A Riddle Wrapped Up In An Enigma…A Delicious Enigma With Sour Cream

A friend recently sent me a link to an online quiz about “Demisexuality”, a term even I hadn’t heard of, and I’m STILL learning new shit where I work (re: GenderQueerPansexuality (AKA “Whore-hole”), etc.). I was familiar with Asexuality, which apparently Demisexuality falls under the same umbrella term (thus the flag shown here, being a shared one). If you know me, I am the first to say that I think all these spinoffs of simply GAY are a load. And don’t even get me started on the convoluted hot mess that is “GenderQueer”. I can’t even explain to anyone, to argue about it. It’s ridiculous. And for anyone reading this that wants to argue it, I stand my analysis, so save yourself some time and frustration. No one’s ‘learning’ anything here.

ANYWAY, the last thing I need is to be categorized as something that I’ll fuckin’ have to explain to someone, but I did find the Demisexuality Quiz, interesting, as well as the explanation of what Demisexuality actually is. A LOT of it rings true for me (I scored a 78% out of 100), but I’m not ready to even introduce the talking point at the moment. It’s easier just to say “I’m a loner, Dottie” and leave it at that.

And in case you’re wondering where the Sherlock image comes into play, it was one of the images that popped up during a Bing image search of the word “demisexual” and I thought it was both emo-riffic and cute, so I superimposed it over the Demisexual/Asexual “flag”. Now you know.

It’s a Hoot

I enjoy Pinterest, mostly on a visual level, since I don’t have the kind of time/talent some of these people do when it comes to crafts.

That said, a few months ago I stumbled across this totally simple little idea and thought it was very clever (and did I mention simple?). I made a few for Halloween, cut a few slots on the side, at the bottom, and had them “sitting” on an old branch I found in the backyard.

BUT NOW, I come across this image, completely randomly, whilst doing an image search for something completely unrelated: using them on a Christmas tree! How cute is that? Well, cute, if you like owls (which I do). Just thought I would share this with ya. I’m not including a How-To, because there’s really not much explanation needed: you just mash in the top (both sides) of an empty toilet paper roll, paint it and draw faces. Voila! Instant owl party!

My first purchase for the cooler weather; I almost hate to refer to it as “Winter” since we never really seem to have one, here in Texas. Purchased at Threadless.

Just a quick FYI for those interested. Today was markdowns at work and we marked down these glass, amethyst-colored knobs to just 98¢! If you’d like some, let me know and I’ll pick some up for you. Knobs are an easy and economical way to freshen-up the look of cabinets, furniture, etc.

Good Morning!

Basil Pasta Salad

12 ounces pasta (bow tie shown)
5 tablespoons butter (divided use)
1 teaspoon garlic, freshly chopped
1 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
1 1/4 finely grated cups parmesan cheese
2/3 cup finely grated Pecorino
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil

Bring water to boil in a large saucepan. Add pasta and cook, stirring occasionally until almost cooked. Drain reserving 3/4 cup cooked water.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter. Add pepper and cook until toasted, about 1 minute. Add water to skillet and bring to a simmer. Add pasta and remaining butter. Reduce heat and add cheese. Place in serving bowls and top with basil. Serves 4.

I came across this recipe in the newspaper a few weeks ago and tried it out because it was so simple. It turned out really well. I realize the accompanying photo doesn’t exactly match up with the ingredients, but it was as close as I could get. The recipe is already gone from the newspaper archives and I didn’t have the forethought to photograph the one I made. Enjoy!

It’s FREE Movie Night at RedBox!

Yep, you read correctly. It’s FREE movie night, thanks to RedBox! Just visit their page on Facebook, ‘like’ them and get your code for a FREE movie rental. I’ve already got my code (J76R773), but as you know, all codes are good for multiple uses* (it’s all about the credit/debit card), so if you decide to get a code, feel free to share it here. If we’re friends on Facebook, I’ve most-likely already sent you a code (you can do the same via the RedBox Facebook page). Enjoy, and let me know what you wanna rent and/or rented! (I rented Dylan Dog and Take Me Home Tonight)

* NORMALLY, it’s been my experience that codes have been reusable, when using different credit/debit cards. HOWEVER, I went to the ‘Free RedBox Codes‘ site and copied several recent code posts (LOTS made on the 24th, I have to assume due to the ‘Free Movie Night’ promo) and they did NOT work. Either RedBox has caught their error or I’m just unlucky. Fyi.
