    I don't know what to call it, it is ugly and smells bad and it called me naughty names.

    Hmm, looks bad, smells bad, and talks bad.

    That's bad.

    So where do we run too? There's only a lake around here. Where will we end up if we run that way?

    Long night in the Debio household. First, little debio insisted on watching this and then this over and over and over. While watching these two videos, he also insisted on eating chocolate. Apparently he ate too much, I think mom was giving him some when I wasn't looking, or I was when she wasn't looking or something. So, he does the chocolate barf thing.

    On the dog.

    When going to bed, he insisted that there was a monster in the closet. Now, I had been expecting this and have been giving him three different reasons not to be afraid.

    1. This house is brand new and we had a priest bless it to protect against monsters. (True)

    2. Papa is secretly a monster slayer and all the monsters are afraid of him.(True only back in my RPG days) I leave stuff around the house and tell him it is monster body parts.

    3. I gave him a stuffed bear and told him that the bear is stronger than the monsters and will protect him if he shares his cookies. (papa eats the cookies he gives to the bear when he isn't looking)(no, that is NOT why I told him that story.)

    Today, methods 1 and 2 didn't seem to work. And for 3, it took four cookies before he believed. It must have been a scary monster.

    I certainly hope that egg is a Mark IV plasma grenade. We could sure use one now.

    Coworker brought me a chocolate bunny this morning. But it's a "fairy bunny." There's something kind of badass about a bunny with wings... made even better by the whole chocolate thing.

    Sorry, 10s. I've got wheat/gluten sensitivity (my reaction is painful, though) and a severe shellfish allergy. I tend to limit dairy, just because. So, if you need good gluten- and dairy-free recipes (especially for baking), let me know. I have tested LOTS.

    10s -- I slightly modify this recipe (a bit more vanilla, no powdered sugar) and people request it not knowing it's gluten- and dairy-free. Perfect for breakfast.

    This weekend, I'll PM you a blend for flour that will be a) cheaper than buying the pre-packaged stuff b) make for better baked goods/pancakes/chicken breading/etc. and c) thickens up nicely with almond or soy milk.
