Here it is...
You require the following ingredients:
1 1/3 cup joshinko (rice flour. Or you can get rice flour and grind it, but it must be ground just enough so it's as a flour. Any wheat grinder would work well. Just use the electronic one. I did it by hand and it hurts>>)
Making the rice dumplings:
Put rice flour in a bowl and add warm water. Knead the dough well (or just use a metal spoon if you want to). Make small round dumplings (the size of rubber balls).

Heroes Avatars: clean art (EDIT)A lot later than this should have been, but finally, art for them all:Heroes Avatars: clean art (EDIT)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Figured it was time to switch to a new journal...
While it isn't the proper announcement of the Class-up yet, but it is clean artwork from the website. For the Saiyans at least. Still kinda hard to see the other races on the card.
Couple of notes:
Beat still has an off looking face, but not as bad as before. He lacks pupils in the eyes. Guess this inconsistency will continue forever.Note seems to have less eyebrow definition than I originally thought. She doesn't have pupils in this artwork either.Kabra is blocked even worse than before...Tsumuri doesn't show anything new...Nimu...seems to have facial hair? I thought the avatars were supposed to be younger than that. Kinda strange... Hoping it's a smudge.Froze looks kinda cool, but I'm not sure how much I like the black and white armor combined. Maybe just one or the other? Full body would be nice.

Toriyama Interview (Saikyo Jump)Kanzenshuu has the full translation of the new Toriyama interview up. Some fun tidbits in there, some contradictory to previous information too: http://www.kanzenshuu.com/translations/episode-bardock-akira-toriyama-super-qa/Toriyama Interview (Saikyo Jump)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As you know, Akira Toriyama-sensei, the father of Dragon Ball, oversaw the manga in this volume, and so naturally, he answered the questions of Naho Ooishi-sensei, who is also a super-fan of Dragon Ball!! Don’t miss it!
How was the character of Bardock born? (I heard he was born from the TV special, “A Lonely Final Battle”, but…) Also, what sort of attachment do you have to the character Bardock?
Yes, Bardock certainly was born from the anime. However, I don’t remember the particulars of how it went at that time. As for his design, I think I probably just gave some editorial supervision to what was suggested to me by [people from] the anime side of things. I don’t r

Dragon Ball: New Project (PS4, PS3, 360)Let's switch this over to Kanzenshuu's description of the game:Dragon Ball: New Project (PS4, PS3, 360)10 months ago in Personal More Like This
While little is known about the game yet besides the visuals shown on the page, the magazine does draw attention to a mysterious figure watching the first battle between Goku and Vegeta from the shadows. With red hair, a scouter, and the Capsule Corporation logo on his sleeve, his identity is not made clear. The magazine poses the question to the reader as to who he is and what this means. Two cities of unclear nature are also showcased, with one in a Namek-like environment sporting a temple with a tree in the middle of what looks like a birdcage, and the other a “high-tech city” with which “that Majin” apparently has some sort of connection. Further details are, as always, expected in subsequent issues of the magazine.
Okay, so now that we have an official translation of the material,

Last chicken in Sainsbury's“Dirty Bird”, a fried chicken vendor in Wales, has been forced to defend its choice in logo:Last chicken in Sainsbury's7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Some rather prudish individuals have complained that it looks a mite dubious, while the owner of Dirty Bird has insisted that people are seeing what they want to see, and not what was intended.
It is claimed that the logo is simply the lower case initials of the company placed back to back in order to form the neck and wings of a cockerel.
Seeing one of Dirty Bird’s recent promotional images, however; one might be given cause to doubt their professed innocence.
And people ask why I like living on this spiteful little island

Life for the past 6 Years (Long Journal :/)Hi everyone! So...I haven't said too much or been very active for the past 6 years or so...I was active for my first full year on DA but then life kinda happened and I wasn't on very much. So I thought I would say everything that has happened and what is currently going on in my life because I would love feedback and opinions.

The last time I was very active on here I was studying Computer Science at Texas Women's University. I started studying weightloss as I was very unhappy with my life and I had been obese most of my life. I was severely OCD as well...if I didn't have classes I would never have left my home. I was scared of germs and contamination. My mom had to start accompanying me to places to open doors because I was too afraid to touch door knobs (yeah it was THAT bad :/). But as I began losing weight I started having more people approach and talk to me...then I decided to change s
