Pinteste Round-up: Thanksgiving and Angst

0 Posted by - November 20, 2012 - Pinteste Round-ups

Happy Thanksgiving week to my American readers! I wish you gluttony, wine, and families that drive you only slightly insane. Here on the blog I’ve got a couple of Thanksgiving recipes in store for you this week (but probably none you’ll want to try for your Thanksgiving, so don’t hold your breath or anything).

And then right around the corner is the Big One. Yep, Christmas: every crafter’s favorite time of the year. We’ll be doing some crazy stuff in December, but I want to know what you want to see, too. Keep those suggestions coming (an easy way to tell me is in the forum) and let me know if you want anything special for a theme for the month or anything like that. We’re gonna fuck up some shit, y’all.

Now, on to your brilliance…

I got an alternate suggestion for the 2 Ingredient Apple Cake recipe:

m_pinning I made this and it was fantastic! But instead of apple pie filling I used orange juice, and instead of cake mix I used vodka. (There was no box for baking instructions, so I didn’t bother baking it.) I put it in a glass instead of a bundt pan and it worked perfectly. I didn’t add water, either.

Sounds lovely, dear.

Got lots of comments about Crock Pots (which are actually slow cookers, since Crock Pot is a brand name) on my Q&A post, but those are boring. Let’s get to some good stuff:

jesschaisson Your lips make me feel a little bit lesbian.

World domination, here I come.

I mentioned writing a self-help book in my Diet Coke cupcakes post.

Ethne Hedren Denham Your self help book can be entitled: “The Pintester~ America’s Educator on How Diet Coke and Gin Fix Everything, and Other Life Lessons Including How the ‘squatty potty :)’ Changes Lives”.

Once I complete my goal of world domination, I’ll work on that.

KatherynBeerman Slightly off topic, but who the heck thought of adding soda to cake batter? I can just picture a woman in her trailer, moo-moo on, curlers in hair, “shoot pa! The darn water’s been cut off again.” a greasy, balding man wearing a yellow stained wife beater tank top and mc hammer pants while sitting in his recliner responds, “whatcha want me to do about it?!”

“Well you can dump your mountain dew in the batter, unless you don’t want your brother-son to get hims his birfday cake this year.”


Excellent story-spinning. And I’m sure that’s exactly how it happened.

I want to thank you guys for all your help with my future manicures.

arklorres This was hilarious, thank you for that. After several times of doing the lick a nail trick to fix a dent I found that you can lick your finger tip, get it all spitty you can then use that to smooth it out. I hope this saves you from tongue cancer.

Huhn. Lick your finger instead of your nail. Brilliant.

persephone767 Uh, yeah. I want a shirt that says: I’m scientifical like that, yo.

I’ve been thinking of adding new products to the shop. Maybe that will go on the list. 😉 What else do you want to see?

ShaunaB My husband was reading over my shoulder…from the couch ten feet away…and wanted to know why you were giving the can of Pam a hand job.  🙂

Hey, the Pam totally did me a favor, and I am a giving person.

You guys, I didn’t mean to say that teenagers with angst are dumb or whatever, which seems to be the consensus in the comments. I had a lot of angst as a teenager. I wrote awful poetry and had far more “woe is me” moments than a lot of you did, I’m sure. But now that I’m a grown-ass woman, I don’t have the energy for angst anymore, hence the snark.

You know how if you get a nervous puppy, sometimes they turn aggressive when they grow up? Well, maybe if you have a really angsty teenager, she turns snarky when she grows up. Just a theory. So give the angsters a break. They are your potential future humor bloggers.

    I so appreciate your defense of the angsty teenagers. I really do.

    So thats what happened to me!  I’m convince if I allowed people to read my horrible teenage poetry I would’ve been locked away.  Snarky fits me better.

    I love it!  Thanks for the nod, Pintester.  You’re an inspiration, for which I am thankful.  Can’t wait to see the crap you get under your nails this holiday season.

    Maybe it is just me, but the floating thing on the left side to pin, tweet, or facebook this post blocks the first couple of letters of each line as I scroll and is sort of annoying to read around!

      littlelistmaker It was doing that to me earlier. Try clearing your cache. I think that should fix it!
