For My Blog's 2nd Birthday






I can hardly believe it but two years ago today I started this blog. I cannot believe it has been that long. I am so connected to it I cannot imagine a time when I existed and it did not. I have no idea what I did with my time or thoughts. I feel like I have so much to say and such a limited about of time to share it, and that’s now. God what did I do then?

I never reread posts; once they are proofed and posted I am done. The longer time goes on the more I am additament that I do not go back in time unless I need some information. I feel awkward reading thoughts of someone else, because that’s how I feel. Once I write something I feel I have shed it and am onto the next. But when you see your growth or how you would do it differently now it can feel strange. I guess I should also see it as rewarding the changes I have made in my life and in myself.

Today I reread last years birthday blog (http://thequeenoff-ckingeverything.blogspot.com/2012/03/for-my-blogs-1st-birthday.html) which I haven’t done since I posted it. Ironically I was sick this week too. Not with a sinus infection thankfully, but with one of the worst migraines of all time that have lasted two weeks now. With that illness it has left me out of commission for all things, work, sleep, even showering on a daily basis but now that I am getting my strength back I realized how much I missed my blog. It had been a couple of weeks since I posted and I was feeling that yearning in my gut to start typing. All of the topics I had planned on writing were floating through my head one after another and as I added lines to them I knew it was not time to write them just yet. I had not yet properly reflected on this anniversary so I thought I would just sit down and see what words would flow from me.



As I look through my detailed list of planned blogs I know what I want to write, day to day, week to week, from here until the last week of April right now. Dates might change of course depending on my ability to write that day but there are some that matter because of special occasions and I will have to do whatever is necessary to get it done.

What I am doing differently this year than last, is that I am writing more and more blogs ahead of time. I am not even doing it on purpose. Usually when this happens it is for a blog idea that just popped into my head and the emotions and words are streaming at such a strong speed I have to stop to write them down before my head explodes. Ordinarily I just think things through and save it in my head until the date arrives to blog about it.

Also this year I feel I am tapping into a deeper level. I am not just sharing information about where I go and why you should too. I want to also share who I am and the things and people who are important in my life. This will become an even stronger thread in 2013. I have never thought about whether or not I would blog any more. It’s not a possibility for me. Originally this might have been something I did on the side, it was only a part of my life. Now though it is my life. It is a part of my soul. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about something I want to write or edit. I am inspired by everything and my mind is constantly working. Even when I can’t function from a migraine the blog is in the back of my mind as an outlet for me to release my feelings and share helpful information with others.



I am grateful for all of my readers and supporters. I hope to continue to surprise, entertain, and wow them. I also hope to attain a larger fan base and pass the message around. It is a very powerful feeling to know that you can share your thoughts and words with the world, however small or large it may be.

So I guess what I am trying to say is that I have fully settled into my role as The Queen of F-cking Everything and there is nothing I would rather be.

For Find Out Friday - Why Do Emery Boards Make My Skin Crawl?

You know that sound a fingernail makes when it scratches against a chalkboard?  You know that feeling the sound of that action gives you? I, like most people, hate that sound.  I instantly feel like scrunching my shoulders up to my neck and closing my eyes.  I feel the exact same way when I am using an emery board to file my nails. This annoying sensation has a name: “grima” which is Spanish for disgust or uneasiness. This term basically describes any feeling of being displeased, annoyed, or dissatisfied someone or something.  It is a feeling that psychologists are starting to pay more attention to as it relates to our other emotions.  Emery boards are traditionally made with cardboard that has small grains of sand adhered to them. It is the sandpaper that I believe makes me filled with grima.  According to studies that are being done around the world, it is not just the feeling that we associate with certain things like nails on a chalkboard or by using emery boards

For the Perfect Appetizer Dinner: “Morgan’s Brooklyn Barbecue”

Have you ever gone out to eat and wished that you just ordered a bunch of appetizers?  I have.  It is actually my preferred way to eat. I like to get a taste of a bunch of different things rather than one big plate. I am much more interested in the kinds of foods we eat as appetizers versus lunch or dinner. Desserts hardly ever register on my radar. At the beginning of this year, right before I was set to release my annual to do list , I stumbled upon a photo of the most beautiful plate of brisket nachos I have ever seen. I instantly wanted them. Naturally the establishment behind said nachos, Morgans Brooklyn Barbecue, earned a spot on my list. The week leading up to my visit all I could think about was “would those nachos be my entire meal or just my appetizer”? Sure I love all kinds of barbecue food: the ribs, the brisket, pulled pork, and don’t even get me started on those sides!! Any restaurant that serves mac and cheese, corn bread, and creamed spinach us

For Find Out Friday - How Do You Milk An Almond?

Despite my affinity for cheese and other dairy products, occasionally (actually a few times a week) I like to go dairy-free.  During those times I rely heavily on my favorite brand of almond milk, as seen in the picture above.  Though I know there is no dairy in this product, I constantly wonder: “how does one milk an almond”? Logically I am aware that no actually “milking” is taking place.  I also know that almond milk can be made at home, although I have zero interest in attempting to make it despite my love of spending time in my kitchen. So, what is the actual process?  How long does it take?  When / where / who was the first to successful develop this product? When talking about this kind of “milk” what we are really talking about is plant juices that resemble and can be used in the same ways as dairy milk. Plant like juice has been described as milk since about 1200 A.D. The first mentions can be found in a Baghdadi cookbook in the thirteenth
