I was going to say never in my life have I cut a butternut squash without feeling like at any second I may sever my entire hand. That made it look like they were slicing a banana.

Everything is a trial by media these days.

Sick of hearing about the nurse that killed herself over this whole prank fiasco.

I doubt it was just a prank phone call that caused her to kill herself. I'm no expert but from what Ive read/heard about depression it is a culmination of things that can cause someone to become suicidal. I suspect there were other things going on in her life.

No those idiotic DJs are NOT to blame for her death, so can we stop this witch hunt please. What they did was stupid and childish but they hardly could have foreseen this outcome. Of course Twitter is full of idiots calling for their blood. What is wrong with people?!

Finally its my understanding that nurses shouldn't be giving out personal medicinal information on the phone anyway. Someone screwed up, but it was hardly the DJs, nor the nurse who put the call through.

You know why I love NC?
I love NC because there are so many people here who are even crankier than I am.
It just tickles me and makes me happy. : )

and spring, I told you not to tell Saria about The Cheesecake Factory. But now you need to come clean and tell her what city you LEFT without eating anywhere in it and THEN went to the Cheesecake Factory. Even I was disappointed. : (
: )

I already know she went to San Francisco, so yeah, I can't even.

Being considered crankier than you is quite the distinction.
But then I get laid way less, so.

HAHA!! You outed me!! Oh noes!!!

We left SAN FRANCISCO and went to the Cheesecake Factory instead of eating in the city!!!! The horror. The injustice of it all!

(there is a reason, but it would probably sound like the teacher on Charlie Brown talking at this point since Saria's ears/eyes are probably bleeding)

Lol! Omg, I'm just saying, when my family visited my aunt and uncle in San Francisco when I was younger (probably 11 or 12), we went INTO the city to eat at Cheesecake Factory.

It was on top of a Macy's, y'all! Who doesn't want to go there?!

Going to the gym to run 18 miles on a treadmill. Oh, the horror.

Hey, at least I got a latte at Blue Bottle coffee and I have to say it totally lived up to the hype I'd read about them. I never, ever have coffee that I enjoy without some type of sweetener in it (ever), but this was some major good coffee. Next time I'm getting a drip coffee.

I also had part of a cinnamon biscuit from Biscuit Bender that was tasty, albeit a tad dry. Then there are all the cheeses we brought home (Cowgirl Creamery, anyone?).... Thank the lard my jeans are stretchy.

My neighbor is the queen of finding the free sample, it's like she just *knows* where they are so I nibbled on all sorts of things all day.

You know, this video is loading at snail's pace, so as I was watching, I was like "you're really not going to hack up an onion when trying to do a knife demo?", and now I see the onion, finally!

True, I'm just cranky about the important things in life, like skewed frosting to cake ratios, proper cooking temps, the repugnant use of cornstarch and/or confectioners' in shortbread, and the baffling, nonsensical things that happen in the city of Boston.

Hey, we had a ferry to catch and since I can't swim catching it was kind of important to get back to the car! By the time we were all hungry enough for a meal there was no time to sit and enjoy a meal without worrying about missing the ferry. Next time...next time. Although I don't want to eat in any expensive fancy place and after Mr. Spring said "I don't like the looks of that place..." when peering inside the dining room of the Slanted Door I'm pretty sure there will be no fancy eating in our future. haha

The disappointing part of the day? We ran into one of Mr. Spring's coworkers and she informed us to be on the lookout for the naked guy walking around. All I could think was how cold he must be! We never saw him. *sad face*

Ha.

I never realized it until this thread, but (excluding a run to Jack-n-the-Box before the 6am Bay to Breakers run)) I've never eaten from a chain while in SF. They have some great places there.

Im cranky today.

It's the 2 month anniversary of my mother's passing
My sis just sent me text that she is most likely getting fired tomorrow
I have to poop
BF is making me angry
My mgr is driving me insane (and doesn't realize the irony of her actions). Please, just let me be.
My cousins won't stop asking me when I plan on cleaning out my mom's house. Again, leave me alone.

I'm off to the post office to mail out 36 packages. Wish me luck. I'm sure it will be a madhouse

Why didn't I get a Kindle like I originally planned? Now I've got this baffling thing that doesn't even do what I got it for.

$*it.

I really love how my co worker refused to stay at home or go home today. It's like she has something to prove. She is sick, her kids are sick, and she comes in talking about 200 people at her kids school having the flu and how she has not been able to do anything but sleep for 2 days. WTF is the point woman!?! We don't want it and I would rather not listen to and watch you moan and groan in the corner with your head on the desk all day.

I refer to what I do as "Bobby Flaying it." Every time he has to open a can of coconut milk on tv he seems to end up hacking it open with a knife. That's kind of what I do on butternut squash. I make sure to take a knife I'm not attached to, get it partially into the squash, and essentially slam it into the cutting board. It works....

Although I did act civilized with my most recent squash.


Also, this SF thing? I'm ashamed.
