Bah! I want to go home.
In that case everyone in my office is poor. We cant even afford lunch breaks. You bring your lunch (or have 15 min to go out & get it) and eat as you work. Tell them to stuff their purchased meal!! People can be so b**chy, and rude.

Thanks Spec. Now I want fudge. I needed country ham this morning. The last time my sodium level was check it was really low. I rationalized that country ham would quickly correct this.

Banjo, that's cute and also my dream job.

Wtf!?!? Who requests a large show of police force at their wedding? Seasonal residents, that's who.

What is this blog name so I can bookmark it immediately and stalk it daily?!

I need to finish Sherlock. I kind of forgot about it.
I did finish Princess Tutu though! Shh, no talking about my staying up till 4 AM to watch the last four episodes. I'm glad Ahiru stopped crushing on Mytho and got lots of moments with Fakir, who was a much hotter piece of ass anyway.
The ending was really beautiful to look at, if bittersweet.
THIS .GIF GIVES ME LIFE. IT IS BEAUTIFUL AND MY HANDS MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE FLAILED A BIT WHEN I SAW IT. And thank you, I am proud! I'm beginning to truly believe I'm going to get past this.

The blog's name right now is danceswithshows.blogspot.com. I've never seen the movie it references, lol. It basically came up in a battery of television- and ranting-related puns. I'm trying to come up with a dance-related tagline for it since now that it's there IDK if I want to bother changing it. Something about following anywhere good writing leads but reserving the right to stomp some toes in the event of failure to be awesome. Or maybe the bad writing is stomping on my toes? If so, I don't think my feet will survive when I inevitably watch something really awful. Anyway, right now it's just an empty little page with blogspot's default formatting, but it has a name!!! Good grief are there a lot of people who blog about TV-related things.

There are a lot, but I declare yours the best!

Agreed. I think the dark hair helps a bit - maybe deflecting attention from his bone structure? But it doesn't make him attractive to me. I also am so not attracted to the character of Sherlock, though, and that would make all the difference. OMG, now I'm thinking of Molly. Poor, poor Molly! And for non-romantic reasons (SMH at Irene Adler's assertion and her whole representation. HATE. I re-named her Marge the Dominatrix to my friend because I refuse to call her Irene Adler, seeing as she has NONE of the necessary character traits.), poor long-suffering Watson. Which is, BTW, what my friend and I pretty much always call him.

Funny thing is that his bone structure is what's praised.
I really don't find his character attractive. He's a complete ass. And the thing is Moffat and co. go from making him oblivious about social norms to making him savvy and an ass. The Molly scene was incredibly cruel
.

I thought I'd want to say more about the episode, but I really just don't want it to exist. I don't know where to start without having all the badness just come and dogpile on. Like, people have moles and asymmetries and things that any non-Sherlock person would notice because people aren't factory-made and WTF Sherlock you are SO MEAN why would you agree with Mycroft at ALL in that moment I do not even understand what your writer even thought was his excuse for that one oh look I've already lost my ability to punctuate I quit this sentence. Can't do it. It is so disappointing seeing so much potential, like in that final scene which would have made an awesome way to repay a favor but was tainted by what it actually was, or even in the little things like two friends giggling about being called into Buckingham Palace, and then see everything get so incredibly stupid. I want my happy fangirl flailing back! Why can't we go back to the first episode, when all you had to do was go "oh hai I got you a Mycroft" and you did that in a cute, clever way instead of a needlessly cruel one?
I've ranted so much about this episode that I don't think I've got any more rant in me.

I need assistance from the clothing/fashion gurus because I love this bathing suit. Does anyone recognize the logo from the bathing suit that Dawson is wearing? (from Survivor)

Excellent . . .

I must go read it!

Ugh, my desire for an Egg Fancy from Mike and Patty's is making me want to just make my own, but I'd have to take time to try to make the special mayo for just one sandwich. When will they re-open?!
All the steamed pork buns I've had at dim sum have tasted of disappointment. Too goopy and sweet at Winsor. Too skimpy on the filling at Great Taste. So close at Bubor but for the flavor being off in that it was a bit sour, probably from too much rice wine. Also, I could taste the bleached pau flour they used. I think of my homemade buns and how much better they were.

When you've been slow all night and then someone decides that 11:55 is a good time to order food



Boo, I was reminded to check out Soma Intimates because the swimsuits I liked most when I was looking to buy one were from them, and they even still have the ones I liked. In sizes 14 and 16.
They have only two pages of small anything and they're all cover-ups, not swimsuits. Or maybe one or two fugly swimsuits. :/

Seriously, the curly gurus thing has to go. Or at least, they need to make it load as soon as a page open. I can't take it making every page jump around while I'm trying to read. I'm getting really really irked. Really.

I'm always on the app, so I don't know of this curly guru thing.

_______

I do not like new animation. Do not. It's weird and computerized, and looks like clay. And I'm super angry about the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Why does it have to be new? Why couldn't they bring back the old?

And Scooby Doo. Anything after 1979 is crap.

I just boil it for about 30 minutes, cut it in half cross-wise and then scoop out the meat and seeds.
You boil the whole thing? Whole? That's interesting.

Yep. I just boil it whole. I'm usually doing something to it afterwards, so I don't season and bake.

How come whenever I get my nails done my cuticles look really good for weeks after but when I do it myself they're all raggy within a few days?

I just realized we will be staying at SO's parent's house next month for FIVE days, 5 very long days. All because of the wedding he's in.

Mmm, tacos de cabeza. Aside from fillings, I knew Taqueria Jalisco was the real deal when I saw that they didn't offer a choice of corn or flour tortilla for tacos.
Now if only I could get tacos de oreja!

I lost 5 lbs!!!!

It's very hard for me to lose weight so this is huge.

In honor of that, here is a picture showing what 5 lbs of fat looks like.

This is the biggest button pusher of anyone I know that works in a restaurant. I get angry texts from my friend at least once a week saying the same thing. Slow (mother sucking lame as he calls it) all night, and then 3 tables walk in 10 min before they close. That would be at 9pm here, when they roll up the sidewalks. Unless "House" is somewhere in the restaurant name. Those places never close, or die.

Damn it!!! I want to deliver a happy and healthy baby. That is my dream call. It would be amazing, especially hearing the callers response when you instruct them to tie a shoe string around the cord. "Come again?" I always get so close, but it never happens.

Yawn. Snore. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. I am so tired and want to take a really long nap. Even if I just woke up at 11 this morning.

It gets worse because we have this super annoying server (she is incredibly annoying, giving unsolicited opinions about every little thing that is none of her business) who has a habit of ordering after closing. Last night, after we'd put out the order, so it was after midnight, she says "sorry, but I'm putting in a dessert order". Uh, that's not how this works! DIAF!
If the table was going to have dessert, it was your job to remind them when they placed their 11:55 order that the kitchen closed at midnight and get an idea of what they intended to order. You don't get to come in at 12:15 and tell us how sorry, but you're going to place another order because it's the table that got food five minutes before closing. That's just a "sorry, not sorry" gesture.
Ooh, I just realized I gave a woman poor directions. I was thinking that she had to walk down further in addition to walking left, but come to think of it, she just had to walk left. Crap, I feel bad now.
