The power flickered. For like half a nanosecond. And so now I have no internet.

*huff huff pout*

*arms crossed*

*pissed off face*


And all because Rat has some like crazy firewall for our firewall’s firewall or some crap like that. I really don’t care anything about it until it inconveniences me.

So when the power flickers Rat’s pile o’computers in his office go “AHHHHHHHHHH!!!” and I can never remember which computer I’m supposed to reboot and if I reboot the wrong one or push the wrong button on the right one, I’m pretty sure I’ll blow up our house or all the computers at NASA or something will all cut off. Pretty much I’m just terrified of technology. Or blowing up. I’m not sure.

Since I have no internet, I have been forced to entertain myself in ways other than reading y’all’s fabulous blogs. So I’m baking a cake! A sour cream coffee cake, to be more precise. Actually…it doesn’t have any coffee in it, so I get confused whenever I tell people what it is. It’s really yummy. It’s got cinnamon and brown sugar in it. Since our oven has lost it’s freakin’ mind lately, I’m trying making the cake in a different way. Instead of making it in one of those, um, round-type pans with the hole in the middle, I’m making it in two bread-type pans. Hopefully this will work better than when I tried to make one for my friend Super Model and her BF. I cooked it nearly 45 minutes longer than normal and it was still RAW inside. DO NOT WANT.

The cake (or cakes, since I split the batter up) has been in the oven about 30 minutes now. Time to check on it….brb…

Well, it was fine when I left it to go pick up Rat at TaeKwonDo, but when we got back, not so much. One was alright, I’ll just have to peel a corner off, but the other one had to lose it’s whole top layer (it’s got 3). Strangely enough, the rest of the cake is fine. No burns on the bottom or sides at all. Freakin’ possessed oven.

Great. There goes the power again. Super.

I just hollered up to Rat to “Fix the internet” and he just kind of laughed at me. Hey, we don’t call him “The Computer Whisperer” for nothin’!

In other news, IT’S DAMN HOT!!!! I took out the trash today (only because it reaked to high heaven) and I think my hair nearly caught on fire. I think God’s up there with a giant magnifying glass.

**update on the cake** I just snuck a “sample” out of the one that looks like it got gnawed on and it’s yuuuummyyyyy! I’m going to have to use every ounce of my willpower to stay out of it until after dinner.

YAY! Internet! Oh sweet internet! Never leave me again or I just may die of boredom and burnt pastries!

Speaking of burnt pastries……*sneaking back into the kitchen….to…um….to make dinner….I swear!*

nom nom nom….mmmm….cake…..

Let me just go ahead and apologize now for the complete lack of focus and direction of this post.  There’s just lots of jumblyness going on in my head and I can’t pick just one thing to write about, and also lots of the things are little short quickie things that are just a few sentences and y’all would read and go “that’s it?  two sentences?  bah!  I will never read this blog again.”  and we all know we can’t let that happen!  Okay.  Blah.  On with it then.


First, I can’t believe I missed my blogiversary!!!  (is that a word?  did I just make up a word?)  July 27th, 2006 I decided to start writing shit down and I can’t believe it’s been a year!  Well….a year and a few years now.  Oops.  We should have a party!  Like, I guess, we all get drunk and blog…or something…and leave crazy comments…on other people’s blogs…that don’t make sense…or something like that.  hee hee.


Next up.  I have invented an invention.  It’s a gas mask for your ass.  More specifically, it’s a gas mask for your HUSBANDS ass.  I call it the ass massk.  *snort*giggle*  It’s like a tiny little gas mask (duh) that straps to your (husband’s) ass so that you don’t go to sleep at night afraid.  (like me)  I mean MY GOD!  Last night all I could say was “DUUUUUUUUUUDE”.  And Rat has the nerve to look at me all innocent like “what?”.  But he could only pull that off for a few seconds and then he dissolved into fits of hysterical laughter.  I’m thinking that the “Ass Massk” (note the double S in massk) should be put out by Febreez.  And it could have refillable scent cartridge things.  I had this all planned out last night while trying not to breathe the noxious fumes, but I think those brain cells have been compromised by *cough* something *cough*.


Ants.  God how I hate those little bastards.  That’s pretty much all I got on that subject.


Blu-ray = awesome.  I usually can’t tell the difference between new technology type stuff, but I can really tell the difference with blu-ray.


I’m sure I have a million and one more things to write about, but I can’t think of any more of them tonight.  *yawn*
