Plug your nose . . . I have never actually smelled stinky tofu, but I have heard a lot about it. It is quite infamous.

If you ever get together with Chinese who are from China (usually Taiwan or Hong Kong) or Chinese Americans who have visited those places, they will ALL have stories to tell you if you mention chou dofu.

Naturally, I needed to write this into a book. Maybe two books.

I had to look up the Chinese name and came across this hilarious blog post about stinky tofu. This is the funniest story I’ve heard yet about it.

And if you read my debut novel, keep your eye out for chou dofu.

TMI:

Writing: I’m working on the 2007 Genesis contest! Revising a few rules and the scoresheet. Hopefully the ACFW board will approve it.

I also posted a book review on my Story Sensei blog of a writing craft book I just finished.

Diet: Thank you for your prayers! My surgery knee has been feeling better and I exercised yesterday! I did Denise Austin. But I feel big and fat since I haven’t exercised much lately AND I had a huge stress-eating-fest last weekend. Sigh.

Can I ask for more prayer? I caught a small cold on Monday, but it's slowly getting worse. Problem is, I have to lead worship at youth group on Saturday and at Sunday service.

And before you ask about exercise and sickness, I saw on Denise Austin that there is clinical research that moderate exercise does not harm your recovery time. I'm also of the mind that increased circulation can't be anything but good for you.

  1. Though I haven't had the privilege of eating or smelling stinky tofu, I did encounter some interesting things in Asia:

    DURIAN. OH. MY. GOODNESS. It smells and tastes like flatulence! Seriously! I just don't get it.

    FISH EYES. Taste like chalk.

    PIG INTESTINES. Taste like nothing, thankfully, but are chewier than medical tubing.

  6. Moderate exercise and lots of fluids...that and resting (physically and in the Lord's presence) will all contribute to keeping you on an even keel as this bug works its way out of your system.
    There must be an awesome work waiting for you this weekend for you to be getting physically attacked right now.
    Blessings on your youth work!

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

How can I pray for you?

Photo credit: lalalime.blogspot.com 日本語訳は下をご覧ください。 Just when I was feeling better, I had another bad IBS flare up! I had a really wretched 2 weeks in September, but I’m finally starting to feel better. Despite the lost two weeks, I got right back to work and now I'm getting close to finishing book 5 in my Regency series. Please continue to pray that my health will be stable so that I can write without getting derailed by my IBS like I was last month. Lord, thank You for all You give to us. You remind us in little ways each day that You are watching over us and that You love us. Help us to have humble hearts that submit to Your will for us, because we know that You love us fiercely and only want what’s best for us. In Jesus’s name, Amen. How can I pray for you today? Please leave me your prayer requests! Prayer requests can sometimes be private things, so to keep your privacy, I’ve made a form you can fill out that will keep your requests just between you and me.
