The official "Notes to Self" Thread

We have open letters, but there are times it's more of a "note to self" scenario. So I thought I'd give us a place to put them.

I'll start!

Note to Self:
Baking Powder and Baking Soda are not interchangeable. That is why there are 2--because they're completely different things. You actually know this. So why are you so surprised when your baking flops?  ???

stop falling in love with every pretty boy that gives you curry!

i love curry enough that this could easily be a problem to fall upon me.

fall in love with the curry... not the pretty boys! 

pretty boys come and go, curry is forever.

...or something like that...

If you're going to spend this much time at work browsing vegweb, you're going to have to start bringing more to have for lunch than a banana.  Looking at/thinking about/talking about delicious vegan food all day is going to result in your stomach getting so hungry it threatens to eat you from the inside out. And that's neither vegan, nor very healthy. So there.

I am 100% with you on that! I sit here at work browsing the vegweb page and sit here wanting all this great food, and then I look over at what I brought and it usually seems inadequate!

NTS:

If you power up the laptop when you get home for the sole purpose of surfing the internet, YOU WILL NEVER GET OFF OF IT. So please, don't even start. I know the weather was horrific last night so a nice bike ride would have been out of the question (as would have the quick car ride to the gym), but you could have

1. Shredded
2. Done yoga
3. CLEANED

So just, from now on, don't even do it.

And get off vegweb so you can go shred (without being late for work)...

NOW.

Note to Selves (this includes you, evil twin):

Listen to Caroleena. She knows what she's saying. OK, so you don't have a gym or a car but you do have a conference to write. Go do it. Get OFF the Net and do some work, you lazy thing!

nts,

your car hates you.
and it's probably not worth getting it fixed.
that means you need to find a different job!
(can't do pizza delivery on foot!)

NTS: Calm, calm, calm. Panicking will not get you a job, get Dave a job, make you magically graduate with a 2.1, obtain money owing from the flatmate or get you running three point one miles. It's probably not helping the illness either. Try to zone out and do something relaxing this evening then for God's sake sleep for eight hours. Tomorrow will be better.

next time you're having great difficulty melting the ice on the windscreen so you can go to work, before you get annoyed and end up half-drenching yourself with the hose, check for ice INSIDE the car.

yeah. Seriously, the inside of my windscreen was all iced up, as well as the outside. It wasn't a comfortable drive to work, I can tell you that.

hahaha!  been there!

and for icing, it doesn't work very well to blend your own.  i make my own for baked goods and such, but for frostings and icings it doesn't get smooth enough and it will have a sandy texture.

Yes, I have tried that too...maybe you could get it fine enough with a vitamix, but with the cuisinart, it's waaay to sandy for frosting.  :)

P.S.  Let's make that a note to self :flower:

oh no! are the asheville cupcakes foiled?
i was out of brown sugar when I was making brownies. they did not come out as well as the ones I had made the day before (both for special occasions).

nts: Don't label your brownies "cholesterol free" at an omni party. They will be made fun of (luckily no one knew they were yours) (other food was labeled). Next time just write  "homemade brownies". or "brownies from scratch".

I did that not so long ago.  I talked about how I've had a crush on our attorney for about five years.  It's especially brilliant to discuss a work crush on the person most able to own your ass if bothered by it.  I hope she didn't mind.  I don't think she even heard me talking.
