New Uses for Feathers and a Hot Glue Gun

| No Comments

I loathe Microsoft Word like an evil and stupid coworker the boss won't fire because they 1) are related or 2) used to sleep together or 3) belong to the same BDSM-scrapbooking-birdwatching club or 4) all of the above or 5) something equally gross I don't even want to know about.

This, of course, is why I still use WordPerfect for my own work. But you still have to deal with what everyone else uses and sends you attachments as.

Pumpkin Curry Soup

| 1 Comment

It's been three years since I've posted a recipe here, which is a billion years in blog time.

You can find plenty of variations of this recipe online, but mine's better: more pumpkin-y, with a trick to make it less messy.

I'm enjoying a mug right now--it really is pretty perfect for an autumn afternoon. And I'm not even that crazy about soup--in general, I like to chew rather than drink my food. But this is quite substantial.

Filthy Habits

| No Comments

Talking about how other people will be happier, better people if they accept your religion is like smoking: a filthy habit that offends and disgusts most people, an addiction we'd all be healthier if we kicked. If you simply cannot give this filthy habit up once you've acquired it, it's best avoided unless you are in a group of people who also share the same filthy habit. If you want to be considered polite, agreeable company, don't do it in public or in mixed company.
