and thank you, machmed, for pointing me to calaeno, who pointed me to this gem, which brought out a response by littlebluedog and another gem.
all brought together, brings you these three pics:
i have been laughing so hard and trying not to laugh LOUDLY, so as to not wake the roommies. (what ARE they doing asleep at 130, anyway?!?) this has resulted in what probably looks/sounds like me sitting at my monitor and sobbing quietly.
been watching cooking shows all morning, which has resulted in me feeling highly insuperior, as i've never been a good cook, have almost none of the utensils that they use, and even less of the food.
