Homemade soup is so much better than canned or store-bought soup. Even if it's simple, it seems to taste better. You can also control things like how much salt is put in. So many of the canned stuff has too much salt.Even for me. You can make your own twist on it, too.
The last couple of days have been abnormally cold for us. Felt like my face was frozen after each walk...I got both walks in today, despite the cold! Go me!
In Toshi Densetsu no Onna, the case was about a professor who was trying to make the first automaton or a robot that thinks and feels on its own. He was killed in an accident where he was taking a bath and working on his laptop. He had a device setup so he could work through it while he took baths. This time that device wasn't properly mounted, and the laptop fell in the bathwater. Kind of a sad way to go. He was using his late wife's body to make the robot. His partner in the project is continuing his research. He decided to work on 2 robots, using his partner's body and the wife's that was already being worked on. Kind of freaky.When everyone was gone, they came to 'life' and walked all the way to a gundam statue seeming to be praying to it. At least, they were finally together again...Plus, no one was murdered in this one. In Rurouni Kenshin, they're still battling the gang that's holding Megumi. They made it to the commander at least.
In Hitman Reborn, they started the battles for the guardian rings. Finally made it that far in the manga! It was a pretty cool part in the anime, too. The first round is Ryohei vs Lussuria of Varia for the Sun ring. Sun guardians tend to be very athletic and good with their fists and/or feet. Ryohei's into boxing, and one of the few members in the boxing club at the school. Lussuria's into martial arts. He has a metal knee with a metal plate over it. The match was in a boxing ring with lights shone on it as bright as the sun. Lussuria has sunglasses on, so it's not a problem for him. But, Ryohei's fighting blind. Since it's made to be like a fake sun around them, it can burn them as well as dehydrate them. (Which is what's happening in the pic. He also punched Lussuria's metal plate, that's why he's bleeding.) Later, in the story with the anime, Varia becomes much more likable and don't seem as 'evil'. I like Lussuria even if he's a bit 'odd'. He's very flamboyant. I started liking Ryohei more during the fight, too. He's an amazing fighter.
Started writing the 6th story to my nightmare anthology. I'm starting it off seemingly innocent. Although, the idea itself sounds freaky. Later, it might be hard to write since it's so gruesome.But, hopefully I can muddle through it.
Played my clarinet. Did some advanced classical solos and jazz tunes. Only a few mistakes this time. Not bad. Better than when I played last Saturday. On Saturday I managed to do it for an hour, but didn't sound that great at the beginning. Hoping to play during the weekends again.
