I created/helped create this thing called Character Solidifying Sunday and as such sometimes I talk a little too much about my characters.
[Regrettably from cause of snow and frost, we find that of you are sadly lost.]
how do you say ‘please talk to me more i crave your company’ to someone without sounding like a creep
(mad scientist cook anon) its funny you mention it, because i dont like sleeping when its super warm, so i tend to wiggle out from under blankets and stay close to the wall. it is soothing to me just to sleep in the same general area as another being
Anonymous asked you:
(same anon) physical contact not required, just an option if ever needed. :) ethnic food stores sound great, i actually know my way around them! and could pick out good things to experiment with
Can I just say that I love that you call yourself the mad scientist cook anon?
I live in a high altitude desert; snows most of the year round and the only natural plants here are of the conifer variety. But a forty minute drive takes you to Saint George where it’s drastically lower and it’s all sandy and has effin palm trees and maybe will snow once a year if circumstances are odd. My only housemate is from St. George and so they’ll always cRANK UP THE HEAT AND I CAN’T SLEEP WHEN IT’S LIKE HOTTER THAN 60 DEGREES SO I’LL BE PRESSED UP AGAINST THE WALL TOO WITH WINDOWS OPEN AND I’LL USUALLY GO THROUGH A PROCESS OF STRIPPING OUT OF MY PAJAMAS BEFORE I ACTUALLY FALL ASLEEP.
Yeah, good times.
And gosh, I DON’T know my way around ethnic food stores (I wish there were more here so I could learn) so I’d absolutely love going to some with someone more knowledgeable than I. I think that’d be the coolest thing ever.
do you normally jump ditches? its not really safe to do if you haven't practiced and i wouldnt advise it
Haha, thanks. Yeah, I do occasionally. Just screwed up today.
i don’t know what to say about the current situation in Venezuela,
nor have i known what to say about the ongoing socioeconomic catastrophe that its been. This has deeply effected me my entire life and 8 years ago my father was literally thrown out of Venezuela by Chavez for expressing his views.
my mother is in Caracas and this is what she just told me :
“the meat is all rotting and the shelves are completely empty at the supermarket…..its like a ghost town but instead of empty and quiet it’s swollen with fear and tension, i tried to go for a walk but got so scared i had to run back home……”
I’ve been asking her what she thinks i should do, how can i possibly help?
with the passing of Simon Diaz it seems one of the last of the cultural lights has gone out, at least in terms of someone with a voice that would be heard through the established channels and by the majority of the population.
I still can’t even talk about Simon, I’ve just been listening to his music day and night, i can’t talk about him and how much he MEANS to me, how brilliant a writer, singer, comedian, everything he was…so important to me…somehow it was easier to talk to friends and family about my grandfather, who passed two days after Simon in Caracas , than its been to utter a word about Tio Simon….
the Channels of communication that remain, (and don’t think that the police state government of Venezuela hasn’t tried to shut that down either) are this, forums/blogs/facebook/twitter and every other web based outlet.
from what my cousin has shared with me what’s really frightening is that its the MAJORITY that’s speaking up, and its the minority that’s suppressing them at all costs.
hired thugs are beating anyone that MIGHT speak out and murdering anyone that does…..
“may my sons death not be in vain” reads a blanket hanging from a balcony building in Caracas.
the world is watching and my only hope is that if more and more people speak up , share their ideas , just include the WORD Venezuela in whatever their dialogue or discussion may be it might speed up the involvement of the world press and the UN/US.
this isn’t about politics (which i know almost nothing about ) its about HUMAN RIGHTS.
The only reason i’m really writing this is in the hopes that maybe one person in Venezuela reads this and I’m writing this in english in the hopes that maybe one person NOT in Venezuela reads this.
Everything i’m writing down right now is not thought out, my heart is pounding and head is racing after the conversation i just had with my mother, picturing her there, alone, in the heart of the city.
i should probably wait, calm down, compose myself, but there is no time.
Please reach out to anyone you know who is in Venezuela, find out what’s really happening and ask how you think you can help.
Thank you for reading this,
Devendra just shared this heartbreaking letter on his Facebook.
There are so many terrible, terrifying things happening all over the world today, and I feel so helpless. Everyone around me surrounds themselves with distractions, but it never feels quite right…
On the way home from paying rent I tried to jump a ditch with my bike. Not only was I unsuccessful in this attempt, but I fell into a creek and managed to both scrape myself up somethin fierce and lose my bike lock.
So, that sure was a thing.
I'm in my early twenties, genderfluid, and i like to have crazy colored hair. I am not skinny, but i don't mind too much. life is too short not to eat all the food that looks appealing to me. In the kitchen I'm a bit of a mad scientist! I like to cook and try new cooking techniques but i can never guarantee what i make is gonna be any good. I'm told i give very good hugs, make a good pillow and am very comfortable to share a bed with. I can't help but provide biting commentary during any movies.
Haha, our cooking styles sound very similar! On the off chance you’ve never heard of it, you should check out supercook.com. It’s a site where you put in ingredients you have and it pulls up lists of recipes based on what you put in! It’s pretty great for starving college students in general who might not have a lot of ingredients, but also for kitchen experimenters like us who want to find new and interesting things to make.
I think for a date it would be really fun to go somewhere that has non-grocery-store ingredients (perhaps an ethnic food store?) and buy ingredients we’ve never heard of that sound delicious and/or interesting, and then spend time finding out how to properly cook these items and find out what we do or do not like.
