  • first gluten free buns were had. they aight, but they're dense and crumbly in the middle

    i think i decided what nice thing i want to buy me for my day of birthing.

    i can literally spend an hour each brushing out the dogs and literally the same day or the next they will find a way to get covered in nettles all over again

    lobster tails are defrosting in the fridge. the roast took over 8 hours to stop being leather, so pot roasting will be today. cheesecake turned out like i wanted it tho, which is awwwwww right

    i noticed that peter gets raped a lot on family guy, last night. also, the quagmire's sister is dating an abuser episode made me feel all uncomfortable inside. i don't like that feel. stupid memory. but 'i killed you!' 'i choke myself every day you son of a bitch' was amusing

    and it bugs me when someone says 'a REAL WOMAN wouldn't like so-and-so'. feh.

    a new set of mice tried to move in the crumbly homestead. they demolished the remaining poison and dragged glue traps around everywhere and somehow got in the garbage can to poo poison colored pellets inside. right when the dead mouse pee smell was finally going away. bastards.

    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

    • Those mice are absurd! I once caught a mouse in my parents' basement by luring it under a trap with peanut butter. The trap was a shoebox propped up by a stick, with a string tied to it. I hid out of the way and pulled the string when the mouse was underneath. I then proceeded to freak out because OMG MOUSE IN THE BOX WHAT NOW. My dad slipped a piece of paper underneath and we carried it outside. It ran off the back deck (but was apparently fine because I did not see it below). I got the idea from a book I read in first grade, in which a cat propped up a frying pan with a fork. Why it thought a mouse would be lured by steak, I don't know.

      I struggled a lot with amusement & horror when Seth MacFarlane did the Oscar hosting this year. I watched at least an hour of it. It was funny, but then I realized I was laughing at some pretty horrid and sexist jokes. There were quite a few jokes about abuse that even had the audience laughing awkwardly. Family Guy (most of the time, to me) feels more like a social commentary, but there are some episodes that come across a bit too heavy-handed.

      I don't know if you're into Joss Whedon stuff, but Hulky and I are working our way through Angel. I like it a lot more than Buffy. All of the characters are a lot stronger. We had to skip through a lot of one episode, however, when Fred (chick character) was being pursued by Wesley, who was out of his mind, and accusing her of dressing provocatively on purpose and... you can guess where that was going. I was surprised at how horrified we were. It was so uncomfortable to watch =\

      • as long as the death happens out of my sight i'm okay, but if i were to see the mice dying i'd feel horrible. i guess they want me to feel guilt after their death which is why the smell lasts so long :| a mouse got in one week last year. for days it roamed around, squeaking, creeping til it's face was against the inside glass on my tv stand and stared at me, gorging on butter i'd left out. i bought humane traps and baited them with cheese (til i read they don't like cheese) then peanut butter, moving it daily because the mouse moved daily. no dice. the little twit bypassed it every time

        i finally lost my cool thinking of all the bacteria it was leaving all over everything and put sticky traps all over the place including one on the counter where i knew it was traipsing frequently

        the mouse jumped over it ):< i grouped all the traps around that opening and finally caught him. i saw him struggling all scared and furry and my murderous intent poofed into awwface.jpg. i wound up helping him off the trap with grease and released him in the woods. because i'm a push over when cute things bat their eyes.

        if/when i see mice invading again, i'm highly tempted to make a box trap. then make it a tiny lounge with soft things to lounge on, and feed him til he gets chunky and can only roll from one place to the next. because fat animals are cute to me, i like cooing at little butterballs

        i like seth, i can laugh at the cringe worthy stuff on family guy and american dad without thinking too deeply about it, but every once in a while.. ouch, why is my mindless entertainment hurting me

        i never got too invested in buffy or angel :/ but now that i'm browsing his imdb, i see i liked roughly half his work.. weird.. i read part of an interview with one of the creators of bates motel who said they showed a rape because they didn't want to shy away from character development/real life. i mean.. i know it happens in real life, but i didn't want to see it

        just like i didn't want to see/imagine all this. and i hope it's a joke.

        i'm hoping very hard

          I love the frying pan and fork trap. LOL. I've seen every episode of Angel (and Buffy). If you're at the Fred stage, you're almost at the end. I won't spoil it for you. I always liked how both of those shows could be about scary stuff, and yet never take themselves too seriously.

