  1. The episode of Rugrats where they go to the Reptar musical. 🎢He may be a dumb dinosaur, but I LOVE him!πŸŽΆπŸ˜‚
  2. 🎢So long Farewell Auf wiedersehen Good night I hate to go and leave this pretty sight...🎢 πŸŒ–
  3. I never did get that cake, or anything chocolate, so at a quarter to 4 in the morning I decided to make linguine and a wine/butter sauce. I still want my chocolate cake though.
  4. Let me tell you about my last 24 hours. The dog has been licking aggressively and I was afraid she'd developed a UTI or something post-surgery so I put her cone back on, at which point she started scooting. My husband came home and freaked out and tried to find a vet to see her. I got no sleep last night, and then this morning my husband had to call around four vets in our network before there was one who could see her this morning. And because my whole body hurt and I was terribly anxious and anticipating bad weather, we took an Uber there. Only to hear that we would have to leave her there until they could get a pee sample and test it. So we came home, my husband went to work exhausted, and I took a nightmare-fueled nap until I heard back that I could pick her up. This time I risked driving myself, and it did only rain a bit on the way home. So several hours, a few fights with my husband (anxiety and exhaustion does not bring out the best of us), and about $200 later, it turns out she has a mild fungus that might be irritating her privates. Also, the hospital did a "super job" taking out her stitches; they left a thread in her tummy and that could've been what was driving her crazy as well! So we have medicated wipes and spray to keep her clean, and she has to wear the cone of shame until Friday. I hope this is the last of it. So since then, I've calmed down. I've had 2.5 bowls of linguine to keep myself sane and physically functional in all this time. Apparently my insides hurt when I'm having insomnia now. Or maybe I was dehydrated. Anyway, I feel mildly better and hopefully I'll sleep tonight.
  5. I just realized this made no sense. He used scissors, no knife.
  6. So I really, really didn't want to work out but I found a 15 minute dance cardio workout on Youtube, and it was the perfect amount of time! I could probably go again after a little rest.
  7. Here's another one: a Florida man used a knife to cut off the genitals of his wife's lover using scissors.
  8. 8 injured in lightning strike at Clearwater Beach in Florida One of the victims, a male in his 40s, was struck directly and suffered cardiac arrest, the city of Clearwater said in a statement. July 21, 2019, 4:19 PM EDT By Janelle Griffith Eight people were injured when lightning struck Clearwater Beach on Sunday afternoon. One of the victims, a male in his 40s, was struck directly and suffered cardiac arrest, the city of Clearwater said in a statement. He is currently in critical condition. Clearwater is in Pinellas County, Florida, northwest of Tampa and St. Petersburg. Five of the eight were taken to area hospitals. Three others refused treatment. All of those affected were in the beach area at the time of the strike, the city said. The lightning struck at about 12:40 p.m., approximately ten minutes after beach lifeguards left their towers due to bad weather, according to the city. Clearwater Fire and Rescue said, as a reminder, "When you hear the roar, go indoor." (I was just thinking today about how one of my husband's friends was once struck by lightning. Tampa Bay is the lightning capital of the USA.)
  9. I was going for a hot cocoa, but I'm all out so I settled for Earl Grey with some creamer, a stevia packet, and the last of the whipped cream on top.
  10. I still want chocolate cake! My husband is at a concert right now, and they always go to a convenience store or Walmart afterword and I'm so having him buy me chocolate cake because I can't fight it anymore. F it, I'll start anew with my healthy objectives in August.
  11. So the "severe thunderstorm" never showed up last night, just gentle rain. And there's still a lot of rumbling distant thunder today and it's really starting to get on my nerves. Pee or get off the pot, thunder!
  12. Yup they changed the name and now it sounds like a brand of maxi pads or something. πŸ˜‚ I was asleep when that was on. I've never managed to watch that whole movie somehow. Now The Lion King is on. πŸ™‚
  13. @AloneGuy That is so cool that you went to culinary school. Sometimes I wish I had discovered my love for baking earlier so I could have studied to be a pastry chef.
  14. I rely on the internet. That way, you can read all the reviews where people say how they altered the recipe. I have them saved to my Pinterest account too, available wherever I am. The "all recipes" site is the one I use the most. Pinterest itself also has a ton of food hacks and easy recipes.
  15. Just having fun playing around in the kitchen the last two days. I had frozen shrimp and frozen okra, so I thought why not put them together? I half-followed a recipe for Creole-style shrimp and okra in tomato sauce. I made the sauce with tomato paste and chicken broth instead of fresh tomatoes and wine like the recipe said. I also didn't have peppers and onions, or "Creole seasoning" so I mixed up my own seasoning with salt, pepper, thyme, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika...I think it came out pretty good. I served it over rice. And today I had these small chicken breasts defrosting in the fridge so into the crockpot they go. I'm sick of bbq sauce so I used the teriyaki sauce/marinade I had leftover in the fridge plus some of the canned crushed pineapple. I would add powdered ginger but I don't have any.
  16. Slept like 75% of the day. When it rains with me, it really frickin' pours.
  17. We've had rumbling thunder for the last hour or so. There's a severe thunderstorm warning, and I wish it would just happen and be over with already.
  18. You know, writing that down made me realize I often have dreams that take place in bathrooms or rather public lavatories which is weird, huh? I used to not be able to pee in public bathrooms so I guess I still have a lot of anxiety attached to the place.
  19. Lots of dreams because I'm going through a phase where I can't stay awake now. The one I remember, the part I remember, is that I was trying to rush and get ready to go to a baseball game with some friends and everyone else was doing everything in their capability to slow me down. Including barging into the bathroom with me where I was shaving, trying to barge in when I locked the door, throwing toilet water at me through the supposedly closed door, trying to physically fight me...it was insane! I think I woke up when things escalated to the point of horror.
  20. Just a banana, and I can't even finish that. Good because I've been eating all kinds of junk food in my insomniac state this week.
