I was just typing about doing them I the toaster and you beat me to it. They taste better and it frees up space in the oven Hash browns work in the toaster too, although the next time you cook toast you can smell fat, but that's a small price to pay for a convenient midnight hash brown sandwich.
Awful film. I went with my girlfriend and her mate, luckily we had the forethought to take a bottle of Jack Daniels in a bag and ended up sitting on the floor facing away from the screen sharing the bottle. I'm not sure why we didn't just leave. The only films I've ever walked out of were Sleepless in Seattle and Mrs Doubtfire, both of which once I was outside I realised my friends were still inside and I had to wait pretending to play the arcade machines until the film ended.
