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 wish that the obsession with Parisian macaroons (which everyone now calls macarons to differentiate from American even though the ones they mean are just one type) wasn't so huge that it's just about impossible to find anything on other French macaroon types. And I don't really care about Parisian macarons and their tooth-aching sweetness!
I think my sister is sneaking home for Christmas!!!!! I haven't seen her in 6 months. They live out east and my BIL just got home from Afghanistan, so they had decided to just have a quiet Christmas at home.

She has made a couple of random comments about stuff on FB though and I think she's planning on coming home
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

Tradition is often the enemy of common sense and good food. Witness our sous chef who takes offense and thinks it's beyond the ****ing pale to make Hollandaise in the blender. You know why they made Hollandaise with whisks? Because they didn't have blenders. I find it interesting how people will now tell you how you can't possibly make a Genoise cake by hand, that it must be done with mixer, yet tons of cooks act offended like it's some awful act of laziness to make use of technology for the sake of efficiency. So how come you must use the technology for something that was traditionally done by hand, but not for another? No reason, just stupid, unfounded tradition. Not to mention that the blender aerates Hollandaise beautifully making it better (I pretty much hate Hollandaise sauce outside of a few dishes).

Show me an actual blind taste test that proves that "the microwave destroys flavor".
Tradition says to never ever salt beans. Guess what? That's wrong. Science proves it benefits, not harms.

Tradition is the basis for shoddy pie crust-making science. People still believe that fat coats flour even though it's the other way around. People still make the process harder than it has to be. It will probably take another 200 years for current information to be put to use by the general population because people will continue to insist on "the way my mother/grandmother did it is the right way".
I'm no molecular gastronomy nut, but it drives me batty having to listen to cooks with their heads up their asses when they can't be bothered to do any research save hanging on to the latest bit of "badassery" that their chef idol put out without explanation go on about how much better they are for remaining stagnant by adhering to ****ing tradition and "classical technique".

It can't be helped either since they're made with tant pour tant, aka equal parts almond and sugar, and you need that for them to turn out. That's why they need to be tiny. You can't really handle more than a bite or two unless you have a monstrous, insatiable sweet tooth.

I have officially eaten 1.5 vanilla bean mini loaf cakes. If I think about it, that means I'm half a cake away from having consumed 1/4 lb of butter. Totally worth it, not gonna lie. And the cream that also goes into the batter. You try not going back for just one more slice!
Yay, blog post of joy!
Sigh, Imprisoned. Not a great ep (the first season of Avatar takes quite a few episodes to really get going), but George Takei gets to chew the scenery as the warden, and "that lemur is earth-bending" never gets old. Plus the Avatar: The Abridged series episode of this is hilarious.
This episode forms the basis for a lot of mockery of Shyamalan's flop movie, as I'm the movie the earthbenders all combine to do the Macarena just they can move a pebble. Oh, and unlike the show they were on land the whole time. And yet they didn't think to earthbend. Just like in Shyamalan's universe nobody thought to just put out the Fire Nation's fire since they couldn't produce their own actual fire without a source!

Also, Haru's father is voiced by the same voice actor as Plato on the animated series for The Book of Virtues, which I watched every episode of when it was on PBS. #nerdiness

There you go again, gums flapping in the wind.

My lower back is sore too.
So, being the nerd that I am, I couldn't wait to see my final grades... I took a chance and checked them tonight, and lo and behold, they were posted! For the first time EVER, I got all A's! Granted, two of them are A-. But I'm totally okay with that, and made the executive decision that I'm allowed to call those A's.

Like, seriously, even in like 6th grade, I'd always have that ONE annoying B or C in math or science. So, I might have done a little dance when I saw these grades!

Kay, sorry. I'm done bragging. I've been doing a lot of that lately, huh? Oops! If you ever get sick of it, just remember that I work in a place with no attractive men, and then you should feel slightly better.

And it will steal your innocence

Aww, yeah:


The Legend of Korra got nominated for an NAACP award. That's for excellence in television programming regarding people of color.
JGL, I love you but you are not ageing well.
I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.

Speaking of pudding, how has it been 20 years since I graduated high school.?. And more importantly, how has someone not put a better quality version of this 18 yr old Barry & Levon skit on Youtube?
