Chocolate puzzle made for the beau based on the game called Chocolate Fix by ThinkFun (which apparently is also used in mathcounts exercises). The chocolates need to be arranged so that they match up with the clues which cannot be flipped or rotated.
Note to self for future attempts: -use freeze dried strawberries inside the chocolate rather than fresh ones if you can find them -use milk chocolate blocks rather than chips so that you can try tempering them so they don’t melt on contact. -macha green tea flavored milk tea flavoring does not flavor white chocolate, only colors it and makes it grainy. -Walmart has mini cupcake cups… No need to fold your own badly fitting chocolate holders… -it’s not worth it but buy a pound of green twizzlers for the amount you used to create the 3x3 partitions… -maybe you want to try looking for an appropriate box rather than making one out of a magazine cover…
(actually one of the (puzzles was supposed to be a unique solution puzzle, but I left out a clue and made two 2-solution puzzles and one no-solution puzzle.)
Try solving them and let me know in the comments. I personally think they’re quite fun :3
Thank you for the magazine subscriptions. I have been duly accepting the Car and Driver magazines, but i have yet to really read them. But you certainly piqued my interest with today’s arrival of Playboy magazine. I haven’t been so excited to read a magazine since going to the optometrist or pediatric dentist and finding an issue of Highlights. I am eager to see what wonders the infamous magazine holds.
edit: nvm, I don’t need to see another playboy magazine again. there were far more naked women in there than i expected…..>_> I guess i was thinking it was just like GQ but with more scantily but still clad women.
Today we had a case study about a man who turned out to have hep b and had previously had hep a. When he was first asked about his sexual history, it said that he had become indignant and did not answer the question. When he was told he had hep serology came back, he finally fessed up to being bisexual and described that he had had multiple partners and did various things such as analingus. Several people in my group including me had not heard the term before, but from the looks of the word I quickly posited that it was licking a butthole and that it probably had been the source of his hep a. I did not feel it would be especially helpful to google it.
Though I think I have an issue with having educated guesses that usually are right that I seem to say in a way that makes it seem like I know what I’m talking about, so I worry my group is maybe like hm, she has lots of random knowledge about various things including analingus. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm >_>
So today I had my first patient ever. She happened to be a Spanish speaker with limited English. So I was attempting to ask about her med history in Spanish, but I didn’t know how to say nursing in Spanish. I ended up awkwardly asking “Tiene leche?” while motioning to my chest…..
I wish i was articulate and eloquent enough to show how conflicted I feel about this. This song/MV is admittedly very cool. He is an attractive guy who definitely knows how to pull off skilled dance moves—the silhouettes are esp a nice touch. Additionally, the instrumentals are very catchy. (I might just really like trumpets and saxophones in pop. w/e)
However, the thematic content I feel less enthused about. First of all, 2Chainz is completely unnecessary. It would be 100x better without him. He makes the song feel particularly trashy. Without him I would have been just ehhh :| about the thematic content, but with him it’s like ㅎ_ㅎ. Secondly, the song just seems to be like fetishizing the exotic beauty. Admittedly all the women in the video are very pretty. Maybe I’m reading too much into it, but to me the exotic beauty fetish is especially highlighted by the Asian girl (the only girl who says anything) who bookends the mv with a distinctly Chinese accent saying “Wat? I don undastan.” Even before I saw the MV, the girl’s voice especially bothered me in the context of the lyrics. I can’t put my finger on exactly why, but somehow it bothers me.
(However, this video is miles and miles above like Flo Rida’s Can’t Believe It MV in which it’s filled w/ bodiless distorted asses. Maybe he’s trying to be poetic and utilize synecdoche. yes of course. that must be it.)
The jigglypuff I carved Twas a substantial amount of work. Trying to peel off layers of pumpkin with only a steak knife is rather difficult. I ended up slipping and stabbing myself in the hand <_<;; Note to self: get some pumpkin carving tools from the dollar store next time.
Another guy carved the squirtle and when I saw his finished product, I was like sigh, I concede this round.
