Messages in a bottle

 Oh dear, I had this blog forgotten, but here's a poem:

I wrote a thousand songs in the sand and the sea took them,
erased my silly words and swallowed the feelings behind them
uncaring of my grief, it drowned the tears I shed
and lay them to rest beneath countless others,
it hid them beneath the earth itself, under sea shells;
and only returned my tears, for the tears are salt
and the sea did not want more of it.

So I wrote again, little nothings and little stories
on and about the exile I was forced to take,
but I would not give them to the sea, for it betrayed me once
and could do so again if it so will it my message would be lost

forever and ever, until the sky above my head collapsed
and shatter me to a thousands of hundreds of pieces,
so I took a bottle and place them there,

corked it and tossed into the sea,
for he could hide those words if it so wanted,
but could not erase the sentiment behind them.

Leah Clearwater: Accidental Sympathetic Character

Summary: A look at Leah Clearwater and the troubles that mark her.
Warnings: Many things will probably make you want to head desk. You have been warned.
Author’s Notes: Oh lord, I had to restrain myself. I really had to. Anyway, commentary and criticism is highly encouraged. Also, this is the first on a series of essays regarding the issues on everything that’s wrong with Twilight.

Ah Leah, poor old, spinster, resentful, reckless and spiteful Leah. Leah, the Bitch. Leah, the one we aren’t meant to like and yet, quite accidentally, we do. Leah, the holder of grudges, Leah the ‘one who ruins things’. Poor thing.

12.- Complications

We did it kids, the last chapter! My snark/commentary is in italics now.

It was oddly consoling to know I wasn’t the only one living out a tragic love story. Heartbreak was everywhere.
 
 
Gee, dramatic much?
But I will say this, poor Angela suffering for Ben… is every female on this series unhappy without a man? Wait, don't answer that. I already know the answer.
 
Geez.

Chapter 11. Interrogations.

And onwards we go, we're down to one chapter left! Also as usual, snark/commentary is in purple.

I’d left Bella’s room less than an hour ago. I was already aching to see her again.

 
You can’t stand an hour away from her? Dude, you’re pathetic. Oh, and by the way, this isn’t romantic at all.

Coconut Cream Pie

 Hi guys! This one of my favorite recipes that I've developed. It's super tasty and it's not overly sweet. And you can really taste the coconut! So I hope you all enjoy!

Ingredients:

1 cup milk 
1 cup coconut milk
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup cornstarch 
1/2 cup sugar 
1/2 tsp. coconut extract
1 cup dried coconut (sweetened or unsweetened it's your choice!)
Favorite crust (I use the graham cookie crust)


How you do it:
  1. In a heavy saucepan, add the milk, the sugar and the cornstarch and mix well, until both sugar and cornstarch has dissolved.
  2. In a cup, mix the coconut milk and the egg yolks together well.
  3. Place the saucepan at medium heat and stir. Incorporate the coconut milk & yolk mixture. Continue stirring until it has begun to thicken.
  4. Keep stirring until all has incorporated well and large bubbles come up to the surface. Remove from fire and add the extract, mix well.
  5. Pass through a sieve to remove whatever lumps are in. Add the dried coconut and mix well.
  6. Place in crust and let it cool for half an hour at room temperature. After that, you can put it in the refrigerator for 4 hours.
  7. Take out of fridge 20 mins before serving.
  8. Enjoy!

10.- Theory

Welcome again, as usual my snark/commentary is in purple.

“I thought we were past all the evasiveness,” she said, her tone critical and disappointed.

 
Dear Bella, you’ve been friends for a grand total of two weeks, maybe? And you just expect him to cough up everything you want to know?
 
Good one.

Yay

 So this week was a special week organized by one of my favorite Star Wars blogs, Spacelatinxs. The thing was to make something using the following prompts: 
  1. Favorite Character
  2. Favorite Relationship
  3. Favorite Line or Scene
  4. Cast
  5. Hero
  6. Legacy
  7. Free Day.

I did for day 1 Cassian Andor. For day 2 I did Jyn & Cassian, for day 3 I used Cassian's "Rebelion's are built on hope." quote. For day 4 I did an edit of Diego Luna, for day 5 I did Poe blowing Starkiller Base, for day 6 I did Shara Bey & Kes Dameron and for day 7 I did my favorite Bail Organa quotes.

I'm quite proud of my work save on day 1, it was rushed and it could have been better, but oh well. And I have to say, it was fun to participate in something that celebrated the Latinx community for once. Specially in Star Wars, so yay.

9.- Port Angels

As per usual, my snark is in purple. Have fun.

Oh man, this chapter doesn’t start well; it starts of course with female cattiness.

