Returned from Australia, and am still buzzing with the feel of of wallaby fur under my fingers, the images of the high cliffs looming over the beaches of Sydney, and the scent of eucalyptus in my nose and my eyes, giving the Blue Mountains their name.

Good to be back with you, too, though. <3

Still not employed, but at least now I can read parts of a Mandarin menu? Pointers regarding that LIFE SKILL! to Jenn, who elaborates on Memrise as a learning program over in her blog.

Also, BERING AND WELLS! ♥ I like Warehouse 13 as a show in its own right, character-driven and hijinks-ensued, but I love the dynamic of Myka and H.G. Wells to a degree I haven't felt in a while -- Bo and Tamsin come close, but Tamsin is a recent Lost Girl addition, so I guess in many ways they are more like Buffy and Faith on BtVS: woven deeply into the story, determining it.

So have some fanart featuring Myka Bering and Helena G. Wells?

Click to go to the images, and then through to the original (large) size.

This post is sponsored by a stern talking to from Chris, my Danish friend, who yesterday night over dinner at her place told me to Just. Let. Go. of issues that are minor in the grand scheme of things. Still hard; you know me, but perspective: It helps.

Favorite lady friendship / All The Ladies meme

Referring to the ALL THE LADIES meme:

9. Favorite Lady Friendship

If we’re talking friendship only, and friendship as the expressed core of their selves, let’s go with Bo and Kenzi on Lost Girl: They make me so very happy by being just themselves, together: as buddies and besties who are snarky yet sweet. It’s not always smooth sailing because they have arguments and issues, but they genuinely love and are defined by each other.

Read on re: Bo & Kenzi on Lost Girl -- see also: television representation, women on tv, female dynamics in genre in particular.
 
(All the links lead to tumblr, because that's where the majority of people now respond to my posts; feel free to do so on DW or LJ, of course; I'd welcome that. I really dislike tumblr as a platform and would prefer blogs, but the only reason I'm in fandom is the interaction, so...)

Prompted by the ever-inspiring Victoria P., I tried my hand at making focaccia for the first time -- and a gluten-free one at that!

It could have ended badly, especially given the fact I'd cone home at 5am and had had four shots of tequila and three Corpse Reviver #2 during Zee's birthday celebrations, but I woke up in a pretty good state and managed to be productive: Labor Day, indeed.

gf focaccia

The original recipe is here; I'll just note my adjustments for those playing the home game:

Gluten-free One-Hour Skillet FocacciaCollapse )

Bottom line, it's good -- not just "gluten-free good" but more-ish. A far cry from the best I've had, because it's a little dense and of course can't match those particular wheat-bread undertones, but I've had much, much worse focaccia as well, especially of the gf variant. This one has a crisp bite on its underside but is soft inside, and most importantly it gets the particular focaccia taste profile right.

[personal profile] pentapus loves Lydia Martin of Teen Wolf:
Please give me recs! Tell me where the hangouts and challenges are! Though I've heard this is a one pairing fandom - Y/N? Maybe I can bribe people for Lydia fic? Ooh, how about team fic?! There's got to be that, right?
She's already created fanart featuring Lydia; check it out in the post linked to.

...but I shall still link you to my words on other platforms just in case you're interested (in me) or bored (with whatever is or is not going on):

On Twitter, the last tweets deal with my non-grumpycat!musings, Apple, and personality traits as reflected by the medium.

On tumblr, I repeat my World's Tiniest Violin! warning re: Hermann Gottlieb as a beloved German character.

Carry on, carry on.
