I Am a Pretty Pretty Princess
My Milkshake Brings All the Boys to the Yard
|Bio:||Hello. I'm Stephanie, and this is my journal, and here are my imaginary friends inside of the computer. Some of them may in fact be real outside cyberspace. If you're just joining us, come on in and say hi.|
I write and run larps, do tons of "behind the scenes" work that only shows when it doesn't happen, and occasionally run Intercons. In my spare time (hah!), I relax and pursue an hedonistic lifestyle with my husband in our decaying Edwardian manse. Oh, and I may have a slight, teensy, tiny interest in Thelema. Maybe.
For there is no other way into the Supernal mystery but through her and the Beast on which she rideth.
"That's everything, huh? No weapons, no friends. No hope. Take all that away and what's left?" "Me."
Beauty always comes with dark thoughts.
I am not young enough to know everything.
I only believe in fire. Life. Fire. Being myself on fire I set others on fire. Never death. Fire and life. Les Jeux.
Puritanism: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy.
--H. L. Mencken
Razors pain you.
Rivers are damp.
Acids stain you,
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful.
Gas smells awful.
You might as well live.
Can you hammer a six-inch spike through a board with your penis? A girl's gotta have her standards.
I am here to live out loud.
* 2 cups plus 1 tablespoon flour
* 1 tablespoon baking powder
* 1/2 tablespoon salt
* 8 tablespoons COLD butter or margarine, cut up
* 1/4-1/3 cup sugar (to taste)
* 1 cup cold milk
Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Stir baking powder and salt into flour. Rub in butter (you can use a pastry cutter if you prefer, but I find it works much better if you use your hands). Toss in sugar. Stir in milk. Remove dough from bowl and knead on floured surface 6-10 times. Roll out until 1/4" thick. Cut into shapes. I tend to use a cookie cutter, but you can also pat the dough into rounds about 1/4" thick, and then divide into pie-wedge shapes. Place on cookie sheet and bake 10-15 minutes, until golden brown.
