Today was actually incredibly productive. I dropped by Fabric Warehouse, Haberman’s and Joann’s and finally bought fabric for my Apparel Production 1 class which cost about $100 total. It was a nice little adventure to get out of the house. Then I came home and made the halfscale skirts for Fashion Design 2 and thought about doing the sketches for AP1, but I got sidetracked and ended up cleaning out my closet, vacuuming (finally!) and putting clothes back into my closet/Ikea boxes. Now my room looks 7x cleaner than before. And there’s room to set stuff down in the cubbies in my bookcases/dressers.
That said and done, I started watching Hello, Dolly! on Netflix but then my mom came in my room and said An Idiot Abroad was on so I was like maaaan, that’s why I started watching Hello, Dolly! Because I knew An Idiot Abroad’s new episode was on at 10, but they were having a recap from last week, so I watched that episode with my mom, then an episode of Ancient Aliens, and finally to new episode of An Idiot Abroad. Which was hilarious, regardless of the fact that it wasn’t a normal episode. Ricky finally had Karl get a prostrate examination and he was hidden camera watching/listening in on the procedure and giggling the whole time. I laughed so hard. I love Ricky Gervais so damn much.
Lastly, I promised a picture of the pumpkin pastry last night, so here it is!
So besides finishing up season 2 of Felicity (which I will discuss in a bit) I also decided to make some tortilla personal pizzas! And I chronicled the process so I can share it with you guys!
Here is the “recipe” for my tortilla personal pizzas:
– 2 tortillas (I used spinach tortillas)
– choice of cheese (I used Havarti)
– 3 slices of turkey bacon, chopped
– 1/5 of a bell pepper, thinly chopped
– 1/4 onion, thinly sliced
– 8 pineapple chunks, cubed in 3rds
(Or, you can put whatever you want on your pizza.)
– Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
– Follow the below step by step pictures.
– Bake for approximately 20-25 minutes, or until cheese starts looking cooked (but don’t overcook the tortillas!)
Step 1: Cover your tortillas with choice of cheese.
Step 2: Chop up your toppings.
Step 3: Take eyegasmic pictures of your toppings. Okay, I'm kidding. If you're using pineapple on your pizzas, it's easier if you chop up the cubes into 3rds.
Step 4: Pop those bitches in the oven for 20-25 minutes at 375. Take them out when they look pretty cooked and let cool for about 5 minutes before you slice them up and enjoy!
They turned out quite delicious, although the spinach tortillas kinda threw off the flavor. They’re a little strange tasting sometimes, not gonna lie. You gotta find the right foods to eat them with.
Anyway, so I watched the last 4 episodes of season 2 of Felicity today. I was so happy Felicity and Ben got back together! And in the last episode they finally had sex. I was like JESUS CHRIST THANK GOD. There was so much built up sexual tension between everyone this season that all the sexualness that happened in the last 4 episodes was just good for everybody involved. This show just again and again reminds me of myself and of my life. It’s so damn good, I feel everybody who didn’t watch it when it was one should get Netflix and watch it now. It’s so good I can feel it on my tongue!
And now it’s time to watch An Idiot Abroad: The Bucket List. Good night blogosphere!
Yesterday and today have been (surprisingly) productive days. I’m actually really proud of myself and somewhat wonder why it’s so hard for me to focus on school work so intently when it’s not finals or midterms. But of course, the answer is “it’s not finals or midterms.”
Anyway, I finished my design board for fashion design class and it looks fabulous! I also finished my paper for cultural diversity class with the helpful input of my best friend who threw a different perspective on it. (And that is why it’s good to ask for help.) So to reward myself, I watched 4 episodes of Felicity today. The first 3 were after the design board because I needed a break to recooperate and organize my thoughts in preparation for the paper. The 4th was afterwards – followed by the first episode of Blue Mountain State because I only had half an hour before An Idiot Abroad: The Bucket List.
But back to Felicity – last night I watched an episode as well and it was super ironic because it was the Halloween episode where Felicity goes as the bride of Frankenstein. Anyway, there’s this scene where Felicity’s drunk off her rocker and she catches Ben mackin’ all over this blonde bitch who is QUITE IRONICALLY dressed as the fucking PINK POWER RANGER. I was loling off the couch at that point. Also, in the last episode I watched, we finally met Noel’s girlfriend, Hanna. Who happens to be played by JENNIFER GARNER. I was like =O oh amusement. But it gets better. Ben caught Felicity and Noel mackin’ all over each other in this episode and he was like O_O and walked out, unnoticed. This show is so good. I can’t believe I used to hate it. I’m a jerk hahaha.
This is the Thanksgiving episode where Ben catches Felicity and Noel kissing.
As I mentioned earlier, I also watched the first episode of Blue Mountain State. In comparison to Felicity, this how is definitely a 2000s show. And by that I mean, I could feel my brain cells popping watching it. However, it was quite hilarious and I did laugh out loud often enough that I’ll probably continue watching it. The best part was at the end of the episode when they had the cookie race hazing consisting of running across the football field in only a jockstrap and an oreo between their buttcheeks, and Thad, the douchebag quarterback participated because the couches were in the stands and one of them asks “Why is Thad doing this?” and the other one goes “Dedication.” I died.
I’m pretty excited right now cause in 15 minutes, An Idiot Abroad: The Bucket List is premiering and if you haven’t seen the original An Idiot Abroad, I highly urge you to watch this show. You will laugh out loud. It’s a Ricky Gervais project. He sends his friend Carl around the world and has him taped as he complains about everything. Which sounds whiny, but it’s fucking hilarious because the guy goes to places like Cairo and The Great Wall of China and the magnificence of it all that would make a normal person be like “HOLY HORSE TESTICLES, THIS IS AWESOME!” completely blows over Carl’s head. Plus, the commercials promoting tonight’s episode are UPROARIOUS. And by that I mean Ricky screaming about prostrate examinations makes me LOL.
Speaking of television, I started watching the movie Lambada on Netflix, got 10 minutes in, and decided it was too lame to watch. So I started watching Felicity – which I’d always been under the impression was a show about a working class lady. I was surprised to learn it’s about a college student who followed her high school crush to New York on a complete whim. The first two episodes were good enough for me to continue to watch it when I have time. Plus, THE PINK RANGER FROM THE MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS MOVIE PLAYS IN THE SHOW.
The cherry on top was my day was neither of the above, but rather the chance find I happened upon at Meijer today. I’ve been wanting to read John Green‘s new book, The Fault In Our Stars since I heard it had come out, so I thought I’d go check out Meijer’s books to see if I could find any copies. Lo and behold, I found ONE SINGLE COPY left – BUT IT GETS BETTER. It had a yellow sticker on the front that said “SIGNED COPY” so I checked the first few pages, and IT IS INDEED HAND-SIGNED BY JOHN GREEN. I checked to see if it’s real, and it is because the green Sharpie he used bled to the other side.
I tweeted this at John too!
When I got home, I sketched out my designs for fashion design class and began rendering them in Photoshop – which has become a colossal pain my ass. Just sayin’. But I think I might continue with it.
Now it’s time for An Idiot Abroad, cheers!
