This was a "veloute de lomo". Ah... those gastrobars!

Two transit airports. Twenty-three odd hours. We got there in the end.

Brownies made up of beef and chocolate. Why not?

I have the feeling a cook at the cafeteria is on the same level of cooking as me, "right, I don't feel like going to go get more ingredients to make something... what do we have? Potatoes? Green beans? Onions? Olives? Pickled carrots? Pickles? Yeah, that's totally a salad if you also add a bit of olive oil." Today for lunch there was another variation - potatoes, tuna, onions and green onions. Wasn't that bad, especially considering there was no attempt made at adding mayo.

If only I could now teach it to clean its own brushes and take out its battery when not in use for a long time... Maybe the 900 models will be able to do that.

The older I get, the more convinced I become that migraines are my body's way of saying, "hey, look, I've given almost zero troubles with periods... so let me have this one thing!"

As usual, my reading goes by phases. A couple of weeks ago I finished off about 4 books in a matter of days.

All hail the mighty Glow Cloud... but what is our stance on morning fog?

So... Invisibialia. I actually found it decent enough as a podcast, except for the part where they aired at least two of the season's episodes as advertisement on other podcasts so in the end it was a very short season.

That said, let's go back quickly to that episode about categories (I think most of it aired for the first time on "This American Life"). It really made me think about how we need more realistic representations of people who do not fit in the categories that are often thought of as "normal". I'm not only talking about more bi, gay and lesbian people but also asexual people. It's one of my pet peeves... media that has a perfectly good asexual character and then someone decides they need to sex it up a little, like whenever they try to the Doctor a story arc where he's supposed to show some kind of love/sexual interest in someone else. Nope. One can lead a very happy life, surrounded by people they love, without ever feeling like they're "missing their other half" and that message should be spread out more.

I bet it's written in the Korean constitution that at least three different shows starring Yoo Jae-suk must on the telly at the same time.

Ah. We're back to the lovely days of "is it allergies making me cry or has the world outside become so overwhelming?"

Now that's some pizzetta! Even our real Italians order it sometimes at lunch. То не вош пчихнула... as we say (are there about 15 mistakes in that, mum? Google is so not helpful.)

I just discovered BBC4's Infinite Monkey Cage the other day and I want to be friends with almost everyone who has ever been a participant. I just listened to the Christmas special and they had Chris Hadfield and Brian Blessed and there was a hilarious theologist, Francesca Stavrakopoulou (had to google her name, that's quite a few number of letters there!), who kept on referring to Jesus as the "magic baby", and there was also Richard Coles who is a reverend and whom I didn't even mind! Everyone was obviously fangirling/boying Chris Hadfield... and there was a lovely discussion about the history of the bible and why the different parts were written when they were written. And just it was a great episode and yeah... I just want to keep it in a box and take it out to listen to it whenever I have a day when only puppies and kittens can make things better.

So yeah. I suppose the show airs on BBC4 at some point for those who listen to the radio and it's also available as a podcast, apparently as an extended version of what's aired on the radio.

I am that friend who always brings homemade taboulé (or a sweet couscous dish) to a party. Oh the skillz.

Note to self: the washing machine does not like half-loads (or I possibly closed the door incorrectly).

S/he doesn't know it yet, but we're totally laundry buddies with my neighbour.

Wait. That came out super creepy.
