Have you ever had sugar in your ears?

Because I sure have. Everything sounds sticky.

I ask this rather random question due to a rather random occurrence last Tuesday.

I could just explain it, but since I know cooking blogs are so very popular, I figure I can just give you directions. Maybe someday I will actually cook.

The recipe is as follows:
  • A few dozen young adults
  • An empty field
  • A few pounds of
    • flour
    • powdered sugar
    • chocolate powder
Place powdery elements into assorted bombs sewn together out of light cloth or napkins, and let the violence commence. It is wonderful to top it all off with a few water balloons and group photographs. You will not be sorry you did it.

Life Without Laptop

The motherboard in my ol' Lappy is officially shot. This is a knowledge I have had for a few days now, but was unable to communicate it on the blog, due to the fact that the motherboard in my ol' Lappy was officially shot. I am now at work, and things are slow, so I am allowed to blog to my hearts content. I will not lie, at the moment I would rather sleep to my heart's content.

So that is why I haven't been around much in the online venue for a few days. In that time I have come to find how dependent I am on the little guy. Almost every single hobby and responsibility I have involves a computer in some essential way. My life has been put on hold without it.

Lindz's Summer Bucket List

Summer is here, and I am bored too much. As such, I'm going through some awesome activities that are coming up around here that I want to be part of. I'm making a list, not only for the blog, but for my own personal reference. PS, future Lindsey, you want to keep the $$ as low as possible here. Poor college student, remember?

So here goes!

Life Started Again Today

Have you ever had one of those miserable mornings?
I have. Like today.

I was unable to sleep last night for a number of reasons, and then woke up an hour earlier than planned, unable to fall asleep again. I'm still recovering from illness, and have been afraid to eat much. Knowing I had a long shift ahead of me at work, I was very discouraged. Shaky and weak in almost every way. I just wanted to fall back and cry rather than stand up and go. We've all had mornings like that.

But worry not, my readers, for this post is not one of whining and grousing about how difficult life is. I do not do that, and it will get you nowhere. Rather, I want to come to you all and explain the miracle of the morning.

My Shows

I've been stuck at home sick and all blechy for about two days now, and as such have not had much to do other than watch my TV shows. I own many of them on DVD, and I'm a HUGE fan of Hulu. I adore having TV shows to follow; it's something to look forward to every week and something to collect and enjoy. I figured, since I'm well enough to type today, that I would do a little feature on my favorite shows and why I watch them. And since I can't pick and choose, I'll just put them in alphabetical order.

Defying the Elements

Sorry I haven't been around for about a week! I was probably catching up on sleep from that last post, or something like that.

So I love being one of those young insane people. I definitely prefer insanity in comparison to logic and reason. As such, if I've sat at home and not done much for most of the day other than a few errands and necessities, I will start going out of my mind. Then, suddenly, something crazy happens. Something like what my friends and I did at about 11:00 on Monday night.

For those of you who live in the Salt Lake area, you know that it has been raining like no other lately. You also know that it tends to get dark when the sun goes down. Given the circumstances, the plans with my friends were originally to go to a movie. When the motivation behind that idea waned, we did what any other sane person would do, and decided to hike up a muddy mountain in the dark. It was quite possibly the best thing ever.

PS, for my new readers who don't know who I am, I'm the redhead girl with either the gray shirt or the white coat, depending on the pic. Did I in fact put on a white coat to hike a mountain in the rain? Yes, good sir, I did indeed do that.

Sleep Typing

A friend of mine informed me the other day that when I am significantly tired I use a very different vocabulary, in in writing, word, and even texting. (Don't worry, that vocabulary does not include cussing. I could never pull that off, even drowsy.) Another friend at one point in my life (the days of sleepovers and ever-present giggling) informed me of the fact that I talk in my sleep. This has been recorded on a number of occasions, the most recent being when I held a conversation with my friend Shelayne in her Logan apartment at 3:00 in the morning last October. I do not know what we discussed, but it was probably quite awesome, as all conversations with me are.

April 2010 Video

I like making these. Here is my video for last month. Enjoy!

If you like it, please comment. I feed off of comments, in much the same way I feed off of pineapple or Cheetos (both of which have been on my food list today). They are all amazing and bring solace to my soul.
Shameless comment fishing? Yes that is what that was. But since when have I been known to have shame?

Bucks & Ducks

The Buck girls, (better known as Lindz's family) went to the Farmers Market yesterday. My mom needed to purchase gardening shoes, and some fertilizer for our yard. (Turkey poop!! Does wonders for the dirt, apparently. Poop and dirt are good friends.) Though this errand could've been a momentary thing, we hit a distraction. They were small and yellow and fuzzy and AMAZING.

I think I took about 60 pictures of baby ducks. Pretty sure. Yeah, there were a few baby bunnies and chicks thrown in, which were also pretty great, but chicks are mean to each other and the bunnies were hard to see in their cage. Ducks ran around in circles and tumbled over each other clumsily and tried to fly with their little nubby wings. I think I might be obsessed with baby ducks. They are all now my friends.

Oh, and no, it didn't smell great. Also, despite what this post might imply, I do not wish to own a duck. Babies are cute, but adult ducks are less exciting. I'd rather have a puppy. Please send me a puppy.

Chicken-Fried Knowledge

Finals has this thing about completely ruining your thought processing skills. It's time for me to jump back. But there is a problem: I have NO IDEA what to write about. My brain isn't working. I'm practically comatose, sitting in the corner and drooling while I watch everyone else and their 'existing', or whatever it's called. So, to jump start my brain, I am going to expound my post-finals knowledge. Read and learn.
