How I Make My Pancakes

People make pancakes all the time and use regular batter to cook them. They maybe add fruit with that. That is okay but I like to mix things up with my breakfast. This is how I make my pancakes and feel free to take notes.

  1. I use pancake mix and mix it with water in a measuring cup according to the box instructions.
  2. Next, I add vanilla extract to make the flavor of the batter pop.
  3. Then I sprinkle in some ground cinnamon or all-spice since it contains cinnamon and nutmeg.
  4. Lastly, I add a bit of cayenne pepper to give it a spice with the sweetness of the batter.
  5. Then I pour the batter in a greased medium-sized pan over medium-high heat.
  6. I flip the pancake over after the bubbles stop forming.
  7. When I use up all of the batter and stack it up, I will strawberry jam in between the pancakes.
  8. Lastly, I pour the maple syrup over the stack.
  9. I dig in!

Fountains of Wayne - Stacy's Mom [Instrumental]


Remember the ol' hit back in 2004, "Stacy's Mom" by Fountains of Wayne? Now you can sing along to it! Man, I love this song...

Tracy's Dad (Remake of "Stacy's Mom")

Tracy's dad, he really got it bad
Tracy's dad, he really got it bad
Tracy's dad, he really got it bad
Tracy's dad, he really got it bad

Tracy, can I come over after school? (after school)
We can hang around by the pool (hang by the pool)
Did your dad get back from his business trip? (business trip)
Is he there, or is he trying to give me the slip? (give me the slip)

You know, I'm not the little girl that I used to be
I'm all grown up now, baby can't you see

Tracy's dad, he really got it bad
He's all I want and he's all I ever had
Tracy, can't you see, you're just not the guy for me
I know it might seem sad but I'm in love with Tracy's dad

Tracy's dad, he really got it bad
Tracy's dad, he really got it bad

Tracy, do you remember when you mowed your lawn? (mowed your lawn)
Your dad came out with just a towel on (towel on)
I could tell he liked me from the way he stared (the way he stared)
And the way he said, "You missed a spot over there" (a spot over there)

And I know that you think it's just a fantasy
But since your mom walked out, your dad could use a girl like me

Tracy's dad, he really got it bad
He's all I want and he's all I ever had
Tracy, can't you see, you're just not the guy for me
I know it might seem sad but I'm in love with Tracy's dad

Tracy's dad, he really got it bad
He's all I want and he's all I ever had
Tracy can't you see, you're just not the guy for me,
I know it might seem sad but oh oh
(I know it might seem sad)
I'm in love with (Tracy's dad oh oh)
(Tracy's dad oh oh)
Tracy, can't you see, you're just not the guy for me
I know it might seem sad but
I'm in love with Tracy's mom

Shakespeare Dialogue

As I was trying to clear out old classwork - because I'm a hoarder - I found an assignment that I got an A on in English when I was in the eighth grade. For the assignment, we had to write a dialogue using language of the Shakespeare era. It was a group assignment but I came up with most of it. I think it's funny but is it funny to others?


Gretchen was waiting outdoors by the supermarket for a friend. As she waited for a while, ole Samuel came around the corner of the sidewalk. He instantly became smitten when he had glanced at Gretchen standing there. He started to rush up to her.

"Hello," Samuel greeted.

"Hello," Gretchen responded.

"Lovely day, isn't it?" he asked.

"It's a bit humid."

"I can tell. You're real humid."

"What?"

"Sorry. I would like to go the theater with you."

"I would but I'm meeting a friend."

Samuel started to mutter to himself.

"What?" Gretchen asked.

"Oh, nothing. I just think you should have the time to go somewhere with me."

"But I'm meeting a friend."

"Stop being a younker."

"After you stop being an evil-eyed dogfish."

"Well, you started it."

"No, you did."

"Why did I ever ask you in the first place? You're nothing but a clot pole!"

Gretchen gasped. "Go away!"

"It would be my pleasure."

Samuel walked away in fury. After a few seconds, he walked back towards Gretchen.

"Wasn't that weird?" he asked.

"How so?" Gretchen questioned.

"I came up to you, trying to sweet-talk you. Then I just storm off while the last thing I said was very jaded."

"I suppose so it was weird. I might've been a little dog-hearted."

"Yes, you were."

Gretchen glared at him.

"I mean I could admit I was a bit greasy. Can we start over?"

"Sure. Why not?"

"Great. So do you want to go out?"

"No."

"Why not?!" Samuel whined.

"I told you almost twice."

"Why do you have to be such a rabbit-sucker?"

"Listen, nut-hook, my friend will be here in two-point-O minutes so can you wrap this up?"

"No, I will not wrap this up! You can't change the time on your wrist watch to make time going to a theater?"

"Ha! Wrist watches aren't even invented yet."

"Look, stop being purpled for a second and say yes to my question."

"First, answer my question: can you be white-livered somewhere else?"

"Snipe, please. I was on my way to another place anyway."

He stormed off away from Gretchen. Then five more seconds later, he walked back towards her. "Why did I just do that?"

"What? Walk off?"

"Yes. Wasn't that ironic? I thought you were honey-tongued. That's why I came up to you. And I walk off again looking at you as if you were a canker blossom."

"To agree, that was ironic but your attitude towards me was really, really grizzled."

"People can change."

"Then let's go through some things. I... will not... go to the theater with you. Understood?"

"Sure... egg-shell."

"Powdered wig wearing jerk!"

If I Had a Million Dollars...

Since I am a dreamer, I thought I should open up some dreams for this blog.
  1. Spend half and divide it up to donate to three charities
  2. Buy both of my parents mansions or at least bigger houses
  3. Give $50 to every vagabond I see
  4. Send $20 to as many relatives I know as a holiday gift
  5. Buy my brother a Playstation 4 or an advanced gaming station
  6. Save $100,000 for a good college
  7. Spend $100 for personal shopping
  8. Save the rest for emergencies

Jack White - Sixteen Saltines



Sharing my favorite song by Jack White. It has the perfect video for such a song since the song is about absolutely nothing. But the video is really artsy, colorful and expressive. Once you see this video, you have to show it to as many people as you know because it is that crazy. Hope you enjoy and birthday wishes to the man behind a sports chant.

Happy Birthday to Jack White

Happy birthday to the king of garage rock, ladies and gentlemen, Jack White! I love me some Jack White. I wasn't there for the White Stripes but I'm young so I'm catching up to everything. Been a fan since two years ago and proud of it. He turns 39 today so next year he will be 40. I just want to wish him a happy birthday either though he doesn't know me. Keep making hits, my king of rock!
