UHT milk? Makes sense in the 'no-frills' context because it's usually cheaper than fresh anyway.

Re: Vegan Food

These are some of my favorite vegan recipes:

Pea and Mint Risotto
Parsnip Nut Roast (this one's great for Sunday roasts or Christmas)

Also, anything from Go, go, vegan. Yum!

Re: What are you readioactive now(and other book related stu

I just finished "blueeyedboy" by Joanne Harris. Seriously, seriously weird, and dark. All narrated via on a fictional website called "WeJay" which is blatantly based on LiveJournal. Layers and layers of deception and false identities. I think I need to go back to the beginning an...

Re: What are you readioactive now(and other book related stu

Hee, it's a good book, but it is so achingly quaint and woolly middle-aged-middle-class ('quintessentially British'), I was a little disappointed after the wonderful heartbreaking work of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time


Aw, but that's why I love it. It's a book I can relate to.

Re: Books you had to read for school that you could not stan

David Copperfield. It wasn't awful, but it was kind of slow. I felt as though there was a lot of extraneous description and detail that could have been cut out. Julius Caesar. That was so boring. Even when we went to see it, it was boring, and that's coming from someone who has rolled around on the ...

Re: What are you readioactive now(and other book related stu

I'm re-reading "A spot of bother" by Mark Haddon, which is one of my favourite books.

I'm also reading a book called "Moon Daisy" that my mother gave to me, but struggling to get into it - hence why I keep skipping back to the Mark Haddon.

Re: Reactions to your Major

I studied physics for undergrad and then moved more towards maths for phd. I would usually get a reaction along the lines of "Oh, you must be so smart to do that!" Um, no, I just have a particular skill in one narrow area, namely maths and physics. That's no smarter than someone doing, say...

Re: [SAFESPACE] Woman Thread - All Things Women. Period.

On a similar note, my gyno said that menstrual cups are dangerous, and "like a lot of things that come here from america, rubbish". He went on to say that only sterile things like tampons should be inserted in the vagina, and boiling the cup is worthless. I don't use one anyway because of...

I think I need to implement the 30 second delay. Although it might irritate me so much that I decide to give up on work entirely and go do something else.
