You aren’t defective if you have a chronic mental or physical disability and you cannot heal. You are enough and awesome just as you are. I am so sorry if you feel the pressure or are being pressured to recover and you aren’t able too.
not combat rations, thats for sure. ive had enough of those for a lifetime.
but my latest food hit has been pretzel bites. pretzels are an awesome food but rarely available fresh when i want to eat them, which is usually when i’ve woken up in the middle of the night. they’re relatively labor-intensive to make, which is good once the insomnia sets in. keeps me busy. plus, pretzels are sweet on the inside, salty on the outside, just like me. except im also salty on the inside. dont listen to steve.
when i make pretzels, it’s by the metric ton, so the recipe i have makes approximately a million of them.probably you will not want this many, because you don’t have thor or steve to help you eat them. or clint. probably you could just shove some into a vaccum cleaner instead, thatd be about the same. so divide the recipe in half or quarters for normal human consumption. take 11 cups of flour, 1 cup of brown sugar, ½ cup of oil and mix. 4 cups of warm water gets 11 teaspoons of yeast and sits for a bit, then goes in the flour mix. then mix it and let it rise for about an hour. the dough should be sticky to the touch and absolutely awful to get out of your metal fingers. while you wait, wander your living area for some poor sucker to rope into helping you, because stage 2 is easier with help. or you can sit down and wonder why you talk yourself into doing things like this. consider your choices. it’s already too late to go back to sleep; youve got dough rising.
get a deep fry pan or sauce pan and fill with about two inches of water. bring it to a rolling boil on the stove and add in three or so tablespoons of baking soda. you really can’t do too much of that, as long as the water’s not getting super cloudy. preheat the oven to 400 degrees. wake steve up and tell him he has to help.
get a couple egg yolks in a bowl with a basting brush, and find some kosher salt or sea salt. grease up a few pans.
flour a surface and roll the dough out until it’s between ½ and ¼ in thick. get your poor unsuspecting minion to cut out bite sized bits. i use an inch and a half circle cookie cutter, but you can use whatever you want, really. tony used a laser cutter last time i let him help, which was…not ideal.
drop the cut outs into the boiling soda water, and let them sit for a few seconds, then fish them out. you can use your robot hand for that, but again, you’ll be getting dough out of it for days. i let them drip dry on a cookie drying sheet, but you could also drop them on a clean dishtowel i guess. you just dont want them to be wet when you put them on the cookie sheet.
they’re not gonna expand a ton, so just stuff em up close to each other on the sheet. paint the tops with egg yolks and sprinkle with salt. pop em in the oven for 10-15 min or until golden brown.
repeat the boiling-and-baking until you want to die, then keep going until you run out of dough. while the last batch is baking, take a half a stick of butter, a quarter cup of flour and make a roux in a saucepan. add two cups of milk and two cups of cheddar cheese, some salt and pepper to taste, and a quarter cup of mustard, give or take. im showing you how much to use with my hands but you cant see it. sorry, i dont really measure stuff most of the time. heat and stir till it’s melty and amazing, and dip pretzels on in there.
by the time you have completed this process and eaten as many pretzel bites as you want–and there will be enough. it’s a dang big recipe–you will want to enter a food coma and sleep forever. or for 70 years or so.
In every generation, one slayer is born… because a bunch of men who died thousands of years ago made up that rule… So I say we change the rule. I say my power should be our power… From now on, every girl in the world who might be a slayer will be a slayer. Every girl who could have the power will have the power. Can stand up, will stand up, every one of us. Make your choice. Are you ready to b e s t r o n g ?
on a Miraculous musing that I shared
last year (that I can’t seem to find on my main blog) about Master Fu taking
Nino under his wing to become the next holder of the Turtle Miraculous and
awesomely enough, I’m not the only miraculer who shares this thought. The very
first time I saw Master Fu, I immediately thought of Mr. Miyagi cause you have
to admit, the resemblance is definitely there and since then I’ve been itching
and hoping that the series would do a Karate
Kid inspired episode where Nino comes to Master Fu for help.
maybe there’s this new schoolyard bully with the hots for Alya who starts targeting
Nino specifically due to his relationship with and somewhat own romantic
interest in our foxy gal; constantly challenging him to foolish fights for
Alya’s love. Being the nonchalant character he is, Nino dismisses the bully’s initial
advances at harrying as he wasn’t the type of guy to want to fight anyone.
in similar Karate Kid type of fashion, Master Fu firstly meets Nino
after he saves him from being pummelled by said bully and his comrades when
they suddenly cornered him after school. Following that event, Nino is forced to
fight back against said bully; seeking out Fu for help, practically begging him
to teach him how to fight; a request which Fu surprisingly accepts.
is how I imagined Fu’s first encounter with Nino to be like. And after helping
him the first time, Master Fu starts to acknowledge potential in Nino—a potential which inspires him to start
training him to be his successor. I
imagine that at first Wayzz wouldn’t be too keen with the idea of Nino one day
replacing Master Fu as his new master cause I figured that, unlike Plagg, Tikki
and possibly the other kwamis, Wayzz is the one who’s been with his original
holder the longest; considering that Fu is over 100 years old. While the others
had had to change holders over the years, Wayzz has been with Fu since the day one
and is very much loyal to him.
ultimately I imagine once he sees Nino’s good qualities, Wayzz will begin to
warm up to the young lad and actually starts to care for his well being; seeing
a lot of the qualities in Nino that he did in Master Fu that made him love him
as his master. Plus I think this kind of scenario could be great for Nino’s own
character development as a teacher-mentor relationship with Master Fu can
certainly help mould him into a stronger individual and hero. Not to mention that it’ll be really touching to see Master Fu
have a sort of father-son/grandfather-grandchild/close family oriented
relationship with at least one of our young heroes and I think Nino would be
the perfect candidate to bring out that side of him. We don’t know if Fu used
to have any kids of his own. I doubt he ever did given his duty as Miraculous
holder and Ancient Guardian (and even if hid have some, he probably outgrew
them since he’s practically immortal). So yeah, I’d love to see that kind of
bond with Fu, Nino and Wayzz in the series, if possible.
Do I think Master Fu
will choose Nino as his successor for the Turtle Miraculous?Indeed I do.
However, do I think
he’ll just hand it to him on a silver platter like he did with Adrien and
HA! Hell no! I think Master Fu will go full Mr. Miyagi on Nino and make him
work for his miraculous, putting him through a rigorous training regimen to
build his strength and test his worth. Plus it’ll be good for comical moments
when Fu unintentionally pushes poor Nino too far and has to be scolded by Wayzz
for getting too excited and overdoing
things with his student. Poor Turtle Sensei just wants to see his Turtle Kouhai
love to see this become canon but…for now these are all just headcanons of
mine. In the meantime, a squiggle meister can dream…and draw, am I right? Alrighty
I’ve rambled enough on this. As always, I hope everyone enjoys this week’s
newest ML squiggle art and I hope you also enjoyed my Miraculous musing

Friendly reminder that this reflects my own personal taste in music, is in no way meant to be a comprehensive list for anything but (hopefully) your own enjoyment, so on and so forth. You guys are awesome enough to know that! <3
