Putting the Ab[by] into Absentee

Has it really been months since I posted? The date-stamp on my last blogpost seems to show February, but for the LIFE of me, it doesn’t feel like it’s been that long. What have I been doing these past few months? It is April, for Pete’s sake. I shall have to write for real sometime in theContinue reading “Putting the Ab[by] into Absentee”

Heart-y Chicken Soup

Last week, in honor of Valentine’s Day, I decided that warm chicken soup was just what I needed to fend off the grumpiness-inducinge snowstorm that was de-railing my evening plans. AND, I decided to put a heart-shaped spin on it, something I’ve done once before! Ingredients: 1 rotisserie chicken 1 yellow onion, diced celery, washed andContinue reading “Heart-y Chicken Soup”

Unpopular Opinion: Valentine’s Day is Awesome.

I love Valentine’s Day. I don’t love conflict. There are some opinions that I keep to myself in order to avoid conflict. This is not one of them. If you don’t love Valentine’s Day, I am writing this to you, and you are wrong. via “But it’s so commercial.” One common theme in the Hate-On-Love-DayContinue reading “Unpopular Opinion: Valentine’s Day is Awesome.”

Golden Nuggets From The Internet

I have thus compiled my very first master-post of things I found on the internet that I didn’t even know I wanted, but are absolute perfection. BritishContinue reading “Golden Nuggets From The Internet”

That Awkward Phone Moment…

The phone rings and your caller i.d. flashes the name of a dear one you’ve been particularly bad at keeping in touch with over the past year or so. You stare at the screen and in the course of a few seconds, you must decide whether to answer or not. One one hand, OF COURSE youContinue reading “That Awkward Phone Moment…”

Supernaturally Good

If you, like me, tuned in to watch the 200th episode of Supernatural last night, well. You know. You know that there are no words to describe what ridiculous rip-roaring supernaturally high school musicalish CHUCK-ness that we witnessed. If you didn’t watch it (or you did and understood nothing) . . . well I’m sorry. BUTContinue reading “Supernaturally Good”

Apple Cakey Goodness

This week, I made a cake. A cake that takes the cake, if you know what I mean. I found myself in possession of some very disappointing Red Delicious Apples (as all Red Delicious Apples tend to be) that were starting to grow even less appetizing over time. Thus, I went to find my AppleContinue reading “Apple Cakey Goodness”

Je Suis . . . Super Sucrée!!!

Every year for Halloween, I dress up. I think teachers who don’t dress up without a good reason are kind of a drag, to be honest. But I’m also a big nerd who loves to stay creatively on/near the topic of my content-matter as much as possible. SO, typically, I try to pick a costumeContinue reading “Je Suis . . . Super Sucrée!!!”
