Quote du Jour:
â€œI was happy in Shanghai. I had a little house, and a garden. I went to parties all the time in limousines. I HATE being outside. Iâ€™m a singer. I could lose my voice.â€
–Willie, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
First and foremost, check out Syenlawâ€™s very cool new blog look (Itâ€™s WordPress! Three cheers for WordPress! :bow:) â€“ Voodooâ€™s Lounge. Itâ€™s fricking sweet.
Second, I didnâ€™t get a chance to blog about LOST. So here goes.
A slow episode, but I thought it was very revealing for several reasons. We get to learn how Mr. Echo is the way he is and why Ana-Lucia is such a hard core beotch. We know The Others want the kids but we donâ€™t know WHY and we know they had a list of the survivors and were taking the â€œgoodâ€ ones â€“ whatever that means. So Iâ€™m dying to know what makes some â€œgoodâ€ enough and others not. Like Nathan. Why didnâ€™t they want him? What made him not good enough? Was he not pure? Or just not pretty/handsome/athletic/smart enough? I absolutely HATE that Shannon really is dead, but the suspense is killing me on what Sayid is going to do to Ana-Lucia. Is he going to kick her ass? Next weekâ€™s previews looked great. Kate hugging Sawyer â€“ whatâ€™s that all about? That beotch doesnâ€™t deserve him after pining for Jack. Loser-girl. Plus – Hopefully weâ€™ll get the reunion with Bernard and Rose!
Baked my cappuccino cheesecake last night for the office Thanksgiving luncheon. I forgot to leave the cream cheese out all day and trying to soften it in the microwave is just never the same. So that was my first folly. Then I had a certain little sweetie boy wanting to help out â€“ he stuck his fingers in the coffee and liqueur mixture. It actually mixed up okay but (a) I didnâ€™t bake it in a water bath; (b) I forgot to put the pan of water in the oven to make it optimum environment (humid) for the cheesecake; (c) because my oven is STUPID, it baked it lopsided and nearly burned it one side; and (d) it freaking cracked all to hell after I refrigerated it. So when I went to slice it up this morning, it made something short of a disaster. Not my best work to be sure and Iâ€™m highly disappointed.
Anywayâ€¦ TGIF. Very happy itâ€™s Friday. Have a ton of work to do so I best get to it. Coming later today â€“ my entry for The Scruffy Dog Review blog (aka The Dog Blog). I need to go finish my entry!
