still not ok but distracting self by posting a recipe for soup. Serves 2.

1/2 leek
2 medium potatoes
1 large carrot
1 tbsp sundried tomato paste
2 cups chicken stock or vegetable stock
1/2 cup cream
Olive oil
black pepper, white pepper, green
pepper, pink pepper, allspice

in a pot, heat oil and toss in sliced carrot, leek and potato.cook for 2 mins, add spices as desired, and the tomato paste. Cook for another 5 mins, then add chicken broth.

Bring to a simmer, then let cook 15 to 20 min till potatoes are done.

Take off the heat, add the cream and give a few good bllllrs (that is a technical term) with a blender to puree some of it.

Enjoy.

I shall crawl back to insaity nao.

I was gonna update this with much happier stuff, but for the past week I've just been so enraged with LJ's asshattery that I've had it to here.

In case you didn't know, on 12/12 they first announced sneakily on the Russian journal of LJ's design guy that with new changes being implemented tomorrow, there will be no more subject lines in comments and that this change was "non-negotiable" (good round-up and translation here). I'm sure you all realize that this will basically make fandom and RP communities unusable. LJ's staff, however, doesn't give a shit. At least 18 pages of 100% negative feedback didn't sway them.

They've backpedaled some and will make keeping comment subject lines optional in some S2 styles, but the default (that 99% of communities are running right now) will decidedly be subject-less! Not to mention that their new and frankly, fucking ugly design will take forever to load and make the site a pain to use on mobile browsers.

And oh, it looks like they might be taking away the drop-down menu to select icons as well, so you'll have to load all your icons as pictures to select them. Lovely. (I will beta-test tonight to see if this is actually true.)

Really, I don't know why I'm surprised. LJ is always fucking with the parts of the site that actually work and breaking them, so this is just another instance of that. Because seriously, who are subject lines hurting by just being there? (And no, it can't be a matter of server strain, considering the new "graphic" interface will definitely be using up more resources - so much fun when there's DDoS attacks!)
As far as I know, they've never once listened to their customers, so those thousands of comments already posted probably won't do shit. I've left a message expressing my concerns about the new comment pages here anyway; so if you want to do that too, go for it! If anything, it helps with the rage. ;)

FYI: Dreamwidth is feeling Christmasy has reacted to LJ's bullshit and has open account creation (no invite codes needed) for the rest of the week. Might be a good idea to get your back-up or new home, whatever the case may be, up and running now.



Yeah. this sucks.

for various reasons, am not going to mera luna this year. (unless someone can borrow me 300 euro or so? didnt think so...)

So instead have a meme.


1. If you'd like to play along, reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter.
2. You then list (and upload or link to the video, if you feel like it) 5 (6, 7) songs that start with that letter.
3. Then, as I'm doing here, you'll post the list to your journal with the instructions. Easy peasy!

I got slapped with an E by [livejournal.com profile] raisedbymoogles :D

And i iz laxy. no links. do your own work :P
