Happy Friday, everyone! This has been a crappy, anxious, slice your thumb open on a can of hash kind of week, but either Anthony Bourdain's Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook or an uptick in brain chemistry has me full of joie de vivre.

Speaking of food! I made a batch of granola last night, loosely based off of this (Food Network, ha) recipe. I swapped the maple syrup (being out) for equal parts honey and molasses, swapped the vegetable oil for olive oil, and added a large dash of cinnamon. Burnt it a little (being slightly damp in the oven doesn't mean it needs to cook longer), but it's still delicious with plain yogurt and honey. Also dirt cheap - the rolled oats cost me $.27 from Kroger's bulk food bins and I had everything else on hand.

I also made an apple/gouda/prosciutto sandwich for lunch today. It was difficult to not eat it on the spot.

Excellent things on the internet:

* The art of Shintaro Ohata.

* [personal profile] ephemere's gorgeous book of calligraphy. Pre-orders are closed, but she says it'll be available for regular purchase early next year.

* GMHC's I Love My Boo campaign.

* Amanda Conner And Jan Duursema Create Female Superheroes For Nike. On one hand, Nike. On the other, awesome women in practical clothing!

* Kaleidoscope! Signups close tomorrow, so if you're thinking about participating now would be the time.

* The life of Reverend Fred L. Shuttlesworth, Freedom Fighter
