Veronica Mars – CliqueClack Flashback (Originally for Clique Clack Television)

Flashback: Fall, 2005.  Zoom in on a younger version of me and you’d find someone who never watched television.

Well, not never,  but never anything on primetime. I’d watch a spare show here or there, but I wasn’t devoted to any shows. Television just wasn’t my thing. I hadn’t grown up with it and I certainly had no attachment to it then. Ironic, considering what I do now, right?

All my friends were talking about this new show, Veronica Mars. Apparently, it was the greatest secret no one was watching. It was smart, funny, sexy… everything you’d want in a show. So what the hell, I thought. I’ll tune into this show’s second season and catch up.

And that was the night my life changed forever.

No-Bake Coconut S’more Bars – the great recipe born from my tears (Originally for Clique Clack Food)

Once upon a time,  I was invited to a holiday party.

I had never been invited to one before just as myself. I’d been to plenty of holiday get-togethers and potlucks, but my parents had always cooked. And then, my internship was throwing a potluck Christmas party, and I was invited. And totally stoked.

After much consideration I chose this recipe for ultra easy coconut tarts to make. Easy, rich, and would make a lot if I multiplied it. What could go wrong? I mean, besides everything?

Sizing up the boys of SYTYCD – Who will make the top four? (Originally for Clique Clack Television)

As far as I’m concerned, there are two important milestones on So You Think You Can Dance: the Top 10 (when you get to tour) and the Top 4 (when you get in the finale). Who actually wins seems to me to be arbitrary and impossible to predict, and doesn’t necessarily denote anything. After all, Travis Wall was the runner-up, and look where he is now, right?

I think, as far as the girls go, Ashleigh and Ellenore have a pretty solid lock on those top two spots. Noelle and Kathryn are, as far as I can tell, interchangeable, and I’m not even sure which one of the Bobbesy twins went home this week, which is a bad sign. Mollee could maybe provide an upset, but her personality is so damn annoying I highly doubt it.  Congrats, Ellenore and Ashleigh, unless you screw up majorly, you’ve already won!

The boys, on the other hand, are still slightly up in the air.
