But first, I wanted to let you all know that my SECOND rice krispies experiment was a rousing success. I melted 3 tbsp of butter and 4 cut up peanut butter cups in a double boiler and used it as the base sauce to melt the marshmallows. Used about 15oz of marshmallows and a box of rice krispies. They came out a lot stickier off the bat and are staying together, and they have a nice subtle peanut butter cup taste too which is fab. I'd seen some recipes online that basically put an entire layer of reese's cups in between krispies layers; that really wasn't what I was looking for. I was looking for chocolate-peanut butter infused treats, and these came out great.

Right, Doctor Who:

So I don't really have a lot to say about these last few episodes. I liked them in that they were entertaining, but wow they were pretty dark weren't they?

Um, anyhow. I'm sure there is more I was thinking about. but that is plenty long innit?

In other news, as I was writing this and not folding the basket of unmatched socks on the couch, I saw TinyCat going to check it out as cats are wont to do with laundry baskets. "Oooh, maybe I can see into it... or jump... or..." I looked down and then 5 seconds later heard a THUMP.
Yeah...Collapse )

(copypasta from nonelvis) To get rid of the strip with the Stan Lee ad -- here's how you can turn it off everywhere. Go to http://www.livejournal.com/manage/settings/?cat=extensions, where there will be a checkbox near the bottom of the page reading "bottom information strip." Uncheck the box, and the ad will disappear.

Maggie Stables, the actress who played Sixth Doctor audio companion Dr. Evelyn Smythe, passed away on September 26 after an illness. I liked Evelyn a lot as a companion, and ghost2 has compiled A pretty comprehensive list of Evelyn Smythe audios, art, fanfic, icons, wiki entries, and creativity. She will be missed.
