The Danish Council for Safer Traffic are running a campaign to "drive while you drive". Tired old memes become fresh again in translation!

[personal profile] blnchflr and [personal profile] calvinahobbes have reinflamed my passion for cheesecake by baking a wonderfully delicious snickers cake for our meet up. I've been experimenting with different cheeses ever since. Made a good one, except for sligtly too much vanilla. Made a too flan-y one with cottage cheese. Made a very good one with chocolate cream cheese, but I had used up the sturdy paper cups and the flimsy ones I had left over collapsed and poured chocolate cheese cake all over my oven. (It seemed more sensible to experiment with small batches in cupcake cups.)

[personal profile] lysanatt was a pleasure to get to know, and it was amusing to learn we had more people in common than we knew.

[personal profile] oneiriad inspired me with her new job, and I used her as an example of a successful networker at work. Everyone was suitably impressed.

[personal profile] calvinahobbes recommended the vid Jag Svär, and I enjoyed it thoroughly this morning. I never thought I would like that song, but the vid uses an excellent cover.

[personal profile] kabal42 handsomely modeled one fantastic Tony shirt after the other, and also dramatically displayed some really good art when his Tony poster jumped off the wall and assaulted [personal profile] lysanatt, so I've been catching up on Iron Man comics for a few days now.

I told a guy at work, and he sneered that he finds superhero comics very unrealistic. "Yes, indeed. Magic ponies are much more realistic," I said. He said that yes, they are. He's kind of right. He also says that I am a brony like him, but I'm not so sure about that. Being a brony involves a certain degree of brodudeness, I think?

For some strange reason [personal profile] exeterlinden and [personal profile] ximeria have not provoked any new activities in me this week, even though I enjoyed their company very much.

Oh gosh I love this post. Everything about it is making me :D :D :D (Well, except for the cheesecake teasing. That part is definitely making me go >:o( I think it is very unfair to just post about cheesecake like that.)

I should maybe link to Jag Svär. I have so many posts I need to make.

I never knew the poster fell on snapelike!!! Good thing it wasn't actual glass or it would have been even heavier.

Superheroes are SO unrealistic, it is true! However, I am not sure I believe magic flying talking ponies are less so? But my understanding is that true bronydom requires not so much a specific set of chromosomes but more of a specific way of approaching and participating in the fandom? Not brodudeness, more like a scary earnestness?

I am happy to read about your cheese cake experiments - I've thought about the cupcake cups, too, though I haven't solved the logistics of the bottom crust: How did you do it?

I am also determined to perfect the snickers cheesecake, because I know I can make a better one - less peanuts in the crust (though I liked the peanut sprinkles on top), less baking time, a milder caramel sauce. It wasn't too chocolately for me, because things can't be, but I understood it was for you? I think I'd keep it as chocolately, but maybe it also needs something to off-set the chocolate. I had thought about doing the usual sour creme topping, and will maybe test that next time.
