Are you registered? Use 18 Million Rising's Voter Registration Tool to get started.



Hey, folks. Today is National Voter Registration Day. Your voice matters, and one of the fundamental ways our community can speak out, stand up and be counted is through the ballot box. We have the numbers. We can have the clout. But only about 30% of eligible AAPI voters make it to the polls. What's up with that?

So... have you registered to vote? Our friends at 18 Million Rising have teamed up with Rock the Vote to launch a handy Voter Registration Tool to get you started. Their Elections 2014 website has everything you need to become a registered voter -- including gaining access to voter registration assistance in 13 different languages. You'll also find tools and other resources to start a get-out-the-vote campaign in your own community.

Midterm elections are just a few weeks away. Registration deadlines vary in each state, so head over to 18 Million Rising and check the map. And tell your momma. Tell your friends. Get registered to vote.

ココナッツミルクの抹茶ラッテを作った後、まだココナッツミルクが残った。
パンケーキで使った。
材料は:
小麦粉 160g
卵 2個
ココナッツミルク 375~400ml

普通のパンケーキの作り方で作れるけど、普通のパンケーキよりもサイズが小さい方が良い。
1. 生地を作る:
ボウルに卵を割りほぐし、小麦粉とココナッツミルクを加えて滑らかになるまでかき混ぜる。
2. フライパンを使う場合、バターを溶かす。
3. おたまを使って、生地をフライパンに流し入れる。
4. 生地の表面がかたまったら、パンケーキを裏返す。側面にも火が通ったら、完成。ジャム、シロップ、砂糖などをパンケーキに塗れる。

Coconut milk pancakes

ココナッツミルクのパンケーキでハチミツを塗った。
Kokosmelkpannenkoekjes met honing.
Coconut milk pancakes with honey.

Na het maken van de kokosmelk-matcha-latte had ik nog kokosmelk over. Daar heb ik pannenkoekjes mee gemaakt.
Ingrediënten:
160 gram bloem/meel (ik gebruikte speltmeel want dat had ik nog, maar je kan ook gewoon bloem gebruiken)
2 eieren
375~400 ml kokosmelk

Ik had ze wel kleiner gemaakt dan normale pannenkoeken, want dat bakte makkelijker.

After making the coconut milk matcha latte I still had coconut milk left, which I used to make pancakes.
Ingredients:
160 gr flour (I used spelt flour, but you can use other kinds as well)
2 eggs
375-400 ml coconut milk

I made them smaller than normal pancakes (normal Dutch pancakes are the size of a plate), because that was easier to bake.

Achievement of the day: walking a nine-month-old niece to sleep with a combination of "Tommy's Lot," "Bath Time," "Midnight Feast," "Fine Horseman," "Some Old Salty," George Mackay Brown's "John Barleycorn," "Drake's Drum," and "Three Fishers." (I scrambled the genders on that last one. Even Leslie Howard doesn't believe men must work and women must weep.) By that point we were on the bike path. We were almost home when my brother came by to collect her in his truck whose muffler just died and she recognized the sound instantly and woke up. It is amazing how much more of a person my niece is even than the last time I saw her. She is crawling now, and standing if she has something to hang on to, and she sticks her arms out to be picked up and then climbs. I had to tuck my necklace inside my shirt because she goes for it just like one of the cats. She has silvery strawberry-fair hair and her eyes are grey-blue with a dark, dark outer ring. Curiously, very much like derspatchel's. He will look related to her when I don't. She didn't want to leave without waving to me.

The collected print edition of the first year of Mythic Delirium is now officially a thing. It reprints my poem "Cuneiform Toast" (after elisem's earrings of the same name), it got a starred review from Publishers Weekly, and I really like the cover. Available by World Fantasy in November!

Speaking of snakes and gaze, check out sairaali's "Gorgon Girls." I've been waiting for this poem to go live; it amazes me.

Unrelatedly to any of the above, this gifset is the cutest outtake I have seen from any Harry Potter film.

Today, actually, pleasingly: not bad.

Episode 51, "Rumbling": I completely forgot the existence of this episode until I was checking a list for titles. On skimming the transcript . . . yeah, no wonder I forgot it, though it has an extremely cute Carlos/Cecil moment at the end.

Episode 52, "The Retirement of Pamela Winchell": we were asked at the LonCon panel who our favorite character was, and she was the first one to come to my mind (besides Cecil, I mean). So this was great.

Episode 53, "The September Monologues": I was thoroughly unimpressed with the middle one as a character, and the voice that Steve Carlsberg's actor uses makes my ears itch.

Episode 54, "A Carnival Comes to Town": (spoilers) )

And hey, a weather by a band I knew already! We'd seen PigPen Theatre Co.'s "The Old Man and The Old Moon" (NYT review) on a trip to NYC a few years ago. It was generally charming but I spent every minute that the female character was onstage thinking (a) this guy is doing a very nice job of playing an old woman but (b) could they really not have found a single female actor to guest in this role, even if they didn't want to have her be in their company/band?

The deleted opening scene from Captain America: The Winter Soldier

PERFECT! It takes care of the biggest plot hole in Cap2 and is super adorable. I am all for this headcanon.

In the comments to this entry, either do the following exercise or say you have done it in your own space (you can access-lock or private-lock your journal entry if you like):

List as many things as you can to illustrate what a wonderful person you are: personality traits, accomplishments, friends you've made, children you've raised, bad habits you've kicked, adversity you've overcome, anything and everything you can think of to capture the success in your life. Don't hold back!

Try to list at least fifteen things. Then bookmark the comment or entry and, anytime you're having a down day, come back and look at it, for a confidence booster.

Don't mind me, I'm just here making incoherent flaily flappyhanded fangirlness over the S3 premiere of Saving Hope. OH MY GOD I FUCKING LOVE THIS SHOW. I was crying and laughing and OH CHARLIEing and OH ALEXing and OH CHARLIEing and then being incredibly shallow over how beautiful Michael Shanks' eyes are and oh dear lord when that man cries it breaks my little heart into teenytinypieces!

Is it Friday so i can download 3x03 yet?!!!!!

I missed posting yesterday, as yesterday was not a good day. Mostly hormonal, though, I suspect! It's weird still having a monthly hormonal cycle, but no way to know when it's happening.

1. I have Haven and now Sleepy Hollow to catch up on! As soon as I unbury myself from work, there shall be TV.

2. Ioan's new show Forever debuts tonight. I confess I wasn't bowled over by the teaser they released, but I shall watch, because, Ioan. ♥

3. One way or another, I will be done with the Job From Hell today. Or die trying.
