easy summer cobbler

By 6/27/2007

cobbler is easy, and delicious.

line the bottom of a pyrex dish with a ready made pie crust.

(my mom said something one time about flour, but i didn't quite process all of it, so i just sprinkle some on the piecrust - dunno why?)

then plop some fruit in. berries or peaches usually. or both. fresh or frozen. whateve.

then! sprinkle some = alot of sugar on the fruit

put a second pie crust on top.

dab some butter splats all over the top

then cut some holes in the top so she doesn't explode, and bake at 350 for ... a while (until some browness starts happening on top)

serve with ice cream!

class ring

By 6/24/2007
UNC is offering a new style of class ring. apparently, its a big hit with the sorority girls

i'm not sure how i feel about it. different: yes. odd: yes. good: dunno.

what do you think?

class rings are a little weird. its like, yay - you went to undergrad! now you can.... work in excel spreadsheets.

my mom is looking for hardware for the new painted desk.

happy summer solstice!

knock-off in style

a really cool website!

olya helps find affordable alternatives to expensive designer stuff!

likey so:
DWR table = $1400

Ikea table = $269!

lamp = $975
crate and barrel lamp = $99!

some people are staunchly opposed to imitations, but i'm like whateve. you can afford what you can afford.

if you can't afford a jonathan adler lamp like soperhaps you could get this one from urban outfitters instead. he seems to be a bit plumper anyhow.

i stopped by my mom's yesterday to see her new crafting desk. she painted an old roll top desk that was in the basement. it still needs knobs, but i think it looks great so far!

our refridgerator is broken

By 6/18/2007
but at least i'm home, thank jesus.
i sort of feel like i've been released from being kidnapped or something.

bonnaroo was hot. and dusty. and dirty.

good times were had, but, i feel confident saying i will not be returning next year.
dirty, dirty hippies.

yay its 95 degrees.

this is what our feet looked like after setting our campsite up.

i'm fine. i'm happy. i can deal with dirt.

brian is happy.

lily allen! still happy. {she was wasted though}

ben harper = happy

dust starting to dust about. happiness level = beginning to fluctuate. it was so dry there, each step you took stirred up a big puff of dirt and ick.

they remain happy.

now the dust is thicker, and its hard to breathe. i am getting upset because brian insists on taking pictures of me hating the dust.

trying to watch the white stripes through the dust. its not dark. its dust.

peace out bonnaroo.

for real brian, i'm leaving now.

now my fingernail has a weird bump on it. you be the judge.
