Coming Soon

Mysterious S! Dark, brooding, amazingly beautiful. It's a story of triumph, tribulation, and a whole lot of subtitles (not sure what language those subtitles will be in since I don't speak many...make that any languages). ;) Have a great day!

Chicken Little

I have one thing I have to get off my chest.... I ate an embryo for breakfast the other day. It wasn't even a day old yet. I pet sat for a friend this weekend and she happens to have dogs, a cat, and chickens, all of whom get along together in perfect harmony.. kind of like "ebony and ivory live together in perfect harmony" oh wait to of the dogs hate each other. Oh well forget I said anything. Anyways, the chickens laid an egg over each night I was there so I took those bad boys home and boiled them up. I almost burned the house down in the process but that story is for a whole other day:) Picture of my delici-oso fresh free range chicken egg and garden bounty from the friends house below. Thanks L!!! Oh and I am going to leave you with lyrics to Ebony and Ivory only its the SNL parody with Joe Piscopo and Eddie Murphy. It is pretty funny so YouTube that bad boy if you can. Words go along to tune of Ebony and Ivory by Sir Paul and Stevie Wonder.

"You are black and I am white
Life's and Eskimo pie, let's take a bite
That was groovy think'n Lincoln
When you set them free.

We all know, cats are the same(?)
And to (?) Mexico
Good, Bad, Guys and Chicks

I am dark and you are light
You are blind as a bat and I have sight
Side by side you are my amigo, negro
Let's not fight

Ebony and Ivory just living in perfect harmony
We're talk'n salt and pepper, Sammy and Dean,
Stevie and Me are peachy keen

You are white
You are black
And who cares."

Good Morning!!

So after a long hiatus, I am back. I know it's been awhile but I was busy and I was tired and I was bored and I could go on and on but there are really no excuses. I just didn't do anything about coming on here. So let's see what has happened in my life since July 11, 2009. Mhhhhhhhh? Um, I have been pet sitting a lot. Shocker there, I know. Um, I have been going out to eat like crazy with different friends and feel like a fatty extraordinaire today. I was on top of things last week and worked out 3 days and did all kinds of crunches and other tummy work out things. This week I messed my foot up and have worked out a total of zero times. That is not good at all. Besides the fact that I am going to kill my muscles next week when I get back into the groove of things. I went to the AC Milan/Club America soccer game at the dome this past week. That was a whole lot of fun. The people I hung out with were a lot of fun and there was loads of beer to be had. The game was exciting and a semi-upset. The soccer fans are out of control but I dug it. I saw Food Inc... which is the reason why I am now only shopping at Farmers Markets and Whole Foods. I want to support more local farmers and farmers markets and CSA's are a great way to do that. I will tell you more about CSA's some other time. I saw Gran Torino finally and liked it. I saw the Curious Case of Benjamin Button which I thought was awful and recommend that you don't waste 3 hours of your life on such a sloooooooow movie. I put an offer on a house in Cabbagetown and got turned down... twice. I entered a photowalk and am competing against 27, 000 people across the world to try and win the grand prize. I feel good about my odds. LOL. I don't think I've got anything else other than Puerto Rico in 3 weeks!! Did I tell y'all that. If not, be very, very jealous. I need to go for now, but I promise I will write again soon and if I don't you can have my firstborn. No, not really.

Slack-o-rama

What up friends and co-horts. Sorry about the slacking. I have been busy working and wasting time instead. I had some free time this weekend so I actually got a free day to myself.. AHHH!!! REfreshing. I went down to visit Serenbe and got lost in the process. Its all good though because I took lots of random photos. On the way back from the delightful Serenbe community, I drove through Union City, College Park, and East Point. As you will se

The 4th of Juli

Happy 4th and now 7th people!!! It was a good weekend for me. I am now rolling in the cash that has already been spent before I even made it. I also had a delightful time housesitting for an awesome airdale named Brucy Poosy or Bruce to anyone but me. I laid out by the pool some so I now am close to looking like I will fit in while in Puerto Rico, just a bit more color and I will be ready to emrace my nonexistent spanish roots. A girl can have dreams, can't she? I went and watched the Peachtree Road Race on Saturday. I really wish I would have run it this year, I did it last year and felt fantastic, especially since I kicked my brothers ass but this year I am thinking he could have taken me since working out is getting harder and harder. The fat has taken control of my body and forces me to eat french fries and sugar packets ( just kidding about the sugar packets). The fat also forces me to lay on the couch and not work out. Actually I dont lay on the couch and only wish I could, instead I pet sit like that's my only job or something. Wears me out. By the way, switching topics completely, did y'alll see The Bachelorette last night? Wow, thank goodness she got rid of Wes. That dude was a jack ass and I really hope his bullshit publicity stunt fails miserably and he doesn't sell any records. What a dushebag and I generally say that lightly. All right enough about me and my life... how are you? Did you have a good time? Did you eat hotdogs, eat hamburgers, drink beer, watch fireworks? Fill me in on everything I want to know.. but only so I can gossip about it later. Just kidding. Allright I took a couple of pictures at the Road Race and wanted to share them with you. You can see more at my flickr stream.

Want some salsa.. don't you wanta, want some salsa?

The title above is meant to be sung to the tune of the fanta song. I was holding off on my ultra-fab ( yeah, I went there) homemade salsa recipe because I was planning on having a dip week on here. Since that didn't happen I decided that screw dip week, I really need to post a new recipe. I am gonna forewarn you.. this salsa recipe is bad ass. I normally hate tomatoes and chunky salsas so keep that in mind. It is also completely made to my taste buds so feel free to change anything. I never measure of the ingredients in this bad guy so go with your instinct and do what you want. Have fun and get dirty. Oh and did I forget to tell you, I burned out my tiny food processor by mixing some gazpacho in it and the stuff poured out the sides into the motor. Looks like I wont be making salsa for a while. I need to get a real food processor because the one I always used was a mini one made to chop nuts. Don't forget some salsa for the 4th o' July. While y'all will be pooling, salsaing, and laking it up, I will be slaving away, walking dogs in the hot sun. Keep me in your thoughts. I will keep you in mine:)

Stephanie's Kick Ass Salsa.. the best there ever was.

Ingredients
1 can chopped tomatos ( or any type you want, I normally go chopped with onions)
1/2 onion chopped hard
2 cloves of garlic sliced
some bunches of cilantro, chopped
1-2 jalapenos depending on how much heat you want
1/2 lime, juiced
salt and pepper to taste
Throw tomatoes, onion, garlic, jalapenos, and lime juice into a blender or food processor and pulse until the salsa is not chunky anymore. Don't go too much because you want a little bit of junk but you want the consistency more like mexican restuarant salsa. ONce finished pulsing/blending, pour in a bowl and add salt and pepper to taste as well as the chopped cilantro. You will probably need at least 1/2 tbsp of salt if not more. If the salsa isn't spicy enough add more diced jalapenos or add red pper flkes or tabasco. The tabasco will change the taste a slight bit. Enjoy mi amigos.
