Made Sylvia Plaths tomato soup cake, in muffin form. I thought it would be nasty, but I really like it.

This etsy shop sells writer inspired tea (it looks like they're out of most of them). I think the Zelda Fitzgerald would be my fave. Chai, orange peel and mango. Also like the sound of the Oscar Wilde.

Baking

A while ago, I was going through a rut. A depression. I decided to watch Hot Shots!, because it was the type of stupid movie I needed at the time. While watching the end credits, I noticed there was a recipe for brownie topping. Turns out, there are two recipes and one is for Nobby Buns. I have no idea why they are called nobby buns, but I love making them. They taste good warm with butter and homemade apple sauce.

Anyway, it made me realize that baking was a good way to get my head in order. Measuring ingredients and what not. Usually I'll make cookies, they are almost always oversized. I don't have the patience to make smaller ones. I guess that's not a bad thing though. Here are the three best cookies I've made so far:

  1. Soft oatmeal cookies with cocoa powder and shredded coconut. They didn't really spread and were really thick. The batter broke one of my spatulas. So now I use my hands and it's all messy, but I like it. It was a bastardization of several different oatmeal cookie recipes.

  2. Mud cookies. Here is a similiar recipe. I found our recipe while going through some old papers. It's written in green gel pen and I have no idea who wrote it. I baked the cookies for a bit so that they were crispy on the outside. Then I coated them with melted white chocolate. I put them in tins for Christmas. I made these at Harpys place and she was always picking at me, so it was sort of stressful to make them. But they were super yum.

  3. I tried to make Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies, similiar to these recipes. I had those Oreos with the mint flavoured cream. I realized too late that I had eaten most of them and only had four left. So I broke them into little pieces. I also didn't have as many chocolate chips as I thought, so I used those and cocoa powder. The batter was super sticky and I was really impatient, so I only ended up with 6 large cookies. But they were fucking good. The mint was subtle.

I haven't read any of her books yet, but I've been reading Roxane Gays tumblr. Sometimes she will post sort of a diary where she recounts something she cooked, alongside what is on her mind at the time. I made these cherry brown butter bars after reading this entry (tw: eating disorders). It was the only time where I actually had the ingredients already. I don't have a cherry pitter, so I had to do it by hand. It was messy, but tasty.

I also made these gummy bear cookies. Except with gummy worms cut into peices. They are really pretty, like cookies with stained glass. I dunno. I wasn't too much into the taste, but everyone else liked them. They tasted alot like these cookies my mom used to buy all the time that I hated.

I have never been able to make brownies that live up to my satisfaction. I don't usually bother with icing cupcakes. I never ice cakes.

A fortune cookie had the audacity to tell me I would not have to worry about my future! Fuck you fortune cookie!

I am qualified for two (so far) internships next year. Wont find out many details until June.

Don't know what else to write. Nothing very interesting has been happening. Drunkards daughters wedding is the day after tomorrow. I've only met her once, but she seems nice. I'm not going, I didn't even know about it until recently.

I'd love to go to a Renaissance wedding. Swords and big turkey legs!

Except for the funeral, I haven't seen TaSha since last June. Hmmm.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Right now I'm craving a Lindt chocolate bunny. Or a marshmallow peep, I don't remember if I like them or not, but I haven't had one in years. I also like those candy covered chocolate eggs with the pop rocks in them.

For Christmas, I like those candy cane hershey kisses.

My sister goes trhough some interesting phases. Back when she thought John Mellencamp was her soulmate, she found out that he had open heart surgery (or at least she said she did), and became obsessed with open heart surgery. She bought cow hearts for dinner. They tasted okay, but she is sometimes a bad cook, so they could have tasted better.

At my sisters place. We're having Christmas here this year. I'm on potato peeling duty. 10 pounds of them. We take the mashed potatos (potatoes?) seriously. I had a dream that Mar woke me up to start peeling while it was dark out. Then I woke up for real and it was light out. I actually thought for a moment that I had slept in and we would have to have instant mashed potatoes (potatos?).

I'm the only one up here, and I'm sure everyone at my house is also asleep.

I'm not used to this lap top keyboard.

I miss drinking Shirley Temples. I need to get grenadine. It sounds like a drug and it's expensive.

I was a young nun, or a new nun, I don't know if they have a special name. While I and three other girls were only allowed to eat rice cakes (or something), the head nun got big cinnamon rolls.

[Error: unknown template qotd]When I was little and was eating chips, sometimes I'd get a folded chip. My friends and I would always wish on those. When I was little I wished for world peace, but as I got older I wished to be rich. Hah.

I'm okay with most green vegetables. Though I prefer spinach raw. But I hate brussel sprouts. Broccoli is awesome, I have no idea why so many people hate it.

I think I accidently drank some moonshine when I was little. Was gross.

See? I'm not anorexic as some people seem to believe. I doubt a person with anorexia would eat bacon (if anything). Just because someone is skinny, doesn't mean they are drug addicts or have and eating disorder. Just as not all "overweight" people are pregnant or lazy (this is me reffering to tabloids "Oh my gah, Gwens pants are too tight! She's pregnant!"). People just have different body types and metabolisms (sp?), I wish people would realize that and get off my back! Plus there are many factors that go into weightgain/loss, other than food.

I also don't go for that BMI bullshit. I'm 5'5" (according to my sisters tape measure), and 116 lbs (according to my doctor, but I wouldn't trust his eyesight too well). I have no idea what my BMI is, and I'm fine with that. Except I'm cold a lot, and clothes are very loose on me. Ah well, I like sweaters. Also I'm a little weak, so I need some muscle.

But I do want to gain some weight, just to get people to leave me alone. Sometimes I eat when I'm not hungry, just so people don't think I'm skipping a meal. And I'm tired of feeling guilty when I shouldn't have to. Especially in my fourth period class, I hear a lot about anorexic models and girls starving themselves over body image. It also doesn't help that my sister watches a lot of Dr. Phil, and similiar shows.

Well, today we went to Freeds to get my school uniform (fucking expensive). Kilts are $65. What I like about Freeds the most, are the suits they sell. Pinstripe, so sexy. I think they sell fedoras also.

One of my ex-friends called me today. I didn't answer. Could have been her mom also. I dunno. Don't care.

I feel very paranoid today. At some points I felt like I was going to vomit... Do saltines make anyone elses stomach feel better? So weird.

I want to read The Endless

So far, seven people have taken my survey. I'm interested in what they put...

I go back to school on the 6th! *sobs*

On w/ annoying online journal whining/ranting:
My summer sucked, my family sucks! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Why!?

Anyway, I went to the movies over 10 times this summer. Some of the movies were okay, some were a waste of money. There's a whole bunch of other crap I did this summer, but I don't feel like typing it.

I want skittle bubble gum! I love skittles!
