Spawning Day: Take One

Today's goo spawned 16 starters, tomorrow's will spawn 16 more. Today's loaf count is 8, and tomorrow's will be 8 more. I'm up to my ears in goo. Please, someone help me.

Cindra, an evil bag of goo escaped containment and as you read these words is winging its way toward your domicile. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

I am exhausted. That is all.

What's this about goo headed towards Cindra's place? Please explain yourself Candace.

cindra said...

I'm so excited for the goo! I think. That is how desperate I am for entertainment...watching bacteria grow...sheesh. Thanks, Candace!

Egan, you are so jealous!

Egan said...

Am I not entertaining you enough Cindra? I'm hurt.

cindra said...

oh, no, Egan. You complete me. But you know, you aren't here on the kitchen counter like the goo will soon be. I get to smoosh it and stuff.

I wonder where our nocturnal hostess is?

Egan said...

She will wake in about 90 minutes and respond to comments. She's probably setting fire to shit outside and watching the Boondock Saints. I have other scenarios where she could be, but I'll leave it at this one for now.

(omigod, this is so weird)

Candace said...

Don't be jealous, Egan. You don't want a bacteria-filled bag of goo, do you? It might attract mice. Or Daniel Craig.

The nocturnal hostess was watching Pirates of the Caribbean II and involved in other scenarios that Egan might have been able to imagine, and might not.

~d - I attract weird bloggers ;)

cindra said...

SO happy to here you imply that you are using that one thing with Mr. again. Nice. Just be careful. It pinches!

cindra said...

i mean hear you.

ldbug said...

Attack of the goo? Well, at least all your hard work will turn that goo into delicious homemade bread?

Candace said...

C - Yes indeed! One must be uber careful! Especially if using in scissors-like fashion!

Ldbug - Yes, most of it is, but some of it isn't. Today's first batch, for instance. You'd think after seventy kajilion batches I'd have it memorized, but you'd think wrong.(ly?) Ah well, so the cookie crumbles. (So the goo bread splatters?)

Winters said...

Good evening, C.
After that post and those comments, I have nothing to say, and nowhere to goo.

Trundling Grunt said...

I am getting very alarmed by the spreading goo whose only intent seems to be to take over and goop the world. Perhaps this explains NASAs sudden fascination with setting up a moon station.

I just make bread the regular way without and don't think I could take teh strain of tending to a batch of goolets.

Egan said...

What are you implying Candace? I think you're making stuff up again.

ldbug said...

Ah so the goo is tricky - you never know what you're going to end up with, great bread or more goo!!

tshsmom said...

Is your family sick of the bread yet?

Candace said...

Winters - I tip my hat to you. Nicely done. I learned long agoo how good you are with words. And the starter for the other team takes the plate. Batter up!
(do baseball/goo puns make sense to an Englishman in New Yo- er, Paris?)

TG - it is, indeed, most alarming. I was able to pawn off several loaves and even more starters at Tae Kwon Do tonight (suckers!) and still I am up to my elbows in goo and loavage. Mostly because a lot of my loves from the larger of my 2 mismatched bread pans fell and are too unsightly to share (but still yummy.)

Squirrels love bread made from goo. We will find out htis evening whether or not opossums do. (Extra chunkage from a particularly disastrous loaf.)

I wanted to live on the moon when I was a little kid, though I must say that after watching Totall Recall many years later my desire was somewhat quenched. I also wanted to live under the sea. Anywhere weird, really. MI works.

Egan, I never make stuff up. My girlfriend and I were cackling a lot about various things (you chatted us both one day, whether you believe it or not) and I realised the importance of having a real-life confidante with whom you can discuss various naughty things and trade various naughty tips. I recommend you find one if you haven't already. Of course, CIndra has loads of tips, too. But I'm not sure whether you have multiple O clearance. . .?

Ldbug - for a normal person, it's not tricky in the least. For a semi-frazzled homeschooling mom of four, it's somewhat challenging. Especially if she gets cocky and starts adding stuff without double checking, or if she mixes up the measurements for the baking powder and the baking soda AGAIN! AAAAARRRRRRGH!!

Tshsmom - surprisingly, my kids asked for it this afternoon as a snack, even though we'd feasted on it for breakfast (again.) I'm happy! Also, we've been trying diff flavours of pudding mix in there. Banana is YUM!!!!

Who else wants goo? It's not hard to ship. :) But of course, you do understand the ramifications of accepting, so I understand that there will be relatively few takers.

A NATIONAL EMERGENCY HAS BEEN DECLARED!!!!!!!!

cindra said...

Candace, I never get to trade real good tips with you because you are on that other dumb chat. Argh. But yes, watch the scissor motion and remember to clean it when you are done or it will grow mold.

Candace said...

Lee - I'm so glad to know that at least the public has been informed. It lessens my feelings of guilt. Just a bit.


Cindra - well maybe you should do Gchat. Oh, that's right, the Mac thing. Not Macintosh like Winters's (FLASHER!! Please send pictures) raingear, but like a computer-like device. Poo. Yahoo hates me.

What about the melon-baller trick. Is that dangerous at all? I hear that extra lube is required. Extra lube is never a bad thing. I think.

cindra said...

I tried to Gchat. When I upgrade my operating system i can...sheesh. Until then...

Yeah, the melon-baller works, but in my experience you really want to steer clear of the ones with the serrated edges. And yes, lube is good. You know, in a pinch, olive oil works wonders and is actually better for your skin (and other membrane) than canola. Oh, and of course, never, ever forget the spatula.

Egan said...

Yahoo hates nobody. You think I need a real-life confidante? I have many of them Candace.

Candace said...

Cindra - I hear coconut oil is the King of Lube.

Hooray for the Spatulaaaaaaaaa!!!!

Egan - so now you're calling me a nobody. Thanks. I feel so loved.

Glad to hear it! ^_^

People who know Tae Kwon Do may have the advantage if the goo turns nasty. I think shipping it could be dodgy as they always ask you if your small envelope containing tidings of comfort and joy is actually dangerous. How would you answer that? Honestly I mean?
