lot of filling out paperwork, scanning things in, sitting and looking at the wall, today.
I kindof want to sleep all day tomorrow and next week, for that matter.
you would think I'd be in a better mood, eating dinosaurs for lunch...

well, that makes three jobs applied for/ inquired about, those two and the fabric store.
next up is showering and going to the mall to pick up applications at stores that are already built/ don't require online applications.
I'm really looking forward to mindless sales/etc. I'm more looking forward to steady income / not relying on money owed to me/ or having to stress out about things on a per project basis.

WARNING: I DO NOT ENJOY/ ENDORSE THIS RECIPE AS IS. shows potential. maybe.
* 3 tablespoons margarine
* 2 cups white sugar
* 3 egg yolks
* 3 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 tablespoon baking powder
* 1 cup milk
* 3 egg whites
* 6 bananas
* 2 tablespoons white sugar
* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch pan.
2. In a large bowl, mix together margarine and sugar until smooth. Mix in yolks. Stir in flour and baking powder alternately with the milk.
3. In another bowl, beat egg whites until doubled in volume. Fold beaten whites into the dough. Spread into a greased 9 x 12 inch pan. Slice bananas over the top of the dough. In a small bowl, mix together the 2 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon; sprinkle over bananas.
4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow to cool.
I read it over in my head, and I thought "yeah, this is going to need chocolate chips."
(for anyone not in my area/family/at my house often, we keep fresh bananas around, and they don't all get eaten, so, when there are 4-6 left, and they're starting to go bad, it's banana bread/cake time. the mix i usually use leaves a little to be desired, so, I throw chocolate in.)
I'd never used this one before, and thought I should just follow it the first time, but, ugh! it's just sugarbread with fruit on top.
I imagine fresher bananas would have improved it, along with whole milk instead, but, it's just. bleeeh. I would not make it again without thinking a lot on improving it by maybe blending the fruit in or adding chocolate.

well, now that that's sorted, I'd like to never see another mixing spoon in my life, and while I'm on that topic, I should like to forget about knives, bananas, flour, and, my hands.
I had to hold the pan with my arms underneath and i still was afraid i'd drop it between the counter and the oven.

Decided on Black Elk Speaks. In bed earlier than usual. Feverish + chills and stomach ache. The print in the other books was a bit small, and this one is required for class. The first 10 pages are also more interesting.
