I think my bookshelves mostly convey the message "you need more shelves" and "apparently will read anything that stays still long enough."

Context
is "is this a case for - the ponceyness police?"

[personal profile] owlbrigade1 cites this case in point:

Gotham police are at a loss to explain a sudden rise in animal themed costumed weirdos? Surely the explanation is the same as it is for the long standing animal themed weirdos? It is Gotham, it is what they do. People in animal costumes wreaking havoc is practically a city tradition.

Context, to no one's surprise, involves Harley Quinn.

Lemon Rosemary Grilled Cheese

[personal profile] foxfirefey posting in [community profile] omnomnom
This is inspired by a place by my work that does something similar, but with pear compote.

Ingredients:

* Sharp white cheddar (mine came from CostCo, the Coastal stuff)
* Rosemary bread (mine came from Trader Joe's)
* Lemon curd (another thing from Trader Joe's)
* Butter (I did unsalted, the cheddar is plenty salty enough)

Tools:

* Toaster Oven
* Frying pan and oven

Steps:

* Lightly toast one side of the rosemary bread in the oven
* One one slice of rosemary bread, put a pile of chopped up white cheddar chunks on the toasted side. Put it back into the toaster oven until the cheese gets pretty melty.
* While that's going on, spread lemon curd on the other piece of bread, on the toasted side.
* Put a pat of butter in your frying pan and melt it
* Take your melted cheesy bread out of the toaster oven, put both pieces together so the cheese of one side is against the lemon curd of the other
* Put your sandwich into the pan, swish it around, flip it to the other side--this will make sure that both sides have butter as you pan toast.
* Toast both sides of your sandwich in the pan with the butter, flipping as necessary. When it's toasted to your liking, put it on a plate.
* Tada! Fancy grilled cheese.

Hannover wurst appears to be what happens is when you have the question of whether to have sausage or bacon with your breakfast, and you make the obvious-in-retrospect choice of "Both! At the same time!" and make sausage in part out of bacon.

Context, needless to say, is delicious.

These questions were written by [livejournal.com profile] brittyandacity.

1) Do you want to get married?

2) Where would you like to get married?

3) If you were getting married in a week, who would be in your wedding party?

4) What would your wedding colours be?

5) Does marriage mean to you 'til death do us part?'

Missy Remix: Interest Poll

Tuesday, July 11th, 2017 07:52 pm
trobadora: (Missy (stylised))
[personal profile] trobadora posting in [community profile] doctorwho
After the recent series finale, [personal profile] navaan and I shared our squee for Missy, and while bouncing fic ideas around we had an idea for a different kind of Remix challenge.

It went something like this:
  1. The world needs more Missy!
  2. Someone should do a fest or a challenge or something.
  3. A fest where Missy gets to be in everything! Everything’s better with more Missy.
  4. A Missy remix! Remix this fic by adding Missy to it!
  5. Someone should really do that.
  6. "Someone" is going to be us, isn't it?

In general terms this is how it would work:

Like in a normal remix challenge, people would sign up with the body of Doctor Who work they've written and be assigned a remixer, who gets to pick one of their stories to remix. The difference - all remixes would have the aim to add Missy somehow:
  • Missy's POV on what happened
  • Missy doing things behind the scene while the plot unfolds
  • Missy directly bursting in on the story and interacting with everyone else
  • ...

(More general info about remixes.)

This is a very specific idea for a fest and before we set to work, we wanted to find out if anyone who isn't us would be interested in taking part in a challenge like this. So let us know:

When you have a non-releasable raccoon baby that you're trying to socialize and get her used to humans and handling, and she *loves* to stick her nose up your sleeve and try to chew on your armpit hair.

Context is really good advice for people with pet raccoons.

When was the last time you saw a bloke about to aim his spaceship towards noble sacrifice stop to cry about never having had children?

... arguably Picard, but, it is not generally a genre feature

unless women.


Context would like a warning label for fics with "women, written by men, who think they need a reason."

I made it!

Almost.

Sadly, my left foot was lost in a floor lava touching incident, but with immediate amputation we were able to save the rest of the leg. Don't know how I'm going to explain THAT at work tomorrow. "Sorry, I can't drive my car, I lost my foot in an imaginary incident involving non-existent lava." I don't think there's a Health and Safety Policy for that.


Context does understand about convection, thank you.
