Luck of the Irish…..Freaking Awesome

So i was strutting around in my living room doing cool stuff like making lazer guns when I saw “Luck of the Irish” pop on the telly.  Immediate reaction about forced me to go change my pants, but it made me think like all great Disney movies do.  What happened to kids shows as we know them? I doubt much people my age or my sanity watch children’s shows anymore in which people would call me the creeper for such comments.   Besides the fact that I am indeed a creeper, I’ve got two younger sisters so go bungee jump without a bungee, critics. 

Back to this catastrophe, there isn’t much rhyme or reason to kids shows these days.  No creativity, no plotlines, no animated kids shows that make sense.  Like Chowder, what on God’s green earth happened there? The guy who created canned laughter is making a killing off of these damn shows. A reflection of society would say we’re raising our children into a plotline that doesn’t make sense where laughing at ourselves seems okay instead of trying to fix it.

Oh yea, happy color green and alcohol day people! Since I’m not Irish I don’t believe I get the honor of calling it by it’s other name.  But anyway, I was making this recipe at work and looked to see other variations on line and found this one.  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/irish-soda-bread-recipe/index.html.  Very interesting recipe indeed, better be open to new flavors and textures on this one.  My grand dad used to tell me that the Irish were no good beatnicks but thankful that they gave him the nectar of life. *cheers his Guinness in hand.  He also used to tell me, “Taylor, when you start blogging remember to tell people good luck and have fun.” All I did was shook my head in approval.  Good luck and have fun catching leprechauns!

More Snow….Freaking Awesome

As I sit pondering the 6 to 12 inches of white stuff that’s headed our way, I think about all the people who complain about the snow and tell them, “how about you get the hell out of my state, it snows here, that’s what happens.” If you want to make this less crappy for you, then go to the Casey’s near my house and get the best hot chocolate in town. 

My friends and I went to Avenue Q last night at a college near Cedar Rapids, and if one hasn’t seen Avenue Q, one must find it their top priority to go see it.  Screw seeing friends, breathing, going to the bathroom, or any else of the sort, just Avenue Q in all of it’s dirty Sesame Street like goodness.  I mean with songs like “the Internet is for porn” how you can go wrong with a musical around those types of topic area.  The show is a coming of age piece that deals with great social issues while playing on stereotypes with absolute hillariousness.   It was a great show, a very talented group of young folk,  got me wondering again where I want to go for my theater degree after Mount Mercy, going to be a while yet though.  One thing at a time, as my jedi master told me, he also told me not to go to the dark side…..crap, my bad.

  This weeks recipe is Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies.  http://www.justataste.com/2013/02/valentines-day-red-velvet-cheesecake-brownies-recipes/ i’m not going to lie, I’ve never made these before but they looked pretty freaking awesome.  I might add a drizzle on top of white chocolate, but I usually just try to make things as fattening as possible. I am going to make strawberry cookies with white chocolate chips this week though for the cast of Elephant Man.  (Practice starts this week, i’m raging with excitement.) Well everybody as they say in the old west, good luck have fun and seriously, trim that beard up you look like a hippy.
