Some of you may say that I am a lazy blogger and I don't post that much, but you are wrong. I am teaching you readers about the art of patience. So there! Oh, that reminds me, I gotta write an essay about patience. More later.

PTED-Post Traumatic Election Disorder Part 2

I am so exhausted, I think I have PTED (see above). I am so over all this election stuff. I have had enough until the next election. If you would like to see the original post about PTED, check out tash's blog post on PTED here: http://oysterblogger.blogspot.com/2008/11/blog-post.html.

Also, if you want to see what PTED feels like, here you are:

Shortbread Cookies

Here is my most coveted shortbread cookie recipe, (which Tash has been begging for)out for the world to see:

3/4 cup flour, sifted

1/4 cup superfine sugar

Pinch of salt

1/2 cup room temperature unsalted butter

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the flour, sugar and salt in a mixing bowl. Work in the butter with a fork or pastry cutter until the dough has the consistency of short crust.
Pulsing in a food processor will work also.
Sprinkle a board or your counter top lightly with flour. Turn the dough onto the board and knead until it's smooth. Refrigerate the dough for a couple of hours or overnight.
You should have approximately 8 ounces of dough. Divide the dough into four equal portions for large cookies or eight equal portions for small cookies and shape into rounds.
For consistency you might want to pull out your kitchen scales.
Place each round on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and flatten them with the bottom of a glass to about 1/4 inch thickness. Prick with a fork. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 20 to 30 minutes, until the cookies begin to brown slightly. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet.
Hope you like them.


I won't get too hung up on the election, but I really feel that our country is falling into a deep, dark hole, and Barack Obama is just gonna keep digging. I really was hoping for McCain to win (although I'm not a huge Palin supporter) in order to help our country. My friends (who are mostly democrats) said that "John McCain is just too old", or "he'll die in office, do you really want Palin for President?" but the fact of the matter is, he is not that old. My Granddad is 87 years old, that is 15 YEARS OLDER THAN JOHN MCCAIN! and he doesn't show any signs of dying any time soon. SO WHY DO YOU THINK JOHN MCCAIN WILL DIE IN OFFICE IF HE WAS ELECTED?

Ok I'm done with my little diatribe (ooh good word. Mr. Conroy would be proud.)
