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:
When using the electric mixer, please hold it with the beaters straight down into the bowl. Unless you actually like wiping cake batter off the walls... ::)

if you ever eat at permanentgrins house, keep an eye out for random thumbnails.

that's no fun.  if you find it you're the lucky winner!  you don't want to be the lucky winner?

that's like finding the baby/coin/etc in the cake. a lucky toenail!

NTS,
You knew when you broke with your biological family that no one would be around to remember your birthday and send you a card. Face it, your mom passed on  years ago, and none of your siblings would bother anyway.
You also know you are better off without them. That's not a family, it's a bunch of people with the same last name.
Deal with it. Enjoy yourself and stop looking for external validation.

Happy birthday, anyway, you old person!

Note To Self:
When making fruit butter, either use powdered spices, or pick out the whole cloves before you blitz the puree. Those chunks of clove spoil the finished product.

NTS: You totally negate the whole eating well thing when you make a GIANT healthy dish and then proceed to eat all of it!

Note to Self:
Next time you make red-lentil hummus, DRAIN the cooked lentils before you blitz them. Duh.

ETA: And more salt will NOT make up for the shortcomings of said drippy hummus. You know that; so why did you add more?

NTS: Just because you got caught up on a week's worth of work in 4 hours yesterday does not mean that you can spend all of today screwing around on VW! Get to work!

NTS: Don't volunteer to help on your day off just because you know that's what your boss wants to hear you say. You don't want to do it, and now your breakfast is being put on hold. WAY TO GO!

Note to Self:
Stop whining about it. You're committed, and a damn good thing it is, too. Someone had to make you shape up.
Do this thing!

NtS: Now is not the time to stress out. You have had all semester to get off your butt and do something about all these issues, but no you went the lazy route. So do not complain when everything heaps up on you at the end of the semester. It is your own darn fault! Next time do not procrastinate.

Note To Self:
Why do you insist on feeling hurt and angry when you knew damn well she was going to blow you off? You were right not to text her a reminder, she's an adult, and if she didn't show she didn't want to. So suck it up. Why do you want someone around who treats you like this? I know she's just one of many...but deal with it. Suck it up, give it to God, do whatever you do but get over yourself.
At least you made good use of the time. I'm proud of you for NOT texting her a "Where are you" or calling the house.
Breathe. Breathe. And blow her off. Permanently.

NTS: If you ever visit Spain and want to visit yabbit, DO NOT blow her off. You don't want to make her  >:( or :'( K?

Thank you, NRK. I'm done venting about that now, I promise.

NTS: You've been up since 5 AM. It's now 9 PM. You're exhausted. Go to bed. It's really OK to do that. There is no law that says just because you live in S. Europe and it's summer, that you have to stay up till 11 or after.

G'night

NTS- buy an onion, or at least check if you have an onion before you get all excited to make onion rings. And no, dont listen to your dreams, they are not hiding behind the apples no matter how much you dig
