Chinese Food etc

So I’m reading about a place I’ve been to eat at a few times and the article has the following:

Until roughly a decade ago, when the Chinese began travelling more freely, bringing with them thrillingly punchy cooking from its various provinces, Chinese food in Britain was dying. It was dominated by over-sweetened iterations of clumsy Cantonese dishes which made you hate yourself for eating them.

And I cannot help but wonder where this person had been going to eat. I mean sure, you do have English-Chinese food, but that’s why when you go to a Chinese restaurant you take a look and see if there are more white people than Chinese people there and then you know what kind of Chinese food to expect. I guess this guy didn’t know about the secret Chinese menu.

saw the rifftrax "the five doctors" live show last night with a couple friends. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS EXPERIENCE. :D

And here's a bonus episode for all of you -- all just a wee little diversion from my previously scheduled review episode (which I'm getting back to very soon!), full of my belated thoughts on Jodie Whittaker and her recent casting as the Thirteenth Doctor.

So, please join me as I discuss Jodie herself, as well as Chris Chibnall's soon-to-be stewardship of the show, finally having a female Doctor in our midst (at least as far as the TV show is concerned!), fandom's myriad reactions to the casting news, lots of gender stuff, and, finally, just my own reaction to the news.

And as I said, this is basically a 'mini'-style episode, but again, as with previous 'mini episodes', its admittedly not particularly short in length (yes, despite the diminutive name status!) It's just how I currently differentiate such episodes from the 'regular' episodes, especially when taking a break from the regularly scheduled program. But that's all inside baseball. Or something.

Oh, and also from a production standpoint, this episode admittedly took a few weeks to edit with all my own recent Life Stuff slowing things down, so some things mentioned may be a bit dated here and here, but it's all good. I doubt it will impact anything, really!

Anyway, as always, glad to have you all here and please do enjoy the ride!

One of my mutual followers posted this, and asked help in making it go viral.

So I'm sharing it here, in my other social circle:

I love the rain.

I am exhausted with cleaning. There is so much filth. I haven't done the stairs. I can't bear to. Don't make me. My feet hurt. I've got to take the dog out. And then go to work.

I hate my carpets. I wish they were purple. Can you dye carpets?

I have not magically won £51 million. I've been vaguely pissed off about that for a while now.

I haven't done anything exciting with all the time I've not been posting, I had some depression, and then I was really busy for a while and couldn't think, and then everything I wrote down came out wrong.

I finished Saving Hope. Read more... )

I have finished the second book of the latest trilogy of Fitz/Fool, and I keep trying to start the last one but then I can't. I can barely look at it.

I looked up whether you can dye carpets and you can but you'll likely ruin everything and then have to live with your disasters because you can't afford carpets because you haven't won £51 million which is about what carpets cost.

I'm attempting to use a password manager. It feels like the least secure thing I have ever done.

Okay here is a (Not Very) Lovely Story, it is called Chips (AO3 link).

It is about Bill going to visit Missy in the vault and she takes her some chips. Perhaps surprisingly this does NOT lead to happy carefree moments of bliss and/or Sapphism. It has no pairing as such and it is rated G because it does not even have swears in it. (Go me!) But it is a bit horrid, I should probably mention that.

one more random thought: there was so much interesting potential in this past series of doctor who to compare the two orphans who wanted to go to school, didn't think they'd be able to, but made it despite the odds (and then end up running away to go be gay married in space to their own spaceships) so WHERE IS ALL MY META AND FIC HUH??

thankfully i have some ideas for at least one story but fandom, you're really letting me down here.

YEAH BITCHES IT IS DONE. It is not quite 10,000 words but nearly, which is odd because not much really happens in it?? It is, erm, Twissy fic with lite pr0n content because it is about aliens going into heat and making sweet yet frantic love to each other. Thusly it is rated "Mature" so children are not allowed to read any of this under any circumstances whatsoever. I dunno, it'll have to do because I don't know how to rewrite it any better than it is.

Here is the AO3 link, yo.

Pls enjoy and be kind about it??
