What Dinosaur Are You?

[via Inkycircus (http://www NULL.inkycircus NULL.com) ]

I am a Trodon:

Current research suggests that Troodon was a small and speedy carnivorous creature…according to your answers so are you!

Troodon had an unusually large brain for a dinosaur, compared to the size of its body. Its teeth were also out of the ordinary for a […]

Sentimental Slob

I admit it. I am a sentimental slob. I have always had a hard time letting go of things that were once pleasant, or loving or secure: relationships, situations, cars…

My worst vice in this department: hanging on to people. The hardest relationship lesson I ever had to learn was that some people move […]

Bread Machine Hijinks

Because she bought the Zojirushi, otherwise known as “the Cadillac of bread machines,” my mom gave meZojirushi BBCCX20 Home Bakery Supreme Bread Machine (http://www NULL.amazon NULL.com/gp/redirect NULL.html%3FASIN=B0000T6J3I%26tag=blogferret-20%26lcode=xm2%26cID=2025%26ccmID=165953%26location=/Zojirushi-BBCCX20-Bakery-Supreme-Machine/dp/B0000T6J3I%253FSubscriptionId=1N9AHEAQ2F6SVD97BE02) her old Panasonic bread machine. I believe it makes the 1.5 pound loaf, same as the bread maker we lost to Katrina, but mom said to make the 1 lb loaf recipe.

To try it out, I made one batch of honey oat bread that didn’t really rise. I thought that perhaps my yeast had expired, so I bought new yeast and made another loaf. That one seemed to rise, but not very high. It’s not really really dense, but it isn’t fabulously spongy either. So I decided to make the recipe I always made in my old bread machine (French Honey), and to live really dangerously, I made the 1.5 lb recipe. I put in the ingredients before I went to work this morning. Continue reading Bread Machine Hijinks

Scientists Find Evidence That Money Can’t Buy Happiness

I was over at Mindhacks (http://www NULL.mindhacks NULL.com) today and read an interesting blurb about the psychological nature of happiness. Most people think that having kids and getting more money will make us happy. Apparently, this isn’t true:

But the data show that money has minor and rapidly diminishing effects on happiness, and that […]

Hot Wheels Flash Drive Project

This would be such a great thing to make, if I had a dremel tool… Still, if you aren’t crafty, Rachel has many novelty USB keys for sale, too! (http://www NULL.freshlysqueezedflash NULL.com/projects/page3/page3 NULL.html)

This could be the solution to my desire for all things novelty USB. Everytime I see a new USB key shaped […]

Making Up (Your Mind) Is Hard To Do

I have always been terrible at decision making. I am often just as stymied by what to wear and what to eat as I am by major decisions, such as whether to go to the doctor for something, or lately, where to move. I’ve wanted to put a recipe section on my blog, but […]

How I Rot My Brain

So in the interest of providing new content to replace that hosed by the losers who hacked my site, I thought I might let y’all know how I waste my time. Besides the links that I am slowly adding to the sidebar under the “Almost Daily” category, I feel there are numerous other available […]

So I’m Back

Back after 42geeks.com was hacked by malicious little twinks. I have installed WordPress (http://www NULL.wordpress NULL.org) 2.0. I will soon install Gallery.

I don’t know if I like my new host because it doesn’t let me choose the names of my databases and email/ftp user accounts. It generates some random string. It’s kind of […]
