Rainbow Hasselback Potatoes…RECIPE
Hasselback potatoes (named after the restaurant at the Hasselbacken Hotel in Stockholm, Sweden) are a showstopping cross between thick-cut fries and loaded baked potatoes. They have the same appeal as pull-apart bread – ripping off pieces is irresistible! Each piping hot potato piece is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
- Red: Diced tomato
- Orange: Diced orange peppers
- Yellow: Cheddar cheese (We think of cheddar cheese as orange, but if you look at the image above, you’ll see that the cheddar is very yellow when compared to the orange peppers.)
- Green: Sliced green onions
- Blue: Blue cheese (Natural blue foods are hard to come by. Sure, blue cheese doesn’t look all that blue, but blue cheese with potato is a winning combination.)
- Purple: Red onion (This is another funny one. Red onions are really purple.)
These are just some of the many ways members of the LGBT community identify themselves in a beautiful photo series from San Francisco-based photographer Sarah Deragon.
Deragon’s “The Identity Project” has taken her around the country as she “seeks to explore the labels we choose to identify with when defining our gender and sexuality.” Her portraits show the amazing diversity and vibance of a queer community that for too long has been defined by outsiders.

Your answer about Moffats writing and narrative was spot on. One major problem I have with him is that he TELLS us what to feel in so obvious a way. That, coupled with his constant “hey time to bring people back from the dead” makes it really difficult to get attached to his characters. Like compare Donnas exit to Amy and Rory jumping off that roof - Donna was able to live a full and happy life and it was still sadder because you KNEW that they’d survive, even though they said they might not.
Thank you :-).
I agree. He makes dramatic events happen but he never makes them permenent - people die but they always come back to life, people lose someone but they forget or they never really seem to care. It’s hard to empathise with his characters because they don’t really have struggles - they’re always resolved by the end of the episode.
Donna’s ending was sadder than Amy and Rory’s because with Donna, the audience had watched her grow and change and enjoy life, so when her memories were taken away then we knew exactly what was being lost, which was the tragedy (even though she had a stereotypical happy ending - no one died, she fell in love and got married and won a lot of money). Meanwhile, Amy and Rory didn’t really show anything that made their ending very sad (especially Amy). Rory’s separation from his father would be painful, and Amy would miss the Doctor, but their ending seemed to be mostly happy (but in a different place than they’d have chosen) than sad.
When RTD’s companions left, it was after a huge emotional change - Donna lost the self she valued, Martha stood up to the Doctor and put her emotional health first, and Rose grieved the loss of the person she loved (who had changed her life and shown her her purpose). But Amy and Rory didn’t have that, except that Amy finally chose between two men, which she’d done many times before.
It’s a week late, but here it is: Edit-A-Month/Editwrimo/Rewriteathon month! Here’s how it will work: because editing is different from drafting, I’ll make three posts a week focusing on various aspects of it. Each week will have a tentative theme:
- Week 1: Getting Started
- Week 2: I Hate Everything Why Am I Doing This
- Week 3: Keeping On Track
- Week 4: When to Stop/Will It Ever Stop?
They’ll be three more posts this week, but to get started, let’s look at the difference between editing and rewriting:
This song makes me want to step on a thousand shirtless men while wearing high heals
Hmm weird how Tumblr loves this but Blurred Lines is a no no….hmmm…odd…
song about violently murdering males = great wonderful catchy funny empowering
blurred lines = literally rape, ban it everywhere and murder robin thicke
are you like completely ignoring the context of this song? it’s a song from a film about women in jail for murder. it’s not just a song played on the radio for money/lolz like “hahahaha let’s kill all men”. the film itself is placed in a PRISON and it’s about pop culture how it can make anyone a start, even murderers.
blurred lines is a song made by a person living in a culture that makes it ok to sexually assault women. that song is so ok that it is played over and over again in the radio. our culture made it ok to make a guy that writes a song about literal sexual assault a star. only this time, it’s not a film, it’s real life.
i was waiting for someone to correct this thank you friend
No one’s saying we should fake being barbers and start selling people as food, either. Context seems kiiiiiinda important
ATTENTION ALL GIRLS: We ALL know that the lower stomach is one of the very hardest places to burn fat and tone.
These are some terrific exercises to do in the morning and at night to burn those hard to tone areas!
Do this every morning when you wake up, and every night before you sleep. I guarantee you’ll see results in a week flat!
Liking and reblogging for future reference!
Oh man, my old soccer coach used to make us do the top left one
Used to do these in ballet class.
Great way for us art vampires to stay in shape!
Or if you just want reference for drawing characters exercising.
these are pretty good for anyone to do really 8D
Someone explain to me exactly what that lower left one is doing…
It’s called a plank. Try it, and you’ll see (or rather feel). Very effective! :)
