taylorswift we need a recipe for these please! 🍪🍪🍪
MMMKAY— there are two ways you can go about this.
The quick and easy way is to make sugar cookies from a sugar cookie mix and just cut open a packet of chai tea and pour it into the batter as you make it. Cause you’re busy and you want making cookies to be a chill part of your day.
If you want to make the cookies from scratch (that’s what I did for the 1989 Secret Sessions), you can use this recipe I found on a baking blog I like, joythebaker.com and I believe it was originally from a book called The Pastry Queen. If you want another great baking blog, I get a lot of great ideas from smittenkitchen.com too. This is a recipe for basic insanely good sugar cookies. I added the chai element to the recipe because I thought it would infuse cozy holiday vibez into the cookie and it really did. So I’ll star the part that I added in the recipe.
***after you add the egg and vanilla, cut one chai tea packet open and empty the crushed up tea leaves into the batter CAUSE CHAI COOKIES ARE ABOUT TO HAPPEN UP IN HERE***
I made an icing for the cookies, but they’re fine on their own. If you want to make icing for them, just mix 1 cup powdered sugar with 1/4 T-spoon of nutmeg, 1/4 T-spoon of cinnamon and 3 TAYblespoons <—-(I’m so annoying, it astounds me sometimes) of milk or eggnog if you can find it this time of year. The more milk/eggnog you add, the more your icing will become a glaze. But glazes are legit too so basically just LIVE YOUR LIFE.
I lightly sprinkled cinnamon over the icing once the cookies were baked and iced, but there are so many icing options you can pair with these cookies—I mean it’s out of control.
If you’re really feeling like living on the edge, you can go ahead and add a few drops of food coloring to the icing to make it festive. No one is going to stop you.
Cause the bakers gonna bake bake bake bake bake.

AVEN 2014 Survey | The Asexual Visibility and Education Network | asexuality.orgasexuality.org
The Asexual Visibility and Education Network (AVEN) is performing a large-scale survey.
We are looking for any respondents who are part of the asexual spectrum, as well as people who are not part of the asexual spectrum. This survey includes some sensitive questions about sexual topics. Please distribute this announcement.
The survey is open for some time. Later, statistical results will be published, providing crucial information about the demographics and needs of asexual-spectrum people.
The survey can be accessed here.
We also want to open this survey to anyone in any ace communities, whether you identify as asexual or not. Please share with anyone you think might be interested!
This is one of the most important ways that we can find out who is participating in our communities - this helps us determine who is being left out of mainstream discourse, what problems we activists should be turning our attention to, and other very important things.
EDIT: a heads up for anyone planning on taking the survey.
The biggest possible plot twist this season would be that Kuvira was the good guy all along.
I was thinking about what-ifs and it occurred to me that if Aang had lived to be older and died in his early eighties, then the avatar who had to deal with HC would have been this little kid and the world would have been screwed. Alternatively, Aang may have had to face HC at a very old age with a much lower chance of winning against Unalaq/Vaatu. That's not even staring on how much the Krew's lives would be different (probably worse. Korra really changed Mako and Bolin's lives for the better)
I’m not sure whether that would have been an issue, actually — it’s strongly implied that Vaatu would have remained trapped if the portals hadn’t been opened, so unless Unalaq coerced old!Aang or a very young Avatar into opening the portals, fighting Vaatu wouldn’t have been as big of a deal.
The Krew’s lives — especially Mako and Bolin’s! — definitely would have been a lot worse had Korra not been around, I agree.
I also think that the Red Lotus thing could have turned out worse had Aang still been alive… if Korra barely managed to survive that poison, I have no idea how an 82-year-old Aang could have lasted long enough to have it removed. =(
The Red Lotus actually wouldn’t have been an issue either. In their first attack, they would have had all the same people fighting them plus a fully grown Avatar Aang instead of helpless baby Korra. The new airbenders are apparently a result of the portals being opened, so if Aang didn’t open the portals then Zaheer wouldn’t get airbending and the Red Lotus wouldn’t escape prison.
