When I was 11 (and again when I was 15), I climbed the Grand Teton (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Teton). It was really, really difficult. The first time I climbed, I was with my dad's family. When we reached the top, a freak thunderstorm hit and we had to climb down as fast as possible (because of the lightning danger). I was pelted by heavy hail and the trail became a mudslide. By the time I reached the trailhead, I was muddy, bloody, and bruised from head to foot. Good times. #SaturdayFF

Pictures are from our trip to Grand Teton National Park last summer. In the picture on the left (or top), Grand Teton is the one poking into the clouds.

I think so. I have some friends who are non-stop adventure seekers and it just sounds exhausting to me. I remember more about each adventure because I give myself time to reflect on how fun/scary/bizarre/interesting it was. I've also done a lot of what I call "solo adventuring," and that is where some of my fondest memories stem from. Knowing I went out and did something by myself feels pretty damn good. :)

Miniature Meals Taking Over YouTube in Japan http://www.weirdasianews.com/2015/12/08/miniature-meals-taking-over-youtube-in-japan/

Comment

"For the last twelve months, a growing trend has caught the attention of YouTube viewers worldwide. These miniature meals, also known as pocket cooking, are most popular in Japan. No one is quite sure how this phenomenon started, but many people look toward the YouTube channel Miniature Space, which is the perfect embodiment of Kawaii cooking (Kawaii means ‘cute’ in Japanese). It doesn’t hurt that there are over 460,000 subscribers to the channel, with some videos having been viewed nearly 4 million times."

At McDonald's in Japan, the staffers are now required to ask every customer "would you like to bonsai that?"

I'm confused: is this thing supposed to look good?

I would probably take a different approach to doing something like this, starting with any muffin or quickbread recipe that will lend itself well to a savory dish. I'd make "normal" waffles using the batter, then top it with the sauce and cheese, then either nuke it or bake it till the cheese was melted. Suitable waffles can also be made ahead of time and frozen, so you'll have them on hand for a quick lunch or snack. An interesting variation I can think of off the top of my head would involve making waffles from corn bread batter, topping with salsa and either cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese.

Now that there is a twitter import, please please please give us also the chance to hide it all. I hate twitter imports. If I wanted to read twitter, I'd be on fucking twitter.

Comment

Unfortunately, I can't distinguish Twitter imports from anything else. When I'll create the proper Twitter integration, there will be "hide source" functionality.

#sinceFFdied I read 466 books last year, and bought tickets to Paris for March of this year. Otherwise things are pretty much business as usual.

Oh yeah, also I remembered that I like to color. A LOT. and listen to podcasts. 2 things I forgot about during grad school :D. And we got 2 more cats (now we have 5).

But counting just books and comics it's pretty inaccurate. I think we should be able to add mokum thread on goodreads too.
