'a taste of the 60s'

Green tea or other tea? (I recently found some mango green tea that's really nice! Also you should brew green tea at 60 degrees Celsius (140 farenheit) it tastes much better that way ^.^ if you do it at boiling it tastes super bitter. Love your blog!

Thanks you! I personally don’t like green tea but I do drink Slimatee which is made from frangular bar, senna leaf, peppermint leaf and hibiscus flowers. It isn’t as strong as green tea, it’s really good at stopping you from bloating, it helps cleanse your body AND it aids weight loss. I would 100% recommend. :)

I cannot wait to get married...

I hear a lot of guys talk about marriage like its a burden or they’re dreading that day, I think its because of the perception we have of it.

Maybe its because I grew up around women or what but I don’t really hear that what if you get divorced or what if she leaves you etc…

For me, marriage is a sacred pact between 2 people and the big man upstairs. Not just for the glamour of the day and whatnot but the fact that on that day, I will know I’ve made the greatest decision of my life, from the time I get on one knee and nervously ask that question and she says yes, to her walking down the aisle, watching her realising that i will never be more sure than I will be at the time to our first kiss as a married couple and tasting the next"60 years together"

I speak this into existence.

She realises that when you start to love a person, you start to lose your mind. It’s a bit like poetry. They start to eat you alive, bit by bit, gut by gut, until there’s nothing else left besides the admiration and flesh between their teeth.

When he kisses her for the first time, she can taste it. She finds, she likes the taste of blood just fine.

The Hollies - A Taste Of Honey 

I think about the fact that Frank’s nose has been busted so many times he A: snores like a monster and B: has no sense of taste anymore. 

Like he tastes but it’s shot, he doesn’t really taste subtle flavor in anything when he eats, so a lot of his diet (on top of being protein rich and full of energy for all the effort he exerts) is stuff that has very strong taste. Onions on all his sandwiches, horseradish, etc etc. Like. It’s a subconscious thing, that he adds really powerfully flavored things to his food, since his main priority is ‘need protein’ but he’ll also dump chili powder into a lot of things and just. Boy’s gotta really work to taste stuff so he goes for the strongest stuff he can fine.

Why you need to shut up about “Whitewashing” in Doctor Strange.

Because you don’t read the damn comics. I’ve been seeing all this debate from people, and one thing is abundantly clear: the people complaining have never read a doctor Strange comic before.

Doctor Strange was created in the 60 in bad taste with tons of racist tropes and stereotypes. While I enjoy going back to read these comics I always take it with a grain of salt that these offensive ideas were a part of a misguided time, and I need to appreciate the art past the inclusion of those outdated ideas. Same with Huck Finn or literally anything old because white people have ruined everything. Do you really want Marvel to adapt “Superior white man finds old mystic Asian man and shows all the monks they’re not as good as him”? No. You don’t. You’d be bitching about that.

And in either case, here’s the main point THE ANCIENT ONE DOES ABOUT FUCK ALL IN THE STRANGE MYTHOS. Yes the Ancient One taught Strange, but he appeared in like 4 issues, sat on a pillow, explained magic, handed him a lovely cape, and died. Then he stopped existing for decades. This is not some long richly storied character or some iconic character. No one is making Green Hornet with a white Kato. The Ancient One is NOT a big deal.

So to all the people who are looking for things to be angry about rather then reacting to decisions appropriately how about you look at Luis from Ant-Man. That’s a goofy cholo voiced felon idiot who drives a van that plays la cucaracha, and he is the ONLY Hispanic character in the MCU films. Where were all you racially conscious people when that shit happened?

It’s not just about more representation. It’s about the right representation.

Hello! I haven’t done this whole penpal thing before, so I’d like to give it a try! I like a bunch of stuff. Music - bands like Nirvana, Radiohead and MCR. My taste in music ranges from rock to grunge, Jazz, 50’s/60’s music, pop, to KPOP & even JROCK. I’m also into books, and I’m currently trying to get back into reading after a year of being in a reading slump. I like books such as Harry Potter, Wonder, Openly Straight, Memoirs of a Geisha, etc. I’m also a huge nerd for quotes from literature authors like Jane Austen, Virginia Woolf, even Franz Kafka. As for movies, I like, of course, Harry Potter, Star Wars, the X-Men movies or superhero movies in general, Penelope, Becoming Jane, Heathers. My favorite genres go from drama to suspense-thrillers, depending on my mood. TV Shows like friends, How I Met Your Mother, Legion, Mr. Robot, too!

I’m quite awkward at first, but I’m always open for making new friends! (Also I’m pansexual, if saying that counts for something. I’m just looking for people who’s alright with talking on email/social media, and are fine with occasional deep conversations about, well, anything.) 

