callistra: Eric Carles' Very Hungry Caterpillar (A Very Hungry Caterpillar)

This, as far as I can remember, was the only good thing to come out of Beaches! (the movie.) I honestly don't remember anything else!

But I thought of it today while I wrestled with my kink_bingo prompts. I'm one square from a full line. I need to write something for Tech/Mech, and I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO WRITE! LOL. I can't believe I'm stymied on tech/mech of all the prompts.
:D
I've even done a bonus square, so I guess I have my second line started.

Anyway, I just felt like sharing 'Oh Industry." I find it incredibly powerful, even now.

Also, Chesh did some poking around, and all the vocals are from the same (female) artist. I was surprised!

Is an Assemblage 23 kind of day. (These are just the songs, the vid clips are simple a static photo.)

Here is a four meal rubber chicken...



Most people do it for three meals, so I am impressed with four. So, I thought I would try it out too, cos I am curious about these sorts of things.

So last night we had roast chicken. Unfortunately I slept too long, started it at 5, and despite following instructions it took 3 hours to cook, not two. So, V and J had other things for dinner, and it was just me and Chesh. But it was nice. I usually cook chickens in the microwave, so I am used to them being much more incredibly juicy, but it was good. I also ended up with a HUGE amount of gravy.

I put the bones in the slowcooker with some mire poix and some lamb fatty offcuts I had been saving to make soup with, and it's been cooking now since last night. I will sort that out in a bit, and get the soup going.

So, the chicken used for this cost $16 (I think) yeah, it was expensive, but it was delivered and etc, and at that point during the month I needed it done that way. I bought a chicken today at size 23 for $12, which is much more my thing. That's for next weeks' experiment which will be Asian rubber chicken, and I will be making it up as I go along.

I have now sorted the meat and bones, discarded the veg and bones. I put the stock in the fridge and scraped off the oil when I could. I have now chopped up some fresh vegies and put in a soup pack of pulses and grains, added some salt and a bit of vegeta. So, one crockpot full of thoup merrily cooking away.

I have also got 6 x 100mL icecubes of unsalted stock in the freezer.

So... today's shop...Woolies; $51, Petrol $30, Cat bikkies $28.
French Loaf - $3.

Edited to add: (18th November)
Chicken has now gone through four adult sized sandwiches, 4 family sized servings (and that's adult family servings) of soup, and tonight we have casserole. I will freeze any left overs for the stir fry, which might end up being sweet and sour.

There are times I forget I am a fangirl.

There's so much going on in my life at the moment, and has been since V was born. Now there's V and J and also books 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and the rewrites of book 1, and the plan for the Nanobook, and and and and....  I forget what sometimes makes me passionate.

Tonight I returned to the arms of an old lover. Those of you who don't know who Depeche Mode are, here's the only version of their huge hit Just Can't Get Enough that I can actually bear to listen to. (It's the Schizo remix if you care.)

My favouritest ever song... well, ok, remix of a song.. I didn't actually expect to find on youtube...but I did. In Your Room, Jeep Rock Mix.  The first flirt...the first kiss...sweet summer music...warm winter music...and whimsical fancy :-)

LIstening to this... feeling the music flow like honey, smooth, slow, sweet, I remember all the reasons why I am who I am today, and what makes me Me.

I feel like I do when everything is running the way it should be again. The way it does when I'm not pregnant, or recovering from being pregnant. My energies are flowing. I am endlessly creative, the essential earth mother, an organizing freak and content.

I baked bread today, meal planned the week, cleaned the house, did the dishes, coloured in, drew pictures, read stories, chatted with friends, cooked lunch, cooked dinner, and wrote four thousand words. I gardened in the rain and welcomed to kiss of the sky.

This is how I should be. And this is how I am.

I gotta start some projects eventually...

This is just beautiful.


This just amused me. Perfect Day by all sorts of people, and David Bowie looking hot. I kind of would like to know who some of the people are so I could hunt down music by them, but... well, I have enough time sinks...

And finally... A Perfect Day Elise on Youtube (embedding disabled by request) by PJ Harvey.

Hmm. The cleaning is still looking at me. I swept it into a big pile right next to me. *sigh*

I made him watch this one and he said "I dare you send that to [livejournal.com profile] tiberius_n"

But I figured you should all enjoy kiddy TV



The opening scenes to the above pictured TV show are here:



Other things I turned up today...

I feel ... blah.
And here's the most beautiful and depressing song I know.
:-)



My God, HP has touched *everything* hasn't it??

This one was really really good! Harry/Lucius slash with great music, and Ai No Kusabi anime all slotted together... plus some nice effects with the footage from the movies.

This one is surprisingly good too even if there is no Lucius.
:-)

Hermoine and Ron and Draco thing

Although, even I will be honest and say I've not seen a Malfoy video I've hated yet...

I like this one too...

Chesh from the other room: Are you watching porn again?
Me: Nooo... it's not porn...
Chesh: It is the way you watch it.
Me: How rude. I shall pout.
