“If you knew someone you loved would be outside in the cold for a very long time and would not be allowed to wear mittens, you would give them the warmest jacket you could find. Because when someone you love is going through a tough time out of your control, what they need from you is a warm, caring, sweet attitude, not a constant reminder of how cold their fingers must be.”

obligatory top chef post


hahaha.  glad/sad that fabio is gone.  i guess the time for fun and games is now OVER

gotta say, i love Blaise.. high-falutin', plays fair, works hard, Blaise.  he's gonna get owned.
don't love Angelo. he's sneaky.  he oversneaked my love (forgot his name but bought a similar hat) ... SPIKE!
plus he talks like a weirdo.


but ultimately, the point of my post is this:  even though Dale has a crappitude and just bugs me in general, but this is hilarious:  "You know what?  I almost got eliminated today but it means nothing cause i'm here and i'm gonna kill it on this next one.  I'm gonna wear that championship belt around my waist.  And i'm not like these new school parents who are like "we're all winners" **** that.  that's buuulll *** man.  Who the *** said losing's okay?  Like, in what country is that cool?"

I know, profane.  but hilarious.

Mike and Carla WOULD like sesame street. -_-

currently going through my head

the reason i'm having a tough time budgeting is b/c i'm trying to live like a rich bay area person on a poor bay area person's income

i get mad when people mess something up for me because I don't just want an apology, I want them to fix it.

In general, I get frustrated when something is "not right": why can't someone fix it?

i don't understand myself sometimes, so then, i try to ignore myself, until i can't. and then it's back to square 1.

it's hard to make objective decisions when matters get personal.

i don't know why i save cards and letters...  i just do.

i've been yelping regularly now, and it's just made me more critical.  why can't I have a 5-star experience anywhere?

in 2 weeks i'll know something about at least 1 school.

i still have lots of little things to do.. and that's why it's both gratifying and frustrating at the same time when i finish an item off my list.

my laptop sounds like an airplane and randomly crashes.  but i don't want a new one b/c i'm loving how it's working otherwise...

the more i use windows 7, the more pro-pc i become. wow; that sounds so .. what's that WORD?

i'll be back.

Nutella Cookies: A Hoonz Original

So, I was initially going to bake chocolate-nutella cookies... but it looked complicated and I didn't want to deal with an excess amount of ingredients.  So, i decided to go to and find their hottest nutella cookie recipe and go from there!


Really baking world?  Nobody had a simple ole nutella cookie recipe?

Thus I decided to invent my own.

I found a good peanut-butter cookie recipe, tweaked it (less sugar etc), and tada!!!!!

My own cookie recipe:

Except, is dang complicated and i can't figure out how to edit parts.

Also, I think I need a digital camera.  But i've done so well (almost a full year) without one!
