Not surprisingly, I can totally and absolutely and 100%ly recommend cesperanza's latest story, because omg, John. She captures him so well, his strength and self-deprecating sense of humor and also essential insecurity and fear and complete inability with, ugh, words. Oh, ♥. Luckily I'm pretty sure Rodney understands what he's getting himself into, and it makes me so very gleeful to realize that in any relationship between Sheppard and McKay, McKay would probably be the stable one. Mostly.

The yikes-kitties landlord emailed me the most apologetic note (seems there's already 2 cats in the household, which, yeah, 4 cats? yikes, indeed), so of course now I feel like an asshole, so I emailed her back, and ugh, awkward, except of course over and relatively unimportant. Except. I hate when I get pricky like that, and it sure is a lot less often than back in the day, but still it always seems so ultimately useless to get my back up about stuff that just doesn't matter -- not more than for a few minutes, anyhow.

Okay, done. Done? Ha HA.

Fuck, I can't wait for Radiohead in August. In Rainbows remains one of the best records I've ever heard. ...seriously, it's worth the 10 bucks on iTunes. I've listened to it daily for like 6 mos now and every day, yada yada, my heart. Fuck. Thom Yorke, some day I'm going to marry you so hard.

[They offered the record for download when it first came out; you could donate whatever you thought was the right amount. Supposedly most people spent about 10-15 bucks for it; pretty standard sums. Later Thom Yorke admitted he downloaded it for free -- his own record, for free, for his gramma. Ugh, WORDS. LOVE.]

Other than that, uh. Idk, how about a recipe for cauliflower? *lame* I got this from, which is an organic grocery delivery service frausorge turned me on to -- vegetables! I know, I can't get over it. I haven't had a Big Mac-n-fries in months.

Anyway; it's good.

1 sm cauliflower (about 1 3/4 lb)
1 tsp coarse salt
3 tbsp butter
1 tblsp olive oil (or bleu cheese dressing, if that's all you have... I kid! Just kidding! sry)
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp whole grain Dijon mustard
1 1/2 tsp finely grated lemon peel
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

1. Preheat oven to 400. Butter rimmed baking sheet. Cut cauliflower in half, then cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Arrange slices in single layer on prepared baking sheet; sprinkle with salt. Roast until cauliflower is slightly softened, about 15 min.

2. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, melt butter and mix in olive oil in sm saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in lemon juice, mustard, and lemon peel.

3. Spoon mustard-lemon butter evenly over cauliflower and roast until tender-crisp (or slightly charred, if you're me), about 10 min. longer

4. Transfer to platter. Sprinkle with parsley and serve warm or at rm temp, or else gobble down immediately like a great wanking hog -- again, if you're me.


*flails* I have no excuse. Um, it's 1 am, and I'm up for the day?
