Today I did a little tidying up. I found one (1) sheqel and 25 pesetas.

Look out, Bill Gates, here I come!

As much as I don't like cooking (and I kind of suck at it, too), I adore baking and pastries-making. I guess it's just the way things roll, beginning with me if I make too much.

Anyway, [livejournal.com profile] fiefsflee asked for a recipe for truffles earlier, and I gave her my favorite one. And after sending that reply, I though of another good one. And another.
And then I though 'screw this, Imma make a post about chocolate'.

And so, lo and behold, a post about chocolatey things:


You'll have to embrace the metric system, though. )

So yeah...

HEY KAIFACE, IS THAT ENOUGH FOR YOU if not just tell me and I'll try to think of something else.

Or, you know, you could just ignore this altogether. =D


Nota bene: Some people prefer using couverture instead of simple chocolate, when they make truffles. I myself just can't be bothered. =D

"Saint Young Men" MANGA SUMMARY:


What if Jesus and Buddha were living on Earth in modern times? What if they shared an apartment in Japan? Saint Young Men is a humorous manga about the daily lives of Jesus and Buddha, with each chapter focusing on some element of modern life, such as Disneyland, rush hour on the train, Christmas, the public pool, carnivals, and more.



OH JAPAN! you make the crackiest stuff EVER, sometimes.

I know, I know, me again, but... but... THIS:

Guys, I just read something about one of the lulziest people ever: Samuel P. Langley.
Not only did he appoint himself as a curator of an exhibition-room he created, but he also wrote a letter to himself accepting the position.

Just, look at this. I mean, come on:


The secretary of the Smithsonian [that's Langley] has been pleased to confer upon me [that's Langley, too] the honorable but arduous duties of the care of the Children's Room. He has at his service so many men learned in Natural History that I do not know why he has chosen me.
It has been my purpose to earn his trust and to carry out what I believe to be his intention[...]




I think this man is one of my favorite dead people, now. And look at him! He totally has 'lulz' written all over him.

*swoons*

*dies*

More for me, but it's really worth watching. I got the sudden urge to get up at the end for the standing ovation, despite sitting behind a computer screen.



Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch (Oct. 23, 1960 - July 25, 2008) gave his last lecture at the university Sept. 18, 2007, before a packed McConomy Auditorium. In his moving presentation, "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams," Pausch talked about his lessons learned and gave advice to students on how to achieve their own career and personal goals.

I think I just found the most beautiful sentence in the midst of a very boring book:

"'Word and image' has become something of a hot topic in contemporary art history, largely because of what are often seen as invasions of the visual arts by literary theory.[...]
Not surprisingly, the border police are on the alert to protect the territory of art history from colonization by literary imperialism."
- W.J.T Mitchell, 'Word and Image', in Critical Terms for Art History-


'Literary imperialism'. Heee. ♥


...

Ok, did I just reach a new level of 'nerd'?

On the other hand, the fact that I actually noticed some irregularities in the pattern of my parquet while 'reading' the book just shows how boring some parts of it are.
Yes.

Hah!

I put off watering the garden for so long, and now there's a big rain-shower pouring down and drowning everything.


All hail the God Of Lazyness!

I just woke up with a spider in my hair. A spider. In my hair. A spider in my hair!

The flailing, she was intense and totally undignified.
