Still too tired for more than snippeting

So none of the longer discussions I've planned. One of the reasons for this tiredness is a migraine only partly aborted by medication, another is that in spite of that I made a rather elaborate meal this evening, mostly consisting of a shoulder of lamb roasted in a herby pilaf crust, roast potatoes and carrots and steamed runner beans. It was rather fine - the meat melted in the mouth because the lemon in the crust, and the marinade which preceded cooking, had pretty much disintegrated its fat and tough tissue. Plus nectarines in sliced yoghurt.

Last night, potato and tomato curry of significant heat, and a mild thing made by grilling aubergine and then casseroling it in a yoghurt, tomato and mint mix. Yes, I have been pulling out the recipes file and actually cooking from it.

Tomorrow, grilled mushrooms, and steamed sweetcorn. Probably with elaborations.

I could never be a vegetarian, I will never go back to a diet in which I eat meat at every meal or anything like it.


In West Wing tonight, Bartlett says he wants his daughter Zoe to have 'commonplace experiences with girls your own age'. Which would be a wonderful title for a piece of Zoe femslash if anyone wanted to write it.


A few comics observations I just noticed that Ultimate Wasp wears incredibly tiny Doc Martens...And that the rebel pupils' haircut in Grant Morrison's run on New X-Men is something one of them got out of a magazine - and the magazine in question is one that appeared in Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross's Marvels as a part of the 1950s mutant scare section.

And Warhead, the grey-skinned Goth with raggy hair, who is part of the Hellfire Club in Whedon's Astonishing X-Men appears to be the same person as Teenage Megasonic Warhead, who prophesied doom in Emma's class in Genosha, and was the child she pulled out of the rubble with her, not realizing she was days dead. I don't know what he is up to...

Can anyone tell me about the alleged occasion when Emma beat up Mojo and Spiral? Was it mack in her Hellions days?.

And that's enough. Another thing which needs to wait is the attempt by Kenyan bishops to suppress fossil evidence of evolution. I am so very tired of religious crazies I need to write about them again. But not now.
