These also showed up on one of the girls’ wings in honor of Valentine’s Day. It’s always a good idea to make a single advertisement for your buddy in the dorm to put up on your sister wing :). Just to clarify for those of you who may not have a sense of humor, this was a prank and a joke. It is funny :). These images have been slightly doctored to protect the innocent and the guilty.

Out of Eggs?

Last week, I had just returned from the store, had just started making butter horns, and had guests coming in an hour, when I realized I only had one egg and the recipe had called for 3. Yikes! What’s a girl to do? When I text-messaged one of my neighbors and didn’t hear back right away, I called my mom.

Jenn: Mom remember that stuff you gave me that you can substitute for eggs?

Mom: Yes.

Jenn: What do I do with it?

Mom: Dissolve 1 Tb. in 3 Tb of water for each egg.

Jenn: Thanks. What’s it called?

Mom: Flax meal.

Jenn: You are the best. Thanks, Mom

It worked! I’ve had it in coffee cake before, but it worked in my rolls. They were speckled, but they were delish and nutrish :). Just thought I would share this info. Flax meal lasts in the fridge forever, so it’s nice to have a little on hand for when you are baking and out of eggs.

Really? But it made me smile.

My One-sided Conversation Walking into Target the Other Night

Guy: Miss, you dropped something.
Me: Silently looking around to see what I dropped.
Guy: Your smile.
Me: Silently smiling and laughing
Guy: Look at that, a pickup with no hands.

RA Photo Shoot

I love my job, so much so that I don’t spend much time blogging. I see more to be done than I can possibly do. My 500th post came and went without me even knowing because the last post was scheduled months ago :). Life is full but I wouldn’t have it any other way. My absolute favorite part of the job is the people I get to work with both in King Hall and in the dorm. Working with my RAs is probably my greatest joy. Here are the pictures from a recent photo shoot: the good, the outtakes, and the purposefully silly.

Sweazy is Safe!

Sweazy can sleep soundly because tonight I passed my Community Emergency Response Training. We had an emergency earthquake simulation at a Jr. High with many screaming victims. My personal favorites were the lady with the eyeball dangling from her socket or the kid with a pencil lodged in his head who handed me someone else’s amputated finger :). To commemorate this historic event, I’m posting a pic of Summer and I fighting a fire in training a few weeks ago.
