Going through and changing all my “#he can stay” and “#she can stay” posts to “#they can stay”.

More for ease of searching than anything else.

The fact that the ALA shared this link is so gloriously bitter and angry and I love it.

Is there a portmanteau for that? Angritter? Bangry? 

FYI: Many libraries (even small town libraries) will let you borrow e-books for free. (PS: They also, usually, have regular books, audio books, DVD’s,and music CD’s for all ages; Plus, board games and puzzles and more for children. Oh! and they often have computers for you to use and free wifi!)
Support your local library.

The Derry Library will let you check out cake pans, as well, so there’s that.

dear every church teacher i’ve ever had,

obviously when you talked about the blessings of eternal families and being sealed forever, you weren’t sealed to an abusive father

signed,
a very scared six year old

The factors that have destroyed well-paying industrial jobs were conscious policy, not abstract global trends. The United States has trade policies that were explicitly designed to put our manufacturing workers in direct competition with low-paid workers in places like Mexico, China, and Vietnam. This had the predictable effect of driving down their wages. We could have put in place a trade policy that made it as easy as possible for smart kids in the developing world to train to U.S. standards and work as doctors, lawyers, dentists and other highly paid professionals in the United States.This would have driven down the pay of these professionals and made items like health care much cheaper in the United States. This was a policy decision, not a global economic trend. There is also a policy to run a high unemployment budget. Congress has decided to run budgets that leave millions of people out of work rather than spending enough money to bring the economy close to full employment.

when you tell a man how he has hurt you and his response is “oh I’m such a piece of shit I’m a terrible person omg omg” and mentions/does nothing at all w/re: to your pain

(and then you’re the one reassuring and comforting him of course you are, again)

This is a abuser tactic. If a man does this, he is a toxic person and a manipulator who needs to be avoided forever.

it doesn’t matter where they are on the gender spectrum: THIS IS STILL A RED FLAG.

Reblogging because I’ve been there. And I fell for it. Many, many times. And I wish someone had been there to tell me this.

what is the MAGIC

it’s called mochi!
it’s like ice cream in a soft skin!
also, it’s fucking amazing!

This is もちアイス (mochiaisu) and the “soft skin” is pounded rice cake. The white stuff you see on the outside is powdered sugar so they won’t get sticky. It’s very delicious on a hot day and you can get these at the right self-serve frozen yogurt joints. Unfortunately North America sells one mochiaisu for a dollar and some cents whereas in Japan you can get these by the boxful in any supermarket.

Want it. Nnh

you can make it yourself at home folks! Mochi is really simple to make, all you have to do is take 2 cups rice flower, mix with 1 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar, boil it in a pot or put in a ceranwrap covered bowl and put in microwave for 7 minutes. turn off the heat and stir it until it becomes solid and sticky. Then you can roll it into balls with a little bit of rice flour on top to keep it from being too sticky. Then you can eat it just like that, cover a scoop of ice cream and freeze it to make this, or you can make Strawberry Daifuku which is strawberries and red bean paste (anko) wrapped in mochi. I make it all the time!

Aww damn i gotta do this!!

Waaaaant. You’d find them in regular supermarkets in Seattle. Out here? Not so much. :(

reblogging this because MOCHI RECIPE

omg thank you for this recipe ive actually been buying them for a dollar each

A caveat to the recipe, you actually need SWEET rice flour. There is a difference between it and other rice flours! Sweet rice flour (also known as Mochi flour or glutinous rice flour) gets that really sticky, chewy consistency (sort of like a marshmallow, but less saccharine.)
Also, on another note! The dusting . On the outside is typically potato starch!
Both of these can be found at Asian markets for 1-2 dollars a piece!
And im case you’re worried you’ll never use them again, both can be used as thickening agents in gravies, sauces and the like!
 Forgot to mention! Even though it is called glutinous rice flour, it does not actually contain gluten, and is therefore perfectly fine for people with gluten sensitivities or allergies to eat! 


brb, gonna go find rice flour.
