sarea: (jeremy contemplating)
You guys, this is the best recipe ever posted. You must read the comments. I saw an article on Slate this morning that was all about this recipe, and my coworkers and I have spent the last 30 minutes crying from laughter. No recipe comment stereotype is left unsaid!

I have had a revelation about pour over coffee. Using a gift card that I got last year, I bought all the equipment necessary to make pour over coffee, and stopped by Whole Foods yesterday to buy some single-origin coffee beans. I wasn't sure what to expect, if this would be yet another disappointing hype, or if it'd be amazing. If you like coffee, I think the pour over method is definitely worth it. I can't believe how many flavors I got from the cup of coffee I made last night (though less so with the cup I made this morning, so it's still dependent on the type of coffee). Finally, I know what all those descriptions are talking about, when they say that a particular type of coffee has hints of chocolate/caramel/orange/what have you!

I have beautiful Jeremy Renner images to share with you from Tumblr. You know you want to click. )

So I forgot to mention another teen book that I read recently, maybe because it doesn't belong in the category of "terrible teen lit" that was the theme from yesterday's post. I finally read Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. I enjoyed it. It was well written, which is like, 90% of the battle. BUT. Potentially spoilery. )

*surfaces from Tumblr* Gawd, wading in there is like going into a black hole from which there is little chance for escape.

Anyway. I've been inundated with Renner awesomeness all evening so I think it's only fair to share.

First, this isn't new, but for those of you who haven't seen Sarah Dunn's video of Jeremy from the Empire shoot, you must. It's not embeddable, but you can watch it on her site here. Specifically, the second video (it's only 40 seconds long -- and while you're there you might as well watch the third one too). I absolutely love that the background music is Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, which Jeremy has said would be the song he'd choose if he could listen to only one more song before he died. <3333333 So it's either a freakish coincidence or that's exactly why she chose to use it.


Third, I love these expectation vs reality gifsets. :))))))))))

And fourth, I was forced to create this gifset after watching the Avengers gag reel, followed by Fury talking to the security council. It was just so funny to me, the juxtaposition of Clint being a badass and Jeremy being a derp. Reposted here for your convenience and giggles. )

I wish the last two gifs were higher quality, but I didn't download an HD version of the gag reel (don't know if one existed) before it was taken down from all the obvious places on the internet, and I haven't looked that hard to see if I can find it in hidden corners. If someone actually knows of where I could get it, please tell me!
