I've made these three times. The first time they came out absolutely perfect, but the next two they were pretty weird and the batter was crumbly. I realized (I think this is it, anyway) that it's because I didn't follow the instructions the second and third times, instead just mixing the ingredients together all at once. Maybe? I can't really remember what the texture of the dough was like the first time I made them. I should start taking notes when I cook. Treat cooking like lab experiments.
I listened to my voicemail (I am lazy about checking it) and apparently my dad sent me a check. I will be able to finish paying rent and pay at least last month's late charge with that. It's a relief.
I actually feel like listening to 69 Love Songs but am in an okay mood. Strange, strange.
