but really it's awesome

I've been imagining Gwyn looking similar to Varro for the Spartacus TV series. I started rewatching Spartacus out of boredom, and when Varro appeared on screen I thought he could be a good fit for Gwyn - tall, ripped warrior's body, loads of blond curls, good-looking but at the same time kind of cute. It was mainly the hair. Quote my housemate: "I want to boing his curls".

While Gwyn’s curls are way way floofier (and also his shoulders are broader because he’s a swordmaster and not like…beefing out in a gymnasium - the physique of professional sword fighters who wear medieval style plate armour is actually a fair bit different to what we’d associate with being ‘ripped’ today - and being ‘ripped’ today is often not at all functional for warriors of the past - but that’s all we have to cast swordfighters in period TV and movies so….the inaccuracies remain), I can definitely see why folks like yourself would see Gwyn/Varro as being compatible!

(That makes way more sense to me than the Augus/Hiddleston comparison anyway - though that’s just me being a stupidly fussy author and not like, anything to do with reality where people could facecast Augus with Sportacus if they wanted to and I can’t stop them - all I can do is put the descriptions in the text, which people are welcome to ignore as much as they like, that’s the gift the reader gives :D lol - (I know that, because I frequently ignore author descriptions, especially if I accidentally got an image in my head before I got a really thorough description; this is also the same mechanism of how a billion people thought Rue was white in Hunger Games incidentally, despite actual descriptors - people see what they like and it has very little to do with what I say)).

(But the floof of Gwyn’s curls are epic. Like, if you pressed down on the top of the curls you’d at least go through about two good inches of just hair before you reached his scalp. (Incidentally Gwyn with wet hair is hilarious. His hair is actually fairly long, but because it boings up into huge ridiculous curls, you don’t realise that until he’s sporting the wet dog look and Augus is trying not to laugh at him). But otherwise like I’m looking at pictures of Varro right now like y’know, he would’ve been good to reference about a billion years ago when artists started asking: ‘what actor does Gwyn look like?’ Him along with the dude who plays Dyson from Lost Girl (sans facial hair) and I think there was like an ice skater dude as well.)

I was so happy when Kelly Marie Tran was cast in Star Wars, and Rose is by far the character I’m most excited to meet!!

I love playing with my overdramatic friend.

What's your favorite recipe?

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.

there. insomnia fixed.

I just saw yet another person griping about autistics “romanticizing autism” and it only makes me more determined to be openly and proudly autistic. it’s not “romanticizing” it, it’s loving myself in a society that told me not to.

Brain: What is it you love so much about Night in the Woods

Me: Well, let’s see.
1. It shows the harsh realities of living in the lower middle class
2. Accurately portrays the struggles of a starving urban town
3. Puts a lot of value into the bonds between family and friends
4. Shows the inconsistencies and sometimes unhealthy realities concerning religion and what happens when you put too much anchorage in your beliefs
5. Gives a very logical perspective to religion and ethereal entities as a whole
6. Has a mentally ill character that is not romanticized, is not evil, and is not magically ‘cured’ by the end
7. Shows that suppressing anger is not always the best option.
8. Has very relatable and realistic characters
9. Shows the struggles of ordinary folks just trying to make due and make the best out of their shitty lives
10. Doesn’t spoon feed you the idea of happily ever after and shows that a lot of the time life sucks and there is no real reason for it and you just have to roll with the punches and get hurt and it’s okay because when it hurts to lose something, that something meant something to you.

Brain: And the gay couple

Me: Well, yes, they were a very nice touch

So, I finally watched some videos from the blue boi @crankgameplays, and now I just really really really want to be his friend??? I like him

Thank you, Chicken People

Thank you so much, all of you that have been interested in learning about chickens and how to give them a good life. Chickens are really incredible and have so long been considered disposable, stupid, and worthless beyond food, and nothing could be further than the truth. I have been lucky enough to be around birds my entire life, and have had companion parrots since I was 5 years old. I love my parrots, but it is clear that they are complex, emotional, and for the most part still very wild animals and only make good pets/companions for a small number of people. Chickens have been domesticated for thousands of years, and love living around people. My chickens have been the sweetest and most entertaining pets/companions I’ve had in my life, and I’m happy that so many people are interested in them! Chickens are often what people think they want in a pet bird but don’t realize it– intelligent, entertaining, personable, and some are very friendly. Some will sit in my lap and nap while I pet them like a cat, with no emotional baggage or social behavior that is complex beyond the understanding of the average owner (the way parrots are!). Chickens are just wonderful pets. That said, please don’t make a chicken into something it is not; only a few breeds are truly suitable as house pets, and most chickens are very social. Meaning: Most (not all but most) chickens are happiest outdoors with other chickens! As with all animals, careful research and suitable housing will result in a much happier relationship!
