so i work at a retirement home and one of the residents heard me saying “mood” all the time and she asked what it meant and now she won’t stop saying it

another resident fell over and she was just like “mood”

I identify with this.

Mood.

i think… the only piece of media i know of that’s not specifically about autism with a main character on the spectrum is the new power rangers movie. the blue ranger specifically says he’s “on the spectrum” and it’s even a pretty accurate representation of an autistic person. also the movie was super fun and cheesy, just like you’d expect from power rangers.

simonalkenmayer:

I saw it. I agree

My one complaint is that he is injured during the film. It was unfair and easy. That he be the one to suffer.

The American Sherlock Holmes series has a female spectrum character I found intriguing, but in typical fashion, she disappears and we never hear of her again. I enjoyed “The Accountant” immensely.

So, a perfect steak is medium rare, which means the inside is very pink. So why is a perfect steak considered “manly”?

I mean, Men^TM do everything to prove they’re not even remotely feminine, but wouldn’t eating something pink be too feminine? Because of course genders have their assigned colors. So logically, Men^TM shouldn’t eat steak, unless it’s entirely well done (and ruined).

Also, bloody steak is totally the food of people who menstruate.

Dammit, now I’m hungry.

Me, too…

I dragged my house spouse out of their depression cocoon and to Mc Donalds.

Good!!!! I ate some chips… lol

I used my last unaccounted for 10 to eat cheap.  But like it was late and I hadn’t had dinner.  The kids had a fend for themselves night because Friday’s are weird because Luke has vision therapy and so the three of them eat at different times based on when they get hungry instead of the usual family dinner.  So I’m sitting here at like midnight wondering why I’m so hungry and then it hits me “duh”.  So I dragged Pat away from anime with the promise of food and now I’m fed and happy.

Omg! You have to eat, Kare!!! I’m glad you eventually did, though. Lol. 

Also, when I was a kid, the nights where we got to fend for ourselves for dinner were always my favorite. That was back when I liked ramen, so I’d make two packages of ramen and eat them both. It was great. XD

You two!!!
Damn, I’ve put a load of sausages in the oven and devoured half a pack of bacon to tide me over!!!
Sausages will be turned into sandwiches shortly, but all this food talk is making me look at the bacon grease in the frying pan…. some onion and new potatoes would be so good cooked in that.. *drools* shame I don’t have either in the cupboard.

Sorry not sorry!!! ❤

Feel free to send some sausages my way!

No.
I’m going to be petty. The sausages are mine I tell you! MINE!!! 😋

Fiiiiiiiine! I’ll just go make a salami sandwich, and I won’t share, either!!! lol 

Lol. Salami, you can keep it! Now, pastrami is a different story.

Nah, no pastrami here. I’m not a fan. Hubby is, but it’s expensive, so he doesn’t get it often. lol

I’m a recent convert. And yes it is so expensive it’s a fantasy shop item. Not that I get much of a look in! It’s meat. Hubby gets a bit like Joey in Friends when there are sandwich meats in the fridge!

Lol! Yeah, hubby and I buy separate sandwich meats. Right now, the cajun  chicken is his, and the salami is mine. Of course for us it’s mostly because of me. I’m picky, and I don’t share well. XD

See, we try doing this. I had some chicken tikka slices in the fridge – I like to get plain pizzas and put my own toppings on them – and they have mysteriously disappeared… same with the pastrami the last time we bought it, the last time I went to the butcher and got haslet, and the bacon today was from the third packet of four we bought last week and the only bacon I’ve had!!!
The guy has a problem.
That or he is the sandwich King.
He’s also the reason I have no onions left and need to buy more cheese!

OMG!!! You need to put a lock on your fridge!!! lol

🙂
I wouldnt do that to him. He doesn’t think about food until he’s starving and then he has no patience to wait for things to cook. If it takes longer than frying an egg or some bacon then it’s too long.
Its why I always make extra food when I cook a big meal – he can nuke it and my fridge is safe!
You should have seen him on our first Christmas! I did a leg of lamb and a chicken and he spent days walking around with the leg of lamb in his hand!
The chicken was picked clean too! I’m sure @simonalkenmayer would have approved.
No food waste in this house!

I am rubbing off on all of you.

The question is: is that a good thing or a bad thing???

I leave that to you.

Back to the original topic. To me the perfect steak is rare, not medium rare. Still oozing a bit of blood, nice and red inside. Cooked enough to kill germs and bacteria.

Which reminds me, I need to look up some basic marinade recipes now because my dear mother, who is always reluctant to give up the kitchen for fear I’ll make it explode (unless I’m baking, she admits I’m much better at baking than her) is going to let me do this week’s steaks from start to finish. Last week she just let me cook them but she did the marinade and seasoning. 

Huzzah!!!

