Well. Today I found out that my body is 33% fat. Clearly, the only reasonable reaction was to come home and eat an ice cream cone., okay, I worked out for 50 minutes! I didn't just stick dessert in my face, all right? I got some cardio in. I'm thinking, two days a week I'll do treadmill/elliptical/bike, and the third day I'll work on the machines and target actual muscles. Mostly the ones in my butt, lol.

I finally watched a preview for season 4 of Heroes. I avoided them all summer because I know I can't keep my enthusiasm up over months and months, but I can cope with waiting a couple weeks, and it's looking pretty exciting now that I'm letting myself give a damn!

12 geeky cocktails. I could totally slam a few Pan-Galactic Gargle Blasters. :3

No one is home, it's so nice and quiet... time for that bath I've been promising myself, I think. \o/

millions of peaches, peaches for free

Last post of the night:

My mom said that there are a zillion and a half (estimate) peaches at the Salvation Army right now.

What are your favorite recipes using peaches?

I'm already going to make a peach pie and a peach crisp, and there's a recipe for peach jam that sounds easy enough and shareable. Anything more creative or interesting would be very welcome!

I have 790 words on the Remix fic now. About 200 of them are the beginning/exposition (and kind of suck), and the rest are from the end of the story... so I just have to fill in the blanks. Which is not a simple thing, but the smushy fluffy bit demanded to be written first. *pats the fluffy couple*


trust me, I'm a professional

say what? )

Even after a shower, my hands still smell like chocolate. :3 I am going to eat the hell out of this cake after dinner (omg stuffed peppers yussss) and basically sit here and get sugar high and watch Star Trek. :D

I have a couple of Dreamwidth codes, anyone want?

Also, just for reference, in that poll? I was asking for physical mailing addresses, not e-mail addresses. So future fillers-out know. Because I can't e-mail you things which may not necessarily be inherently evil.

I order you to bake!

omg you guys.

Chai cupcakes.

These things are exquisite. So perfectly moist and flavorful and, oh god, the best cupcakes I have ever made, srsly.

If you like chai at all, MAKE THESE.


ohhh, most inappropriate icon ever

So, in that last post I linked to books that looked like they were photoshopped?

One of those books was "Natural Harvest: A Collection of Semen-Based Recipes"

It did not take much effort to find this book online, complete with a "look inside!" feature. Please allow me to share an excerpt:

Yup. Go ahead, look at a couple of recipes. I dare you.

Oh wait, this is important too!

It doesn't come with nutrition facts, though...


hey man, there's a beverage here )

I am giving [ profile] beeblebabe recipes for Christmas, but there is no reason not to share with everyone. ♥

Golden Gate Minestrone )

Portuguese Kale Soup )

Crockpot Hamburger Soup )

I fail at using a standardized recipe system! xD It's easier for me to group ingredients. Is that weird? It's just simpler to refer to A or B than "add x y z and w"...

So my ingenious "Jesus Christ it's a lion! Get in the tub!" scheme did not work on Butcher as well as I thought it would. However, we both made it through unscathed: he did not claw me, and I did not wring his scrawny little neck. xD He's still wet, but surprisingly not that mad at me. He only calmed down for the last 15 seconds or so of being rinsed off.

He got a bath, I got a shower and a headache, and soon we're both going to bed. I'm working hard toward getting my links post done, but it may end up waiting until tomorrow afternoon for maximum linkage.

I am very, very happy tonight. ^_^ I also sort of wish I knew how to make vids, because I have two ideas that I think are pretty awesome... and they're both het, what is this season doing to me? *ahem.* It's kind of nice because I can finally squee with my mom over something, though. She's totally taken by how cute and oblivious Matt is for Daphne.

Two more episodes tomorrow, and then she can actually watch the new one with me on Monday! \o/

Wooo boy. Tomorrow I am going to try to remember the shopping list for necessary items, and then make veggie curry for dinner. I found a few really, really interesting pie recipes, so I want to go all Ned, too... but I'm waffling between cranberry cheesecake pie and cream-cheese swirled pumpkin pie. Om nom fuckin' a nom!

Okay. Last thing before bed, I guess. [ profile] beachkid linked me to this amazing video about a pet lion who remembered his parents after he went into the wilds of Africa. SO. CUTE. I got tears in my eyes, seriously.

I know I'm posting a lot today. Shut up.

Kristin and I just made Lazy Man's Beef Stroganoff, as it was dubbed by my great-aunt Joanne who passed the recipe to my mom. I prefer to think of it as "lazy-ass delicious stuff". My recipe, let me give you it:

Make 1 bag egg noodles accoding to directions.
Cube and brown 1lb beef.
Add 1 can cream of mushroom soup.
Add 8oz sour cream.
Heat through, serve over egg noodles.


And, might I add, DELICIOUS.

So... close...

Must finish....

Shoulders so sore....


Complicated baked goods are hard, you guys. But: they damn well better be worth it.

Chewing through the sides of my fingers, when there's no nail left to bite...

Here, I uploaded these for [ profile] jacintillating, now you all take.

The Chapin Sisters - Boys Don't Cry

The Chapin Sisters - Toxic

Hey, guys, I can tell how many people download... and I'm not going to be one of those filesharing tools who password-locks things, but it would be cool if you could tell me what you think of the songs when you listen to them. I don't want a "downloaded" I want a "hey, that was sweet, sounds like this one song I have, let me share you it" or "wow, who would even bother covering that song?" or, shit, I don't know, leave me a recipe or something.

Speaking of recipes, make your own Girl Scout Samoas. OH MY GOD lkdjsal;kjdkja I am going to shove my face so full of those when I make them. And I will.

Also. The rest of this image is poorly cast, but TINA FEY AS TINKERBELL FTMFW. I lol'd so hard. It may be iconed soon.

I am cold, and hungry, and I don't really feel like fixing either of those problems. I lose at life skills!
