Writer's Block: Talk to the animals @ 12:33 am

What would you do if your pet dog or cat suddenly started to talk to you, but nobody else could hear it? Would you assume you'd gone mad or simply be happy for the company? Would you try to convince your friends and family or would you be satisfied keeping it to yourself?


Maaaan, my cat would just insult me incessantly anyway. I don't need to understand that any more clearly than I already do. I think the puking up a hairball on my bed whenever I come home to visit my parents is a clear enough signal. ;)

Writer's Block: Compare and contrast @ 01:42 pm

What ten words would you use to describe yourself? If your friends were asked to describe you, how closely would all the lists match up?

I think I am: neurotic, optimistic, perky, unmotivated, flighty, funny, talented, snarky, smart, and a little bit mean.

For the second part of the question--I don't know about that. Most people aren't the same person around EVERYONE, you know? There are different masks we put on for different people, this is nothing new. I think a few adjectives would be the same across the board: smart, funny, and perky. Some of my friends think I am more talented, some people think I am less so. ;) Some friends would never imagine that I could be mean, and some are totally going to be all, "yeah, she's kind of a bitch." I come across much better online than I do offline--offline I go off onto the most random tangents or forget what I was going to say mid-sentence, and people I know via the intertubes don't really get to see that, so they don't get that I can be flighty. Ask Jan or Sammi though and they'll definitely tell you I can be a bit spacy (they still love me!)

Anyway, yeah. Long story short: no, the lists wouldn't match up. It's coo', though. You save different parts of yourself for different people.

Writer's Block: I May Be Crazy @ 06:14 pm

What does this Rorschach blot look like to you?
Okay, honestly, all Rorschach blots look like pelvises to me, but I tried to move beyond that. I see a coyote's head, kind of glaring menacingly at me. The more I think of it, the scarier it is. Eep!

Mango sticky rice @ 07:05 pm

Mango sticky rice is my favorite desert at my local Thai place.

So I decided to make some at home!

Onigiri! @ 05:40 pm

I made my very first onigiri today! Just one to try it out, but I made a crapload of rice, so I'll probably make one or two for lunch tomorrow as well. For my filling, I used bonito flakes and soy sauce, and mixed in with the rice (which is just your typical short grain sushi rice, cooked in my rice cooker) is wasabi furikake. I had no problems shaping it like a lot of people do. . .my issue came with trying to make the nori look pretty. As you can see, I kind of failed at that. :( But that's okay, because it was delicious!

*puddle!* @ 09:45 pm

So, saw Angels and Demons today. Was kind of crappy, as I had imagined it would be (the movies so far have been better than the books--Dan Brown is a crap writer, but I had to read these during one of my Religion and Culture classes), but HOH MAH GOD. FATHER EWAN MCGREGOR. HOH. MAH. GOD. Sammi and I just about had a Catholigasm. How about trading an hour in heaven for an eternity in hell, Father?

I have a pretty disturbing fetish. I know this. I accept it.

Oh snappeth, son! @ 08:46 pm

Such a chef, pfft. @ 12:46 am

Sammi came over today, and I decided to make bread without my bread machine, for the first time ever. By hand! I made French peasant bread with fresh rosemary in it, and felt very 17th century peasanty. ;) I also made fresh lemonade, which is also a 17th century French creation, but, you know, not for peasants. Peasants drank barley water for fun. Mmm. Anyway, the bread turned out surprisingly good! It was much flatter than I had intended (it was supposed to be kinda. . ball shaped), but I don't think it affected the texture too much because it didn't seem dense and wasn't tough or anything. It ended up tasting a little bit like the bread at Macaroni Grill, if you've had that.

(That is, of course, the lemonade in the background.)
We also had triscuits and "cheese" spray. Like Sammi said, you feel really good about eating a cheese product, which should be dairy, not needing any refridgeration. But whatever, it's delicious in a redneck sort of way. It's also very artistic. I drew this portrait of Sammi with cheese spray. It is extremely accurate. Some might say that her enigmatic smile is comparable to that of Mona Lisa's, no?

And then we watched Fanny Hill. And that was our day. The end.

I have chosen. . .THE DRESS. @ 08:55 pm

Screw wenches (Wenches: "Aye, we love screwin'!"). Also, screw being comfortable. THIS is the dress I am getting for the ren faire:

It doesn't come with the hat or the baubles, but I don't think the hat really looks right with it anyway (I'm still thinking about getting a French hood) and as for the shiny baubles, I probably won't get any. Don't want to violate any sumptuary laws, you know. ;) The dress comes in black, dark green or burgundy. . .I'm not sure which color to get. Black seems the most accurate, but dark green looks really pretty on me. I don't knowwwww.
