Cooking, Funny


Here’s what happens when you’ve got too much on your mind: Yeah, my handheld blender is not supposed to look like that.  I made another batch of applesauce in the crockpot and was waiting  for it to finish.  For some reason, it went longer than usual and I was in a hurry.  Once it finally… Read More Whoops

Friendly Canadians

I’m frequently asked if I’m a Canadian.  I think it’s most likely due to the fact that the majority of North American immigrants in New Zealand are from Canada as opposed to the States.  And besides, most Kiwis can’t tell our accents apart… kind of like how most Americans can’t tell the difference between a… Read More Friendly Canadians

Saved by my Subconscious!

Apparently my subconscious is extremely protective of me. Allow me to offer up some examples (try not laugh)… (1) I visited my sister S just after finals during my freshman year at Purdue. She was living in Arizona at the time. The first night we get there, S gets the “brilliant” idea to scare me… Read More Saved by my Subconscious!
