05:36 pm - Tuesday Truths
Truth: When I am low of mind and/or body, I crave comfort-carbohydrates. Today we are at Defcon-Garlic-Bread.

Truth: Every time Master Danger and I go out into our backyard, the dogs on all sides of us start barking. I have begun to call him "John Adams," because he is clearly obnoxious and disliked. [per 1776]

Truth: No one on this earth looks worse in photographs than I do. (No, I will not post any to prove it.)

Truth: I should stop trying to make microwaved-oatmeal happen.

Truth: As Benedict Cumberbatch proves here, windowpane check and a skull tie look spiffy together.

Truth: The Oxford English Dictionary notes that "spiffy" (of "obscure origin," admittedly) is first recorded in dialect (as a noun) in 1874.

Truth: Tom Hiddleston dancing is a joy forever.

Truth: Crane and Abbie in this 'gif set from "John Doe" look like they're about to do a lovely 18th-century dance. On top of a lake. You kind of have to go with it.

Truth: Soup's on!

May your truths be happy ones today. :)

Good thoughts for a good evening, Cronopio. Possibly with garlic bread. :)

I comfort eat just about anything; but garlic bread sound good...cheesy garlic bread sounds better :)

I do like cheesy garlic bread, but the situation today required a version without cheese. :)

Cheers, T! Happy middle of the week!

Truth: No one on this earth looks worse in photographs than I do. (No, I will not post any to prove it.)

I'd like to test that theory.

On the other hand, we'd both have to post photos, and I'm not sure the universe is ready for that...

Oh, to have soup weather again! What sort of soup is it? I shall enjoy it vicariously, while planning cold leftovers for dinner here, where it was over 90° in the back yard this afternoon.

Oh, I so sympathize with the too-hot-for-soup feeling! We're still in the 80s here, but it was cloudy enough I could fake it. ;)

And the soup was chicken and vegetables.

Cheers and hugs for your day!

I was going to withstand your craving and then you said garlic bread *sigh*

I've had success with oatmeal (rolled & steelcut) in a rice cooker. I've also been reading about refrigerator oatmeal -- apparently it will self-soften with milk and Greek yogurt.

I've seen that refrigerator oatmeal recipe, but I haven't tried it. You're inspiring me to attempt it, JH! :)

Hugs!

I could show you some photos of me if it will make you feel better. ;)
And that is indeed a spiffy outfit on BC.

I've learned to love (or at least endure) what happens when I put oatmeal in the microwave because at that time of day I can't usually do more, but am so much happier when I do put forth the effort to stir up a long-cooking pot of steel-cut oats.

A little more Hiddleston for you...

Hiddleston really is astonishing. :))

And I have old-fashioned, not steel-cut, oats available, but I think I really will try to make a pot on the stovetop this weekend. I am resolved.

Hugs hugs and I hope your birthday was great!

L, I am v. happy to share the Tom Hiddleston, Tom Mison, and Nicole Beharie links -- or as I like to call them, Your Daily Dose of Puppies and Joy.

The OED is great. (I'd have thought 'spiffy' was a 1920s expression. But I know now!)

Hugs and a great rest of the week, Stevie!

Just once I'd like a good photograph of myself. Just once.
