I wanna do this with you
I wonder if I could use this to create a copy of that key and break into that house.

This is the time to find people within short distances from each other, to discuss private screenings, share head canons and theories, and exchange stories from cons and other events.
There will be a gift exchange for those who are in attendance. Please bring a gift if you would like to participate priced, with a price tag from $1-$15. You may also bring handmade gifts.
Though the event is scheduled from 5:00pm-7:00pm, please keep in mind that you are not expected nor required to arrive when it starts and stay until it’s over. Indeed, if you would like to roll out with new friends *after* the allotted time slot, it is highly encouraged. Take lots of pics and post them, wherever your “hunting trips” may lead.
Buses 48, 66, 67, 73, 76, and 984 drop off at NE 65th St & Roosevelt Way NE. Bus 242 drops off around the corner at 8th Ave NE & NE 64th St. This area is semi-residential, so it’s possible to find street parking for cheap or free if you’re willing to walk.

Time: 11:00am until 11:00pm —- Location: kiterieaine’s
This will be a monthly meet-up where we watch Supernatural from Episode 1 on. We’ll pick up where we left off at the next meet up and I will let people know which Season and Episode we’re on.
It’ll be here at my place. I have a 60” TV and lots seating. I encourage people to bring snacks and drinks. If you want alcohol feel free to bring it.
Bringing games is also highly encouraged. Keep it in at least the vague direction of Supernatural though since this is an SPN event.
Minors are welcome (I have a 12 year old), but I do want a permission slip with a phone number so that I can call to verify that the parent(s) are aware they are at an event where there may be alcohol and cussing.
Times listed are relative. The first episode will probably start at noon in order to give people time to arrive.
**Please contact kiterieaine for more information; this is a member-hosted event.
Feel free to use our Facebook, Tumblr, or Twitter to get a hold of people who can help you with information or directions to an event.
Also: Should you ever wish to host an event of your own and live in the Seattle area, feel free to tag your tumblr post with #seattle spn!
LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU!
Smoking Bishop is a warm mulled wine and port drink, sometimes known simply as ‘Bishop’. Out of all the mulled drinks around Christmas this one is my favourite. Bishop is made with oranges, or sometimes lemons, or sometimes both, with wine, port, spices and sugar, which is added according to taste – it received the name ‘Bishop’ from its purple colour, similar to a Bishop’s formal attire – and ‘Smoking’ comes from the vapours rising when it is being mulled or heated.
Although Jonathan Swift, in the late 1600s, wrote about it, in his verse ‘Oranges’, the drink itself was made famous when Charles Dickens has a reformed Scrooge say to Bob Cratchit, (at the end of ‘A Christmas Carol’, 1843) “… we will discuss your affairs this very afternoon over a bowl of Smoking Bishop, Bob!” And indeed it is just the sort of drink you want to sit down with friends in front of a log fire with …
Apparently the trick is that you bake/roast the oranges so that they caramelize first. I desperately want someone (who is not me) to make this (for me).

From the NY Times article:
"Education matters. If I didn’t believe that, I would have long since abandoned my role as a public health educator. But history has clearly shown that teaching people what is good for them is not enough. It must be accompanied by restrictions that curb unhealthy habits and environmental changes that foster healthier ones.
Cigarette smoking is a classic example. Myriad well-publicized reports documenting its hazards — even warnings on cigarette packs — did relatively little to get people to quit smoking and keep others from taking it up. It was not until smoking was banned in workplaces, restaurants, public buildings and transportation that smokers became social pariahs and millions gave it up. Today only about one American man in five smokes, down from nearly one in two 40 years ago.
Just as the tobacco industry disputed the link between smoking and lung cancer for many years, claiming the evidence was circumstantial and did not prove cause and effect, the American Beverage Association says that there is no proof that sugary beverages are major players in obesity and diabetes.
But why wait decades for conclusive evidence, by which time millions will have been sickened or died from obesity? If there were an environmental threat with even a fraction of the health risk posed by sugary drinks, there would surely be a large public protest.”
As an alternative to giving your kids sodas and other sugary drinks (like Gatorade), try these suggestions:
- real juice (with no added ingredients) mixed with seltzer or club soda
- lemonade/limeade mixed with seltzer/club soda (this should be not overly sweetened with sugar, not HFCS)
- flavored seltzers/sparkling waters (unsweetened)
- water mixed with real fresh mint, lemon, fresh ginger and/or cucumber
- tea (my son loves Celestial Seasonings Thai Sweet Coconut Chai)
- orange juice (real juice) While it has natural sugars, oj has nutritional benefits unlike soda, koolaid and gatorade.
- milk Milk also has naturally occuring sugars, but can be nutritionally beneficial (but limit chocolate milk because of added sugar).
- smoothies Make your own with frozen berries, bananas, juice, yogurt and/or honey (here’s one of my recipes and another green juice one)
Underneath the mini tarot card is a small snap-lock bag with a bank receipt and a grocery receipt. In the glass on the left are salt, cinnamon and cloves; the glass on the right, soil from my vegetable garden. The 10c coin between the glasses has “feoh” written on its face in green and gold ink. The pile of coins I will add 5 or 10c to each payday. The purple card near the coins is the information card from the ladybird charm I found recently, which signifies luck in the area of money.
If I remind myself to light the candle for a short time each day, it will remind me to focus and be mindful of my money, and to use the space that I have in my yard to help with my self-reliance. I need a lot of self-reminders and help with focus right now.

- 6 hard-boiled eggs, well chilled (I try to cook them to just past soft boiled stage, then stick them in the coldest part of the fridge to firm up)
- 1 lb good quality sausage meat (I used ground turkey meat, seasoned with sage, white pepper, salt, and a tiny bit of maple syrup)
- 1/2 cup AP flour
- 1-2 eggs, beaten
- 3/4 cup panko-style bread crumbs
- Vegetable oil for frying
- Peel eggs; divide sausage into 6 portions.
- Roll each egg in flour then press and shape a portion of the sausage around each egg.
- Dip sausage-wrapped eggs into beaten egg and roll in panko.
- Heat oil to 350˚F.
- Cook each egg for 4-5 minutes (longer if shallow frying–constantly turn the eggs around for best results) or until sausage is cooked and browned.

Glasshouse is a lamp which aims to satisfy the desire for fresh herbs in a city kitchen. Its shape was inspired by growth of plants. The herbs are planted inside the lamp along its wall in a kind of gutter around a central opening. (foto Jaroslav Kvíz)
