The Seven Deadly Food Sins

Hey, y’all!!! Hola, welcome (do we know the word for that? bienvenidos I knew we did… right… that. I apologize for spelling errors), relax, pull up a chair.Tie a napkin round your neck, cherie (I think that’s how you spell it at least it is).

Anyway, we didn’t intend to debate Spanish or to quote Beauty and The Beast. We’ve most all heard of the seven deadly sins, right? Well, I think most of us have also heard of “sinful foods” so we’re going to take a little liberty to combine the two lists.

Sit back enjoy (and feel all kinds of guilt) thinking about The Seven Deadly Food Sins.

Number One: Chocolate covered Ritz crackers. I haven’t seen them sold in a while but that may be because people were getting addicted and staying on cloud nine too much because of them.

Number Two: Pasta. All kinds of pasta. Specifically, chicken alfredo(YES!!!). But you cannot possibly go wrong with a starch and cheese. When in doubt, pasta.

Number Three: Cake balls. Whether on a stick to form a cake pop or just covered in chocolate on their own, you can’t go wrong (I think I just said that about pasta, but both might be true, I guess 😉 yes but since I’m having to cover the desserts, I can use it once, too) with the delicious treats. ❤

Number Four: Cheese…on/in anything. A dish automatically becomes more delicious and more sinful by adding cheese(normal dishes anything!!!). Cheese can turn broccoli into something terribly unhealthy and amazing. It adds to the savoriness of potatoes. Cheese–make good choices.

Number Five: Hot now Krispy Kreme doughnuts. The original glazed kind, no doubt. They are so fresh and warm and the bread is light and soft while the icing is crumbly and crisp. They aren’t fair when you need to stress self-control. It’s awful. They’re too good.

Number Six: French fries, a food often referred to as “the new cigarette” (I didn’t know that, cool, but YESSSS, french fries) due to their terrible qualities but addictive nature. They are the perfect to side to practically anything. (Bonus: Onion rings, the french fry’s smelly cousin. Less so but they aren’t too bad.)

Number Seven: Now, the food that inspired this whole list and is probably the one we agree about completely and totally even to the degree which it should be illegal: Burger King’s Red Velvet Oreo Milkshake. If you even think you begin to like red velvet stuff or Oreos, or even ice cream, you’ve got to try it. If you live near a Burger King, that is. If not, I’m so sorry, get a cousin or a stranger to ship you one in a freezer box to try.

If this post has not inspired you to raid the fridge, then we have failed. If it’s inspired you to find your own Seven or to create one that would make our list, then we have not failed. So… Do that.

Keep your toes on the typewriter and your tongue in the canning jars (or just a Mason jar). 🙂 😉 😀 😛

Eat to live because that’s important, but eat as you wish to live. Eat well, which includes eating things that are enjoyable. Oh, and drive safely.

Disease and Toe Helmets

Good evening. I am sick and have no clue what is going. (Okay, I’m not sick, but I’m kind of sick.)

And I’m trying to figure out what all you can do with a ten minute deadline. I found out that taking a shower can go in that category, sometimes. (8/10 on my end.) Getting a post at least written before midnight is also one of those that we’re going to attempt. (Hopefully.)

Fun fact: Benadryl can actually make you hyper. If you’ve not been able to breathe the entire 24 hours previous, especially. Or if you’re me and just have weird reverse reactions. (True story, my mother used to give me non-drowsy medicine and it’d knock me out.) (No comment.)

Most of my day has been centered around decorations and furniture and how things look. (Read as: my family looked at things and I moved pictures around our house and we went to a formal event.) So my artist creative southern mind is both exhausted and whirling all at once. But that’s kind of normal anyway, just normally not quite so in front of other people or out loud. I also injured another toe but that’s beside the point. We need to get you toe helmets, tbh. Oh, wait. I know what those are called. CLOSE TOED SHOES!!! I was actually at home when this one happened. I was at family’s house when the other toes were injured. Shoes could still be worn in dangerous situations. Wasn’t supposed to be dangerous.

I’ve been sick. (She reiterated because she’s literally done nothing but like complain, cry, and clean today. Look, three c’s!) Cleaning takes effort (mostly mental motivation) and all I really did was a lot of walking, and maybe waiting on that coffee that was really good. Anyway, rabbit hole. Redirection, same thing.

Okay, so basically this has been a life update and we have three minutes to spare. I have nothing else really interesting or that would make sense to everyone involved so I’m going to just tell you to wave your toes in the air like you just don’t care and always blink to your own drum beat. Oh, and don’t necessarily let other people try to make your “songs” into actual musical songs.
😀 ❤ 🙂 :O 😛 😉 :X :’D

I’m sorry. Drive safely, though it is now technically Sunday.

Things You Should Know: Senior Year Edition, Week 1

Good evening, young ones (or old ones or aliens… I’m very inclusive really)! She just likes aliens and old(er) people. Howdy, y’all!

Are you ready for the most useful post of your life? A post filled with the aged wisdom and knowledge of individually wrapped slices of cheese? A post that will change your life forever?!? (It could also be classified as the wisdom of seniors in high school. However, it’s not. Okay, now it is.)