Preferences: 15-19, not homophobic or racist

But ok, you know how everyone likes to think Steve is bad with technology because he’s from the 40s? And you know how Wakanda is supposed to be the most advanced society on Earth?

Imagine Sam walking around Wakanda and having, like, no clue what half of “these things” are (it’s probably a blender but it could also be a coffee maker? All Sam knows is that if he puts things in it, something slightly more liquid comes out and it tastes good like 60% of the time). 

And he’s smart and wants to learn, and soon he’s picking up on stuff.

But he also is a huge troll and he likes to hang around T’Challa (whenever he’s not doing king things) and ask questions and see T’Challa try to explain how to do fairly regular, boring things like change the TV channel or turn the lights off. 

At some point Steve is there watching and he’s just quiet the whole time but has this smile on his face that Sam recognizes as his shit-eating grin, except T’Challa hasn’t spent enough time around Steve (as opposed to Captain America) to recognize it. 

So Sam knows that something is going to happen when Steve asks:

“Before I forget, your highness, Sam and I were going to use the gym a while ago but we couldn’t figure out how to change the amount of weight. It was no issue for me, but he…” And so T’Challa, who honestly probably knows that something is up by this point, goes down to the gym to help them.

“How much would you like me to calibrate it for?” He asks, an innocent question except Steve still has his shit-eating grin because the bastard knows Sam has Feelings (yes, with a capital) for T’Challa. 

And Sam does his best to act nonchalant when he asks T’Challa to put on way more weight than is actually a good idea. 

“If you ever wanted to join us, you’re welcome too,” Steve adds. 

They all know that T’Challa has a private gym in his own quarters and he’s far too busy to spend time with his guests.

He shows up the next time Sam and Steve are running. Steve only loops Sam three times, instead of his usual five. 

It’s probably the nicest thing Steve has ever done for him. 

And then they lift weights and Sam struggles but has to pretend he isn’t because T’Challa is right there and if T’Challa offers to spot Sam, well, that doesn’t add extra motivation.

Actually it really doesn’t because now Sam has to look up while he’s doing this and the best, most kissable lips are right there and Sam has to resist the urge to kiss them.

He lasts maybe ten minutes.

T’Challa kisses right back. 


So people had been asking for cooking posts and I had some time today and I made gnocchi! Gnocchi is a kind of pasta that is usually made with potatoes, but can be made with really anything you can form into a dumpling. 

You start with some potatoes. You want them to be cooked all the way for this dish. The recipe I used called for roasting two potatoes, but if you already have cooked potatoes then just use those. You want the potato to be very smooth, so if you have a potato ricer this is a good time to use it. If you don’t have one, it’s fine. Just put in some elbow grease and mash the potatoes. 

Next you add in ¾ flour, ¼ cup of ricotta cheese, and salt and pepper. Just as a reminder potatoes need a loooot of seasoning, so use way more salt and pepper than you think you need to. Many recipes call for adding some kind of herb into the dough as well. Thyme is quite popular, but you can really use anything and flavor it to your pallet. Once you’ve got the dough combined pretty well, make a well in the middle of it and then mix in a beaten egg. The dough is pretty thick so using your hands is probably the easiest way to actually mix it here. 

Once you have the dough made you want to break it into chunks and roll it out into a long cigar shape, then cut roughly bite sized pieces off of it. Once you’ve got them cut press your thumb into the top of them lightly to make a little dimple. Supposedly this is so whatever sauce you serve it with can sort of pool into it and be absorbed into the potato. 

Now that you’ve got all of your pieces made it’s time to cook them! Bring some water to a boil and then dump them in. Be sure to give the pot a shake so that they don’t stick to anything. Let them cook in the boiling water until they start to float. Once they have wait a moment more then drain the water from the pot and take the gnocchi out to dry. While they are drying heat up some olive oil in a pan. I really recommend a non stick pan for this part since I had some trouble with them sticking to my stainless steel pan. Once the oil has heated up and the gnocchi are dry put them into the oil. All you are trying to do here is saute them and add some color to each side since they are already cooked through. 

Let them cook on each side for a few minutes or until they are golden brown. It only took a few minutes when I did it, but every stove top cooks differently. Once they are browned on one side, flip them over and let them cook on the other. You’ll want to use a bit more oil than you think you need for this part since the gnocchi will absorb quite a bit of it leaving very little left in the pan to brown the other side. Once you’ve got them browned on both sides, throw in a know of butter, some peas, and the zest of a lemon. If you are using frozen peas like I did you just want to warm them through in the butter and bring everything up to a nice hot temperature. 

