left it all behind

(no subject)

So, I'm really sorry I didn't update the list the way I said I would...I lost my job on Friday--I was the last teller to leave on Friday, and I was called into a manager's office on my way out the door and summarily relieved of my position and my keys--and at first I was in shock and then I was trying to figure my RL out. That's not really an excuse to not follow through on my promises, it doesn't impact my ability to do the things I said I would, I was just...really preoccupied once it happened. I'm sorry! I will definitely get the masterlist for RayV Day updated as soon as possible!

Ray Vecchio Cookbook!

Hey guys! As you may or may not remember, someone made a cookbook last year for their RayV Day contribution, and they've inspired me! I would like to do a collaborative community project again, but this year I want to do a cookbook! So please please please email, PM, etc me any and all recipes you have that remind you of Ray Vecchio or something he could have eaten once upon a time (I’m betting Fraser’s made him one or two dishes throughout their friendship!) so I can put a bunch of them together into a due South virtual bar official Ray Vecchio cookbook! \o/  They don’t have to be especially complicated, just complete!

Obviously everyone will be credited for their own contribution! Hopefully the end product will be like one of those cookbooks where Marcy from Iowa has the best potato stew recipe and Judy from New York has amazing dumplings and so on. Feel free to write a little blurb about your recipe and/or RayV’s feelings about or experiences of it, but you don’t have to! Just the recipe on its own would be fantastic!

Thank you!

Ray Vecchio Day Fest Announcement!



Here comes Ray Vecchio Day!

As you may remember, we had a fest last year to celebrate RayV’s semi-canonical birthday, September 21st, and I’m pleased to announce that the fest will be running again this year! There are once again very few guidelines, but here are the rules, such as they are:


  • Please use the tags “Ray Vecchio Day” and “dsvb challenge” so I can find you.

  • All entries must be in celebration of Ray Vecchio from due South or, at a stretch, the actor who portrays him, David Marciano.

  • All entries must be shareable–locked vids must provide passwords, etc.

  • Entries must not be offensive or derogatory. I realize this is somewhat vague, but please use your best judgment and when in doubt, ask me!

  • This is a multi-platform fest, and absolutely feel free to post wherever and do whatever you like! But please plan to either email or PM me a link to your work if you post someplace other than to tumblr, our lj comm, or the fest’s ao3 collection. If you do something IRL (cosplay, lego, etc), please plan to send me a link to pictures/a write up OR to send them directly to me so I can post them for you!

  • Feel free to contact me at dsvirtualbar.tumblr.com or twitter.com/thisaintbc if you have any questions or concerns.

  • We go live on September 21st!

I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Mission's Ultra Fancy Valentine's Day Champagne Cake

A day late and a dollar short, because I was still messing around with the recipe yesterday. Please note that there are still some measurements that I’m a little shaky on, as I only just finalised this recipe, so you may need to play with the champagne and the flour.

Cake:

Filling:

Frosting:

For my frosting I just did a pretty standard American buttercream with a touch of rose water and some pink food dye, but I think anything lightly floral would work well with the cream-and-fruit-and-wine combo that’s going on here. I drizzled just the tiniest touch of melted white chocolate in a sort of random pattern on top, but I think topping with fruit would’ve been a better touch.

Notes:

If you make it, please let me know! I’d love to hear back from you on this one, especially about the aforementioned shaky measurements.

C6D Flower Crown Day Approacheth!

Flower Crown Day is going to be next weekend! Last year we talked about how having it on a set day wasn't really working, so I'm making this post now for two reasons: one, as a sort of forewarning that it's coming up, but second to ask you guys if Friday, Saturday, or Sunday would work best for you? Let me know in the comments below; if there isn't any sort of clear leaning amongst us, I'll just plan on Saturday and use that date in the upcoming announcement banner thing!

We just had a bit of scare and, without going into too much detail, it was definitely a wake-up call. Time and past to get myself back in shape, I think; I've never been any kind of Hollywood skinny, but until now I've always been physically capable of most anything asked of me.

Christmas Comes This Time Each Year

Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate it! I hope the holidays are wonderful and beautiful and fun and enlivening--or any of the above--for you this year, and that the gifts and the laughter are both bountiful and heartfelt. I hope that your friends and family make your holiday brighter, and that the long weekend doesn't hurt. I hope that the weather is exactly the way you want it and the hot chocolate is even better.

Here's the list I made last year of some of my favorite Christmas songs; please enjoy if that sounds like something you might be interested in! (Note that I say that something comes from the film White Christmas, but it actually comes from a different movie.)

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

I SAW A STAR WAR

IT WAS SWEEPING AND MAGNIFICENT AND WHEN I SAW THE OPENING CREDITS UP THERE ON THE BIG SCREEN AND HEARD THE MUSIC IN SURROUND SOUND, MY HEART LEAPT UP INTO MY THROAT AND HASN'T COME DOWN YET. I'M.
