enjoying not working so much! I'm writing a story about living soup, and another story about a gear that fell from the sky, and another one about a lake that has a cannon that shoots monsters! thank god for fiction.

also, a "things I've eaten" meme from hysteriachan. 70/100—I think I'm doing pretty well, and I have many years ahead of me.

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment here at linking to your results.

(the post here has wikipedia links to most of the unfamiliar entries.)
