So this was a potion mentioned in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. (http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Draught_of_Peace) It has powdered moonstone, syrup of hellebore, and powdered unicorn horn. These however are not ingredients I can get, this isn’t Pottermore. I can read all about them, but considering I have no idea what ‘hellebore’ is, this became a recipe that calls for creative liberty. So I started thinking about what helps me sleep. Chamomile was my #1. The powdered moonstone could be ginger, which is also a soother, the syrup could be honey, and…aw hell the unicorn horn is the lemon juice. My logic is flawless.
I just had a sip of this tea, and I had to type to my friend group on Skype that I just made awesome tea. I’m making this from now on.  This really is a tea that makes you feel better, calms you down, and helps you sleep. I recommend it for anyone feeling crappy right now.
 
DRAUGHT OF PEACE (better than a chill pill)
1 chamomile tea bag
1 medallion of ginger (a bit less than what would fit in a tablespoon)
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoon lemon juice (bottle or fresh who cares)
Boiling water
Boil the water in a kettle. Put your tea bag and ginger chunk into the cup, and fill with water. Cover and let it seep for a few minutes, prodding the tea bag and ginger to the bottom and pressing it them against the side of the cup occasionally. Once it’s been a little while, generally abuse chamomile tea bag to get all the flavor out. Do the same with the ginger piece to have all its juices seep. Fish both out, add the honey and lemon juice, and stir to combine. Now enjoy and feel at peace, that’s what it’s for.

Harbor Police arrested a 29-year-old man early Sunday morning, July 27th in a hotel at 333 West Harbor Drive. He was booked into San Diego County Jail at 11:20 am on charges of sexual contact with a minor and contributing to the delinquency of minor. The victim, a juvenile female, was transported to a hospital for evaluation and treatment. The Harbor Police Investigations Unit is handling the incident. This investigation is ongoing.

HE HAS BEEN ARRESTED.

For those who don’t know what has been happening,

According to the girl’s mother, her injuries are severe, and indicate a vicious beating. Here is the account of what occurred from Tumblr:

IF YOU WENT TO SAN DIEGO COMIC CON OR KNOW ANYONE WHO HAS, PLEASE READ.

One of my dearest friends was found on the side of the road, unconscious and bloody. She was wearing this cosplay on the day it happened. She was last seen with friends when she ran off after a disagreement. Please, please, please, if you have ANY information or saw her anywhere, contact her mother. The full information is down below. This isn’t okay and it’s sickening to know that this happened at a place people truly can enjoy themselves. Please spread the word.

”I just received a call from the San Diego Police Department and my daughter REDACTED aka REDACTED was found on the side of the road covered in blood with no ID unconscious. They are unsure what happened to her. My husband is on his way to the police station and then the hospital. If you have any information on what happened to her please send me a facebook message or call me at REDACTED. Thank you in advance”. -REDACTED

Remember when SDCC said they didn’t want to make their anti-harassment policy clear because it would make it seem like there was a problem? (more)

well too fucking bad, now it REALLY looks like you have a problem, you fucks.

Let’s just keep this circulating, shall we? Because this is not okay on any level.

Lembas Bread (Lord of the Rings “authentic” Elvish bread)

Ingredients: 

 2 ½ cups of flour (I used bread flour but you can use all purpous flour too)
1 tablespoon of baking powder
¼ teaspoon of salt
½ cup of butter (melted)
1/3 cup of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
½ teaspoon honey
2/3 cup of heavy whipping cream
½ teaspoon of vanilla

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425°F. Mix the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Add the butter and mix well till fine granules (easiest way is with an electric mixer). Then add the sugar and cinnamon, and mix them thoroughly.

Finally add the cream, honey, and vanilla and stir until a nice, thick dough forms.

Roll the dough out about 1/2 in thickness. Cut out 3-inch squares and transfer the dough to a cookie sheet.Criss-cross each square from corner-to-corner with a knife, lightly (not cutting through the dough).

Bake for about 12 minutes or more (depending on the thickness of the bread) until it is set and lightly golden.

***Let cool completely before eating, this bread tastes better room temperature and dry. Also for more flavor you can add more cinnamon or other spices***

one of my favourite superstitions is this one they have in china where ghosts allegedly can’t turn corners, so in shanghai they built a bridge made entirely of 90° turns to ward off the evil spirits

Everyone did.

What. Wait… What?!!

I actually knew Terk was a chick!! But I didn’t at first. I don’t remember when I found out but I actually thought Terk was really cool afterwards.
