Julie and Julia

Okay, so the idea is definitely stolen from the movie Julie and Julia. If you haven't seen it, watch it. Even if you are a guy, grab a girl to watch it with you if your "man-card" must be protected. It is very clever and I found it inspirational. Maybe I am really deciding to do this challenge because my mother has the Food network up.

Next semester, when I am back into the swing of things, I am going to try to cook something different everyday. Of course I can already think of things that will get in the way of this challenge (D-now).

I really want to become a better cook. I mean, I know my way around a kitchen and I can follow a recipe. I just want to try to cook new things. Right now I am trying to see if I can find a "365 day cooking challenge" and just check off the list.

I'm blogging this because knowing me, I'll change my mind about wanting to do this (hello laziness). I really do like cooking but I also get exhausted by the end of the day and just eat popcorn (or make the boyfriend by me fast food). Also I want to try to get away from eating fast food; it is not helping my fight of keeping my girlish figure.

Maybe I will blog about my adventures in the kitchen, not the extent of Julie, but maybe once a week.

Maybe I won't do this challenge... although, I'd hate to make this entry a waste.

Any ideas, recipes, encouragement, flowers, would be great! :)

Self stirring mugs and bacon pillows...these are a few of my favorite things.

Usually, in my blogs I talk about what is going on in my life; however, my life is involving projects and finals. I just don't want to think about it right now. Solution: examine bazaar possible gifts my loved ones might receive if I become loopy enough from lack of sleep+ energy drink consumption.
Okay, I actually find this one useful. A self stirring mug! 

First of all, there seems to be this fad of being obsessed with zombies. While I normally try to stay away from anything that says "band wagon" on it, I decided that this was too weird to not share.
That's right, folks. We are even providing mints for those that will eat us. Or perhaps this is a prevention tactic some are using. If someone who is of the undead is telling you they are craving brains, just whip this sucker out and you will live another day.
Don't want to leave the vampire lovers out. That's right folks, pass on your creepy obsession to your babies.

I might get this for my boyfriend. He made a power-point of bacon when he was in seventh grade. Listen, I appreciate bacon as much as the next guy, but I don't think I am comfortable enough to start cuddling with a pillow version. I am just not ready for that commitment yet. Oh, in case you were wondering, this jewel costs $20.

You can't have bacon without eggs...or...egg

Sally: Hey Harry?
Harry: Yes Sally? 
Sally: What should I get my friend Bob for Christmas?
Harry: Well, Sally what is he like?
Sally: Well, Harry. He misses his childhood, has a sense of adventure, gets cold easily but hates it when he can't use his hands!
Harry: Sally, I have just the solution for you.... listen to me carefully.... Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Snuggies! 

I had to create a whole section for these lovelies...

Here is something for that special someone who is into ghetto-fabulous things.

Have a friend who is constantly complaining about their lack of 'fierceness?' Slap these babies on them and no one will be able to compete. Nothing says 'friendship' like ridiculous jewelry.

Here is a gift for a friend that loves tea way too much.

This puts a whole new meaning to 'saving your food.'

So folks, there you have it.  Why settle for something boring like books or movies, when you can show that you love your family through trashy jewelry and food-obsessed pillows? If you truly love your family, don't you think you should start thinking out of the box?
