I think I should work backward in my timeline of Recent Events Of Interest To None But Myself.

Reduced-sugar Fruity Pebbles are the real deal, very yummy.  They must take the place of the Girl Scout Cookies - I believe at this point, my blood is just chocolate mint-flavored liquid.

I made

Donna's best-ever Taco Salad - good hot, cold, mixed together or layered perfectly

Note:  No matter how much of a gourmand you may be, DO NOT use lemon juice, use the concentrate.  The resulting lack of water will make your avocado layer super-tart and yummy!

Layer on platter or other large, flat surface (at least 12" wide):

Layer 1:  1 can of Refried Beans

Layer 2:  2-3 avocadoes, peeled and mashed (be sure they are ripe - soft and black - when buying) seasoned with garlic salt and lemon juice concentrate, to taste.  Mix and spread on bean layer.

Layer 3:  1 c. sour cream + 1/2 c. Miracle Whip + 1 envelope taco seasoning.  Mix and spread on avocado layer.

Top with 1 c. cheddar cheese + 1 c. other cheese (taco, colby-jack), black olives, shredded lettuce, green onions, and chopped tomato

Chill for one hour and serve with tortilla chips.  Yee-uummmy! which we'll be having for breakfast, lunch and dinner until we're sporking each other for the last bit.  :-9

I know some folks really love Bath and Body Works.  So do I, except I'm the

I am the world's pickiest person when it comes to toiletries, and nowhere does that apply more strongly than at BBW.  There are some scents there so noxious (Cucumber Melon?!) that I swoon at the very sight of the neon-green lotion.  Sometimes, the greeter attacks you with their latest scent, squirting and rubbing it into your hands while your *aiiieeee* echoes through your skull.

Today, however, was a different experience.  The greeter let me sniff the new scent first (cherry blossom, very sweet-y) and left me alone to browse.  I checked out the Almond face scrub and other various Pure Simplicity products (since [livejournal.com profile] madlorivoldmort has recently recommended some of the line).

Then, the greeter asked if I wanted to try this.  It's a chapped hand cleanser with aloe and jojoba, and it left my hands soft but not greasy (whee!).  Then I picked up Dr. Hiosous Quince Hand Lotion, which wasn't greasy either, or overly smelly. 

Yeah, I'm out a few bucks, and I have a new hand care regime.  *tosses Mary Kay Satin Hands kit*

I have been getting more and more excited about Book 6, specifically excited about what we're going to find out about Professor Snape.  I do plan to spend the release weekend with [livejournal.com profile] kirixchi and company, which should be great fun!  :) 

Right now, I'm satisfying my Snape fascination by reading lots of Snape!fic, from Pawn to Queen to If You Are Prepared and everything in between.  There's even a Snape/Luna fic out there.

What are you all looking forward to in HBP?

Sporking each other? Geez; I thought your journal was supposed to be kid-friendly.

When I clicked on the cut I thought you meant big beautiful woman shopper. I'm special like that. I hate all that fruity stuff. I used to wear it constantly in high school though. Now I just stick to Rice Flower and Shea for all my smelly good needs. I worship it a little actually.

Hey Babe, you know I'm looking forward to HBP for the fun and company of my hp-ohio crazies down in Wilimington :) But in the book I'm looking foward to more about the past, Harry's family on both sides, and I'm interested to see if Harry will be the character I expect he will since the end of OotP. He's not a kid anymore - if anything the death should have taught him is responsiblity for his actions. I'm also dying to see more kick-ass Minerva... like Battle!Minerva.. that would be so awesome... like in her family tartan or something, all Braveheart... blue face... oh man... I feel a fic coming on... and possibly some art...

I'm looking forward to all the new canon, but also I want to find out if I was right about the house elves and Sirius's motorcycle.
