I talked about Dog Shaming in this post and have often wondered if people had to walk around with a sign saying what wrong they had done if less people would do the stupid and hurtful things they do? For some I would assume yes, others sadly it probably wouldn’t deter them in the least.
While I am of course a HUGE Pinterest fan… other than the political b.s. that creeps in there as of late then number one thing on Pinterest I hate is this quote: “Go ahead. Judge me. Just remember to be perfect the rest of your life.” And I’ll tell you why I hate it…because the people that post it that I know in real life are the idiots who are being judged. Usually for pretty good reasons.
But I don’t call that judging…I call that moron detection. So no worries…I’m not judging a single person. But I will say that my moron detector does go off a lot around certain people.
And one does not need to be perfect just because someone else sucks as being a person. I don’t have to be perfect just because you don’t want people to judge you for doing crappy things. Don’t want to be judged? Don’t do crappy things. Problem solved. I’m sure I can be judged for lots of things (who cares):
I have a GIANT pile of laundry in the middle of my bedroom that is so high it could show up on a topical map. And sometimes I have to do the sniff test because they dirty and clean clothing mix.
There are dirty dishes in the sink. They have been there for two days. They are not getting done today.
I do not separate darks, colors, etc….every now and then I will separate out the whites.
I often write dr. offices that hound me over small amounts of money small checks. Example: I owed $7.32 to a dr. office. I knew I was going to owe them more since I just went back so I waited. But they sent me a mean note instead. So I send them a check for $.17. Then one for $.54. And so on….for three months until I reached the $7.32.
I don’t bother to tell MDP that the dog licked my mouth when he goes to kiss me.
I’m going to buy Magic Mike on DVD.
I watched Step Up 3 the other day…though I did fast forward through 90% of it. Wow, was that bad.
I ate the whole pan (minus one) of these.
These are a take on Avalanche bars which have nothing to do with pumpkin normally. They are normally peanut butter and certainly don’t have cinnamon flavored marshmallows in them…but hey it’s fall and I had a little pumpkin that needed to be used up! You can find the marshmallows here Kraft Jet Puffed Cinnamon Bun Marshmallow, 8oz (Pack of 2) and the caramel bits here Kraft, Caramel Bits, 11oz Bag (Pack of 3) .
Avalanche Pumpkin Bars
12 oz bag of White Chocolate Chips
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
¼ tsp. pumpkin pie spice
3 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup mini marshmallows
1/2 cups Cinnamon Bun Marshmallows (use regular if you can’t find)
1/4 cup milk chocolate chips
¼ cup caramel bites (if you can’t find you can use more chocolate chips)
Lightly grease a 8-x8-inch pan
In microwave-safe bowl pour in white chips and heat on 50% power for 1 minute. Stir and continue in 30 second increments until chips are melted.
Combine the pumpkin and spice with the melted chips and add the krispies.
Let cool approximately 15 – 20 minutes stirring every 5 minutes or so to help cool.
Add the marshmallows and the chocolate chips and caramel bites and stir to combine.
Pour mixture into the prepared pan and spread evenly, pressing lightly with the back of your spoon, but do not compact too much, otherwise they will get hard.
When the bars are completely cooled cut into squares and enjoy.
