For Florida anyway. I know, I know. Anyone remotely north of the state is laughing at us for freaking out about flurries. Here's some perspective: It officially snowed in Jacksonville, FL just about 20 years ago. Seeing as I'm 24, and I was 4 or 5 at the time, I think this amazing cold weather is kinda an anniversary of some kind.

I like to pretend that old saying "When Hell freezes over" applies in this case. I have this great scene where Jesus and a few of his closest Angel friends somehow punked Lucifer that winter.

J-man: Dudes, I have the BEST idea this year.
Angel-Dude: Is it better than the pig thing?
Angel-Bro: Oh! Oh! Man! Dude, man! I. Freaking. LOVE. The pig thing. Holla for some Hell-Pit BBQ!
J-man: ...No. Better. We're making it SNOW in Florida!
Angel-Dude: ...
Angel-Bro: ...
J-man: It's genius, I know. Lucifer won't see this coming. This is going to be, wait for it .... LEGENDARY!!1!
Angel-Bro: ...Then we can grab some pig at Sonny's, right?

Somehow, Jesus became Neil Patrick Harris in "How I Met Your Mother" there. I'm not saying sorry, ha!

The next instance I can remember of extreme cold weather happened only about 5-6 years after that when it flurried. It was such an amazing moment that my elementary school stopped classes and let us go out and run around in the Trying Really Hard To Be Real Snow. It was a great ten minutes.

So, this year, 2010, with it's insane cold weather snap, J-man and his posse must be partying it up in remembrance of their totally awesome prank on Lucifer. Only, you know, Father-God didn't really approve of his party-hardy son changing weather patterns just for laughs, and only allowed J-man to flurry across Florida. Because Father-God still luls to himself that the prank worked all those years ago. He's a big softy, really.

In other news: My Kalua Brownie Car Cake was a smashing success!!

It was Nomed in under 10 mins. People wanted seconds! I feel proud and really happy K loved her cake.

Ok. Back to couch nesting and finishing the last episode of Being Human (I can safely say I love Russell Tovey. If I have to deal with him being a Ianto replacement to Jack, I can handle it. It's just creepy how much he can look like GDL sometimes. Russell is adorkable though)

I think the state of Florida relocated in my sleep.

According to the forecast the high for Saturday is 38. As in degrees. The Low? 29. And it's going to rain. I'm not sure that Central Florida is going to be able to handle the extreme weather about to hit us.

Still, at least we won't look like this (taken Thursday).

There's so much to do today! K's birthday is next week, but since that's on a Tuesday and no one can do anything in the middle of the week, we're having her party tonight. I'm cooking again! She wants chicken and rice, the meatballs I made for New Years, and I'm baking her cake.

I say baking, more like experimenting dangerously. The idea seems sound, but we'll see if it can be pulled off.

The idea:

Kalua Brownie Cake.

Wait for it.

In the shape of a car.

Watch out now! I have Pixar Cars sprinkles and I'm going to use them!! Oh, and the irony of a drunk driving joke has not surpassed me. I'm loling to myself quietly. I'll try and find a working camera to document the monster I'm about to go start making.

I swear to god.

My cat, Bendi, has a severe case of Bartonella that will not go away. I'm too broke to get her to the vet anytime before the Christmas holidays. She has an appetite, it hasn't left her, the problem is she starts to eat her food until it hurts her mouth and she runs away thinking the food attacked her. Which then you can find me holding her in front of her food bowl petting and coaxing her to eat it again. It usually works and I can walk away after 5 mins leaving her to eat on her own (until it hurts and she flees again)

Here's where I am officially a Pokemon Breeder: I was fed up with her not eating this morning. She looks like an alley cat while her sister is fluffing's really upsetting. I got back from Yoga with a renewed sense of purpose. I grabbed a cup of her dry cat food, threw it into a blender, added milk and water then popped it into the microwave. What was produced was a paste like substance that when cooled feels like meat.

I swear to god.

It took some coaxing to get her to eat it (at one point me literally pinning her and shoving it into her mouth. She's all bones, so it was pathetically easy). Once she ate a few mouthfuls she pigged out and at this moment I can hear her crunching away at the dry food. Thank the gods!!

I think I'm going to experiment with this food paste and see if I can make it like little chewy tablets. I'm pretty sure they're going to look *exactly* like the pellets Brock makes in the actual Pokemon show. Score!

Hey kids!

So I made it to class sorta on time. I also was gifted a parking ticket for my troubles. Boo. But, honestly... I should of had around 4 at this point since I've gotten away with parking this last week.

The movie we watched today isn't a favorite of mine. It's going to fall into that category of "Watched once, got the moral, please no more." I'm not certain if it is just this semester but the French are not getting any points with me. First was a mind-fuck of Godard (yes, yes he's brilliant, move along) and now there was this depressing movie about virginity. Ever seen "Fat Girl" dir. Catherine Breillat? I'm really torn on it. I can't say I liked it but then again it was a strong movie for the message it was giving: If men can 'practice' with all sorts of women before marriage, why can't women? Why are women not allowed to lose their virginity when men get made fun of for *not* losing it? Powerful stuff. The film made a good platform for the argument even if third of it is driving down a highway being scared by semi-trucks. No, really. Oh, and another third is watching a young girl fall for the most blatant lines given by a guy who had already admitted to just being horny. Ugh. Still, point made. Score for the film.

Dinner has been made and I am awesome for achieving it! I got a little adventurous in the kitchen by breading some chicken strips (never done before), boiling up some shell pasta, then adding a Cabernet Marinara from Newman's Own. It is DELICIOUS! I was feeling really great about the whole thing up until it came time to add the pasta sauce.

Which is when the glass jar's rim shattered as I unscrewed the lid. Glass, EVERYWHERE!

So now I'm sitting here waiting for another ep of True Blood to load chewing carefully because I just KNOW that one little sliver of glass made it into the shells.
