And once again.....

drac emu
....I had to cancel not one but TWO appointments today. Why? Because despite me repeatedly stressing how important it is to confirm the fucking night before, what happened? And continues to happen? And then this person gets on my case, because obviously I'm the one who..... isn't trying hard enough.

The thing is, I had one of those milestones where I realized I'd gained some functioning back. I successfully planned and made a nice substantial lunch----a big thing for me because it can take me all day to shake off the combination of bad sleep and as many as-----I actually counted----- twelve different nightmares.

(Note to self: bottle of vegetable oil and Pine Sol look superficially alike.

Do not be fooled.)

Snowball needs to go back to the vet. Or vice versa.

Sigh.

plaster and flour
my aunt while in process of remodeling her kitchen -was frying a batch of chicken for her families dinner and used plaster instead of flour in frying up the chicken. washing plaster off of chicken after frying a couple of pieces and then coating with real flour does not work. luckily they had bologna sandwiches instead.
I tried making scones and baking soda does not sub for baking powder.
we all make errors don't sweat it

When I was in college one of the women in my dorm was a 6'+ tall Texas blond: think of photos of the young Molly Ivins and you've pretty much got her appearance. One day I was walking back to my dorm room and heard actual full-throated screams coming out of the women's batheoom. I burst in, sure that there was a rape or knife attack going on, and found her naked and screaming while doing a handstand in a shower stall. She'd gotten up late after a hard night, and had accidentally swapped the tube of jelly for her diaphragm with a tube of Ben Gay. Nothing like naked wet inverted screaming 6'+ Texans to start out a week.

Kind of like the time my parents realized I needed to learn how to read.....fast. I'd almost mistaken hemorrhoid cream for toothpaste.

I usually only do things like mistake chilli powder for smoked paprika, but given my propensity to not label stuff.. extremely hot food does happen at least once a week.

Poor Snowball. :\

I made some interesting chili one day when I used cinnamon instead of chili powder. The cans were almost identical. Sigh.

Oh... um. Interesting is definitely one description! Don't accidentally confuse the two when making porridge either. *wince* That was clearly a result of lack of tea

Authentic Mexican cuisine actually does have cinnamon, even in its savory/spicy dishes. I wonder if that originated as a mistake, a century or so ago. :)

I've been away from LJ for a bit (my computer was sort of messed up, but it's OK now) and I'm sorry to see that you're still dealing with this bullshit.

I hope Snowball feels better soon!
