Oven dried tomatoes I made the other day with some of our super-abundance of CSA heirlooms. They're already gone, they were so good!

Normally I'm not a fan of those aspirational images where... say... a cat is looking in the mirror and seeing the lion he aspires to be. But I really dig this one.

You know why? Because a pawn can actually make it to where the king sits and become one of the other pieces. It's difficult. It doesn't happen to every pawn or even most pawns, but it is possible. A cat will always be a cat and never, ever a lion no matter how hard he wishes or how fervently he believes in himself.

Also, it is worth noting that even in its current form, that pawn can potentially destroy a king. It's not as powerless as it might think it is.

I feel like this is the kind of information you think you'll never need. Until something unforeseen happens that makes you go "shit, I'm glad I knew that". #LifeHacks

Yummy tacos Seth made with some leftover chuck roast I made a couple nights ago and some Danish bleu cheese leftover from our Midsummer house picnic on Saturday. Also white onion and cucumber from our CSA. #ThisIsHowYouLeftover #CSA

I don't get people that whine and complain when other people are reluctant to just give away valuable information they've learned through actual hard work and experience. I get it even less when they're confused as to why.

It's like... fuck no, I'm not going to just tell you how to do something it's probably taken me a lifetime to learn myself. I'm certainly not going to tell you how to do it exactly the way I do it. I'll either charge you for the privilege of learning it from me or I'll tell you to fuck off because I don't want you copying me. Probably the latter.

No one likes the person that expects to be allowed to copy off of another person's paper in school. If it's important enough to you, do the work yourself.

Tell me the truth or tell me nothing at all.
I respect people who tell me the truth....

Ah, a cephalopod I hadn't heard of yet. It's been a while since I discovered a new creature to love.
That feeling when you remember your scientific name is Wunderpus photogenicus. This stunning cephalopod has returned to our Tentacles exhibition! Learn more about the wunderpus: http://mbayaq.co/1Pvs2ww
