Now Playing Tracks

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.

Your bottled water habit is sucking California dry

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.

Turn on the tap instead Follow micdotcom

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

BECAUSE IT IS EFFECTING THE EXACT AREA I LIVE IN

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

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.

Don't ever hesitate. Reblog this. TUMBLR RULE. When you see it, REBLOG IT.
