Judging by the “Dear Yuletide Author” posts I’ve managed to miss Yuletide again this year. This is probably for the best, given that I tend to get overambitious and then fall on my face when I commit to Yuletide.
BUT if anyone has been craving fic and you know it’s a fandom I know and like my writing style(s), feel free to tell me about it and I will relatively arbitrarily* decide to write you some words.
Or, y’know, if you’ve read the Saga of the People of Laxardal and want to write me preeeeeeetty much anything about it, I am down for that like Kjartan under Bolli’s sword.
*based on my own preferences and inversely proportional to the amount of romance involved
I was wondering, do any of you food and alcohol loving people have a good recipe or tips for mulled wine from scratch? I’ve had difficulty finding good mixes, and prefer all natural methods anyway, when possible.
How I do it is I put cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, lemon and/or orange peel, sometimes cardamom or star anise in a mesh tea ball or a cheesecloth bag, sweeten the wine with a bit of brown sugar and set it on the stove (covered) over low heat for an hour or so (I sometimes thin the wine with a bit of water, especiually if I mean to leave it on the stove for a long time).
A crock pot would work, too, but I haven’t got one
My only advice is do not take Arthur Knapp-Shappey’s advice.
Darnit, I can’t read papers while my hand is gooey because I can’t take notes
I can’t go fetch gauze pads because it’s cold out and I can’t put a jacket on
How am I supposed to get anything done?
Also, as an explanation: Guys, I am not a bad cook. I am not an unsafe cook. What I am is bad at explaining and delegating.

I give you: d’Artagnan singlehandedly storming a castle.
why does no one ever talk about what fire actually is like it’s not a solid, liquid or gas, it’s just kinda there
this is one of the things that have mindfucked me since forever
like what is it
I asked my chemistry teacher this the other day and he said it’s technically a gas but then he whispered that it’s actually not and scientists just don’t want to admit that they have no fucking clue
my chemistry teacher’s great
Guys, it’s a plasma. An ionized gas (a gas of charged particles) that are attracted to each other and can conduct electricity. Plasma.
