Raincoats and recipes

I finished capping PotC. 1977 caps! I need help. But the really scary thing was when I capped season 1 AtS because I wanted some Cordelia caps. Over a thousand caps for the first four episodes. And I was really only trying to get some Cordy caps (and Cordy/Angel). Anyone want?

You know what bugs me? When people write "fake live journal cut" when cutting away for an icon post (which seems to be the "cool" thing to do right now) and then don't even create a fake LJ cut. Or even worse, make it an actual LJ cut. Seriously, if you don't know what you're talking about, don't write it. And now I'm going to go against what I just said and try to describe how to make a fake LJ cut without ever having made one myself. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Start parenthesis, space, url+cut text, space, end parenthesis. Bold the whole thing, and Bob's your uncle.

But really, what's wrong with just making an actual cut?

I've hardly made any icons this week. Not surprising, given that all my free time this week has been spent capping or watching Angel season 2. Except for yesterday, when I spent my free time by going with my mom to Norrköping to pick up my dad who's been sailing. For about two minutes we got torrential rain. Almost like the kind you get in Florida (though not during a hurricane), and it always freaks me out because usually when it rains here we get drizzle for days on end. Man, sitting in a car for hours on end just isn't fun. But at least it has a TV so we could watch the Olympics while we were waiting.

Just saw the Firefly trailer (really bad quality), and I want the movie now! It looks really great, and it's so much fun to see the whole crew again. Though did Kaylee look a lot thinner or was it just my imagination? I actually prefer Jewel Staite at her Kaylee weight, she looks emaciated in stuff like Wonderfalls. Looks like there's a lot of River, which makes me happy. I want to know what's up there.

I have an unnatural love for all things lemon. Man, I love anything sour. When I was younger I used to eat capers right out of the jar, spoonfuls of lemon and salt, and salt and vinegar chips are my downfall. It's a good thing they don't have those (or at least not any good ones) here. So I was wondering if anyone had any great lemon recipes?

My favorite is a melon-lemon salad. Sounds totally weird, but it's great. Collapse )
