I hope 101 passes in my state today. Dropped off my ballot just before dusk. 🤞

On a more prosaic note: tonight's dinner is chipotle-red kidney-yam "chili." Tomorrow's will be likely "fresh" (frozen) pea soup with watercress. Yeah, watercress is way overpriced, and if I didn't have a dinky-ass house and a plant-nomming feline I'd figure out how to grow it myself. [shrug]

I went a little wild yesterday. Despite the cold weather, I got my heart set on trying this Sichuan cold chicken recipe this week:
So between getting the sweetened soy sauce AND the hot oil made, per Zhu's advice, I ended up making a long-ass bus trip and ended up with an extra sink-and-a-half's worth of dishes. Anyway, that'll be Thursday's dinner. (I've now purchased my first-ever bags of Sichuan peppercorns and star anise. Go, Me!)

BTW, my ultimate goal is to get this second ipernity account to "Club" status... so I can post unlimited ju-- er, I mean-- treasures all day long. That's a little more money than I've got right now. So if you like what you see and have an extra dollar, send it here: paypal.me/amylsacks . Thanks

"You feel that detractors of off-road voters are trying to paralyze you with guilt. You must really have something to feel guilty about."
Heard this late last year, and I've been meaning to follow up on it.
What off-road voters have to feel guilty about is what anyone feels guilty about when they flee a destructive and painful relationship held up as good by others who don't want to know the truth about the dynamics.
(This applies in personal and institutional settings alike.)
Trying to get back into the habit of posting Photoshop-ed ephemera. The last time I was serious about it, I still had a full-sized screen. Now I don't, so it's scroll scroll scroll and get irritated all the time. [grumble]
iTunes is still cutting-edge tech to me and last summer I went on a massive music-loading bender. Can you tell?
At the risk of stating the obvious: yeah, this is a movie you should watch, if you haven't already.
I told the boring overgrown edgelord on that fandom board how tedious their "anti-PC" act is. Their response: "Thanks for your denial. It proves my point."
Every fandom edgelord needs to spend time in a dunking booth full of piranha, clad in nothing but swim trunks made of fresh poison oak.
Tons of activity at the front-yard bird feeder this morning. But the cat was busy with his breakfast, so only I noticed.
Just got back from looking at cat hotels. The cat can for sure afford more luxurious accommodations than we ever could.
