Saria, I sometimes feel sad that you can't read a recipe without dissecting it or eat something just for the fun of it, whether it's considered 'good' or not. And that you can't accept that others might like things that you don't. Honestly, not a criticism, just something I think of often. I and many others here really admire your knowledge of ingredients and your skills in the kitchen more than you probably know. None of my business or concern, I know, but I just feel bad for you sometimes.

I feel the same way about my boyfriend who is a landscape contractor. He can't look at a garden or a stone wall or a pond without doing the same thing - dissecting it without enjoying it or wondering how anyone can like it when he thinks it's ugly or not made well.

Food/cooking and gardens/landscaping are a huge part of my life. I do some minor paid gigs in both fields but really I'm just an amateur and I'm really glad of it so I can just enjoy them.

my neighbours Tammy and Mike and i are going to have to talk to the people who have the house at the back of our properties. there is a MASSIVE dead tree in their yard that is raining broken branches down on us.

when the high winds started last night (and during those storms last summer that generated all the tornadoes) i feared that thing coming down on my house - or Tammy and Mike's place. with the location of that tree, i think both our houses would be hit if it comes down.

these people are a bit scary compared to the old neighbours; they had drinking parties every night in the warmer weather (i could see them outside collecting bottles EVERY morning) and the parties result in screaming arguments with attendees. (they even had a nasty argument the day they moved in while drinking with the friends who helped them move.)

maybe it would be better to report the dead tree to the city... but i think they'll only do something if it affects public property.

I wasn't criticizing the recipe. I just looked at it and saw that it's a cream biscuit recipe with yogurt in place. I look at recipes, at how things are linked, because there is always a link, how they work, and what they'll be like. As for the other part, I just think if as a writer you call it low-fat, you need to specify that you're starting with a low-fat product. Greek yogurt has a nice amount of fat.

But I do take issue with the idea that I don't enjoy food. Honestly I find that offensive. I love food because it tastes good. A lot of things just don't taste particularly good to me, and just won't give me the pleasure that something way better will. So, I won't bother. But more to the point, I don't crave them. I think people don't get that. I don't eat a lot of junk food because quite simply I don't ever get a craving for it. The way some people apparently can't resist candy, chips, or a bag of Cheetos just doesn't apply to me because I LITERALLY NEVER get a craving for them. It's not some form of self-denial.
I seek out and make so many different things because I'm always seeking that enjoyment that I get from food.

I must say, I agree with jeepy on this, and it kinda makes me sad too.

But Saria, I don't see where jeepy said you don't enjoy food, though, so if that offended you, perhaps try re-reading what she wrote? Because I really don't think that's what she meant.
No, I've never said or thought that you don't enjoy food. And I'm sorry that you're offended but I've wanted to voice this for a long time. When I like someone and feel bad for them for any reason I just like to let them know.

Not saying you need to care what I think or need to change a single thing about yourself. What I said was pretty clear and I stand by it. I feel that way about various people who 'live' their professions 24/7. I feel bad for them and I let them know. That's just me.

I guess my penance for procrastinating is that I now have no time to clean or do my paper because the kids have a full day of stuff for me to chauffeur them around. Ugh.

Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.

I feel like this is a weird age to have my sister be nearly nine years older. I'm finally old enough that she treats me as an equal, as do her friends. At school a lot of the advisors and staff are her age and I treat them as friends (though obviously with boundaries.) It came up because while she was looking through the packet for the research program I'm in, we realized that one of our staff advisors, who's a teacher at another high school in my district, went to college with her. I don't think I'm going to tell him mostly to retain a boundary but it felt very weird. I don't see my sister as an authority figure but I do see my teacher as one even though they're the same age.

So weird to see glimpses of old friend's lives on fb, who you've grown apart from. Just realised an old friend's sister was in the Borgias!

Not sure how big role she played though!

One of my friends who has been married two years and was always "happy happy happy" on Facebook et al is divorcing.

I'm sad for them. It was over the top. I definitely rolled my eyes a couple of times.

But I wanted to believe they could really be that happy!

I wish I had friends out here. Hanging out with my bf & the people he knows all the time is just frustrating. Now, his sister who I cannot stand, is moving out here. Woo hoo more fun for me -_-.

I need to find some where to volunteer so I have something with my time on the weekends.

I also hate that I've been trying to go home for the past 2 months but haven't been able to because something always comes up to ruin it.

I'd be losing my mind if I didn't work M-F.

I wish I was drinking with one of the other curlies, drunkenly consoling BeckStar.

As it is, I am now going to try practicing "feathering" eyeliner, at which I will probably stink.
I'm so glad to have nice neighbors. And also glad for good timing because I was just about to go wash my face and take my bra off when the doorbell rang and my neighbor wanted to compare disposable baking molds to see if mine had holes like hers.
