Learned a tough lesson with homemade desserts (even with lots of fruit)… they’re a no-go unless I make drastic changes or find the right recipe…

I managed to somehow get far too much produce the past week and am trying to use up what I can before it goes bad (at least I cleared out some space in my freezer so I can chop up and freeze the pounds of strawberries--whew!). Lost a few nectarines and about to lose some … Continue reading Learned a tough lesson with homemade desserts (even with lots of fruit)… they’re a no-go unless I make drastic changes or find the right recipe…

Knew I had to eat something in spite of my stomach… figured “what the hell” & gave Shirataki Noodles their first shot…

Yeah, my idea wasn't NEARLY as good looking as that picture... though that looks yummy. Well, guess I shouldn't be surprised as to how I was going to do it. What else would a fat girl who is kinda-sorta-afraid-to-try-new-ingredients do when confronted with something they've never used before, and aren't sure they'll like? Mix it … Continue reading Knew I had to eat something in spite of my stomach… figured “what the hell” & gave Shirataki Noodles their first shot…

To quit or not to quit: my own sunk-cost fallacy dilemma over games and communication issues…

I lucked out in getting a week off of work (basically had to beg for it, but too many yard repairs and I needed some good weather to pull it off) and have spent much of the time outside. Because I overdid it yesterday and wanted to make sure the scratches I got from those … Continue reading To quit or not to quit: my own sunk-cost fallacy dilemma over games and communication issues…

Q #184–Has anybody ever done the home delivery of “ugly” fruits and veggies thing, and how was it?

I was browsing for staples online for my pantries (since I finally have some slightly disposable income, I felt it was a good time to stock up) and adjusting my renewed subscription to Thrive Market (love their organic stuff, it brings out my experimental side). I don't know how, but somehow I saw an ad … Continue reading Q #184–Has anybody ever done the home delivery of “ugly” fruits and veggies thing, and how was it?

Blitz Q# 183: Have you ever had a small thing happen that makes you question your sanity… for a few hours at least?

This one's mine: Have you ever had one of those mornings where your alarm clock goes off, so you turn it off, lay there a minute, then start going about your morning routine. Then, after (what feels like) a few minutes to half an hour later, the alarm clock goes off FOR REAL? And then … Continue reading Blitz Q# 183: Have you ever had a small thing happen that makes you question your sanity… for a few hours at least?

A DIY day turned into a weekend & a half of “storage Tetris”…

I put together my shelves in my utility room (yeah, my utility room's becoming quite Frankenstein with all my additions and changes) a few months ago. There's always that weird wall where thanks to the A/C unit and/or refrigerator/oven hole, normal sized shelves are either too big or too small. A cabinet leaves too much … Continue reading A DIY day turned into a weekend & a half of “storage Tetris”…

Blitz Q #182: Which part (of the cheating) was the “mistake”?

This is a question I'd love to ask when it comes to infidelity. How many times has the story come about, in movies, Reddit stories, anecdotes, etc.? Someone comes home, hears noises/music, follows it, finds their significant other in bed with another person. And then the cheater says something like: "Omg, omg, omg, I'm sorry, … Continue reading Blitz Q #182: Which part (of the cheating) was the “mistake”?

I’ve been confused why the MSM keeps saying the economy is getting better. Last night, someone said what was bothering me…

Yeah, I just had to go to the dollar store around the corner the other day to get some stuff and maybe get a few extra staples for the pantry (oils, sugar, etc.) And imagine my surprise when the half shelf-set of Ramen was totally empty. The cheapest, quick-make, versatile food on the shelf was … Continue reading I’ve been confused why the MSM keeps saying the economy is getting better.

My blonde Houdini was at it again, but I got the scare of my life to go with it… legally, that is.

My two dogs were out this morning while I chopped veggies and tried to handle feeding and swapping food for 22 parakeets. Well, I was about a minute away from going to get my dogs back in the house when I got a helluva scare. Apparently, my retriever-mix (aka, Blonde Houdini) busted the swivel catch … Continue reading My blonde Houdini was at it again, but I got the scare of my life to go with it… legally, that is.

“It’s time for another good idea, bad idea…”

To more precise, it's a "Thank-you-thank-you-thank-you! We need this so much and have for ages" idea. Then there's the "Oh, heavens, haven't you done enough to turn us into a regressive backwater on the world stage already?!" idea. So, turns out that we're getting what many have wondered about over the years (and I believe … Continue reading “It’s time for another good idea, bad idea…”
