FOOD, rambling about togetherness Show more
I am still convinced we all have four core dishes: A Soup, A Sandwich, An Intentionally Preserved/Fermented food, and An UNINTENTIONALLY preserved/fermented food.
Every culture, everywhere, is a combination of experimenting with those four dishes while trying not to get murdered by someone who's convinced their sandwiches are better than yours.
This is a massive simplification but I am drunk and upset people fight so much over minuetea. Thousands of years of it!
I know A sit down and a shared hot pot won't fix anything overall but I think it is important to know how to cook and recognize similarities in the core elements of food globally.
It is not enough to undo the damage of global policy, I know, but if two families set across a divide at any point take to heart anything I say and make their Grandmother's dishes together, share them, shake hands and stop hating one another I will have at least won ONE thing and all this will be worth it now and forever.
Dragon-self pronouns; CW for compactness Show more
This is under a CW purely for clutter reasons. I've little shame and not much restraint, but I like to arrange myself for neat display!
I had someone ask, so I thought I might elaborate properly.
Renolethyn "Eyeless" Michael/Chelle Edelwood, Marsh Dragon Extraordinaire! The name of my dragonsona and current working psuedonym. A fictional type of dragon--as opposed to all those real dragons--with weird gender things going on.
The short version: I am male. Renolethyn is male. I would absolutely prefer being called 'he' offline (If you don't I'm not going to clobber you but you WILL get the smallest pizza/cake slices, be called on last, and not get a Christmas card).
Online, Renolethyn (and myself by extension) is just fine getting he or she in reference. I'm well aware how Reno looks. "She" is kind of enjoyable in fact, hence the display name here and birdsite.
Canon of fictional race if you care:
Marsh dragons have 3 sexes and 4 concrete/majority genders.
[Male/Female/Egg-carrying Male] and
Male/Female/Male (female secondary sex characteristics)/Female (Male secondary sex characteristics).
No I don't have a shorthand for any of that, sorry.
For both male types and single female type, equal spread of (being tall/broad shouldered/no-breasted) and (curvy hips/breasts/slender waist). Renolethyn is Egg-Carrying Male (Female Secondary Characteristics).
You can use all that info if you want to be a marsh dragon yourself! Or just like, yell at me for being wrong somewhere.
I'm so passionately angry that they made these meathead care SO MUCH about a useless robot. I wanted this story to be a throwaway--but they're human enough to care about their disposable drones, so now i have to pay attention!!
Oh my god
I'm playing Gears of War 5 with some friends, right? One scene, condensed:
"We need to get out of here!"
"But Dave (a flying roomba with a taser) is still out there!"
"Who cares, Dave's a robot!"
"That's not his fault!!!!"
jesus christ. actually some of the most enjoyable, believable characterization. And I hate that these idiots I don't care about are like, real people who care about stupid shit in a believable way.
You know what's wild? Plain popcorn is a vegetable
Really wanted to cook some chicken breasts to have lunchmeat but the chicken is frozen so I guess I'll make...potatoes and an egg or two to munch right now. And more coffee. I know it's 7pm, who cares
