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?  ???

nts: make sure you have powdered sugar before you try to make frosting. 

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".

haha - you know how grumpy people can get if they don't get their daily allowance of cholesterol in..

my brownies were sitting right by some regular betty crockers and i heard this guy go, "do these have EXTRA cholesterol"? and he grabbed a betty crocker. lol!

note to self:
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.

NTS: Do not be so jealous of our down-under contingent. Just because it's like 42º C out and it isn't even the Equinox doesn't mean you can whine and kick the desk after reading OWW's post.

Hoping and crossing your fingers CAN work! This is awesome! Do it more!

Is it weird that when I was defrosting the car yesterday I was actually thinking about you and your desire for cold weather? cos I was.

Get your facts straight before marching to your bosses boss and having a hissy fit and making a fool of yourself because you don't know what you're talking about.  :-[

NTS:

Speaking of abbreviations, HFS = health food store. It does not refer specifically to Whole Foods. Do you really think that most VegWebbers spell it "HOLE foods store" or something like that?

Sheesh, they (Whole Foods, not VWers) have you brainwashed.

NTS:

In the summer, you need sunscreen. This farmer's tan is getting out of control (especially since now the entire world can see exactly where my bra strap was sticking out of my sleeveless shirt as I ate lunch outside!)

Note to self--

Yes, your espresso maker is awesome. You'll save a ton of money in the long run for purchasing it. Now, please don't use it after, oh, 4PM or so. And definitely don't use it at 9 PM. Not when you're trying to become a morning person.

Note to self: please please stop being so tired. Your productivity wasn't flash this morning, and it's doing nothing but getting worse this afternoon. I know it's Friday, but there's still a few hours left in the work week, so toughen up and do some work.

nts:
investigate all of the normal maintenance checks and repairs needed for your car.
this whole "learn when and because something breaks" routine isn't the preferred
learning method.  next time daddy won't give you $900 to fix something that
should have been replaced about 10,000 miles ago... which would have been FAR cheaper.
