I hear my mom shrieking downstairs, shouting up to me about “THE CATS! THE CATS!”
I run downstairs, thinking someone has died or something and see THIS:
I FEEL LIKE I NEED TO PUNCH SOMETHING TO GET OVER THE ADORABLENESS
They look like they’re about to break out in a musical number

It’s hot in the kitchen. You know this. Most days it’s fine. Chefs, in general, are a sturdy bunch, and we like to prove how tough we are on those humid days, when a stream of sweat trickles down our spines, even as we stand still, by trading stories of jobs we had that were way worse-no air conditioning, working in an unventilated basement, the summer we spent making pizzas baked in a 500F oven. I’m pretty sure it was a cocky chef who worked the broiler that coined that sentiment “if you can’t stand the heat…” A funny side effect of baking on those sticky days that have us fleeing to the walk-in for relief, is that I completely lose my appetite. And the idea of even just making anything rich and gooey is totally unappealing. On those days I turn to citrus-clean, crisp, refreshing. These lemon crisps are the perfect partner to a fruity sorbet, or alone with a frosty glass of ice tea.
1 1/2 sticks (6 ounces) unsalted butter at room temperature
1/2 cup confectioners sugar, plus more for dipping
Zest of 2 lemons
2 TB lemon juice
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
In a mixer, beat together the butter, confectioner’s sugar and lemon zest, until it’s pale and fluffy. When you beat lemon zest with sugar, it releases the oil in the zest, making your dough extra lemony. Yum!
Beat in the juice and vanilla.
Add the flour and salt, and mix until everything just comes together.
This is a slice and bake style cookie. Roll the dough into a log, or pat it into a pate mold. Chill at least four hours. Slice each cookie so they are 1/4 inch think.
Bake in a preheated 350F oven, and bake until lightly golden-about 15 minutes. Let the cookies cool completely, then dust with powdered sugar.
night vale is full of thought provoking humour and beautifully inspirational monologues but “subway? more like wowza” will always be one of the best things it’s ever come up with
it’s right at the top of the list with “what’s an egg” and “i never knew school cleaning appliances were so strong”
"Mountains? More like nothings"
"Nice try, giant worms.”
"And I was like, whatever, rich guy!”
Remember that time Daleks and Cybermen had sass-off?
THIS IS LITERALLY MY FAVE SCENE FROM DOCTOR WHO EVER I AM NOT EVEN JOKING I AM SO GLAD SOMEONE MADE A POST OF IT I THINK ABOUT THIS MORE OFTEN THAN IS NORMAL UGH IT MAKES ME SO HAPPY
No one sasses better than the Daleks and Cybermen. No one.

Q: If Firefly had gone on longer, what is something you would’ve hoped to have gotten to do with either just Mal or the story in general?
And they’re all beagles, right?
