why everyone should love frank iero

so even though i've tried to convince her before, miss_diverse  is still on the fence over whether or not she actually likes frankie.

personally, i like him because he's a total dork, he doesn't mince words, and he's not afraid to be himself. plus, he loves dogs. =)

this is my desperate second attempt to win her over, using frank's own words instead of pictures.Collapse )

toast on the rampage

reni_days  and i were talking after i came home from work last night, and we got onto the topic of how jumpy some people are, and she can be, and i used to be. and then, specifically, about how jumpy the toaster can make a person.

like, you know it's coming, okay, but it still scares the shit out of you when the toast pops up. you'll even be talking yourself down the whole time, like "it's just toast, it can't hurt me," and then the toast pops up and you scream and jump a foot off the ground, like it was all, "DIE, BREAKFAST-EATING SCUM!"

and the whole thing was really stupid but we laughed really hard at ourselves, and i couldn't get the picture of violently homicidal toast out of my head, so made a picture. =D

best cookies ever

current song: theme to the andy griffith show

modified a bit from a recipe found on the kraft foods site.

2 pkg devil's food (or just chocolate, really) cake mix
1/2 c peanut butter
8 oz (1 pkg) cream cheese
2 eggs
about 3/4 bag of chocolate chips
little bit of sugar

if you don't have a hand mixer and you're not an arm wrestling champ, give up now.

for the record, these ingredients are a bitch to mix and it'll take a while, but it's so worth it. the final product is super crumbly.

grab a handful of crumbs and squish/roll them into a ball. place it onto an ungreased baking sheet (i like to put parchment paper on top of my cookie sheet first, so that i can just slide it off when the cookies are done, and put the next batch on). repeat many times. gently press with a fork, then press again so there's a criss-cross pattern on top (like a peanut butter cookie). sprinkle top with a little bit of sugar.

bake at 350 for about 7 minutes.

i'm sure there's a way to make these gluten-free, but the cream cheese is really necessary to the recipe. i'll probably do some experimenting when we go gluten-free again and re-post the recipe that way.

in the meantime, enjoy! =)

i was thinking about funnel cake all day today. i blame mrsquizzical. mmmmm. funnel cake.

so i searched for a gluten-free recipe, and found a universal one! \o/

1 1/4 cups flour
     (i used 3/4 cup sweet rice flour & 1/2 cup sorghum flour)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
2/3 cup milk (i used vanilla rice milk)

mix thoroughly and put in a quart size baggie (easier than pouring the batter through a funnel, i think). heat 2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil in a skillet on medium-low. cut a small hole in the corner of the baggie and squeeze batter into the hot oil (in whatever shape you want, however big you want it!) and cook until golden brown on that side (usually about 2 minutes) and then flip it over. cook for another couple of minutes and serve with cherry pie filling and/or powdered sugar on top! or whatever you like on top, really.

the coconut oil will get hotter the longer the pan sits on the stove, so you may find that you'll need to keep turning the heat down lower and lower.

here is a crappy camera phone picture of my half-eaten funnel cake, because i didn't think to take one when it was shiny and whole. oops.




and now? back to real life.

ps i miss you guys.

ha ha, guess what i found? that's right, more mcr photos hidden away on my computer, which i hadn't even bothered to check the first time around. (all the others were from my flashdrive.)

so this is going to be more of a disorganized dump, but you probably won't mind too much.

extra photos for you!Collapse )

so miss_diverse is just now getting into mcr and she mentioned needing 'a picspam that tells the story of my chem'. so i showed her this and this. my two favorites.

and then.

AND THEN.

she gave me something else to address when she said something to the effect of 'i have never thought of frank that way', because o_O. and i got all *flappy hands* and i said, 'clearly you have not seen enough frank!' so my original intention behind this picspam was to show her frankie in all his glory.

but.

i just love them all so much, you know? i really, really do. it's not fair of me to just post frankie. it's true that i have more pictures of frank and gerard than of any of the others (it is massively, vastly unfair that there aren't more photos of ray and bob out there), but i just can't not include them.

so what we've ended up with here is an epically large collection of photos, though i am intentionally leaving out most of the photos in my collection that are covered by the other two picspams, but i may have missed a few (or i just love them too much to care).

and also i will be leaving the captions to a bare minimum; please do not be expecting the kind of cleverness from me as you saw in the abovementioned picspams. =P

also, if you feel the urge to add photos in the comments, PLEASE DO SO. i welcome additions to my collection with open arms. =D

and now, in no sensible order...Collapse )

MCR Icons!

Um, okay. So. I've never posted icons before, but I went through all my MCR photos today and made icons with what I had, and decided it would be nice to share.

Unfortunately, LiveJournal didn't want to cooperate (wouldn't let me put the icons under a cut), so Reni had to come over and help me (HTML code everything all by herself because it looks like Martian language to me). So you can thank her for actually bringing the icons from my computer to the internet.

I have kind of a little thing for both Frank and Gerard, so there are going to be way more of them than everyone else. Sorry about that.

I know we all probably have pretty much the same pictures, but hopefully there are some that you haven't acquired yet. Anyway, enjoy. I hope.

The conclusion!
 

Title: This Doesn't Need to be the End
Author: Barmy Bunk
Rating: Mild NC-17
Summary: 14,000+ words. Harry and Ron struggle with the death of their dearest friend in the aftermath of the final battle. Canon compliant until the end of OotP - AU 6th year. I feel the need to point out that Fudge is still minister, but it isn't really all that relevant.
Warnings: Language, Slash, Character Death. Also, it's a bit dramatic and angsty.
Pairing: Harry/Ron
Beta: The great and all-powerful [info]reni_days, who always saves me from disaster.


Part I is here.

It's finally finished!  Thank Merlin and Reni for that, folks, because it's been like three weeks of nothing else, and I honestly didn't think it was ever going to be done.  It's my first completed fic, so try to take that into consideration when you're reading it!  ;)
