Channel Five promoting a ground breaking documentary on the causes of the Great Fire of London. Are they finally going to break the silence on it being the Terileptils?

Temps set to fall a bit next week. Every year I say to myself that June in this part of Scotland, particularly the first couple of weeks, is a cold, damp, and blowy month. Every year I forget that too.

This is why I cannot grow tomatoes outside. Cold, damp, and blowy is a recipe for blight and we are guaranteed a blight week right in the middle of prime growing territory. You just cannot miss it.

So anyone else sow seeds and forget you've ever done it? I have some large seedlings germinating in a plant pot next to my front door. I just do not remember sowing any in it, but with my memory being so shot I could 100% have put seeds in and forgot about them. I figure they have to be cultivated seeds because they have that thick fleshy look to them and large seed coats just hanging on their first leaves (I forget the proper name for those thick fleshy leaves) which just do not look like self-sown or wild flowers. I wonder what they will turn out to be?

I'm still seeing sparrows gathering nesting materials out there. I know this year has been all topsy turvy in terms of weather, but it still seems a bit late for sparrows to be starting nesting.

My freezer has two drawers I cannot open due to freezer frost. Since it only has three drawers to start with then it is time to do an empty and defrost. I hate doing that.

Dear self: If you are making a cup of tea it is vitally important to actually put some tea in the pot as well as hot water. I am such an imbecile.

Okay so the viewing order on Star Wars movies so far, excluding the two Ewoks movies, Life Day Christmas Special and the animated stuff which are all kinda their own thing, is still pretty much based on the Machete Order:

1: A New Hope. Still the best intro to the Star Wars universe, and for as long as the Skywalker-Solo family drama is the lynch pin of it, best way to set up the themes and motifs.
2: Rogue One. We've set up the Skywalker saga, quickly double back for a how we got here just to underscore the scope of the Empire.
3: Empire Strikes Back. It is the crucial part of the saga, this is the bit where the rug is pulled out from underneath and the whole thing takes its turn for the dark and personal.
4 and 5: Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. We're dealing with the outcome of Vader's revelation and setting up the contrast to Luke.
6 Return of the Jedi. Armed with all the knowledge of the Force, the Jedi, the depth of Vader's fall and the sheer manipulativeness of the Emperor, it is time to see the full contrast between Anakin and Luke, The Emperor and The Alliance, the power of Lando's redemption and finally bring this first section to a close.
7 -Tentative- Han Solo Origins Movie. We can't go straight into the new Star Wars setting just yet, we need an act break, so that we don't all feel the despair at the Alliance's star didn't shine as bright as promised and that Han, Luke, and Leia's happy ending kinda fell apart in time. Since TFA makes a big deal of Han returning to his smuggler roots and always wanting to pull his heists even as he becomes the Obi Wan, this is probably best placed here. We could put TPM here, but it would be more as an after thought than as part of an arc.
8: The Force Awakens. New chapter in the Skywalker-Solo family saga. New heroes, new villains, just enough ties to the old chapter to keep things spinning.
9: The Phantom Menace: Mirroring Kylo/Ben's revelation as being a bit of a Phantom Villain (not to mention Snoke being almost a literal one of these) it is time to go right back to the start again. We can see whiny moppet Anakin/Vader as the cute kid to help further bust the myth of of the cool villain Kylo wants to be and see how Palpatine got his hooks into everyone comparing Snoke to him. Also it is far enough from ANH, Empire, and Jedi to really lay into Yoda and Obi Wan's really major failings at the supposed height of their powers even pre-Palpatine without harshing everyone's feels about their memory. Ties up pretty much the last loose ends of the old era, and possibly lays ground for Rey's supposed possible connection to Obi Wan as the next major family in the saga.
10: The Last Jedi...probably.

There was a clip of some show on tv, they showed an actor with crazy eyes which I vaguely recognised. I just could not bring his name to mind for the life of me though. So I google actor with crazy eyes. And Alfred Molina's name popped right up and it was him. Way to go google and crazy eyes dude.

I accidentally clicked onto a news-site and saw some headlines before I could click off again. Too slow on the backbutton. My mental health just imploded, again.

Smoked ham hock was the stock I used. Onion and celery were in it too. Still not sure on the tomato portion or the bulking though. Possibly carrots?  Is anyone reading? Does any of this sound right?
rhiannon_s: (help)
I've been sitting for ages trying to remember a recipe for spicy tomato soup that I used to regularly make. Literally the only part I can remember of it is that it took two birds eye peppers, or possibly scotch bonnet peppers. I cannot remember any of the other ingredients. I mean obviously there is tomatoes, but were they canned or did I use fresh? I cannot remember. Did I make my own stock, or was it stock cube? I'm sure there was a veg of some sort, could it have been potato? Would I have used potato as a thickener? Why can I not remember? I feel like so many of my memories are slipping away. I don't know what to do. I've checke some recipes on the net but none of them ring a bell. My brain feels smothered and coated in fog,

So finally leaving livejournal. I do not really want to and I'll still be reading my lj friends journal and posting and reading via lj, for now. I don't know what has happened over there, but the uncertainty of the Russian server and the LGBT restrictions have me worried. I wish lj had never been sold to the Russians in the first place. Too much uncertainty for me, I don't handle change well. I'm still getting over them withdrawing the half pence coin, for example. It is a pity. Lj saved my life, I'm certain of that. It was also my first home on the internet proper. I mean there was alt.fan.pratchett and uk.religion.pagan but those have long bit the dust, lj was a constant; and now it is not.
