Amber Update

Casa Amber was internetless for 3 weeks which means you've been me-less for the past 3 weeks, but hopefully not meat-less, because that would be a tragedy (unless, of course, you are a vegetarian, in which case, congrats on your meat-less-ness!). Anyway I just wanted to let you know that I should be posting more regularly now (at least once a week). I also wanted to very briefly and very pictorially tell you about how I passed the time during the aforementioned forced Internet sabbatical and what I've come to understand about life, the universe, and everything as a result.

Amber:

First, glad to have you back. An blog sabbatical by yours truly is meh, but for you to go on break is to disrupt the very fabric of the internet for near-200 people.

I practically grew up on Dr. Quinn, though I don't remember much about it. And if you pay for things with 100 Grand bars, the end result will be an Amber with fewer 100 Grand bars, which should be avoided at all costs.

YES! More Amber!

I love this post. But all this talk about food is making me feel a litte queasy. I too just consumed an inordinate amount of pizza. And chocolate. And orange soda. And I gotta stop talking about this...

Alison said...

That is some serious and delicious eating. Consider me impressed!

And I have to mention that the Captcha for this comment is the word "scary." Eek!

Is the perfect brownie maker the all edges one? See, I'm the anti-edge person, I want ALL center brownies. And I just realized I could possibly live that dream with nothing but a handy knife and my determination...

Amber updates are sooo much cooler than Clarissa updates.

This whole post was the Universe's way of laughing at me. I'm in the middle of giving up chocolate and BAM! 100 Grand and brownies.

Booooo.

Glad you have the interwebs back, though. And I'm impressed you survived!

Oh! Thank God! You didn't die! You were just kidnapped by Dr. Quinn. Phew. I was beginning to worry. I'm glad someone finally paid your ransom money. :)

Amiee said...

Don't go away like that again! Or at least give us a warning. That didn't come across as stalkerish did it?

Ashley R said...

Holy crap 100 Grands are so damn good. But the problem with using them as currency is that I'd just be selfishly broke because I'm eatin' it alllll for myself.

Dammit now I need to go and buy a bag of 100 Grands.

nikki said...

So the lesson is that giving up the internet well ruin one's diet?

Glad to have you back, Amber.

dolmadez said...

Ahhh! Love the Clarissa reference!

It looks like you really spent your time wisely. Kudos!

I've been watching a LOT of Seinfeld lately, truly appreciating it more as an adult than when I was under the age of 10. I sure wish I had Larry David as a rich uncle.

Simon said...

If we're making snack foods currency now, I demand the inclusion of Golden Grahams.

The Chicken's Consigliere said...

So...lots of TV and snacks...and drawing. Well done, Amber, well done. Slow clap. Waveeeee.

GRILLED CHEESE BURRITOS.

I guess they probably make those already in some way, shape or form...I just felt like writing it because that post - though laugh-out-loud funny - was burritoless. Big fan of the word "Italianoer."

Good to be back here.. Your Waldo post rocked the fucking roof off by the way, but I feel like telling you on this one cuz I'm a rebel and shit.

Georgina Dollface said...

I have totally missed your doodles and humour. Glad you are back.
Today's word-veri is "dipoloni", so yeah, now I feel a bit more Italianoier too! - G

vint4ge said...

Extra, as always. But, I still have a question : Do you have a job ?
You should do a book with all this stuff :)

One Blonde Girl said...

Wow. So many firsts and accomplishments. I love the side braid AND the 100 Grand AND once you've gone grilled, you never go back. The possibilities for grilled cheese sandwiches are endless.

Emily said...

Dude I was wondering where the hell you'd scuttled off to! Glad to see you're back in internetzzz land. Freakin' love 100 grand bars, I have to go to a specialist shop here in London to buy them. Also is it weird to find Larry David attractive, I swear he came out of the womb old, grumpy and strangely good looking...

RMb said...

you watched an entire season of seinfeld in 3 weeks? haha, i did something similar one time: during my second trimester, my doctor put me on bed rest (so basically the entire second half of my pregnancy i wasn't allowed to do anything except for go to the bathroom). at the begining of it, one of my roommates was between jobs. this meant for (about three weeks) she & i watched the entire series of friends. that's right: 10 years of must see tv squashed into less than a month.
then she realized this wasnt helping her job hunt & i noticed that i was starting to sound like chandler when i talked, so we gave it a rest.
luckilly, the last harry potter book came out right about then & i had a distraction for the next 48 hours.
anyway, glad you're back!

Helen said...

you're back!

I have never heard of a 100 grand bar, but I want one now. And I LOVED Dr Quinn until they randomly replaced the blonde girl with the one with brown hair. it made me sad.

And my Grandmother's incessant comments about climbing into the tV and scrubbing Sully because he was dirty.

Heather Taylor said...

Dr. Quinn was the one with the hot boyfriend who was an Indian or something right? I don't remember much about that show except for his open shirt. Was there a plot? My younger self does not think so.
