Hello, readers! We’d like to thank you for showing interest in our project! And before we continue, we’d like to know:

What do you want to read about? We already have a basic plot structured, but we’d very much like to hear your thoughts! What sort of actions should the characters take? What kind of endings, be it bad or good, would be most fitting to you?

Please give us your thoughts by sending in an ask, and we’ll consider them to perhaps appear in the story!

Thank you!

I don’t really mind doing these things so if anyone else wants to tag me then feel free to. xD

But it appeared to Dorian Gray that the true nature of the senses had never been understood, and that they had remained savage and animal merely because the world had sought to starve them into submission or to kill them by pain, instead of aiming at making them elements of a new spirituality, of which a fine instinct for beauty was to be the dominant characteristic. As he looked back upon man moving through History, he was haunted by a feeling of loss. So much had been surrendered! and to such little purpose! There had been mad, wilful rejections, monstrous forms of self-torture and self-denial, whose origin was fear, and whose result was a degradation infinitely more terrible than that fancied degradation from which, in their ignorance, they had sought to escape, Nature, in her wonderful irony, driving out the anchorite to feed the wild animals of the desert and giving to the hermit the beasts of the field as companions.

Miscellaneous BEER, Olive, Artichoke Heart, and Mushroom Condiment

tapenade (ˈtæpənɑːd) — n a savoury paste made from capers, olives, and anchovies, with olive oil and lemon juice

Well fuck that; ain’t makin’ no beer tapenade!  

Then what will I call today’s little dish?  A spread?  A paste?  Miscellaneous beer, olive, artichoke heart, and mushroom condiment?  As of writing this (this riiiiiiight heeeere), I have yet to create this, er… creation.  So, before I get too into it, let me rant on the word “tapenade” and others like it.

Tapenade?  Seriously?  Apparently, it comes from the Provençal word for capers but, really, I don’t particularly give two shits.  It’s just one of those words that gets to me.  So, I think I know how to pronounce it but it pisses me off, okay?  Tah-pen-ahhhhhd!  Blech!  When I typed it out on my computer and got Stephen Hawking to read it out to me, the idiot pronounced it tape-nade.  Two syllables.  Just as it looks.  Fuck yes.  Hilarious.  So, yeah, it’s one of those words that gets to me.  Like “patronage” (this one is actually the reverse of the Tapenade Issue; pay-trun-idge should be pahhh-tron-ahhhhj in my mind; sounds right classy).  Or recluse (re-cloose should be WRECK-LOOSE! Badass, I know).

So, kids, who’s here to hear me bitch about words and who’s here to watch me gobble down some “food”?  Yeah, you want the “food”, but you can’t have it because you are living inside my computer and your words can’t hurt me (okay, yes they can; I’m fragile).

Step one began earlier this morning: I put out some frozen bread dough to thaw.  Sure I could use a bagel (bag-el, not bay-gull) or some store-bought bread, but I feel like fucking pan frying some home-dough!  No, not toutons, all my NL lovelies.  I’m a dirty mainlander.  This is goddamn panbread.  Pancakes are cakes from a pan.  Panbread is bread from a goddamn pan!  Panbread!

 Ahem.  Hopefully it’s thawed out by now.  I will now depart on my journey of delicious proportions (I might even put on a shirt first) and return in a few moment (though you wouldn’t know, silly little people living in this silly little box).

I have returned.

No, I didn’t put on a shirt until just now.

Okay, so… Got the shit together: a few mushrooms, some artichoke hearts, a couple of sliced Kalamata olives (“SLICED?! You lazy assbag!” “It was all Coleman’s had, yo!” “Fine… Slut”), and beer.

Throw all that jazz all up in Blenderella’s face…

 

 …process…

 …and HOLY SHIT, WHAT IS IT?  It looks like a zombie shit out some brains and black mold (‘cause zombies like mold too; gotta maintain a healthy die-t)!  Alright, alright, fine; now let’s put it in a jar for effect…

 …fry up some panbread…

 

 …and shove dat in ma gaping hole!

This is the first thing I’ve eaten today and I have the slightest hint of a hangover so it better be good.  …and it is!  A little bland (how the fuck is it bland!? MUSHROOMS, OLIVES, ARTI HEARTS, AND BEER!) so I topped one of my panbreads with FGP (freshly ground pepper) and nutritional yeast (or as my friend Katy delightfully calls it: yeas.

 Another successful concoction.  Tomorrow… well, I’ll make something and likely talk about the complicated scientific methods I use when creating recipes and measuring ingredients.

'til next time,
