The recipe I found on the web a couple years ago for microwaved potato chips was almost the same as yours, but there were two important differences. First is that you don't spray the parchment paper: "Using a mandolin or v-slicer, slice one medium russet potato (peeled, if you like) as thinly as possible, taking care that all slices are the same thickness. Line the turntable tray of your microwave with parchment paper and place the potato slices on it without overlapping. Salt lightly and sprinkle with your choice of seasonings." The second difference is a waiting period in the middle of the cooking: "Microwave at full power –- watching closely -– until spots of brown begin to appear, about 4-6 minutes. Turn off the microwave for 1 minute. Microwave again at full power until the slices are golden brown. (Be very careful not to over-brown or they will taste burned.) Remove from the microwave and allow to cool. Repeat until all potato slices are cooked. "For salt and vinegar chips, dip the slices in cider vinegar, arrange on the parchment paper, and sprinkle with salt before cooking." Good luck!

I think what really grabbed me was that Mary Stewart's main characters were never vapid little helpless ninnies -- they really *drove* the books. I can't remember if I read the books before seeing the Disney version of "The Moonspinners," but I do remember nearly jumping out of my seat when Mark (Hywel Bennett) lurched out of nowhere to scare the bejeebers out of Nicola (Hayley Mills). Being as it's the only scene I remember, I'd have to say the book made a much bigger impression. :)

Another Buffy quote: Buffy gives the team some curt words before they go off to battle the current Big Bad. Spike: "Well, not exactly the St. Crispin's Day Speech, was it?" Giles: "We few, we happy few..." Spike: "We band of buggered."
My favorite was the one with the traveling salesman and the "Beware of Doug" sign - and Doug hiding behind the tree, of course.