You saw my post with my favorite inexpensive marinades, yes? I quite agree with you. Rare is best.

Sadly I missed that post. 😦 I googled some and found one that’s listed at 4 ½ stars out of 5, but I’m nervous about it. It was meant for a lot of steaks, not two, so we had to cut down on some of the seasonings or they’d be overly seasoned. We ran out of olive oil – mom and I really only like the California Brand olive oil, but lately we haven’t been able to find any in the stores (according to their site Mother’s and Sprouts both carry it but everything tends to be uber expensive in those stores and WalMart hasn’t had any in weeks) – and wouldn’t you know it, the first bag I put them in a bone poked through and part of the marinade spilled out! Wah! Plus I really didn’t care for the smell. 

I almost feel like I’d be better off using the pre-made stuff mom buys at Dollar Tree. (She used to make her own but as she’s gotten older she takes more shortcuts.) It’s not that it’s a bad marinade, truthfully, but I wanted to make my own from scratch and I’m not fond of teriyaki. Used to love it as a little girl but as I’ve gotten older I found myself preferring other flavors over it. 

I did use a meat hammer on the steaks lightly and a fork like mom does to get the flavor into the meat. I just pray it’s a good flavor.

I use A-1, Worcestershire sauce, salt, paper, wine, and a bit of hot sauce. Sometimes instead of that I’ll add ginger or brown sugar. Depends on the meat.

After marinating overnight, remove, pat dry, salt, and then cook.

(I also massage the first thirty minutes it’s in the marinade)

I know this woman who routinely takes bites out of her steak as she’s going to the grill. Like she gets impatient and decides to just eat a third of it raw as she’s walking out to the grill.

As I said in y steak post, so long as the meat is not growing harmful bacteria on the surface area, that is perfectly safe

I mean, she keeps doing it so if it wasn’t safe I’d just have to conclude she is something that couldn’t be killed by infection

It is actually complicated to grow bad bacteria on raw, whole muscle beef. Which is why “dry aging” exists.

Did I tell you?

I’ve recently taken up watching Bones.

I like this program! It balances intellect with sarcasm and absurdity very well!

I find it a little over the top, in that intellectuals don’t actually…

No. I suppose they do speak in that way, but they certainly aren’t that obtuse. I find myself wondering if half the cast is human neuroatypical, but… I identify with that.

I could do without the unnecessary fixation with the meaning of life without ever saying anything of use, and I could do without the over intellectualizing for the sake of it – you know, when they say something in jargon that no rational human wouldn’t say in plain English? That. I could do without it.

But I do like the cast. And I find the plots enjoyable if predictable.

Does this make me a good or bad person? I have no idea if this program is popular.

I LOVED Bones! Right up until they did a crossover episode with Sleepy Hollow. I enjoyed Sleepy Hollow, don’t get me wrong, but I did not enjoy bringing the two universes together. Part of the appeal of Bones is that every mystery can be explained with logic or science. In Sleepy Hollow, it’s all about magic and shit. The crossover show means that magic and shit is real in Bones, and that just annoys me. Especially since the only reason they did it was to get more people to watch Sleepy Hollow.

I did not know that had happened and would frankly find that obnoxious.

Be warned, Simon, this might be spoilers for you.

I enjoyed it for the most part – until Bones went from being Childfree By Choice to “It’s selfish to deny the world my superior genes/being a parent is the true meaning of life” mombie. And yes, I know the character in the novels actually has a daughter and the actress who plays Bones was pregnant IRL. But they could’ve worked around that. Star Trek: The Next Generation worked around Gates McFadden’s pregnancy by filming her only above the waist. They could’ve had Bones in another country and do all her scenes as if she’s talking to everyone at the Jeffersonian via Skype. No need to show her pregnant belly at all and give her character a kid. 

I also, frankly, can’t stand how judgemental Bones is of anyone with any sort of religious belief, but especially against Christians. My father’s a scientist, has a PhD in chemistry, works on making fossil fuels more environmentally sound. He’s also a Christian. He sees no conflict between religion and science. Not all scientists are all closed minded about religion. Bones treats Booth’s beliefs so harshly, even when she’s saying it’s okay to Baptise their daughter, that I’m surprised he can even get it up long enough to make her pregnant. You’d think an anthropologist like her would be a little more – diplomatic at the very least – even if she doesn’t believe herself.  

As for scientists in general – I find the Sy-Fy show Eureka has a more accurate representation of scientists than Bones does. Over explain everything, look for complicated solutions when simple will do, can be so smart they’re stupid, yet at the end of the day you can’t help but love them. Especially if they’re your dad. 

That is arguably the description of Bones. I do not enjoy the moral judgements, but I share the absolute rationality. I am not very fond of the absurdity of extremes. A girl growing up in the US is going to know “knee cap” and not say “patella” nor insist that everyone else do so.
