I am out of practice making biscuits from scratch. I used to make biscuits every week-end, but that was a long time ago so now I am using Pillsbury grands.

usually I just make my gravy with sausage, sausage fat, milk, flour, pepper, sour cream, and a little bit of salt. but I will try some sage. there is a pork, apple, sage pie that I love from Hoosier Mama that has completely changed my view of sage.

Do you put anything in it?  I ask because a) I add sage to my sausage gravy because it pulls out a naturally occurring flavor of the sausage, and black pepper for the same reason, and b) I discovered last month that you can add veggies and stuff to it and suddenly it’s not a breakfast food, it’s a stew, and you can eat it for dinner and get, like, vitamins or something

unpopular opinion: it is completely valid to read your own fanfictions/stories. the main reason you probably wrote it in the first place is because you couldn’t find anything like it. it’s not weird. 

This shouldn’t be an unpopular opinion is my… opinion.

I reread my own stuff constantly. It’s part of how you get better as a writer.

most of the time I write things because nobody else is going to write it for me so the only way I can read it is for me to write it first

This is more punk than the whole of punk history.

I’ll tell you what’s ferocious. Freddie’s comeback to Sid calling him “Freddie Platinum” when they were recording down the hall from each other at London’s Wessex Studios (Queen for News of the World, Pistols for Bollocks).

Sid Vicious made the mistake one day of bursting into Queen’s control room and antagonizing their frontman. “Have you succeeded in bringing ballet to the masses, then?” he sneered. “Oh, yes, Simon Ferocious,” Mercury replied. “We’re trying our best, dear.” 

Then, according to Queen biographer Daniel Nester, Freddie rose from his chair and began to playfully flick the safety pins displayed on the front of Sid’s leather jacket. “Tell me,” he asked, “did you arrange these pins just so?” When Sid stepped forward in an attempt to intimidate Freddie, the singer simply pushed him backwards and inquired, “What are you going to do about it?” Sid immediately backed down.

Freddie Mercury may very well have had the biggest dick energy of anyone who ever lived

12 Times Han Solo Used The Force Without Knowing It

I need Han to accidentally be force strong, mostly because HE WOULD HATE THAT SO MUCH “Wow so you’re basically a self-taught Jedi” “WHAT–ARE YOU–I’M THE BEST PILOT IN–” “That’s force shit” “I’M AN EXCELLENT SHOT” “Yeah, because of the force” “I’M INCREDIBLY PERSUASIVE” “That’s the force making people believe your terrible lies against all reason ” “I’LL SEE YOU IN HELL

I can picture his reaction now…

No, but this is:

Oh heck

George Lucas can pry Force Sensitive Han from my cold dead hands.

I love everything about this theory, but my favourite part of it by far is now utterly offended he’d be by the suggestion.

Obi-wan: The Force is strong in you, too, Han. I could teach you-

Han: How Dare You.

Are there any works in the post-apocalyptic genre with post-apocalyptic librarians? People who worked in the public library and after the Bad Thing decide to stay and keep the library clean, safe and available for anyone who needs it. People can’t remove books from the premises anymore, because they’re too precious, but you can stay as long as you want and read them or copy them out–the librarians encourage making copies, so that the information can circulate beyond the physical boundaries of the library. 

After a while it becomes an unspoken reality of the post apocalyptic society that you Just Don’t fuck with the library. You don’t fight there, you don’t steal from it, you don’t allow harm to come to librarians when they have to leave the building for supplies. 

People donate food and books and paper with no expectation of reciprocity, because the librarians don’t ask for anything when you need a place to hide or information or, fuck, to read a schlocky crime novel because you need to escape reality in some purple prose. 

i need this like water and also air

@a-fragile-sort-of-anarchy

OH HELL TO THE YES

Also consider: a library has a duplicate book, and wants to hire mercenaries to transport it to a library that doesn’t have a copy of that book. The most well known mercs in the world show up to volunteer for the job because they haven’t read that one yet.

@edderkopper

@livrever

so I showed my housemates that, and this happened:

Blu Housemate: Mercenary crews doing ILL gratis on a regularly scheduled trip so they can read the books on the way

Tol Housemate: And/or flying the standard of the library as they travel as a warning or a safe passage demand from other entities.

Blu Housemate: Bandits coming upon the party, noticing the library standard, and joining up to get in on the reading.

Tol Housemate:

“Greetings,” the herald booms. “We invoke the Bibilothèquaire Truce and demand safe passage through this space.”

After a short while, the response comes back. “Agreed! Got any new fiction?”

y’all know about the AO3 search hack for only getting fics with a single pairing listed, right? Just click on the pairing tag you want, and then filter and put “otp:true” in the ‘search within results’ box and BAM. Nothing but fics with that one pairing. Heaven.

If you tried hard enough you could probably find a justification to pronounce the name “James” as “Hammies”

The name “Hamish” actually developed in exactly this way.

(“James” has probably the broadest-reaching variants of any name I can think of. Its forms include “Hamish”, “Jacques”, “Jacob”, and “Diego”.)

Omg. Okay, could you then possibly explain how we got “James” from “Jacob”? I’ve done historical linguistics in college and I still don’t understand. It drives me nuts.

Certainly! The base form is the Hebrew “Ya'aqov”, which was interpreted in Latin as both “Iacobus” and “Iacomus”. The former branched off to become “Jacob”, while the latter became “James”. In medieval Europe, they were generally seen as Jewish and Christian versions of the same name.

Notably, many languages don’t distinguish between the two forms at all. (Even in English, there’s a history of using them interchangeably – hence the “Jacobean” reign of James II [and his supporters, the “Jacobites”].) In Medieval Spanish, for instance, the “Iaco-” prefix became “Iago”, giving us “Santiago”: literally “Saint James”. Further variations include “Diego” and “Thiago”. The French “Jacques” and Italian “Giacomo” are part of this etymological branch as well.

Tl;dr: your sons Jamie, Jake, and Diego are actually variants of one primordial son (just like your daughters Maggie, Rita, and Pearl).

Okay, but you didn’t explain the cool thing about Gaelic inflection that produces Hamish (Gaelic spelling Sheumais) as the vocative case version of Seumas. It’s not just a sound change over time, or between languages, it’s a sound change that marks grammar within a language.

(Apologies @funereal-disease if you already knew that; I thought that your interlocutor might be interested)

Oh, I actually didn’t know that! That’s incredibly cool.

Othello, but Iago is named James.

Aladdin, but Iago is named James.

Iago T. Kirk

Iago Buchanan Barnes

Eoghann. Seriously. Every other varient of Sean/Ian/Owen go home.

Just Eat have reported a 60% drop in Chinese orders, apparently. Like, this racist hysteria is not just “LOL, dumbass racists” - it’s causing appreciable harm to people’s livelihoods at the very least.

Anyway if you fancy an easy and also delicious way of telling racists to fuck off over this, the Big Chinese Takeaway Weekend is coming up. Literally just… have a Chinese this coming weekend. Enjoy. You deserve it. So do they.

There’s some snow on the sand and the water’s a little chilly, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t stop by and explore Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in Michigan. Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, the park is home to lush forests, clear inland lakes, unique flora and fauna and the namesake sandy bluffs that tower 450 feet over the stunning blue waters of Lake Michigan. We love these gorgeous winter views almost as much as the free ranger-led snowshoe hikes. Have fun. Photo by National Park Service. 

the dunes have stopped eating toddlers?
