Cinnamon chips for Chai brownies

Cinnamon chips for Chai brownies

Sometimes my child is such perfection that I can’t stand it

Houseguest T and I were discussing how great Chai spice brownies would be this morning

So I decided to Google it because I’m sure somebody before me had figured out the proper proportions of spices.

Google link one, “these healthy brownies” and back to the searching.

Google link two “these carob brownies are eggless and dairy free so they’re vegan!” And back to searching.

Google link three is for Blondie brownies which is lovely but not what I want.

Google link four is for a cooking light recipe.

Google link five involves putting in tablespoons of Chai tea powder (instead of cardamom and ginger and cinnamon and pepper and all that other glorious stuff.

Six more Chai powder

Seven Blondie

Eight vegan

Dudes, I think I’m going to have to do this myself

Last night I let the girls eat half of their chocolate crunch bunny and this morning I found a head in captain America’s shield. I’m pretty sure Pippa is responsible.

So … Ryan had been in space long enough to forget briefly how to walk but not long enough to grow any body hair? I call shenanigans.

it actually doesn’t take very long at all for astronauts to forget how to balance in gravity! in simulators on earth, it takes like 20 minutes…

Right, I know it happens quickly but a week without shaving and we’d at least see stubble? We zoom right in on her legs and armpits quiteclose and you could tell in hd that they were smooth as the proverbial baby’s behind

More of that strange billboard mentioned Monday. Apparently the parks department put them up as viral marketing for the “bike rodeo”

I always get annoyed at schools with displays and only one featured person is not a dead white male.

This big ole sign showed up on the corner of the library’s lawn sometime over the weekend.  It says “NEPTUNE would go to the MOON for a cure!” next to a picture of a fireman.  Nothing else.  No web address, no explanation, nothing.  Nobody in the library knows what the heck the sign is about but the lawn is technically the city’s so nobody knows if it’s supposed to be there or not.  I’ve been sleuthing all day and nothing.

A PATRON SAYS THEY’D LIKE TO “RENT” A BOOK

meh - if a patron uses the wrong terminology I am not at all bothered.  It is far too easy to get bogged down in jargon in this profession.  I’ll probably reply with the right words (“I’d like to rent these books” “sure, just come on over to the desk and I’ll check them out for you.  Your loan period is three weeks.”), but I wouldn’t make them use them before I served them.  That’s just being pedantic.
