nerdgasms: Alberto, is it me or has The Law been eating up a lot of your valuable blogging time lately? It must be crazy to have a job where you’re not procrastinating in front of a computer for huge portions of the day. Or even just many small portions of the day that are too small for anything else. K, Alas, yes. Working for the DA is like being a stripper: Sure, you meet interesting...
Lessons learned during Operation: Make French Toast: There is such a thing as too much nutmeg and cinnamon. My French Toast now tastes like a pumpkin rolled through cinnamon fields.* Way to go for the subtlety and richness of spices, past-12minds. * I suppose a cinnamon…fruit (tree? vegetable? animal? Where the hell does cinnamon come from anyway?) raised in the middle of a pumpkin patch...
I hate girl scout cookie season. There, I said it. The cookies are delicious, I’ll be the first to admit. But it’s such a shameful process from beginning to end.

Your books are weird but great. Jabberwocky is an inspired poem and you taught me about how sexy portmanteaus can be. (via)

Muscles better and nerves more. i like your body. i like what it does, i like its hows. i like to feel the spine of your body and its bones, and the trembling -firm-smooth ness and which i will again and again and again kiss, i like kissing this and that of you, i like„ slowly stroking the, shocking fuzz of...

Oh! Hi there, bloody nose! I was hoping you wouldn’t notice both the unfun stress I’m under AND the sudden change in temperature (seriously, east coast, wtf, mate?). I can’t say I’m pleased to see you around again.
