We need two apiece.
not my score, bitchez.]
Spend some time testing your sense of color at the Munsell Hue Test. I scored an 11 (lower scores are better). I don't know if that's average, or what. I tried to get a better score, but it got worse every time I did it. What did you get?
UPDATE: Thanks to the commenters, I had to go back and spend 10 minutes trying to get a better score. I got to a 4 immediately when I started using my laptop (instead of the desktop at work), and then I finally got them all right. A 4 means that you're only off by one square, Sara.
It was a rainy day today, so I stayed inside and caught up on some reading, alphabetized my spice rack, etc. Oh wait, no: I started another blog. I have a minor obsession with packaging; hence pkg.tumblr.com. Amount of my day now spent on the internet = 93.7%.
As reported by In Style magazine:
Julianne Moore: HuffPo (GROAN)
Angie Harmon: Newsbusters (Double GROAN -- oh Angie, you're so pretty...)
Sharon Stone: Webkinz (that I can believe)
Camilla Belle: Food Network (pants on fire)
Tom Ford: "Youporn.com has the best free porn around. It's true! Is that a bad thing to say? If I'm tired of porn and want to shop for a new lamp, 1stdibs.com is good."
Do we have any cabinet positions still open? I love Tom Ford.
God, this is horrifying.
I wonder if she's as embarrassed as I am.
Okay, this hurts less than childbirth, but only because it doesn't last as long.
What is she saying? I wish I spoke Vietnamese.
I think I outweigh the entire staff combined.
Dude, where is she going?
They need a picture on this ceiling.
They would probably put up a picture of Hannah Montana.
I will not think about Miley Cyrus. I will not think about Miley Cyrus.
Hey, I bet my nails are dry.
I wonder if the liquor store next door sells ice.
Next time I'm paying more for a place with numbing cream.
Which is worse -- being her or being me?
At times like this it's good to have some poetry memorized.
'Twas brillig and the ... the ...
HOW BIG IS MY VAGINA? She could have mowed the back 40 by now.
God, how come nobody told me this shit was growing halfway down my leg?
Did I water the clematis last night?
Next time: vodka first.
Next time: Vicodin first.
Let's talk about your hat.
I appreciate your thriftiness in purchasing a Simplicity pattern and making both a sweatshirt AND a hat out of that fleecy material that's always on sale. But let's be honest -- you've been phoning it in for years with your albums, harvesting the money that baby boomers who remember your better days are willing to spend in order to feel 25 again. [Your pal Jimmy Buffet was a real prince to let you in on his business model.] And I know Carly didn't bleed you dry with alimony demands, either. So maybe next time you could pony up for a real hat. You'll feel better when you look better -- trust me.
I made this for Mother's Day, and again for a coworker's birthday today. The recipe I put together from a few different sources, including Baked: New Frontiers in Baking (I love that book).
Peanut Butter Pie
30 chocolate wafer cookies, finely crushed (appx. 6 oz.)
1 T sugar
6 T butter, melted
Mix ingredients in a bowl. Press mixture into pie plate and refrigerate while making pie filling.
1 ½ c heavy cream
8 oz. cream cheese
1 c smooth peanut butter
2 T vanilla extract
¾ c dark brown sugar (firmly packed)
Whip the cream and set aside. Put remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat until combined and smooth. Fold whipped cream into peanut butter mixture by thirds, and pour mixture into prepared crust.
½ c heavy cream
½ c semisweet chocolate chips
¼ c chopped peanuts
Heat cream on low heat on stovetop until bubbly. Add chocolate and stir continuously until mixture is glossy and smooth. Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes, then pour on top of prepared pie. Sprinkle peanuts over top of chocolate.
Freeze pie at least four hours; remove from freezer 10 minutes before serving.
Hello, fellow babies. I am going to put my bottle of Vicodin down long enough for this one post. Amazon is running a scented-glossy-magazine subscription special that might be worth your while. Right now you can get:
One year of Sunset (12 issues) for $11.
Two years of House Beautiful (yep, 24 issues) for $10.
One year of Country Living (12 issues) for 5 whole dollars. [Yeah, I know: Country Living? But they have a new editor, and they have been bringing it lately.]
One year of Penthouse Letters (1-year) for less than $20. Hey, D, do they send you a free copy when your letter is published?
Hell, there are a bunch of them at end-of-times-for-print-media prices. And the deals are valid for renewals as well as new purchases.
I ordered about 10 of these for myself as a get well present. It's true, babies: I finally got those butt implants. Coming soon to a rap video near you.
