I BURNT THE DAMN BREAD AGAIN. 🤬
It was already going pretty badly (messed up the mixing somehow, had to free the kitchen for a roommate, the dough rose too much...) But I was SO SURE I won't burn it like last time. The recipe says 45 minutes, right? So I set my timer to 30 minutes, that's gotta be early enough to catch it!
IT WAS NOT. 💩 😡 NICE CRUNCHY CARBON CRUST, YUM.
Maybe it's also because the dough was already effed up, I don't know. Stupid bread.
Also, I have decided that Captain Marvel joins Bend It Like Beckham in the They Should Just Have Made This Gay club.
I am increasingly not okay with Marvel.
When stuff like this happens and considering what one of their top people is like... https://www.theguardian.com/books/2019/aug/16/art-spiegelmans-marvel-essay-refused-publication-for-orange-skull-trump-dig
Here's that essay in full that Marvel didn't want to publish https://www.theguardian.com/books/2019/aug/17/art-spiegelman-golden-age-superheroes-were-shaped-by-the-rise-of-fascism
I've started reading Altered Carbon and it's intriguing so far... aside from the way all female characters are described in terms of their attractiveness.
It's really nice to realize that these days, a writer couldn't do this without getting flack for it.
I wish this wasn't the default for the last few decades. I could totally buy it as a narrative decision in this book, since it's a limited 1st person PoV, if it didn't push all my alienated reader buttons.
Uhhhhhh is AO3 okay? I just got a kudos notification email that says "[username], [same username], [same username], [same username], [same username] and [same username] left kudos on [my fic]."
Anyone else has this? I don't want to report a one-time weirdness. (I'm definitely keeping the email tho, it looks hilarious.)
*annoyed sigh* I wish nature-inclined people wouldn't so readily bend the truth to produce easily digestible scary pronouncements to promote their chosen savior plan.
Currently watching a 90s movie about permaculture, and in the last 5 minutes I've been told that modern agriculture has invented:
* monoculture fields
* wheat + rice + potatoes as keystone foodstaples
* pest problems
That sounds... suspect. I remember at least one fairly old, popular book that mentions locusts, wink wink.
Positivity, dammit: I finally made that red lentil & (frozen) cauliflower stew/soup which I had on my todo list for months! I had to improvise a recipe using about 1/4 of the ingredients that the online recipes had. And it was really difficult for my twitchy, disorganized ass.
But it ended up PRETTY GOOD. Even if I over-salted it a bit in the last goddamn minute, it was still tasty.
Now the leftover cauliflower is gone from the freezer and I didn't buy that red lentil for nothing. GO ME.
My bad habit: constantly changing the ratings on Read books in Goodreads.
Pretty much every time I add a new book I end up second-guessing my previous ratings. If THIS book is three stars, then this one surely must be less/more! I seem to be forever trapped between "it was OK" -- "I liked it" -- "I really liked it"
That said, the phrases they have as explanations for the ratings help me a lot.
hoooooly shit, that's a whiplash! I found some seriously amazing facial studies on Pinterest - amazing enough that I wanted to see more work from the artist. When I googled him... it turned out he's a self-styled "pin-up artist" with a portfolio full of the most stereotypical, boring "sex sells" material - contorted poses, vacant stares, vacuum-sealed shiny orbs, the whole bit.
Either there's two people with the same name online (doubtful) or... RIP, dude. 😬
she/her, European, tech person, artsy, uncool.
I use Masto because I have too short attention span for regular blogging.
