I Went Blond, Among Other Things

And yes, I chose to spell it “blond” over “blonde.” Anyway, yeah, hi, it’s been over a year since I last posted. I assure you I have been writing, just not here. Would you like to know what I’ve been up to? In no particular order — -As mentioned above, I went blond. I was reluctant to do it, because being brunette felt like an … Continue reading I Went Blond, Among Other Things

The Fun in Funfetti

Yesterday I whipped up some Funfetti cupcakes for a friend’s gathering (but ended up coming home with half of them… danger zone!). Which, compared to last weekend’s pudding cookie sweatshop (I’ll write about that soon), was a very easy and relaxing task. Lately if I am performing time-consuming or tedious tasks alone in my kitchen (cooking projects, washing dishes), I will listen to WTF with … Continue reading The Fun in Funfetti

Snack With Caution: BEN & JERRY’S LATE NIGHT SNACK

Typically I am pretty good with my portions. If you give me a big chocolate bar, I will eat it in small chunks over a series of days. If I bake a spice cake, I will eat it in small pieces, and it will take me at least a week to finish. (I actually did that, but I didn’t blog it yet.) (WHY I did … Continue reading Snack With Caution: BEN & JERRY’S LATE NIGHT SNACK

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES Returns Tonight!

Appropriately enough, the Season 2 premiere is called “The Return.” It’s on tonight at 8pm, on the CW. I am very excited to watch it. Coincidentally (or not?), “True Blood” has its finale on Sunday. Vampire shows don’t like to overlap, I guess. They’re lone wolves. What does one snack on while watching a vampire show? I’m not actually going to eat this, because it’s … Continue reading THE VAMPIRE DIARIES Returns Tonight!

Oh Brother: BIG BROTHER’s Wizard of Oz Moment

So I remembered to check out “Big Brother” last night. Well… I remembered about 20 minutes after it started, but I don’t think I missed much. (Just the intros… sigh.) I got there in time for the challenge, which involved the contestants flinging themselves onto giant fake hot dogs and riding them through the air. Yes. And sadly, I cannot find a picture of this … Continue reading Oh Brother: BIG BROTHER’s Wizard of Oz Moment

Vampire Weekend

I gotta, say, you guys… I saw “Eclipse” last night, and I’m just not feeling the Twilight vampires anymore. I’m about to watch the Founder’s Day episode of “The Vampire Diaries,” just to cleanse my palate. Looking forward to hearing one of my favorite Damon lines from Season 1: “I’m a vampire. What’s your excuse?” (Yes, I have a lot of lines from Season 1 … Continue reading Vampire Weekend

Tasty TV Morsel: THE AMAZING RACE Host Phil Keoghan (Also, Last Season’s Mel & Mike)

In case you’ve never watched the Emmys, “The Amazing Race” always wins. Yet I don’t know many people who actually watch this show. But everybody SHOULD watch “The Amazing Race,” because it is… I mean, they race around the world. That is cool. Last season I started watching, thanks to Mike & Mel White. Mike White is one of my favorite actor/screenwriters (SCHOOL OF ROCK), … Continue reading Tasty TV Morsel: THE AMAZING RACE Host Phil Keoghan (Also, Last Season’s Mel & Mike)
