Yes and No

Candice did you really just buy a 4 foot tall picture of a unicorn laying in a bed of flowers?
Do you really intend to hang that in your bathroom for you and your guests viewing pleasure?
Is life really this awesome?

Yeah I hug myself sometimes.

scale from 1-10

These shoes are the meaning of true love for me:

mom I stole the kleenex

I have a feeling i'm going to be incredibly grateful for my good health in a few days.

I remember when I was little and I had a runny nose Grandma would always have a kleenex in her purse for me. She would get frustrated because I would simply wipe the dripping snot from my face instead of blowing my nose. I can hear her right now, "blow harder little lamb".

And then she'd make me a dippy egg with toast.

Oh the things i'd do for a dippy egg and toast right now.

rock out

I'm watching the travel channel and bizarre foods host Andrew Zimmern is eating aborted llama fetus. What kind of world is this? Do you think the people who are kind enough to show him around their magical cities ever wish he would just shut up? Just shut up and eat. You'd be in so much trouble at my house for talking with your mouth full of brains.

Woke up at 6 today to take my parents to the airport. Have fun in Rome, yall.
I'm sick as a dog but I went to work anyway and took some medicine that my mom recommended. It was equivalent to a few long islands and I was no longer able to function at a work appropriate level. Came home and watched tv all day. Man I hate TV.

Lisa is coming over to make soup with/for me.

I win!

I have to thank KC for challenging me at Donkey Kong all my life. I remember when he and I shared a bedroom with bunk beds and we had the little TV set up right next to our beds and I'd play way too often. While listening to some CD I had that played disney tunes. I had the song that Ursula sings memorized. I continued playing all my life pretty much. Seth and I used to pull all night tournaments. He always won. I think i'm pretty good though :)

coffee talk

I come next door often for coffee and sometimes just for a cup of water. The water tastes better here. Oh and I get impeccable internetz here as opposed to the 1 bar at my kitchen table.
Things I overheard people saying...

Motorcycle guy: I hate books man they're so boring. I havent read a book since 2003.
Me: thats sad dude
motorcycle guy: Im in the 18th grade.

nightvision: I've been reading the same book for 4 years. Cold mountain.

Night vision is a poet. Or at least thats how he introduces himself. "Hi I'm night vision, im a poet" For real guys. For real.

This place is wild and I love living next to it. Watching all these crazy people run around makes me feel... somewhat sane.

Use what you got

Veggie Black Bean Burgers!

I used this recipe RIGHT HERE and I made a few modifications like adding garlic and two whole chopped up peppers. So it looked more like this:

1 cup cooked black beans, half mashed
1 cup cooked brown rice, mostly mashed
1 T cayenne pepper
2 cloves garlic, chopped fine
2 peppers of your choice, depending on how spicy you like it (I dont know what I used from my parents garden but woo it was spicy)
salt to taste
oil for frying

Basically just combine all ingredients and mash mash mash! Form into patties (I think I ended up with about 5) and heat the oil in a large skillet. Fry on both sides until brown(er than they already are from the black beans :)). They will kind of fall apart so we're looking into making more modifications to the recipe but honestly they were so good it didn't even matter that they were a tad mushy. I served mine on a whole wheat bun with tomato, avocado, and some veganaise.

Somehow the pictures I had have disappeared but if you've seen one black burger you've seen them all, right?

I'll leave you with a picture of my cat.
