The first Disney film I watched? That would be when I was about 4-5 years old. I went round to my cousin's house and he was showing off his new VCR and so we watched the only VHS tape they had at that moment which was Sleeping Beauty.

Funnily enough, my first DVD I owned was Disney's Aladdin which I got for my birthday.

I could be wrong but I think a lot of the original production was done in the UK on sound stages there, but I could be mixing this up with another movie franchise. Many "American" movies and shows these days are made in BC.

Not a crime, your insistence
Die another day
So do I
Burn my soul, all to nothing
Burn it out, let me charge in your advance
I'm watching for the chance to beat it
Even though my body's shaking
I'll give it all, deadly bumping
Cuz you make me feel

I've gotten into the habit of stovetop frying my meats and then letting them steam with my rice. It started as a haha I'm so drunk xD cooking idea that had surprisingly amazing results, especially because the meat ends up infusing the rice at the same time as it cooks, and the steaming results in really tender, juicy results.

It's a little bit like biting into a cloud that has the texture of something that used to be a living, breathing thing. Not quite as "fall apart at the touch" result that the crock pot gives but I think I prefer chicken this way 100%.

Which is to say, once the meat has acquired a good browning, I put it in the pot with extreme haste so as to not let all the steam get out, because that's the shit that's doing the actual cooking

Alcoholic beverage (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alcoholic_beverage) and the process of fermentation (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fermentation_in_food_processing): The earliest archaeological evidence of the consumption of alcoholic beverages was discovered in neolithic China dating from 7000–6600 (tel:7000%E2%80%936600) BC. Examination and analysis of ancient pottery jars from the neolithic village of Jiahu (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jiahu) in Henan (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henan) province in northern China (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/China) revealed residue left behind by the alcoholic beverages they once contained. According to a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proceedings_of_the_National_Academy_of_Sciences_of _the_United_States_of_America), chemical analysis of the residue revealed that the fermented drink was made from fruit, rice and honey.[50] (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Chinese_inventions#cite_note-mcgovern-50)[51] (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Chinese_inventions#cite_note-penn-51)Elsewhere in the world, fermented beverages have been found dating from 6000 BC in Georgia,[52] (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Chinese_inventions#cite_note-mcgoverng-52) 3150 BC in ancient Egypt (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancient_Egypt),[53] (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Chinese_inventions#cite_note-Cavalieri-53) 3000 BC in Babylon (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babylon),[54] (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Chinese_inventions#cite_note-FAO-54) 2000 BC in pre-Hispanic Mexico,[54] (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Chinese_inventions#cite_note-FAO-54) and 1500 BC in Sudan (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sudan).[55] (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Chinese_inventions#cite_note-Dirar-55)

Summary response to things due to my absent spaciness all day:

I like the Mulan songs and The Lion King in general. However, since no one brought it up, I weirdly like most of the music from Brother Bear. It has the most hopeless, miserable Disney song ever, but then there's a reprise of it in the end to keep from causing depression crises in any children who viewed it. I'll share that one under a spoiler tag, though, because I am really into big choral or orchestral music in movies, and this scene is one of my favorite Disney scenes ever for its music and the visuals.

Every time I meet somebody they always think I'm either a fair number of years older or younger than I am without any real consistency.

This happened to me when I was but a wee young'n myself. It'll stabilize once you hit your growth spurt.

I like how you have made this judgment about my nature. It's working.

I know it sounds gross but I think that the pure salt/sugar thing when you've allowed yourself to get hungry, followed by some water, could be kind of gross but whet your appetite? When my mother had a low sodium problem everything made her sick at 4am on the dot and sometimes between. The doctor realized it was a sodium deficiency and apparently that's really dangerous. It's rare, too, because we have so much preservative salt and added salt in most food, but if you have been eating home-cooked food and then have been sick, you might need fluid and salt back in your body.

I kind of want to try it now that there's a pre-mixed version, though. Not a total food replacement, but, like, outside a few specific comfort foods it's not like I really enjoy eating all that much anyway. It's just something I do to not be hungry.

I mean, I do eat when I remember to and I'm not psychologically opposed to eating. But like, I started eating a standard size grilled cheese sandwich last night and for the first half of it I was like "holy fuck this is delicious" but by the second half I was like "oh god, do I have to finish this? This is giving me the worst gag response."

And most food that I know I like starts out .... at least okay but I can never finish anything anymore because of said vague gag response. So I am really not sure.

Don't worry I'm still eating I just am not enjoying the experience.

I can't get into a doctor for the time being for various reasons but I'm going to take all these salt suggestions under serious advisement because in retrospect the only thing I've been able to polish off recently without getting this "euuuugh" response has been ketchup chips which are basically slaked in flavored salt.

Apparently the vehicle you're in can have a lot to do with how easy this is to operate. The stick that I learned in was old and barely ran as it was, so it was a bitch and left me very angry many times.
