My love affair with Starbucks

So I went to Starbucks today and like always it was a wonderful treat. I am just discovering the petite treats and boy were they a treat. I only got one but tomorrow I will get more. This treat is like a rocky road cake and it made me very happy. You should check it out. 

Be sure to treat yourself. This was my reward for editing and finals.

Rihanna Rolling Stone Interview

The cover of Rolling Stone is sure to catch the eye with Rihanna on the cover. Supposedly the interview has left many people wondering if the singers confession about S&M may have been inappropriate given that Rihanna in so many ways has become the young face for domestic violence.

“I like to be spanked. Being tied up is fun. I like to keep it spontaneous. Sometimes whips and chains can be overly planned – you gotta stop, get the whip from the drawer downstairs. . . . I’d rather have him use his hands.”

She later gave advise about sex toy shopping  "“Don’t go to a sex store tipsy.”

While her interests may appear to be a contradiction to a troubling time in her past, what does it say about a woman's sexuality that after leaving an abusive relationship that she can not discuss her sexuality. If society really did feel that her interests were that inappropriate, why inquire about it knowing what her societal role was suppose to be? (a survivor of domestic violence.) What are your thoughts? Should Rihanna scale back her interests or not have them at all?

What are your thoughts?

Eight bodies discovered in a missing woman case

According to a report from CNN, eight bodies have been discovered in a search for Shannan  Gilbert. She has been missing since last May.  According to the report, Shannan was a prostitute and the bodies that have been discovered are believed to be the bodies of other prostitutes.
Here is an excerpt from the article.
"As authorities searched for clues concerning her disappearance last year, they uncovered a total of eight corpses found in various stages of decomposition."

 "The first four bodies were discovered stuffed into bushes on a quarter-mile stretch of waterfront property on Oak Beach, indicating “they were dumped there by the same person or persons,” said Richard Dormer, Suffolk County Police commissioner, in December. “It’s too coincidental that there were four bodies in the same location.”The remains of the fifth body were found about a mile from where the other corpses were discovered, he said, refusing to disclose exactly where the three additional remains were found on Monday."

Misadventures in cooking

I tried ditching the coffee today for french toast. Make sure that you are eating breakfast.
New post coming later today. Posting schedule coming soon as well. Be sure to mark your calendars once you see the schedule.

Be informed,

French toast recipe: Never doubt simplicity

1 egg (per slice of bread)

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Break egg into a bowl and whisk the egg
Dip bread on both sides into the whisked egg
Into a hot skillet 2 tbsp of butter
1 tbsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
While in the skillet shake cinnamon onto the bread. Do this to both sides
Cook until light brown

A lot of recipes have the cinnamon mixed in with the eggs as well as vanilla. I just think it takes a way from the cinnamon flavor.
