Since I can't reblog myself
I am posting a picture of what I made this morning in case the evening crowd wants in on it. Recipe is here: Yeah, it was good.
A Fitting Welcome
My boyfriend got home from a 3-day camping trip with his buddies last night, so I had to make something special for breakfast to welcome him home. I think this fits the bill. Crispy edges! (aka: The Best Part. Thankfully Ryan disagrees, so I get them all to myself.) Cream cheese glaze. Oh lord. Doctored-Up Bisquick Coffee Cake: For the cake- 2 cups Bisquick 2/3 cups low-fat...
Our Idiot Brother
Just saw it. Here are the reasons that you should, too: Rashida Jones as a nerdy baby butch in a super cute relationship with Zooey Deschanel Adam Scott as a nerdy sci-fi writer Paul Rudd as a sweet hippie burnout References to Dune Adorable blooper reel during the credits I’m sure I’m leaving lots out, but just take my word for it. (Plus, Adam Scott counts as extra points)

“We are not evacuating Rikers Island,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg said in a news conference this afternoon. Bloomberg annouced a host of extreme measures being taken by New York City in preparation for the arrival of Hurricane Irene, including a shutdown of the public transit system and the unprecedented mandatory evacuation of some 250,000 people from low-lying areas. But in response to a...

It took me 7 hours. I kind of want to start the next book but I’m pretty sure that would be foolish, because I would end up not sleeping. But I’m so disturbed by the first book that I can’t sleep anyway….
We are approaching hour five of my reading of The...
OH NO RUUUUUEEEEE!!!!!
I love you guys.

OMG The Hunger Games
I just sat in a bath for like three hours because I couldn’t put this book down long enough to wash my hair and get out of the tub. Every time the water turned cold I’d add more hot water and say “just a few more pages!” When I got in the tub I had read zero pages. I have now read 157. My toes are prunes. So there’s update #1. Now back to Katniss and Peeta.
Trigger Warning for ED/Body Image issues So, I just had my first appointment with a physical trainer. Before you give me the side-eye, let me explain. I just renewed my gym membership and as part of the package they include three sessions with a trainer. Last year when I signed up I basically decided to never use the free sessions (mostly because all of the trainers looked scary to me), but this...
I just bought the Hunger Games Trilogy
as well as the first Game of Thrones book. You tramps talked me into it.
Watching Joss Whedon’s shows is like being repeatedly punched in the gut. Why did you just kill Doyle, Joss? Why do you hate us??
This episode of Angel where they’ve all been brainwashed by the “sensitivity training” into talking like therapists is cracking me up. Seriously, as a therapist that is kind of how I talk sometimes and my friends mock me. I can’t help it! I use lots of “when you _____, I feel ______.” It’s just a habit. The best part of this episode was when Angel shot a...
How have I never watched Angel?
BRB, fixing that now.
This is the recipe I always use when I make chocolate pudding, and it is amaaaaazing. The bonus is that you can eat half of the deliciousness with a spoon (and homemade whipped cream, duh) and then turn half of it into popsicles. Uh, yum. Chocolate Pudding- 1/2 cup brown sugar 3 heaping tablespoons cocoa powder A very scant 1/4 cup cornstarch Pinch of salt 2 3/4 cup milk 2...
Also, the dog keeps licking my hands as I'm trying...
I can’t tell if it’s because she likes my playing or wants me to stop. Or because I have chocolate pudding remnants on my hands.
In which I remind you all of how awesome my dogs...

I also just bought this wahn. I haven’t opened it yet but I am essite! I am a pretty slow wahn drinker so I am glad it supposedly stays fresh for up to several months in the fridge.

tehblackbird said: The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia. If you like completely awesome train wrecks, that is. Seen it! And loved it.
What should I watch on Netflix Instant?
My boyfriend has a pimple on his chin I keep calling it his Chimple and laughing like a dumbass. Can’t help it. Chimple!
Our water heater is broken
So I just boiled water to take a bath like a mother-effin’ pioneer. It was tremendously unpleasant, and I ended up having to wash off in the freezing cold water anyway, because I felt all soapy and gross.
Random thoughts of a food nerd
…could I make a pie crust out of Cinnamon Toast Crunch? …or pretzels? …OR CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DOUGH???
Let's Talk About ED: Eating Disorders Are Not... →
Consider the people most likely to develop EDs. The genetic vulnerability for anorexia, bulimia, or binge eating often coincides with a genetic tendency toward anxiety disorders. Victims of trauma–especially childhood trauma–frequently develop EDs. And EDs often accompany other serious psychological illnesses such as depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Yet no one ever says that...

Vanilla bean lemon curd cheesecake bars. Jealous?
So, this is real and we’re watching it. Urkel is in it. Except instead of looking like this he looks like this but he’s still horribly stiff. Every actor in this movie is terrible. It’s amazing.
