They were fairly easy and came out cute. I plan to make more. I also found that having a way to hang it from something while I was wrapping it helped a lot. Also using a spring clamp (or clothes pin) to keep the wrapping from loosening add you go along.
The directions can be found here.
This week: missing tooth filling, laptop in need of CPR and pluming on life support. Can we just consider this week a FAIL and we all go home to watch Netflix? Nothing bad seems to happen when you watch Netflix.
The Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’m giving this 5 stars because I loved loved the book and even though I’m someone that enjoys an ending that isn’t nice and tidy (ie. The Sopranos) I still think there could have been a little more substance in the ending.
[I have a spoiler part in this section but you can read it if you want in my goodreads review]
I’m giving it 5 stars because I fell in love with the story and with Sutter himself, he was a fantastic character full of life and complexity. I think if I could have I would have given this a 4.5 but I couldn’t and I just couldn’t give this a 4, it was too good for that. While I loved Sutter I also thought Amy was a fantastic character and all the other characters too. This story was very rich and full of life, just the story I needed right now. I am actually looking forward to seeing how the movie comes out, the trailer shows a lot of potential. I’m glad they picked a guy who isn’t well known instead of some Teen Beat kind of guy.
I am sitting here missing Sutter though, there never seems to be enough of him.

In the last couple of months something started changing for me, or in me maybe. It had nothing to do with the outside world though, I think something just shifted inside of me. I didn’t suddenly decide I wanted to be a size 2 or have a six pack. I didn’t look at someone else and think “I want that.” I didn’t decide to start some diet health program where I follow some diagram or system to help you lose weight. Those are all things I’d done many many many times in the past and they never really worked. This time, it was something entirely different, something I don’t think I could explain with charts and diagrams, it’s just a shift.
I’ve had weight problems my whole life, it’s part of my genes and I deal with a lot of medical things that make losing weight really hard such as my hypothyroidism. Others problems include my job, my commute, my back pain and my sicatica/LCS in my leg. However, I started back on My Fitness Pal again, which I’ve done before, but this time for some reason I really decided to put in every single meal, even the not so good ones, after every single meal. I know that if I forget to put in a day of meals I will end up not tracking anymore at all.
I started going to the gym regularly again and just trying to get more cardio but this last week I couldn’t do anything really because of my sciatica/LCS (I can barely walk at times much less run, there is some kind of nerve/muscle issue and I don’t want to make it worse). However it seems just being more aware of what I’m eating and deciding not to eat certain things based on what I’d eaten that day seems to have made a big difference.
I admit I am eating more fruits and veggies than normally but not that much more than before. I’m drinking more water but not that much more water. I’m not really giving up any food, just being mindful. I don’t need to be some fit girl anymore that’s a size 2, I just want to feel healthy and good about myself. So far I’m definitely feeling better about myself and healthier, hopefully when I get this back/sciatica thing under control I’ll be able to take this up a notch but I think it’s good I don’t try to do too much too quickly.
Oh, did I mention, I’ve lost 16 lbs from my heaviest weight a few months ago? Yup.
My theories on the end of Breaking Bad, not in order of plausibility.
- Jesse or someone he cares about kills him face to face.
- One of those people kills Walt and then takes his place as the new Heisenberg (ie. Jesse, Skyler or Walt Jr.)
- He dies of cancer alone in a dingy hotel room and we see his last breath with a look of resignation that he brought himself to the place he is right now.
Those are the ones I think are most plausible.
ps. as of this moment I have not seen the new episode yet, so don’t spoil me.
