...and I'm not sure I like it. Maybe it's because I don't like new technology things (they scare me) but, more likely, that I'm not doing this in html and it's weirding me out a little. Hm.
Oh well. Please also take a gander at these random bats I took a photo of while at Fenway Park, for no reason other than one of them was Coco Crisp's.

|Is this what it's supposed to look like?|
Iris, don't forget to make this when you get back from your vacay.
It's been a great April, all...thank you so much for visiting!!!

Tasty Tofu, you ask? San Jose Tofu is at my nearby Japanese supermarket. IMO, SJ Tofu is nowhere as good as, say, Meiji Tofu in LA, Honda Tofu in Wahiawa, Hawaii, or, if you want to get more chichi and hipster abut it, Daizu-Tei at the farmer's markets there. But before I digress too much further, SJ Tofu is better than the ubiquitous tofu brands available everywhere.
And tuck the contents of the cup in the center. This cooks the egg a wee. Bring the contents of the pot to a boil again. Transfer the teacup, sauce and all, to a bowl, and pour the yudofu around the cup. Garnish with mitsuba sprigs or chopped green onions.

|The world doesn't need another American-made Kaiju movie.|
That being said, in the hunt for words that start with "X" I discovered that Xanthodont = one with yellow teeth, and I'm assuming that Godzilla is, considering he eats people and cars and buildings and stuff, and we never see him brushing his teeth or flossing or anything.
Seriously, instead of remaking Godzilla movies a million times can we please remake Gamera? He's my favorite. Oh wait, on second thought, let's not wreck it. I love Gamera too much.
I leave you with this:
I love Mystery Science 3000. I really do. And now I've gone completely off-topic! Yay, me!

|Whooo Baseball Mecca!|
You can say they absorb the intentions of people who go there, or you could simply say that it might attract folks of the same mindset as you, eh?
So I wanted to go to Wrigley Field. It's old. It's served as an entertainment venue since 1916. And I wanted to know, well, what it felt like.
Call me crazy, but that's actually why I'm going to go this weekend, flying all the way there from California. Or you could say, I'm going to check out the behavior of those supposedly crazy Red Sox Fans. We'll see how it goes ;)

|This one's a keeper.|
But I'd like to mention Sunshine, by Robin McKinley. She's my favorite, you know. And her take on vampires is the most original, best-written piece I've read in more Sunshine,than a decade, heck since I was born, maybe.
It's also the most underrated. No one I know who's read Twilight (except for maybe one of the members of my writing group) has ALSO read this. It's a shame, really.
Please read it, if you think Twilight is your idea of the epitome of vampire novels. You'll be SO glad you did :)
