What The Hell Do I Do All Day?

It's like riding a moth. I would have to be able to type in multiple dimensions, simultaneously to accurately explain what I do all day. I would also need a new alphabet just to spell the words. Designing an alphabetter is on my list and I'm not talking about making another wacky font. It is time we revamped our system. I mean, Double U? Where's my Double N 4 M? Gimme a break.

In the meantime, here is one way to make chocolate:

Chucky T Update

What I got out of that Documentary ADD And Loving It is that I must have ADD. My neighbor said it made him think the same thing about himself. You too?




So a couple of days ago I was having what I call a chocolate temper tantrum.  I continue forward hoping it will get easier if I do it a million times, but for now tempering chocolate remains predictably hectic.  After I pour the chocolate into the mold, I slide it into the fridge for a few minutes. I should clear the shelves in the fridge before I get to this stage.

I am frantically moving stuff around in the fridge with one hand to make room for the full, flimsy, mold tray in my other hand. In the process I knocked a full quart of yogurt onto the floor, covering my sneaker.

I looked at the stark white creamy clean blobs on my beater Chucky T's and I realized I ought to give an update  on my war against Nike for raising the price of Chuck Taylors beyond my means. Or even worse, beyond their worth. Here is a link to the original post back in July 2009
$44 for sneakers that wear out in a summer. Please. I have been rocking these ever since.



Oh Crap! This  just in, I just checked and now they are $50!! Well they can suck it. I'm going to wear my old ones til I die! Unless I get distracted.


I wear them pretty frequently and they are holding up well. I am mending them as they devolve. I sew like Rambo. A child couldn't work on these kicks even if it was legal!
I am pleased to report that my Dalmation felted tootsie cozys are holding up strong!
