Off the Wagon

Well, I'm back everyone. 

Boyfriend is obsessed with the Harry Potter and the Sacred Text podcast. He recommends you all listen. 

Yeah, after a week of eating junk on vacation, I'm having a real hard time getting back on the wagon. Just some minor sweet treat hallucinations. NBD.

Throwback Post: Red

I'm coming back from vacation today. Here's a throwback post that i'm guessing will more than likely be appropriate. Whoopsies!


I tried, you guys! I really did. 

I burned the back of my legs badly. Sitting is a problem.

It takes a minute to register...

And I can't even complain to Boyfriend because this happened the last time I got burned

(But let's be honest, that didn't really stop me.)

See? A silver lining! Instead he can spray solarcaine all over me. 
 Anyone else get burned this weekend? Fess up!

Polling Polling Polls

Two weeks ago:

polling from fivethirtyeight, according to memory. 



I know the polls won't stay like this forever, but good god they're enjoyable right now.

The Giant Zucchini

Farmer Boyfriend has a small vegetable garden in his backyard. 

oh hush.

Anyway, he brought me a present this weekend. 

Seriously, I should have taken a good photo of it. It was about the size of my cat. Probably 8 pounds. No joke. 

So I googled recipes on Saturday to figure out what to do with it. 

I decided on a zucchini egg bake. You shred the zucchini in a food processor, fry it a little on the stovetop, and bake with eggs and cheese. 

So on Sunday morning, I began my work. 

But do you know how long it takes to shred and fry that much zucchini? I had to do it in batches. Many, many batches. 

(I should note that the kitchen is the hottest room in my apartment in the summer, even without turning both the stovetop and oven on.) I don't want to say I was "hysterical" by the fourth batch, but things weren't looking great. 

Finally, after many hours of cooking and sweating and washing dishes, the zucchini bake was done. 

You guys can probably see this coming, can't you?

Yep. Goddamnit, that's what I get for trying.
