mellicious: pink manicure (M&Ms)
I have been on this huge M&Ms tear lately. I don't eat a huge amount of them - I have been buying those bags of the seasonal ones, I guess they're half a pound? and one of them lasts for well over a week, which means I'm only eating an ounce or so a day - but I get unhappy when I run out. I'm kicking myself now, because Walgreen's had the Christmas ones for 75 cents a bag, and I only bought ONE. And by the time I thought better of that and went back again they were all gone. (Except dark chocolate, which I don't do. No dark chocolate, no mint, no peanut butter. I like the peanut ones but I like plain the best.) I guess now I have to go buy the pink ones instead.

OK, if Roger Clemens follows Andy Pettitte from New York to Houston and back again, I'm going to start seriously wondering if they're more than just friends. 'Cause that's more than just a little strange, otherwise.

I wish today was my half-day. Oh well, we are off Monday, so I'm only working 3-1/2 days next week. Can't complain too much about that.

Mmm, fudge

mellicious: pink manicure (winter snowflake)
It is late and I am tired, and I am thinking about making fudge. Am I crazy? Well, maybe so, but I may do it anyway.

I'm not really sure why, but Armed and Famous sounds like the funniest thing ever. I can't help it. Celebrities with guns! Honestly, how can you beat that? (Maybe that is more proof that I'm really tired, but no, I've been thinking that for days, ever since I found out they were actual cops, all legal and everything. It just sounds like comedy gold, that's all I can say.)

There is fudge. Usually, every time I cook, I end up thinking about the reasons why I don't cook more; one of the major ones is that it's a serious minepit for somebody with attention-deficit disorder. There's a million ways to screw things up - not only burning the food and the obvious things like that, but also the truly dangerous stuff - burning me, or somebody else, waving a knife the wrong way at the wrong time. (I have come close to doing that one before.) Anyway, the good thing about this fudge recipe is that you don't step away from it for even ten seconds while it's cooking, so there's no danger of even somebody as spacy as me forgetting about it. It seems to be fine, and I will probably make another batch tomorrow. But not tonight.

(This was the fudge recipe I wrote about the other day - it's also here. I did double the pecans, more or less - I put half of a one-pound bag of pecan pieces in there. This is going to be some seriously nutty fudge.)

I didn't really do much today. I played GuildWars a lot - the Wintersday celebration is in full swing so that gave everybody new things to do - and I wrapped presents, and we went to the grocery store. Then I played GuildWars some more, and goofed around... and then I made fudge at 1 in the morning. That's about it.
