@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) I had a salted caramel milkshake, which did not hurt my enjoyment of the evening. But seriously, it was the sweetest movie I've seen in ages (and even a bit surprising/suspenseful) and I've been telling everyone to check it out.
In the spirit of tiny pick me ups: I saw Big Hero 6 last night, and it was incredibly sweet! I laughed/cried. It was lovely.
@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) Ooh yes, agreed.

That last one is perfect! The mix of yogurt and lettuce gives me the shivers, but the artistry is undeniable.

@Claire Lovell Child food double takes are the most precious. This one, for example, never gets old...
Hmm, I inserted a gif, but that didn't work so here's the link: http://whatshouldwecallgradschool.tumblr.com/post/98745760076/when-someones-presentation-makes-no-sense

@chrysopoeia Aww yess. I might even be moved to purchase the things those commercials were selling.
@Lisa Frank Then you'll love the update: "*Update: A publicist from Nickelodeon reached out to confirm that “yes, Clarissa was a HUGE hit, massive.”" http://flavorwire.com/480990/pete-pete-was-all-white-people-slimed-author-mathew-klickstein-on-why-ren-and-stimpy-was-better-than-clarissa-and-nickelodeons-diversity-problem [added at the very bottom]
@adorable-eggplant Ok, mysteries of the universe: I got a notification for a comment and it hasn't appeared, but it was a request for the recipe, which I am happy to give.
It's a bunch of cloves of garlic. At least three, but honestly it was probably closer to six. Peeled and mashed, but it's gonna be blended, so don't worry about being thorough. And ginger, a healthy sized nubbin, peeled and chopped (haha, ok more work than I remembered, but you're basically done now). And 2 sweet potatoes, cut into chunks (not peeled tho). Put all that in a crock pot, pour in a carton of vegetable stock. Add a can of chiles in adobo sauce and several spoonfuls of chunky peanut butter. After it cooks for ages, blend it or mash up the sweet potatoes with a fork and stir well. That's the recipe. Bonus, the whole house smelled lovely.
Also, if anyone wants to chat slowcooker, hit me up! I made sweet potato/peanut/chili in adobo sauce soup and it was so good that words cannot express. And the only actual work involved was chopping 3 small sweet potatoes into chunks. And I'm going to cut that down to 2 small sweet potatoes next time. Get a slowcooker everyone. Dooo it.
