Happy Birthday to our Girl

Yes, “our girl”. She is Twitter famous and that makes her our girl. You surely know I’m talking about Abigail by now. Today is her third anniversary of her birthday, and what a beautiful celebration it is! Today is a a good day for a birthday, friends!

Now, with all of my excitement and the many “happy birthday” wishes I said to her, not once did she react differently than any other day. To put it simply, the girl has no idea today is hers because every single day is the best day ever, if you were to see it through her eyes. And, let’s be real, she lives her best life possible every single day!

We definitely have a happy golden and she is such a sweet, loving soul that I cannot help but want to share her with you.

That brings me to another post, which will be for another day because I do not want to take away from this thread, which is to wish our girl, Abby the golden, a very happy birthday!

Not Abby, but this would be her look of disdain, had I taken a picture of her in a party hat.

Butterfinger, What?

A few weeks ago I had half of a butterfinger; the next day MtnMan had the other half. We both decided that something has changed because it’s not the same good butterfinger flavor it once was. According to Gregg with 2 g’s, they changed the recipe, which explains why it is no longer a good candybar.

(notice the change in packaging, it’s boring, this should have been my first clue)

My first assumption was that they went “healthier” because it is not as good as it once was. Okay, I admit, the assumption was more in liking to judgement and I was judging the candy maker hard. I mean, it’s a fucking candybar for fucks sake, that in itself, is unhealthy. Seriously, what candybar is touted as being healthy? There are none, unless they claim to be a protein bar and it turns out those aren’t as healthy as the gym nuts want you to think they are. Have you had one? It sits like a brick in your gut. That cannot be good for you, but I have digressed from the original reason for this post. Let’s get back on point. After a little research, I can say with 100% certainty that the recipe was not changed to make it healthier.

While doing research, I feasted on a butterfinger, with the same conclusion as I’ve had over the last 3 consumed candy bars: they are no longer the crunchy toffee like bar that would stick to your teeth kind of goodness.

My research has found that the original Butterfinger debuted in 1923 and since then has been rehomed a few times, with the latest being in 2018 by another American based candy company. It’s a name I’ve never heard of and because I strongly disagree with their abuse of power, I do not feel they are worth mentioning by name. They feel it was time to “refine” the candy bar. *eye roll*

“We started with the key ingredients — peanuts, cocoa, and milk — behind this bar that people are obsessed with and love, and looked at how we could make it even better,”

Okay, first of all, Karen, the the bar that we love was not in need of change, hence, the bar “people are obsessed with and love”. There is no making perfection better with change. Just stop already.

the goal of a smoother, less gritty mouthfeel and stronger chocolate flavor. It has been taken up a notch.

BUT, and this is HUGE, the gritty mouthfeel is what made butterfinger a butterfinger!!! WHY change it. Just create a new fucking candybar and leave the butterfinger out of it!

Seriously, it is no longer a butterfinger so just take it off the shelves already. This comes from someone who rarely eats a candybar, but when I do, I want it to be like the same bar I enjoyed as a kid and I really do not think that is being unreasonable.

You should also know that this company also bought Baby Ruth’s, so that’s probably no longer good because, well, refinement. *eye roll* I don’t have it in me to try a Baby Ruth at this crossroads we find ourselves in. I just cannot handle that disappointment right now, so if you so desire, you could be the one to try it, on my behalf for research purposes. I wonder if that bar even has peanuts now or maybe they cut out the caramel. :/

If you are like Gregg (with 2 g’s), you will still find enjoyment in having a butterfinger, although admittedly not as good, still worth eating. That is okay to be in his group. I am not in his group. I will not be eating another butterfinger and when halloween comes around, I will keep all of the candy corn for myself and give the butterfingers away. lol.

In closing, allow me to say that somethings do not need changed, nor refined. I mean, what the fuck does that even mean when referring to perfection of a butterfinger. It was good for a reason!

A Rant that Has been Brewing

Holy fuck. This week can suck it! What the fuck is wrong with some people? Seriously, some people do not deserve the pleasure of socializing on the internet.

“wow! I’m going broke jerking off to you!”

(he took me private once, for 3 minutes, and I see him daily. )

“for a 44 year old you are sexy”

(why do some find this to be a compliment. Sexy is sexy, no matter the age, don’t be a dick)

“what I want is a bj, but you are not near.”

(you’re on a fucking cam site you dickdweeb!)

“hey, miss me?”

