(opportunity to test the DW images interface here! ah, ok, looks like it's auto-thumbnailing. handy. click to embiggen.)

weird googly-eyed lobster dish

...IT'S LOOKING AT ME.

Must be one of those regrettable foods from a Sunset cookbook, right?

Nope. Larousse Gastronomique, Crown Publishers' 1961 English edition. I guess sad food photography was just endemic to the 1960s.

sass chicken: girl at the water fountain just complemented me on my hair and said it was like some kind of "intergalactic space thing"
sass chicken: i guess because my greys are shiny
sass chicken: (space hair?)
Stygian Syzygy: you are some intergalactic space thing

(My grey hairs tend to stick out among my purple dye, since I don't bleach my medium-slightly-reddish-brown and the rest of my hair thus looks pretty dark, especially if not backlit. The silver ones, on the other hand, turn !PURPLE!. As for the video footnote to understand what I was getting at with that last remark, uh, sorry for the earworm?)

‘1984’ sales soar after Trump claims, ‘alternative facts’:
First published in 1949, Orwell’s classic dystopian tale of a society in which facts are distorted and suppressed in a cloud of “newspeak” topped the best-seller list of Amazon.com as of Tuesday evening.

Well I flippin' well hope so!

I wonder if people are buying it for themselves, or if e.g. people are buying quantities to distribute, or something like that.

eta: Apparently the publisher has ordered a new print run to meet demand. crikey.

I was playing with https://coolors.co/ and...



...the heck?

I mean, it's not far off (the color specified in the CSS as "sacStateGreen" is actually #043927; I think #004f3d is maybe closer to "stingerGreen" #00573d). But... why?

Because everyone totally cares what we had for dinner: homemade pizza with Italian sausage, roasted red peppers, shallots, and crimini, oyster, and shiitake mushrooms. Inspired by having a totally, ah, uninspiring "forest funghi" pizza somewhere that involved only criminis. (srsly, I mean, we were not expecting the expense of morels on a $9 one-person-sized bar pizza, but maybe some effort towards variety...?)
