If you’ve been following my cartoons, then you know that Rabbit Roo has an overactive thyroid condition which we’ve been trying to get under control since last October. I took him to the vet today, and he weighs the most he’s ever weighed: 13.6 lbs (6.2 kg). My goodness! Way to go, Rabbit Roo! I also must say that he is the best medicine-taker ever, and I am the best medicine-giver ever. I’m thinking of starting a business, kind of like a dog walker, where I go to people’s houses and administer pills to their pets (if their pets needs to take pills).

fear feel that a recurring theme of my blog posts is going to be about my current unemployment and having to live on a budget. Holla! Because of my “situation,” I’m sewing a few items, using fabric I have on hand, for my summer 2011 wardrobe. First up is this hot look:
From this book published in 1984 (Surprising, right? That picture looks so au courant.):
I altered the pattern, of course, and made this dress out of a seersuckerish, navy blue and white striped fabric:
Next on my agenda is a shirt based on this dress pattern, but I’m going to add a Peter Pan collar. Girl likes herself a Peter Pan collar! And I might make another dress but add interior pockets. I might also buy some fabric, which I’ve had my eye on, for the second dress. I know, I know…I’m bad! I might also make some shorts using the same fabric as in the picture above, but I would like to experiment with dyeing the fabric first. Who knows? Stay tuned!
That’s the working title of the ramekin cookbook I’m developing. The first recipe I’ve refined involves baking eggs (obvs!). Here’s how it goes:
Ingredients (serves 1)
1 slice of pancetta
Cheese (Parmesan and goat are good options.)
1. Lightly spray the inside of the ramekin with Pam.
2. Crack the egg into the ramekin. Make sure to fish out any shell that gets in there.
3. Place the slice of pancetta on top of the egg.
4. Top with cheese.
5. Bake in your double-decker Hello Kitty toaster oven for 7 to 10 minutes, or until the egg rises.
6. Et voila!
7. If you’re still hungry, repeat Steps 1 through 6.
Wouldn’t that be exciting? Okay, not really. But i am going to start blogging more regularly about all sorts of topics and keep posting my cartoons. I don’t want to inundate the Facebook with each and every post, so I’m going to disconnect my blog from Facebook after this post. This means that YOU, my loyal reader, should bookmark my blog, add it to your Google Reader, follow me on Tumblr…stat!
