Say It. I Dare You.

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!
So we're in a bakery the other day (which had THE cutest fondant Santa hat* cake EVER) and the little sign explaining what each thing was in the glass case said macaron was pronounced with a silent N. I can't even make my face say it that way, how?? Macaro sounds like a bird.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Spring, you can listen to it pronounced on forvo.com.
Call me old fashioned, but I think we should worship the sun and moon as powerful gods, and fear them.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

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.
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
she said she would change my grade after break........



I want it now. ugh.

Our grades go up after the break. So I have a month to suffer
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.

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!

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.
