Food, Audiobooks and Cartoon reboots.

[001] Will be trying out a few audio books in the future, mainly Terry Pratchett's Discworld, Neil Gaiman's American Gods and Mercedes Lackey's Take a Thief. Also want to continue with The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy since I've listened to the first book so many times - its one of those books that make me laugh out loud in public so people look at me like I've lost my mind. But its worth it! Do wonder though if anyone had favorite audiobooks to rec (of the fantasy genre in particular).

[002] I found PC's World's Best Scottish Shortbreads at Superstore and they are amazing. Being butter cookies they reminded me of the danish variety I ate as a kid but the flavor was richer and so yummy. Never had shortbread when I was younger so was surprised to discover that its the granddaddy of all butter cookies It's much more satisfying than regular biscuits, so I can eat a single serving (2 pieces) without being tempted to grab another (unlike regular chocolate biscuits I tend to go for)

[003] Whenever my family and I would visit relatives in Goa, India, we'd have a particular type of Pao Badji for breakfast. My sister made it successfully and squeed about it on the phone, and now I want some :F The main ingrediant is Yellow Peas (or Vatanna) and the recipe she relied on was mainly this one with a few variations (much less coconut).

I found some other goan recipes for yellow peas too (1 | 2 | 3 | 4) and just remembering how yummy it was makes me want to run to the grocery store again. Will wait till I need more food stuffs though.

[003] New chapter of The Breaker is out and has me all WTF at the twist and cursing evil mangaka who leave you hanging.

[004] Oh and recently discovered that by signing up to OneManga, its possible to add fave titles to your own manga list and receive email updates (or a custom RSS feed!) for when there is an update! Added Skip Beat and the Breaker asap haha

[005] Forgot how enjoyable the first season of Minami-ke is <3 I just adore Kana - there's something about her that is just so much fun! I just wish the second and third seasons had better graphics.

[006] While reboots of franchises are pretty common with movies, unless they were originally comics (like Batman and Spider-Man) its unlikely to happen with cartoons these days. Would love to see the following cartoon reboots: Bionic 6, Johnny Quest, Carmen Sandiego, Jem, Prince Valiant, Swat Cats, Thundercats, She Ra, Pirates of Dark Water, Dungeons & Dragons, Ducktales, Gummi Bears, Robotech/Macross.

I'm thinking more along the lines of The Amazing Spider-Man, which has good redesigns but still has that old school flavor - there are more PoC and female!power in the reboot IMO and would love to see the same with the other shows. I do wish there were more seasons or just continuations of Batman Beyond and Avatar though - and god I hope Spider-Man gets a third season soon D:

    So I've plumbed the depths of AO3 and read the ficlets and PWPs and WIPs of note and come forth with the remaining Derek/Stiles recs :D There are…

    As much as I loathe a hiatus, when its periodic like with Harry Potter and Teen Wolf, it gives fandom a chance to give into the cravings and…

  • 50 Recs: Derek/Stiles (Teen Wolf)

    So, uh, I can safely say that if not for AO3's download option, the MoonReader app and hour long transits to and from work, I'd never have read this…
