I'm just all about some light and fluffy right now. Probably because I don't feel very light and fluffy after the dinner I had.

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 wonder if its the time of year but am I doomed to be single forever? Everyone i know has partners, is married and/or has children. But then I don't like where I live and the men who live here. I'm conflicted. And fed up.

Maybe a little fluffy.
I'll probably make the low-fat lemon one. It's from my flawless queen Alice Medrich.

I just delayed the Megabus buying tickets for two people who didn't have credit cards and as a result couldn't purchase tickets because this late they only sell them online. I was just about to board the bus when I heard the woman saying that she didn't have a credit card, and because I can't mind my own business, turned around and asked if she was going to be denied because of lack of credit card and that I'd put her ticket on mine if that was the issue. I figure a few more minutes of waiting is fine if it means two people don't have to wait hours.

Also, yup, I'm going home again. I just really have a desire to go home this weekend.

I've got to make some type of lemon dessert soon because my second mom just sent me a box FULL of lemons from their tree and they're huge! I'm going to be juicing and freezing juice just to use them all up. I can't let any of them go to waste.

Thanks, CL. The woman was so worked up and thanked me profusely, but it's not like it was any trouble, so why wouldn't I do it?

You should make lemon pudding cake, spring.

Rou, that sounds fantastic!


I was never the biggest cool whip fan and to top it off, I had a traumatic cool whip experience as a child. My brothers were watching me, but not paying full attention. My mom had left green beans in a cooker on the stove, I was waiting with anticipation and starving to death. I went to the refrigerator, and grabbed the cool whip. I was 4 and it just required a spoon. The moment I finished what was in the container, the lid blew off the cooker full of green beans. I screamed and ran. I thought they were mad at me for eating the cool whip. I was never the same.

I'm cracking up at the guy behind me snoring, and quite loudly at that. Buses are so uncomfortable that I am a little surprised someone can fall asleep deeply enough to snore like that.

I have been waiting on my blanket to dry for what feels like an eternity.

Thanks for reminding me I need to restart the dryer I need my comforter tonight! Last night I totally forgot that SDG&E said they would be doing something with the electricity and it went out in the middle of drying.

I totally want to go dance on a coffee shop table now, Fifi! And I was extra bad about my first coffee "experience" - I got a blended peppermint coffee drink at 1 am because my friend who feels pretty much no effect from caffeine was getting one, it looked really tasty and I'd never had coffee before so I had no clue that I couldn't take it. The tastiness was a bit of a problem, because that peppermint-y goodness kept calling to me and telling me it was only there for a limited time and maybe if I just had a liiiiittle bit...even though it was too good for me to stick to a few sips (I was good about not drinking more than half at a time the few times I just HAD to get one, though) and I was still totally crazed at 8 am from that first one. I don't even know what happened the next day. Every single time, my roommate was like, "Wild. This is a BAD IDEA." Already loopy insomniacs do not need caffeination.

...That last sentence has the ring of a mnemonic device to me. I could fix it so it's not so structurally borked, but...nah. That takes effort. Plus I like saying "borked."

Whenever I think about how many men are frequent watchers of all the most degrading, twisted material pumped out of the porn industry and the callousness toward women as victims that results, I can't think about it for very long before I start to freak out because society at large doesn't care and the happy little niche that cares about all the other things also largely doesn't care and this is a really big thing not to care about. At least an elephant in the room is just ignored rather than embraced.

My family all took turns tonight spinning a large plastic dreidel with a small wooden dreidel inside of it until someone finally got double gimel. Dreidelception?

Spell check, you need to step up your game. You don't know "dreidel"? Shame.

I really love Reyli's Amor del Bueno otherwise, but that first line is just atrocious. Someone should have been like "Reyli, you sure about this line?". Nobody can tell me that "como cuchillo en la mantequilla" is ever a good phrase for a love song (and I love butter), or any song that isn't a parody or about murdering someone.

Clearly someone isn't scrupulously reading my posts and paying due attention to everything I say or she'd know I'm on a bus as I type this. ROOD.

New blog post. FINALLY, SHEESH.

My a-religious (she doesn't really define herself as atheist or agnostic or anything and generally views such labels with disdain) grandma always has a secular Christmas celebration at her house, and we go and eat traditional foods from our cultures and engage in enjoyment of all the Pagan symbols of the holiday. This includes a tree, which it is tradition for me, my mom, my brother and at least one cousin (if that - I seem to recall that we Jewish grandkids were the only ones there at least once, which doesn't seem right) to come with her to pick, which would be way more fun if I got to wield an axe. [whine]Man, I don't wanna wake up for this. I don't want to be among people first thing in the morning. We almost always pick the first one we see and never look at more than a few, and all I'm gonna do is stand there hoping not to get sap all over my hands, toss in a groggy "yeah, sure, that's the one" or a nod where appropriate, perhaps prop up a tree or two and maybe put an unnecessary extra hand on our pick while my brother lugs it off.[/whine]

I technically "could" skip it, but come on. That's like when the choose-your-own-adventure book gives you the option of letting the fate of the world be someone else's problem or selling your little sister to the villain. I'm not REALLY allowed to do it.

I like the tree much better when it's in Grandma's living room bein' all shiny and junk.

I sorry, but that is FL for you. We are accustomed to it. I am glad that it stopped, hopefully it will continue to hold up.
It actually didn't rain much (I got here last week) until the wedding day when it decided to pour -_-.
