I love being right. I mean, I always am, but it just never gets old.

Some have said I’m psychic. By some I mean myself & one of my grandfather’s, but STILL! It’s been said.

I just have this uncanny ability to predict the future. Like, I dreamt about Mr. Rogers the night before he died. & I dreamt I was in the cast of Real World: Afghanistan & we found Osama Bin Laden & the NEXT DAY they found him. I can’t even make that up.

I also have the ability to predict when Bachelor couples will break up. *clears throat* Please revisit this post to hear my initial thoughts on this duo. These two did, indeed, announce their break up yesterday. Yawn. Give me a challenge, people.

So I guess all I really predict are deaths & breakups…. I’m stable, I swear.

    Yum! I love zucchini but not the cheese! I’ll have to try this with fake cheese or some other flavorful substitute, I’ll let you know when I do! This looks so delicious, I can’t wait ๐Ÿ™‚
