holdouttrout: not your ordinary fish (sam/thor)
If you're the kind of person who likes nearly impossible choices (but not necessarily impossible ones), then there's fun for you at the final round of [livejournal.com profile] sf_marchmadness today! It's Sam Carter versus Aeryn Sun--a very good matchup, indeed!

I am going to make carrot soup tonight, and I'm currently debating about adding the non-orange carrots I have to the mix. I think it might make it look disgusting, but I'm not sure. Thoughts?

My SG-1 rewatch is still going strong. I just finished 2010 this morning more nostalgia below )

I went and saw The Ugly Truth this weekend. Reading a review (any review, it seems) before I went would have saved me $9.75 and a lot of feminist rage--the more I think about the movie, the less I liked it. I'm not cutting that because I'm regarding this post as a PSA. If you want more detail, you should read this review by Sady Doyle at the Guardian, which says everything I would say if plagiarism weren't wrong.

HOWEVER, I saw it with a wonderful friend, and generally had a good night of CSI-watching and wheat-free food-eating!

*looks at mention of wheat-free food above and realizes she may not have said anything about it before*

So. My dad thinks he's allergic to wheat, and a couple of you online have said recently that you were, too, and so, in a moment of COMPLETE AND UTTER INSANITY I decided that, as an experiment in solidarity or culinary adventure or...well, I'm not exactly sure what, I would give up wheat for a month. I started about a week ago, and it's been hell. Or at least it was last week. If it hadn't been so hot, I could have cooked and it would be going much easier, I'm sure. Fact: you have to cook rice in order to eat it, and, unlike bread, rice mostly doesn't come ready-to-eat. Also, the rice bread looks scary and I think I'm refusing to try it.

Anyway, I discovered some good food already, and hope to make more things now that it is not 100 F in my kitchen.

I was productive this morning, and not only put several things on my hiveminder.com todo list, but also checked them off--including scheduling a service appointment for my car, ordering new contacts, and moving several "I must read" books from scattered lists to an excel file. If I ever read all the books on my lists, it'll be a miracle. Do you know that people keep writing new ones all the time? Astonishing.

I also actually saw last night's episode of Law and Order: Criminal Intent (LOCI), and now I can't actually remember much of it. I'm kinda meh on the whole thing except the characters, but TPTB just don't give me enough to really do anything with!

in which i talk about food and not-quite vegetarian options )

I'm not trying to be a vegetarian, exactly, but I am trying to move a little closer to that edge.

So...what about you? Favorite vegetarian foods/dishes, favorite ways to prepare veggies, thoughts about the whole thing?
