+ Thank you to [personal profile] oxoniensis for the v-gift and [personal profile] liseuse and amand_r for the holidays cards! ♥

+ Have now finished rewatching All The Avatar. THIS SHOW, I DON'T EVEN. Obviously this was all super serious research for my [community profile] white_lotus assignment and not at all so I could make cooing noises about how much I love everyone and get slightly teary when there are hugs. (Given how frequently there are hugs in this show -- yeah. I have a lot of feelings, okay!) And once again people on the reading list are starting to get into it which makes me gleeful. *smiles winningly at the rest of you*

A question: if you were going to show a few episodes to someone who's never seen it before, what would they be? I'm reluctant to just do early S1 because the show gets so much better after that, but I don't want to pick anything that might be too confusing.

+ So Advent always brings out my latent Catholicism (I know, I know, really it should be Easter that does that, but it's been a while since I was a good Catholic) and I am on the hunt for some choral versions of carols. In particular, could anyone hit me up with a choral version of O Holy Night? I have lovely versions by people like Sufjan Stevens and Josh Groban but would love a more traditional copy.

+ Another request! I am looking for some more baking recipes to add to my repertoire. I do not have any fancy cooking equipment - I pretty much run to some bowls and wooden spoons and a cake tin, and I can't really afford a bunch of expensive ingredients. I am looking for things that are relatively low-carb or can be made so. I swap out sugar for sweetener anyway*, but things like cheesecakes and flourless cakes are awesome, or small things like cookies.

here is the recipe for a flourless chocolate almond cake I makeCollapse )

* Because I'm diabetic, as lots of you know. But here, have a side rant about trying to get low-carb/sugar-free stuff without being subjected to really skeevy marketing. I just want some Tango without it being totally awful for my health, okay, not because I'm on a diet and "it's tastier than liposuction". D: SO MUCH DNW. There are plenty of reasons people avoid sugar, and all of them are equally valid - I'm pretty sure nobody needs that kind of advertising in their face. /o\ (I guess this is 'hipster advertising' or something.)

+ And lastly, I have a thread in the anonymous holiday love meme.
