Chocolate Cornets - Lucky Star

Lucky Star was probably one of the most popular shows of the mid to  late 2000′s.  In fact, I have a friend who makes certain to watch it at least once a year.  However, since its heyday, it’s seemed to wane in popularity.  In spite of this, some things (like this chocolate cornet, which is discussed at length in the first episode) stick with nerd culture.

So, which side do you eat your cornet from?


  • Horn/Cornet molds, or tinfoil or wax paper to make your own
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups half and half
  • 1 tbsp. milk powder
  • some water, slightly warmed (only if needed)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • 2 tbsp. melted butter
  • 1 tsp. instant yeast
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temperature


  1. Sift the flour, then add milk powder, sugar, yeast and salt. 
  2. Beat the egg slightly.
  3. Add the oil, butter and 2 tbsp. of the beaten egg into the flour mixture, and mix together. 
  4. Take ½ cup of the half and half and microwave it for 20 seconds (or just heat it on the stove until warm) and add it to the dough. 
  5. Start kneading together for around 8-10 minutes, until the dough is soft and there are no more lumps of flour remaining. If your dough mixture seems a bit dry, or you’re having a difficult time getting the flour mixed in, go ahead and add small amounts of warm water until you can mix it well.
  6. Touch a bit of oil with your fingertips and apply all over the ball of dough. Cover with a dish towel and let it rest for an hour until it doubles in size.  Keep in mind that the dough needs warmth in order to rise.  I find it helpful to let it rise on the counter near my stove top with one of the stove burners on, but you’ll want to be very careful doing this way.
  7. Preheat your oven to 350 F.
  8. While you are waiting for your dough to rise and your oven to heat, make your cone molds if you’re making them out of tinfoil or wax paper. 
  9. Cut the dough into 5 or 7 pieces, depending on the size you want your cones. Make sure they are all about the same size. Shape them into balls, then cover and set them aside to rest for 15 minutes.
  10. Take a small amount of oil, and grease the cone molds (or just use a spray like Pam).
  11. Roll each piece of dough into a rope. Roll the dough ropes around the greased cone molds.  The dough may be a little bit difficult to maneuver; if so, just let the rope sit of a few more minutes before wrapping around.  Don’t worry if the dough on the cones seems a little small, they will puff up when baking.
  12. Brush the tops of the cornets with the remaining beaten egg. Bake for 18 minutes or until golden brown. Place onto a wire rack and allow them to cool for a couple of minutes before removing the cone molds.
  13. Place chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl.
  14. Place the remaining half and half in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a simmer.
  15. Pour warm half and half over chocolate and stir until chocolate has melted.
  16. Add butter to chocolate mixture, and stir until smooth. Let cool slightly before filling.
  17. Fill the cones with chocolate let them cool.  I put mine in the fridge (maneuvering some things to keep them standing up) for about 10 minutes.  If you plan on taking it for a lunch, place a small square of wax paper on top of the chocolate before putting the cornet into the fridge, so that the chocolate won’t get messy in your lunchbox.
  18. Figure out which side to start eating it from, and enjoy!

I was once GMing for a group of my friends, one of whom was playing a Druid who had taken an oath not to harm any animals. Well, this was normally all well and good, because the rest of the party would take care of them for her and her oath wouldn’t be broken.

Then one night, she’s keeping watch when a bunch of wolves attack. Normal procedure would be to wake up the Barbarian who can keep them busy while the rest of the party gets ready for combat.

Only the Druid decided to instead make a Nature roll against the pack. She got a crit, and the pack submitted themselves to her leadership.

Events repeated themselves over the rest of the campaign until the party was being followed by what seemed like the entire contents of Noah’s Ark, all under the leadership of the Druid.

To this day, she still is using the same character. And she hasn’t lost a single animal.

Without fire
How would I rid
My body of these tremors??
These frigid shivers
That plague my tired
Watching my skin go up
Like paper
Curling in ribbons
And detaching
From the sleeping muscle.
Yielding this thing…
This grinning skeleton
But truly
I feel no
And pain is not my friend.
No, not my friend indeed.
I do need to care
For this bleached
It may not be as strong
As I once believed it
To be.

