Food 

Lots of food pictures lately, but I've had plenty of things I've wanted to make. Vegetarian (and I think also vegan?) gyoza, half with tofu and half with mushrooms. Made too much even after putting half of the filling in the fridge for tomorrow (or maybe the day after 😅)

Found sichuan peppers again and it was the last warm day in a while (it's been amazing omg nearly 30C most days and this week!! 😊) , so I made veggie hiyashi dandanmen with plenty of chillies and it was so tasty and numbing and spicy 🤤

Just submitted a new paper to arXiv, the calculation took nearly three years to finish 😌

Throwback to a year ago when my hometown's "unit for uneducated and unemployed youth" contacted me after I was made exempt from national service (trans) because they were worried I'd become socially excluded.

I wasn't part of the youth according to their criteria, I had a job contract with the university and was less than a year away from finishing my PhD.

It's great that they're trying to help people but I feel they might benefit from some extra vetting...

Finished watching Wolfwalkers (from Cartoon Saloon, the secret of kells & song of the sea fame) over discord. The movie was so good, strong, strong recommend, I loved the music as I always do with their films, but it was also nice to watch a movie with friends for the first time in a while, even if just online :)

(Unhealthy) food 

Its Friday and i felt like eating something unhealthy come at me 😤 veggie nachos (beans, meat substitute, cheese and corn and also some pico de gallo)

I saw the first butterfly of the year (peacock butterfly). Spring is hereeee 😊

(the post features probably the best bird picture I've ever taken 💞 )

age poll (don't open its fucking huge it will probably break your browser) 

how old are you? i have included every age, the max range being the age of the oldest person ever recorded plus one and then over, so everyone's age should be on here :)

I decided to binge through a rewatch of Serial Experiments Lain tonight. I've watched it many times but it's still so good.

And lastly, attempting to make pizza myself for the first time since moving here. This was really nice, and I have a ball of dough cold-rising in the fridge waiting for tomorrow ☺️

This is a Nordic dessert (the Finnish version), usually eaten around this time of the year. Sweet bun with thick whipped cream and jam inside.

I intended to make vegan bánh mí (with mushroom paté and tofu), but I underestimated how long the bread would take and ended up taking some shortcuts so that I could eat before 11 PM. It was still tasty, just not really the right texture.

I haven't really been foodposting since the instance I had my food alt on announced it was closing, but here's a thread of a few recent things:
