Baby Almond Cakes

Sunday, 31 August 2008

I’ve finally found a recipe for simple almond cake. You have no idea how difficult it is to find a decent recipe for just plain almond cake online. Sheesh! I stumbled across this little gem last night, and while it’s actually a recipe for funfetti cupcakes, I just omitted the sprinkles and used little cake […]

Being Dyslexic is the Coolest

Friday, 29 August 2008

Well not really… It’s actually kind of annoying. I’ve been dyslexic all of my life (obviously), but didn’t know it until several years ago. It was never severe enough for it to be blatently obvious. Plus when you’re a kid who doesn’t know any better, you don’t realise that what you’re going through isn’t normal, […]

Quote of the Afternoon…

Friday, 29 August 2008

The best part of having shallow friends is that you know you’re pretty, because if you weren’t, they’d never be seen with you in public…

By the way, for those keeping tabs; It’s been over 24 hours and I still can’t get the Poo Song out of my head. That Great Might Poo has some serious sticking power…

The Joys of Being a Front Desk Receptionist

Thursday, 28 August 2008

I work as a receptionist at the front desk for a very large title company. You know; mortgages and stuff like that. We have closings in our office from time to time. Today there are three on our floor. A[n extremely unattractive] woman came up to my desk and said she was “here for a […]

The Great Mighty Poo

Wednesday, 27 August 2008

Of all the songs to have stuck in my head (ALL morning)…. I cannot, for the life of me, stop singing the The Great Mighty Poo song. If you’ve never played Conker’s Bad Fur Day you probably have no idea what I’m talking about and think I’m totally nuts. If you HAVE played CBFD…. you’re […]

Cheesed to Meet You

Tuesday, 26 August 2008

http://www.gadling.com/2008/08/21/united-to-charge-for-meals-on-international-flights/ Does anyone happen to know where any of the obnoxious, over-paid airline CEOs live so we can egg their houses? Poopheads.  I won’t say anything else about the matter.  I was just hoping someone else would read the article and be irritated along with me.  I used to like United, too.  It was the […]

No Caffeine and Needy Clients Make Homer…Something Something….

Tuesday, 26 August 2008

Yep.  It’s 10:15 on a Tuesday morning and I still haven’t had any caffeine.  Note: I tend to be exceptionally irritable until I’ve gotten sufficient amounts of caffeine in my system.  (See image above.) What’s a Blog for, if not to whine and complain like a five year old brat? That is all for now. […]

Gingerbread Log Cabin Replica

Monday, 25 August 2008

My [large-ish Irish Catholic] family has a log cabin that my dad and Uncles built in 1984 (the year I was born!) It’s our little piece of Heaven on a lazy river in BuFu Illinois when we want to escape the city. It’s not perfect, but it means a lot to us. Well, some of […]

How do you do…

Monday, 25 August 2008

Oh boy. I’ve done it. I’ve gone and gotten myself a blog. I suppose I ought to start out with a disclaimer of sorts… How ’bout…. I have no idea what I’m doing… No seriously, though. I don’t really have anything specific to tell the masses about… I don’t “do” anything… I just um…wanted to […]
