Beware the attack cat

I need to rant, here goes: Math is going to ruin my New Year's Dinner.

So, I have this ham for dinner today. As I go about starting to get ready to put it in the oven, I read the instructions. 'Bake at 325F for 14-19 min per pound.' Ok. No problem... The tag on the outside of the ham says something to the effect of '$5.99/kg, total cost: $28.56.' Ok. I just have to divide the total cost by the price /kg to get the weight in kg, then multiply it by 2.2 to get the weight in pounds, then divide by 14 to get the time to cook it.. oh, that ends up in total minutes, and my oven bakes by hour increments. ***BAMF!* My head asploded.**

That is too much math to do when you're 1) hungry, 2) worried you're going to ruin a ham, and 3) not friends with math.

The science/math nerd says:

Ok...

$28.56 x (1kg/$5.99) x (2.2#/kg) * (14 min/#) x (1 hr/60m) = (28.65*2.2*14) / (5.99*1*1*60) = (879.648 / 354.4) = 2.48 hours.

...let me know if you need some actually hard math done.

Happy New Year, fellow Protectorites...

May your hair, your teeth, your face-lift, your abs and your stocks not fall; and may your blood pressure, your triglycerides, your cholesterol, your white blood count and your mortgage interest not rise.

May you get a clean bill of health from your dentist, your cardiologist, your gastro-enterologist, your urologist, your proctologist, your podiatrist, your psychiatrist and your plumber.

May what you see in the mirror delight you, and what others see in you delight them. May someone love you enough to forgive your faults, be blind to your blemishes, and tell the world about your virtues.

May New Year's Eve find you seated around the table, together with your beloved family and cherished friends. May you find the food better, the environment quieter, the cost much cheaper, and the pleasure much more fulfilling than anything else you might ordinarily do that night.

May the telemarketers wait to make their sales calls until you finish dinner, may the commercials on TV not be louder than the program you have been watching, and may your check book and your budget balance - and include generous amounts for charity.

May you remember to say "I love you" at least once a day to your spouse, your child, your parent, your siblings; but not to your secretary, your nurse, your masseuse, your hairdresser or your tennis instructor.

and.... Happy New Year!

I saw things last night that I wish I had not and let's leave it at that. Though a highlight of the night was being at a stop light and a cop pulls up next to us. He was playing Spider Solitare on his computer. This was at 12:15.

Oh, I got the math done, I just didn't LIKE it. I wish labels would take weight into account, and calculate cooking time for you, or not mix metric and Imperial. That'd be easier than me trying to figure it out

May your 2011 be better than your 2010!

And however you celebrate your New Years Eve, may you end up home safe afterwards!
