1decent heaped tablespoon of dark/red miso paste
1 can of chopped, peeled tomatoes
1-2 diced onions
1 teaspoon of crushed garlic
1 large handful of dried shitake mushrooms (cut into small pieces with scissors)
1 small handful of wakame seaweed flakes (I used rice topping stuff)
Combine all in pot with extra water (no more than 4 cups extra), boil/simmer until mushrooms are tender. Add rice vermicelli (small bunch) and remove from heat. Wait a couple of minutes then stir and serve.
Really the thing I find offputting about a lot of portrayals of Cecil is how young they seem. I can’t be the only one who feels Fink and Cranor have been giving consistent and unsubtle hints that Cecil is an older gentleman, can I? (“Settling into the better part of age,” etc.)
And by “older” I…
Judging simply by the cassette player Cecil would have to be at least 27. Cassette players were what I grew up with and then CDs came out. So, Cecil was born in 1986 or prior. But that’s operating under the assumption that Night Vale has normal tech parallels with everywhere else.
So, as it turns out, either I have unrealistic expectations of my durability or I’m just a lot more physically fragile than I thought I was. Being completely laid out by a period is beyond ridiculous. Morning sickness nausea solved only by vomiting, hot flushes that feel like going into shock, being out of breath just walking into another room… I’m seriously unimpressed.
