Prepare the pasta. While it’s cooking, mix the mayonnaise, vinegar, sweetened condensed milk and sugar to make the sauce. Drain the pasta, mix in the sauce, add the vegetables. Chill overnight.
The sauce sounds like an odd combination of things that would not be good together, but trust me, it’s awesome. I really loathe traditional macaroni salads, so when my mother found this one, I was thrilled. And while you can serve this as soon as it’s chilled, it really tastes better if everything has had time to kind of mingle, so letting it chill overnight is best. A word of warning, this makes a LOT of pasta salad. This is best for a pot luck rather than dinner at home, unless you have a lot of people coming over.
I don’t post or reply or talk on LJ anymore, because I no longer feel free to do that. Along the way, I have gathered people that call themselves friends, but aren’t really. They’re people I know, or people who are friends of my friends. But they’re not really my friends. And I’ve sort of been censoring myself because I don’t want these people to know how I think or feel. I don’t want to share myself with them.
I have made this journal mostly friends-only, going back and locking almost all of the posts. Tomorrow, I’m going to cull my friends list. If you’re cut, I hope you’ll understand. If you don’t, well then, I guess you don’t. But I’m tired of tiptoeing through a place that I used to enjoy and getting stomach aches over how somebody might take something, or worry that somebody might tell somebody something I said out of context. I’m done with that.

I don't require credit, though I'm enough of an attention whore that I'd really love it if you did make mention of me. But absolutely DO NOT hotlink. Save 'em to your own computer. Thank you.
Not that I mind the result anyway.
|What Greek Goddess are you?|
You are Hera!
You are most like Hera, goddess of marriage, family, and motherhood, and queen of the gods (wife of Zeus). You usually find yourself in leadership roles because you do not like working beneath anyone. You are dedicated to and very protective of your family and those close to you, but you are also somewhat possessive. If anyone attempts to take what is yours, including your man, you let the world know of your discontent. You are very competitive with a bit of a jealous bone...so you make it your intent to never be bested.

Though, how come tygie_bard got a virgin goddess, and her picture has BOOBIES?
Your result for Which Were Animal Would You Be? Test...
You are a Were-Fox!
90% fox, 40% wolf, 10% horse, 40% tiger, 50% leopard, 40% rat and 20% bear!
A fox is a predator, yet they can also be scavengers and foragers.
As a werefox you will be agile and athletic. You will take your prey by surprise. You won't be only dieting on raw flesh, but will eat a variety of foods including fruits and berriers. Therefore, your new persona will be easy to hide from humans.
You will be mostly nocturnal. If someone does manage to track you your cleverness and cunning will make it a very difficult task for them. You will easily confuse those persuing you, because you will be very unpredictable.
You will have one mate, and a lucky mate indeed. Foxes are monogamous creatures.
Wait... *reads list again* Okay, fox, wolf, horse, tiger, leopard, rat, bear... uh-huh, uh-huh... Umm...
Where's the OTTER????
EDITED TO ADD:
This year I've been busy!
Last Saturday I pulled over and changed arami's flat tire (15 points). In July I gave quillismightier a Dutch Oven (-10 points). In May I put gum in tygie_bard's hair (-12 points). Last week I committed genocide... Sorry about that, rabies (-5000 points). Last Sunday I invaded Iraq, broke it, and couldn't glue it back together before Mom got home (-1012 points).
Overall, I've been naughty (-6019 points). For Christmas I deserve a moldy sandwich!
