tuesday things I howsweeteats.com

1. Someone please bring me this brooklyn blackout cake. whaaaaaat.

2. I totally loved the Oscars but I’m also obsessed with Ellen. And I happened to watch Dallas Buyers Club on Sunday afternoon to prepare myself so the entire time I was on the edge of my seat for Jared Leto and Matthew McConaughey. I can’t even deal with how incredible they both were in that movie. Also, please Travoltify your name here and tell me what it is. Mine is Jennifer Marsheem.

3. You know how I haven’t been able to shut up about my favorite pens? Well. Over the weekend I watched my husband struggle to rip open the plastic top of a container of peanut butter pretzels in a hunger rage. I then watched him stop, look around, GRAB ONE OF MY PENS, take off the cap, and jam it into the plastic like a knife to open the container. I pretty much screamed “nooooooooo” and he’s all “it’s just a pen…?” and I’m like IT IS NOT JUST A PEN.

4. In the same shopping trip where he bought the pretzels, he came home with two packages of break apart cookies. He then baked them when we got home on Saturday night at 11PM.

5. I fully expect a pothole to completely swallow my entire car at any moment. I have no idea how it’s even possible to drive on the roads. It’s baaaad.

6. Um. DJ Tanner on Dancing with the Stars this season. I must watch.

7. For about ten seconds over the weekend I was really missing stores like Blockbuster. Remember walking into a video store and being overwhelmed by the choices? I kind of loved it.

8. What does it say about me that I’m a little too excited for fish fry season? Errr… I mean lent.

9. I’ve increased my vault of needed emojis from bacon and tacos to bacon, tacos, blueberries and grapefruits. Who is in charge of emojis and seriously, how is there not a bacon one?

10. So many TV feels this week. Didn’t really care about GIRLS. Whatev. I’m so curious about how they will wrap it up. Just more Shosh please. Um, Walking Dead? I am quite torn on this situation. Are they attempting to put those two characters together? I kinda like but there is a huge reason that I don’t like it because of someone else. This is annoyingly cryptic. I really don’t think there is a need to worry because the show will never be about romance. Oh, but I did wikipedia the entire graphic novel series last week because I must ruin everything for myself. I also actually watched Grey’s Anatomy which is usually my background noise. Meh. But that was a nice ending!

11. 17 things to do right now that will make you feel better. I have to do like 75% of them.

    My Travoltified name is Sorley Granite. Interesting.
    There are still Family Video stores here where I walk in, take my phone out and save the names of titles I want to see, then hit the library. Have you seen The Way, Way Back with Steve Carrell? Love it. Watch it.
    I’m home sick with a sore throat that occurs at this time, almost this very week, annually for the last 7 years. What the deal with that?
    I’m an SLP and can’t talk because my throat hurts too much so it’s been a long day of laying around.
    I realized last month that when I bought Amazon Prime in Dec that I get to borrow books. What?! Hurray! Goldfinch is on the list for summer. Too long for now.

    I haven’t watched DWTS in quite a while, but I think with Candace Cameron Bure and Danica McKellar on I will have to tune in. I am sure it will be a Full House reunion in the audience.

    I am anxious to see Dallas Buyers Club now that I have a new found obsession with Matthew thanks to True Detective. And of course Jared since My So Called Life.

    My Travoltified name is Kieren Mertin. Hmmm, I like it. HA! Poor Idina!!

    Beth @ bethcakes — March 4, 2014 @ 2:46 pm

    The Walking Dead was weird. Obviously I had to keep watching it because Daryl was on the screen, but I am not a fan of Beth’s character. I think the whole thing would have been much better if it had been going back and forth between two groups instead of just them the whole time. I have heard rumors about Daryl and Beth doing “stuff and thangs,” if you know what I mean, but I’m hoping they don’t go there.

    We take fish fries very seriously here in St. Louis. There are even numerous interactive maps and ranking systems put together each year. It’s amazing.

    Katriel — March 4, 2014 @ 3:24 pm

    “Kamil Brazent”…thank you, John Travolta!
    Also, I totally miss blockbuster. I miss being able to rent random older movies and watch them. I recognize it cost more than redbox, but it also had more variety…

    betty — March 4, 2014 @ 3:46 pm

    i was kinda bored with TWD this week.. and the whole time I thought they were gonna hookup and I didn’t like the concept cause someone is still alive and perfect for that other person. and I was pleasantly surprised by greys this week.. I kinda gave up hope, but I really liked this one.

    Liz — March 4, 2014 @ 3:52 pm

    My Travolta name is Lois Pford. Apparently I am the female version of the Swedish chef from the muppets in John Travolta world. Also, when it comes to emojis why do they have one of Japan but no one to signify rolling your eyes? Or bacon? Or any of the others you mentioned?

    I’m from Pittsburgh, but I’ve been living in Charlotte, NC for the past 7 years and to my shock and dismay, there are NO fish fries. 7 years later and I’m still at a loss for what I’m supposed to eat on Fridays during lent.

    Ashley @ Hudson on the Potomac — March 4, 2014 @ 4:53 pm

    Ummm I share your concerns about the Walking Dead. I was kind of wigging the whole episode. Mostly because she seems really young and therefor it icks me out.


