i got my polycarbonate fancy chocolate molds in today, so the very next confectionary adventure will be filled molded chocolates. I am super pumped. Totally going to make sea salt caramel.

Happy thanksgiving everyone!

I hope it was a good day for all involved, or at the very least you ate too much and passed out on the couch.

after some inspiration from a forum post, i decided to not only make my own marshmallows, but to make them self-contained smores. They're only halfway done now, but i'm pretty pumped, so i wanted to share a picture. I'm coating the top side with graham crumbs, and the bottom side will get coated in 60% dark chocolate. They're going to be fabulous.

Recently my girlfriend has been feeling somewhat german-ish, and we went down to this awesome german restaraunt in OKC just recently. We both decided that the pretzels were tasty enough to try to make at home. And here are the results!
pretzel! )

pondering dumping LJ. 90% of my page anymore is people's twitter stuff that i've probably already read ON twitter

in the continuing series of things i do at 4 am, i forgot to take the trash out, so before i went to bed, i had to. As it's been wet and rainy here for the last several days, i found a particularly wet and slippery spot on the driveway and busted 100% of my ass. :(

quite a few of them also have a certain element of 'yes. exactly this.' :)

everything went fine, it was actually a lot smoother than i think we expected

so with the recent re-release of marvel vs capcom 2 on the 360 and probably soon the ps3, i decided i wanted to play the dreamcast version again. However, upon trying to look for my binder of DC games, i came up depressingly empty handed. :(

edit: found them, discovered i sold mvc2 on goozex a while back. oh well!

small update, things are going pretty good. Had an enjoyable time this weekend seeing people, but i find myself wondering if my path in life isn't taking me away from certain people and things i used to do and be comfortable with

pretty much just feeling low-level persistant annoyed and grumpy today. things suck. mostly just want to get back in bed and not get out.

bad sign?

so i've just started actually ''doing" twitter, by that i mean having stuff sent to my phone and actually replying to some stuff some times. I have a lot of people followed that i know from the internets already, but for anyone else who feels like adding me, my name on there is 'Scrobble'

so i figured out yesterday that my last paycheck from my former employer bounced. Good times. I'm not sure exactly how to say 'give me my money' in the most polite yet persuasive way possible

i was reading an email newsletter thing today, and saw http://twhitler.com/ . It collects all the mentions of hitler from twitter, and puts them together. pretty funny.

got fired today, pretty sweet. boss said she needed to 'cut hours'. Not exactly sure why she hired me in the first place.
