Organic peanut butter gets really hard when left in the fridge for a while. When attempting to remedy this situation using a short stint in the microwave, be aware that the stay-fresh wrapping on top of the peanut butter is made of metal, and you're more than likely to have small pieces of it still attached to the rim of the peanut butter. The result of this expedition is a wonderful blue glow and crackle, followed by wafting black smoke out of your microwave.

(It only went *pop* twice in my case, so I don't think anything was too badly damaged, but in the surreality of 3AM lunch making, everything scares the shit out of you. Also, I want to know who ate the other *four pieces* of ham that there were when I was done with making lunches yesterday morning. Sigh.)

Ah well. lunches made. Got in 2.5 hours of work after everyone was asleep, cleaned up a couple of important emails that were waiting on responses from me, and now I'll head to bed in prep for getting upi n 4 hours. Or maybe I'll stay up. I don't know. my body is not really happy with either choice...
