Friday Flip Offs Time

Good Friday to you all, and welcome to Friday Flip Offs - the time of the week to get all my stresses out into the virtual world so i can enjoy my weekend. Proudly brough to you by Gigi at KludgyMom.

To the rain - i know that we need you, that farmers you need you for their crops, that you need to fill up our dams so we have drink water blah, blah, blah... but i want a bit of sunshine. I want to take Flynn out for a walk and to let him play on a blanket on the grass. Its been raining and cold and dreary for 3 days now, and its forecast for at least another 2 days more. My Australian summer-time-girl heart just cant bear it much more. Take your grey clouds and FLIP OFF!

To the kids on " World Strictest Parents " - grow.the fork.up. Seriously. I watch this show ( you know, now that " Masterchef " is over ) mainly so i can marvel at how bad your behaviour is and so that i can yell at you via the tv. Maybe if your parents and had yelled at you a bit more, or disciplined you properly at some point, you wouldnt be such idiots. I kind of feel bad for your parents because they put up with you, but i kind of dont because clearly you are a monster of their own making. ( And yes, before anyone points it out, thats kind of judgemental. Probably also very much true in 95% of cases ). Get over yourselves and learn some respect or FLIP OFF!

To the rocky road slice i made on Tuesday - you aren't exactly a fail. I followed the recipe, you turned out fine, Mick loves you. However - I am not a fan of your biscuit base. I was so looking forward to a yummy, scrummy, marshmallowy, chocolatey, chewy slice to snack on over a few days and what i got was a marshmallowy, chocolately slice with a crunchy base. Crunchy - its just not my thing ( at least not with a rocky road topping ). Your whole crunchy biscuit thing killed it for me. I would much rather you with a brownie base. So, unless you can magically turn chewy in my fridge overnight, either disappear into Micks lunchbox or just FLIP OFF!

Thats it this week. All pretty trivial, which i suppose means i had a good week.... enjoy!


  1. I hate it when something turns out not exactly wrong but just not right! It sounds like something I'd like, I love a biscuity base!

  2. those kids on the world's stirctest parents are lik birth control. they are horrible! lol! good list! thanks for visiting my Flip off!

  3. I get so sad when I'm all excited for a dessert and it doesn't turn out the way I want it to.

    Of course, my butt thanks me.

  4. if it turns chewy let me know because I could use a piece ! :P

    And nope I don't want him to crawl because I am just not ready for him to grow up anymore. lol I want him to stay little and immobile! No just kidding I really would like him to crawl but at the same time I don't Bitter sweet this growing up thing.

  5. I hate when you go through the trouble to bake something and it doesn't come out like you were hoping. Usually I give it away while grumbling my disappointment. Just had that happen with a whole pan of muffins, so disappointed!

    Hope you get some sunshine soon!

  6. So with you on the kids ~ I think they all shop at my local grocery store you could come here and flip them off in person :)
    Sorry about your "not what youe expected" cooking adventure. I will take it if you must, just to get rid of it and all :)
