Proof of their zombification!

Oh, and *during* dinnertime conversation - [livejournal.com profile] selenite: "Eat the snake, Jamie!"

[livejournal.com profile] fordprfct and I went out for a longer ride today. We were out for an hour. Had to get back, as there's party going on now.

WHEEEEEEEE!

Weird phrase of the day: "I'm going to turn around and let you jack into my head."

I have various stuff to post, as I get to it today.

First - yesterday I had a moment of just absolute joy and beauty. Before [livejournal.com profile] fordprfct left last night, Maggie popped herself down in [livejournal.com profile] selenite's computer chair and asked to have her feet tickled. A moment later each guy had grabbed an ankle, and had her dangling upside down between them as they tickled the soles of her feet and she shrieked in glee. It was lovely. Jamie came up and said "MY TURN!" and first they let him help tickle her feet, and then they set her down and upended him. Wheee. Kids are such fun.

Also, two comics that are just marvelous today:

Today's XKCD makes me giggle

I know and agree with Angela's feeling - oh yeah. I'm a lucky woman.

Before I get around to chronicling the fun that was ApolloCon, I realize I never got around to posting about last Wednesday, and our experiments in hot oil.

No, no, not like that. We were over for our usual Wednesday night movie night at [livejournal.com profile] fordprfct and [livejournal.com profile] kattelyn's house, and had decided to try to make funnel cake. I had funnel cake mix and powdered sugar, and they had a deep frying pan and a funnel-tipped plastic pitcher. And we all like funnel cake, so we decided to give it a try.

They also had a candy thermometer, so [livejournal.com profile] fordprfct decided to use that to judge the heat of the oil. It kept saying it wasn't hot enough, not enough, not enough - and we were letting it heat up as we watched more of the Dr. Who we're trying to catch up on. Eventually [livejournal.com profile] kattelyn and I started saying that it smelled too hot and was getting too smoky, and we got it turned down. [livejournal.com profile] fordprfct even moved it off the burner for a while - spilling a bit of oil onto the glass stovetop, where it caught on fire. That was briefly exciting.

We finally thought maybe it was cool enough, and tried making one. Um. No. We quickly got a black burned mass, very quickly indeed. I commented that it looked like some kinda dead squid/octopus alien embryo special effect we'd expect to see on Dr. Who rather than in the kitchen. And the thermometer was still insisting it wasn't warm enough. The thermometer lies.

We kept letting it cool and trying just a tiny bit at a time, and eventually got well, funnel cakes. [livejournal.com profile] kattelyn did one that was way better than mine, but I intend to keep getting better at it too. It was yummy, and the funnel pitcher they have was perfect. I intend to get more mix sometime, and I expect I'll definitely be making it over in their kitchen when they're willing to put up with it.

Sushi

So last night I finally tried sushi. We went out to have dinner at Tokyo Steakhouse, where we'd eaten before, but in addition to the table-cooked stuff, got sushi appetizers. Two kinds, tuna rolls and a salmon sushi thing. I was feeling experimental. I had expected to stay far away from the wasabi, but Miles mixed a very small amount of it in with a lot of soy sauce, and had me try that. That was okay, just like really intense soy sauce. With the tuna roll, I didn't like the taste or texture of the seaweed, and didn't like the taste of the raw tuna. Just had one bit of those. For the salmon, the taste was okay, but the texture wasn't something I liked. I tried the whole thing, and I did like it better with the wasabi-soy sauce mixture, but I did eventually decide, no, I don't care for it.

But I tried it!

Now if I can just get him to do it again.

(grinning and running, but I expect there's no escape!)

Yesterday was in general an excellent day.

After Adventure Club and church last night went over to [livejournal.com profile] fordprfct and [livejournal.com profile] kattelyn's place for Movie Night. Jacob was there too. Had a nice meal and watched "Rosenkranz and Guildenstern are Dead", which I'd never seen before. That... was literarily bizarre and really cool. The questions scene on the badminton court and the scene with Polonius and the arras were just marvelous! We were almost MST3King parts of it - others we couldn't, they were doing it for us!

A good evening with wonderful company. Purrr.

I just want to say that Wednesday, January 25 was a good day. In fact, it was pretty much a perfect day.

Not that many of those come along. It's important to notice when they do.

This was one. It was wonderful. I'm glad.

And now I'm very very sleepy. Goodnight.
