    Once upon a time, a crazy toa of air decided to write anything and everything that came to mind for an interests column. Then he decided to take it down because its structure collapsed due to its intense height. D=

    To replace this giant rock, the toa of air (let's call him... uh... Cautiously Offending Orde Like Dume Using Dirty Etiquette, or COOLDUDE for short) decided to present a rather obscure acronym instead.

  1. Very few places still make desserts and breads from scratch these days. And even the ones that do use some cheats like cake mixes, icing that gets shipped in buckets or just factory made products. Baking from scratch to me seems to be a bit of a lost art. In my entire career I've worked in three locations that made everything from scratch. In all of those locations I was the only baker/pastry chef and the workload was always demanding. It can be a lot for one person to run a bakery alone. At my first job, my position was terminated and the company went with factory made products as opposed to scratch made products. It was disheartening. Nowadays I work in a grocery store, where nothing is made from scratch. Everything comes in frozen, from bread doughs to cakes to cookie dough, etc. And these products? They don't hold a candle to the work I've done in the past. And that's not because I'm an especially skilled baker, though I did build up my skill set over time. No, it was simply because I took the time to bake the products with care. Baking isn't that difficult. It is an exact science a lot of the time, and yes there are some projects much more involved than others, but overall things like italian bread, chocolate chip cookies or a fruit tart don't take an especially great amount of skill to achieve. All anyone needs is a recipe, the proper ingredients (butter in place of crisco for example), some equipment and the time to bake. It always saddens me these days to see so many people buying, frankly, inferior products at the grocery store. People pay good money for birthday cakes that come in frozen, probably loaded with preservatives and topped with icing that comes from a box and gets water added to it. And frankly it's overly sweet and addicting. I just find it sad because here we have a special occasion and people celebrate with garbage food. I've made cakes with flavor other than just sugar. It's so much better, I find, to taste butter, real butter, in buttercream icing. I know I must sound like a snob, but when I studied at culinary school I created and tasted some of the finest patisserie in my life. I try to keep that alive every now and then too. But in the food industry, the things we treat ourselves to just aren't worth the calories when they come from the store. Anyway, that's just my random thought of the day.
  2. This is a blog entry -Tekulo
  3. It's my birthday. waaaaaaaaaaat Anyway, Billy, GET OFF MY LAWN! ~Tekulo ♡
  4. I really like your style! It always boggles my mind how much people improve over the years when they stick with drawing. I'm a sucker for sketches, but also these look very detailed for scribbles. Well done!
  5. Maybe 2020 will be a good year. 2019 for me was just a lot of surviving and recovery. I'd just like some peace in the new year. 2019 wasn't all bad. Even some of the more challenging moments lead to some good things this year. I know a little more about myself now. This was the first year I didn't go to pride adter going two years a row to the Seattle pride parade. I'm back in Ohio now and Pride isn't really celebrated in my hometown. This next year I should really get a ride to the city. I'm thinking of dying my hair blue or maybe pink again. This year I got to go on a couple of vacations which was nice. Though they weren't without their fair share of drama. I got to see some old friends this holiday season and I'm going to see more of them soon. That is one thing I do like about being home; getting to see everyone. But I don't see friends too often these days. I wish I could meet some LGBTQ friendly folks. I'm not staying up til midnight tonight. I work early tomorrow morning. Happy new year, everyone! Be safe and I'll see you around. ~Tekulo
  6. Title says it all. Warm wishes, Tekulo
  7. Hello and welcome back to Late @ Night With Tekulo! Yes, that's always been the title of this show. After episode one was a rousing success, and popular demand, we are here on episode 2! During this holiday season, work has been keeping me busy. On my days off, however, I feel a bit of unease. There really isn't much to do here in my hometown. I have no local friends, no means to get out of the house and really no place to go hang out if I could get out anyway. I find myself missing living on my own and being more independent. Sure I took the bus to work, but it was still a good year up until the end. I used to go for walks, was surrounded by people I thought were friends, but I haven't spoken to them since I left. Now I'm left with memories of being happy tainted by my own mistakes and regrets. But hey, that's in the past. I'm sure I have lots to look forward to. Like being alone forever stuck in my hometown where I'm too afraid to dye my hair or wear fun clothing. Right now I'm honestly just surviving. I feel completely adrift with no idea where to go from here. And yet my story continues...
  8. Welcome to the Tekulo show! A show where I answer any question from any audience member! (The audience is you, dear reader!) I'm totally not just doing this to waste time on my day off work. So ask away! (AMA? That's not a real thing)
  9. I've been watching the new Ducktales. It has some pretty good moments in it and I find it very charming. Also Steven Universe Future has aired four episodes and they are very good. They deal with aspects of the show I've been dying to see for a long time. Other than that, work has been stressful. I feel like I'm screwing up a lot, but that comes with being new to a job. I'm increasingly unsure if baking is something I want to be doing for the rest of my life. I'm also still unsure of what I'd be doing instead. On the romance front, I'm still single, but that's ok. I think after a few life events I've kinda cooled off from being a jopeless romantic and recognize there's a lot more to relationships than just pining after someone. I've read a few books on the subject that I think helped give me more perspective on things.
