I think Friday is my favorite day to post. It's a great to excuse to expunge all the total, complete randomness that is in my brain. I love it!
I drove past a store yesterday, on the way home from karate. On the sign out front it advertised: "Smokes, Gifts, Hookas"
Ok, I'm not hip on the jive, and all that, or whatever that means, but what the hell are Hookas?
My first impression is this: is that gansta talk for hookers? Is this store advertising prostitution right out in plain view? In Zion?
I know I live in my naive little happy Mormon bubble of simplicity.
Anyone care to enlighten me?
Lobster farts are THE stinkiest, rankest, reistiest, nastiest smelling farts EVER!!
Do Lobster's fart? Seriously?
No, I mean after eating Lobster....duh!
I discovered this after making Lobster-stuffed Ravioli the other night.
Yeah, I know! I'm soooo gourmet! I have this very special secret recipe, too.
I slaved for hours on end to cook this delectable meal.
Do you want my recipe?
OK, I'll jump on the "share your latest culinary masterpieces on your blog" bandwagon and share.
Step 1: Go to the freezer.
Step 2: take the package of premade Lobster Ravioli off the shelf.
Step 3: Open the package.
Step 4: Pour the contents of the package into a pan of boiling water.
Step 5: 4 minutes later, put the Ravioli into a fancy bowl, and take all the credit!
Whew! That was really, really hard. I'm exhausted just thinking about all that hard work!
About the Lobster Ravioli. You may know by now that my KJ is the world's pickiest eater. She's straight vegan, won't touch any kind of meat or bread....eats strictly rabbit food.
Well, guess who ate the best on Lobster ravioli night! You guessed it!
I was so proud of her! I'll definitely be making that again!
Yesterday, while the monkeys were all at school, and it was just me and my sweet little niece playing, I decided to go out on a huge limb, and NOT throw away my black bananas.
Instead, I made banana bread. From Scratch! For reals!
Yeah, me!! (said in my best London Tipton voice)
Motherboard taught me how to use my little "post ahead" feature on my blog. And I am loving it! I already have all of next week already all done! Maybe this will solve my blogging crisis. That being that I cannot seem to get off my computer to save my life (or my children's lives for that matter). I think the only problem with the post ahead think is that I will write all these different posts (I've been using it for all my tags, so I can do it and save it for later), and then will come up with more stuff to write about.
You know me....lately instead of everything in my brain coming out my mouth, it all comes out my fingers. (On the keyboard! You know...typing! What were YOU thinking, you perv!)
I don't know where the italics are coming from. That certainly is NOT me! Could my crazy lady be trying to sneak out of her hiding place?
Not today, crazy lady. NOT TODAY! If you even try, I'll go run 26.2 miles! That's stop her!
On a more serious note.
Here's an update on my little music career progress:
I have been writing letters to record labels trying to get "discovered". One responded with a very polite, "No Thank you" One came back return to sender, no such address. What is that all about?
So, I've resorted to sending messages to everyone I can think of on Facebook. So far, I've begged for help from Kurt Bestor, Michael McLean, Marvin Goldstein, and Kenneth Cope. I'll be writing to a few more tomorrow.
Greg Simpson was my seminary teacher in high school, so I'm also trying to get a hold of him, too.
