As part of my ~genius recruitment bid~ for our handbell choir, I offered to bribe everyone with cookies. So I made cookies!

...And then rehearsal was canceled due to minor inconveniences like tornado watches.


* Well, not "invented" so much as "made up an easier recipe and given a stupid name". BUT THEY'RE DELICIOUS ANYWAY. SWEET VICTORY IS MINE.

Ahaha, it's not like I need my work email to do WORK-RELATED ACTIVITIES or anything.

Woke up this morning with a horrible ache/spasm in my left shoulder that either means I have yet to recover from having to shovel out the driveway for approximately forever last week (while my parents were in FLORIDA) or that I have been having a heart attack for the past three hours. Naturally, we are supposed to get more snow tomorrow.

On the other hand, I did make tasty Mexican Hot Chocolate last night!

El Chocolate Caliente En Fuego! )

So, if you are like me and totally fail at following current events, Pakistan is kind of underwater at this point and definitely needs everyone's help. You can text FLOOD to 27722 to donate $10; the Department of State's website has more info.

In much happier news, Elizabeth got married this weekend! Huzzah! Highlights include:

-- seeing Natasha before she flees to Tibet
-- being able to tell people we got kicked out of a club at the bachelorette partay
-- STEAMPUNK ANTLER EARRINGS (thanks, Katherine!)
-- contra dancing with Laura and unexpected Mike!
-- the wedding ceremony quietly being crashed by random Turkish tourists
-- Meera's bf deciding to tell everyone he was an Ultimate Fighter at the reception

Sadly, I was not able to go down to the 'Burg on Sunday and see more people :(

However, I did make it to the last concert of the Folk Fest, which was awesome! Even if I DID miss Vienna Teng on Friday, alas. I particularly liked Malinky, Rockin' Acoustic Circus, and Richard Thompson. I also picked up "Book of Sparrows" by Tracy Grammer, but I don't know if I like it yet -- it's very mellow.

And then I made banana bread yesterday. Mmmm, banana bread.

I like bananas! Bananas are good. )

In conclusion: I apparently missed the Back to School Meeting, which may or may not have been mandatory. Whoops? In my defense, I have received absolutely no information about it, aside from that the retirement plan rep would be appearing in the district at some point and other people were supposed to call him. I guess I am not included in the district's Psychic Information Network :(
