the other day i was wondering...


... how did find things out before the internet?

i mean really. i don't recall. i DO remember that i fancied myself the queen of resourcefulness, but i sure do NOT recall exactly what i did to earn that title.

this fond introspection comes on the heels of eggs. if eggs had heels. which they don't. but it sounded poetic.

so last night i'm assembling a salad for my lunch today... yes i said SALAD. shut up.

i thought some hard boiled eggs would be a nice addition. so i went to the internet to find out how to do it. and the internet responded brilliantly and behold, there was egg. eggs i mean. hard boiled eggs. it was fantastic.

today, i turned on the monitor and up came the recipe for boiling an egg... and i thought to myself, this just might be the most pathetic thing i ever googled.

though truth be told, i can't be sure.

there is talent involved in getting the perfect hard boiled egg...I know because I only usually get it right about 5% of the time...my deviled eggs usually have this faint green tinge because I over cooked them!

i didn't know that green tinge was overcooking... the thing i found said put them in cold water, bring to a boil for 1 minute, turn down heat for 1 minute, remove from heat, cover and let sit for 12 minutes, then put in cold water. it seemed to have worked. also i added salt and vinegar to the water for some reason i forget now.
