Molten Chocolate Cake

Tonight I made a new cake.

In the beginning I dropped the bowl I had the egg yolks in into the mix of butter and chocolate. There was some glass on glass action so it made quite a noise. Jake looked up from the couch and I told him we could just pretend like I was a domestic diva. No harm to the recipe at that point, and really that was the only hitch.

They turned out great. Little individual chocolate cakes with a chocolate center that oozes out when you cut the first bite with your fork. I was proud.

I wish I could make them for everyone. That's it, come to Oklahoma...where the wind comes sweepin' down the plains.
Where the wavin' wheat
can sure smell sweet when the wind come right behind the rain.
Every night my honey, Lem and I
Sit alone and talk
and watch the hawk
makin' lazy circles in the sky
Oh we know we belong to the land (yes sir)
and the land we belong to is grand
and when we say HEY
A yipee-o-i-ay (Yow)
You know we're sayin'
You're doin' fine Oklahoma

I'm also proud that I know the song. I sang it to a lot of people in Arizona. I'm sorry you missed it.

Hot Diggity

My favorite water is Sam's Choice. I like that the 20-pack is like $3.89 and that it's $5.00 for two 10-packs.

My favorite flower shoes smell like they've just been fertilized.

My nails are doing this flaking thing that they've never done before. Only my index fingers.

Why are they called index and pointer fingers?

I like that I still have daisy smiley faces.

I believe in the goodness of humanity after my pink pouch was returned with every single form of identification I have intact...especially since it was found in a different parking lot than where I lost it.

I like how Dan Hosey just said Anywho about having to get pepper sprayed.

My personal lip preference is red, though I usually wear light pink gloss.

Light is something I'm fond of.

A quote I came across

"When it comes to leaders we have, if anything, a super abundance -- hundreds of Pied Pipers ... -- ready and anxious to lead the population. They are scurrying around, collecting consensus, gathering as wide an acceptance as possible. But what they are not doing, very notably, is standing still and saying, "This is what I believe. This I will do and that I will not do. This is my code of behavior and that is outside it. This is excellent and that is trash.' There is an abdication of moral leadership in the sense of a general unwillingness to state standards...
Of all of the ills that our poor ... society is heir to, the focal one, it seems to me, from which so much of our uneasiness and confusion derive, is the absence of standards. We are too unsure of ourselves to assert them, to stick by them, if necessary in the case of persons who occupy positions of authority, to impose them. We seem to be afflicted by a widespread and eroding reluctance to take any stand on any values, moral, behavioral, esthetic."
