Things.

  • I've always wanted to have a tarot card reading done, but never really had the opportunity. I don't know all that many people in meatspace, and the ones I do know generally aren't familiar with that sort of thing. I'd also like to learn how to do tarot readings.
  • I'd also really like to learn to knit*, but diagrams are not my friends. I think if I knew someone who could knit, I could probably learn pretty quickly, but I don't. My aunt Claudina knows how, but she lives in Illinois. I think Mrs. Gibault knew how (or how to crochet, which I'd also like to learn), but she is dead. March 19th will mark a year since she died. Wow.
  • The "Orange Ka-Boom" smoothies at Smoothie King are delicious. They are probably riddled with bad-for-me sugar, but I don't give a damn. They're full of orange and mango, and they are an excuse for me to say "KA-BOOOOOOM!"... even if only to myself, before each sip. Shut up.
  • I will never be able to cook crabs or lobsters. Even aside from the whole killing of the lobster, which I cannot bear to do. But both crabs and lobsters are those rare creatures that are oddly adorable from a top view, and absolutely terrifying when you turn them over. OHGOD. Also, Alton Brown was doing a crab episode of Good Eats last night, and the ongoing joke was that a 'dangerous' live Blue Crab was loose on the set. So every so often in part of a shot, there he'd be, waving his little claws as though he was saying "Hello!" while a JAWS-like theme played in the background. He was precious. I cannot cook precious creatures. It makes me sad.

    *Knitting and crocheting fall under the category of "Skills I Wish to Acquire So As To Make Myself Useful In a Post-Apocalyptic World". Because I'd be crap at defending myself and whatnot, so it is imperitive I become skilled in crucial things that make other people want to help keep me alive. If I can learn how to brew beer, I'm golden.
