Does anyone have a favorite recipe for rice pudding where the rice is previously cooked?  For some unknown reason I ended up with a lot of leftover rice from dinner tonight -- way more than just "eat it for lunch" leftovers.
 
My mom used to make it by gosh and by guess depending on how much rice she had left after supper, but she never bothered to pass on approximate rice / milk / egg / sugar / vanilla ratios.  I'd prefer a stove (cooker) -top version, since it's 97° F (36° C) outside at the mo' and I'd rather not turn on the oven.

...but boy did he ever this time: review of Brave on rogerebert.com.

I mean, he could have just not printed that last sentence, and I'd have nodded my head and just been forewarned that Pixar had gone all Disney on us with the storyline.  But with twenty little words, Ebert outs himself as a doddering old sexist, cis-privileged jerk.
 
Yo, Rog -- you'll probably be the first person on the planet with a keyboard-to-speech device that speaks in your very own (previously-recorded) voice.  Drag your damn' mind into the 21st century along with it, eh?

Summer!

Fireflies!  Yes, I was out in my back yard chasing them at dusk.
 
Peaches!  The local ones are in, and soooo juicy.
 
Sweet corn!  Our favorite truck farm says they'll be picking in another week or so.  The early heat was bad for the cabbage and other cool-weather crops, but means the corn ripened early.

A Poem

Roses are red,
Violets are not,
My husband gave me his cold
and took all the good drugs to work in his briefcase.

Whatever solstice-y type holiday you and yours celebrate, I wish you happy and merry with plenty of tastiness to have and to share, and the inner peace not to harm any relatives who attempt to climb up your nose.

If your topmost post has four funky boxes at the bottom and the security level has been changed, you've been hit by the flashcode somebody used to mess up LJ.

It's an easy fix:
  1. Edit the entry.
  2. Swap over to HTML if you usually use Rich Text.
  3. Delete the code.
  4. Don't forget to change the security setting (down there at the bottom where it says "Show this entry to:") back to what it was originally, because it will have been changed to "Everyone".
  5. Save.

Computer started acting up again yesterday.  Don't know how long I'll have it  up before it dies today.  Taking it to Apple store this afternoon.  Can't keep it up long enough to back up, or see the next ep of TW, or anything fun.  Argh.

My apologies to everybody who has commented on fics, etc. about not getting back to them.  Sorry.  And you Pros lot -- yes, I know, you're waiting for Bodie to be ok.  It's alright, I swear.

Because I was asked:

This tutorial presumes that you're using one of LJ's journal styles, and that you're not in the CSS customizing your LJ. This also presumes you know what a URL is and how to determine the URL of an online image. If you don't, contact me.

That is all.

Hat tip to [personal profile] youngwilliam ...

Neil Gaiman goes all fanboi at his blog over meeting John Simm at the European premier of Stardust.   Turns out the two of them had a willie-waving contest right there over who had been whose ardent admirer longer...
