I moved !

Hi there !

In my continuing efforts to become better at things and have more control over what i’m doing, i’ve made the move to my own domain. Therefore, my blog has moved to:

Http://www.myadultbrain.com/

Please update your bookmark if you have any and subscribe to my new blog. It’s still a bit under construction, but i figured i’d give you the address anyway, since i won’t be doing updates here anymore.

See you on the other side !

KROD: The New Year

it’s that time of the month again.. It’s Karaoke time ! This month I’m very fortunate to host the wonderful Daniella! Make sure you check out her blog at http://www.daniellarobin.com/

So it is a new year, maybe the end of the world as we know it, but KROD is still alive and kicking and when I found out that this month pretty much anything goes I knew right away which song I was going to pick.Too Much Food by Jason Mraz is pretty much my theme song. The opening line is my Twitter bio and it is my jam. It is my song! So what better song for the New Year then the theme song of well ..me? Thanks Edwin for being my gracious host and I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!

Ten on Tuesday: The 2012 saga begins!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Even though we started a new year, it’s still Tuesday and that means it’s time for…

Ten On Tuesday

1. What did you get for Christmas?

A new hoodie 😀 and in the weeks leading up to Christmas I got myself a new phone and an iPad, so I guess you could see those as gifts as well, even though I payed for them myself.

2. Have you taken down your Christmas decorations?

Not yet, but one of these days I’m taking it down.

3. What did you do for New Years Eve?

I watched some tv at my parents house, ate A LOT of food and got annoyed by the fireworks.

4. Do you like accents?

YES! I’m pretty fascinated by accents and dialects. If I were to talk to you I’d probably try to figure out where your accent is from and tell you why I like it so much. In a non-creepy way of course (well, most of the time)

5. What kind of television do you have?

Technically, I don’t own a tv. I have a projector that projects on my wall. Which is pretty epic, because the image is HUGE!

6. Did you make any changes at the beginning of 2012?

Yes, quite a few. I’ve even joined the 12 changes in 2012 program. More about that in the morning, so stay tuned 🙂

7. What’s the last book you read and do you recommend it?

“read me” by Peter deWolf and yes, I.d definitely recommend it.

8. Do you stay current on celebrity gossip?

Only when I’m bored. So yes, I’m pretty up to date ( I travel by train a lot and get bored easily 😉 )

9. Do you know the words to Bohemian Rhapsody? Gangstas Paradise? Fresh Prince of Bel-Air?
Almost,
no,
Hell Yeah!

10. What is your favorite educational television show?

How Do They Do It? On discovery channel. I could watch that show for hours and hours. And top gear, but I’m not sure that’s considered to be educational.

Master Chef?

Hi !

First of all, Merry Christmas to you and your family ! May your holiday season be filled with happyness, laughter and of course Gifts 🙂

On to the moral of this story.  Because tomorrow/today is christmas, my parents are coming over for lunch. Since I kinda wanted to impress them (my cooking-skills are notoriously poor) i decided i wanted to serve them home-made Chicken-soup. I figured this wouldn’t be very difficult to make yet still give the impression that i made an effort.

So, i looked up a recipe and bought all the stuff i needed in the store. The recipe told me to get a pan of boiling water, insert the chicken, and let it boil for about 2 hours. So I boiled a pan of water, threw in the chicken, set a timer, and went about my other business (cleaning the house :p )

After 1,5 hours i decided to go check up on it. This is what i found:

 

 

 

 

 

So, all the water that was supposed to be my soup had disappeared. So that’s a #FAIL.

Good thing I know myself pretty well, so i had a few backup plans. I got myself a different pan, boiled some water, added some blocks of chicken broth and vegetables and Voila, one pan of soup 🙂

I actually tried making something else too, which – so far – has worked out OK:

 

 

 

 

 

I just need to pop these in the oven once they get here, so that should be fine 🙂

Now, what do you think ? Am I Master Chef material ?

Jingle Bells.

3. Do you have a favorite band or singer that sings it especially awesome?
Nope, Anything but Justin Bieber. I just *really* don’t like Bieber

1. The Fault in our Stars by John Green
2. Name of our star by Maureen Johnson
3. Anything by Peter de Wolf

6. Do you hunt deer?
No. Mostly because thats illegal.

7. Have you started Christmas shopping? Are you completely finished?

8. Did you shop on Black Friday? What was the best deal you got?
I didn’t. I checked out some of the deals online but honestly, i was pretty disappointed.

9. What’s one holiday tradition your family has?
There’s isn’t any. Usually we just get together (just me and my parents) to have dinner or something. I hope to one day have a family of my own to start traditions with.

10. How many blogs do you read? Do you subscribe/unsubscribe often or do you purge every once in a while?
Not as much as i’d like to. But i’m trying to get in a few blogs a day. But right now i mostly read stuff that shows up on twitter. I have google reader, but i rarely use it. Maybe when i get more into blogging i’ll start using it more often. But i hate that i can’t comment from google reader, so i have to click to the site anyway in order to leave a comment.

Happy Hump Day !

Even though in most parts of the world, it is no longer Wednesday, i figured i’d make this post anyway 🙂

Welcome to Hump Day ! For those of you who don’t know, Hump Day is just a different way of saying Wednesday. Congratulations, you made it this far, now to just tackle the rest of the week and then there’s time to relax during the weekend. Unless, of course, you have to work during the weekend. In that case.. ehm.. sorry. But good luck !

Hump day is usually the crappiest day of the week. The previous weekend is now so far away that the effects have worn off by now and by now the realization has hit that the next weekend is still two looooong days away.

Som in order to provide some motivation to get through the rest of the weekm i’m going to provide you with some things i found online that make me happy.  I hope this will provide some motivation for the remainder of the week.  Here goes:

1. Blackberry

 

2. Gabriel Iglesias – Stand Up Revolution

 

3. Slipknot vs. Justin Bieber MashUp.

 

That’s it for this week ! Maybe i’ll do this again some day. Leave a message in the comments to tell me what you think of my suggestions and tell me what makes you happy.
