Eating the leftovers from the earlier Indian takeaway as soakage was unwise.

Also a potential kitchen hack: chickpeas recipe called for maple syrup. I didn’t have any, so I used golden syrup with a tiny splash of soy sauce. The soy added the depth necessary.

I can only rarely be bothered to make salads, but tonight I made two to go with my vegetable pie: melon, pomegranate and green leaves; and curried chickpeas with chopped tomatoes, raisins and pumpkin seeds. Worked very very well.

Not sure what kind of funk I have been in but I realised today I’m starting to enjoy cooking again.

I am legit now feeling bad that I can’t help someone make their special day perfect.

Being asked by a vigilant to herald their elevation court is always amazing and humbling, not being able to do so due to not attending the event is very sad-making. 😔

Have survived week of work madness. As some sort of an antidote, I guess, my psyche is demanding I make garb all weekend.

Ask me about cooking solidly for a week after my viva.

I feel that an important part of personal loyalty is the need to be able to enquire ARE YOU FUCKING MENTAL when the need presents itself.

Ah, that’s how you logged in to this thing again.

Waiting to fly home. Can recommend LAS for US southwestern events, although the city itself really isn’t all that.

So, for us Wetstrella this year was about three days long. Got a bit of fighting in, bought new armour, saw people, made new contacts. Did ok in personal benchmarking tourney. A bit weird in general but could have been much worse.

I’m quite worried that on returning tomorrow I will find my armour bag sailing down to meet me.

The ID contingent has fled the site due to camp under water error.

In Phoenix, AZ, with Knight for next week. Jetlag is a right bitch.

That rainbow maille by - OMFG. If I had the money, I’d get two.

Would be badass at Dun In Mara’s Pride March, too.

My day job got eliminated. The vet bills from recent livestock losses have put our family farm behind on the mortgage. We're facing foreclosure and eviction. I'm offering this #handmade #maille #rainbow #pride shirt for $600 including USA shipping, originally priced at $900 plus shipping. If the shirt is out of your reach, please boost. I have links below.

It might, of course, be an idea to install Amaroq on some other devices too.
