One Hundred Posts!!!

     This is my 100th post! That happened really fast! I was hoping to do something epic, but I’ll just be going back to my roots: hiking and EATING!

It was beautiful and overcast the entire day!
We had a nice chilly hour-long hike.
The Monstas are back! This one had 6 cups of spinach, 1/4 of a cup of soymilk, 1/2 of a frozen banana, 2 stalks of asparagus and 1/4 of a cup of frozen blueberries.
For lunch today, I went to a local cafe with the roommate and we split a tuna sandwich on toasted rye with a side of potato salad and a piece of dry watermelon that I didn’t touch.
Our lovely lunch needed to be rounded out with chocolate. I had the most ridiculously thick, chocolatel-y brownie I’ve ever had in my entire life, and my roommate got a hot cafe mocha.
     I went over to my parental unit’s to meet up with my mom for our Tuesday pottery class :)!
Tonight was glazing! I glazed five pieces and spent the rest of the time trimming one for MY ONLY CONTEST WINNER so far!
There you go, Amanda and Andy! It should be glazed and fired in about 2 or 3 weeks 🙂
My mom hand painted/glazed this! She’s so talented!
I’m not quite as talented. I think they put that sign up after I joined class…
     After class, we started heading home but I was distracted by the beautiful bright lights of this place!

BURGERS!!!! This magical land is called Five Guys Burgers and Fries. The lights have a gravitational pull. I tried to avoid it, but I have no control over scientific facts! GRAVITATIONAL PULL!
Hello baby cheeseburger and fries! These fries are awesome! They’re made from actual potatoes with the skins on – magic!
     Here’s something new: I tried to make one of those chocolate-cakes-in-a-mug two nights ago. How did it turn out, you ask? Here’s a little photo essay for you.
Looks good so far!
Puffing up, just like it’s supposed to!
And it turned into a baseball. Just like it’s… supposed to?
Yeah, this was a big fail. I microwaved it way too long and it was very dry and tasted like cocoa-scented dirt. I do not recommend.

    Post-class, it was pilot night! We watched a new pilot that I was in for – “Raising Hope” – I was up for the role that went to Bijou Phillips. Hilarious show! I hope it gets the viewers and ratings it deserves!
For you guys who haven’t entered to win the last two pieces of pottery, all you have to do is leave a comment on my blog about why you need a piece of pottery, then put a link to my blog on your Twitter!

    I need a piece of pottery, so I can put some homemade soup in there. The recipe calls for one of Becki's Handmade Bowls and I currently don't have that! 🙁

    I also posted a link to your blog via Twitter. 🙂

    Dear Senorita McBeckington,

    I am in need of a spittoon; I often expend my oral fluids and the resulting debris is sullying my floorspace in a manner most improper.

    I also don't have a chamber pot.

    A bowl- or mug-like ceramic implement, crafted by whom must surely be the most gifted of clay-maidens, for use in either capacity, would shrug these old shoulders of their liquid woes.

    In eternitude,
    Chancellor Malachinius Rempenton of the Cityfolk

    Post-Script: I searched hither and thither for your confounded Twaddler and was unable to procure one, despite delivering a sound verbal, physical, and philosophical thrashing to the many street-urchins I encountered in my travels who were foolish enough to offer their services.

    As such, I trust that tattooing your Twonkster onto my favourite hunting hound and sending him into lunar orbit will suffice for advertisement of your bulletain.

    Congrats on the 100th post! 😀

    I didn't know we had a Five Guys out here!! I hear their burgers and fries are awesome!

    Never tried one of those "mug cakes" but I tend to ALWAYS over-cook things in the microwave– just the other night I burned a piece of chocolate I was trying to melt! I think I'll stay away from microwave recipes for now…

    YAY! I am so excited about the pottery!

    I seriously need to try 5 guys asap.

    @Malachi Rempen
    You're ridiculous and amazing. HOWEVER, my pottery shall not have any bodily excretions placed into it. You may have just forfeit your chances…. maybe…

    @the actor's diet
    I wouldn't say Five Guys burgers themselves are exceptional, but the buns make it the amazingness that it is!

    @Megan @ Healthy Hoggin'
    I agree about the microwaves. Now that it's getting colder, oven baking can come back!
    And their fries are EPIC!

    You really should! I almost wish I hadn't opened that door – now I really want it again!
