In history class in high school a friend of mine, who's a guy, loudly asked me to help him study the "Pubic War." Of course it was a slip (a Freudian slip?) and he meant the Punic Wars (Rome vs. Carthage). And then of course you all know where the classmates took it from there, speculating just what we would do while studying that...

I know, I have thought of that too. November is such a bad month for me, but I promised myself I would do something like Nanowrimo some other month, and am considering this as an over-the-holidays-project...hey, don't encourage me!!!

I need help. Despite having seen very little anime in my life, I have found myself suddenly addicted to fanfic of 2 particular animes, which shall remain nameless. Specifically, the yaoi is keeping me up at night and preventing me writing the papers that are due next week. But even worse is that now I want to write some myself. And worse than that, I don't think Tigersong would approve of me using certain..RL incidents..as subjects of yaoi fic. ph34r.gif But the urge to do it is overwhelming! Please, I need some advice! Help me say no!
(btw I have been told I'm not a bad writer....)

Yours in tru boi luv-ness,

Rabid Fangirl

The EASY BEER BREAD RECIPE "Quick Beer Bread"

Also from The All New Joy of Cooking

This is super quick, no yeast. Also less complicated. If you like the idea of beer bread but can't bake worth a darn, this is the recipe for you.

Preheat oven to 400 F. Grease an 8 x 4 inch loaf pan.
Mix in a bowl:

1 cup whole-wheat flour (but I bet regular flour would also be ok)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 tbs sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

then add:

1 1/2 cups light or dark beer (but NOT stout), cold or room temperature but not flat
(don't use skunky beer!! nooo!)

** optional: add 1/2 cup finely diced sharp cheddar or aged Monterey Jack cheese and 1/4 cup sliced scallions (like green onions, aren't they?) and 2 tsp caraway seeds if you want.

Mix, then put batter in the pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center and all the way to the bottom comes out clean, about 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes before unmolding from the pan.

If you guys make any of these, tell me how they turn out!

RECIPE for YEAST BEER BREAD. *this is the more time-consuming of the 2 beer bread recipes.

*From The All New Joy of Cooking, by Irma S. Rombauer, Marion Rombauer Becker, and Ethan Becker. New York: Scribner, 1997. pg. 749

"Bread and beer are cousins: both are based on yeast-fermented grain. Beer can also be substituted for the water or milk in many other bread recipes for the flavor its hops and malted barley add. Strong ales or dark stouts are excellent choices."

Combine in large bowl:

3 1/2 cups bread flour
1/4 cup cooked brown or white rice
2 tbs packed brown sugar
1 tbs plus 3/4 tsp active dry yeast
1 tbs wheat bran
1 1/2 tsp salt

mix these then add:
1 cup strong beer, ale or stout, at room temperature
1/4 cup milk or buttermilk, at room temperature

Mix, knead for 10 minutes until dough is smooth and elastic. Put dough in oiled bowl and turn it over to coat with oil. Cover loosely with plastic wrap, let rise at room temperature for 1 1/2 hours. Put in loaf pan, cover with wrap again and again let rise for 1 1/2 hours. Pre-heat oven to 350 F, bake until crust is light golden brown, about 45 minutes. Remove from pan to cool.

Rose: Today I cooked a 10-lb shoulder of ham and made Cumberland sauce for it and took it to the potluck. It was the hit of the potluck and impressed all my classmates, who think that I am really skilled at cooking because I can pour water over meat and put it in an oven for 3 hours. go me!

Thorn: I stupidly bought the wrong poster for my friend for Christmas and can't return it. You'd think I could tell the different between Cary Grant and Humphrey Bogart, couldn't you? Especially when Casablanca was in black and white and this poster was color?! Man was I tired.

SAXOPHONE all the way! The sexiest instrument ever. Alto sax. Grades 6-12. Jazz band, Grade 10-12. They say brass players know how to use their lips, but they ain't got nothin' on saxophone players and their tongues. cool.gif

Before that, it was piano and recorder, in school. Also, the tambourine. I hated the tambourine. I always wanted to play the triangle, and was always denied. Mean, mean Mrs. Brown the music teacher. Then in high school Marty "Fish" Finney, a classmate, in his band, "Kalvin's Stone Angels," played the tambourine and made it look like the coolest instrument ever. But that's Marty for you- that kid could make playing anything look so cool women would be orgasming in the audience, like with the Beatles.

Where should you go? Florence, of course! I mean, is there anywhere else to go? (don't mind me I'm just an art historian.) I hear Germany's nice too. New Zealand also ranks high on my list.

In other news, regarding me and studying abroad, I'm looking for a place to do my Ph.D. at. (in 2 years). For a while schools in the States were looking good, but as you all know Tigersong and I are Canadians, and with the recent Bush re-election he says he doesn't find the idea attractive....so he's got me seriously thinking about going to London, the Courtauld Institute of Art. What do you guys think? Tigersong and Artemisia for 4 years in England? I guess it depends on whether he can work as a dentist there.

I've never been to a karaoke event. I'd like to go- if my friends were onstage with me, or even just one other person, and I had had at least one bevvie, I bet it would be fun. I keep asking Tigersong to go with me but he's one of those "dear God Noooooo!" people. It's because he's a professionally trained singer. Opera divas, you know what they're like. wub.gif He says he frankly can't think of anything less appealing than having his eardrums assaulted in that way.

Re: Japan - my only experience with karaoke is watching the girls on Sailor Moon Live Action doing it. Their secret magical girl clubhouse/hideout is in a magic room in a karaoke club, where they have a private room with their own machine and mircrophones and candy.

