Paper Dolls

I found this website where you can play with paper dolls essentially. I know there are a lot of them out there. I found this one through a newsletter thing that I get. This one's actually a lot of fun. It's got animation and clothes and makeup and stuff. But that, to the left, is my Meez.

I also decided to make cookies which are very yummy. I've eaten like half of them already. It's an easy enough recipe to make, though it calls for almond meal which I don't usually use. I picked it up from Trader Joe's though, and I'm pretty sure you can get it at regular grocery stores, if not you can just finely grind up an appropriate amount of almonds.
  • 1.5 cups groupnd almonds (6 oz.)
  • scant 1/2 cup superfine sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder (not in the original recipe, but I put it in.)
  • 2 egg whites
  • some kind of sugar to decorate

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease your baking sheet or use a non-stick. Combine dry ingredients. Whisk egg whites separately in a clean bowl until they begin to stiffen. Fold enough into the Almond mixture to make a fairly firm mixture. Roll the dough into small balls and place on baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes. Slide a metal spatula under each cookie to release, but leave on the cookie sheet to cool. To decorate, you can either roll them in a small amount of powdered sugar before or after baking, or before baking you can roll along one side through raw sugar. Because they come out brown though, this makes them look slightly like meatballs.

I feel like I am somehow more attractive to the wrong kind of guy anymore. There is a guy at work that is creeping me out, and I had to set my MySpace friend requests to private so people would stop trying to proposition me. I don't feel like I'm that hot that people should feel like they're able to come on to me like that. Neither do I feel that desperate. Right now I am interested in one person (beyond your basic never-gonna-happen Jake Gyllenhaal fantasies) and he is in a different state. Everyone else that is stalking me, or interested in me, feel free to keep reading my blog, feel free to say hi to me, I'm still going to be friendly (I work at Starbucks, it's part of my job), but honestly, I'm not interested.

And I'm not interested in anyone more than 7 or 8 years older than me. As a rule. My parents are 25 years apart. I see what's happening to their relationship now and over the past 10 years. I have no desire for a sugar-daddy. Besides which, I was never that into older guys. Harrison Ford, while seriously cool, just doesn't do it for me....

Question of the Day: Who does it for you?

Singles Ad:

Name: Grimace Johnson [Nobody ever asks me my last name :( ]
Age: 65
Height: 6'-4"
Ethnicity: Purple Felt
Religon: Spiritual but not religious
Pets: None, unless you count a box of talking McNuggets... I do like dogs that don't pee on me.
Live: With roommates (The Fry Guys)

About Me: Not much to tell...I work in marketing for a major fast food company, love water polo, and horseback riding. I went to college to be a chiropractor, but discovered people don't trust me since I have no actual neck. I have recently taken up interpretive dance. I have never seen my feet....ever. I don't wear pants...which might be why I never stop smiling. I smell vaguely of cooking oil. I tell the ladies it's Hugo Boss.

About you: I like taller ladies since I'm tall. If you know how to operate a deep fat fryer that's a REAL bonus! I have one but I always burn my fur with it..and the friggin Fry Guys won't go near the thing. I've never actually kissed a girl before...mostly because nobody can reach my head. Please be the first!

:mouths the words "call me":

Looks like someone is starting to build a big city wall around themselves. Pretty soon you won't even say Hi in return while walking down the street.
