Final Video of the year!
I talk a lot about my weird food habits over holidays and all things yummy in conjunction with my family holiday traditions.
In This Video
My favorite chocolates to eat and gift? Belle Monde Chocolates.
The weirdest food traditions in my family around holidays. My favorite foods to eat at the holidays. How crab is a holiday food for me and why.
How do I feel about fruitcake? I mention, Panettone = Italian fruit bread. I also really love Italian Fruitcake cookies (I can’t remember the Italian name)
Other family food traditions: Pfeffernüsse, Dungeness Crab, Penguin Biscuits, Tim Tams, Jelly Babies.
Do I cook? What do I pretty much put into everything when I cook?
Crudrat started as a letter game!
Heroine’s Journey, how’s it going? What unusual things have happened because of it.
Traveling to research and researching while traveling for settings in books. I talk about my Singapore research for Competence here.
Piper and I discuss settings in books and why they make us want to visit certain places on our podcast, 20 Minute Delay. And movies that do the same here.
He’s Coming To Me – Gay Paranormal Romance – Thai BL.
Other favorite Thai Dramas: The Gifted (high school super powers, GREAT twist ending, PG13), 3 Will Be Free (poly romance on the run from assassins, trigger warning for sexual assault), and Until We Meet Again (epic reincarnation gay romance, so good, but trigger warning for suicide)
A Villain for Christmas by Alice Winters.
