Ok-today's blog post is dedicated to Megan Day. Megan is actually a student of mine. She is really nerdy and I like that. Megan always sits in the front row, has an eagerness that is infectious, and is wicked smart. Oh and another thing--she looks exactly like Julia Stiles. I mean exactly. She will not share books with people because she thinks that once she reads the words--they are hers to keep. Weird. She aspires to be a writer. She'll succeed.
So--today has been very interesting. My hours got cut at OCC for spring. I think that losing classes just reinforces my decision to pursue a new career. BRUXIE just opened in Orange. Um--what BRUXIE is is delicious waffle sandwiches. They have sweet and savory. I recommend the buttermilk fried chicken or the PB&J. See-instead of bread--it's fresh waffles. FRESH WAFFLES. I know--it is very exciting.
About 13 years ago I met a women in San Francisco. We met at a club, had a fling, and moved on. She found me on facebook. I've often wondered what happened to her so it was really cool to get her message. I really do like facebook. I think it's so cool to reconnect with people.
Ok so the comedy stuff is going pretty well. Winning the competition finals in a few weeks would be an awesome way to get things moving faster. If anyone knows of any comedy clubs or ways that I can get some stage time--please let me know.
This morning in one of my classes we were discussing food and culture. When they asked me about the foods that I grew up with I told them about casseroles. Everyone pretended to be disgusted but secretly they all wanted one. My favorite casserole is tater-tot. It's like a white trash version of shepherd's pie. Here is the recipe:
1 lb ground beef
1 can cream of mushroom soup (the Iowa state spice)
1 bag of tater tots
Some people add corn or peas or green beans. Never add lima beans--that's nasty,
Mix cooked ground beef, corn or peas, and soup. Put tater tots on top. Bake until tater tots are brown and crispy. That's it. Some people like to add cheese but I think that is overkill. Enjoy this dish with a nice iceberg lettuce salad with ranch dressing and croutons and you have a true Midwestern feast. It's delicious.
Ok so it's 4:00 and I am already tired. have to teach tonight til 10. I'll post more later. Love to you all. SEND COMMENTS PEOPLE. I won't keep writing unless I know peeps are reading:)
