Tonight, While my parents were out of the house having some alone time, I decided “Hey, I want some garlic bread.” so I hauled out the ingredients to make the dough. By the time I had the dough made, Mom and Dad were home and I said to mom “Oh, Hey, I’m making garlic bread. Want some?” and of course, she said yes. I mean, who doesn’t like garlic bread? Other than people who are lactose intolerant or can’t eat grains. Which must be really horrible, Because garlic bread is a delicious yet fattening dish. What’s not to love?
I then decided to start making my garlic butter, with some spices and stuff in it. Usually Mom just chucks some chopped up garlic in butter, but I usually just slowly melt butter and garlic in a pan. I was feeling a bit lazy, so I decided to just microwave the butter, With a clove of garlic that I cut in half and chucked in. the microwave we are currently using is only 700 watts, so you have to put things in for about twice as long as a regular microwave. So I put it in, and I watch it. After about 3 seconds, I see a flame. so I open the microwave, check it out, and sure enough, The garlic had spontaneously burst into flames. Awesome, right?
So I go into the room that Mom’s in and say “Mommy, I made fire in the microwave!” And you think that’s something that would alarm most parents, And likely ban you from using the microwave again. But no, Not my mother. she said “Really? That’s awesome! Lets go see if you can do it again!”
So we went, finished microwaving it and no flames appeared. they were slightly disappointed, But I showed them where the garlic charred, So they know it did actually light on fire. Meaghan said at first she thought I was joking, But no. I really am that awesome that I make things (such as garlic) spontaneously burst into flames.
Emma’s birthday is tomorrow and I think she’s pretty excited. She’s having a rainbow cake too, Which is pretty sweet. I can’t believe she’s turning 7, too.
I got all my Christmas shopping done.. Well, most of it, I still have a couple things to do, but we’re going out on Thursday for a grocery run, So I’ll be able to take care of it then.
Oh, and today I was making Emma some fries, I got them out, then she said to me very seriously – “I want the French ones.”
Dad didn’t get it until Mom told him that I told Emma the other day that in the US they call them freedom fries. It was pretty cute though.
Not really much else.. Haven’t been up to much, Really, It’s been snowy and cold here, It’s only going to get colder though I suppose. Addison and Kaytlyn are coming up in a week for Christmas and I’m totally excited to see my BFF Kaytlyn, And they’re staying for longer this time so it should be good. I think we’re likely going to Aunt Boo and Leroy’s while they’re up, too, So that should be fun.
So I’m sitting here listening to The Libertines, which I haven’t listened to in ages. Death On the Stairs, to be specific. Which is all kinds of awesome.
So we went Christmas shopping yesterday, I got most of my stuff done, so that’s really good. I also didn’t spend a huge amount of money, so I was pretty glad about that. I’ll possibly be getting a job at some point in the future, so that should be good.
We got flavorings at the bulk barn and they’re really good, Strawberry, Watermelon and Bubble Gum. Yeah, all kinds of awesome. Also it’s Emma’s birthday soon, So I think she’s excited about that.
Yeah, I really haven’t been up to much. Really. We did go to Aunt Boo’s recently, and that was really fun. I got to download music too, so I got the Across The Universe soundtrack and it’s pretty awesome. Hopefully we’ll be going back to Boo’s soon though, It’s pretty awesome there.Also Boo watches Moonlight so we were all YEAH! and discussing it. It was terribly amusing trying to explain it to Leroy (who I just found out has an xbox 360, I’ve always been to distracted by the pool table.)
The writers strike sucks. Pretty much everything I watch is on a break right now, And soon the season will be over for most of them (When they return in January), And Lost is starting up but I don’t think they have the whole season written/filmed yet. So that pretty much sucks.
Christmas should be good, Mam, Carl, Addison and Kaytlyn are all coming up, so there will hopefully be amusing stories.
Check it out: The chintendo vii. Do you think maybe they might’ve copied someone there…?
Oh and I am now swimming in macros, because on a community there I started a weekly macro post. I’ve gotten some really good ones, though. Feel free to check out my macro folder, but with a lot of macros, probably not child safe. Personal favorites are the one with the dog and the shoes, cliff edge, the lex luthor one, Well pretty much all of them. It’s pretty much all gold. Gives me so much lulz.
