fat activity

ok so yeah, whilst talking to alliepants yesterday, she was telling me a story that started with, "if i didnt have a rice krispie treat in my hand at all times, i was entertaining homicidal thoughts". and then she told me that not only were they ooey and gooey goodness, but they were also butterscotch.


needless to say, i made her repeat whatever words she made after "....treats" because i TOTALLY went into a place with where the unicorns were made from butterscotch rice krispie treats...

which TOTALLY meant i had to make them, right? i mean, i AM a Number!

so, i am going to share the recipe. and i bet that they arent nearly as good as they would be if allie was in my veryownpersonal house making them for me.

here goes:

  • 3 tbls of buttah
  • 1 package of butterscotch morsels
  • 1 package of shmallows
  • 6 cups of rice krispies

on low heat, melt buttah. add morsels. add shmallows. mix till ooey. add krispies and mix.

pour (dump) into a greased 9x13 and smoosh till flat.

the hardest part of this is NOT burning your fingers trying to shovel it into your mouth instead of the pan.

oh sweet yummy goodness....

hallowed be thy name.

hi! hi! hi!

i'm back. did you miss me? i know you DID!!!!!

vacay was FABULOUS! got to see all my peeps and my family and my doggie. it was perfect. we had the best time.

the turkey was the best i'd ever had... and am SO upset that i don't even get any of the turkey sandwiches, but the shining light is that since E didn't go with me, we are going to have our very own lil thanksgiving. so i get to make the same turkey momma did. Y-U-M!

seeing all my peeps was great. the one main sentiment i heard was about how long my hair has gotten. i forgot that when i started hanging out with those freaks, i had just cut off 14 inches for Locks of Love so the fact that my hair is on it way back to "normal for me" was not a big deal. but they adored my tresses... and really, who can blame them?

we ate and laughed and drank big beers and ate some more and laughed some more. and then the HUGGING!!!! good lawd the hugging. i miss all you Peeps already. we will do it again soon.

and then my family! yay family! it was so nice to be able to see my family again in such a relatively short time. i could get used to those visitation rights. the mommie and daddie were both fantastic! and seeing my other one baby brother was nice too. i cant believe he is going to be 21 soon. am i really that old to have a "brother who can legally buy beer"? yeah, i didn't think so either. but he and i had fun. mostly on our trips to wal*mart. yes, we are those obnoxious people at wal*mart who run around like banshees! you never know, we could be coming to wal*mart near you!

so i ate and drank and laughed and taught my momma how to knit ( i mean REALLY???? how cute is that?!?!?!) we ate some more and had an all around awesome time.

the only bad part about the whole thing was my husband who was unable to stow himself in my luggage. i kept hoping that with each pair of socks i removed, he would spring out and surprise me... alas, no. but next time i head back, it will read, "we went back to SC" not just "i".

and as for thanksgiving, i am thankful for many things.
i am thankful for my wonderful friends and family.
i am thankful for second chances.
i am thankful for honesty.
and i am thankful for my new husband and the opportunity to be a new wife. the people we were before just didn't fit right. the new people we are now are a perfect fit.

i hope your holiday was and will be one filled with as much love and happiness as mine was.

gotta post fast before my computer crashes again.

i had a FABULOUS post on sunday and halfway through it, my computer froze. no saving. no rebooting. no NOTHING!!!!

i had to do a hard shut-down. after many expletives and staring at the screen, blinking, thinking, "really? did that really just happen? are you KIDDING me?!?!?! REALLY!?!?!?!"

so, needless to say, i havent posted much because i am afraid of the Phantom Computer Freezing Gnomes who reside in my CPU.

but a new comp is coming. after much threatening and cussing... a new one is in the works.

be patient. if i have to, you do too.

spiked limes

i went an got dinner for Sick Boy and myself last night... i went to a place where i know has great breakfast burritos and has the "Best Cherry Limes!" advertised. i figured, since i didn't stop for OJ, the lime juice would be good for the vitamin C, or at least ward off The Scurvy.

so, 2 cheeseburgers, 2 fries, and 1 giant Cherry Lime later, i was on my way back home.

we consumed our healthful and nutritious meal at 8:00 pm. by 8:45 pm we were both knocked out on the couch. i mean full-on snoring, mouth-breathing, drooling PASSED THE FUCK OUT!

i dont know what they put in that cherry lime, but it kicked our asses. so, we peeled ourselves off the couch and crawled into bed at a ridiculous 9:30 pm... and went nigh-night. i woke up around 11 thinking i had been out forever, and it was time to get up. nope, it was only 11. i was up again at 3 when E couldn't sleep anymore. and then finally got up at 6 am.

what are we? 97 year olds?
