: I have figured out microwave quinoa
. Bring two parts water or broth, one part quinoa to a boil (I went 2 1/2 minutes in an 1100 watt microwave, 1 cup water, 1/2 cup quinoa;) then simmer on 30% power for 15 minutes. Mix with...wait for it...pesto sauce or another sauce/salsa you savor. :D I'll be trying it with pineapple salsa for breakfast. I figure I can put it in to simmer, then shower and dress and come out after it's been resting for a few minutes.My change of weather cold
: not to be confused with my short-lived cruise cold, mind you, is in the disgusting clearing out stages. If I can't see an expiration date on the bottle of Mucinex it must still be good, right?My boy cat
: total sot. I came back from the kitchen to see him licking my beer bottle
. Sani-wipes to the rescue! (It's a fairly expensive little brew from Trader Joe's and, like, half the bottle was left.) Rodney McKat is sulking around my ankles, his back turned exactly
to me. I have a feline alcoholic wannabe.My elbow
: after a quiet few weeks during which I ditched my therapy exercises, it is sore in the golfer's elbow
region again. (snivel, whine) Apparently, I now have a barometer in my elbow. I finally noticed it does this when rain is coming. (whacks geezer cane) That sort of thing is for old people! Baby boomers do not age
gracefully!Summer Movie Watching
: (links to Wikipedia -- do not read Plot section if you do not wish to be spoiled)Oblivion:
Starring Tom Cruise. Someone has a killer sense of irony on so, so many levels. I very much enjoyed the movie, though.Iron Man 3
: Still love it, still waiting on slash fixes.Mark 15, Pepper? Really? Tony's boyfriend would have known...
Should possibly be nominated for some sort of "most deceptive trailer" award.Star Trek Into Darkness
: up next. Favorite trailer quote: "There's greatness in you, but not an ounce of humility." I know the reboot is a time-warped alternate universe, but am still not holding my breath for that Kirk trait to change.
