bossymarmalade: (pre-coital coffee)


Sure, there’s hordes of evil to be stopped, people in peril, outer space battles to fight.  But in-between, there’s a full-service cafeteria and lots of other superheroes to talk to.

Looking for a mature, active, two-year-strong DCU roleplay that offers plenty of plotty and casual RP?  One where it’s cool if you want to race/gender/sexuality/etc.-bend some DCU superheroes?  One with an in-house artist who draws the characters? Come join us in the Justice Lounge, modded by [personal profile] glockgal and me!

bossymarmalade: rainbow layer cake (each a different flavour of jello)
Vancouver weather has done its job and the snowstorm of Tuesday and Wednesday has been almost totally washed away by rain. Plus after this workday, I am off for a week and Lori will be doing all the driving, huzzah!

I must tell you all about the fancypants chicken I bought on an EthicalDeal coupon -- this biddy usually costs $36 dollars, as it is a "RedBro" chicken from local Polderside Farms, and their press agent says, "These prized poultry enjoy additive-free stone-ground grains, veggies and sunflower seeds and are raised slowly and with plenty of space, which contributes to excellent flavour and a larger size than a conventional chicken (about 6 lbs. - enough to feed 4)".

So basically what I am saying is that this better be the best damn chicken I've eaten. Or at least the best since I last had a yard fowl in Trinidad.

In other and repeated news, if you are looking for a DCU tumblr roleplaying game, check out the Justice Lounge! We are super friendly and laid-back but keep a good modly rein on things, we have threads on tumblr as well as chat RP and a player chatroom, we have big storyarcs and fun memes and random nonsense and a healthy dose of smut. Plus Lori and I have designed the game to be a happy place for female/genderfluid/queer/chromatic/etc. folks as much as we are able, so hopefully it's not as problematic as other tumblr-based games can be.

Also, what other RP games out there offer original glockgal art with your RP characters? NONE!!
bossymarmalade: bubbles and hearts (happiness for fifteen cents)
I am reading a book called "Dishes and Beverages of the Old South" and am currently fixated on this instruction:
Wash butter well to remove the salt, and squeeze out water by wringing it in a well-floured cloth. If there is a strong taste, or any taste of rancidity, wash well, kneading through and through, in sweet milk, then rinse out the milk with cold water to which a little borax has been added.
Rescuing rancid butter? Through kneading in sweet milk? And a finishing rinse of BORAX?!?

I mean, I know this is probably the old-fashioned salt butter that my mother ate in her youth, the kind that needs washing before you eat it and whatnot, but wow. That's a lot of very strange effort to rehabilitate it. I think if I were transported to ye olden days and expected to survive, it wouldn't be long before I would just give up, lie down, and die. If the dropsy or some mouldy wheat didn't take me out first.

In other news, [personal profile] glockgal's and my tumblr DCU roleplay is going well. REALLY well, considering we are total newbs at running an RP. It helps that the bulk of the people who signed up are over 24, clued-in, and generous when it comes to the other players. Check out the archived stuff (including art!) over at [community profile] thejusticelounge, if you're so inclined! We're not canon-bound -- indeed, sometimes for the sake of plot expediency we're not even factual science-bound, heh -- and would LOVE to have new members!

And now for lunch. Which today is Trader Joe's tamales. I tell ya, since we found that store an hour's drive across the border and back? It's been a godsend. mmmmm, green chili and cheese tamales.

Today is a linkspam kind of day:

. the daily meal: 150 iconic dishes from around the world
I just started paging through these, but from the main springboard article I'm delighted to see Trinidadian doubles mentioned! Other countries make roti as well, so I guess some people would argue that Jamaican roti is better (not me), but I don't think anywhere else makes doubles. I wish I had some RIGHT NOW.

. richard bolai: timeless | feinin
I just discovered this art blog by a Trinidadian bookmaker and art critic. Some of his work and writing seems a little unfocused and -- as can be the trouble with textually rendering nation languages -- the Trini dialect is somewhat impenetrable in places. And a few of the pieces feel very problematic to me. But I still find the troubled, urgent vivisection that characterizes his art to be very compelling.

I'm just reminding myself that I want to make this. *g*

Juuuuust in case you missed my original post or are on the fence about it, I wanted to link back to the tumblr-based RPG that [personal profile] glockgal and I started! Here's the bullet-point salespitch:
- race/gender/sexuality/ability/etc.- bending is a-ok!
- minor time commitment, only three comments/posts a week (can be in a conversation)!
- what you do is all up to you: plotty action, conversations, writing smut, whatever!
- [personal profile] glockgal is playing Kyle Rayner, so part of her RPing is drawing one of the current characters almost every day. EVERY. DAY.
- any DC comics character (minus the New 52) or DCAU character (minus Teen Titans and Young Justice) is a-okay!
Even if you've never RPd before, even if you can't commit a ton of time, even if you're just curious -- give it a whirl! Tumblr is a VERY casual medium, and we wanted a more casual RP than a serious, involved journal-based one. We'd love to have you!

Thank y'all for the very kind virtual housewarming congratulations!!! It's shaping up beautifully. Soon I'll start baking bread on my days off and I'll feel like a milestone has been reached, heh.

As for what I've been doing apart from house and home stuff:






Sure, there's hordes of evil to be stopped, people in peril, outer space battles to fight. But in-between, there's a full-service cafeteria and lots of other superheroes to talk to.

Looking for a mature DCU roleplay that allows for heavy plot AND/OR casual interaction? One where it's cool if you want to race/gender/sexuality/etc.-bend some DCU superheroes? Come join us in the Lounge!

YES, [personal profile] glockgal and I have started a tumblr RPG! Tumblr can be a pretty unwieldy mode of communication, but we wanted something very, VERY casual as opposed to starting a journal-based RPG. So, here's my bullet-point sales pitch:

- race/gender/sexuality/ability/etc.- bending is a-ok!
- minor time commitment, only three comments/posts a week (can be in a conversation)
- what you do is all up to you: plotty action, conversations, writing smut, whatever!
- [personal profile] glockgal is playing Kyle Rayner, so part of her RPing is drawing one of the current characters every day. EVERY. DAY.
- any DC comics character (minus the New 52) or DCAU character (minus Teen Titans and Young Justice) is a-okay!

If you feel curious and wanna check it out, please feel free and ask questions here or on tumblr! Needless to say, we want an RP that's not rife with problematic players and the shenanigans that ensue (don't even ask us about what got said re: "native american names" and "handicapped people" in the RP we ran away from, ugh) so if any of you wonderful, clued in, fun, smart people are interested in joining, we want to encourage you as much as we can.

Did I mention my sister is doing DRAWINGS OF THE CHARACTERS EVERY DAY?!?!

Hope to see you there!
