Their whole “omg we had NO IDEA” defense is so laughable
No but seriously, how does this crap keep getting through?
The Rose Baron: Bourbon Caraway Cocktail
I’m a pretty terrible geek. I’ve seen a lot of anime, but I haven’t really seen most of the Studio Ghibli’s films. KJ has though, and not being one to rewatch films often we’ve been making our way through some of the lesser known ones. Of these our favourite is The Cat Returns. Primarily for the suave cat protagonist Baron Humbert von Gikkingen. Also after watching a lot of Studio Ghibli I’m pretty sure Miyazaki is directly responsible for at least half of the Furries in our current generation.
I wanted to create a cocktail that mimicked the classy aura that the Baron exudes. So I started with my favourite liquor, Bourbon. I used Four Roses for it’s smoothness and also for it’s rye content. Because what goes with Rye? If you follow KJ at Need to Knead you’ll know that Caraway seeds are essential for a nice rye bread. So for my rye cocktail I made a caraway and lemon simple syrup. For some reason the Baron reminded me of a cat version of Tuxedo Mask from Salior Moon, so I thought I’d stick with the rose theme and add in a bit of rose water. The result is a sweet and flowery cocktail with a pleasant bourbon punch.
50ml High rye bourbon or rye whiskey

Quit fuckin differentiating “physical” and “mental” illness like they’re two separate categories.
Your “mind” isn’t a fucking magic aura it’s the product of an organ made of cells that exchange chemicals which is literally all your emotions are. Things go physically wrong with that physical system and need to be treated with
I finally got around to reading Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, and of course I loved it. There’s plenty more I’d like to draw but goodness, there are too many great characters in this book.
I have seen how chub rub can destroy the best pants of our generation.
The struggle is real.
It’s comforting to know this happens to everyone. I thought my thighs were destroying my jeans.
