Beautiful and Strong

Help Japan!

All right, all of the offers are up on help_japan, and bidding will end on March 31st. There's a ton of great stuff on there, from fics, to food, beta services, art, graphics, layouts, and lots and lots of interesting things like clothes, dolls, jewelry, and letters from around the world.

I am offering a year's worth of letters and recipes. I'll happily talk about my life, my job, my hobbies, and my cat. I'll blab about any shared fandoms, talk about books I read and movies I see, and stories that I'm writing. If you want to write back, I'll listen to your woes, try to give advice, and squee about our shared shows. I'll include recipes I've made (and enjoyed), articles from our local paper, and the occasional gift on your birthday/significant date/holiday of your choice. So if you'd like a penpal from the American Midwest, bid on me! My pen is ready and waiting!

Things That Are Relavant to My Interests...

So, I hope to do some writing tomorrow, and I hope that you, dear flist, can answer a very important question for me.

What does calamari taste like? What is its texture? Is it usually served with a sauce? If so, what kind? It the batter usually spiced or whatnot? Is it generally served in a plate or a basket (or another serving vessel altogether)? Does one typically consume it with alcohol?

If anyone knows, I'd like to know too!

If you're wondering why, I signed up for tentacle_fest.
