In which i swelter in Vermont


I find it ironic that I’m up in Vermont and I’m sweltering. Well, not right this minute because It’s just 10 in the morning but yesterday I thought I was going to die. I mean, I know I’m from the south but we have air conditioning and I certainly don’t know how these Northerners deal with 80 degree weather without air conditioning. Both Andie and I were dying yesterday.

So, let’s just hop right into all the Northern news: remember I wrote that post about how Allison hadn’t cleaned that Breville Panini Press in over a year and it was just sitting there on the floor. Well, you guessed it, it’s still sitting in the EXACT spot and it’s STILL NOT CLEANED. I took a picture for your viewing pleasure and Allison hemmed and hawed and said she was going to get to it but I think i’ll just clean it by myself.

Then, Allison just bought a Ninja from the QVC. Now I didn’t even know people actually bought stuff from the QVC but apparently they do and Allison has had the Ninja for a year and never even used it (shocking i know). She bought the Ninja book “Pulse it Up” along with it and the logline is “your guide to unlock The Power of Food” and I had fun yesterday unlocking that power. By the way, in case you didn’t know a Ninja is sort of a food processor/blender combo.

As a matter of fact, the book is divided up into categories including; Antiinflammatory, immune boost, mental boost, relaxation and stress relief, anti-aging, detoxify and manage weight, digestion and energy boost. I had a good time yesterday making fun of all the recipes and the combinations of ways that I could unlock the power of my food.

Nonetheless, this morning i got up and made my daily milkshake with the Ninja and lo and behold, it worked and Allison had never used it before. It was a marvel that it worked at all after sitting in a cabinet for a year.

Yesterday I informed Allison that I was going “to pop my ninja cherry” today which Andie thought was inappropriate but you know me (or do you) and I never watch what I say.

Andie just walked in a critiqued this post and the blog and everything I’ve ever said and done and wondered why I just didn’t write about my “tier” system that I’ve come up with and apparently dissed everyone with yesterday. NOTE TO READER: I despise Andie

Also apparently there is an exhibit of “Painted Catamounts” in downtown Bennington and Allison says we NEED to see it so this day could be looking up … or Not!!

Wish me luck.

  1. I bought a food mixer (with blender) for my 40th and haven’t used it since September. I plan on doing this week as long as it still works that is…..

    Wow. You’re going to have to wash the panini machine with the Ninja. At the same time as the ninja. Yeah. You know what I mean. All but one of the times we’ve been to Vermont have been swelteringly hot. That one made it all make sense, but the other times were AWFUL because nobody believes in A/C up there.

    Well, if someone is going to pop your cherry, I think that a ninja is a great idea. You’ll never knew they were even there.
