Amazing stuff/ stuff that made me laugh this week..

Every week I usually stumble across something, from friends or on the internet, that truly makes me laugh out loud. Or something that really inspires me or makes me feel happy inside. So I'd like to make a collection of things I liked this week and make a collection of them here so these thoughts won't be lost.

1. Mattie's lemon tart

I gave her the idea for this recipe that I found on She brought a piece to school and demn, it ws good. :P!/photo.php?pid=31286568&id=1202797376

That's the link there if you want to see this awesome cake :P

2. This blog from a very funny amateur cook. Not only is she witty (her blog motto is: ganing weight, one pastry at a time :P,) but she also has some pretty brilliant recipe ideas (Key Lime Pie cupcakes, anyone?) The title alone of some of the recipes makes you simeultaneously want to drool and hop on a treadmill and jog 5 kilometers.

I also find this picture on that site:

Amazing. XD The green thing on the left is a cactus, in case that wasn't clear.

3. Haha. I laughed out loud at this one. I did. Very loud.

Become a fan of this group on Facebook I LFMAO when I saw these suggestions on Google. You won't regret it.

4. The recipe for Earl Grey cupcakes. Yes, they exist. My favorite tea sort. :O

I'm going to so make these sometime. Don't tell me this doesn't look good.

And on the same site I found a lovely quote which I think is going to become one of my favorites. So the last one:

Biology, Randomness. The Meaning of Life.

In biology we learned yesterday that most of the bees in a bee hive are female. Most males, when they are born, are simply useful to impregnate the Queen. After the deed they are driven outside out of the bee hive and left to die.
As disturbing as this is (hihi,) I also think it's quite interesting how the women are always on top in the animal kingdom. Women have the power. Females are the boss. Female prey mantises eat male prey matisses after mating. I guess you could say that with humans it's exactly the same way, except that we females are silly enough to let the men actually believe that they are in charge. (Maybe we should stop doing gives them ideas.....)

To switch to a totally different subject, I think it's really time for a change. I've come to a conclusion that I really need to turn things around, preferably before we go on vacation to Florida. It's a kind of goal I have set for myself.
But what's wrong, you say? Well...just about everything. I've gotten extremely lazy lately with organization and planning of homework. The only way I'm getting by in school nowadays is because (not to sound conceited) I am a quick learner and have a lot of useless background knowledge stored in my brain. Otherwise I think my grades would have been terrible. My grades are OK right now, but I think they could be better.
And yeah.....there is of course, other stuff as well....but I think I will explain that in another post.

Today is such a lazy, unproductive day and I have decided not to do anything. I did attempt to clean up my room/ do some homework, nothing really came out of any of these attempts, except perhaps that I am a couple of sums further with my economics homework. Oh's Good Friday, mom is making gado-gado (Indonesian dish....a kind of salad with peanut tastes better then it sounds) so we won't be eating meat.
I'm pretty sure my French test on Thursday went badly, but that is completely not my French teacher was being horridly distracting. :O He was watering a plant in the windowsill during the test and it fell out the open window. On top of everything else, it was raining which added to the all-around hilarity.

Me:"I guess that plant's getting enough water now....."

The man is completely nuts. He does things like that every time we take a test, looking up pictures on the computer, making clicking noises or saying random things like, "I have so many papers to grade! Shall I kill myself?"
(Yes, he actually said that. I was tempted to say that he should and get it over with so I could finally finish my test in peace.)
Other news: My salary has just come in (all 103 euros) so now I can go on a shopping spreee!!!! Yay!! I think maybe I'll get Mattie to go to Amsterdam to shop with me.
Grr....perhaps I really should clean up my room....I know being unproductive today is going to cost me later, because I think I'm going to be busy the upcoming days. Somehow I still can't motivate myself....:P
