I saw a commercial for this and thought to myself “Oh this sounds like a good idea. Maybe with this stuff I won’t have to use sensitive toothpaste everyday?” I was wrong, so very very wrong!
Do you like using AJAX bathroom cleaner? How about using it in your mouth? Do you like involuntarily triggering your gag reflex while brushing your teeth? Well then this toothpaste is for you!
If you do decide to torture yourself with this toothpaste then I suggest using a very SMALL amount of it. Using a normal sized amount is going to make you feel like you just started some awful internet challenge!
I’m posting this over a week late. Meh!
I drew a piece of broccoli on this one since its one of the few vegetables everyone in my house can agree on. I love how it’s leafy eyebrows turned out!
A lot has changed in the past couple of weeks. The Man is back to work but still recovering from his herniated disk, the kids both learnt how to ride their bikes with no training wheels and make their own breakfast, and I got a major batch of RFQ’s out to my suppliers at work. I feel like a huge weight has lifted and I can slack off a little AND finally sleep in (it only took 7 years). PHEW!!
In other news, I’m on Google+ and for some bizarre reason all of a sudden people are circling me at a way higher rate than usual. 3000 people had me circled about two weeks ago and it’s shot way up to over 12,500. I don’t know what witchcraft is happening here but now I’ve felt compelled to start posting publicly which I rarely do.
I haven’t been posting publicly cause I’m a control freak who uses Google+ as an escape, news source and way to connect with like minds and I didn’t want that sullied with people who were just going to be there to start shit. So far everyone has been very pleasant though which is a nice surprise. This sudden jump does seem to line up with me posting a lot of dick jokes lately though. I’ve been dubbed “The Queen of Peen” which is both hilarious and sad. Maybe I should stop posting dick jokes?!?!
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a meal plan because, well, it’s been awhile since I’ve done a meal plan I felt was worth posting. A lot of crazy shit has been going down, but most recently The Man has totally fucked up his back. I’ve also been dealing with burn out and have been slacking on pretty much everything, well as many things as possible.
I had a major project ramp up to deal with and that piled on top of my regular grind started me on shutdown mode. I went on with just basic function and I let a lot of stuff slip…a LOT! So now I’m trying to pick up the pieces again and a blog post seemed fitting to highlight inspiration striking on the meal plan. There is a few things on here we haven’t done before and a few we haven’t done in awhile so this week will be a nice change from all the boxed shit we’ve been sustaining ourselves on.
I celebrated with fried chicken. I know, me and hot oil should never do business together but I somehow pulled it off tonight and didn’t even 3rd degree burn myself. Yay me!
Recipes I’m busting out for this week include:
This week the little one wanted to do the meal plan drawing. Beaner is our stupid little dog. I’d like to think in this situation my kid has drawn here that someone has maybe eaten her. Perhaps it was my friend Mr. Chua? I’ve been told he eats the occasional dog…well he told me that. Don’t judge, he lives in China.
If you look closely Saturday consists of “Big Ass Ham” which wasn’t planned (well nothing was really since it was TBD so I guess that works out). The grocery store I usually shop at occasionally gives strange “gifts” if you spend an obscene amount of money with them. So this week I wound up spending an obscene amount of money and carting home a massive ham. For a family of 4 this is an over abundance of ham! What can one do with so much ham? It’s going to be my experiment for next week I think. Ham in everything!
Also to the left you can kind of see The Man’s experient with aquaponics. It’s a fishbowl full of snails with a netpot and some boston leaf lettuce in there. At first he had tried strawberries with a fighting fish, both died, it was a sad day. The lettuce is doing better but with us eating it it’s probably not going to last very long.
This week I apparently came across an “old” viral video on Google+ that shows a zombie squid. A dead squid reanimated with simple soy sauce (see video below). The “dancing squid” in this particular video footage was filmed in Hakodate in Hokkaido, Japan where it’s apparently quite a popular dish. It’s both fascinating and horrifying to me and so it’s made it onto this weeks meal plan…sort of. I’m not bringing home squid for dinner but people eat this and so it’s this weeks doodle (I’ve run out of the usual animals we eat and have moved on to unconventional ones…horse I’m looking at you for next week!). I’m not sure if I’d try it. I mean one of my bucket list items is “to eat some of every animal” but I think I may have already tried squid in some way shape or form so maybe I’ll pass on this one.
In other news I’m meeting with the head of another department at my office today to give him all my ideas (well maybe not all) on one of the projects in his department. I’m hoping this meeting helps expand my role at my office and so it’s pretty important to me…so what do I do this morning? Leave my fucking folder at home with all my notes! Smooth move exlax *facepalm*. I’m a bit of a wizard though and know i’ll be able to pull my shit together by the time I meet with him at 11. Wish me luck!
Have you ever forgot something important and still pulled it off? Toot your horn in the comments!
