Yesterday in my microbio lab I spilled an entire tube of E. coli onto some important test plates. The sad part is I didn’t even realize I was spilling it. I was just standing there with it in my hand talking to someone and our TA ran over in a panic and notified me I was dripping it all over. Totally not my fault, though. I mean they’re the ones who put the lids on those things. Maybe they should make sure they’re on a little tighter next time. If they weren’t going to already, I think they might automatically flunk me now. Also, if there is an outbreak of E. coli in the Columbus area, I apologize.
I made some cookies the other night for a guest post I’m doing next week, and my dad actually ate them. I REPEAT: THEY WERE PALEO COOKIES AND MY FATHER ATE THEM. That is unusual folks. I don’t think he knew they were paleo. Because usually if I make something and he knows it’s paleo, he distances himself about 10932983 feet from it. I woke up yesterday and they were all gone so I asked my mom if she took them into work or something. She didn’t. Which only left one culprit. Because chihuahuas can’t jump that high. So my dad admitted to eating them and THEN admitted to LIKING them. Whoa. I think the world may have stopped turning everyone.
Rotation of the earth stopping and an E. coli outbreak all in one day? Sheesh.
Does anyone have a Keurig and use the little thing where you can put actual coffee grounds into it instead of buying the K-Cups? My mission this weekend is to figure out how to do that because I am spending WAY too much on those things these days. WAY too much. I never thought I would become this much of a coffee drinker but I am downing 2 cups every morning and that just isn’t in my budget anymore. How the hell do people go to Starbucks everyday? At least I haven’t acquired that habit. I actually don’t think I would even know how to order if I went to Starbucks. I’ve never really been there except for when I was younger and would get those fun iced drinks with my friends at Target. Fancy I know. I feel like there are way too many options and all the different lingo would just confuse me. Plus I’m guessing they don’t have coconut milk and stevia. And those are two things I need in my coffee. I wish I could just drink it black but that just doesn’t do it for me.
I can’t make anything without adding chocolate chips these days. Lucky for all of you. For example, I could have just made this normal zucchini bread, but no. I had to jazz it up and add the chips. Life is just better with lil chocolate nuggets sprinkled on everything, is it not? It is.