(um, I see you daily and you went private in 2018 for 1 minute, so… BAN. I’m too nice, that is what this week has reminded me.)

“you look bored.”

(I’ve been asking you for the last 5 minutes how you are doing, I cannot imagine why I might look bored since you are beaming with so much personality it makes me happy to see you return to my room for the 20th time today.)

“would you ever ‘do-it’ with a family member”

(why is this even normalized. Anyone that promotes this is to blame, in my unsolicited opinion, whether it is on your actual site, or your “network”. Stop normalizing incest for fuck’s sake!)

“what are you going to do for me?”

(um, you are in my cam room within minutes of me turning my cam on, and you are NEVER going to go private, so what I’m about to do is free and I should have done this 3 months ago. BAN)

I could go on, but you really don’t need to be forced to endure the week I have had. I realize this is part of it, and it is what it is, but when this is the majority of my week, by Friday I am fucking over it. Do not take kindness for stupidity. If you come in, at least respond to my greetings and willingness to have a fucking conversation, without the pressure of going private. That is, unless you say- I’m wacking it while I look at you, humma humma. Again, don’t be a fucking dick.

And, while I’m on a rant, and believe me, this is only the beginning because I really want to continue the vent session when I turn my cam on, but that’s bad for business and that’s not what my room has ever been about… although, it might be because I honestly don’t know if I can turn it off now. LOL! Anyway, my next rant is about blinkers in vehicles. Is a blinker an add-on when buying now because some people don’t own a fucking blinker it would seem. How fucking lazy do you have to be that you cannot use your finger to push down on the blinker arm? Seriously, how fucking lazy? On my way to the store (with Abby happy in the back seat) some jackass in a big, new, sparkly truck that has never been off road or hauled hay, was in the right lane and seriously waited until his lane was turning right, mine was going straight, to jump in front of me without a blinker. He was slowing way down, as though he was making the turn, but nope, when I was on his left, he decides it’s a good time to slowly cut me off and then, he comes to a complete stop when our lane had the right of way. Who gave this jackass a license? WHO? And so we are completely stopped, waiting for everyone with the yield to go ahead, then once moving and the lanes turn into 2 again, he doesn’t get over to the right as he goes 35 mph in a 55, nope. He waits until I decide to switch lanes and again, without a blinker. Since you are probably wondering, no, I did not honk or give him the finger, not even once. In Texas, I would have. lol. But, as I passed him I had to get a good look at what stupid fuck looks like today. He seemed aloof and everything clueless, so makes since he’d be driving a large extended cab truck so he can just run over everyone else on the roads.

Don’t come into my cam room today if you have douchebag tendencies, I truly cannot deal with that. Ha!

Okay, thanks for this therapy session, I am turning my cam back on. Wish me luck and send me happy vibes and money signs! lol

The Bonneville Lake

As we were driving over the salt flats on our way to SLC, I was curious and googled the history of the flats. I have to say, it’s quite interesting what mother nature can do over hundreds of years and centuries of time.

I remember a blurp in school about the salt flats, but it was just that, a day or maybe even half an hour of discussing the great phenomenon known as the Salt Flats.

You probably already know this, but I’m extremely fascinated by it and now I will share it with you, because that’s what I do.

The Salt Flats used to be Lake Bonneville that engulfed much of the Great Basin, and it was expansive. The lake dried up and shrank below its outlet, turning the water to salt and evaporating what water was left. Interesting! Even more interesting than that is that this occurred over 30,000 years ago. WHAT?

Now that I know this, I predict that the same is happening to the Great Salt Lake. MtnMan’s parents used to go boating and grew up swimming in the lake, but over the years it became too salty and the buoyancy made it too hard to swim in and I’m guessing the salt was too harsh on the boats. Today you won’t find even a sailboat on the water, nor sunbathers on the shore; the water line is slowly receding and will one day become another Salt Flat, just as Lake Bonneville did 30,000 years ago.

Wow, this fascinates me.

How Was Your Weekend?

I normally ask this while on cam, but since I won’t be online until Thursday, I will ask you here.

How was your weekend?

Long Overdue

There was a time when I was exceptionally good at blogging, and giving thanks to those that are thoughtful to send gifts. I am embarrassed to say that I have months worth of thanks to give and I’m just now making this post.

Nicster- you have always been generous with gifts, and nothing has changed even after years of knowing each other. Thank you. I hope to wear the red garter lingerie in a video soon. The Turquoise tank top was a hard one to acquire and I’m still not sure what happened to the original one, but the 2nd one took a long detour around the world before arriving 3 months later… which makes me chuckle each time I wear it.

