If you like swearing – which I truly enjoy, btw – and you like cooking, you will LOVE this tumblr.

Oh. My. Gawd.
I couldn’t stop laughing.

But you know what?
There are some really good recipes in there.

Excuse me while I go cook some fucking awesome shit.


It looks like cocaine, but it’s only powdered sugar, which is so much better!



I really couldn’t help but laugh at this. I first saw it as a commercial before I watched a different clip on YouTube, but I had to find the video alone to post.
Well done, writers; well done.


Through the Fog

I woke up rather early this morning – or late last night, depending on your view – with a horrible migraine.

I have no recollection of dreams, but an overall feeling of panic and dread. And the sensation that someone was hammering toothpicks into various parts of my head. I am sensitive to light and sounds are amplified to an impossible decibel.

I’m currently a little doped up. My head is fuzzy and I only have partial vision, which is making the creation of this blog post difficult. I have never been so happy to see that squiggly red line. I’m sure this would be a whole new level of typing without it.

While I am slightly more lucid, I hopped on to my work email to clear out the crap and respond to emergencies.
Of which there are several.
What. The. Fuck?

I was just in of Friday and I only had 1. And that wasn’t really an emergency.

This is what happens when I try to take a sick day.

Just Give Me A Reason

Oh. My. Gawd.
This song is lovely.
And the male vocalist is Nate Ruess, the singer from Fun. – he compliments her so well.



I don’t feel bad or anything… I just don’t feel good.

It’s not even a melancholy feeling.
I just feel, I don’t know, tired.

For the past few days, I haven’t been able to get warm. I have been constantly hungry.
I haven’t had much of a drive to do anything.

I mean, I have things I want to do. I even started some stuff.
But I just can’t seem to finish anything.

I think I just need to nap. I would totally sleep in tomorrow, too, except that we got a few inches of snow and I need to move my car off the front street and move it around the side so I don’t get towed.
I was actually really surprised that St. Paul declared a snow emergency – until I saw the residential streets. Ugh, what a friggin’ mess! Icy ruts and mounds of packed snow. I couldn’t even get into the garage from the last bit of plowing.


Well… I get to rest up tomorrow. Nothing big until the evening.
I go out, move cars, and go right back to bed.

I’m yoinking this from Elfkat, as today is “Super-static hair day”. Flat ironed hair, which should look sleek and awesome, paired with really cold, dry air equals hair flying everywhere. :/

I was lucky enough to have a travel bottle of Jergens in my purse.
I was not lucky enough, though, to realize that my hands were cracked and now they burn and are breaking out.
But, my hair is tamed now… sort of.


Time to find my calendula lotion.
It’s here somewhere.

Now that that’s over….

I am soooooooooooooooo hungry.
All day, I’v been craving food. Not anything in particular, just food.. Whatever I had in front of me.
English muffins, cookies, applesauce, enchilada casserole.

I feel like I ate every 40 minutes, but I can’t get full.

I know that, in some of those cases, I wasn’t full because of the type of food. But it has been ALL food. Nothing seems to satisfy.

I just don’t want to be hungry.

I need to find a good, healthy snack that will fill me up.
Any thoughts?
Send me your recommendations and recipes!

On Valentine’s Day, hubby and I watched ‘Evil Dead’ (I wanted to watch that Wednesday, Ash Wednesday, but had class) and ‘The Princess Bride’.

Every time I watch that movie, and I mean EVERY time, I tear up – if not full-out cry.

Princess Bride is everything a movie should be.
It’s funny, romantic, exciting, and creative. The casting was spectacular, the score was incredible.
I love it.



25th Anniversary cast photo

The past few days, I’ve been thinking about the movie. I clearly remember when it came out… and knowing that we just past 25 years just kinda makes me feel old.

And you know what?

I think I’m ok with that.

Seriously, WTF?

I’m beginning to suspect that I may be more than just depressed.

I feel like the world is crashing down around me, that nothing I do is right. I feel like I am losing control over even the smallest things.

And yet, I have moments where I feel like things are fine. Like I should be grateful for the things I have.
Because, really, I have a good, comfortable life.
I have a steady job, relatively good health, a home, a husband that I love and who loves me.

My life is a good one.

And yet, I cannot find peace.
I am restless and melancholy and empty.
There is a pain in me…. I can’t say it’s my stomach or my chest… there’s a pain. A hollow, almost burning pain.  It reminds me of when I am very hungry, to the point when my body starts to shut down. All I want to do is sleep.

I would like to think that I will get through this.
That it’s maybe a symptom of SAD (we really don’t get much sunshine up here… but fortunately spring is slowly keeping in.

It’s just really, really hard.

What did I do?!

So, on Tuesday I got a parking ticket.
It really was a dumb mistake; I misread the parking sign. I thought it said “No Parking 6am to 2pm Except by permit”. It really said 6pm to 2am.

A minor thing, the ticket was paid yesterday (the earliest I could pay it).
There are no excuses here, I eff’d up. I had no issues paying the $34.

But tonight….

Tonight my car got towed.
Apparently I was too close to an alley or drive way. I guess the rule in Minneapolis is 5 feet.
So I was towed. And ticketed.
No my poor hubby has to bring me to get my car in the morning, pushing back his bed time . He works at a bar, so this would be the equivalent of me going to bed at 2 or 3 rather than 10 or 11.

I feel lucky, though, as the charges are reasonable.
All that and it doesn’t break $200.
It’s not a small amount of change, but it’s not going to break the bank.

But, as I think about it,  I wonder what I did.
Is karma coming for me?
Did I wrong someone?

How can I cleanse myself of this bad luck?

All things considered, I had a pretty good night. I learned the mechanics of “the double back”, a movement that has eluded me. Now I just need to smooth it out.
Work on my technique.
Stay in performance angle.
Practice spins, and keep my feet closer together so I don’t drift so much when I dance.

I got this.

Now I just have to go get my car.
And an eye exam.
