I love the smell of my basement and garage. Sometimes I go downstairs just to inhale the musty smell.
I'm also one of those people who has to have a fan on to sleep. I have a little portable fan I have to bring on vacations and to friends' houses so I can get sleep.
If I'm listening to music or watching TV while writing something, I start to write down what the song or the people on TV are saying.
I have to wipe my ass with baby wipes after I poop. I keep some in my purse for public bathrooms. If for some reason only toilet paper is available, I'll wipe with a baby wipe when I get home. Otherwise I feel unclean.
When I'm exiting out of a window on my phone with the little red phone button, I always press it like 4-5 times more than I actually need to, or else it feels like it might not be actually closed.
I always tap the car ceiling when I go through a yellow light.
When I write, I rest the pen or pencil on my ring finger instead of my middle. They tried to fix me in like 2nd grade but it didn't work.
On topic.. I was also in 4th grade, but at my elementary school, the teachers weren't allowed to mention anything. I remember lots of kids' parents came to get them but I didn't think much of it. When I got home, my mom and dad were there, and they usually worked late on Tuesdays so I knew something was up. I didn't find out exactly what happened until like 4 P.M. when my parents showed me on the news.
I'm a girl, and anytime I find out one of my friends has read a Twilight book, my respect for them drops greatly. The only girls I know who like them are socially awkward and typically don't shower. I would seriously question the sexuality of a guy who was a fan...
Well, the other cheap foods thread got me thinking about puppy chow. We have it all the time around here (it's so tasty!), but I had cousins over from PA and they had never tried it before.
So, I was wondering, pit, have you ever made puppy chow?
(The recipe, if anyone's curious:
3/4 cup peanut butter 1 cup chocolate chips 1/4 cup butter 8 cups Chex cereal 2 cups powdered sugar
Melt the peanut butter, chocolate chips, and butter together. Pour over the cereal in a large kettle or bowl and stir well. Pour the powdered sugar into a large brown paper bag and add the cereal. Fold the bag to seal and shake well to coat evenly.)
I dunno if you've ever made puppy chow before; we make it all the time around here, but I had cousins in from Pennsylvania and they'd never heard of it, so who knows.
Melt together peanut butter and chocolate chips in a bowl in the microwaves. Pour it onto a big bowl of Corn Chex. Mix it together so the Chex is covered. Then put everything into a big ziploc bag and dump powdered sugar in. Close the bag and shake it up until everything is covered with sugar. Put it in the fridge or let it cool, and then eat it. Effing amazing.