I give the opposite of good hugs; I get very tense and nervous and never know where the heck my arms are supposed to go, but I would not mind receiving one of your good hugs. I’m also not the best at extended physical contact and get frustrated sharing beds with others (I like a distinct coldness that tends to be interrupted while sharing another’s body heat, as well as feeling clustered and closed in and anxious sharing that sort of space with someone), SO I’M REALLY SORRY BUT I’D PROBABLY BE A POOR DATE PARTNER IN THOSE ASPECTS. I’d try for you, if those were things you wanted to share together, but chances are high that I’d make it uncomfortable and awkward.
TL, DR; WOULD DATE. PARTICULARLY IF THERE WAS EMPHASIS ON EXPERIMENTAL COOKING.
Also I’d love to see your hair.
seriously holy crap
ALL OF YOU HAVE LIKE RAISED MY CONFIDENCE TENFOLD AND
there’s this guy in my class that literally dresses in 1950s rockabilly fashion every day and i used to have a baby crush on him. the crush passed about a year ago and since then i’ve been able to talk to him without an element of panic
and today i was thinking about dates and how much fun all the things you folk talked about last night sounded and that i think some of my own date ideas sound fun; and like, he’s the only individual i can think of that i could ask in person to go on a date with me
SO THROUGH ALL OF CLASS I KEPT THINKING OF ASKING HIM ON A DATE (it was usually something kind of lame like ‘hey wanna listen to rock and roll and discuss romantic and victorian poets from class’) which i dismissed thinking ‘i’d be way too nervous to actually do that’
and walking out of the classroom at the end, even though i didn’t ask him out on a date, i was like, WHAT THE HELL. I CAN AT LEAST TALK TO HIM. WHAT’S THE WORST THAT COULD HAPPEN.
(the worst that happened was that i got my serious face on so i kind of looked like i was glaring through the entire conversation) so i turned around over dramatically was like “Hey, Devon.” and he looked mildly concerned/afraid (probably because of aforementioned glare) but asked what, and I continued almost angrily, “I really like your style.”
(appear to be angry in both glare and tone with your crush? it makes you 100% more attractive? i have a phd in romanceling.)
BUT THEN WE ACTUALLY ENDED UP TALKING ABOUT ROCKABILLY AND ROCK AND ROLL SO
THAT WAS COOL.
I KNOW THIS IS LITERALLY A POST JUST ANNOUNCING THAT I HAD AN OUT LOUD TALKING CONVERSATION WITH ANOTHER HUMAN BEING, BUT YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW PHENOMENAL THAT IS FOR ME.
Okay, that’s currently the last of the would-I-date-you asks I have. If I didn’t answer it, I didn’t get it. AND FEEL FREE TO SEND ME MORE. DESPITE THIS RAISING MY LONGING TO DATE EXPONENTIALLY, THESE ARE REALLY FUN TO ANSWER. But for now I really need to head to bed.
22, female, 5'short-as-hell, with the fanciest and most noble hair color known to man: brownish. I like writing and drawing and RPing and really late sleep-deprived-loopy Skypecalls for the sheer giggles. I probably wouldn't be able to decide whether to take you to a dressy restaurant for the evening, or just loaf on the couch watching cheesy movies and prying into your OCs -- I'd let you pick, or flip a coin or something. Or decide by swordfight with plastic figurines.
I REALLY LIKE BROWN AND VARIOUS SHADES OF BROWN I’LL HAVE YOU KNOW. I’m actually pretty sure that everyone I’ve been attracted to in person/offline has had brown or brownish hair, huh.
It might take longer, but I don’t see why we couldn’t do both.We could first dress up real nice and go somewhere fancy (I think it’d be cool to do both a concert and a dressy restaurant) and act super prim and proper together, then afterwards get in like super comfy clothes (t-shirts and pajama pants level of comfy) where we could lounge around and discuss characters. Possibly make a blanket pile where we could lounge against each other and keep talking until we’re too tired to talk anymore and start drifting off. And then have weird dreams involving the character stuff we were talking about last.
Also I’m really bad at rping and I think it causes less stress and plot problems for other people if I keep my unreliable rping to myself, but oddly enough that’s not the case when I’m physically with someone? Like I can rp on paper alright and keep up with it pretty dang well; I tend to not suddenly drop out or have a crippling fear that every single word I say is stupid (might be related to the fact that I can see how my rp partner is reacting?) or forget which makes it nice. So even though I’ve stopped saying yes to rps online, if you were into that sort of thing, I’d love to rp in person with you.
Also even if we decided to do both date ideas, swordfighting with plastic figurines sounds FANTASTIC.
WOULD DEFINITELY DATE. OR JUST HANG OUT. WHATEVER YOU’D WANT.
I'm older than you, sonny. But, I'm 5'1'' and I'd be a liar if I said I ain't a lil' on the round side if you get what I mean. I love to paint, draw, and bake. Hopin' one day I can get a bakery of my own. As for the date, I love cookin' for people so you could come on over and I'd make you a nice dinner and maybe we could watch a nice lil' movie, but I ain't too picky where we'd go, I guess. As long as it isn't any of that fancy shit.
Oh my, you certainly sound like someone who would make a date fun.
For you, I’d wear a suit. Not to be fancy, but because I have an odd and mysterious feeling that you like the look of suits on others. I think it’d be fun to go on a tour of several different bakeries (we could pretend we’re professional food critics) and critique various foods we came across. I’d love to hear all about the plans you have for your own bakery—what kind of building you’d like to have, what kind of set up it’d be, what sort of items you’d like to provide.
I think if you wanted to cook for me (which I’m totally cool with, but would also like to cook with you if you were alright with that) and see a movie, it’d be cool (especially if it were on a warm summer night with minimal bugs) to rent a projector, so we could eat outside on a blanket with a movie being projected onto a side of a house or something. I think that’d help take the formality and ‘fancy shit’ out of a date and make it a bit more cozy, homey, and fun.
I would definitely go on a date with you.
