the_deep_magic: A nightmare inexplicably torn from the pages of Kafka! (Imaginary men)

Many thanks to [ profile] therumjournals for my Blue Spider gift.  Its name is Chris because, in her words, "I WOULD HAVE NAMED IT ZACH, BUT IT IS NOT WEARING ENOUGH STRIPES."

ALSO.  Our flists mostly overlap, but that still does not excuse my forgetting to rec [ profile] ewinfic's Heroes Big Boom And Now These Three Remain.  If you're familiar at all with Heroes, click on that link right the hell now and go read it.  It is a work of art and a work of love, for serious.  And the art is gorgeous.

ALSO.  Tonight I made s'mores using a White Chocolate Peppermint candle as a marshmallow ignition source.

That is all.

ETA: Except for [ profile] shutterbitch just wrote me this awesome icing vs. frosting comment!fic.  THE SUGAR RUSH CONTINUES.

De Lantejoulas e Amor (a.k.a. the Pinto Carnivale fic) has been updated and finished!  Parts 5.3-6.2 are brand new, but you'll want to go back and reread the whole thing to remind yourself how AWESOME and SCORCHINGLY HOT it is.

Totally Anonymous Anon deserves ALL THE MUFFINS.

Made guacamole for the end-of-the-(school)year office party today, and it was a hit!  Thanks to [ profile] ewinfic and [ profile] emmessann -- I kinda smooshed your recipes together.  Made the mistake of trying to eat the rest of it for dinner, though, and it will be a long time before I'm able to look at an avocado again.

These Volkswagen commercials are really starting to piss me off.  The Punchbuggy game is, as its name indicates, limited to punching when you see a VW Beetle and nothing else.  (I had some guy friends who tried to institute [PT] Cruiser Nut Crunch, a game of testicle-grabbing fun, but that's neither here nor there.)  No one in the real world has ever seen a Jetta and punched their friend, expecting the hit to be acceptable (and thereby unreturnable) under the rules of Punchbuggy.  And -- here's the thing -- the writers of the commercial know this.  They know that it makes about as much sense as screaming "YAHTZEE!" every time you step on a crack in the sidewalk and yet they built an entire advertising campaign around it.  I also hate how worked up it makes me.  I swear, my blood pressure rises every time I see one of those commercials and I get annoyed with how annoyed I am.

Free Pinto plotbunny to a good home: Zach is making fun of romantic comedies, perhaps especially those featuring Chris.  He's all "I could write a better script in my sleep" and Chris double-dog-dares him to actually do it.  So he does, handing Chris each scene as he finishes it.  And it is good, except somehow the lead characters sound suspiciously like him and Zach...  Maybe Zach uses some of their actual banter as dialogue.  Anyhow, it all leads to sex (as these things tend to do). :oD  I'd write it, but I'm working on, oh, a gazillion other things, some of which are quite long and I would like to finish them at some point.  So, yeah, I would read the shit out of that if someone was inspired to write it.

Hmm... that's a verbal tic I seem to have picked up from a friend of mine: "I'd [verb] the shit out of that [noun]!"  Doesn't always work, though -- once she looked at my lunch and said "Man, I would eat the shit out of that burrito," and we both kind of went ugggggh.

I remembered what I wanted to say!  Well, it's a question, actually: does anybody have any good guacamole or hummus recipes?  Preferably not involving complicated kitchen equipment?  Yes, I could Google it, but I honestly wouldn't know just from looking at the recipe whether the end result would be delicious guacamole or, say, green napalm.  I am partial to roasted red pepper in my hummus, if that helps.

New favorite thing ever: a Panera strawberries and cream scone with Nutella all over it.  Because otherwise, it's just too breakfast-y for dessert. ;o)

Speaking of brand name chocolate hazelnut spreads, the back of my Nutella jar says "An example of a tasty yet balanced breakfast: a glass of skim milk, orange juice, and Nutella on whole wheat bread."  Really, Nutella?  Really?  I will always love you, but I am beginning to think you are stretching the truth.