 
Bella still looks pissed. Ha ha. I can’t believe she’s so upset about it, though. At least she has a back up date for the prom.

 
Does he think she’s prettier than me? Does she think she’s prettier than me?
Does she really think that? Or does she want me to look like a cow on Saturday.

 
Ahh the fresh smell of female insecurity and cattiness. I love this series. [Mind my sarcasm ladies and gents.]

8. Ghost

And here we go again, as usual, snark & commentary is in purple.

I hovered, invisible in the shadows, where I could follow the object of my love and obsession.

 
Because that is totally not creepy at all.

7.- Melody

And here we go, as usual, my snark/commentary is in purple.

Attraction.
 
Not the same thing as love, but tied up in it inextricably.

 
Edward, you are already in love with Bella, and the attraction you feel is to her bacon scent. After all, you did say she was “interesting” looking. Also, attraction and love aren't tied up.

6.- Blood Type.

And here we go again, good news tho, we're halfway in the book, so yay. As usual, snark in purple.

Not Mike Newton’s eyes, because I couldn’t stand any more of his offensive fantasies, and not Jessica Stanley’s, because her resentment towards Bella made me angry in a way that was not safe for the pretty girl.

 
On Mike: Teenager have hormones, teenager have fantasies. Get the fuck over it, I refuse to believe in all the years that Edward’s been alive he hasn’t “seen” any fantasies… oh wait, my bad. None of those involved Bella.
 

On Jessica: Edward, thoughts and actions are two very different things. Learn to know how to make a difference on that.

5.- Invitation

And onward we go! As usual, snark and commentary in purple.


High school. Purgatory no longer, it was now purely hell. Torment and fire…yes, I had both.

 
Dear Meyer, would you kindly stfu about high school= purgatory/hell? It’s annoying, and your miserable attempt of making a martyr out of Edward is failing miserably. Also, he could drop classes.

Like a stalker. An obsessed stalker. An obsessed vampire stalker.

 
And here, ladies and gentlemen is when the downward spiral begins. Brace yourselves and fetch your liquor of choice.

And on we go with chapter 3, as per usual my snark and commentary is in purple.

"I didn't like feeling a coward," I admitted.

No, the whole issue does not reduce itself at Edward being a coward. But, he is already 'intrigued' with her scent.

2.- Open Book

And here you go everybody, second chapter from hell. As usual, my snark is in purple.

The obstruction was a face, just an unremarkable human face, but I couldn’t quite seem to banish it from my mind.
 

While this quote is completely unremarkable, for me, it signals the obsession he'd develop on Bella. And yes, I'm not afraid to call it obsession.

 
Her thoughts were chagrined.
 

Ah and there it is, Meyer's favorite word.

First Sight

And so, we begin our snark of "Midnight Sun", the book has Edward's point of view - which is nightmarish enough. But luckily, it's only 12 chapters since Meyer threw a hissy fit and didn't finished it. Word to the wise, good luck my friend and good speed when reading.

My snarkery and commentary is in purple. White is actual quotes.

High School. Or was purgatory the right word? If there was any way to atone for my sins, this ought to count toward the tally in some measure.

No. You listen to me you little shit. High school is in no way whatsoever a way to atone your sins. You killed people. You went on a vigilante inspired kills, so excuse me while I don't see it as a way to atone your sins. In fact, nothing and I repeat NOTHING you do comes even close to atoning your sins.

So...

 I was thinking of reposting my "Midnight Sun" snarkery here, but am unsure if I should go ahead and do it. Why? Because the older I get, the more horrified I am at this particular "book"  - ok I'm horrified at the whole series (not a Saga), but Midnight Sun takes the cake thanks to Edward. Seriously, being in his head is unpleasant, but then again, Bella is equally as terrible.

So drop a note if you'd be interested in reading it, to know if I should go ahead and post them again.

Oatmeal Pie (Vegan)

 This is a recipe that I developed after craving something sweet and with banana flavor that wasn't bread. I hope you all enjoy!

Ingredients:


2 1/2 liquid cups banana puree
1/2 cup vegetable oil 
3 cups of oats 
1 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 1/2 cups unsweetened dried cranberries
1  cups raisins
1 cup dried cranberries 

How you do it:

1.- Pre-heat the oven at 350 (175 for some).
2.- In a bowl, add the oats and the oil, mix and add the coconut, cranberries and raisins. Mix well add the banana puree and mix until everything is incorporated.
3.- Let the mix rest for 15-20 minutes.
4.- Pour into mold and make sure all is leveled. If baking in pie or 8x8, bake for 35 minutes rotating halfway through baking. If baking cookies, bake for 10-14 minutes rotating halfway through baking until golden. They will not run or extend.
5.- Let cool, enjoy.
