So I bought some broccoli, which I intended to steam, but, nah, it'll end up in the garbage.

No no no. Forget about steaming if you have to throw it and it came fresh not frozen. Instead clean it well and eat it raw with other salad after cutting it a bit smaller pieces. I promise its 100 times tastier and fun. Now of course steaming with rice and whatever else is doable too but i also dont like the end taste unless you put olive oil and lemon to it or cheese and ham in the oven or whatever souffle like. Raw with salad beats all those other ideas so far though. I was shocked to find out some time ago that i can avoid the bad dull taste this way. But it has to be fresh.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

Clean the broccoli? Eat it raw w/o ranch? lol@you. And me.

------------------------

In other news mom does not watch TV in her bedroom opting instead for DVD's playing 20+hrs/day which wears the damn things out quick. BTW, she watches Titanic at least 5 times/day and it's turned up loud so I have to listen to all of the screaming from the dying ppl while I'm trying to relax in my massage chair after loading up on Xanax, a shot of whiskey, and a bowl of weed (I've got a med card so don't preach) which takes away from the experience but that's my life and you're welcome to it.

Since she wore out the old DVD player today I went to Target and they had two of the ones she uses @$100 each. I put them both in the cart and asked the pimple Target kid if they had any more in the back room bec I would've bought two more. He gives me the 'wtf do you need more than one for look' and I explain that I need more than one player in case mom wants to watch a movie more than once. Let me tell you, there are few things in life worse than a joke you have to explain.

I get home to set up the new DVD player only to find the remote's batteries are corroded, I go to my storage closet, all the spares are corroded, I think MOTHER****ER! I've got to go to the supermarket and get another pack of AAA's when I pass by a side table and see that there's a new pack right there along w/ AA's fwiw.

Tell me there is no God.

I disagree with Masque most of the time but he is exactly right here.

Welp, it's still in the bin. Maybe I'll eat it later instead of a jelly sandwich.

Great story by the way, a perfect kickstart for the weekend, drugs included.

And broccoli is a disgusting food item. I'll just refer everyone to Newman from Steinfeld

Godliness comes from Louisville? That’s great news. May as well come from everywhere if it can come from anywhere and nowhere.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

Walking in a park mid-spring, warmth, smell of flowers, colour unbounded, joy. Unexpected joy. 50 springs later - equally unexpected; equally disproportional. Pure, unadultareted JOY.

A moment.

Lost somewhere in between "I really need to find a toilet asap" and "why is that lady looking at me like I'm going to assault her?"

Clouded in the day-to-day.

God?

Clouded in the day-to-day.

They were busy arguing whether or not God exists while the dog sat there signaling they spelt it backwards, said the cat. A mocking bird laughed outside.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

Stole from Wiki:[Hack Writer]

A hack writer is a pejorative term for a writer who is paid to write low-quality, rushed articles or books "to order", often with a short deadline. In fiction-writing a hack writer is paid to quickly write sensational, "pulp" fiction such as "true crime" novels or "bodice ripping" paperbacks. In journalism, a hack writer is deemed to operate as a "mercenary" or "pen for hire", expressing their client's political opinions in pamphlets or newspaper articles. Hack writers are usually paid by the number of words in their book or article; as a result, hack writing has a reputation for quantity taking precedence over quality.


Sounds like most Limey writing to me. And it certainly does describe very well such magazines as Daily Star. And I love the term "Bodice Ripping". I'm sure it will soon be added to the list of non-useable words or phases on 2+2.

Now this is News:

dailystar.co.uk

In fact, just Nuke the entire UK. It is no longer needed. It has been superseded by the EU. Wankers all.

Hack writer seems to describe every writer ever that doesn't have the luxury or priviledge to spend 2 years on 1 piece of writing.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

Hackery is pretty illustrative word. Partial information does have to be hacked from more complete information to be like a hack job.

Not to be conflated with hacking a small part of a whole amount information to reflect the greater amount of information still available.

Hack is coming along as one of those words.

Someone tried to argue with me that they don’t care about words in a discussion about literacy in an unlikely space. I eventually yawned caringly about words.

Aha, some good Greek olive oil. Another gift from Greece to the world. Tastes good and is good for you. High five, Masque.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

Oh yeah thanks. My parents are actually right now back in Peloponnese collecting the product of the harvesting and processing from the tree to the oil container. Literally right now is the harvesting and processing to oil time. Takes only a couple days for all to happen. Pm me an address and i can send you some free if this year turns out to be top quality.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

This ad/documentary gives some general idea of what its like right now there.

Talk about patience to harvest the olives by the way (no wonder why most working are older looking).









(Without machines it's much harder and time consuming and it has been like that for centuries. Never participated in picking or the process in general, only watched it as kid, however i consume a lot of the final product even so far away from its origin, shame on me lol, thanks to mom and dad that still mail me every year or two. I get containers like those in the end of the next video thanks to all previous generations that took care of them, now long gone but not forgotten...)
