I’m going to call this recipe more Asian-influenced than Asian. But I just made it for dinner tonight and I think it came out pretty well.
I like figure skating. As should rapidly became apparent.
The ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating is about ready to kick off.
We have the Rostelecom Cup first on the 20 October until 22 October in Moscow.
Next is Skate Canada on 27 October until October 29 in Regina, Saskatchewan.
Third is the Cup of China on 3 November until 5 November in Beijing, China.
Fourth is the NHK Trophy on 10 November until 12 November in Osaka, Japan.
Fifth is the Internationaux de France on 17 November until 19 November in Grenoble, France.
Sixth is Skate America on 24 November until 26 November in Lake Placid, New York.
The Final will be held on 7 December until 10 December in Nagoya, Japan.
Skaters earn points based on their placement in each event and the top 6 in each discipline compete in the Final.
I may or may not post some squeeing after watching these competitions. We’ll see.
And looking over those kind of dates, knowing he had to do two of them, plus the Final with Nationals only about two weeks after the Final made me blink again at poor Yuri Katsuki from Yuri!!! on Ice’s stress levels.
Also makes me appreciate the hard work put in by the real skaters. Good luck you guys!
Sometimes it seems like Murphy likes to add insult to injury.
Like there wasn’t already enough going wrong, why did Murphy have to do X?
Poem: Florida Mornings
A free-verse poem.
As I mentioned over on Vathara’s blog, my bunnies liked the idea of doing a crossover between Log Horizon and Rurouni Kenshin. Now they have a lot of ideas and sometimes they lost interest in them quickly but what the heck, let’s brainstorm!
All Romance E-books is trying to get away with stealing from their authors. Pass it on.
While roaming the internet, I came across this neat video about the scale of our solar system.
If you’re like me, you have difficulty fully wrapping your brain around space distances. I understand intellectually that distance between objects in space is huge. But it can hard to visualize just how huge those distances are.
So maybe this video will help you get that picture in your head. It’s been helping me.

I recently re-read it and my bunnies sometimes like to speculate. Remember, this is just me voicing some random thoughts about the world and the story without hogging her comment sections. Just to get it out of my head and into paper so the bunnies will quiet down about it for a while.
If Vathara finds any of this nonsense useful bunny feed, she is welcome to it. If not, that’s cool too.
While discussing Vathara’s story Whispers of Fire, bookscrazygirl made a remark about the possible significance of the color of the silks being used and it got me thinking.
Another tidbit from the Sea and Fire Universe. This one is well after the first one and should give you some idea of what my bunnies think of things like writing in chronological order . . .
Edit: Apparently while adding the cut, I accidentally deleted most of the text.
Ja’far had heard that “may you live in interesting times” was considered a curse in certain parts of the world. In others it was a blessing.
