It's such a great show! I only wish people didn't write off animation as insignificant kids' fare, because anyone would benefit from watching this show. I mean, of all the shows he's done, Mark listed Avatar as the show he fell in love with the fastest! I can watch episodes over and over again, and no matter how often I watch them, they still make me laugh, cheer, or cry (about four episodes off the top of my head make me get teary). It's just that good.

Me too, any Zuko episode can get me going. Except for the one where he, his sister and her two friends went to the beach. That made me wish they had their own spin-off series. 'Zuko's Summer at the Beach'

"Yes! We have defeated you for all time! You will never rise from the ashes of your shame and humiliation! Well, that was fun . . ."

And the complete FAIL that is Azula's flirting:
"That's a sharp outfit, Chan. Careful, you could puncture the hull of an Empire-class Fire Nation battle ship, leaving thousands to drown at sea. Because . . . it's so sharp."
"Ummm . . . Thaaanks."

Just when I wrote this boy off as too young, immature and Just Not That Into Me, he contacts me today and is as oddly endearing as ever.

Damn him.

Hey, grammar question. Does the second part of a phrase with a colon have a specific name? Like in something like this: "Book One: Flight". The subordinate?

moodydove: mrs.poppers is the expert, I'd say. I don't want to give you misinformation.
--------------
I lost it with the other rescuer. She keeps sending me every g-damned detail that every Joe Blow tells her, while I'm up here, dancing between an angry kennel owner and my new-agey friend who believes that microchips cause cancer.

I sent an all caps message about mico-managing.

I'm so ashamed.

I will be assembling and dismantling a giant dog crate all weekend, until I have my time down to five minutes in case it gets cramped in the car with the dog and my friend. And I'm buying an extra ratchet, just in case.

(Shaking myself by the collar: "What have you become, woman?!")

Twenty minutes until I do a henna glaze.

Why do I always feel the need to do stuff to my hair when I'm stressed?

Is that a dog collar or a shirt collar?

Good luck with your hair, I'm really interested to hear how it comes out!

This (from Nancy Silverton) is PERFECT:

Quote:
If I were queen for a day, the first thing I would do is outlaw the serving of a traditional Caprese salad when tomatoes aren't in season, and the second thing I would do is put a moratorium on how many ingredients can go into a salad.
Preach! It makes my soul weep just a little bit whenever Caprese gets suggested during winter. WHY???? I cringe just a little bit whenever I see certain posts here with the dreaded winter Caprese.

Quote:
So what makes a good salad?
First, it should start with quality, fresh ingredients. Many lettuces are available year-round, but other fresh ingredients, such as green beans and tomatoes, are so bad when out of season that using them will ruin anything you add them to.
A good salad should also have the right choice of vinaigrette or dressing for the greens, and the right amount — underdressing a salad is as much an offense as overdressing one.
The right dressing! So for the love of god, stop smothering everything in balsamic dressing!

Then this:
Quote:
Once they have the greens in a bowl, I think they're always surprised when I have them salt the greens before dressing them. The dressing also contains salt, but tossing the greens with salt first ensures that the salad will be properly seasoned — and an improperly seasoned salad is one of the most common reasons for a mediocre salad.
Which led to this comment:
Quote:
I was horrified, but not surprised, to see the cook adding salt to the lettuce. New CDC guidelines for those over age 51 suggest max 1,500 mg salt daily . . .
I'll bet that this cook even salts pasta water!
Sigh. And yep, we all salt pasta water. We salt it like the mother****ing ocean!

My periods were cake for about 30+ years. Once a month, light, no cramps, 3-4 days long. Since I turned 50 they are now every 2 weeks or so, super heavy, bad cramps, 7-8 days long. Last weekend I ended up on the living room floor in a sweat. If I could have made it to the ER I would have gone. I will skip the gory details. It was bad. I'm tired of it. I want to be a normal 54 year old who doesn't have periods anymore. End of whining.
Hope you feel better phoenix.
Ack, no one told me my period change. I hope this phase doesnt last much longer...for either of us!

^^ Wow, seriously? I'd never heard of salting a salad before dressing, but I thought salting pasta water was just...how you make pasta. My mom eats a low sodium diet and she still salts her pasta water - though not "like the mother****ing ocean," lol!

Mystic, Zuko's arc is one of the most well-developed, well-executed, and fulfilling of any show, not just animated ones. He's a great character.