You watch ONCE UPON A TIME!? ;-;

GURL YASS, but I only watch it when I’m at my friends house X’D. My friends help me catch up with any new episodes, and I’m going to there house today so I’m gonna watch the rest of ouat (uwu)


T, E & L visited with stories from irl, & lovely gifts.
Starting to settle in socially, but everything is overwhelming in terms of rules. Inadvertently added illicit honey to blend 43.

Severe FOMO watching my beautiful friends via social media- exhausted by even the thought of wanting to respond to caring messages but not having the spoons to do it.

The freezer door always opens itself and beeps, taunting people.

The solar-powered baby chick flaps its wings slowly on the windowsill and torments B.M.

Many different political ideals in here… nearly flipped a table when someone suggested that homophobia and being against marriage equality have no correlation.
Same someone uses horrifically racist language; would love to report them… maybe I will once I learn some more assertiveness.

Romeo and Juliet Nate Maloley fanfic Part 3

I wanted to leave from the scene that just occurred ASAP! So, I grabbed my books and quickly headed to my first class.
I went through a few of my classes before finally heading to lunch! I’m starving! I was heading to the table where Sam was at so I could sit in my usual spot. On my way there, I heard some guys yelling and people chanting “fight! Fight!” The closer I got, the closer I realized that the fight was coming from where Sam, his friends and I usually sit. Once I got to where the commotion was at, I realized that the fight was between Sam and Nate. They weren’t physically fighting but, they were yelling at each other. “You need to fuckin watch yourself, pothead!” Sam said pointing a finger at Nate. “You need to fuckin mind your own business, asshole!” Nate yelled back. I didn’t want to watch this continue. I ran to them and stood between them. “Guys, stop!” I yelled at them while pushing them away from each other. “Move, y/n, so I can kick this pothead’s ass!“ Sam yelled at me. “No, Sam! Leave him alone! Why are you always so mean to him?!” I shouted at him as I stood in front of Nate. “Why are you defending this asswipe?! I’m your brother!” Sam bellowed at me. He pushed me away from Nate and got really close to him and said “you’re lucky she’s here to defend you…this time.” And with that Sam leaves with his friends and the crowd dissipates leaving Nate and me alone. I was looking down “well…I’ll see you later…I guess” I said and turned around getting ready to leave. Then, I felt someone tug my arm. “Thanks for um…thanks for that.” Nate said while rubbing the back of his neck. I stayed there silently staring at this beautiful boy in front of me. He was leaning in and, surprisingly, I found myself leaning in as well. Then I opened my eyes to see him walking away…

I like to think that with hus klassic fatality, Hanzo doesnt have to pull his face back on (tho that mental image is A++) but more its something that comes back in a half grotesque backwards burning. Like it looks like watching a tape of someones face burning off in reverse so that it grows back.

Nothing is more disturbing after seeing a friend or mentor rip their fucking face off like a halloween mask than seeing it fuckin grow back horrifically.

Johnny saw him do it once and he got so grossed out he poked Hanzo’s face making him sigh heavily like, “Yes, Cage, its real.”


Hello, and welcome to ‘The Middle of the Film’, the moment where we take a break to invite you, the audience, to join us, the film-makers, in 'Find the Fish’. We’re going to show you a scene from another film and ask you to guess where the fish is, but, if you think you know, don’t keep it to yourselves! Yell out so that all the cinema can hear you. So, here we are with…'Find the Fish’.

they just didn’t expect much out of us. a generation of girls who were born in skins that didn’t fit right, that itched or ached or hung off of our waists. we remember snap bracelets. we remember crop tops. we remember britney kissing madonna.

and when we grew up, we took into ourselves the image of a fist. i watched us learn to defend each other so fiercely that there was never again anything like it. my father once told me that a man’s place is to protect. he has never seen a teenage girl stand up for her best friends.

we ripped the spine out of the thing. we woke up with mouths full of blood and we spat it out on the concrete and drew murals in it and said: look. blood. look. we’ve been roasting in this.

