Today was a very active day. I actually went to three different supermarkets today, along with various errands and class. I may actually be addicted to food shopping. I swear a get a hard on when I look at fresh fruit. It's a problem. I went to Harris Teeter this morning.. followed by the Vegetable Bin this afternoon, and eventually Whole Foods in Mount Pleasant. I bought two different types of pears, a bag of golden delicious apples, coconut, bananas, and several other random fruits. I can't help myself. Maybe they have a support group for fruit addiction. Fruit Addicts Anonymous? So what if I sit in my film class and daydream about baking a rustic apple tart. If you fault me for that then you can't have any of my baked goods.

Tomorrow night Sarah and I are going to an oyster roast... already bought myself a nice bottle of sauvignon blanc to bring.

Friday night we're having a little Prosecco & Pizza dinner party. There is nothing I love more than making pizza from scratch.... maybe even throwing it on the grill. Psyched.

Here's a video I enjoy showing anyone who decides to come over after last call. It's disturbing and I like it.


"-Hear is not the right word. I became a telephone. Edith was the electrical conversation that went through me.
-Well, what was it, what was it?
-Ordinary eternal machinery.
-Ordinary eternal machinery.
-Is that all you are going to say?
-Ordinary eternal machinery like the grinding of the stars.
-That’s better.
-That was a distortion of the truth which, I see, suits you very well. I distorted the truth to make it easier for you. The truth is: ordinary eternal machinery."

Something about this Wednesday feels off. I'm on edge. I haven't been sleeping unless I've been drinking all night. I guess I should post a recipe.. I did make some pretty scrumptious jalapeno cheddar cornbread the other night, but forgot to take pictures. here's the recipe anyway just for the hell of it:

Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread:

1 cup corn meal
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1/8 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon celtic sea salt
1 cup buttermilk
2 large eggs, beaten
8 tablespoons earth balance, melted
6 ounces (113 g) extra sharp cheddar, grated
2 large jalapeno peppers diced

Preheat the oven to 375F. Spray a 9inch nonstick cake pan or springform pan with cooking spray.

In one bowl, add the first 5 ingredients and stir. Make a little opening in the flour mixture and pour in the buttermilk, eggs, and earth balance. Stir until combined. Fold in the cheddar and diced jalapenos.

Pour into the pan and bake for 35-38 minutes. Enjoy.


Today is my birthday and I feel like a grown up! I'm sitting on my couch icing my knee because I guess I was dancing too hard last night.. ha ha.. Like that's even possible! Sarah and I found a DJ blasting some dirty electro.. pretty much everything I have on my iPod, and I couldn't have been happier.

They even played Oh! by Boys Noize.. The A-trak remix... I was in heaven. Sarah made me a beautiful vegan chocolate strawberry ice cream cake with chocolate ganache frosting. I can't wait to devour it later.
