Two things I have recently become obsessed with:
- Ever-so-lightly-pink lip glosses
- South Park: The Stick of Truth
The polar opposite nature of these two things are basically me in a nutshell.
I love my crass humour and my video games, but will still occasionally have to pause and coo at the shiny girly things.
I like to think of these brownies as an unapologetically disgusting yet hilarious sense of humour topped with an extra sparkly hit of Dolly gloss. Like me!
Let me explain.
Aaaand… I’m back!
It’s been a crazy month, and my extreme level of busy isn’t over yet, but I’ve hit a nice little lull.
Work has finally calmed down (for a short amount of time anyway) aaaand…
I’M IN MY NEW HOUSE!
Apologies, I am in full panic mode.
I really should calm down, nothing is actually going wrong with my new house or my current house, but it’s all happening in less than a week and… omg is anyone else seeing stars?
I think my right leg just went numb.
A few years ago, in an effort to be a little healthier, I lost 30 pounds over the span of a year. I knew that I would never be able to stop eating sugary deliciousness, so I went the calorie counting route as opposed to the “eating healthy foods” route. It worked out for me, and I’ve kept most of the weight off since.
Most of it.
I tend to occasionally bounce around 5-6 pounds heavier than my lightest from time to time.
It’s actually a relatively accurate measure of my current life stress level.
I did not intentionally go on a bourbon kick… but I seem to have gone on a bourbon kick.
In my previous post there was the bourbon in the whiskey marshmallow, caramel and bacon bark, and now there’s these squares.
Squares that are essentially blondies that are strongly bourbon flavoured.
And I claim to not even like alcohol.
I didn’t understand rhubarb for a long time.
I avoided it. I heard it was bitter and vile and that its leaves were… poisonous?
Jeepers, anyone in their right mind would avoid it.
I grew up with a big green can of Milo in my kitchen cupboard. Is that stuff available here or is that a Canadian/European thing? All I know is that my local grocery store doesn’t sell it so I have to use Ovaltine instead.
Well in case it’s a Canadian childhood thing, Milo is a lot like Ovaltine, AKA chocolate malt mix, best enjoyed dissolved in a mug of hot milk.
Or, added to cookie bar dough.
