I haven't done one of these in a while and I'm 1)tired, 2)a bit down, 3) headachy so here we go with a meme.


Bold the ones you have and use at least once a year, italicise the ones you have and don't use, strike through the ones you have had but got rid of, and colour the items you'd like to add to your kitchen arsenal:

I wonder how many... pasta machines, breadmakers, juicers, hand-held immersion blenders, stand blenders, stand mixers, deep fat fryers, egg boilers (I use a pan with water in it), melon ballers, sandwich makers, pastry brushes, cheese knives, cheese domes, electric woks, salad spinners, griddle pans, jam funnels, meat thermometers, filleting knives, cleavers, mortar & pestles, egg poachers, cake stands,(which doubles as a punch bowl) garlic presses, garlic keeper jars, margarita glasses, tea strainers, bamboo steamers, pizza stones,(mine broke) pizza peels, coffee (spice) grinders,(need 2 - don't use the same one on coffee that ya do on spices) milk frothers , piping bags, banana stands, fluted pastry wheels, tagine dishes, conical strainers, rice cookers, steam cookers, pressure cookers, slow cookers, spaetzle makers , waffle makers, cookie presses, gravy strainers, double boilers, sukiyaki stoves, food processors, (I really miss my big one though) ice cream makers, takoyaki makers, fondue sets, soda water chargers, and mandolines ...languish dustily at the back of the nation's cupboards.

(Several on here I want, but I don't know how to color stuff.) WANT a juicer, a good pressure cooker, a waffle iron and a soda water charger. WTH is a pizza peeler?

And to be OCD about it, the jam funnel should be put with the conical strainer because they're used together and YES, I use those.

The one funny old non-mechanical tool I have and have come to live is the egg slicer tool I inherited from my Mom. I use it a lot since I broke a modern plastic one 'cause I slice lots of eggs while making the cats' food. It looks like the all-metal one at the top of this image:

You Are 68% Lady

I took this quiz straight, really I did!



You Are Miss Piggy



A total princess and diva, you're totally in charge - even if people don't know it.

You want to be loved, adored, and worshiped. And you won't settle for anything less.

You're going to be a total star, and you won't let any of the "little people" get in your way.

Just remember, piggy, never eat more than you can lift!

Here's how it works: You comment with a question for me. Any question will do. The question is screened. Later, I will post to answer your question. The answer is not screened. It's sort of like those last few words of the advice column, in which the columnist writes something like "To O.D.D. in Baltimore: Longways will fit; sideways will not", and so on. Want to play? Post a question below.

Huh...

And it didn't even ask my birth date!



You Look Like a Leo



It's likely that you have great hair. No matter what the style is, it's the first thing people notice about you.

Your hair tends to be a great color naturally, and it's likely you even get highlights from the sun.



Overall, your body is slim and graceful. You seem comfortable in your skin.

Your body is well proportioned. No part of you is unusually big or smile.



Like most Leo people, you are probably lively, interesting, and fun loving.

You are a good friend. You are naturally generous and hospitable.



On another note, FINALLY got the address labels merged and printed and the return labels printed. MUCH easier way to do 150+ holiday cards! Hopefully, I'll be able to get them out in the next couple of days!

The [facebook] Life Experience Test )

As usual, a test like this should be re-written by a real adult. Some of the questions, really! "Have you ever fallen asleep in class" ye gods....

Not sure I agree with it but it's a cool meme.

Your result for What's your key signature?...

E-Flat Major

Three flats, honky cat.

Congratulations, you’re E-flat Major, a key to swing in. This key is THE key if you play jazz saxophone, making it a very popular key among jazzophiles. You know those stupid radio commercials you hear for “smoooooth jazz radio; KKUZ” or whatever? There’s a damn good chance that the music behind that commercial is in E-flat. Pianos and woodwinds are pretty fine with this key as well, guitars and basses being a bit left out. Who needs rock when you’re swingin’, though?


You are one loose hip dude, my friend. You take life as it comes, and you can take a beating with a smile and move along. Life is just one swinging song after another, and most of us would kill to have the suave attitude you do. But between you and us, carpe diem isn’t really THAT bad of an idea.


SONG EXAMPLE: Spiral by John Coltrane


INTERESTING TIDBIT:


* Actually, I could’ve named almost all the songs from Coltrane’s great Giant Steps album, a good half the songs are either in E-flat or its parallel minor, C Minor.

On that note (haha, I'm so funny) I'm damned tired from sanding the chair today. Ye gods, that is work. And Bruce works from home tomorrow which means sleeping in a bit. Yay.
rowangolightly: (Grania!)
Actually, I'm beading...but I am Irish. And the upholstery is all off the chair, thanks to Bruce's help when he got home. I'd forgotten how much of that stuff he'd done as a kid; his mother used to do re-upholstery. So tomorrow I'll start sanding.

how Irish am I? )

Actually, I cheated and looked some of it up but primarily a lot of it I know from doing research on some of the songs that we do.
