@special_boots I know! I always wonder what these people who write articles praising early birds would have to say about my night owl-ness - my ability to fall asleep is so inflexible that i can either fall asleep at 3 or 4 in the morning depending on whether it's daylight savings time or not. yes i have tried everything besides tranquilizers to change this, yes it sucks when i have to get up at 6 for work, but i just cannot physically fall asleep before then.
@mc coolfriend yikes i totally may or may not have seduced a guy by showing him some of my etchings, once upon a time. i'm channeling some 18th century printmaking pickup artist and i didn't even realize it, haha.
(oh and an etching is an image made by making indentations in a metal plate with acid that will hold ink. then the inky plate is pressed into paper using a printing press to make a print)
@HeyMatilda yay! i've been there. i vaguely remember them being weird about the admission 'donation'
@rosaline my friend stole a bone from an ossuary somewhere in europe and somehow got it through customs into canada. i touched it, not knowing it was real. then he put the bone in an art show. freaky stuff!
@aphrabean not sure if this will work out of context of my book's recipes, but i have an allergen free cookbook that uses brown rice flour, tapioca flour and potato starch (2:1:1 ratio roughly) with a tsp of xantham gum per 2 cups to take the place of gluten.
@tandemkas oh dear i did that to my boyfriend who is not as avid a beet eater as i am, haha. i don't get that unless i eat beets for 2 days straight so it didn't occur to me that its a thing that happens to people... but once, i made delicious borscht and we gorged ourselves on it. later, he came out of the bathroom all pale and was like "can you pee beets?" and i felt so bad because he thought he was near death or something.
@whateverlolawants I WAS MESSAGED BY THAT GUY TOO. it was weird and he got abnormally upset when i asked him what exactly he meant by that.
@whateverlolawants when that happened to me, i would just set my profile to invisible and creep away! am i bad?
@JessicaLovejoy how many times do i have to tell you!?
@Elsajeni we did the same thing... but anonymous. to be fair, if i remember right, a student presentation sprung it on the class so the teacher wasn't really to blame in my case.
