I simply should not be left alone with the remote control.

Terrible, irreparable things happen when I am left to my own devices.

For example, that time this past weekend when I thought binge-watching the entire Making a Murderer series in one sitting would be a grand idea………………………….

By the end of it, I was paralyzed with fear. I practically squeezed the stuffing out of the throw pillow I was clinging to. I could not move from the couch. Perhaps because my butt had sunk so far into one little crevice that the couch started to believe I was a part of it so it started to form around me, but that’s beside the point. Why didn’t anyone tell me how terrifying this show is?! I really thought I could handle real-life crime/mystery drama, you know? Like, I thought I was strong enough.

    Are zucchini frites anything like french fried taters? I like them pretty well. Oh, and did you know, if you put roast beef and gravy on french fried taters it’s called pootie-tang? I really like that too. I’ve heard people eat french fried taters with mustard or mayonnaise. I like ’em with ketchup OK. But them pootie-tang fries is my favorite. You ever make any of them?
