I went back to my old icon journal and realized someone had commented on my Garsiv icon set from the Prince of Persia Sands of Time movie. Now I'm watching that movie again and making new icons lol. I'll upload what I have done today and then work on more later.

I forgot how damn much I love that movie and the characters and actors in it. a;sljghasf And I love family shit and fantasy stories.

Last night I made some low carb hamburger bun bread with Wio flour. It's pretty much regular flour with an enzyme blocker in it, but it's more absorbent than regular flour in my experience, so the first time I made it I had trouble with dry dough. This time, I added WAAAAY too much, and it got stuck on EVERYTHING, omg. It was pretty messy and annoying to deal with, and baking bread is a trip - I have a long way to go to get good at it.

Regardless, it came out okay and maybe it helped that I over-cooked it a bit to compensate. They're all lopsided buns, but they taste good. Tonight is BBQ sandwich night with [personal profile] insidious.

I have been playing catch-up with my games since I have time to now, and only a few things to sew between now and Ikkicon/Christmas. (just a briefcase cover for Leorio and some bows for my roommate's niece) I started up Ys I (Chronicles version) on Steam on my work computer (because it's slow here sometimes and I'm allowed), and I've made it all the way to Zeiss in Trails in the Sky at home. The reason I was up so late finishing the bread is because I got distracted playing that, and RPing. I have a growing urge to RP Kloe in my sandbox, among all the other plot threads I have going on. Sometimes I wish it was as easy to write fic (and with random crossovers for that matter) as it was to do world crossovers in roleplay. There is not enough time in the day for all the muses I want to unleash.

Decide to bake cookies.

Pour all the ingredients into a bowl.

Mixing bowl craps out 20 seconds in.

Hand mix while watching Ai Tenshi Wedding Peach instead. Don't I feel homely.

Aside from neccessity, really. Icon relevant.

Twice in the past week I have been asked in casual conversation if I can cook. Once by a nice foreign lady at the bus stop, and once at work in a casual conversation about Thanksgiving dinner. The lady at the bus stop I can forgive, because at the risk of sounding uneducated, I don't believe that the stereotype of girls being good at that sort of thing has been broken all over the world yet. I played along when she said that I should learn so I can make my future husband happy... (uh, no?) I just didn't want to get into a long explanation about being happily single and asexual. 9_9

My coworker was just being friendly so I just waved it off, laughing that I'd poison whoever I cooked for. I think the last time I tried to bake chicken, a friend of mine can attest to the... not quite finished texture of the meat. *sweatdrop* So it's stir-fry, egg sandwiches, or nothing at all.

I don't think it's bad that not everyone can cook. Probably a good idea to be able to get yourself by, but it annoys me still. I love to eat out because it's easy, and I don't like to spend the time on it. If I was as good as [ profile] togabitoion and enjoyed creating new dishes as much as she does, you bet I would give it a try. I don't have much... understanding, I guess you could say, of what mixes well, and I'll more or less eat almost anything anyway. I've been told that what passes for decent to me actually is kind of gross.

I still feel bad sometimes when my whole family gets together that I'm old enough to probably start contributing to meals, but honestly.... I don't think it's for me. I'll still get pretty elated when I can make something edible, I just don't want to be expected to know how.