  24. #
    Jenni — March 4, 2014 @ 4:57 pm

    My Travoltified first name is Jessica. So Jennifer and Jessica must be opposites in that system! Haha. The crap people come up with is hilarious. Oh, and on that list of things I should do that will make me feel better? Yeah, um, checking my bank account rarely makes me feel better. #spendersguilt

    Jamie @ Dishing Out Health — March 4, 2014 @ 5:08 pm

    Hahah omg I love these posts. Girls was very unriveting this week. The episodes that are 100% about Hannah always suck, for lack of a better synopsis. Definitely need more Shosh and more crazy Marnie. I really feel like she is going to either have a breakdown or breakthrough by the end of the season. And OMG that CAKE!

    meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles — March 4, 2014 @ 5:47 pm

    Love a true blackout cake…Cannot even begin to list the missing emoji’s…DJ on Dancing? I never watch the show but will be watching now…And hide your pens, they are just not safe.

    Averie @ Averie Cooks — March 4, 2014 @ 6:02 pm

    Ok so your links and fave things work b/c over the weekend I ordered those pens! They should be here tomorrow :) They will be perfect with my W. English Day Designer. You cost me money all the time. LOL And I thank you for that! :)

    Michelle @ A Healthy Mrs — March 4, 2014 @ 7:16 pm

    “6. Um. DJ Tanner on Dancing with the Stars this season. I must watch.” <—- YES.

    Re: Walking Dead — For some reason I'm kind of into the idea of those two characters getting together!

    Laura (Blogging Over Thyme) — March 4, 2014 @ 7:36 pm

    Seriously. i would pay big money (well, you know) for even an app that allowed me to have more food emojis. I don’t understand why someone hasn’t taken advantage of this opportunity.

    And yeah, you can call me Layla. Layla Dizuncan.

    Sarah | The Sugar Hit — March 4, 2014 @ 8:29 pm

    OH MAN, I nearly cried out to save your pen! When you have a good pen, it’s….it’s special. No one should violate that. But you know, that just this girl – Seonaidh Corx’s opinion. (<—what the hell Travolta widget?)


  33. #
    Stefanie @ Sarcastic Cooking — March 4, 2014 @ 9:30 pm

    Girls def needs more Shosh to drop bombs of knowledge all over the other girls’ heads! I totally agree with you about pens. I smacked one of my pens out of my husband’s hand as he went to put it in his mouth to chew on! WTF.


  34. #
    Joey — March 4, 2014 @ 9:36 pm

    So I’m pretty sure my husband somehow planted #17 on that to do list. I don’t know how he could have done it, but I’m suspicious.

    LOL! “IT IS NOT JUST A PEN.” I am with you on that. I have favorite pens too! Cinnamon buns! YUUUUM!

    Kayla — March 4, 2014 @ 11:45 pm

    Drooling over those cinnamon rolls!
    I love these posts, especially your updates on tv shows.
    Have you ever watched prison break? My boyfriend and I just started it this weekend on Netflix and we are HOOKED! Definitely a winner.


  38. #
    Sara @ Confectionary Tales — March 5, 2014 @ 12:46 am

    Oh. my. god. I want those cinnamon rolls at the top. Send me some to LA? I’ve been sitting for the past two days trying to learn about wine in a sommelier course and all I want after almost no sleep studying the 200 page book is one of those cinnamon rolls.

    Oh. And there definitely aren’t enough emojiis for what I want. Bacon, cupcakes, chocolate.. They’re lacking in the food department. There’s also no fingers crossed option?

    Carrie M. — March 5, 2014 @ 1:34 am

    You always make me smile. Thank you for taking the time to be “thoughtful”. You’re a kick in the pants

    Lindsay — March 5, 2014 @ 2:36 am

    seriously, how did they leave tacos out of emojis?? blows my mind every time i think about it.

    Heather P — March 5, 2014 @ 9:02 am

    “Hector Pay-ne” – spelled just like that on the screen. I love it. Le Pens are my FAVORITE. Right now I have periwinkle and hot pink. Must get more.

    I need to watch Dallas Buyers Club this weekend. I can’t stop staring at pictures of Jared Leto’s face – he’s so beautiful. Matthew McConaughey has been blowing my mind in True Detective, so I am interested to see him in this movie. Also…Jared Leto…

    I’m torn about TWD and the potential coupling – I sort of hate it but I sort of love it. It’s like a delightmare for me. I loved this week’s episode, though, and seeing that emotion from Daryl.

    Paul — March 5, 2014 @ 9:11 am

    My name (Paul Gault) became “Paige Greez”. That’s about right. :)

    Stacy — March 5, 2014 @ 10:57 am

    Laughing so hard at No. 3. Not only am I obsessed with pens and have a special pen cup that only I am allowed to use, but my husband loves to destroy everything that is nice.

    The cinnamon rolls look amazing. My name is Cooper Smarnold. Ha! very clever!

    I am Jude Jernes, Travoltafied.. Love it!! I’ve gotten mail before, after carefully spelling my name to the person, Gian Johnes.. Do they actually listen? Omgs!

    Melissa @ Treats With a Twist — March 5, 2014 @ 2:04 pm

    Oh, I’m Matilda Kzing . Cracks me up.
    My husband did that with one of MY PENS! I swear! And I was screaming in slow mo and trying to grab the drawer where we keep all the scissors…disaster.

    Nora — March 5, 2014 @ 3:31 pm

    Definitely with you on the potholes! When I lived in Pittsburgh I was always worried they’d take out my car…
