Anytime you go in or out a door you must pause at the threshold and contemplate whether you deign go through that door. You must do this until a much larger being is… These are all SO TRUE. Cats are horrible creatures (but also the best).
I only like Sunday if I'm terribly hungover.

mollylambert: First. Make up your mind to be happy. Happiness is largely a matter of self-hypnotism. You can think yourself happy or you can think yourself miserable. It is up to you. Learn to find pleasure in simple things. If you can’t go to the opera, you can turn on the radio. Nail on your face the…

It took me about two months to get over the caffeine withdrawal when I stopped drinking coffee. I wonder how long it’d take to beat this. I don’t think I’ll ever know.

And it was some of the most fun I’ve had in the kitchen. It reminded me a bit of when I made a pie in my middle school home ec class. SO I’ve decided that I am going to give pie making a shot. I’m pretty excited.

I want to learn more about the science of baking
Since I am hopeless at baking but would like to be able to learn from my mistakes. This whole trial and error thing would be a lot more meaningful if I could understand what was going on.

That being said, I also don’t understand the Lent thing. Every year I have to listen to people complain about missing whatever stupid and pointless thing they’ve given up. TV? Soda? Oh yeah, that’s making a real sacrifice. I would love to see the people who do Lent participate in Ramadan.
