Damn you dislocated jaw/slipped face disk! Damn you!
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
I bought bottles and bottles of vanilla when we went to Mexico. I gave some as gifts and when mine ran out I regretted that decision.

@ Saria: That explains a lot, but I still like mine sweet.
Only now I can stop blaming restaurants.
Even when served for dessert, it's just lightly sweet. Once a pastry chef where I worked serve it with candied kumquats and huckleberry compote plus ice cream. It would be inedibly sweet in most cases if you made the batter sweeter. For breakfast/brunch, I tend to not like huge amounts of sugar; the French toast I mentioned earlier at one place was made with fennel raisin bread and served with the honey and lemon yogurt and powdered sugar. It was so good and didn't taste like a sugar bomb.
The sweetest batter you'll get is for torrijas, which is a Spanish French toast, rabanada, which is Brazilian, or one in which the bread is soaked in creme anglaise instead of a raw custard. The creme anglaise one is still not that sweet.
Brazilian rabanada has sweetened condensed milk in the custard. Heh, this is why Latin American sweets tend to not be my favorite --- lots of sugar.
Xcptnl, just be careful about Mexican vanilla because it's not always a safe buy or a quality one. You need to have a reputable source.

Tahitian vanilla bean is probably my favorite, but they're all wonderful in different ways. Madagascar bourbon is that classic vanilla flavor, the one that complements and doesn't overpower. Mexican vanilla bean is more spicy and with that tropical sugar smell to it. And Tahitian just has that floral scent that makes it the standout flavor in a dessert. It's great for when you want something cleanly flavored and to taste of vanilla.
I'm sorry, TRBL. I hope that this brings you the peace and the time to find something better.

I accidentally set a salad (in a styrofoam container) on fire yesterday.

This is a new low, even for me.
For some reason, I went outside earlier to move my car from the street into our garage (because last night there was about a quarter inch of snow on our driveway, so of course my car couldn't make it!), and didn't put on gloves... I don't know why I didn't. Within like a minute, they were totally numb. But I still needed to put a Shop Vac in my trunk. So I proceeded to attempt to do that with numb hands.

Not only did I manage to cut my finger at some point, which I didn't feel until I got inside by the fire, but I also put the Shop Vac in my trunk at a funny angle, so a bunch of dust and junk from inside of it dumped out in my trunk.

All of this because I couldn't bring myself to put on a pair of gloves! *headdesk*

I've been up for an hour and a half. I've showered and drank like 3 cups of coffee. I still feel like I just drug my butt out of bed 2 minutes ago. My husband was sick last weekend, I blame him.

(The bag was on the stove to avoid the need for a new entry on "What Sadie-Kate ate.")

I just hope that the record notes that I tried to eat a salad yesterday, but was prevented by random circumstances.
Kasutera again. Bigger pan. Thought infusing the milk with some of my jasmine tea pearls would go great with the flavor of this delicate honey-sweetened cake. Too bad I have to wait a day to try it!

Thanks, nynaeve.

I like your stories about your Dad a lot.
Only now I can stop blaming restaurants.
@ CIBC: No, I haven't. Is this a recent movie? Like November/December recent? I don't think I ever heard about it prior to your post. It sounds like you are lucky to have found such a good BFF. I need to start saying "all the good ones are either taken or our BFF's."

He got this look on his face and went, "Wait. CIBC. Are you trying to tell me something?"

Yes, yes. I was going to set you up with a friend who was a lot like me...and then I was going to show-up! "I'd love to be there to make the introductions, but I can't make it...(wink). and then we'd meet by a waterfall and you'd say, 'I was HOPING it'd be you!'"
Melted salad. I love that story.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

I really was going to eat it. The night before a friend said, "You're taking these leftovers home. Every time I call you, you're eating cookies and complaining of a stomachache."

I was going to eat the salad and call her, leaving a message with crunching sounds on her voice mail. You know, just to have it on record that I do eat vegetables. I mean, I'm normal, in that I do prefer chocolate in every instance, but I like vegetables, in their.....you know, way.

Hard cheese for me, it seems (literally, since when that stuff cooled off, it was like a little yellow boulder --- blech).

If I could have murdered the co-worker, I would have. She is supposedly being banned from eating microwave popcorn ever again. We'll see.