Stephen- I absolutely love the snow boots and wore them just the other day. I’m sure I was a little over dressed for the locals, but 40 degrees and windy is still very cold to this Texan. lol. I appreciate your kindness and, again, your thoughtfulness.

Bubba- I know this is extremely overdue, but I have felt like an asshole for not posting a thank you for the elephant skirt. I wear it around the house for now, but once the sun comes out and it warms up to 70ish, I’ll be wearing it out and about. I love it!

BigReg- I love, love, love the panties (all of them) and the blue dress is one of my favorites. Of course, it’s still 30-40 degrees here, even when the sun is high in the sky, so I’ll be waiting to wear it out of the house for when it warms up. lol. Thank you for your kindness and generosity. I appreciate you!

Mark (AM)- the lingerie is beautiful and well made which means I will be wearing it on cam for many years to come and the skirt is sexy and I will be making new content in that soon. Thank you so much for being generous and perusing my wishlist; you are thoughtful!

Mike- thank you, thank you, thank you! I love every pair of the socks that you sent in the 26 bundle of nothing but socks! OMG. I’ve got socks and more socks! There is not one pair in that set that I do not LOVE. I had a difficult time choosing which pair to wear first, and after about 20 minutes of hem-hawing, I went with the argyles, which are my favorite pattern after elephants. Thank you! That was an amazing surprise that even got Abby excited upon my opening the package. You are incredibly thoughtful!

Fika

It is good to learn new words, and it’s especially good to slow down and appreciate the good in the world around you. This is something that I think we all need to do a little more of.

SW Chicken Recipe

I know, I know, I’m a homemaker now and always talking recipes, but this is too good not to share with you.

SW Chicken Recipe:

Add paprika, a pinch of pepper and a dash of salt. Rub liberally until the chicken is covered in the rub.

Move your grill to the SW side of your house and grill for approximately 35 minutes, or until done.

I was not expecting the relocation of the grill and that made me laugh out loud!

Video Suggestions Welcome

I will be filming new content this weekend and again in a couple weeks when we are in Salt Lake City.

I have a list of ideas, but as always, I welcome suggestions and requests from you. Obviously, within reason. If you want me to masturbate off the side of a bridge, that is not realistic and that will go straight into the “fuck no” pile. If you want me streaking through town, that will also end up in the same stack. However, if you’d like to be realistic in your suggestions please add them to this post or email me at angel@lonestarangel.com and I will gladly give it some consideration. Also, being a member when making a suggestion does help as far as relevance and which suggestions I consider to be important.

I Am Human. I Am Not a Baker.

I realized today that I am no baker, but I sure do love to bake, all the same. I have gotten much better with the mess and the kitchen does manage to stay somewhat clean and organized, so that’s an improvement.

Today I baked Donut Muffins. It was easy enough and I wanted something to send with MtnMan to give to the gentleman that made homemade caramel for me a couple weeks ago. I’ve got it all mixed and ready to pour into the muffin tins when I suddenly realized that I used baking soda when it called for baking powder. I know baking is a science, so I knew this was a huge mistake and a stupid one at that! I ALWAYS double check when using either baking soda or power with the recipe because it changes everything. All of the baked goods I’ve made over the last few months have called for baking soda so I grabbed it and didn’t double check for the first time ever. Oy! So, scrapped the first batch and started over. Thankfully it was a simple recipe and I had a fresh carton of milk, or else I’d have been annoyed and would have had to ask MtnMan to stop for milk on his way home from work.

I am not a baker. I am human. It happens. Although with that said, I don’t think it ever happened to Mom. She had it together in the kitchen and running a household. You’d think she had a degree in home economics but she didn’t; she was just good at making it all look easy. I am a disaster in the kitchen but I’m having fun learning in my 40’s what most figure out in their 20’s. Ha!

  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup margarine, melted
  • ¾ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour 
  • ¼ cup margarine, melted
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 24 mini-muffin cups.
  • Mix 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup margarine, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Stir in the milk, then mix in the baking powder and flour until just combined. Fill the prepared mini muffin cups about half full.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until the tops are lightly golden, 15 to 20 minutes.
  • While muffins are baking, place 1/4 cup of melted margarine in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together 1/2 cup of sugar with the cinnamon. Remove muffins from their cups, dip each muffin in the melted margarine, and roll in the sugar-cinnamon mixture. Let cool and serve.
