Married People Conversations

October 11, 2011

Me: Oh my god, look at the moon!

Hubby: Yeah, it’s really pretty, especially through the the trees like that.

Hubby: Except…

Me: Yeah?

Hubby [dropping into a Peter Lorre voice]: I feel myself…changing!

Me: I will slap you right in the face if you turn into a werewolf.

Hubby [looking at his hands in horror, whispers]: Oh god no, not here…

Me: You are such a dork.

Hubby: I need blood! [leers at me] Female blood!

Me: You get no blood. We’re, like, two blocks from the restaurant. You get lo mein.

Hubby [dropping the creepy voice]: Yeah, okay. I guess that’ll work.

Odd Signs and Adverts

April 8, 2011

I find that I’ve been collecting interesting signs and advertisements on my phone camera. I thought I’d share them.

We’re Not Racist.

If you buy her expensive stuff, she won’t sleep around.

Add 1c of sugar and 3 tsps of calories.

Other sodas had ingredients like carbonated water, phosphoric acid, potassium benzoate, citric acid. This one seemed a little…vague. Seen in the Roseville, MN Noodles & Co.

That’s because you don’t measure time in ounces.

The Emperor’s New Dinner

February 28, 2011

Soooo…here I am making dinner*. I’ve got some tilapia, I’m not really sure what I want to do with it** and so I’m looking for a jazzy new recipe online. I’m a very visual person when it comes to recipes – I want to see the finished product before I decide if I’m going to invest time and ingredients, hopes and dreams and all that. I’m thinking some wine, some capers and I come across this:

What the… Food photo cheat! And then I realized that it’s a Weight Watcher’s recipe, so maybe it’s some sort of new-fangled diet tilapia meal in which the portions are really, really, really small.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here’s how the real dinner turned out. I ended up throwing some garlic, salt, pepper, dried chives, “italian herbs”, red wine, olive oil, lemon juice, capers, green olives and  white onion in a bag, tossing it around a bit, then throwing the whole mess into the oven at 350F for 20 minutes. Nom nom nom. I made broccoli and cheater-rific Trader Joe’s pre-made risotto as sides. Nom nom nom.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

* Cuz if there’s one thing we young things know how to do, it’s make some dinner.

**I mean, I know what I want to do with it; I want to eat it. I’m just not sure how I want to prepare it.
