not hanging with my friends once and awhile has taken my conversations with my cat to a whole new level, and i have consumed a heroic amount of alcohol this week. 3 fifths of woodford reserve and 4 six-packs of various beers. alcohol has become boring.

social distancing is going good so far.

My cats were super excited the first week I was home all the time. That excitement has turned into you're sitting on my chair/spot on the sofa/spot on the bed/how dare you use the kitchen when I come to eat type meows.

I bought a tandoori chicken spice mix from an indian store but I couldn't get the chicken right, probably something to do with the fact that my oven does not reach 1200 degrees

You need some kind of grill rack OP. If you line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a grill rack over it, you have all you need to make tandoori whatever.

parchment under the broiler seems not ideal?


I wouldn't use the broiler for this, I generally just put it the oven at 425 until it looks done.

i realize this morning my daughter has a dairy allergy and my wife cannot handle tandoori spiciness thus I will not be in a position to act on this tip for one million years

I'm vegan so I don't eat dairy. I've been using this lady's
yogurt recipe for a while and it's been pretty good for when I get the craving for something tandoori or tikka masala style. It's also pretty easy to make. Alternatively you can get vegan yogurts but most of them are pretty weird tasting imo.

cayenne and/or red chili powder, for that red color

i’ve only ever had it as a spicy (but not insanely spicy) dish in canada, from central to east

If you have an indian store in the area try some kashmiri chilli powder. Generally indian recipes use both regular and kashmiri chilli powder. The regular chilli powder gives food more spice, and the kashmiri chilli powder is mostly there for the color and it has a very slight spiciness.

and for soap, proraso is fine in the tube, but taylor of old bond street eton college owns, as does jack black triple cushion - but i have sensitive skin and curly hair so i get ingrowns easily

also i really like bay rum for aftershave, it makes you smell like a barbershop. i like owning my face with this


:hmmyes: I love the tobs sandalwood shaving cream.

I used to really like personna razor blades when I was in college, but their recent quality has been extremely hit or miss. Astra and feather blades have pretty good for the most part.

I was just in station square since we were out cycling and a car full of boomer ladies stopped to ask me how to use the gate card thing at the lot because they went to “the restaurant” and the card validation wasn’t working. Who the gently caress is dumb enough to eat out right now, today?

I told her it wasn’t my gate, I didn’t know, and she got all mad lol

I drove by both the ikea, and the mall when I was out grocery shopping today. Both parking lots were absolutely packed. :psyduck:

I double checked mine and it's gone up 60%. It's about the same as the actual good schools in VA. I also went to a school that has gotten millions of dollars of donations from big companies in the area and often farmed out students to these companies.

4-8 weeks ago I was going to different churches and temples every week just to maybe find some friends. It was all just 55+

nothing wrong with 55+ but it wasn't the demographic I had in mind.

ever since the mandatory mask poo poo came in I stopped trying or visiting anything. Sitting in the library for a few hours maybe hoping that one day a good opportunity might be maybe possibly worth attempting to make a friend was another thing to try but not anymore.

Adult art classes might have been nice idea to try but lol everything is hopeless.

If you have the space and your living space allows, get a pet. Even something small like a rat or hamster to interact with would be good. I would have blown my brains out by now if I didn't have my cats.

I was a stupid 4chan kid growing up and saw my fair share of death videos. As a kid i'd watch with a morbid curiosity but now those type of things just absolutely break me.

I'm constantly blown away by how many people talk about high-school as if it was the best years of their life

it's not just a pop culture trope, it is a real thing that I encounter regularly

like seriously dude, it was at most 10% of your life and you were a lovely teenager

in my experience all of the people that are like this are boomers or gen-xers
