holdouttrout: not your ordinary fish (Default)
[personal profile] holdouttrout
1. My roommate and I took an evening journey last Wednesday to the indoor hot tub. Things that made this journey interesting included: Locked and unresponsive gates that should be open, below-freezing temperatures, flip flops, and mud. Thankfully, neither of us lost shoes or toes permanently.

2. I keep having dreams that I'm sure you guys would find hilarious* and then being able to recall anything about them except that fact.

3. I saw Zero Dark Thirty and Les Miserables on Saturday. I liked them both, and ALMOST made it through Les Mis without crying. SO. CLOSE.

4. I made bread for the first time! Well, bread that wasn't Amish Friendship Bread, anyway. I use the quick no-knead bread recipe. It was easy and it turned out amazing. I may have to start doing that all the time.

5. I watched all of the Golden Globes last night. I don't think I've ever watched all of an awards show before, and I know it was partly because it was on live before primetime. Also partly because of Amy Poehler.

6. Yesterday I drove through a three-block radius in town which had the distinction of being the only place within miles with honest-to-goodness snow. It was almost like some little cloud passed over said, "Oh, bother this," and dumped the load it was carrying before disappearing into the clear blue winter sky.


*Not really. There are a few people who can tell entertaining stories about their dreams. I am not one of them.

I had no idea there was such a thing as no-knead bread. I used to make bread, but haven't done it in a while because it is so dang time consuming and makes a giant mess on my dining room table. How does this no-knead recipe go? :)

There is! Speedy No-Knead Bread (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/08/dining/081mrex.html?_r=0).

It still makes a bit of a mess, but it's well within my tolerance, so it really is just a BIT of mess.

See, that looks like I could maybe do it on my cutting board, rather than having to flour up a large surface. I will definitely try it! Thanks for the link.

#1 sounds like a less-than-enjoyable journey. Brr.

It was cold, and it would have been awful had we not actually managed to make it to the hot tub after many trials and tribulations.

Ohhh hot tub!

ALMOST made it through Les Mis without crying. SO. CLOSE.

This is why I have decided not to see it in the theater and instead get it on DVD once it's out. I do not like crying in front of people!!!

Also partly because of Amy Poehler.

Wasn't she and Tina Fey great? They killed it.

I don't mind a little bit of crying in the theater... as long as I can be okay by the time I have to leave.

Poehler and Fey totally killed it. :-)

LOL! weather is weird. once when my mom was a little girl, she was outside playing by herself. (kids could do that in those days) several neighbors called up her mother to say: "how can you let your kid play outside in the rain?" the response was: "what rain?" it was raining over every house except for that one.
