Madeleines



Today is flavoured madeleines. I chose two recipes and went with them: nutella madeleines and raspberry madeleines. From there I also made apricot madeleines. OM NOM NOM.

The madeleines, blah blah French people, blah blah Proust, blah blah flashbacks. Usually lemon infused, these are the same seashell shape with all the love of different flavours. Others have tried to make savoury madeleines, so I might try them very soon. Sun dried tomato, anyone?

Price: $10/dozen
Available: 2 dozen asst, 1 dozen apricot, 2 dozen nutella

Order more than one dozen and get a dollar off per additional dozens!

ALSO AVAILABLE: 4 dozen fruit failies--aesthetically displeasing yet tasty love--5/dozen

her: I like waffles
me: Yeah?
her: I like all kinds of foods!
me: Do you like worms?
her: Ewwwwww.
me: I bet you’d eat worms.
her: No.
me: I bet you’d eat gummi worms.
her: We should get some.
me: I dunno. They’re bad for your teeth. Then they’d fall out, and when I took you to the dentist he’d say, "where are all her teeth?" and I’d say, "I am sorry. There were gummi worms." and he’d say, "why did you let her eat those?" and I’d say, "obviously, you have never been a parent."
her: I’m coloring.


me: (sings the waffle song)
her: I said I like waffles.
me: Sorry, I have a song stuck in my head and I can’t get it out.
her: I’ll get it out for you.
me: Yeah? How would you do that?
her: I’ll get a knife.

ME: Okay, count the pairs.
HER: Eight.
ME: And how many do I have?
HER: Eight.
ME: What do we call it when both of us have the same number of pairs?
HER: A bowtie.
ME: Close enough.

It's no secret that I'm a total unfaithful music whore. I never buy albums anymore. I find things on youtube and pandora and then I buy them. Sometiems, like with K'naan, I do become a fan of all their stuff. But until I hear more of their shit, I stay to the few songs I have.

Here's what's on replay on my iPod. )

I read a bit in 2010, and I got one of those memes, but I just didn't feel like doing it until now. So here:

Wot I read in 2010. )

God I feel like I got nothing last year.

[livejournal.com profile] ophymirage sent me a link to this awesome swing/hip-hop routine, and I had to share.

THIS IS WHAT I DO. IMAGINE ME, DRUNK AT 4 AM, DOING THIS PARTNERLESS TO "BEDROCK":

Okay, so I'm supposed to be doing Nano, and I SWEAR I WILL MAKE IT UP (aka Famous Last Words, copywrite the universe and MCR) but failing that, I do have evidence what I have been doing the last two days (four days, whatever).

I am virtually incapable of even typing a journal report. For srs. )

That'll do, pig. That'll do.

[livejournal.com profile] emquilxy sends me all kinds of awesome shit in snailmail, and this article on Japanese knives was no exception. Better than the article, though, which features Masaharu Morimoto talking about knives and showing off his mad skills, is the set of pictures below, and my cousin's commentary on a picture of him slicing a daikon radish in a very specialised way:

HOLY FIRKING SHIT. )

The only thing that tops this is the time she sent me a review of Villas's book, Pig, and drew an arrow to the cover and wrote, "I KNOW THAT." If you're a True Blood fan, it will take a minute but say it in your head in your best drunk Andy Bellefleur voice.

I wanna write this up, but I have so much to do that I really cannot spare the time, so here's a half-assed entry.

I HAD SEX WITH GARETH DAVID LLOYD ON A SINK AT DRAGON*CON AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS LOUSY MANICURE:



Yes, this sums up my whole D*C experience nicely. )

That was my big fat D*C exp. Seriously, few panels, lots of booze, tonnes of food, great people, EXCELLENT CONVERSATIONS, and a renewed sense of writing. I WILL WRITE THAT FPREG. IT WILL BE AWESOME.

OH AND I THINK I MIGHT HAVE A SEASON TO AIR THIS FALL.

Oh, and Jack and Ianto's post-it D*C adventure )

BUT FOR NOW, my dad is out of surgery, and I'm waiting to hear how he is, and I have plans to make biscotti with cabernet cocoa powder, and possibly some cupcakes.

I dreamt about biscotti last night.

I made a list of shit to do divided by pages: on page per category, house, work, online, general, errands, etc. IT'S NINE PAGES LONG.

See ya'll on the flip side.

EDIT: I bought their Netherworld Blend and the Reanimator Blend. The latter is great. Haven't tasted the firmer. Go there and browse the teas and coffees.
