Give Me Sentences

Posted by Nukaya , in Art Nov 25 2011 · 134 views
please, give me sentences
I need sentences for my drawing final. I'll take a few of them that I like, and create them into finalized drawings.

Guidelines:
-Make up sentences. They cannot be from a pre-existing book, magazine, movie, poem, etc.
-No established characters if there is a person in the sentence. If you're going to have a person in it, make them up.
-Nothing inappropriate (i.e., follow BZP rules here)

These are some examples from Chris Van Allsburg's book The Mysteries of Harris Burdick that kind of follow a rough idea of how I want to do this project, with a very narrative feel:

What Pumpkins?

Spritz cookies in the shape of pumpkins!

First Thanksgiving away from home, but my friends Christine and Jon had a Thanksgiving dinner with a bunch of people who weren't able to go home or live here and didn't have a Thanksgiving dinner in town to go to. While eating, we watched part of Madagascar 2, part of Elf, and all of The History of the World Part 1. And then we yelled at commercials for being silly.

I made the aforementioned spritz cookies (which turned out very spicy and warm and quite different from what my mom makes) as well as cranberry sauce again. Except the cranberries didn't pop like last time and it's much more liquidy. It was kind of weird. But it tasted good and everyone really liked it, so no complaints here. I came out of last night with half a ham. So much ham. Delicious ham.

I am hamstuck.

Cranberry Sauce

recipe, thanksgiving and 1 more...
The track team is having a Thanksgiving dinner tonight, so I decided to make a dessert. Except they had cranberries at Grocery Outlet for really cheap, so I was like "Oh man I bet I can totally make awesome homemade cranberry sauce and it will be awesome so let's just ignore that I've never made it before".

So, I'm sort of basing this off of the recipe on the back of the cranberry package, and then another I found online. The final product was supposed to be made of:

-1 cup water
-12oz bag cranberries
-1 cup sugar

After reading comments from people who had made the online recipe, it became:

-1/2 cup water
-1/2 cup orange juice
-3/4ish cup of sugar
-12oz bag cranberries
-1 cup blueberries
-An unknown amount (possibly half a teaspoon?) of cinnamon

Boil liquid and sugar together, then add cranberries, continuing to boil and stir them until they burst. Reduce heat to simmer and stir in cinnamon and blueberries. Remove from stove, let cool until room temperature and chill it in fridge.

It is so delicious. It is kind of tart but still sweet, and it is this super pretty mix of reds and blues that smells super cinnamony.

The recipe line of "boil until cranberries burst" needs to be rewritten to "boil until the cranberries start exploding juice at you and you start to question whether it's really worth getting flying boiling liquid on your hands to make this food."

Anyways, does anyone have some favourite Thanksgiving/holiday foods they like to make or like to eat?

4/4

Zach went four for four in his medals! He just had the craziest kick in the last 50m of the 400m and snagged the bronze!!

I am so excited to eventually see him competing as an Olympian.

My friend Zach raced in the 800m and the 100m wheelchair races (T53 category) and placed second and third respectively, and he just qualified for the finals of the 200 this afternoon, and is ranked third going into the finals!

It is really cool and super exciting, because he's also ranked fourth in the world for the 100, which means that he has a pretty legitimate chance at making it to the London Paralympics next year, something that would be just awesome, because he's has worked his butt off to get from where he was in high school track to where he is now in college.

Pinned Blogs Fixed

Posted by Nukaya , in BZPower and LEGO Nov 03 2011 · 71 views

I'm not sure why there were a bunch (seemingly random staff) blogs that were pinned.

I fixed it though. I don't know if it was a glitch or something else or what, but the problem is currently solved!
