    You're so much nicer than I am.

    Oh, wait! I forgot to mention that they gave it to me wrapped in the plastic Walgreen's bag with the receipt inside showing they picked it up on the way over.

    I really do try to be positive, but...
    Durp.

      My gripe for the day is EGGS. They're really starting to piss me off. If I crack 3 of them into the pan, one yolk always breaks. Then if I try to flip them over, at least one more yolk breaks. Then when I go to eat them there is nothing to soak the yolk up off the plate so I'm left to try and slurp them off the plate like a dog. I give up. From now on it's scrambled or else I'll just cook the hell out of them so the yolk is hard. There goes my O3s from eggs.
      So there is a reason to keep the yolk uncooked... Nice.

        Don't give up yet! Keep practicing your egg mastery technique and you will spare the yolks. Here's what works for me:

        1) Tap gently on edge of skillet until cratered/fractured. Failure = tapping too hard.
        2) Hold egg fracture-side up. Insert tips of thumbs.
        3) Hold as close to skillet as possible. Pull thumbs apart and dribble yolk sideways onto pan. Failure = dribbling from too far up.
        4) Use spatula to peel whites away from yolks. Dice the whites up, push them around, flip them over. Leave yolks untouched. Failure = cutting too close to the yolk and breaking the cuticle.

        Better to leave some whites uncooked than to overcook the yolks.

          I crack them into a bowl or a glass measuring cup so if one breaks, it doesn't get the pan all messy. and, it's easier to scoop out

            • My GOTD is less griping and more being depressed over people's behaviour.

              I'm studying early childhood ed. The textbook chapter I was reading today was talking about how as children learn to speak, they use one word utterances to mean different things. The adult should be able to work out from the context what the baby means and it helps development to say the word back to the child in a sentence. For example, the baby points and says 'ball'., it might mean, 'ooh, I see a shiny red ball over there' or 'Please give me the ball' or 'that child is playing with a ball'. Makes sense.

              Except, instead of using an example of a toy, they gave the example 'cookie' as possibly meaning 'I want a cookie'. 'I dropped my cookie'. 'I'm done with this cookie'. WTF? If your kid is so young that they are only speaking in one word utterances, why the heck are they eating cookies, much less to the extent that the the word is part of their limited vocabulary (and worthy of an example in a textbook!) CW may be all about the grains, but I thought it was pretty generally acknowledged that cookies were a treat.

                Same gripe as mine.

                  Well, that was depressing.

                  The circular logic applied by the author was pretty air tight within it's own frame work.

                  EDIT-it's the comment section where all hope for humanity dies. that's where the rationale is laid out.

                    Are you using free range eggs or the cheap stuff? I buy my eggs at Whole Foods, but they have locally grown eggs which I get. They seem to have tougher yolks and tougher egg shells. Add some finesse to your flips.

                          circular logic, or that all men-even gay men- are rapists by proxy?

                            No, because according to Berkeley Police Department only women can be raped:
                            the definitions used in UCR are generic in order not to exclude varying state and federal statutes relating to the same type of crime. These definitions are provided to assist the reader in understanding the classification of crimes submitted in the 2005 Annual Report. The offense definitions in the UCR Program are based on the common-law definitions found in the Black's Law Dictionary, the Program's 1932 Standard Classification of Offenses, and the National Crime Information Center's Uniform Offense Classifications.

                            Rape: The carnal knowledge of a female forcibly and against her will, is incapable to give consent due to mental disorder, developmental or physical disability, intoxication, or unconsciousness, or if the act is committed by trickery.

                              You didn't read that blog very carefully did you. Gay men who view gay pornography, visit gay strip clubs, pay gay prostitutes, or do any number of other things, like having the belief that people ("men") have "needs for sex are rape supporters who collaborate with the patriarchy to continue the rape of women. And therefore rape women by proxy.

                              Seriously, I dare you to read that whole fucking blog post, and the comments section.

                              If you don't self mutilate, or commit suicide out of sheer frustration afterwards I will grant you a single iota of respect.

                              I double dog dare you.

                              • My GoTD is 12 hours straight of a class on teaching theory, lesson planning and evaluations.
                                Dear lord my brain hurts. And my butt.
                                Too much sitting and too much thinking.
                                And tomorrow is another day. Glad as heck I actually want to take this class or I'd be ready to kill something. But ouch anyway.
