meehhhhhhh... you guys.... I'm sitting here in front of my fan, mainlining popsicles and dealing with extreme brain melt as suggested in my post from awhile ago about how to beat the heat.
*Note, it is 30 degrees and sunny outside, which is not that hot in the grand scheme of things, but given that genetic makeup was designed to live out on the foggy moors, I am not super-well equipped to deal with this.
|At least I don't have to wear 10,000 layers of petticoats, like this poor overheated vintage lady.|
Anyway, I was attempting to locate a thought in the goo that is my overheated brain today, and it was right there under my hands! In order to make a little money and declutter (mainly to declutter), I put up a bunch of my books for sale online. So far, I have sold two - both of them very heavy, sizable cookbooks. I listed both as "like new" condition, which is totally accurate because I never used them. In fact, I never use any cookbooks.
|Sorry, Julia. It's not you, it's me! And you're still fabulous! I just don't want to own any of your books.|
Why? The internet. When I want to make something, it's so easy to just go to Epicurious or Allrecipes (or just Google the recipe I'm looking for) and find a recipe that looks good. I hate clutter and paperwork, in general. When I find a recipe that I particularly like, I may save it in an email or something, but I never print it out and keep it or anything like that. And they are big and heavy and annoying when moving.
Cookbooks are nice for pictures, and everything. And they make nice gifts, and look impressive on your shelves.
If you're keeping track, now I have two items on a list of items that I will never ever, buy:
And I'm thinking of adding bubble bath to that list, mainly because it's so hot right now that a bubble bath sounds like the most torturous thing anyone could possible ever do. And also, I keep being regifted bubble bath. But I will wait and reassess that another day.
For now, I need to muster my energy to go and buy some watermelon. Watermelon = BLISS
