    Hi Blade!

    I'm not sure if you're still interested in ideas for cooking still but I thought I'd pitch in. Have you ever heard of Alton Brown? He has a show called Good Eats on the Food Network and talks about the chemistry behind cooking. It's borderline cheesy (and by borderline, i mean incredibly so) but I thought it might be a nice suggestion considering. He'll basically take something simple like making scrambled eggs and explain that if you cook them too fast the protein will denature instead of coagulate, which causes the eggs to lose the liquid inside it that gives it flavor. I thought perhaps you might like an analytical perspective of cooking, and the majority of his easy recipes could be adjusted for the little guy or even a cool teaching tool as he ages.

    I just wanted to add I hope you continue to stick around. Your posts are always interesting and helpful!

    Hi blade. I just wanted to say thanks for all the help you've given me in chosing names for my characters. I'm sure I'll get better at naming the more I write and the more time I spend on this site.

    That is probably one of most terrible fake stories we have seen around here, it makes me sad that someone would make up such a lie when it truly happens to young girls all the time!

    Fyi user appy is a fake. She originally posted under username rainbows, then got called out, and then came on as appy and apologized for her 'friend' that stole her story of rape/whatever and blah blah blah. The admins deleted that thread so many people might have missed it. I've reported her yet again. I recall you being one of the main people calling rainbows out, thought you ought to know!

    Your box was full so....

    It's hard, as that's her name, laxative connection or not. It's actually pronounced SAY-na, not Sen-na, but we figured Sen-na is easier to recognize, and secondly someone likened Say-na to Neveah and I just about died! I think Say-na will just be a nightmare her whole life correcting people over and over. Maybe you have an opinion on this?

    I am still considering all the possibilities-- but court is quickly approaching, and we'll need a name. I am taking your advice into consideration. Thanks for responding!
