Baby Update

Well I had another ultrasound.

The baby is 28 cm in diameter for her head and 26 for her abdomen. She weighs about 3.5 pounds.

She gets the hiccups.

She sucks her thumb.

Want. Take. Have.

There are some people in the world that I just don't understand. They are people who really want something and do not get it because deep down, they are afraid of it.


I lived with a girl called JJ and she had a friend from college named Jay. Jay wanted to be JJ's boyfriend. And JJ let him do all the things that a boyfriend would do, like watch her dog when she was on vacation, have a key to her house, go to family events like Thanksgiving. But she would never do anything physical with him. She confided later that she found him physically unattractive. The thing I never understood was that Jay would pine for her and during the time I knew JJ and Jay, Jay never acted on it. He never kissed her like they do in black and white movies and set down the gauntlet of "I am a man and I want you to be my woman." I think, deep down, Jay knew what JJ's answer would be (NO) and rather not hear that and pine. I just don't get that. Wouldn't you rather know? Then you could move on?

This is my thing:
If you WANT something, TAKE it, then you HAVE it.

When you are pregnant, random strangers will come up to you and tell you about things you that you have no clue how to respond.

Case in point:
A woman comes to me and says I will have a colicky baby because of the way I am carrying.

I am in line to pay for gas and I have to hear this? WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE?

My 200th post

Well, I do not know what to tell you about how prolific I am about posting.

I made Yohboh muffins for breakfast tommorrow.

I created this recipe based on a few. I really was interested in the sour cream aspect.

Apple Cinnamon Pecan Muffins

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 large egg
1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup apples, chopped coarse
2/3 cup coarsely chopped pecans, toasted lightly and cooled

Into a bowl sift the flour, the cinnamon, the baking soda, and a pinch of salt. In a large bowl with an electric mixer beat together the egg and the brown sugar until the mixture is thick and pale, add the sour cream and the vanilla, and beat the mixture until it is combined well. Beat in the flour mixture, a little at a time, and beat the batter until it just combined. Stir in the apples and the pecans and divide the batter among 12 paper-lined muffin tins. Bake the muffins in the middle of a 350°F. oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean, turn them onto a rack, and let them cool.

Makes 12 muffins.

I hope Yohboh likes them.

Logo Channel

Have you heard of this channel?

It is the gay channel. But I have been chatching up on Queer As Folk and all those quasi gay movies.

I am a fag hag, even married.

My mom is her mom

I think my mother is turning into her mother so by logic, I am turning into her.

Cold Cold Cold

I am so cold right now. I have many layers on. Since yohboh and I are unemployed, we do not turn the heat on.

So why do I get heat rashes?

Pre Thanksgiving

Every year, yohboh and I make a Thanksgiving dinner the Saturday before Thanksgiving.

We do this for two reasons:

  1. We get to practice our recipes
  2. We get to spend some holiday time with friends.
Here are some photos:

Two Turkeys

We made two turkeys this year, one that is roasted in the oven, the other is deep fried.

Minjenah's Plate

This is my personal plate of goodies. There are collard greens, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, squash casserole, macaroni and cheese, green bean casserole, deep fried and oven roasted turkey and cornbread stuffing.

There was also apple pie, pumpkin pie and chocolate torte for dessert.

Anyone hungry?

I just made up this word. What it means is how I feel during my pregnancy. I cannot watch Gray's Anatomy if the pregnant woman is in pain without bursting into tears.

Bathroom Frustration

I go to the bathroom so much, I have asked Yohboh to put a TV with cable in there so I don't miss anything.
