Name a fandom and I'll tell you which character I most likely:

1. bake cupcakes for:
2. lend my books to
3. put thumbtacks on the chair thereof: [Note: I omit this one. I've had thumbtacks left on my chair and that was not pleasant, would rather not do.]
4. have a crush on:
5. pack up and leave if they moved next door:
6. vote for President:
7. pick as my partner in a buddy movie:
8. pair up:
9. vote off the island and into the volcano:

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] cassandra_e for pointing me to the Troll Lord Games website. Library humor!

The two companies immediately announced an aggressive lineup of alphanumeric expansion, with Goodman handling the numeric and Troll Lord handling the alpha. Goodman will begin a newly numbered series of Dungeon Crawl Classics modules based on the Dewey Decimal System.

So, purely as a matter of theory, if Matsu Yoshino has had his gempukku then he can no longer be considered jailbait, right?

I've been in something of a bind this week, since on the one hand I didn't want my first LJ post of 2007 to be depressing to write, and on the other hand I have a lot of things to complain about this week. Enter my rescuer: [livejournal.com profile] heiwako, who had this nifty quiz on her LJ today.

Your results:
You are Magneto
Mr. Freeze
Lex Luthor
Dr. Doom
The Joker
Poison Ivy
Dark Phoenix
Green Goblin
You fear the persecution of those that are different or underprivileged so much that you are willing to fight and hurt others for your cause.

Click here to take the "Which Super Villain are you?" quiz...

I used to collect X-Men comic books in my jr high and high school years, and Magneto was cool back in the day. I have no idea what he's like now, though.

One might think that after yesterday's knitted tofu pincushion that knitting had grabbed the moral high ground of coolness. And yet, no. By way of the ever-splendid Crochet Pattern Central, I bring you the Cosmic Energy Rune Set.

The tools that can be made in this pattern are runes of the cosmic energies. While these crocheted runes bear twelve of the most observed and documented energies, you are not limited to the confines of these chosen symbols or to the listed messages that I’ve associated with each of the energies. As you work with each symbol, you blend your conscious (studied) and subconscious (inherent) attributes with the traits of each rune. This blending creates (depending on your intention) a living magical essence that is attuned to you and your intent and / or a divinatory oracle that speaks the language of your unique heart and soul.

So there you are.

This afternoon I decided to clean off the top of our ovens which are, in case you are interested, free-standing gas-fired convection models. I hadn't originally planned to clean this afternoon, as we are out of several of the A-list cookies, but my hand started to hurt when I was scooping the Double Chocolate this morning so I decided that the remaining cookies could wait till tomorrow. Cleaning would be slightly complicated by the fact that the deli was currently using the ovens, but Iron Bakers don't let a little thing like 200 degree F metal get them down.

First I pulled off all the loaf and baguette pans we store on top of the ovens. Then I got one of our clean dust brushes and pans to sweep the top of the ovens off. ('Clean' here means for food-preparation surfaces only, not used on any floor!) This required getting the bakery step-stool so that I could climb high enough to reach all of the oven top. After sweeping I got a clean damp towel and scrubbed the top, being careful not to touch the hot metal with exposed skin.

At the point when I was scrubbing the top of the right-hand oven Alex from the Deli came over to put something into the left-handed oven. "Alex!" I said. "I'm literally slaving over a hot oven!"

I got everyone in the kitchen to laugh with that one.

This will not make any sense to you unless you are a Bleach fan, and even if you are you might not find this funny. But it made Deslie and I giggle like madwomen, so I am recording it here. You also need to know that we make granola bars in my bakery, and when Deslie makes them there is a large chance that they are going to massively overflow the pan and become an oaty-honeyed-buttery carbon mess on the floor of the oven. We haven't yet figured out why.

So this morning I was studying the Jewish Rye and wondering if the Salt-free Whole Wheat was going to bake fast enough to get out of oven before the Rye over-proofed and deflated.

Me:*waving arms and talking to bread* Slow down! Slooow dooown!
Deslie: I don't think that's going to help.
Me: My spiritual pressure needs exercising.
Deslie: That will only make it worse. You know what mine does to the granola bars.
Me: That's true. *pause* You know, I just had a vision of what your ban kai looks like, and it's not pretty.
