      has anyone seen the infomercial for "the almighty cleanse"?

      i felt like i was being punished when i woke up to it this morning...

      the fact that a grown man could talk about fecal matter that matter of factly for an entire hour
      not to mention the fact that he could go on t.v. and mention that his product "allowed him to pass a nest of worms" and expect anyone to buy his product is beyond me.

      if you've seen this, could you please explain to me why anyone would buy this stuff?
      would you buy this stuff?
      i sure as hell would run in the other direction if someone offered me "the almighty cleanse"

      about 2 years ago my friend alexis and i cooked for a party at my friend Paul's house.
      for dessert we made carrot cake cup cakes, and to transport them to the party i brought 2 12 count muffin pans to the house.
      during the course of the party i got pretty drunk and forgot to bring them home with me at the end of the night.
      i kinda forgot about the muffin pans for a couple of weeks, but eventually reminded Paul that i needed them back.
      he said no problem and put them in his trunk so he could give them to me the next time we saw each other.
      months past... and i inquied about them again, and Paul told me he thought he had given them back to me. it had been such a long time that i kinda believed him and didn't think twice about it because i never use them and didn't bother to check.
      eventually a year and a half passed, and Paul moved away to Tenessee and the issue had been dropped.
      this last march my mom went on a massive search of the house trying to find said muffin pans and i looked with her because i was sure i had gotten them back. i thought maybe they were in my car or i had moved them into a weird spot... but they were nowhere to be found.
      Paul came home two weeks ago for summer vacation and on Monday i called him and asked him to look one more time to see if he infact still had them somewhere around his house. he said he would look, but was pretty sure he had given them back to me.
      fast forward to last night... i see him at my friend's show and he says he has something to tell me about them muffin pans, but is afraid to tell me in person cause i might be mad. i force him to tell me because i want to see if i need to replace them and fess up to my mom that i had lost them.
      he proceeds to tell me that while he was in Tenessee he got into a car accident and his car was totaled.
      the car was towed away and crushed into a cube with my muffin pans still in the trunk....
      mystery solved.

      finals started today.
      i had my first class at 8:00... so i woke up at 5:45.
      i wanted to die.
      i had intended to go to bed at 10:30 last night, but instead spent the night trying to bail my friend out of jail.
      ready for this?
      he got arrested and charged with felony threatening because he tried to kick his cheating girlfriend out of the house and she got pissed and called the cops, telling them that he had threatened to beat her up, lied about him being drunk, and had him arrested.
      his bail you ask? $50,000
      what's the best part? he has to miss the entire week of finals, effectively forcing him to fail the term and retake it (each term costs $4,000), and it's his birthday today! HOORAY!

      ladies (and gentlemen), please be careful when calling the police on people. you might get more than you bargained for.

      in other news.... if anyone ever offers you a chicken galantine, run for your fucking life. it's chicken mousse stuffed into a boned chicken, poached and then covered in a weird chicken jello thing, with carrot, spinach, and mushrooms stuffed into it. and it looked something like this.

      so, it's been a long time since i've made a journal. why? i guess i just haven't felt like i've had anything to say.
      i'm sorry i've been neglecting a lot of you. i go through those cycles where just don't think i have anything to contribute.
      i guess i still kinda feel that way but i wanted to make a journal anyway.
      thanks for stopping by...

      i just ate like 8 chocolate covered macadamia nuts and i feel sick... bleh.
      that's actually the first thing i've eaten all day... unless you count two bites of pate.
      how do you feel about pate? have you ever even had it?
      i would reccomend everyone trying it at least once... it's pretty damn good.
      speaking of trying interesting things, i went to this store yesterday.. it was called "the cheese store of beverly hills"
      i literally ate 17 different types of cheese, 4 different kinds of olives, panchetta, countless pieces of toast and tons of olive oil. i walked out of there feeling about 800 pounds. there were people that had wine with all that cheese... i think i would have vomited half way through if i had even attempted to do that. it was cool though. i did feel like a GIANT dork walking through beverly hills in houndstooth pants and a not-so-unconspicuous white jacket. LAME. someone even had the nerve to ask me if i was LOST. wtf... stupid lady.

      anyway, i just really wanted to post about what we did on monday in class.
      it was intense.... and it was this:

      pix050106_2.jpg
      pix050106_3.jpg
      pix050106_4.jpg

      poor piggy. the cutting off of the head was the part that really got me... especially when i saw the bullet hole in it's head. and then i had to make sausage out of it.. and then i forgot what i had witnessed and ate some of the sausage and then i felt incredibly guilty. my chef made a terrible joke about how every part of the pig can be used, and at slaughter, the only thing that escapes is the squeal. LAME. sad... sad... sad...
      one girl was in TEARS because she had a pet pig. i guess if we were cutting up a cat and making it into pate i'd be pretty bummed out too.
      how do you feel about that? could you eat something if you had looked into it's face? i had a very hard time.

      how's everyone doing? i miss you guys. <3

      how does this sound:

      spice cake topped with apple compote
      2 fried apple slices dusted with powdered sugar and cinnamon
      a cinnamon cream sauce
      and an orange liquor sauce
      (the sauces are for the cake, but will be on the side)
      anyone? tasty or gross?
      if you don't like apples, or cinnamon, or orange liquor... too bad cause i have to put them in there.

      p.s. I JUST FINISHED ALL MY HOMEWORK AND PROJECTS!!!!! *happy dance*

      i am so stressed out i can barely handle it
      i have finals coming up next week... a whole weeks worth of finals. they always tell us not to worry but i've gone from getting 98-100 on all my tests to getting lucky with 85-95. everything is getting tougher and there are never enough hours in the day to get all the info into my head. i have a giant math project that is due on monday... this project is going to kill me. our directions were "make a business plan for a restaurant". that was it. every week we have two classes where our teacher feebly tries to tell us how to make a balance sheet or an income sheet or whatever, sends us on our way and then wonders why our number come out all wrong. i spent 20 minutes arguing with him today about how no one understands this class because it goes against all the math that we learned in our previous class... but he didn't listen. i was so frustrated i had tears in my eyes. i just don't think he likes being corrected... i was just at the end of my rope.
      on top of that i have a 7 page essay due on monday, and a 472 page notebook (a collection of all of our class note, hand outs, pictures, and recipes that we've gotten throughout the term) where everything must be in a page protector and have a page number and the whole thing has to have a table of contents and it's worth 25% of our grade.
      iwanttodrivemyselfoffabridge
      on the way home i felt so frustrated and angry... i came home and sat down at the computer to try to do some work but didn't even know where to start. do you ever feel like that?
      shortly after my mom came home... i thought she was coming home from work, but she was actually coming home from the hospital because she fell down this morning and banged up her face. i felt so bad... but there was nothing i could do. now she's sleeping and i feel shitty i didn't say something nicer to her.

      to cap off this awesomelycrapstatichorrible day/week i realized i lost my sponsorship today. i don't know why this bothered me so much, but i think it's because it just made me realize that i don't have the $10 to pay for it anymore and now i feel poor and helpless.

      this week can suck it.
      suck it hard.
