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- 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

When life gives you onions, make onion rings! (Or bahji!)

Apples and onions, however, are unfortunately not interchangeable. FTR.

There's a German dish that fries apples and onions together. I don't know what sort of fat they would use. It's mentioned in Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Farmer Boy." His parents were of German extraction.

Note to Self:
Composing emails or letters to friends in your head does not get them sent to said friends. No wonder you haven't heard from Cousin Ralph in a couple of years.
Get your finger out.

NTS:
It's not enough to "read over" the instructions, you have to pay attention while you do it. So now you've put all the fabric away and you've just this minute realised that instead of cutting 97x4 pieces, or 56x4 pieces, to make 97 or 56 motifs, you have cut only 1 piece each.

Smart girl. NOT.

NTK (note to keri)- No!! I do this often.. and you can never be too tired for vegweb. Last night i fell asleep on the keyboard in the middle of a post.

wow!  i've done that so many times!  haha.  a super super long time ago (eight years ago i think?) i was typing in one of my online journals (deadjournal or livejournal... i think dj though) and i kept falling asleep before i could finish the entry.  anyways, so i finally finished it and i was too exhausted to proofread it.  the next day when i did proofread it, it said this:

"anyways, he could get mad at you because ogf youf pass. you really did what you think! no point in the rain!!!"

um, yeah.  that's a direct quote and it made absolutely no sense with any of the rest of the entry.  immediately before that i was talking about how my stepmother had gotten pissed that i was unable to get inside after a school dance and she had to get out of bed to let me in.  my key was stuck in the door and it wouldn't work, so she opened the door and broke it off and handed me the useless bit that came off.  i really don't get any of that stuff about my past or the rain or whatever.  haha.

NTS: Waking up grumpy is not a good way to start the day. So remember to let these things go so you can go out and enjoy the sunshine!

Note to self:
The trouble with doing pretty much nothing is you never know when you're done. Stop this blobbly-globby flollopy existence and actually DO something. Finish cutting the pieces for the quilt, finish the conference you started a month ago, clear cupboards. DO something.

You've wasted the month of July, don't do that to August.

You don't deserve to have any inspirations because you're not using what you have.
Geeeeaaaccchh.

NTS, stop eating pizza when it is really hot. Now you have burns.

NTS, GET PACKING FOO'! You have THREE DAYS, all of which also involve one shift of work. Srsly, pack. No more internets.

NTS, delete the saved game of Pokemon where all of the animals have silly names. It will embarrass you when you send it off. PS: send it soon. You are a procrastinating weewee.

I feel your pain! Back in the days when I actually ate pizza, I always did this! Always got blisters on the roof of my mouth. Then, I transferred my affections to Chinese food, and always, always burnt my tongue in the way that leaves you with Scotchbrite in your mouth for a couple of days.

BTW, what is it with Chinese restaurants and boiling-hot soup?

*giggles madly* Ponycakes said "weewee!"  ;D

NTS,
Good on you for getting two or three things done that you've been putting off for the last week or so. Now, you're on a roll, don't go back to "circling".

(For those who don't know, "circling" is a phenomenon where you wander mindlessly from one room to another, picking things up, forgetting what you were going to do with them, and putting them down...somewhere else. This leads directly to never being f*ing well able to find what you're looking for! And of course, frustration causes you to sit down at the computer and VW instead!)

NTS:
If you put tomatoes in a curry, and then add yogurt, of COURSE it curdles. Tomatoes have acid in them.

Stupid.

Next time leave the tomatoes out.

Dear brain and mouth,
Please try working together; don't think white and say black.  And purple instead of orange??  Where did that come from?  On the same note, kitchen and bathroom are not interchangeable terms.  I'd appreciate a little teamwork up there.  Thanks.

Deposit checks tonight. Then you will have money! That's how it works, love!.. :)
Also, pick tomatoes.

Note to savvyidler:
I can't even explain it, but my brain and mouth sometimes fight each other on numbers, colors, and letters. I sometimes get K and 7 mixed up, and also purple and R. There are some other ones too. I honestly think I am mad!!
