I have a confession to make. I made these cookies while the Hubster was away. That means no sharing, and no leftovers going into his fellow Coasties with him. That means just me and these cookies. Alone. For a whole week. They had some strange power over me. I was constantly thinking of them at […]...

I currently live in a foreign country. Well, foreign to my U.S. readers…and anyone outside of the Netherlands…you know what I mean. Anyway, I live here in the Netherlands, but I don’t speak Dutch. Maybe I speak a little. Very, very little. Okay, okay, hardly any at all, but it’s not like I’m not trying. It’s […]...

I’m pretty sure my elevator is out to get me. I have a theory that it senses my dislike of elevators in general and enjoys toying with me. Elevators are scary, y’all. There’s the ever-present risk of plummeting to the bottom of the shaft screaming your lungs out, the terrifying prospect of stepping in, only […]...

My friend Tina and I have both been dieting lately. It sucks. I don’t even care who you are. Being on a diet is really stupid. Even when it’s working, and you’re seeing results, and you’re halfway to your goal…it still sucks and is stupid. Also, people are so judgy about dieting. Everybody has an […]...

I went to the dentist yesterday. I had a bunch of stupid shots and I got a wisdom tooth extracted. There was nothing fun about it, and I’m being a big, spoiled baby today, because I can. I never whine, I’m never a brat when I’m sick, and I never make anyone take care of […]...

Does anybody else feel like March is the boringest month ever? I mean, unless your birthday is in March. Then, you probably like it. Okay, yes, hubs and I just celebrated our anniversary, and St. pat’s is this Sunday, so that’s fun, but that’s all I’ve got. Seriously, March, you are boring. I’m stuck in […]...

Happy World Nutella Day! Seriously, whoever decided to make this day happen is pretty much the smartest person who ever lived. To celebrate, I made soft pretzels. That I filled with Nutella. And topped with butter and cinnamon-sugar. Then I ate too many, woke up, and had the rest for breakfast. I love my job....

So, I didn’t watch the Super Bowl yesterday. In fact, I didn’t even know it was Super Bowl Sunday until right around lunchtime, when I saw something mentioned on Facebook. I’m sure it’s no great surprise that I’m not into sports. I mean, I dunno…I grew up watching football, cheering on the Colts. Basketball was […]...
