Balsamic Winter Throw Together Bake
What a bloody stupid name for a recipe. No one is even going to look at this recipe because of my lack of creativity. But there are too many ingredients to make a good title up. It’s like a fancy Starbucks drink. So many ingredients, so many terms, so many fancy/stupid ways to say it. I thought about trying to be a fancy chef and make up my own words to make it sound cooler than it actually is….then I remembered I’m not a chef, nor do I know big words that would be useful in this situation. So, you get what you get. If you don’t try this, I pity you. It’s delicious. Btw, cool me saying bloody all the time. Jason says it so I guess I’m just trying to be cool like him. And failing. Way.to.go.JB. Way to go.
So I made a rookie mistake the other day. I ate sh*t on my 2nd of 80 box jumps. I, of course, was trying to keep up with Jason and stopped using my brain for that split second and lost the first two layers of skin on my shin in the process. It’s not deep at all, I’ve definitely had worse, when I was a newbie to the good ole’ box jump. But at this point I’ve learned to use my legs, and figured out that you have to lift them high to get on top of the box. Sexual innuendos are everywhere in that last sentence. Kind of. Ew. Anywho, I let my fall slow down my time. Disappointing.
I bought a dudes deodorant today. Not bought it off of a dude, like it was made for males, so I was thinking it would be stronger for my sweating issues. It’s not. I still sweat a balls ton. No matter what. BUT, in turn, I smell like a dude. And since I’m single, that’s pretty awesome. I love how dudes smell when they smell good. If I’m down at all, all I have to do is smell my armpits and I’m in man heaven. Wicked.
I’m sitting on the floor of my living room, indian style. And I just found a chocolate chip on the carpet. Yes, I did eat it.Print
