Tikikaiju

A while back I posted a picture of a bamboo picture frame that I'd made. When I'm done this blind lizard painting, I'm going to finally get around to painting the tikikaiju, so I did a sketch for it this afternoon. Something like this I think…

Saira came over to say hello to Nefarious and bring over the doll her and Michael got her on their trip to Cuba, so we cooked three pizzas for supper. Nefarious made the dough (with some help of course) and we each decorated our own pizzas. Pizza is super simple to make… Not that this is a recipe, but I don't use recipes, especially for something as simple as this. Even if you've never cooked before in your life you should be able to make pizza…

A couple cups of lukewarm water with a little sugar or honey. Some yeast.
Let it activate, say four or five minutes.
Add some flour.
Spice the dough if you want to… today I used sea salt, pink pepper, dried sweet pepper, paprika, chives, and various other things. Or nothing if you prefer.
Mix in more flour, switch to kneading when needed, adding more flour as required to make it a solid doughball.
Knead it until it's not sticky and if you push your finger into it, the depression mostly bounces back out.
Let it rise for a couple hours.
Roll it into a pizza shape and put it on a pizza tray, cookie tray or whatever.
Preheat your oven to about 400 degrees.
Put whatever you like on your pizza.
Put it in the oven, preferably on a stone, but no big deal if you don't have one.
Bake it for 15-20 minutes.
Eat it.

I've been hearing more and more about how Iraq is intended to be a neverending war… to say nothing of upcoming war with Iran, and who knows what with Russia as tensions increase with Russia again flying nuclear bomber missions at the edge of EU territory. Insane. Just insane.

Like I posted a few days ago, if the major nations of the world simply cut back about 25% of their defense budgets, every person could have free food, free healthcare, and free university education without raising taxes. It's mind-bendingly sad and frustrating to think that we've collectively decided that pointless war is more important than food, health, and knowledge.

There's so much wealth on this planet. If we just stopped fighting over hording needlessly large scraps of it for ourselves, squandering the resources in the process on something that benefits no one, every person in this world could live in luxury…

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
