That'll learn me

All winter I've been one of those obnoxious, irritating people whining about how we should have more snow!

We're supposed to leave for Ireland midday tomorrow. here is's Airport Impact chart for midday tomorrow.


The next time I mention wishing it would snow? Slap me.

What cheese am I?

Your cheese rating is:

Oszczypek is a very old, smoked cheese, made by shepherds living in the Tatra mountains of Poland from unpasteurised sheeps milk. It has a distinctive, slightly salty taste, and its colour various from pale yellow to brown, depending on the duration of smoking.

Get your cheese rating!

I have not had this cheese! Nor can I pronounce it. Maybe we should go to Poland next....

Oh hey, The Sexy Blonde's latest post just reminded me, I was going to send out this recipe for those of you who came to the last spa day and asked.

Cream cheese mints
4 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 tsp. mint extract
3 drops food coloring
2-1/4 cups sifted powdered sugar

Mix cream cheese, mint and food coloring; gradually add powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Pipe out mints (I used a large cake decorating tip — a cookie press would work too) onto a piece of wax paper or parchment paper sprinkled with granulated sugar. Sprinkle more sugar over the top, chill for at least 2 hours.

Why do I always seem to post on Wednesday?

The Mixologist (Diplowhat?) hinted that maybe I should update my blog more. I can pretty much assure you all that you don't want that, since right now my brain is All Ireland, All the Time. That's one of my favorite parts of vacation. Mentally, it always starts significantly before the actual event. Giving your brain something fun and interesting to dwell on for weeks? Priceless. Tiresome for other people though.

Just a reminder, tomorrow is one of the best days of the year, the "50% off chocolate in red wrappers" holiday. Enjoy!

In which I go all geeky and fangirl

Oh, Heroes, you are so awesome!

This is a screencap of the car Hiro's father (played by George Takei) showed up in.

Geek in-jokes. Yay.
