I figured out how to prevent the 16-ounce Marie Collander chicken pies from burning in my microwave. The manual says it's 1100 watts, but I think it may be a bit hotter than that. The new version of the MC chicken pie says you should cook for nine and a half to ten and a half minutes, but when I cooked for more than about seven and a half, the rim would burn to charcoal.
Here's the solution. You carefully pry the pan off before cooking. Then you bend the rim down all around. Put it back in the box, cut a slot in the top, and with that I'm able to cook them for eight and a half minutes with almost no burning.
Meanwhile, a picture that may make some people cringe, below the fold.
I've got bed bugs. They've mainly been biting me on my right hand. (It's definitely bed bugs; I found a dead one in my bed and looked it up.)

I did not know that they would have favourite body parts. I have a damage on right foot that I put for athlete foot.

It's my right hand because that's where they are. It's the upper left corner of my bed, if I stand at the foot and look at it. When I sleep on my right side, that's where my right hand lays.
And yeah, there are all kinds of fecal traces. (And I just thought I'd mention that I didn't ask for any advice. Or suggestions. Especially unsolicited ones.)

Yeah, I'm gonna talk to the apartment manager about it.
I tried once before, and they sent someone, and she said, "Nope! Nothing here!" That was about a week after it started. Now the evidence is quite a lot different.
Also I have Exhibit A, an actual dead one, to show them.

In my defense, the suggestion regarding the use of orbitally launched atomic ordinance for domestic indoor pest control was not an entirely serious one.

Also, I hate unsolicited suggestions and advice. (Even when you think you're being funny.)
