Self-medication, and The Ting Tings.

So I'll be honest, Internet - I'm not having the best week ever. Nothing horrible has happened, more like a slow bleed of annoying events that suck all the joi de vivre right out of my normally happy self, making me want to slam doors and leave all my clothes out in a big mess and not let merging cars in on the highway and generally wear a big stupid pouty face.


To cope, I'm watching this. Oldie-but-a-goodie. A half-minute of unadulterated pleasure, courtesy of eBaum's World:

Also, if I weren't so damn mopey (and also if I weren't such a wimp about cold weather), I'd go see these people tonight. Me likey The Ting Tings, especially Katie White's quirky, London-y outfits! They take the stage at Emo's around midnight.

The Ting Tings - That's Not My Name

I'm with you. The cold blows. No way I'm standing at Emo's outside.

Aww, don't be sad. You should make smores! Smores always make me happy and is such a staying in activity, You can take the easy route by microwaving giant marshmallows for 10 seconds. They expand and deflate like a balloon. Yum!

I wanted to go but it was definitely sold out a long time ago. I should start buying tickets online like a normal person.

Homemade smores are a genius idea, you guys. I think I absolutely will do that.

Funny story: when I was a kid, my dad and I used to microwave Peeps - you know those Eastertime, chick or bunny-shaped marshmallow things? - and watch them become GINOURMOUS. They became, like, life-sized Peeps in the microwave. Which is just the funniest shit ever when you're 6.

We should make smores with heroine in them. Then, once we're all effed up on H, we can nuke a bunch of peeps and be like, "Whoa dude, are the peeps getting bigger or like is the microwave shrinking?"
