Again with the Reflections on my Birthday

The first and only earthquake I ever felt was on my thirtieth birthday. It was a pretty clear signal my thirties were going to be fascinating. My thirty-first birthday was the first time my parents met the Viking, and I fell even more deeply in love with the man. I already knew he was my …

Merry Imperfect Christmas

ugly presents

Slowly  over the years I’ve taken the reins for my house’s Christmas. My sister hosts the family get together because she and my bro-in-law are amazing, and they breed incredible children, but there are still things my parents and I do. We have our little fiber optic tree, and we have gifts we get and …

*Sings* Reach Out and Touch Base

I know the lyrics are “Reach out, touch faith,” but I hear “Reach out, touch base” or “Reach out, touch face” Well. Cats and Kittens, today is both rant AND porn free. I realized (when my mom sighed at me and told me) that I’ve been very “every little thing is a feminist issue or …

As Promised

So, since most people who read this are also my Facebook friends, you know that I made the Viking a cake for Valentine’s Day. I was trying to figure out something to buy him but nothing seemed like a good gift (that I could actually afford), and then I remembered Tina telling me people who …

The Completely Unrefined Thanksgiving

That right there is a picture of the product of my hard work, study, planning, and worry. It’s a damn turkey, and it was delicious. I had the most awesomely unrefined Thanksgiving. Let me explain. Thanksgivings are normally just my parents and I. It is easy to not do anything for just three people. Last …

The Week of Exhausted

Yesterday, I went to the super Wal-mart TWICE. I hadn’t done any of the shopping for my mom’s birthday meals and cake or Thanksgiving. The first trip only took two hours. I decided after I got home that I needed to make green bean casserole Thursday, and I desperately needed couscous. I’ve turned into that …

The Scones

This isn’t a real blog entry. I just have an awesome scone recipe that was stuck on my fridge at peril of being lost at any second. I decided to put it here including my little changes. It came from some magazine. I don’t know which one. I do know there is a doctor in …

Midnight Baking, Love Poetry, and Not Sleeping.

It is 5:12am and I haven’t been to sleep, per say. I took a nap at about 9pm until midnight. I’ve been awake with a whirring brain since then. I think my voodoo of Selina is finally starting to come back some. I midnight baked, like the old days, and then started a new story. …

Schedules are for Suckas

I went to bed last night at 3 am and woke up at 7 am and could not get back to sleep. I have spent the day whirling around like a coked-up squirrel.(Except for that hour or so long mini-coma.) I have things to make fabulous! Seriously, I talked on the phone with someone at …

So Many Lame Cooking Puns

I am at a loss for anything really interesting to write. I blame all the food I have stuffed into my stomach. I have been looking forward to today for weeks because I made my first Thanksgiving meal. I started this morning with jiggly puffs and bacon for breakfast. I have learned baking helps put …
