Does anyone know anything about donating blankets and sheets to animal shelters or vets? That’s on my giant list of things to do, and I really need to get started on all of those tasks now, because I essentially have two weeks to get all of my shit straight.


Moving Updates!

Friendly reminder that I’m moving in three weeks. If you or anyone you know is in the Columbia, SC area, please consider sharing this post so that way I can help cover my moving expenses. I’m selling all sorts of things, and when I do the yard sale next week, I’ll also post photos of all of the small things that I would like to get rid of (and that are better able to ship for anyone interested but not in Columbia).

Other updates: Chris moved into the apartment yesterday. All of the pictures are really nice and I’m especially excited about the kitchen. I have a huge porch and kitchen and we’ll also have an office so that he can work and I can store my books. I’m going to leave for the apartment right after Mother’s Day weekend and drive through cities like Nashville and St. Louis so Chris and I might do some fun things on the way to Lincoln. But I’m definitely ready for this all to be over and to be settled. This process has taught me a lot about moving and how much the process is not fun.


Baking peanut butter cookies with Spinosaurus

The other day Spinosaurus dropped by for a visit. It was a great surprise to see him because he’s usually so busy, he doesn’t have time to hang out here the way he used to. I was just about to make some peanut butter cookies and he asked if he could help. As you can see, he was a great assistant! Hopefully he will come by more often and help with other projects in the kitchen and garden.

These peanut butter cookies are slightly chewy and coated in a thin layer of sugar, perfect for dunking in a glass of milk or your morning espresso. I’ve been baking them forever, but yesterday I realized it is more fun to make them with a friend. A recipe from Better Homes and Gardens.


  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour


Beat peanut butter and butter with electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar and brown sugar, baking soda, and salt. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour. Cover and refrigerate dough about 1 hour or until easy to handle.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Shape dough in 1-inch balls. Place balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten the cookies by making crisscross marks with fork tines or dinosaur footprint, dipping utensil in sugar between flattening each cookie. Bake about 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Transfer to wire racks. Cool. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

Share with friends.

Omg baking with dinosaurs

didn’t the goblet of fire cover this

because how else would Ireland win but krum catch the snitch

actually in prisoner of Azkaban, didn’t Gryffindor need a certain amount of points to proceed to the finals, and that’s why Oliver Wood told Harry to wait until they had scored a certain amount of points before he caught the snitch?

Catching the snitch ends the game and is worth the most points, but it doesn’t guarantee a win. Just like tumblr user samuel-vimes said, Krum caught the snitch at the World Cup Finals, but Ireland still won in the end because they still had more points.

Also the way the ranking system works in the international quidditch league, and I assume at Hogwarts, according to JK Rowlings new reveal, is that teams are awarded a certain amount of points based on the amount of points a team wins by and thats how they are ranked against each other. Rowling said that a win by 150 points = 5 points, 100 points = 3 points, 50 points = 1 point, and a winner of a tie is whoever caught the snitch the quickest. So theoretically a team that only catches the snitch but wins by a margin of less than 50 points is awarded no points and might as well of not caught thats why Wood told Harry to wait until they were up a certain number of points in order to increase their overall ranking and win the cup.

And gosh, a good chunk of you people claim to hate sports.

That last comment though.

I actually believe artists and scientists think very similarly. Complex, abstract thought? They both have that down. It’s all about where that thinking takes you after that.

Words cannot describe how much I love this post.

People always get really weirded out when I say that I love physics for the same reason I love creative writing. They both make sense of the way that the world operates.

This is how you know they’re actually brothers.

this is my favourite scene in the movie i’m not even kidding

I love this scene the most, because Loki is somewhat trying to help and Thor is just done.

Brother video game arguments lol

Chris and I playing video games. Except I’m Thor and he’s Loki in this situation.

Nicole of the Cake Haute Couture bakery in Bunbury, Western Australia made this beautifully geeky classic arcade game cake at the request of Dimity, a bride-to-be whose fiance, Stephen, loves old school games.

Each side of the three-tiered square cake features a different game - Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Tetris and Frogger. The very top is decorated with a Pong screen with the score depicting Stephen’s age. The board on which the cake sits features an edible joystick, buttons, and coin slot.

Nicole has been making custom wedding cakes since 2007. Visit the Cake Haute Couture website to check out more of her wonderful creations.
