Today is one of those days when I think to myself:

What do I know, really?

We all need to hug.

You are so great, and so are you, and so are you.

I’m grateful to be here with you all.

Where the hell is Cullen?

Do I smell maple syrup? Or is that antifreeze?

I can’t wait until next Halloween.

I wonder what we’re having for supper.

As far as we know, no one ever trached the baby Jesus.

Did I put on deodorant today?

I caught this just in time. They put the Large in with the X-Large.

My mind wanders.

What? I haven't posted in three hours? A rambling Monday list

People seem to be on edge today. I’m clamming up. I feel like I put my foot in my mouth. It’s not a good feeling.

I’ve never met the internet. But I really want to hang with the Cullen clan.

It’s going to be a busy freakin’ week. And weekend. I’m pre-tired just thinking about it.

I just looked for an album on Spotify and they didn’t have it. THEY DIDN’T HAVE IT.

There is a big difference between Chicago IX and XI.

The boy had a doctor’s appointment today. He did very well. The doctor said his lungs sounded better than ever.

One of the kids my wife babysits is always there when I get home. She’s the only one I wish I didn’t have to see, yet, every day, there she is.

A good, healthy snack for a kid is not a handful of Tootsie Rolls, a full bottle of Dr. Pepper and an oatmeal creme pie. Parents, sheesh.

This past weekend was the laziest weekend I’ve had in a long time. It felt awesome.

The night nurse says she doesn’t like scary movies. Guess what we’re watching three nights this week? Mwuwahahahahah.

Evil Segermullet out.

What school work?

Stuff about me you probably already knew if you’ve been following me for awhile—so y’all can just skip this, but if you are newer, you might find something new about me.

  • it was a blind extra uterus, no extra vagina with it
  • no longer have either of these extras—they took them from me
  • I do still have an extra uterer
  • I love to cook

thesemicullen-deactivated201307 asked:

Top-five things to do during the inevitable zombie apocalypse.

*Cracks knuckles* Okay…

1. First things first, get the fuck behind me kids, I got this!

2. Find/loot the most bad ass zombie apocalypse outfit I can find. I’m thinking Nancy Callahan, Sin City…cowboy hat and whip optional. A girl’s gotta prioritise her arsenal, yanno? 

3. Use the penthouse in my building as my base. Partly because I’m hoping that the zombies wouldn’t be able to work the lift/elevator, and I’d block up the stair case, but mostly because gah, it’s fucking awesome, and I’ll be needing to treat to myself to those views and hot tub once it all blows over. 

4. Curse myself for not coming over to you and Shauna’s for lessons at the gun range, while I still could. Though I’m pretty confident that I’ll be a sweet aim, not gonna lie. 

5. Keep a secret stash of bacon and bourbon. Just in case things begin to look really grim. 

6. Cheating here but…for #6, I’d just go the The Winchester, have a nice cold pint and wait for this to all blow over.

Tumblr Throwdown:

Dish: Entree

Theme Ingredient: Caramel

What I came up with:

Caramel Pork Tenderloin

If you’re gonna do something sweet like caramel, you’re probably better off going with Asian flavors, unless you want to be like Paula Deen and stuff caramels and apples and butter into the cavity of a chicken, y’all.

Ingredients (with costs):

  • Pork tenderloin $9
  • Sugar (on hand, but for these purposes, $1)
  • Fish sauce ($5, but only because I used Three Crabs Brand. Other brands are $2)
  • Sriracha (on hand, but let’s say $2)
  • Lime ($1)
  • Garlic ($1)
  • Salt, pepper (on hand)

I assumed sides weren’t included in the total cost, but the butternut squash was $3, the mustard greens were $1, and the rice was $2

Total: $25 if you add EVERYTHING together, including the entire bottles of fish sauce, sriracha, etc.

Sugar is cooked on the stove until it becomes dark caramel. Fish sauce, garlic, lime, sriracha are whisked together. The pork tenderloin is seared on the stovetop, then topped with sriracha fish-sauce mixture, then caramel. The whole thing is braised, covered, in a 300° oven for an hour, and served over rice with roasted butternut squash, and sauteed mustard greens with garlic. The pork is meltingly tender, sweet, hot, and delicious.

random unfollowings really do happen

semicullen started following you

Me: What are you laughing at?

Cullen:  Cats on Tumblr.

Me: Oh, I reblogged that.

Cullen: Ummm, I haven’t seen yours.  (minutes later he finally realized he unfollowed me—-he had no clue.)

It would take me longer than this to realize that Tumblr bumped me from following someone, just because I can be slow like that. 

Missing messages, random unfollowings—-tumblr really isn’t want me to like it very much.  Too bad,  I love all of you too much, I’ll just have to be annoyed by Tumblr along with you.

Clint, Cullen and Carmen: Since you are stuck with back pain, may I suggest you try these down dog modifications? 

  1. Use the back of the chair, wide stance, slight bend in the knees.
  2. DO NOT HYPER EXTEND IN THE SHOULDER SOCKETS.
  3. If a deeper stretch is accessible, use the seat of the chair. Wide stance, hinge at the hips (Note the visible fold between waist and hip/thigh). Slight bend in the knees.
  4. If an even deeper stretch, try the high side of the blocks. Hinge at the hips. Keep a slight bend in the knees.
  5. Deeper still? Try the low side of the blocks or thick books. Hinge at the hips. Lift the heels to protect the low back.
Good news night

So I got to come home to this , yes it might be a little cheesy, ( of course he’s supposed to crush on me—I think it’s kind of mandatory as my husband), but it really was sweet and just great to see after passing that med check off.  

Thanks again to the Pretty Purple Tumlbr Crush thingy, you really do brighten people’s days.  I’ve loved watching other’s get their crush on and now getting my own crush.   Thanks for all you do

Also I do crush back on my hubby too, I kind of lucked out finding him (and making it together too).  He’s kind of lots of awesome.
