The N is not silent. People are always cutting off letters when it comes to French. I constantly have to hear brunoise and vichyssoise pronounced wrong because people cut off the end.

Now that I've explained the macaroon thing you won't be confused anymore!

The whole macaroon/macaron thing confuses me and they should really come up with new names for all of it. I always thought a macarOOn was the one with the coconut in it and a macarOn was the little cookie type thing with the filling (which I had for the first time after moving here and I really like the few I've had).

*I totally typed that "Santa hate" the first time around, glad I caught that.
Me too. And I just ordered a dozen macarons for my dad!

So are they pronounced the same even though one has two O's and the other only has one O?

I say it mack-uh-roooon either way. Whatever gets the macaron into mah face.

Watching last night's episode of The Voice.

Shirtless Adam Levine playing guitar, y'all. Have mercy.

No, they sound different. The end sounds more like rawn like lawn than roon like loon.

First of all. I suddenly wish I watched the Voice.

Second, the n shouldn't be completely silent, but it should be less... Prominent, I suppose.

I just said macarawn out loud and it sounds so ridiculous that I may look less stupid calling them both "roon like loon" and pretending (haha) ignorance.

Call me old fashioned, but I think we should worship the sun and moon as powerful gods, and fear them.

There's a woman at work that smells of stale alcohol. This is the woman we are not allowed to say anything about. Ever. At all. Apparently she smells this way because of some medication she takes. I may have to accept that, but I don't have to believe it.

You know what? I went to school with a dude in a wheel chair who was on some meds. he had an old alchol smell to him as well. I never said anything because he was really nice and i didnt want to offend him. maybe there are meds that can make you smell like old booze??

She does take a lot of medication, so it's entirely possible. But she is known to drink a lot as well.

I'm so mad at my teacher, I can't move from the couch, I've now become couch ridden. I will never leave this recliner until my grade is changed in January.

I got my copy of the Bourke Street Bakery cookbook. It's BEAUTIFUL!

Attachment 28524

Attachment 28525

Attachment 28526

Attachment 28527

And I also got my Sigerson Morris sandals! I had them on my list forever and ordered them when they finally went down from their $250 price tag to an affordable $88.
This is the second pair I ordered because they run large and I had to exchange. They're more golden than it looks in the pic.

i wish i was taller so shopping for clothes wouldnt be such a pita. mens selection is not large to begin with but when youre small it makes it miniscule. its the one area that im in the 1%. id probably have more luck looking at Barbie's Ken collection at toysRus
