Three Things


OK. I am posting. Finally! You probably thought I was dead.

Three things:

1. I bought beer today and WAS NOT CARDED. What in the world? Was it my matronly outfit? The glasses? The grey hair? grrrrrrrrrr. I am never wearing that outfit again.

2. We are all moved in to the Avocado House!! It is so great and quiet and fun and huge. The view of the city lights from up on top of the hill is AMAZING! If anyone wants to come visit, there are 6 places for you to sleep (counting the weird long and wide cupboard if you want to pretend you're Fernando from Catacombs)

3. If you have nothing to eat except pantry items, try this: just make some pasta with white sauce (melt 2 T. butter in a saucepan, then stir in salt, pepper and 2 T. flour until bubbly, then stir in 1 c. milk and boil and stir for one minute. I added some basil to make a pretend creamy-pesto sauce).

To make it seem more real, throw in a vegetable. I found a red pepper and cut it up and threw it in. It was gourmet! mwa! (kiss)

Yeah, they should definitely card all women of all ages, just to avoid this kind of thing... I always get carded when I shave, and never when I don't.

You rock! I dub you "queen of the pantry."

I would like to come for dinner and maybe a sleepover.

that is a good idea - carding all women. Even 80 year olds. Just think how flattered they would feel, especially stores that have those signs that are like: "If you appear 30 or younger, we will card you."

Dude, I'm not even old enough to get carded anyway! I'm working on it. I'm glad you got all moved in and posted. I'm with mom on that dinner and sleepover self-invite! :D

Hey! I make that meal all the time! Great minds think alike, eh? It's really good if you throw a little fresh garlic or onion in with the bubbling butter. Mmm. I bet the reason you weren't carded was because the dude was just lazy. You totally don't look thirty. Come on.

If you want to get carded, don't look the clerk in the eye, mumble a lot, and act like you're in a big hurry.
Some of us are better at this brand of immaturity than others...
