I’m always petrified that something is on my face or in my teeth.
Chipped nail polish bothers me to no.end.
I really wish I could be a good beer drinker. By “good” I mean, a beer drinker at all. Sadly, anything other than fancy shmancy microbrews gets the stuffy nose from me. I really can’t hang with the cheap beers. Sorry I’m a party pooper.
Also, I wish I could be a good wine drinker. Or hell, a good drinker at all. I only order Midori Sours and refuse to order anything else in fear it’ll taste like alcohol. A few weeks ago, Jessie and I went to a place for lunch that’s known for their sangria. I ordered a small “taster” cup and was disappointed that it “tastes too much like wine.” Ugh, on second thought, I just need a juice box.
Yesterday, a coworker asked me what kind of music I liked to listen to and what my favorite band was. I was ashamed to admit that truthfully, I’m not a big music fan. Well–lemme rephrase that. I like music, I just only like about 4 songs at a time. “Shuffle” on my iPhone consists of me vetoing EVERY.SINGLE.SONG until I get to the four I like. Seriously. So I just told him I liked the eclectic 80s band Oingo Boingo (they really are my favorite) and called it a day.
Did you hear Tom and Katie broke up? I don’t care either, but it bears mentioning I suppose. Maybe now Katie can stop dressing in a style I can only describe as “homeless person chic” and stop eating placenta. Also, maybe now Tom can stop being the creepiest person alive aside from Nicolas Cage, Dennis Quaid and John Travolta. Yeah, they all oog me out like nothing else does (okay, maybe eating your own placenta oogs me out just as much but still).
I just bought a chiffon blouse with skulls all over it, a giraffe head ring and leggings with nebulas and galaxies on them. I don’t know when I’m supposed to start buying “adult” clothes that scream “professional” and “sophisticated” but I’m guessing at this rate I’ll forever look like I’m in costume.
^^ it’s like when you see young girls wearing really professional-looking clothes and you’re like, “girl, you’re only eighteen! Why are you wearing slacks and fancy tops and modest-looking, not-even-cute flats? You should be wearing something young and cute.” But I’m sure that girl is probably looking at me and wondering why that chick is wearing a galaxy on her crouch. Touche, girl, touche.
I’m having an apparent cookie dough moment lately. Call me crazy but cookie dough is badass. I will stop at nothing to stuff these little egg-free balls of heaven into virtually everything & anything.
Mmmmkay, so lemme preface this by saying I was originally not keen on the idea of putting cookie dough into cinnamon rolls. I mean, why mess with a good thing like an ooey gooey cinnamon roll? It’s nearly perfect on its own in its rotund, cinnamon-y glory. Adding cookie dough to it seemed like…overkill.
But I decided to give it a whirl and only stuff half of my cinnamon roll batch just in case my prior assumptions were correct. I hesitantly wrapped the cookie dough into each cinnamon roll center, baked them, and pulled them out of the oven all gooey and golden and ready to be eaten.
One bite of the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cinnamon Rolls and I was convinced: a good thing can be improved upon, and you should definitely give it a try anyways. The cookie dough isn’t terribly noticeable, actually–rather, it adds an additional gooeiness to the roll and is a fun surprise. Plus chocolate + cinnamon is TO.DIE.FOR so that did it for me.
Forrealsies, will you please give this a try? I mean, someone else needs to be as cookie dough crazy-adventurous as me. Just be crazy with me and I promise you don’t need to wear galaxy leggings or anything too insane.
