okay, so I don't think I have ever posted a comment, I read this at work and mostly I try to work, and end up feeling guilty after reading, so I don't take the time to post anything, but....
*I am so totally with you on the Swingline! They ROCK
*Grey's really upset me. I had dreams on Sunday night about Denny and about Izzy getting fired. Last night, I was too exausted from crying over the show to dream.
*Creme Brule is so cool! I got a kitchen torch as a gift recently and now I can make the yummy stuff without using my hubby's huge torch!

Questions 25 and 46: Periwinkle (or Burnt Umber?) and definitely the Beatles.

I made Deborah switch over in the middle of Grey's to watch the Appprentice where the quiet serious smoldering brunette hot chick got fired - but now you told me the ending anyway.

I have about four Swingline's at home - one embossed with my alma mater's identity when I was a grad student.

Swingline ROCKS.

I LOOOOVED the comparisons of normal. Very creative and funny.

I'm going to need some more information about the Smore cookies, please.

Anonymous: Welcome to the fray!

I have been known to throw my body over my Swingline stapler to save it from certain doom at the hands of my coworkers.

I called Denny dying, but I think it was sort of cheap how they gave us hope. And Alex picking Izzy up to comfort her while she clutched at Denny's dead body? Geez. My worst fears came alive on that screen.

I can be BRIBED with Creme Brule. Such is my addiction.

Rock: Poor Hoop. The episode really did drag in the middle. He stuck with it for me though. Ok, so MAYBE I coaxed him with cookies.

Swinglines are the office equipments of Gods. Have you ever seen "Office Space?"

Arabella: I bought some Smore cookie dough off a coworker's kid. They're Otis Spunkmeyer. But I'd love to find a recipe for them.

Also, if you're interested, email me a reminder and I'll send you my mint chocolate cookie recipe. They taste like the girl scout cookies. Mmmmmm.

I think I am the only human alive who didn't watch Grey's last night.

At 16 May, 2006, Blogger EE said...

Yes Amanda, you were. LOL J/T ;)

Is your name really Cristen? I was talking to my husband last night about how we *had* to watch all three hours of GA last night so that I could dish w/ you today. He asked your name and I'm like, uh Tink. LMAO

At 16 May, 2006, Anonymous TB said...

You and I could totally share wardrobes - same height and weight, same shoe size, same hips.
If only I had your rapier wit.

At 16 May, 2006, Blogger mama_tulip said...

I didn't watch it either! I don't watch the show. ;)

Jello wrestling? Awwwwesome. LOL.

And puppy's breath? Really? Um, ew. LOL. Sorry. Ew.

At 16 May, 2006, Blogger Tink said...

Amanda B: You don't NEED to watch it. We'll dish it all so you don't have to!

EE: Lmao. Yup, that's my name. Tink sort of sounds like the name of some candy stripper...er striper. Haha. I guess it could work both ways.

TB: Well I wish I had your eloquence... And your gorgeous curls. So we're even. ;)

Mama T: I also like boxing and the smell of gasoline.

So are you saying that you are abnormal? Or do you just live in a different, alternate normal world?

I've never watched a single second of Grey's. I don't watch network shows because I don't want to get hooked on any of them.

At 16 May, 2006, Blogger Chris said...

I love your "My Normal" - heh.

I'm going to have to toss in random sex words on ye olde blog to spice up my search terms, obviously.

All's I can say about the young doctors on GA is this: They paid all that money for their expensive medical degrees, but they all seem to have flunked Relationships 101! Ahhh but then if they had passed, there wouldn't be any drama now would there? I've never watched a show that could so infuriate me one moment and reduce me to tears the next...all in one episode!

Creme brulee? One word - YUM!!

PS - My word verification is rsjvm...raspberry jam?

I got a paper cut on the church bullentin the usher handed me at church on Sunday. I so wanted to cuss! :o)

At 17 May, 2006, Blogger mrspao said...

I have a Swingline stapler too - it was my mum's! I have to know - is there really a cake batter icecream!!?

At 17 May, 2006, Blogger Jay said...

I'm sorry you poked yourself in the eye. That's painful AND embarrassing. I hope you recovered from both quickly, no unsightly bruising and whatnot.

At 17 May, 2006, Blogger DebbieDoesLife said...

Its a stapler people - really not worthy of worship. Now, a good paperclip....

I am the one other person on the planet who does not watch Grey's Anatomy either. I find Meredith way too whiney. I am the only whiner allowed in the room at a time!

Creme Brulee! I could eat, slather and bth in this food of the Gods!

The bowflex grandma's kinda hot. But notice, we never see her really close up. For all we know, she could have hit the wall years ago.
