I learned about the cone snail today and I am never going to the beach again.

FIFTY NANOGRAMS PER KILOGRAM HAS A 50% CHANCE OF KILLING YOU. A 220-POUND HUMAN HAS A 50% CHANCE OF SURVIVAL AGAINST JUST 5 MICROGRAMS OF CONOTOXIN. 

I DID SOME MATH. 

IT WOULD TAKE 7-9 MILLIGRAMS OF CONOTOXIN TO KILL A BLUE WHALE, THE HEAVIEST ANIMAL TO EVER LIVE.

Happy late birthday Nigel!


I am also not dead. It's actually the hard drive that's borked. -shrug-

My copy of Windows broke itself. Directly after doing a reset install, too. I am so sick of Windows and all its bullshit, and I can't afford a copy of Mac, so Linux it is! ADVENTURE!

How are computers so exhausting I just spent 12 hours struggling to get this shitty laptop working, which included the last few hours doing a factory reset and putting Chrome on. I shouldn't be this tired, it's just basically waiting around for shit to happen.

Thinking about going to a tech college and getting my AAS in Machining.

I read this as "getting my ASS in machining."

HAM CARAMEL

1 stick of butter, salted
brown sugar, some
honey, a little
lemon juice, a little

Melt butter. Throw everything else in. Stir stir stir stir stir stir stir don't let that shit burn. When it smells like it might start to burn, remove from heat. Either pour over a ham as a glaze (and bake for like 15 minutes) or let it cool some, shape it into cubes or balls or what have you and put in the fridge.

Enjoy either your ham or your caramel, or both, fuckit, there's plenty of mixture.

Just a quick note, it ended up being 25 minutes (but the center were warm and not hot, and the mushrooms in the center were underdone) so maybe do these at 350F for 30 minutes and then hit it with the braise setting for another five minutes to get teh bread crumbs nice and brown and crispy.

I would eat like 500 of these.

I saulte you, I was only able to eat one before it was too much for me.

Sounds like an edible food! You can leave the gills in, and just a gentle rinse is good. The stems you can probably chop up and put in the mix or add to the bread crumbs topping.

I'll remember that for next time! :)

Stuffed Mushroom Dinner

5 Portobello Mushrooms
2 1/4 cups imitation crab, finely chopped
1 cup cream cheese
1 cup finely chopped parsley
1 cup chopped green onions
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1 lb bacon slices
bread crumbs

1. Remove stem from mushroom. Realize you have no idea how to clean a mushroom. Maybe if you stick it under water...? Okay it's peeling, is that supposed to happen? What are you supposed to do with the fluting? You guess you'll just remove it...?

2. Dump the block of room temp cream cheese in. Remove parself leaves from stems. Gosh, this is taking a while, maybe my fingers are not the most efficient, but how do you get rid of the stems otherwise? Okay, good, now do the green onions. Now the crab, and the cheese. Okay, now mix it all together. Realize that you probably should have smashed the cream cheese a bit, to make it easier to work. Oh well, it's fine, you're sure.

2.5. Pour some oil over the mushroom caps, which will be the bottom. I bet olive oil would be nice.

3. Fill the mushrooms with the mix.

4. Wrap the mushrooms in enough slices of bacon to cover the tops, folding the bacon over itself on the bottom, like you're wrapping a bow the wrong way around.

5. Shit, you forgot the bread crumbs AND to preheat the oven. Well, preheat to 375F, you guess. And, uh, sprinkle the bread crumbs over the bacon generously. Whatever, it'll be fine.

6. Having already put the mushrooms on a cookie sheet, slide those tasty treats in the oven and wait. Check after 20 minutes, then check in 5 minute intervals until done because this is the first time you've done this and you made it up and they're not done cooking but you don't want to forget how you made it so you're writing the recipe NOW.

7. Enjoy the hell out of it, hopefully.

I'm so frustrated right now.

So we got kittens, right, two of them. They are adorable and me and the boy both love them. However, the boy is interested mostly in doing whatever entertains him, and I've had to discuss how cats need respect and gentleness even more than dogs do, because they're slightly more likely to bite and scratch and they won't like being abused. Today I found the boy had put my kitten in a tall laundry hamper and put a puzzle flannel over it so he couldn't get out. I grounded him to his room for the rest of today.

I've been really trying to never resort to the "Because I said so," reasoning that my folks used on me to explain why it's fair to ground him, and explain what isn't fair (torment the cats, disrespect boundaries, so on and so forth), but he still doesn't get it and I'm so  :argh!:

First world problems, right?

That's hard. How old is he now? Sometimes it just takes a few years for empathy to develop.

He's 9. I'm hoping that it's just slow to develop, too.

There was also an incident today involving him and the same kitten. He says he just dropped him on accident, but Munkustrap can't put any weight on his leg and when I touch his knee he growls and shouts at me. Vet tomorrow, and my mom is already treating me like shit because it needs doing.

Have you had him assessed for developmental delays?

I don't think so, but I think I will soon.

I'm trying to think of something more inadvertently despicable than encouraging a person with an untreated mental illness to ignore all those people out there trying to gaslight them.

What? That sounds... something.


Also, Munkustrap is doing okay. The vet said there's some swelling and bruising in his knee and ankle, but nothing seems outrageously wrong, so they gave  him an anti-inflammatory shot and sent us home with some oral pain meds. If he doesn't get better we have to go get x-rays, bt for now things look good.

Nope. I take anti-depressants. The coherency was unexpected, though, never had it happen before.
