Veleda rewrites White Collar

I just rewatched "Forging Bonds." So much potential and yet so flawed. The problem with "Forging Bonds" is that it tries to do way too much, to fit way too much story into one episode. So, below, I explain how I would have done it.

Why Sara Ellis is One of the Most Feminist Characters on TV

I've said multiple times that I consider White Collar to be one of the most feminist friendly shows on TV. It's not perfect, but it has multiple woman characters, with different personalities, desires, and goals, and it doesn't demonize any of them or pit them against each other. And nowhere, I think, does White Collar earn its feminist cred more than with the character of Sara Ellis. How so? I'm glad you asked! I happen to have written a post all about it. Thanks to [personal profile] frith_in_thorns for looking this over for me.

Be prepared for spoilers through season 4.

This is a thing I used to do

I used to post recipes every one in a while, then I stopped. Well, I have this big, well equipped kitchen, at least for now. So, here's what I had for dinner a couple nights ago.


Pasta Fresca:

4 cups chopped ripe tomatoes
6-8 large fresh basil leaves
1 large garlic clove, minced or pressed
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

1/2 pound fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (optional)
grated Parmesan or Pecorino cheese (optional)

Pasta, especially butterfly/bow-tie or fusilli (the recipe calls for 1 pound, but cook however much you want eat)



Set aside 1 cup of chopped tomatoes and 2 of the basil leaves. In a blender or food processor, puree the remaining tomatoes and basil with the garlic and olive oil until smooth. Cut the reserved basil leaves into thin strips.

Cook the pasta. Drain and toss immediately with mozzarella cubes, if using them. Add the sauce and mix well. Top with the reserved tomatoes and basil, and grated cheese if desired. Serve immediately.



The recipe claims this serves 4 to 6, but I can eat the entire batch in one sitting.

Reading Wednesday

This is just going to be an irregular thing for a while, isn't it? Suck.

Read in the past week: Chicana Feminist Thought: The Basic Historical Writings, edited by Alma M. Garcia. Yes, I know, one book. It was a good book! Very revealing about the workings of the second wave, obviously looking at Chicana feminism specifically, but you get a feel for the era. The book is made up of short works, frequently no more than a few pages. I wished there had been some longer works to really delve into the nitty gritty, but that's a very minor quibble.


Currently reading: The Annotated Peter Pan, by J.M. Barrie, edited by Maria Tatar. Am I only reading this because of Once Upon a Time? No, I've been meaning to read Peter Pan for a long time now. I am, however, reading it right now because of Once Upon a Time. Barrie's Peter is not the malevolent force that OUaT's Peter is, but he is, uh, rather a jerk.

Things which have made my day not awesome:

1. My bike being stolen.

2. Forgetting my watch at home.

3. Having a major onslaught of social anxiety. I feel completely stupid, like a can't win, and wishing I had never said some (relatively innocuous) things because why is everything so complicated wah.

4. I was writing fic an enjoying it, and now I feel like I shouldn't even continue because clearly I'm stupid and have no idea how to write these characters and wah again.

Well, it wasn't a great bike.

My route to get to work is two-fold. First my mom drives me to a park-n-ride, which is on her way to work. I stash my bike there, and I ride it the rest of the way to work.

Well, when I got the park-n-ride today, the bike wasn't there. I'll confess I don't know why anyone would steal that bike. It wasn't the fanciest to begin with, and was in disrepair. It's possible the lock didn't close correctly.

Luckily, if we can call it that, my mom noticed something was wrong and turned around. She gave me a ride to work. At this point my biggest regret is not having my mp3 player on me for the walk home. I like to listen to music when I walk.

My mom has an extra bike, which I'll buy a locker for at the park-n-ride. Winter is coming, so I'll be riding less anyway, and I'll be moving at the end of may next year. There was never any question of me bringing my bike to Chicago. I have seen the Chicago streets, and sworn never to get on them.

Still, it's an upsetting thing to happen.

I haven't been writing up proper episode reviews for any of the shows I'm watching, and I should. This isn't a proper write up.

I just had the most terrifying dream. It's been a long time since I was that terrified in a nightmare.

I was Elementary!Sherlock, and Moriarty was in my house. And I can't talk about this dream without getting into nature of Elementary!Moriarty, so cut for spoilers.
