cooking accomplished! trial run of cheesy egg muffins finally done, tried a new recipe (using chicken instead of pork because tired chibi communicating via phone with tired kitteh equals oopsies sometimes and we’re adaptable, really,) and mushroom gravy beef is all prepped and waiting for morning.
so many new ingredients to have on hand, though… different oils/fats, new seasonings… it’s kinda fun, but also daunting because now i need to reorganize the cabinets.
Oooh I need to try the mushroom gravy beef recipe sometime!
we’ll let you know how it turns out! i’m liking the fact that i can set it all up tonight before bed, and pop the insert in the cooker when i leave tomorrow for work to do its thing!
wish me luck, i’m about to start a cook-a-thon while doing laundry on a low-mental-spoons day. if you don’t hear from me around dinnertime, send help, i’ve been taken captive by the slow-cooker mushroom-gravy-beef-thing.
Imagine your icon seductively whispering “Omelette du Fromage” into your ear.
Tashvi: why would I do that?
me: dinner suggestion?
Tashvi: I suppose, but…
me: go try it out on Caillen, see what he says.
it is hilarious to me that my new swimsuit arrived with packing paper stuffed into the pseudo-bra cups so they wouldn’t lose their shape.
i mean… they just sorta tumbled out at me while i was taking it out of the bag! boop! two vaguely boob-shaped balls of packing paper, right in my lap.
paleo chili for brekky, om nom nom… so far, this diet shift is going steadily and well.
If you’re reading this, chances are very high that your home has at least one — and maybe more! — magic appliance that produces clean water suitable for drinking. That’s one reason to avoid paying for bottled water.
Another reason? There’s a good chance the water you’re buying at the supermarket was bottled in California, a state currently enduring a severe drought.

EVERYONE PLEASE AT LEAST TAKE A QUICK SECOND TO LOOK AT THIS

Lots of people believe bottled water is safer and cleaner than tap water, when in reality there’s no evidence proving such a thing.
Penn & Teller’s Bullshit!: Bottled Water segment, gives a very good and thorough summary of the bottled water culture https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHx6BX3HZJc
You want better water? Buy a Zero filter. SRSLY. Stop buying bottled if possible. You need water with you? Get reusable acrylic or glass water bottles (wrapped in a silicon sleeve) and fill it up from your filter pitcher. SAVE MONEY, SAVE MY STATE
omG I SEARCHED GOOGLE FOR A SEWING MACHINE DIAGRAM AND THIS CAME UP I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING
Hey bjd knitters, I’m looking for some tiny tiny circulars (1.5 and 1.75mm) with really sharp points (the ones I have are hell for knitting laceweight because their points aren’t sharp enough). Any recommendations?
Reblogging for you cause there’s enough knitters following me that I’m sure someone must have an answer for you.
have you tried Hiya-hiya? they do an incredible range of sizes, and the points are tiny.
my favorite tidbit about rome is that in the mid-1800s one of the popes didnt like the statues in rome having dicks so he ordered them knocked off. fast forward to the last decade or so and art historians in conjunction with the vatican are trying to erm. restore. the statues. but the dicks were just. kept in a box. so art historians are going around rome, with a box of dicks, trying to match them up to their owner.

Reblog this if you would buy a book with an LGBTQ main character, whose sexuality was not the primary focus of the novel
If you would not, reblog this.
Look at the success of Welcome to Nightvale. Done.
ANY novel where a character’s sexuality isn’t the main focus, really.
four rows of lace (two per leg,) a bow, and a length of elastic later, i have deconstructed the failed bloomers and harvested the spoils. now to find the OTHER pair that needs harvesting… because i am NOT letting 3 rows/leg worth of Venice lace just go into the trash!
