Really, Victoria's Secret? Really?

She should get that hip bone looked at! Her waist has a severe case of AirBrushitis!!!

Either that or those bracelets are really strong!

And yet, I still looked at her and thought, "I would get a belly chain if I had that belly."

Of course, than I thought, "No, I wouldn't" and had some ice cream.

So Tired. Brain Dead.

I Have Been Editing, Kids!

Maybe you were there and forgot. Maybe you didn't know me when I did my one-woman show. Maybe you have never been forced by a drunken me to watch it when I only had it on DVD!? In any case- a little Sunday morning clip of ME for YOU! Enjoy!
...and not just ME- this video also has Matthew Kelty, Elizabeth Gutterman & Ray Fritz as backup dancers and the AMAZING Michael Forman on piano!

Enough Already!!

I was relatively irked when Dora grew up and clearly, explored her weight loss options. I was more than slightly annoyed when it was apparent that Strawberry Shortcake and her lady friends had spent the 90s in a fat camp as they are considerable thinner in their new incarnation. I was I am downright ticked off to hear that Cookie Monster is now saddled with the misnomer "cookie" as he eats veggies now!

But color me pissed, people! Introduced at the 2011 Toy Fair... A SLIMMER MR POTATO HEAD?!?!? Give me a cluckin' break. Are kids really taking their fitness clues from a cluckin' potato?! I say NAY!! NAY, I say!!! Ridonkulous. I want nothing to do with it.

Speaking of Ninja Style!

I realized today that I had LOTS of sneak attack pics on my phone! This is Coco. She is waiting for a squirrel. She sits there for the ENTIRE time we are at the park- unless her Mom lifts her to see in the hole. Not even kidding.
Panera Bathroom.
And given how many teens were there- it was either a bad day or a VERY bad day!
More than just a parking rule...
I like chocolate. I like wine. In one bottle? Yeah. No.
At The Rock gym in Astoria. Does NOT make me wanna tan.

OPP- The 2Grand11 Edition!

OPP how can I explain it? I'll take you frame by frame it

As we have been buried under miles of snow for what feels like years, one could barely find anything to begrudge- though I will admit to several bouts of snow blower envy! But now that spring has sprung (fingers crossed) and the snow has melted, I find myself getting a little jeal-ly! And so, in our first O.P.P. post of 2grand11, I give you this...

It is kinda hard to see- as OPP pics are taken ninja style with my cell but while my terra cotta pots were coming apart under the weight of the snow, these super smart MacGyver type folks had a ghetto green house protecting their shit! There are already tomatoes in there, people!! They could have fried green tomatoes for breakfast! (sauce in a couple o' weeks) Flowers are blooming, green is the color of their plants AND my envy, WOW!!!

Take note, Diamond Don- project 876 when you come to play Fix It at the BFG Apartment!

Oh. My. Waffle.

So, I met my new friend, Cas at a show we were both on. We both spoke of food and Italians and Italian food and family. And then we ate together. It was as if we shared a brain. Or a stomach...

Recently, Cas- who has a food blog- did an experiment involving random foods and a waffle iron. That's right, people- he made all sorts of food on a waffle iron!!! Find his recipes HERE! But he had me at the very first one he mentioned... Red Velvet Waffles. Sure, he made them with a simple cream cheese frosting and I went for buttercream. And sure, I have no business making myself a plate full of cake based waffles. But DAMN! These were friggin' good!!


1 Box DUNCAN HINES Moist Delicious Red Velvet Cake mix

3 Large eggs

1/2 Cup butter, melted

3/4 Cup + 2 Tbsp. Water

Mix all the ingredients EXCEPT the 2 Tbsp. water until well blended. If you feel the batter is too stiff at this stage, add 1 Tbsp. of the additional water, and the second if necessary. The day’s humidity may have an effect.

BEAT the batter on high speed for 2 minutes until smooth and velvety.

HOT WAFFLE IRON set or timed to just under maximum wellness. Again, leave room for spread because this batter will rise quite a bit (leave a quarter inch from edges and don’t pile it too high before closing the lid.

When you open, let steam escape for a good minute before trying to remove it from the griddle. During the cool time here, cut the wedges at the seams for easier removal, and gently transfer to serving plate.

These MUST be frosted, and you MUST try the following:


1/4 Cup butter, at room temp

1/2 Cup (4 oz., or half a brick) regular (not whipped) cream cheese

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/4 tsp. salt

3/4 Cup confectioners sugar

Whip the butter and cream cheese together until smooth, then add the salt and vanilla, scrape down the sides of the bowl, and beat on high for about a minute until completely smooth.

Add the confectioners sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, fully incorporating each addition. Once all sugar is in, whip the frosting on high for a minute until fluffy.

I Like Old Pictures.

This is Grandma Celice. In addition to liking her name an awful lot- I think she & I would have gotten along! The blouse? The gloves? Bracelet AND clutch? Pure Sass!
Is it just me or does Uncle Ben look like he will be killing everyone in this picture later?
As I know the spawn of these people- I know he didn't take out all of them!!
Old pictures are fun!
