Anyone experienced baking with coconut?

I am trying to figure out how this bread is made:

If anyone knows a handy trick or two, I would be so grateful! :)

There is no need for this

This here, people, is the reason that I rarely shop online, even though I really, really want to. =/

This is for the exact same item from the exact same shipper...... Not cool. =/

Chalk That One Up To Experience

Hmm, well, it seems plastic jars cannot go in the dishwasher.

A New Community

Hey! I've created a new Community that everyone is welcome to come check out! I felt like talkin' Tolkien and looked around LJ for a good Tolkien community to join, but all that I could find seemed to be devoted exclusively to fanfiction. I have nothing against fanfics, but I was hoping for a place to discuss his works, say what we love about them, ask questions, share artwork *and* fanfiction, and since there didn't seem to be any, I've created my own! So feel free to come on down and check out the Tolkien Community.

Woop, books!

Here's what I got with my birthday money (that's right - grown-ups still get birthday money):

I've never read any of these yet, can you believe it?? It is my goal to read and own everything he has written, but some are hard to come by! I still have yet to see anywhere The Adventures of Tom Bombadil, The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth (I don't even know - is this an original work, or one of his translations of an old Norse myth?), or The Road Goes Ever On (what even is this one - I know nothing about it at all!).

So there you have it! I think I will put together a special bookshelf for all my Tolkien books... I just need to remember where they all are... I have moved too many times in the last decade... X_X


That Voice Keeps Callin'...

There's a voice that keeps on calling me
Down the road, that's where I'll always be.
Every stop I make, I make a new friend,
Can't stay for long, just turn around and I'm gone again

Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down,
Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

Down this road that never seems to end,
Where new adventure lies just around the bend.
So if you want to join me for a while,
Just grab your hat, we'll travel light, that's hobo style.

Maybe tomorrow I'll want to settle down,
Until tomorrow, the whole world is my home.

So if you want to join me for a while,
Just grab your hat, we'll travel light, that's hobo style


I think I'm going to come back here permanently. I'm going to try! Facebook is such a headache, it makes me sad. T_T I just need to remember how to post interesting content.... hmmmm..........! >dies<
Quick, someone say something to me!!

GoDance - Who thinks my cat is cute??

Hello! As you might or might not know, I have been for the last three years totally addicted to the game/sim-type MMO thing, GoPets.
Well, they recently added a really really fun mini-game type thing called GoDance that is so cute, and you must try it if you can. ^_^ Or at least enjoy this photo of my kitty dancing. :D

Dancy!Collapse )

You can play by yourself or against 3 other people online. When you play, you can win prizes and items for use with your GoPets account, like clothing or... chickens. :D I won a rare cow a few days ago. XD Here he is!

Graffiti Cow!Collapse )




Here's the GoDance website... it has better screenies than I took. =3