It’s a list of a few things we’ve learned from the first week of our senior year and it goes as follows:

  1. No one in charge of a business stays at said business after lunch on Friday afternoons.
  2. Burble is probably one of the most fun words in existence. (Thanks to dictionary.com for teaching it to me via “word of the day.”)
  3. Do not wear conversational clothing. People will not stop talking about your torso all day.
  4. Even the nicest people seem snotty and give you bad vibes when they’ll only speak in a foreign language.
  5. Lunch tables are weird. Lunch is weird. Social systems are weird.  Also kind of annoying (lunch tables).
  6. You confuse people by considering a dead cell phone to be at “negative 1%” charge.
  7. The more water you drink, the more time you’ll spend washing your hands. I learned that the week before school started, ha ha. I mean, I’ve known that, but it merited repeating.
  8. People remember your group grammar mistakes a lot longer than they should. (I’ve also known this principle for a long time but it’s come back up.) I.E.: “Horses.”
  9. You can do math from other classes in math class. Apparently you should be allowed to be doing 2+2 in Calculus and your teacher pat you on the back. I mean, it was more like 3.56789034422×10^78/4.567890×10^-65, and then take that number and add convert it to “yactograms,” but you know… Whatever. Our other friends proclaimed the principle aforementioned in less specific terms though, I was just passing along how it sounded.
  10. You can create a lamp out of a book, cord, lightbulb, and bolt. Essentially, though I haven’t done it yet I’ve seen the product.
  11. If you try hard enough, you can nap anywhere. Even the lunch table with one hand on your soup spoon. (I didn’t actually sleep, but boy, could I have.)
  12. If your brain decides it’s not going to shut off, you very well might still be awake at 2:30 and then the next day isn’t near as fun as if it would’ve shut off when you originally attempted it at, say, 1:35. (It’s also less fun when you have to worry someone is going to hate you forever, but can’t keep your own mouth shut because ??? *blushy wide-eyed emoji* Then it all works out{the important part was that she wasn’t going to be hated at all anyway but wouldn’t admit to knowing that} and you’re all “^-^ heh!!” )
  13. There will be a lot of feels. You might even cry every night before falling asleep, despite having relatively good days. (Every day is full of emotions.)
  14. Corners of doors hurt heads if the two come into contact with each other. (I’m blaming other things than gravity, I’m not that unoriginal.)
  15. “You only have 180 days of school left. Let’s play games.”

That, my friends, is a very good descriptor of apparently how the rest of senior year is going to be since it was a quote (essentially, the words “Let’s play games.” were implied by handing us the cardboard box I’m pretty sure, but that’s beside the point) from during a class. So for now, we’ll keep learning as much as we can this school year and may periodically update you on what those things may be. ❤ 😀 🙂 😛 😉 ;P :’D

Drive safely…for the next 180 days. (Well, more than that, but school days.)

Zapped to Learn

Hi! 😀 I shouldn’t be this excited and I’m not really, it’s mostly a front because I’m very tired!!! 🙂 😀 And I’m less “tired” and more of anxiety zapped and have no energy whatsoever. I mean, my mother had to lead me out of the grocery store tonight like I was two. Of course, this much anxiety can only mean one thing, and that’s SCHOOL.

It’s a dirty word and could technically be a lot worse and it’s great that we have the privilege of the opportunity, but just because you’ve grabbed a bull by the horns doesn’t mean you like it. So, yeah, it’s not fun and means we’re about to start a whole new whirlwind, 180something odd day adventure that ends in other things that I’m done talking about tonight. (People asked questions.)

Basically it was the best of times, it was the worst of times, and everyone was tired.

Have a great school year (if you’re a part of that life) and drive safely.

😀 🙂 😛 ❤ :O :’D :/ 😥 😀 🙂

Words Happened.

Welcome. This post may contain vague lies (but they’re not really lies). They’re technicalities.

Ahem, what I mean is: I WAS PRODUCTIVE FOR ONCE!!!

Productive in a very vague way 😉 No, I’m teasing. I’m pretty proud of AJA, she accomplished something fairly major tonight. She can tell you what it is, though because I don’t want to steal her thunder 😛

I (I am little “i” quality, but ACG is a stickler for capitalization rules) finished another story and I have no clue what the word count is but I’d guess around 70K…. *blushes* *hides* *dies* She shouldn’t blush, hide, or die. It’s good. Anyway, back to what she was saying.

It’s a lot of words and I’m a little behind in my latest which is at…27938 as it currently stands. So it’s very impressive. Very. A lot. Quite. Significantly. Okay, I think I’m done with my lengthy list of adjectives now.

Other things that are impressive today and didn’t happen to me: ACG’s family traveled several hours to go to a weird surprise party and I’m scared about how they made it, like, work out and not be dead of traveling-trapped-in-car exhaustion???  It wasn’t that far. A couple hours one way. And it wasn’t nearly as impressive so quit trying to brush it off to me.

Words happened. 70,000 words happened over the course of like four months.

*cries* WHAT IS MY LIFE?!? Ahem. What I mean is: use your words wisely and drive safely as you travel to all of life’s many surprise parties? Is that a good one for this week? I think so.

write on and capitalize the word i 😉 🙂 😀 :’D :O 😛 :/ 😀 🙂
