Buy me candy! (if you want!)

As I said on my other blog, I added a widget to the side where you can buy me a Hershey bar (on my other blog you can buy me a Java Chip from Starbucks). You can donate however much you like, but you're not required to!

If you're feeling really generous, you could donate towards my next tattoo!

On another note, I hate HTML. It's so difficult to get things just how I want it when I want to edit my pages. I wish I could just drag things where I want it instead of having to change numbers in my HTML code and saving to see if it worked or not.

That's enough for now. I'm off to get a snack while Chase finishes up his nap.

Zodiac Tattoo

I was looking up Zodiac tattoos since I think that's what my next one would be. I found a few interesting ones. I'm a Cancer by the way, and the symbols are a crab and another symbol that kind of looks like a sideways 69. Here's some of the ones I found.

This one is a little harder than what I was thinking of, but I do like the purple, and that the 69 symbol is encorporated in the eyes.

This one is nice, but it doesn't have the crab symbol that I want too. I think it might look pretty cool outlined in black and filled in in purple though!

I didn't find exactly what I wanted, but I'll keep looking!

Post Thanksgiving Wrap-up

Well I tried to set up mobile blogger on here so that I could easily post and send pictures and whatnot, but that was a bust. I guess I can make posts on here from my phone, but for some reason it won't let me add pictures. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to keep on doing it the old fashioned way!

The Oreo Truffles turned out ok. I tried to melt the chocolate on a double boiler, but I guess me adding butter to try to make it smoother had the opposite effect...because then it froze up into a chocolate ball of...well...mess. Me with my bright ideas decided to try to re-heat it in the microwave, so I popped it into a glass bowl and put it on for 30 seconds. It didn't look much different but it was definitely hot. When I took it out and stirred it once, I heard a loud *POP* which was the glass bowl cracking. GREAT! So I just threw all of that away and heated up the white chocolate chips in a PLASTIC bowl in the microwave this time. That worked better but I ran out of chocolate about halfway through (not even halfway really) so I had to dash out and buy some more.

They didn't have the milk chocolate chips I wanted at the first store so I went to another and ended up getting Hershey's semi sweet chips (which I didn't want, but it was that or nothing). Then the debit card reader went down and of course all I had was $5 cash on me, but luckily it came up after a minute or two of standing in line.

All and all it turned out ok. This is why I decided to do this early. Next time I'll try 1 teaspoon of shortening in the chocolate to make it smoother and dip easier, and I'll make sure I get 2 bags of white chocolate chips and MILK chocolate chips (the semi sweet didn't taste that bad after all, but I still prefer milk chocolate). I think I'll try some mint ones too. Anyway, here was the finished product!

The drizzled chocolate on top made it look really pretty!
