Sticky toot

Hi everyone. I've was at mastodon.social for over a year while I've searched for an instance that sounded like a good fit for me.

I am a cook, constantly experimenting with new recipes and techniques.

I read a lot of Science Fiction, a little bit of Fantasy, and a smattering of anything else.

I drink bourbon and am always looking to try new ones.

A company pays me on a regular basis to be a numbers geek.

"Reduce!" howled the protestors, "Reuse! Recycle!"

They were at it all night, keeping CEOs awake, vacating just before dawn.

As dusk blossomed on distant continents, others concerned with the environment rose and marched into the night.

Some simply planted and tended saplings, fiercely protecting their oxygen giving charges.

The vampires would save the Earth if humans didn't.

After all, they UNDERSTOOD conserving THEIR food supply.

The ghost walked across the room and through the wall.
"See?" I said.
My friend was deathly pale. "You didn't describe his clothes."
"You're the expert. I said I have no idea what period-"
"Next year."
"What?"
"We're working on that collection now. We'll release it next year."

... "Oh, what's that? ICE will be here in a few minutes? Okay got it!" and with a big grin slammed down the receiver and announced to the other kids, "Okay we gotta hide!" and ducked behind the pretend kitchen.

IT WAS A GAME YOU GUYS. THIS FOUR YEAR OLD'S FAMILY HAS HAD TO MAKE THIS A GAME FOR HIM.

Since we finally had a bit of cold weather I jumped at the chance to make a huge pot of Wham! Chowder. It's my twist on clam chowder, except without clams, cream, or any dairy.

Today I finished Semiosis and liked it well enough to skip my TBR pile and buy Sue Burke's next volume, Interference.

i have been forcibly reminded the voyager plates basically constitute a mixtape, unsolicited nudes, and directions to where we live

For dinner last night the mate wanted tacos/burritos and I wanted falafel. So... Falafel burritos are a thing, right? I made a tahini sauce with tex-mex flavors to bring everything together. We were both pretty happy with the results.

I'm sipping cognac and getting ready for Survivor. It's my Friday night; don't judge me.

A team I worked on 6 years ago lost a challenge and had to make a music video. I just rediscovered it. Keep in mind this is a lip sync with no talent, no budget, and only 20 minutes to film. That's me on the "drums."

I'm curious. Does anyone else read scientific papers for pleasure? (Boosts wanted.)

I just finished Derek Künsken's The Quantum Garden and liked it even better than the first book in the series. 5⭐!

Now I Semiosis by Sue Burke.

Hey if anyone wants to pool together (with each other, not me) the resources to buy a house on a 14 acre woodland property at a 2-3 hundred grand price point, let me know.

I know this is weird and probably fruitless, but I'm serious about it.

My parents can't afford the local taxes anymore and I'd be really happy knowing the place I grew up wasn't being subdivided into crappy commuter housing.
