So I made a thing and it was good. The problem is, now I want more.
At work, they kept making this "Bark" which is just melted chocolate but in ways that looks cute. SO, I had an idea. I have this weird addiction to Kinder Eggs. They are amazing.
I wanted to try to recreate the amazing treasure of a Kinder Egg so I melted white chocolate chips and slathered them onto a cookie sheet, then froze it. Then I melted milk chocolate and slathered it on the white chocolate and froze it again. Then I ate it and it was GOOD.
It needs a little bit of adjustment for the thickness of the white chocolate, but overall I am clearly a culinary genius. I would show you a picture, but as I already said, I ate it already. Whoopsies.
Highly recommend to all. Unless you are trying to eat better (as I am) then it isn't greatest idea.
What did you spend your night doing? I bet it wasn't designing a T-shit with Bob Ross' face on it for your boyfriend. If it was, please email me I think we would be friends.
I will admit I messed up the first attempt. Note to self: Always buy dark transfer packages, you will almost always be making black shirts.
A little tip for anyone who has chronic insomnia (Crystal, I am looking right at you). Put on Bob Ross (Now on Netflix) before bed. He is super soothing and also kind of strange but in a weird dad way. He speaks nonsense and makes paintings that make me REALLY upset because in 30 minutes he accomplishes something I would never be able to recreate. But it is quite soothing and makes me want to pull out the old oil paintings and see what I can accomplish.
Dave and I have vowed to have a Bob Ross paint night in a couple weeks. I will let you know how that goes.

Because of the stupid basement flood that was horribly inconvenient, the world of insurance has granted me a silver lining. For once, something goes okay for me. I get to redecorate THREE rooms. Kitchen, bathroom, and the guest bedroom. The Kitchen and bathroom are mostly just tiles, but the bedroom I get to paint as well, so I was thinking, why don't I try to think of a new theme to have a really unique space that everyone will want to stay in. I mean, I will let very few, because most humans are gross obviously, but you get the point.
Pet Hair ChiC
Really classy linens just coated in a solid layer of dog hair. Maybe even some llama hairs and emu feathers that I will have to source from local farms.
Rustic Robot Vacation
Take everything you love from modern robotics, beach vacation homes, and rustic farm houses and mash it up into one super room. Who doesn't want a canoe hanging from the ceiling made of sprockets and gears? Or a wooden frame of a robot holding a teacup?
What about having a room filled with all the kinds of things a grandma would knit and craft? But like... TO THE EXTREME! So where you would think there would be one cross stitch picture, THERE IS AN ENTIRE MURAL! or where there should be one embroidered pillow, THE ENTIRE MATTRESS IS MADE OF NEEDLE POINT! Or what about a knitted throw blanket? NOPE EVER WALL HAS KNITED DRAPES COVERING ALL SURFACES! Whatever you can do to make it appear as your grandma hasn't slept in 45 years.
Now, I live with another human. We tend to have different opinions on style sometimes, so what in we just put a line right down the middle. Custom make all our bedding so its 50% one style and 50% the other. Half the room will be painted Dave's choices and half will be mine. EVERYONE WINS!
New York City Subway Station
Posters with ripped corners advertising the latest radio show hosts, photos of guitar players, everything will smell distinctly of urine, and the linens will be itchy with random spots that are crunchy for reasons no one ever wants to think about.
When your brain feels cloudy, the best thing to do is a craft. At least for me. Want to see what I did today? GOOD. Because I am going to show you.
So, that is what I did today. I am pretty much in love with them and am going to make more and maybe reposition them once I have a complete set. If anyone who doesn't know me comes into my house is just going to have no idea what is going on.
