today's news you can use! is going to be a bit different. you can thank my insane schedule for that one. my day involves back to back to back to back meetings, so i'm actually posting this from my phone. (whoever doubts my love for you should be feeling ashamed right about now!) anyways, there are some
important unimportant things i feel like you should know:
1. it IS possible to have your eyelashes burned off by sticking your head in a 450 degree oven. i did it last night, and yes i am serious.
so you know how i like to bake, right? seeing as though i'm allergic to 90% of packaged goods, i experiment with various recipes to make something yummy and delicious and full of sugar. well last night, i decided to make some "cinnamon-oatmeal-whole-grain-banana-muffins." (they are delish, p.s.) well, this being an experiment, i continually checked on them. (i treat muffin making very seriously.)
(here i am baking in my kitchen.)
apparently, i must have stuck my head or face too far in because this great rush of flaming hot heat seared my face, burning off half the length of my eyelashes. i don't have a picture because i didn't take one. i was too busy crying. i three-way called my mom and quasi to determine if 911 would accept "burned eyelashes" as a legitimate emergency. they both said "NO."
suffice if to say, my left eyelashes are now shorter than my right eyelashes by a considerable amount. fortunately, i have decently long ones to begin with.
2.quasi and i are planning a quick getaway weekend soon, so i order not one, not two, but five swimsuits from victoria's secret. i'm not even kidding you, those VS swimsuit models are always trying to convince me that if i buy their swimsuits, i, too, will look like them while wearing them. i'm not sure if they take into account the 6 muffins i ate for breakfast or the 4 fajitas i had at lunch.
(i got all five of these swimsuits.)
3. the post about my DIY project, a panic attack, and the unveiling of quasi's identity is coming very very soon. just not over here. it's being debuted somewhere else. (i'll give you a hint - it's going to be posted next tuesday a.m. so get stoked and mark your calendars accordingly.)
