So, we managed to make a strawberry rhubarb pie without any filling ingredients: no sugar, no flour, no tapioca. It's actually not awful, just mushy.

had a panic attack at pet's mart. trying to find a companion for mady and things were moving to fast. we found a jumbo maine coon who was a big guy like mar but the color of mar's mom...<3 him. but i just started freaking out. it went from not wanting another cat, to having mady dumped in our yard to finding her a friend because she needs a companion...we have a date to test drive some cats next week when i am settled.

i feel so bad....i gave them $25 & they are our friends....i still feel like a asparagus.

The Holland & Barratt near where I work had their freezer defrost overnight so there are 4 bin bags of mostly defrosted vegan food going in the trash tonight. What a waste! Part of me wants to go round the back later and salvage what is still edible.

I'm back from holiday in Amsterdam. I had a really good time, and the hotel was nice, but the bed was terrible for being able to feel every move the other person made. Last night I dreamt I was in a building partially demolished by earthquakes (when I was able to catch any sleep at all!).

I'm so bored. I just finished a book but don't want to launch right in to another. What I really want to do is watch Adventure Time or something but the TV-viewing computer is in use (by its owner, so I can't exactly force him to let me use it). I should catch up on Twitter or The Mary Sue, but I don't really want to do anything that tequires effort of any kind. This is where my iPad-instead-of-computer plan fails.

Have you got the TV Catchup app, Rachel? You can just watch normal tv in real time on it.

I have never heard of that! I'll check it out.

ETA: It looks like it's only available to people with a TV licence and it's got some pretty bad reviews. And it's for live TV, which I'm not all that interested in. But thanks for the suggestion!

Rachell37 can you get Netflix or something for your iPad? How do you usually watch Adventure Time? Could you watch it on the You Tube app?

I watch (probably illegal) links online on Mike's computer. Netflix only has the 1st season. Not sure about YouTube. Also, I don't like to watch stuff without headphones unless I'm alone because Mike is usually playing a game without headphones, and I can't figure out the headphone situation on the iPad (unless it's nonexistent as I suspect - there's one non-charger hole in this business and it didn't want to accept my headphones).

Oh, but at least the boredom drove me to buy my nephew's birthday presents and get Whole Grain Vegan Baking for myself!

I've been feeling pretty sad for my pup lately... I've been a lot busier than normal, not spent as much quality time with her. So tonight I just decided to make popcorn and put on a movie, for her, not me. Ugh love this pup so much. I hate that I can't take her everywhere I go.

I sliced my finger open pretty badly just now...I don't think it warrants stitches, but this is the worst cut I've ever had... I've spun a paper towel around it and secured it with packing tape and it isn't bleeding through anymore. Mostly I'm a klumsy idiot for slicing a half frozen bagel. -.-

nothing says 'first aid' quite like packing tape!

I would be shocked if your iPad doesn't have a headphone port! It's on the top lefthand side. Do your headphones have a 3.5mm metal plug? Some headphones come with a larger plug but unless they're super old that part should screw off to reveal a smaller one.

So, update: after a night of sleeping, it probably does need stitches. It's pretty nasty, and of course it was with a serrated knife, so it looks way worse than a normal cut would. I needed a physical anyway, and the clinic had an open time, so I'm headed in. I'm worried that I won't have enough money, though, because my debit card was cancelled and I only have $300.00 left on my CC. Ugh.

Mars: HAH! My dad works construction and always gets awful scrapes and cuts. He's never used a band-aid in his life...just duct tape.

I did the exact same thing this morning!! I was trying to slice a frozen roll. I think hunger was clouding my judgment...

Yours sounds way worse though. I'm sorry!

Haha, I'm a numpty! I just didn't push hard enough when I tried to use my headphones the first time! Just tried it again and it worked.

ha. thanks guys! i wonder if they really don't carry them in NY or if that lady is just full of shiitake. I would think they'd be necessary here. It takes me an hour to get home from the Whole Foods I was at on the train, so I can never buy ice cream there.


No, I hope that offered one at the UES one a couple months back.

I do it all the time! It's just that one spot that the two halves are attached, so I just slip a knife into the bagel and pop it apart. But this time I guess I just slipped. Four stitches and 196 dollars later...guh.

Just wanted to say, thanks to lavawitch, my husband and I catch one another singing "you've got to run run run, you've got to hit top speed" at least 3 times a week.

In other words, you are awesome, and thank you for that link, from, like ages ago, but it still plays a fun little role in our lives. :)

I love you for that! Now that song is stuck in my head again. I think I finally got it out a week ago.

My mom was angry at me for showing her that video. She really hated it! I had the same reaction from other people too. Boo!

(Hey! Did anybody hear? There's a dinosaur stampede!)

ooops, sorry. But not really - because anything sung with a Scottish accent is brilliant in my mind.

And we have the wind pattern site on our favorites bar. Our fave weekend weather channel guy now refers to it, and we're all "humph, not impressed Chris, we knew about that ages ago, thanks to lavawitch"

There is one for world ocean currents too, but I lost the link. I need to try to find it.
