Friends, I usually can’t tolerate Giada, but this pasta with butternut squash and goat cheese recipe was unreal. I should have taken pics last night, but the beisbol was too exciting. I hope leftover pics at lunchtime don’t look too ugly.
I urge you not to leave out steps, because they’re all worth it. Especially roasting the walnuts, which I tossed immediately after taking them out of the oven with a little olive oil and salt. I also made some real-deal bacon to crumble on top, which admittedly was over the top and highly unnecessary.
PSA: make you one of these immediately.
I’m here to help.
I just get a quarterly statement. It doesn’t list individuals :)
Once I pondered the question, I realized it would be a ridiculous security problem if they did. :) Then I imagined hordes of angry writers going door to door, going, “WHY DIDN’T YOU REVIEW MY BOOK. DIDN’T YOU LIKE IT. WHY OR WHY NOT.”
Because, for real, I wouldn’t do that but I’d fantasize about it. I get briefly but highly annoyed when I publish something in my limited, non-public professional circle and don’t get enough reviews and feedback (read: praise).
I am a good girlfriend. A few weeks ago, Guy was a little sad that no one had bought his first book in awhile. So I ordered it.
Poop, I hope Amazon doesn’t tell writers, like, the names of who buys their books. I’d rather he just think how nice it is that someone had a burning curiosity about the historiography of that particular time and geographic place.
You are watching
too many a lot of scary and/or spoopy procedurals if, during every commercial, you find yourself waiting for some moment of doom that never arrives.
Trashbag commercial does not end with an intruder killing everyone in the kitchen. Car dealership Ben Franklin is clothed, does not mention the Bible and/or apocryphal texts, and makes no references to sex. Lush lawns are mown, and weeds are killed, absent headless persons, be they horsemen or just regular dead people.
Behold, all: the typical self-described Laid-Back Man.
dye, if no one wants?
Wait till you see the pic; it would still be a hard to find an occasion for dress. In another color, I can see it as a lovely bridesmaid dress. Dyed black, with a little tiara, very Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Hmmm, wait a sec. Dyed black, and getting it altered to knee length, it could be a cocktail LBD.
My dear ladyoflate, thank you for making me think of possibilities! What I will do if I don’t have a marrying/committing taker after pics and measurements (because it’s cut awkwardly - I want to actually measure it for people) are posted, I will give that a go!
absolutelyablative said: What is this stylish surprise thing I keep hearing about? And do I want it?
Every once in awhile, ModCloth does a $10 or $15 thing where they dump excess inventory. You pay $10 for a Dress, Shoes, or Apparel, in your size, plus shipping, and you don’t know what it is till it shows up. Shoes always seems to go first.
This is my third one, and thus far I am 1 for 3. I keep meaning to find a home for another dress I got this way that just does not suit my body at all. Too tight in my ass, too loose in my waist, but very lovely and originally about $150.
So, think about it! The notification of it being a stylish surprise day seems to come quicker via the app than on fb, fyi.
not kidding when I say this dress is for a tall person, or will need to be shortened. Holding it up, it stretches from my bare feet to over the top of my head.
Haha, was just thinking, oh shit, need to hide that in the closet until I find a taker, don’t want it hanging on my dress rack by the laundry where Guy can see it, lest he think anything untoward. But, fuck him; he made a crack the other day, after admiring my earrings and me expressing a preference for rough diamonds over cut ones, about “having to return the ring.” At which I went green. And he laughed.
Watching him be the one to get seasick over maahhwage for a change will amuse me.
