Random Thursday (ˈrandəm ˈTHərzdā): the day on which Sarah plunks down all the odd bits and pieces she’s been sent by friends or has otherwise stumbled upon this week in an effort to avoid writing a real post, the assembly of which usually ends up taking twice as much time as sitting down and creating actual content.
Subtlety is for the Birds
But not this one.

If Steampunk Trek fanfic wasn’t already a thing

The Raining Beauty

The girls and I had pancakes for dinner the other day
and I used Jane’s batter

so I decided to stretch my repertoire
and made a happy monkey.

he said, “Wow! You’re really getting good at that!”
I was pretty pleased, before I realized that he was looking at it upside-down.
But then I thought,
it takes some serious mad skillz
to make a reversible happy monkey pancake
without even knowing it.
