@athenahm Or not.  Don't get me wrong, I love the Pintester but I don't display my own sh*tty crafts let alone those someone else conjured up.  But perhaps you are a more gentle and forgiving soul than I.  Someone has to be the balance for cynics such as myself.

I expected so much worse from you.  Oh the disappointment when I see that Calvin is actually not a vomit-worthy little troll of a sock creature.  Nicely done, master of the permanent finger button, nicely done.

I know I'll probably be stoned for this (and not the good kind either), but I cannot wait until all of the "Christmas Cheer" is over.  I'm taking my little stack of books, my booze, and my cat and I'm headed for the basement until January.

I'm so filled with pride for your craft accomplishment that I may have shed a tear.  It was either that or post nasal drip.  I can't be sure.  I will toast your triumph with a cocktail.  To be fair, I would have toasted your failure with a cocktail as well, but this is even better.

@Ethne Hedren Denham This is from Tootsie.com:  Created in 1925, the portable caramel lollipop was originally called the PapaSucker, later changing its name in 1932 to suggest “a wealth ofsweetness”--hence, Sugar Daddy.

Glorious.  I once made caramel on the stove top and had that crap cemented to the sauce pan.  After removing the bulk of the caramel, I filled the pan with water and boiled it.  The stuff came unglued with no trouble and I just spooned it out.  Just wondering, did you spray your pan with cooking spray or prepare it in any way?

I love your background music...kind of a jazzy game show theme.  I thought when you held up your hand at the end and said "Merry Christmas" that you were going to lower all but the middle finger.  Maybe for the next cocknails....

You're brave to even post this one.  It looks a bit train-wreckish and somewhat vomitty.  But I really have to give you mad props for "balls".  BTW, I love Kraft Mac & Cheese.  Does that make me a bad person?

It's my pleasure to read your blog.  And I, too, am sorely disappointed by your successful Thanksgiving chow.  I must now consider the possibility that I have surpassed the master at abject failure.  Curses!

As for the bun, at least you have thick enough hair to attempt one.  My hair is so fine, I can't even make a respectable ponytail.

I know exactly what you mean.  I have also been experimenting with alcohol I have around to come up with a cocktail I can sip while exploring the meaning of life.  I mixed a shot of kahlua gingerbread, the juice of one orange, a maraschino cherry and a tsp. of the juice from the maraschino jar.  I topped it off with some diet ginger-ale, garnished with an orange slice and added ice.  Damned if that wasn't one fine libation for the contemplation of existential matters (and the viewing of a truly craptastic horror movie).

@aMUSEme8 It's similar to the British using the term "Hoover" and "hoovering" for vacuum and vacuuming.

I just can't work up any sympathy for these angsty pre-teens. Back in the day (after I walked to school 50 miles in the snow) I'd get my ass kicked, my lunch money stolen, and my clothes ridiculed all before lunch.  If I was lucky I would get to the bus to go home with one more ass kicking and a tiny allotment of dignity.

Don't get me wrong.  I enjoy your failures immensely and I wouldn't change a thing...for you.  I did wonder if spraying the straws with cooking spray would make removal any easier.  I didn't wonder enough to try it myself.  Maybe someone who isn't as bone-idle as I am will give that a go and get back to me.

Wise are the Pintestees.  That drink produces that coppery taste in my mouth that indicates a volcanic vomit is forthcoming.  At least you're sporting your Halloween nail WIN.  I can admire them while gagging.

First off, your pintestees have talent.  That dingle-berry is a thing of beauty.  This pintest...huarf.  Let me re-iterate.  Huarf.  Your execution was fantastic.  No beef with that.  That vile Halloween concoction, "candy corn", makes my bile rise.  Don't get me started on the wretched candy pumpkins.  That combination of barely edible Halloween sugar rush is suitable only for the vilest of demons in the lowest boil encrusted ring of Hell.  But hey, good job.

You made the right call.  Screw licorice in chocolate.  That's just so wrong in so many ways.  And I don't care what it looks like, chocolate and marshmallows will always be good.  Just throw a blob in the cup.  Call it eyeballs, spleens, pancreas, whatever it takes and guzzle it.

I've put some real crap on my porch but I would not put that thing out.  I'm thinking of a "Pinhead" pumpkin but I'm pretty sure I'm gonna make a dog's dinner out of that.  Just in case, I'm gonna have some booze handy and sit out on my front stoop drinking and tell everyone I'm a wino for Halloween.

Points for starting off the month with a nice stiff one.  Extra points for starting off with a drink.  I think I'll sub the bourbon for sake and add some fresh grated ginger...'cause that's just how I roll (on the floor like a drunk monkey).

Dutch oven?  That's no friend.  I think it's also a highly defendable plea in court (not guilty by reason of dutch oven) and likely will get you off assault charges.
