Multitasking = Doing Very Poorly Each and Every Tasking

Finally, finally, I have been able to rescue some pictures from my broken WD MyBook external hard drive, and I’ve reposted several posts from 2012 with pictures this time. I’m not buying WD products anymore due to lack of durability; Seagate HQ is a few miles away, so I can get “local” hard drives from Best Try, LOL. Enough meta-discussion.

This is another no-recipe post. Lately, I’ve been making other people’s recipes, and I guess it’s a derivative work if I veganise/deglutenise them, but I’m not going to post the full recipes. I made peanut butter cookies and chai shortbread from Vegan Cookies Invade your Cookie Jar by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero. The PB cookies were for TC and I gave away most of the chai shortbread.

Basics: Tofu Scramble

Tofu scramble…so basic, I’ve never even mentioned a recipe. It’s more of a concept than a recipe, amongst vegans. You know you’re vegan when…you can make tofu scramble with your eyes closed. It’s the vegan version of scrambled eggs, literally and figuratively, due to its ease of creation and its strong resemblance to the animal thing. Point made? Point made.

What the Hell Happened to Compassion?

My friend Potter said the above years ago. I blogged about it without stating it in 2011.

Join me in a thought experiment. Nota bene that this thought experiment is in the setting of 20th-21st Century Western Hemisphere society.

Devilish Chocolate Cake

Nutrition advice is everywhere. Or perhaps because I study nutrition, I see it everywhere. I predicated my junior paper, “Losing the Guilt: Language, Religion, and Weight Loss in Modern American Diet Culture” on this concept, focusing on how I observe(d) religion and nutrition occupying the same shelf space. While the literature I studied was mainly Christian, that’s not to say followers of Jesus Christ have a lock on religious diet literature. Geneen Roth’s Buddhist Women, Food, and God is but one of many New Age and Eastern mystic-influenced diet/heath/nutrition books (one which I consider particularly illuminating).

Canticle of the Oat Farl

Take a seat; there’s a sermon in here somewhere.
 
Last week, I read Isaiah 24:16 before going to bed: “For the treacherous deal treacherously/ The treacherous deal very treacherously.” (NRSV)
 
Treacherous cat is treacherous.
