your dose of random for the day

1) I learned that shed hair (meaning, the "root" isn't there) only has mitochrondrial DNA in it, not nucleic (what would be in your blood, bone, tissues, etc) DNA.

2) I am attempting to make my own starter (like sourdough starter) with wild yeast in the air. This is day 1, so we'll see how it goes. Since yeast is everywhere, it stands to reason that eventually you can "capture" it and make your own starter. That's how our forebears did it, so I'm going off an old recipe from a cookbook found in Navoo in a Mormon settlement (where they lived before being pushed out to Utah.)

I have a few tablespoons of whole grain flour (I'm using spelt. If that fails, I'll use some rye.) mixed with a few tablespoons of fruit juice. I'll add that to the mix every day at the same time and see if I can't get some wee beasties to grow. I used to have starter from my grandma that was 30+ years old. Holy smokes, was that the best damn sourdough bread of your life...

3) I heard a clip of Tyler Hoechlin sighing the word "fuck" into a mic and now I'm pregnant. That is just how damn masculine that guy is. [I am not actually pregnant. But I would like to practice getting that way with him. DON'T MAKE THIS WEIRD.]

4) The kids are back in school now (second week!) and I'm trying to get my footing on a routine again, and I have GOT to schedule time to write without distractions. It'll take me a few days to get the hang of it, but I need it. NEED.

5) I also need a way to become independently wealthy straight away. Feel free to offer me tips. (I already have "hooking" at the top of my list. Plus, who doesn't want to lay down on the job? Bonus: no need to buy a uniform.)

6) I WOULD LIKE TO GO SPEND SIX WEEKS TRAMPING AROUND THE COUNTRYSIDE. Any country's side, really. Backside especially. I'M LOOKING AT YOU, SPAIN *eyebrow waggle*

I might be going insane. Or I'm hungry. One of those things.

It's been too long since we had a dose of random from you.

I am in the most ridiculously good mood today, it's CRAZY. <3
Sep. 3rd, 2013 06:26 pm (UTC)
I think EVERYONE is pregnant from hearing that from Tyler. *sigh*
Sep. 3rd, 2013 06:33 pm (UTC)
I love it when good boys do something naughty. LOVE. IT. *fans self*

Your ridiculous mood of random is totally catching. I hope the pregnancy isn't.

I want six weeks tramping about anywhere but here. Hell it is hot and I am well sick of it.

Yay to school being back in session, myriad emails and phone calls not withstanding.

Don't listen to that link, then. Instant preggo. EVEN MPREG IS POSSIBLE. (hahaha)

Man, I have some serious wanderlust right now. Like I could reasonably head out the door with a fresh change of britches, my wallet, passport and phone and just happily tramp around where the wind takes me. WHY CAN'T I JUST DO THAT?

Why did I not know about this Tyler Hoechlin person? He makes my loins tremble.

Being a hooker sounds like too much work. I'd rather just be a kept woman. I am officially tired of working.

OooooOooooh, R. Get thee to the Netflix and start watching Teen Wolf. You'll watch for the Tyler, and stay for the Dylan. *points to icon*

I would like to be a kept woman, too. I should have married an 80 year old with a trust fund and a bad ticker.

That's hot.

So, hearing the expression of getting pregnant from a voice will always remind me of Sir Jorah, thanks to you. Check out Game of Thrones Epic Rap on You Tube.

There are several hilarious moments, but the part with Sir Jorah almost made me choke on my drink!

Yeah, that man slays me just by EXISTING, and then he does something like that? UNFAIR. ;)

My hair is falling out at a rapid and worrying pace because of the extreme weight loss. At this rate I'll be bald by my wedding. Getting ready to start Rogaine.
Sep. 4th, 2013 12:24 pm (UTC)
AHHH!!! Rogaine worked for my MiL after her many chemos and for my cousin who just started losing her hair for no known reason.

I HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU, TOO. If only so you feel like the beautiful bride we already know you are. <3

6) I WOULD LIKE TO GO SPEND SIX WEEKS TRAMPING AROUND THE COUNTRYSIDE. Any country's side, really. Backside especially. I'M LOOKING AT YOU, SPAIN *eyebrow waggle*

This sounds like a good plan and I hope you can make it happen. =)
Sep. 4th, 2013 12:25 pm (UTC)
Oh yes, it would be AWESOME, but it's not going to happen! :D Stupid kids needing me to feed and clothe them and stupid college funds needing to be fed....

30+ year sourdough starter! Damn. Mine has passed the 13-year mark, but clearly I need to aim higher.
Sep. 4th, 2013 05:23 pm (UTC)
Mormon pioneers take that stuff seriously! :D 13 years is pretty dang impressive in my book, btw. Oooh, I bet that makes some good breadstuffs.
Sep. 5th, 2013 03:22 am (UTC)
It makes EXCELLENT breadstuffs -- sandwich bread, country-style bread, oatmeal bread for toasting, biscuits, cherry rose rolls, apricot twists. Om nom nom.
Sep. 7th, 2013 04:23 pm (UTC)
I <3 your random :)
That Hoechlin clip, damn, that is all. I started watching Teen Wolf for him, but now I am irrationally fixated on Dylan because how can you not be.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
