Let's see. What has made me happy today?

1. Making candy. Today I made some Oreo truffles. They're really simple: take a package of Oreos and stick 'em (not all once) in the blender. Get 'em so that you can't see any cream. Then take an eight-ounce package of cream cheese at room temperature and mix it in with the Oreo stuff. Ball 'em up, stick 'em in the refrigerator for about an hour, then take them out and dip them in the melted chocolate of your choice. (I always melt my chocolate using a double broiler and adding half a block of wax.) They are pretty good. However, I think I like the other candies I make (coconut balls and peanut butter balls) better. Still, the point is that I like making candy.

2. Band From TV. I haven't heard much of their stuff, but just the fact that these guys get together and perform amuses me. And it doesn't hurt that I love Greg Grunberg (Matt Parkman on Heroes) and Hugh Laurie (House on House, and if you didn't know that, shame on you!). You can find their performance from Friday night's Leno on Youtube. And while I'm talking about them, I have to say that I never cared for Jesse Spencer's character Chase on House, but I adore him for playing the violin with the band.

3. LEGO video games. I have Star Wars 2, Indiana Jones, and Batman in the LEGO games, and I adore each and every one of them. LEGO Star Wars 2 is still my favorite, despite the difficulty of some of the sections. Anyway, they're loads of fun to play. I've spent many pleasant hours this weekend playing the Batman game.
