Say It. I Dare You.

The rehab is worth it. I don't think I could live without it, especially in winter. My hair is fine and I don't have nearly as much as you but It's my go to conditioner.

I have to order the Daily Fix in the 32oz bottle because SO and I use it exclusively. Nothing cleans/cowashes nearly as well.

I want some of that pistachio dacquoise even though I'm stuffed.

I have been growing some pretty awesome carrots. These ones were in the oven within 20 minutes of me pulling them out of my garden:

Divegirl!!! I'm drooling over those veggies!!!! Beautiful!
Gorgeous carrots!

I can't resist the siren call of Bridge. Their piping bags are about 75% off.
Can one of you guys help me out. My hair won't curl in the front . . it is straight and in the middle/back is a 3a. I don't know what to do.

In my Senior year of high school, I took a drama class. I didn't benefit much from it for the most part and felt like all I did was wish I weren't in a crowd of younger students not doing anything, but there was this one assignment. We were each to plan and perform a completely silent performance that was not a dance to something like 2 or 3 word-free minutes of a song. I loved everything about that assignment, and even though I felt like I was being watched by an EXTREMELY judgmental crowd, I committed to my scene. I was begging people in a crowd to look at a picture and tell me if they'd seen my lost loved one, sometimes chasing them down, getting jostled, etc. and at the end, I saw the loved one offstage while caught in a group of people and eventually broke free to join him/her. I recall liking that I started the scene by running onstage and finished by running off. I also liked my teacher's impressed reaction (she was so surprised! I didn't care about any other assignment enough to fight through my distrust for my classmates).

The teacher had lent me a CD of hers, because she played some in class and I chose a song that was on it. I listened to that song over and over, practiced like crazy, then returned the CD on the day of the performance...and completely forgot what the song was. Actually, I knew the name of the song: Aria. So helpful. That only narrows it down to like eighty kajillion. I also had some vague idea that the composer's first name was common. Again, not helping! By the time I realized that the song wouldn't quit coming back at random intervals, I felt too weird about contacting an ex-teacher. Well, today I was shopping Amazon's MP3 selection, and I BLOODY FOUND IT! HELL TO THE YES!! It came to mind again while I was browsing through Classical songs and saw the word Aria, and I just sort of thought, hm, I think it would be New Age. It had that sort of sound. Then I clicked to preview any from a person whose first name seemed common. One sounded familiar. The composer's name is Chris Spheeris and he can stop trolling my brain now.

...It's a siggie.
Saria, it's a sickness. Every single year I make way too much and proclaim "Not next year!!!" and what happens? Too much food again. It's just so hard to cut anything that reminds me so much of my childhood Thanksgiving. Oh well, it's only once a year.

saria, at this point i don't even believe you are a real person. here is the thing, i can almost believe that you make wonderful food and somehow manage to cook it while posting online BUT what i cannot believe is how you take such beautiful pictures of the food too. the food sits on beautiful cloth or paper and is in focus and lighted just so. maybe you're a troll.
Stay up late enough and the world just randoms at you to get you to quit it. The ex-roommate who called out of the blue awhile ago just texted me - at nearly 4 am - "I'm sexy and I know it. " First thought: lol drunk text. My reply: "LOL good to know" with an added request for her email address, since I don't have it anymore and, oddly enough, was just feeling a bit guilty that I said I'd send one but haven't bothered remembering to ask for it. Now I've sent her a test email from my college email address, and I once again feel like I've been let off the hook about saying I'd contact her.

When I went to send that email, I saw one sent a few days ago from the TA who taught a scriptwriting elective I took in my Sophomore year. My Senior year, I had contacted him to ask if he'd be cool being a reference for a fellowship application since they wanted a Creative Writing instructor and he was the closest I had, so it has only technically been that long, but that's still a pretty long time, and he had declined being my reference on grounds that he'd have as much bad to say as good (I had some problems that quarter and was chronically obscenely late to frankly it's flattering that he wouldn't have more bad to say. I was desperate when I contacted him). It was a personalized invitation to come see a play of his. He may have kept all students' emails from all years in a file and asked everyone to see his play, or he could've remembered that I liked the idea of it back then. I wished him a packed house on opening night.

Then I got a political email titled "Your conservative uncle." Now, this could be a coincidence, or this organization could be full of spies who know that I have a conservative uncle who sticks out like a sore thumb from the rest of our liberal family. When I first saw it, it definitely took me aback.

...It's a siggie.

Good luck and welcome.
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.
Saria, do you ship?

I'm still surprised you've gone your whole life without encountering rice pudding. It's pretty universal! It's eaten in Asia (Thai style with coconut milk; Indian with saffron and pistachios), Africa (with orange flower water in the northern countries), Europe (France, Spain, Italy, England, and pretty much every country really), Australia, and definitely the Americas!
In the DR we call it arroz con dulce, to differentiate from arroz con leche, which is a version without sugar and flavored with anise and coconut milk. The sweet is coconut milk and cloves.

Okay, I've started a list of things to make, but still not done since I can never keep things simple when it comes to holiday baking.

Wild~sasparilla, my reaction to that drunk text was "oh god, that ****ing song". I couldn't even get through all of Todd's review of it, I found the song and the video with the jiggling man parts that grating.

Chocolate cupcakes with pistachio buttercream --- the breakfast of champions?
Umm, they're whole wheat? I technically used the blending method, so they're muffins!
Saria, I had some apple crisp for breakfast this morning. It's got fruit and oatmeal!
I'd love to have some Saria goodies, but I'd feel bad asking her to work around my stupid nut allergy.
And a funny Danae story: The other day, we were getting a few last minute Thanksgiving items. Danae was sitting in the cart, and when we got to the checkout, she was handing me the stuff to put on the belt. There was a can of pumpkin puree behind her, and I asked her to hand it to me. For some reason, she couldn't see it. In her frustration she said, "What the pumpkin hell?" in this little Texas accent that almost killed me dead. (what's really funny is that I'm very careful not to curse around the kids, so I'm not sure where she picked that up).

Actually, you're on the list. I always feel weird asking people for their addresses.
I had an idea for a couple of things I want to send you (not food), but of course I also want to send you some treats, and I thought you might like some nut-free stuff.
After dinner last night a bunch of us played Taboo. It was my cousin's K turn, and the first clue she gave us was something like, "You use this for your kids." My sister and I said, at the same exact time, "Leash!"

You guys need to pray that I never have children.
Eres o te haces?
Does your family say anything about lack of kids.
My mother and, really, so many other Dominicans, can't seem to understand the concept of a woman not being interested in having children. It's not normal as far as they're concerned, basically.
OMGGG!!!!!!! I hit a BIRD! :sob:
I realize that technically, the bird flew into my windshield, but it all happened so fast that I didn't have time to swerve. I feel horrible.

I've just seen my latest gas bill. How much? I've apparently used 284 of gas since August this year. I call BS on that. I'm waiting for E-On to reply to my hastily sent email.
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