a litany for a new age, for us quiet ones who feel the call of the wild inside of our lungs:

thank you, alex, who took her skin and slid it around until it was the right one, thank you, the scars on my knees from dive-tackling somebody who called her a “him”, thank you, our friendship, thank you for returning the favor and punching my high school bully,

thank you pretty girls with more to them than being pretty, who sobbed on my shoulders about big things and who painted each other’s nails and who braided each other’s hair and who cared, so much, so often, about wage gaps and party lines and forest ecology, thank you for teaching me everybody is pretty no matter how much they think they’re ugly,

thank you every girl i ever kissed, thank you every girl who taught me to be okay with this, thank you every person who stood outside with a picket, thank you for painting rainbows on your cheeks, for holding my hand, for saying, “we’re gonna get through this,”

thank you, me, for turning our skin inside out but still staying, still staying, no matter how often we tried to leave us for someplace distant, thank you, every person who is still breathing, thank you, those of you who scars who approach others with red marks and ask if they’re falling apart

thank you girls “with curves” like me, with rolls on our hips, with fire in our teeth, with hours of self-hating finally turned into a masterpiece, thank you selfies, thank you body positivity,

thank you girls of color for teaching me that my daddy’s Cuban blood is not muddy, thank you for fighting, thank you for standing up no matter how many people you carry on your shoulders,

thank you, the word “bitch,” thank you for turning into “beast mode,“ into “damn straight,” thank you, all you out there who were called a bitch just for saying: don’t you dare touch her, don’t talk to her, don’t try and take her, don’t look at her like that, don’t say that ever again, don’t bother her or i promise you’re about to be bothered by me.

thank you for being. thank you for us. thank you for being my leaders, my air support, my cavalry.

oh, yes, we’ve grown up now. we’re castles, we’re our own team of knights, we’re willing to shove our hands deep and pull out the sinew.

we remember the shit you put us through. we won’t let it continue.

—  come over. the quiet ones are the most dangerous, i’m told // r.i.d
I don’t get why people are making such a big deal about Dan’s tweet.

So Dan tweeted this 

and people are saying he’s shading “doddle” (probably got that name wrong) and Evan Edgier. Or that he’s upset cause he thinks someone will out phan. 

But Dan isn’t even talking about his secrets! He said “other people’s” 

I think what Dan meant was that if someone you know starts gossiping about something a friend told them in private, then you should trust the gossiper. 

Honestly the only thing I think was odd about this was Tanya’s Burrs response

Though she was probably kidding, from my understanding she is saying that it’s okay to spread other people secrets, as long as you aren’t telling it to a group of people all at once. 

((I don’t watch Tanya, so I don’t know is this is what she meant))


IdK I HIGHLY doubt than Dan is being shady 

remember don’t be a drama llama 

i will never get why people complain about dan and phil appearing in cat’s vlogs and call her an attention seeker, i mean she’s v lovely and all that but if you don’t like her personality or her videos or whatever you still gotta respect the only friend of them that is actively supplying us and keeping us updated on how they’re doing at vidcon/playlist??? i’m kinda sick of seeing people bashing cat under her vlogs that has d&p in them tbh, that’s just rude and totally not cool man

edit: i personally don’t find cat’s videos interesting, actually i’ve only watched ones that have d&p in it, but i’ve never once bashed her because w h y ???

Hey friends of Skookum! We are going to try to call in for the live taping of The Chris Gethard Show (thechrisgethardshow​) tomorrow (WITH JASON SUDEKIS and JEFF ROSENSTOCK) if anyone wants to watch it live! Even if he doesn’t get on, it’s a show entirely dedicated to dogs, with the entire studio audience being puppies and dogs so it’s definitely going to be a good time :)

I’ll post a link once I have one for the live show, it will be at 8pm EST / 5pm PST. Fingers crossed he makes it on and doesn’t bark as much as he just did during a test Skype call with laughterkey​!

Here he is enjoying the last episode with paulftompkins​ and chrisgethard

anonymous asked:

What do you think Inuyasha would do once everyone passed away?

I think he would be heartbroken. I think he would mourn in his own way, whether it was screaming and crying and destroying things, or just silently shutting down. But then I think he’d move on. I think Inuyasha is nothing is not resilient. I think he would spend his life watching over their descendants, even if from a distance. And then, I think he would check up on the families one day, and find the spitting image of the friends he lost centuries ago sitting around a table, laughing, and enjoying life. And he wouldn’t expect them to be the same people. I think he would find some stupid way to get to know them for who they are, and not who they were in a past life. But he wouldn’t be able to help himself from glancing over at the young lady with long black hair, blue eyes, and a smile that rose him up and tore him apart so long ago.

I think, with time, he would be happy again.

My friend has started watching season 2 of Once Upon a Time and is sad about all the things Rumple and Belle have to go through.

But she says to me, ‘I heard they got married last season. So everything is cool with them now, right?’

And I’m just like…..
