OH MY GOD. SO. I follow the RSS feed for Radical Face. He updates randomly, not at all consitently, but whatever. It's nice hearing that shit is getting done.
BUT THEN. Two days ago, he posted how he's doing some shows near me. ONE OF THEM ONLY A 3 HOUR DRIVE AWAY.
The THING is, the shows are super small. The one nearest to me is in a cabin in Tifton, GA. I had to e-mail the girl who apparently owns the property. Sarah and I did it on a whim, having no clue how much interest there was in the first place, sort of just hoping. AND WE'RE ON THE FUCKING LIST.
I GET TO SEE RADICAL FACE PREFORM IN AN INCREDIBLY INTIMATE SETTING A WEEK BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY.
I AM SO. EXCITED.
I haven't drunk-dialed Justin WHICH IS A GOOD THING. Not that I really want to but HEY. I HAVEN'T. SO YAY. I'm pretty sure he wouldn't want a call right now.
IN OTHER NEWS, RUM AND ROOT BEER IS DELICIOUS. Though I keep wanting to type Root Bear. ROOT BEEEAAAAR.
Sounds like...a D&D creature.
Of some sort.
LA LA LA LA this is purely for staraflur because she wanted it, NAY, SHE DEMANDED IT. SHE DEMANDED A DRUNK POST and so she got it.
I had a gyro for dinner and it was delicious I need more tzatziki sauce in my life. JUST BY THE WAY. Also I turn 23 in less than a month WHAT THE FUUUCK.
okay bed time for me nini
I'm going to take as many pictures as possible I guess, and try not to forget. I want to hold onto it for as long as possible. My memory is crap and so it worries me that I'm going to be done and wonder what happened.
Such is life I suppose.
So this is what I've been eating for awhile. I've not been very strict about it, unfortunately, but you'll probably understand why after these pictures.
This is what I had for dinner tonight:
Seems appetizing enough, I enjoy meatloaf and mashed potatoes. I don't get the pickles at all, but whatever. Now lets see what's inside...
Hmmm. A bit of disparity here. I see a lot of the tomato sauce and a hint of potatoes. Also, for scale, this is a really tiny portion. I mean, that's cool, I understand why. But it just looks sad. Maybe it'll look better after I microwave it?
HOLY MASHED POTATOES, BATMAN. Okay, I nuked it and flipped it upside down, and this is the sight that greeted me. They looked like plastic and took up the bulk of the container. This plate is a small desert size plate so there wasn't any magical enlargement here.
Now we go inside...
I don't think potatoes are supposed to stay in one piece like that. :T And the meat...ehhh. Oh well. It's dinner. I had some rather tasty mini chocolate chip and walnut cookies for desert, so there is that.
And I ate most of it. It doesn't taste terrible, it's just kinda...meh. Not amazingly delicious as the commercials or the box wants you think, but not completely disgusting. The only one I've come across as COMPLETELY terrible is the chicken alfredo. That almost made me barf.
I hope you enjoyed this delicious foray into the world of freak space food.
Oh, why do I call it space/future food? None of it has to be refrigerated. At all. It reminds me of Firefly/Serenity with the weird protein paste that they can make into anything and everything. Because I'm pretty sure that's what all this is.
On the upside? The bars and some of the just-add-hot-water lunch meals are actually pretty tasty. Some of my favorites are the macaroni and cheese with beef, alfredo (not the chicken alfredo, just plain alfredo), and some of the soups and stuff. Except for the ham and bean soup, that shit was gross.
Oh well. I don't have to pay for good I guess...
- Gender roles are shifting
- Expectations for maintaining gender roles remain
- ‘Nuclear family’ model no longer the norm
- Single parent and gay couples
- Attitudes towards nontraditional couples
Okay, those last two aren't really but jesus. These need to turn into 6 to 8 pages of brilliance, STAT. Technically 3 to 4 pages, single-spaced.
