed at the entrances to both security checkpoints to allow military personnel on active duty and in uniform to go to the head of the lines.

Here is the text displayed on the new signs:

All military personnel on active duty and in uniform shall go to the head of the security checkpoint line. Thank you for your sacrifices on our behalf. This is the least we can do.

— The Michiana Traveling Public"

"We discussed this with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and they thought it was a great idea," Schalliol said in a press release. "We are confident that our patrons will share in our appreciation for the sacrifices our military makes for us every day by supporting this gesture"

This cracks me up.
