How long has it been since I made risotto from scratch? Thanksgiving of… some year? Back when I had a young baby and two part-time jobs and still tried to cook? I have much lower standards these days. And the not-quite-enough-for-anything arborio rice is still in the cabinet, because the solution to having not quite enough arborio rice is somehow always to buy more arborio rice, in bulk, so that you don’t know how much you’re really getting, and then you still have a little bit left over after you make it again. Which I won’t be doing any time soon.
I’m sure there are people who use Q-tips for a great many personal hygiene needs. We are apparently not those people. I have no idea how this 15+ year old package of Q-tips is ever going to get used up. There are only so many tiny arrows you can make with Q-tips to go with the tiny bow made of dental floss and a popsicle stick that you saw on Pinterest, you know?
Transforming toy robots
You’d THINK the number of transforming toy robots welcome in my house would be infinite. We are geeks. We love robots. But I also thought I would have a boundless love for the Transformers movies and then Michael Bay happened.
Luckily Michael Bay is not involved with my son’s collection of transforming toy robots, but a force perhaps equally as sinister (grandparents) has increased the size of the collection to a level that cannot be contained by any organizational system short of devoting an entire room of the house to this. BUT I AM USING THOSE ROOMS FOR OTHER THINGS. So, no more transforming toy robots, thank you.
Also because now we have broken ones so there are also transforming toy robot limbs scattered about, and it’s just kind of depressing.
