Something I never thought I'd live to see in my lifetime! On the crowded train station two girls were making out and not a single person made it a problem! :o Maybe we have finally started to evolve as a society, who knows, though just in the deep country.

Despite only having one day off I accomplished a lot. I paid the bills, did laundry, did the grocery shopping and finished what I wanted to design and code in my game. :)
Why are you?

I successfully made pasta for the first time in my life, and nobody died or was horrifically burned.

My kitchen is still standing.

The only unpleasantness involved was how uncomfortable it was to stand over a pot of boiling pasta water to stir it for any period of time in this heatwave. :runaway:

You typically don’t need to stir pasta except just after putting it in, if you have enough water to pasta ratio and have it boiling rapidly enough.

And yes I needed to google it. :shifty:

I cheat everytime, heat the hob while I boil a kettle of water, add the boiled water to the pasta, put it on the hob and fuck off for an indeterminent amount of time.

Its usually done when I return. You only burn it once this way, by letting it boil dry, because the stink is enough, that in future, you have a subconcsious desire to avoid a repeat.

@but it's still a good start Sev and from pasta you can make alot of different meals.

Next up, scrambled egg! :drool:

Scrambled balls, I mean eggs, are easy. Even my Kitchen Incompetenceness can make them without torching the kitchen. :D Just a suggestion: better try pancakes. :)

For years I've been told that the #2 consumer of gay porn is straight women. Now the the #1 producer and consumer of gay romance literature is straight women.
I just watched an interesting documentary on the topic...

What are your thoughts on why you think this is.

Oh I can already make scrambled eggs.

They're not great scrambled eggs because I can't seem to get the texture entirely spot on, but I can make them and they taste fine and go very well on toast.

Well I know what got me proud of my friends kid. Their special needs child was going on himself and we've wondered if it was PTSD types of deal or maybe autism. Well cps took the kids and is being looked after by my friends sister and their mother. Apparently due to the kids diet he's had trouble with accidents and stuff. Now that they changed his diet he's been going by himself and isn't constipated. We wonder if it's really because he couldn't feel it. Either way I'm proud of him.

Having a FitBit gives such a weird sense of achievement.

Like, fuck yeah I walked 12,000 steps today. I mean sure it was just a normal work day so I probably do that every day I'm at work but actually seeing it all counted up like that just makes me feel good about myself for achieving something.

I am still worried that this thing can't seem to detect a heartbeat in my wrist though...

Is the strap tight enough? The sensor needs to be pushed up against the skin pretty well, especially if it's one of the smaller models.

It's as tight as it was Sunday and it picked up my heartbeat then. Just yesterday it just stopped reading it.

Have you checked your reflection in a mirror since then?

I have a bio watch that does the same thing. It works well with improving the mindset. :)
