During the last snowstorm... [11 Mar 2009|07:39pm]
I went to Trader Joe's on the way home. They were so happy to see a customer, that they gave me these flowers

New York's Calorie Law Scams. [11 Mar 2009|02:23pm]
This news story got me thinking: http://wcbstv.com/seenat11/nyc.calorie.counts.2.954672.html

Thinking about the Buffalo Chicken Salad at Skyline, which allegedly only has 150 calories. Lately, I've been eating them so often (about 3 times a week) because they are so filling. It doesn't require dressing because there is so much Frank's Red Hot on it. But have you ever had one? There is NO WAY there is only 150 calories, especially with all of the cheese.

Any other misleading caloric contents that you're wary of? I'd love to know.

Diet reality blows [01 Jan 2009|03:06am]
but fitday.com makes it a little easier. Warning: if you are in any way an obsessive person, do not use fitday.com as a weight loss tool. It will become your new facebook. You will weigh yourself 3x a day so that you can watch your weight graph against your goal graph move up or down (hopefully down). You will calculation the calorie totals of food combinations until your calculator wiki tells you that it is giving up and you should go play facebook scrabble like a normal person. You will try to balance a normal weight loss schedule with your weight loss goal date and try to manipulate it to lose the most about of weight in the shortest amount of time. It is bad.

Later, the South Beach Diet Fiber and Protein Flavor water is calling me. Ugh.

Ok, there they are. [21 Dec 2008|12:59pm]
So cute, huh? And look at that sweet-ass fish tank! I keep wanting to get some new fish soon, but I am afraid my car will break down or the heat will go out and it will be like that episode of Seinfeld where Elaine has a bag of fish and can't find her car in a parking garage.

P.s. I accidentally ruined Ryan's gift last night. I bought it on Ebay and the person I bought it from still hadn't shipped it. I accidentally said out loud, "I'm gonna email that guy and find out where your belt buckle is."

Cheddar Dill Bread [15 Nov 2008|10:31am]
Ok, so I went ahead and made the cheddar dill bread. The cheddar got obliterated into a million little bits by the bread machine blade, so you can't really taste it, and I didn't add enough dill to give it a very dilly flavor. However, this time I used fresh enough yeast to make the bread rise all the way to the top of the pan. It is fantastic.

BREAD MACHINE!! [14 Nov 2008|10:04pm]
Ryan's brother gave me a bread machine the last weekend we were in Louisville to visit him. My first attempt at using it was to make a simple honey white bread. The yeast I had in the pantry was expired, so the loaf didn't rise, but tasted kinda like soda bread when it baked into it's tough little ball. Here is a picture.

Does anyone else have a bread machine with any good recipes? This evening I am going to attempt a cheddar dill loaf.

Day 4 [14 Nov 2008|07:49am]
No changes. Snake Oil, for real.

or is it?

I feel like my feet have more spring and bounce to them at work. After working 4 eight hour shifts in a row, on my feet, I don't feel like cutting them off at the end of the day because that would feel better than having them attached to my legs. I don't have that agonizing first step in the morning when I wake up. I have a feeling that this is due to the cooling effect of the wood oil vinegar and the lavender in the ingredients. If this is true, then, possibly, I could make my own.
Much of the sameCollapse )

Kinoki Foot Pad Experiment - Days 2 & 3 [13 Nov 2008|09:37am]
No one as yet has made any comments about my incredibly gross endeavors. Is this because you are too grossed out? What? C'mon!
Here is day 2 & 3 of the experiment. The foot pads have not gotten any lighter. They smell good, though, kinda like lavender, even though everyone else said that they smelled absolutely foul.
I am certain now that it is just the moisture from your feet that makes the clay harden and discolor. That's all.
MmmmCollapse )

Kinoki Foot Pad Experiment - Day 1 [11 Nov 2008|06:01pm]
EwCollapse )

The powdery clay inside turned rock hard and I think that the gross color comes from the clay becoming damp . I don't feel clean or anything, but I felt a slight tugging at the bottom of my foot while the band-aid thingy was on it. We'll see about tomorrow.

the kinoki foot pad experiment 2008! [10 Nov 2008|11:27pm]
Ok, Ryan and I have been curious about Kinoki foot pads for a long time. Of course, they must be snake oil. What if they really do lighten after time though? We shall see. Here is the kit and everything it came with.
title or description
none of the pads or stickers are not labeled, so there won't be any less powdered clay in each packet to make them lighter every night. The packets are filled with a powdery clay and the stickers are like big band-aids. You peel a packet out of a foil pouch and stick it on one of the stickers, then place that on the bottom of your foot. you do it on every other foot each night until they are completely lightened. we'll see.

we had every intention of carving these. but that did not happen. instead, we roasted them over a fire pit. they did not look appetizing after that, like i thought they would, and we would eat them and it would taste like pie. not so much. they blistered and burned and looked like old people.

Dear Bells Brewing Co., [28 Aug 2008|12:09pm]
Look at what your mini-keg of Oberon produced for us. Massive amounts of settlement that tasted like a mixture of clay-silt and curdled milk. This is not what we expect from your fine products as your loyal customers. To make up for it, we will except two more mini-kegs of Oberon or Two-Hearted Ale, or jobs with your company. Thank You.

Amazing praying mantis [27 Aug 2008|10:27am]
This guy is amazing! He is has already molted once, and is about to molted again. He's going to be a super huge praying mantis from a bad movie about super huge praying mantises that take over NYC. Oh, wait, did that movie already come out?

Also, Katie J., consider this an official nudge to post some pictures of your damned apartment. I really want to see if that whole, "mystery wall and doorway" business was ever cleared up.

Glier's Goetta Fest, 2008. Newport, Kentucky [24 Aug 2008|12:53pm]
For those of you who don't know, goetta is a food-stuff that is made of boiled pork, beef and steel-cut oats, that is formed into a loaf or a tube, then fried like sausage. It was invented during the depression and along with Cincinnati style chili, is a staple in the refrigerators along the Ohio river.

Glier's, the number one manufacturer of goetta and hosts a couple festivals in the summer to celebrate our beloved offal hash.
