Moana? As good as advertised. Also, feels weirdly like a corporate challenge to a duel between new-Pixar-flavored-Disney and old Disney. Or the end of a duel? It was the "you're a princess, right?" / "same thing" conversation between Moana (new Disney) and Maui (old Disney) that really slapped me in the face with it.

I have now baked a deep-dish pizza, once. There are a lot of things I can do better, but... Man, that's *good*. Definitely going to do that again. It also caused me to Google a question about deep-dish pizzas, which in turn led me to the vast Internet trove of how to cook them. Too late for my first attempt, but that's gonna make for a much better second attempt. (Short answer? Olive oil on anything that can burn, especially the crust; also put a "roof" of aluminum foil on the rack above the pizza, and a preheated-to-a-higher-temperature pizza stone below. Or buy a $5000 commercial deck oven.)

Also baked my first "real" fruitcake based roughly on Alton Brown's fruitcake recipe. I've been spraying it down with rum every few days since October. I *think* it's gonna be awesome when we eat it -- it's about time to find out. It also makes me sacrilegeously happy that it's been a great excuse to keep a garden spray bottle of good aged rum sitting around.

Other than that, there's been so much going on I don't even know where to start. I owe at least one more LJ post, no question... But for now, this'll do.
