Cooking Pad Thai (A Story)

Last night I was hungry, and so even though it was only Monday, I decided to make a meal.

But first the dishes were piled too high to wash the saucepan that I needed to cook noodles in.

My hands grumble at me if I wash dishes without gloves, but the pair I have right now has at least one hole, so I decided “Imma risk it.”

(Quote from The Finder – a show I thought I didn’t like at all from seeing it’s crossover ep with Bones, but ended up liking a lot!)

 

But it also gave me an idea for a biodegradable, spray-on glove that melts away as you wash, and can just rinse down the drain, and I think that’d be great, but I have no idea what it’d be made of, or how that a sprayed?-adhesive?-vegetable-based? matter would actually work…

An Inside Look At My Brain During a Conversation

conversation-vintage

I feel like I’m the only one who talks with other people the way that I do. So, I know I’m not. Most anytime I think, golly this is terrible. Why am I so weird and do ___? I see someone post something somewhere, and I realize not only am I not the only one, I suddenly feel a lot better, and like it’s manageable, too.

I don’t know why, but I’m so glad. It’s kinda like magic…

So, I thought it might be entertaining, but perhaps also helpful if I wrote about how my brain worked as I met someone new the other day.

The conversation is still fresh in my head, and it was with someone I’m unfamiliar with, so I was well aware of what was happening as it happened, as well as not actually having a familiar flow to settle into.

Winter Nail Art Challenge – New Years

I’m 2 days late on this challenge. Apologies!!

Today is the final challenge in Winter NAC, and the theme is New Years!! *party hat* My thanks to Helena at Lacky Corner for hosting this challenge series! I had a lot of fun making and designing these manis! 😀 And thanks to everyone who viewed, left comments, liked, and *ahem Mom and BT* helped with painting the designs!

Since many of my previous challenge entries have featured the nails, individually, I felt like doing a more cohesive nail art design for this one.

Selective Memory

In school, I briefly took a logic course. There was a chapter on “selective memory” which I found disturbing.

As I recall, the idea is, say you go into a photo booth, 10 times. 8 out of those 10 times you get pricked. Likely as not, when you think about going into a photo booth next, you’re going to think or say, “I don’t want to. I always get hurt when I go in there.”

But the truth of the matter is, twice, you didn’t get stabbed and you had a great time. But either a positive or a negative memory has the capability or overshadowing other memories so that really truly in your mind you only remember the negative/positive experiences.

Also, the other thing is you’re more likely to notice when something happens versus when something doesn’t happen. Usually, unless they are being facetious, someone wouldn’t say, “Remember that time you didn’t tell a joke?”

Winter Nail Art Challenge – Winter Characters

Winter Characters is such a cool theme idea, but I had trouble landing on what I wanted to do. Were my skills up for drawing the cast of Hogfather? What about Scrooge and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future? Frosty has usually scared me, and I definitely wasn’t going to be able to pull off the Grinch.