Just for the record...I have two recipes for beer bread, in case anyone cares. One is with yeast, one is quick bread with just flour. One recipe involves cheese and green onions and beer! Yum! Recipe says it makes great toast... The cookbook, The New Joy of Cooking (not the New Joy of Sex, that's a totally different kind of bun in the oven) says that you can substitute beer for the water or milk in many recipes, even those including yeast. It recommends strong ales or dark stouts.

I know, I know, it just doesn't cut it when you think of the genius of evil bread... .but this stuff is supposed to taste good! :innocent:PM me if you want the recipe, or if demands are made on here I will post the recipe.

Now I'm curious. Is the engagement of Irish and Manji over? Will she e-kill him? Will they make up? How great will the breakup snogging, and/or make-up snogging be? Or will the world have seen its last tackle-hug?! Tune in next time, same Vic time, same Vic channel.

Hmmm.. I think I would feel it necessary to avenge Vic, even though we have no formal e-relationship on the boards. Besides...I would miss him on MSN.

You know, maybe we should give him the benefit of the doubt...SOMEONE could have kidnapped him...prevented him from coming here! Where are the REST of his snuggling partners, eh? I bet it's SNUGGLEBUM's FAULT! She's preventing him from attending due to JEALOUSY! or it could be one of US here now, looking and waiting so innocently... *looks with narrowed eyes at guests*

Thinking about this slaughtering Vic thing...how many women and or men on here would claim revenge if you did e-kill him? I mean, I'm sure they would all sympathize with you, but we all know just how much e-snogging Vic does....wouldn't lots of members grieve for their e-lover?

Lana tries to comfort Manji *pats* There there, now, what kind of a world would there be without Vic's classic tackle-hugs? A world without cuddling, without Lana getting tucked in via MSN late at night...an e-world without Vic is a lonely world for Manji...right?

erotic cookies? There's something I can comment on! I don't know about Asian weddings but as an art historian I am very well informed on Chinese and Japanese erotic art trends over the past thousand years!

I think you should challenge Vic to a duel or give him a suitor's quest or something, to defend your honour and make him prove he still deserves to marry you after standing you up!

don't panic, you'll smear the makeup! He'll be here! he's a man of his word. Blieve in your man! Also important, do I look fat in this? (models kimono) not sure having all that fabric suspended above my bum is helping to slim my figure from the back....but the silk just feels sooo good.

Sometimes registered dieticians or specific athletics doctors/therapists know more about body types and body shaping through exercise and diet that just coaches and family doctors. Most universities have professional athletic doctors on staff who are trained specifically in such issues. If you're still in high school and not on a university team, perhaps your coach could pull some strings and help you get an appointment with a specialist or someone on the university/college athletic health team somehow.

If you decide to see a dietician, you should know that there's a difference between "nutritionists" and "dieticians." Dieticians have gone to university and have a degree, while anyone with no training at all can call themselves an nutritionist, or at least I think that's how it works in Canada. Don't know about the US.

I give really good massages, come with my own satsuma-scented massage oil (non edible, however sad.gif ) and make great cheesecake!

In the Manitoba, Canada education system you get sex ed in grades 5, 7 and 9 and they get more detailed every time. But my first sex talk happened long before grade 5 and was given by my older cousin with barbies. Come on, admit it. Probably everyone who has ever played with barbies or similar adult-aged dolls has done what my cousin did: she put Ken on top of Barbie and let them revel in their plastic un-nudity (my dolls had beige plastic panties or briefs fused to their skin). I had no idea why she would do that. She then told me they were having sex, making babies, and that the man had little tiny eggs inside of him and was transferring them to the woman and that felt good and that's how she got pregnant. Voila! Then grade 5 and the "sex is like a seat-belt being fastened" made a lot more sense.

As for a moral talk? My parents are both med lab techs, and my mom is terrified of STDs in perhaps the way only neurotic medical professionals can be. I got the "don't get STDs they will wreck your life and if you get pregnant we're taking away your education trust fund" talk.

Is this in response to something I posted on my LJ last week? Probably not but it could be! Wow, am I addicted to Arthur. I get 2 channels, one of which is mostly cartoons, and my day just doesn't start until I watch Arthur at noon. My LJ post was something like, what the hell IS that thing?! And I totally agree with you... he really doesn't look like an aardvark...but he's still cool. Admittedly, the Arthur universe is weird. All the kids' parents are both the same type of animals the kids are...but today, the episode was about whether Arthur (aardvark) and Francine (monkey) were dating. No one mentioned the cross-species implications! All they said was, eww, she'll want to kiss you and you will die of the cooties.

Now that we've established what Arthur is, what the hell is BINKY? Some kind of dog?

Wow, 5 pills + 1 syrup = 6 medications at once. Sounds wild. Hope the drug interactions won't kill you. Or turn you into a pod person. You're not getting the urge to wear a knotted scarf now are you? That's weird about the sick days too...I'm one of those people that will go to work even if I am vomiting blood or something, and that people need to literally throw out of the office because they don't want to catch what I have...but really it's because they don't want blood on their fancy logo post-it notes. But the one time, the ONE time I actually decided all by myself to go home because even I thought I was too sick to stay at work? It indirectly caused such a big problem that the next day my co-worker got into a shouting fight with the director and left work early, reducing me to a neurotic sobbing ball of nerves. I hate sick days!!! But enough spam. I hope your sick day helped and you're feeling better!