And now you’re done! Dish the gnocchi up and serve it with fresh Parmesan cheese. This recipe didn’t have much going as a sauce other than some butter and oil with lemon zest. The gnocchi is pretty much a vessel for sauce and whatever herbs you make it with, so once you’ve figured out how to make the gnocchi you can do whatever you want with it. Maybe you want to use a heavy cream sauce, maybe a nice white wine and butter sauce, maybe some kind of tomato sauce. They all would work, and you’d just have to alter the spices slightly to make sure that it all tastes well together. I think bacon, or since this is an Italian dish, pancetta would go quite well on this. 

Anyways that it’s for today. I hope y’all learned something about how to make gnocchi! It’s a tasty versatile pasta that is a nice recipe to have in your arsenal. I would say it’s of medium difficulty. It has quite a few steps and if you’re not familiar with how each ones goes it’s possible to go really wrong. But if you have solid fundamentals then it’s a walk in the park to make. 

Also if you’re making for just 1-2 people I would half the recipe. I had so much gnocchi that I had to cook it in 2 batches, and it seemed like enough to feed 4 or so. 

Looking at these two photos side by side, you cannot help but see proof of George and Ringo’s brotherly, if not cosmic, bond. If this is not the same shirt then they definitely had similar taste in clothes. Anyone have a story on this shirt? Is it the same one or did a designer make one identical for both of them?

Also, how much would I have to pay you to let me fuck your cousin?

Bitch I’d pay you, thats how fucking bad he is. He’s like me so you’d be stuck with an annoying cut. But he cute so, like (20 for him +tattoos =30 + nice hair=32 +classic cars =40 + kick ass taste in music = 60) 60 up front. His words not mine! 😂

Wifey!! 60 and 121? Love you!

60 (pet peeve):

Things like this 

AAAAAAND i have a very big pet peeve when it comes to ks fanfic, because apparently a lot of people think that reading smut is synonymous with being a kind of “slut”. I just can’t see Kakashi in that way, I mean, he’s a complete dork, who, also seems to treat his closest beings with two arms away and according to the canon context he’s the biggest victim of burnout syndrome, linked to survivor’s guilt syndrome and depressive conduct. The symptoms are: 

According to burnout syndrome 

Psychosomatic symptoms: headache, gastrointestinal discomfort, insomnia, among others.
Behavioral symptoms: Relational problems, work absenteeism.
Emotional symptoms: affective distancing, anxiety and decreased work performance.
Defensive symptoms: Denial of previous symptoms and displacement of feelings towards other areas

Now the survivor’s guilt:

Impression and anxiety elevated towards death. Recurring images and memories of the disaster, nightmares and thoughts about death recur to the sufferer’s mind.
Blame for the death of others, finding guilty. There is a sense of guilt over survival and self-condemnation for having survived (or not being able to rescue others) while the others died.
Emotional dullness, feeling of degradation and desensitization to the experience
Psychic dullness, apathyisolationdeterioration of social relations, Internal struggle to find some cognitive formulation of the meaning of disaster (religious, rational, metaphysical).

And lastly but not less important; depression:

Irritable mood or low most of the time.
Difficulty falling asleep or excess of sleep.
Large change in appetite, often with gain or loss of weight.
Tiredness and lack of energy.
Feelings of worthlessness, self-hatred and guilt.
Difficult to focus.
Slow or fast movements.
Inactivity and withdrawal of usual activities.
Feelings of hopelessness and abandonment.
Repetitive thoughts of death or suicide.
Loss of pleasure in activities, disinterest even in sexual activity.

In short, if it were to read smut, I think a lot of us do it and we do not necessarily have a sex life that is THAT active. 

But that’s just me and my psychological researches :D 

121 (Am I allergic to anything?) No! :D just to people most of the time 


anonymous asked:

I dislike concern trolls & larries so much b/c they are not leaving any room in the fandom for opposite opinion. Like I can't even say I hate these possible suits without everyone assuming I am a hater or doesn't believe in the album or some variation. I think I am allowed to dislike what he does. Like this suit is not even confirmed yet. I don't think I am a bad fan not liking how bland they look specially as they are same suits just different colors . Anyways will never say this off anon😥🙈

You are most definitely not a bad fan for liking those suits. Those suits are bright, in your face and distinctly retro. They are an acquired taste!

I personally love them cos I am an absolute sucker for ‘60s and ‘70s fashion, I love it to death. But I am equally aware that many people would find them hideous!  When I was younger I wore vintage ‘60s outfits all the time and people were always yelling at me about wearing my granny’s curtains lol :)

I think it’s perfectly possible to hate those suits while still liking the fact that Harry is out there being a peacock and being playful and creative with his look while referencing some of the greatest stars in rock history.
