  1. Nothing very cool. Knitting, crocheting are my big ones. But I also paint and draw. Course, now my hobby is trying to get some sleep, because I have no energy to do any of my hobbies.... So...
  2. If you store asparagus upright that way they'll stay fresh for a week or more without getting slimy! That's a really good suggestion about blanching. I think I'll do that! Yup, I think you're right - easier to just cook them first then add them to the broth.. thank you!
  3. That.. Looks... SO uncomfortable. How do you sleep? Bend over? Put on shoes?? .. Actually she's obviously good at bending over... But still. Her skin looks like it's about to bust open like a pork bun with too much filling.
  4. There are women out there who can cook. Just don't expect a feminist to be able to, that's like asking if they'll work for equal wage.
  5. Have I mentioned how attractive you look today??
  6. I could actually use some cooking advice and Google is failing me. I have a ton of fresh asparagus that was supposed to be used at Thanksgiving (it was not) so to use it up I'm making a big pot of fresh asparagus soup. Here's me question: I've currently got my spears chilling upright in an inch of water very happily. The recipe calls for the spears to be cut into one inch lengths - is there ANY way I can prep this now (cut them up) and put them back in the fridge without them getting woody?? (I have three little ones running around, you either prep food during naptime or you don't get fed) Thanks!
  7. Lol! Just wait until you google what a "stretch and sweep" is. XD
  8. More like "don't forget to make a boob pancake"day
  9. Tim's or McDonald's
  10. Its not unmasculine to know how to cook, it doesn't make you an idiot if you're not especially talented at it either. (If you can boil water, you can feed yourself) I can't change the oil in my car, I'm not strong enough to rotate the tires and I don't think it makes me an idiot to rely on a man for that. That being said, if I knew how to do car stuff, I don't think it would make me any less feminine.
  11. Yup, not much has changed in 6 years. It's oddly comforting.
  12. Hiya hun. Brian summoned me. Drew a pentagram with maple syrup, ringed with maple leaves and sacrificed a beaver. I couldn't NOT show up.
  13. Are you some kinda psychic?!?
  14. Oooo lovely. I love Westport.
  15. It's ringing a bell....:)Ottawa Valley. Where you at??
  16. East coast commie. Only lived out west for a year, decided that it sucked and moved back. Snow from October to May every year and Edmonton refuses to plow for goodness knows why. S'awful. Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? .... Thaaaats right, straight from your nightmares and onto your screen, iiiittttsssss *me!*
  17. Heck yes. Every single year.
  18. This is my costume. I wear it every year. Remi asked why I never wore a sexy costume, but then seemed disappointed when I put a bra on over top.. you just can't please some people.
  19. Navigating. Honestly I could get lost in a cardboard box. Back before GPS I would cry at the side of the road a lot, but not for the usual reasons. ....
  20. Congrats on the fishing girl! That's awesome. Yeah, 8, 4 and nine months. It's a busy house. Was out west, but now in Ontario. So much nicer than Alberta (imo)
  21. The baby is now 8 and I've got two other munchkins now. Remi and I are doing well, moved out to the country, living that rural life. I didn't think it was that bad either, just a touch of snark. Buuut I thought I could shoot with **** with her like I did the other guys. Found out I was mistaken. Lol. How you been Pete??
  22. Lol I remember that! Panties got extremely twisted, bless her heart.
  23. I haven't been described as way cool in many moons. I'm sure my coolness has dropped in the past *squints* ..5 years. See, that makes sense. I assumed you must not do turkey for both. I've always wanted to try one of those deep-fried turkeys or that turducken monstrosity. It's like some foodie watched the human centipede and got this great idea... Ah thanks, he's doing better now that we have him on some meds. He's 9 months and you can't freaking give them anything. I, a grown ass woman, get a cold and load up to the teeth with pain killers and antihistamines, and this tiny little baby who is even less capable of dealing with things we are just like "well, he'll power through", very this-is-Sparta.
  24. Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in! (I blame Brian)
  25. Coulda been better. Food was fabulous, but baby #3 had croup and was a bit of a mess. I always wondered that about American Thanksgiving, you have yours in November, then have basically the same dinner again at Christmas, don't you find it too close together to make Christmas feel special??