          Happy Birthday!

          32? Oh, gurlfriend, you're in a tough decade, but it's pretty much a breeze once you hit 40.

          Lobster tails - an absolute luxury yum! I'm on my way! If you see a 20 year old rag top with OR plates in your driveway, you'll know I've arrived.

          Many happy returns of the day.

          • you can be my guinea pig then 'is it good? how does it taste? is it overcooked? undercooked? how can i make it better? help me help you'

            thank you for the happy birthday

            i ordered my happy birthday to me things, as penance i'm going to do some spring cleaning for my wallet pain. i think the thing that bugged me the most is the tax added on. i don't order online too often these days so that was new for me, BUT, i'm getting a ton of freebies and samples. i like freebies and samples.

            a few weeks of stress and tiredness and pains has made me look rough around the edges and my forehead crepey crinkles more pronounced. fuhhhh.... *yawn*

            this might be good

            it's like the spinach bread from the primal blueprint book

            i tried to make my pot roast like my mom's pot roast, but like any food of hers i try to recreate it wasnt the same, and this time gave me heart burn

            i'm burned out on gluten free items already and it's only been a day and a half. so the thought of lobster mac isn't as appealing as it was

            • i dread heading out to the homestead. that dead pee mouse smell. i do not like it.

              a couple years ago i tried making sauerkraut. it didn't get all under fluid so some mold grew on top and i got paranoid and threw it away. now i'm like 'wtf why were you stupid?' but i think that was before anxiety meds and i was on a botulism kick

              i want to try again *cue rocky music*

              i fell asleep early and stayed asleep and thank you sweet baby jebus, i slept all night

              i guess i could clean my car

              feed the birds again

              the wisteria i thought was dead that surprised me by budding then died again when it got cold is alive again

              that thing is a tease. and my outside smells like roses my kids are gonna think i'm some weird old lady for having so many rose bushes, but i'm gonna have amillion

              i finally took pity on my smaller bush and propped the drooped down limbs up. the roses are pretty big and heavy, and the plant is small, but growing

              the seedlings are growing slowly. TIME FOR FERTILIZER!

              food damage was fried chicken. normally i don't like it, but when you're hungry it's the best food in the world

              • Now I have to look up primal spinach bread. I'm not too fond of greens on their own, but I love them in eggs and breadtype stuff.

                Did you fry the chicken in lard? Fried chicken is something that eludes me. But I do a passable fried squid. (Eye-talian comfort food.)

                • it was conventional, and probably fried in liquid plastic, but there was so much salt in it that i was in heaven regardless

                  here is the recipe for spinach bread
                  Spinach Bread | Mark&#039;s Daily Apple

                  i made it once, while my sister and her kids were visiting. i didn't hate it or love it, but one of her kids liked it

                  i'd forgotten about the threat of flies. last dead mouse go-round it was still cold outside, but no longer. now that it's warm the insidious fly threat is fully threatening-y and the homestead was full of flies

                  o. m. f. g.

                  it was like a cloud. there were flies everywhere. there were even dead ones on the floor. i opened the doors was WHOOOOOOOSH out they flew. the smart ones anyways, some stayed inside. and i felt like i was in a scary movie about demon possessed houses.

                  so i cooked lobsters last night. ....... 7 minute steam = overcooked and the meat tasted bad. they'd probably been dead for a month or so before getting caught in the traps and frozen. i was mad and disappoint, and it was so gross i didn't even feed it to the dogs

                  • i have a difficult time censoring myself under the best circumstances. so when someone is annoying me, no matter how polite or not rude my response is, i'm making this face to myself



                    and i'm reeeeeeal annoyed. but i got a cookie and waka hug, and a bear on the foot, so that helps.

                    and i am really tired of being in pain 80% of the time. that counts bed times.

                    and i think i'm due for another break down, because everything is getting overwhelming again
