food deconstructed

  • [Scene: We recently discussed the concept of "deconstructed" food at trendy restaurants, and then while getting ready for school...]
  • Beth: [age 9] "What am I having for lunch?"
  • Me: "I made you a deconstructed peanut-butter-and-fluff sandwich."
  • Beth: "A deconstructed sandwich?"
  • Me: "Yeah. It's two slices of bread, a handful of peanuts, and a couple of marshmallows."
  • Beth: "Dad, that's not really 'deconstructed.' It's not like you made marshmallows out of fluff."
  • Me: "Maybe the words are wrong. 'Deconstructed' sounds like we took something already created and broke it back down. Deconstructed foods are really 'un-constructed' or 'non-constructed' because they were never constructed in the first place."
  • Beth: "Like... you can't make peanuts from peanut butter."
  • Me: "Maybe if you used crunchy peanut butter and collected all the little bits."
  • Beth: "You'd need a million jars of it."
  • Me: "It's still more about deconstructing the /idea/ of food than deconstructing the actual food."
  • Beth: "You could send me to school with peanut butter and a video of people making peanut butter out of peanuts, but play it backwards so they're actually making peanuts out of peanut butter."
  • Me: "So you'd watch the video while you ate the peanut butter?"
  • Beth: "Yeah, and it would be like eating peanuts."
  • Me: "I don't think that would work. I once watched a video of a woman giving birth to a baby, but accidentally watched it in reverse, and saw them push the baby back inside the mother, and it really did not make me think of how babies were made."
  • Beth: "If that really happened, that mom would be really surprised."
  • Me: "Maybe the kid wasn't quite ready yet, and they had to put him back for a little longer. You know, like muffins in the oven."
  • Beth: "What? You can't compare babies to food."
  • Me: "Haven't you ever heard the phrase 'she's got a bun in the oven' for a pregnant woman?"
  • Beth: "Ummm... no. Never."
  • Me: "Don't you remember when somebody asked if I had a bun in the oven?"
  • Beth: "I thought it was a joke about you eating too many buns."
  • Me: "I was just trying to deconstruct them... with my stomach."
  • Beth: "That's how I like to deconstruct food!"

The “Deconstructed K-Pop Logos” quiz is back again to wreak havoc on your brain cells!

On the heels of the deconstructed food trend is…..deconstructed logos! Do you have the keen sense to tell who these deconstructed logos belong to? Some of these groups have variations of logos depending on their albums, and to make it even harder (I know, I’m maniacal!), these logos have been broken down and…

                               001. SETTING: LOS ANGELES

LA is one of the biggest cities in the country and so I figured that for my VERY FIRST RPH guide I would provide some information about what living in Los Angeles is actually like. There are so many misconceptions about Los Angeles and California as a whole that I thought I could shed some light so people can have more accuracy in their LA-set rps! Without further ado, here are ten points I thought I’d bring up (and if you have any questions that are more specific, my askbox is open). (Of course, standard disclaimer: these are just my experiences blah blah I’m sure there are people who live here who would disagree with me.)

source: lived in LA my entire life, born here, my parents were born here, my cat was born here, I go to school here, I breathe the smog, etc.
