I’m not sure how these turned out — they weren’t as moist as I wanted them to be, probably because the Kahlua evaporating. I’ll defer to Honeylime, FamousFremus, Walker, BaronessKika, and Streetlightlove on if they liked them.

Special thanks to Chrissytron for spurring the idea.

    I don’t even think I need to post this: doesn’t everyone have a pumpkin bread recipe? Heck, you could just buy a mix and add the raisins and be done with it.

    I love pumpkin bread. It smells better than banana bread, and the smell of it makes me swoon when it bakes.

    This one has brandied…

SERIOUS TALK: 
Okay idk if you guys have heard about this yet so I’m going to inform you about what’s going on because it’s really serious and I think everyone needs to know about this. So basically there are some sick fucking people now who have started taping and gluing razor blades around children’s parks (and on the handles of gas pumps) and placing them strategically so children get hurt. They tape them to the handles of monkey bars (so the children’s hands get sliced open), they tape them inside of slides (i think you can imagine what will happen there) and just everywhere around the playgrounds with a sick intention of hurting young kids. I know this has literally nothing to do with my blog but I take my younger cousin to the park almost every day in the summer, and I can’t imagine what I’d do if he went down a slide rigged with razor blades. So pleaspleaseplease reblog this, I think people need to see it so they can be more careful, I don’t want little kids possibly seriously hurting themselves.

It’s true.

my god i live there wtf

    When I grow up I want to be Ming-Na Wen.

    She’s the voice of Mulan, as if she wasn’t amazing enough.

    She broke it with her fingers. Not a fist, her fingers.

    Girl is 50 years old.

    FIFTY. YEARS. OLD.

    fun fact: When you break things with your hands like that you have t break your fingers on purpose before so that they heal stronger. So basically this woman is so badass she broke her hands just to do this. 

    You asshat, you’re making it sound like she snaps her fingers in half. 

    Martial artists like Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee (and yes, fucking Ming-Na Wen, that beautiful badass) will build up their bone strength by repeatedly (and fairly gently) striking sand, gravel, wood and steel - this creates tons of microfractures in their bones (smaller than even a hairline fracture) so the bones will heal over again and make the bones stronger and denser with increased deposits of calcium. 

    This has to be done over long-ass periods of time, so the bones have time to heal, and none of the fractures expand into actual breaks. 

    Oh, and she’s doing precise-ass kicks in HIGH HEELS. 

    she kicks ass like a coursing river

    with all the force of a great typhoon
