@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that)

Soccer started up on Saturday. The Sounders are still a good team but the Clink was kind of a swimming pool so nobody looked good.

Pretty sure How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days really was the beginning of the end though.

Also that sober sex article did nothing to shake my lingering suspicion that sex is actually impossible and you're all just lying to me when you talk about it.

Super late to this party but: I just finished season 2 of House of Cards and I just can't shake the feeling of "why am I watching this"

The sheer effectiveness of Underwood leaves me feeling cheated the same way Sherlock Holmes stories do. There's no one to root for (that I can assume will survive). And it's not even all that heroic or epic in scope.

It feels like an exercise in putting Spacey on camera.

I mean I know why I'm watching it: it's acted to within an inch of it's life by the entire cast. But even then it feels so Master Thespian sometimes.

I think I'm out.

@coolallison Oh christ that's right. I got stuck on the 280 flyover on Thursday and thought it was weird for traffic to be that heavy at almost 10. Uphill stop and go traffic in a manual is punishment for shoplifting in some countries.

@Miss Maszkerádi This is the blind leading the blind here but: condoms are effective birth control and yes guys use them willingly and you should probably insist on them using one even if you are on hormonal birth control.

@OhMarie My brother was unaware that Pan's Labyrinth was rated R. He went in assuming it was a darkish kids movie.

Imagine his surprise.

@adorable-eggplant
I think I could do plantain easily enough if I tried again it was just that day I made a series of bad decisions in my attempt to cook the plantain.

@adorable-eggplant

-1 c + a healthy shake of potato flake
-1 c boiling water
wait a second to cool a little
-1 egg yolk
-1 c flour
-some salt or whatever

5 minutes and that includes boiling the water.

I've done sweet potato gnocchi + mole poblano once but I wasn't impressed with the brand of mole so I was a bit ambivalent towards the endeavor. I also tried but failed (to dry never bound right) to make plantain gnocchi but I think it's a good idea.
