    Israeli couscous based pilaf with almonds?

    Ah, the joys of having a human body. Before starting my internship I injured my pinky, which is close to being healed, and last week my eyelid swell up due to me having my nail dig into the inner corner of my eye for no one knows how many hours. Now my other eyelid has what seems like rug burn from rubbing it loads due to dry weather.

    Life is such a blast.

    It's difficult. Remember pretending to be NT so that people don't exclude you for not being normal? (and if not, where on Earth do you live?) Well learning to remain in a different energy state is just as hard.

    Ouch, yeah, minor injury collection is the worst. I've personally never had ones on my eyelids, but as my work refuses to get a new vegetable peeler* I end up taking the skin of one of my knuckles off wherever I have to use it (because nobody else here can't work out why you can't efficiently peel parsnips in a potato rumbler). Yeah yeah, peel away from you, that only really works when the peeler isn't on it's least legs.

    So yeah, hope it all heals soon and that new wounds don't suddenly appear.

    * There seems to be a rule that if it costs money and it's not absolutely essential it doesn't get fixed or replaced. Some of this equipment is going to die soon from not getting proper maintenance.


    My scald seems to be halfway to healed. At the very least the scab has begun peeling off.

    Oh, and recently had an argument with a friend about the fact that I loathe Valentine's Day. People can stop hearing about that fact when they stop using the day to push their relationships in my face, thank you very much.

    Neurodiverse technically includes a number of mental illnesses as well, but yeah 90% of the time NT is used to mean nonautistic. As a side note it's also used as a slur in some autistic communities.

    Do you mean "neurotypical" is used as a slur by some autistic people against non-autistic people or "neurodiverse" is taken by some autistic people to be a slur against autistic people? The irony of that question is not lost on me.

    The former.


    Anyway, a friend has told me that I might be developing problems with Depression, especially as there's a history of it in my family. I'm honestly scared to talk to my GP about it because I don't want to know, and even if I do have it I don't have anything severe enough to get treatment on the NHS.

    While it might not be the case for you, wouldn't it work better to get the diagnostic and then try and see what you can do to develop coping strategies with the resources that are available? This counts friends and family as well as anything that is professional help that you can access. Social support networks can help even if you cannot get professional help.

    It's not that I'm not planning to, it's that I'm scared of the result. If I never did stuff I'm afraid of I wouldn't be on OKC or trying to ask out people at work (also I'm working Valentine's Day, I foresee at least one of my co-workers claiming somebody likes me).

    To some extent potatoes replace grain dishes. That said, I'm all about lentils, millet, and barley for this sort of thing.
    I would really like to see a game made by Obryn, Kurald Galain, and Knaight from these forums.

    It comes from a very childish form of self-centered entitlement. Speaking from experience. I wish I'd had your attitude in my teens.

    For me it's mainly because inevitably, something always seems to go wrong on Valentine's Day, entirely unrelated to the holiday itself. So... it's just a victim of association.

    (I do like the 15th, though. Cheap Chocolate day. And nothing so far has gone bad then.)

    I am still ashamed to admit this story.

    When I was in high school, our class government would deliver a carnation flower with an attached note to anybody in the school on Valentine's Day, for the price of two bucks. In order to enhance my reputation among the class, I paid to have one delivered to myself, with no sender's name attached.

    For what it's worth I'm 23 now and I don't think I had that attitude in my teens. Not that I hated it when I was a teen or anything, I just didn't think about it or have an opinion.

    Hey man, that's not shameful. Love yourself. Be your own Valentine. Buy yourself a carnation.

    It's a lot less a hate for people doing stuff on the day, but the fact that people feel they have to announce it just because it's Valentine's Day.

    I mean, seriously, nobody I know announces their dates, except on the 14th where it's all 'because it's Valentine's Day we built a boat and then went out to the Ritz for a meal before finishing the evening by going to see film.' If people are willing to just shut up about it as far as I'm concerned they can do whatever they want and it won't affect me, but considering practically every one of my RL friends is in a relationship it gets tiresome.

    Basic brown rice or bulgur. You want something plain and a bit earthy to set a counter-point to the fruity and citrusy notes you have.

    Had a stunning realization lately. Often when watching shows with friends I can predict more or less where they're going. I'm good at catching bits of forshadowing and can make some pretty good guesses on where a story is going. I'm usually praised for being eagle eyed about these things (valid) or just really smart (true but not important) and, it occurs to me, what the actual reason for why this is.

    I'm the only person who knows how to ****ing extrapolate.

    This is why with some stories, I get frustrated when there are potential themes that could really work that are not really worked with to make a story that still delivers, but not to the height that it could have. I guess they can be proto-themes, as they don't actually arise.

    The Kate Daniels series is an example for me where there are a lot of ideas that could have been expanded on for interesting effects that just...aren't. And it really feels like the authors (writing duo) didn't really see this potential within their works.

    I know I'm often bad at picking up on subtext and reading between the lines and stuff for stories ahead of time. And, granted, that's in part because I enjoy being surprised. I like not knowing where the story is going, and all that. Because that's an experience that you can only have once. Granted, it can be fun to guess at what's going to happen, but I try to not hugely analyze anything beyond stream-of-consciousness thoughts.

    It's pretty much this for me too. I like not knowing where stories are going (unless they're horror stories), so I don't really want to predict them. Plus, I'm usually too busy taking in the details to step out and analyse them.

    On a completely different note: I wish that the English language had kept "ye", as well as "thee/thou". The lack of these linguistic tools is frustrating.


    And no, y'all and all y'all are not adequate substitutions.
