A Rogue’s Adventuring Essentials: Food, Nails and…Ballet Gear?

Greetings from the depths of a thicket of deadlines, fellow rogues!

As you may have seen in my recent Beauty Spotlight Team post, I’ve been questing my way through some particularly sticky and unpleasant deadline territory at the moment! As a result, I haven’t had as much time as I’d like (or the light, for that matter) to get swatchy and look-y posts together for you as quickly as I want to! They’re in the works, but a rogue never leaves her fellow adventurers in the lurch! While I finish beating my way through this thicket, I hope you’ll accept some pretty food, beauty and ballet related pictures! 😉

I know it’s been a pressing concern for many of you: just what *does* a rogue’s every day life look like? What does she eat? How does she do her nails? for the love of the Gods, what is the pattern on her ballet gear!?!1?! 😀 Fear not that ye shall never know, for now is your chance to find out!

PIE!

What’s in the pies?! Any guesses? They are the happiest pies in the world, you know. Also, adorable individual pie dishes are adorable.

Rhubarb and Pear Compote with Homemade Yoghurt

Seed Bread

Homemade seed bread! All it needs is a toaster, and some butter and vegemite 😉

Rhubarb, Pear and Ginger Crumble

Homemade rhubarb, pear and ginger crumble (also known as the food of the Gods – crumbles, that is).

Ballet Lookbook?

Another of my ballet ensembles! 😀 I know how endlessly fascinating these are 😉 Yes, I need new tights. #paisleypants

 

Right! I hope you enjoyed the pictures, but since this was a bit of a cop-out post on my part, let’s spice it up with some questions! Feel free to answer as many or as few as you like in the comments! I love hearing your responses ^_^.

  1. What’s in the pies?
  2. How many pies can a paladin consume in one sitting if left unattended?
  3. How awesome is purple nail polish?
  4. Any recipes you’d like?
  5. #teamcrumble or #teampie? (I think it’s #teamcrisp in the US?)
  6. What would you wear to an adventurers’ ballet class? (anything goes!).

 

Until next time, fellow adventurers, don’t forget to check for traps!

  1. What’s in the pies? Each has 2 and 10 blackbirds, to get the total 4 and 20

    How many pies can a paladin consume in one sitting if left unattended? An African or a European paladin?

    How awesome is purple nail polish? The awesomest, as it brings together the two awesome colors of red and blue.

    Any recipes you’d like? The recipe for success

    #teamcrumble or #teampie? (I think it’s #teamcrisp in the US?) In the US, crumbles have oats in the topping, and crisps do not. I am #teamcrumble (but I won’t turn down any of them)

    What would you wear to an adventurers’ ballet class? (anything goes!). My wedding dress. It would be hard as heck to dance in, but I only got to wear it once and it cost a ton of money, so I need some uses for it. The adventurous part will be trying to fit in it after 23 years.

    • *wipes tear of mirth from eye over first two responses* 😀
      What? ARRRRRGH~

      If I find the recipe for success (and it’s cooler/easier than ‘work your butt off + get lucky occasionally + chocolate’) then I will totally share it here. 😉

      Aha! You learn something new every day! The crumble in the picture is definitely a crumble then, as I put oats in, but usually it would be a crisp (as I do not…) 🙂

      High fives for the wedding dress idea! I got to wear mine twice (same wizard, two countries), but I still totally want to wear it for other occasions. The $$$, you know (although I regret nothing – it’s awesome).

    • Heh, the weather’s been miserable over here the last few days, so sweaters have been very much in order. It’s humid too, so the cold kind of sticks. Despite the fact that it’s not actually that cold (according to the thermometer), I’m wearing two sweaters…

  2. What’s in the pies?

    The souls of the damned. The happy faces are only a cunning disguise. Could also be a pie mimic to lure unsuspecting adventurers into their inevitable doom!

    How many pies can a paladin consume in one sitting if left unattended?

    If a dwarf is present, none…

    How awesome is purple nail polish?

    Depends on the modificator of the nail polish bottle. If it was a +10 one: As awesome as a Holy Smiter.
    Any recipes you’d like?

    Brandobyn’s Gnomish mushroom stew is pretty good. However, sometimes it as interesting side effects…
    #teamcrumble or #teampie? (I think it’s #teamcrisp in the US?)

    Both, I do not discriminate against crumbles or pies (and would alos eat crisps)

    What would you wear to an adventurers’ ballet class? (anything goes!).

    Chainmail and a helmet with a red plume…then die after 5 minutes…

    • ROFL ‘pie mimic’ 😀 How terrifying would that be? You go to eat your pie, and all of a sudden it’s eating *your* face off.

      That dwarf, man…that dwarf. You’d think he’d have filled up on all that Gnomish mushroom stew (Brandobyn is looking for him, by the way)…

      I like the red plume concept. Gives it that ‘expressive’ edge that chainmail lacks. 😉

  4. Hey Syl! Your post is making me hungry, haha!! Those pies are adorable. I also love the First Dance nail polish on you.

    Purple nail polish is awesome, but I actually don’t own any currently myself (I had one previously and it went bad). And it’s too hard to choose between pie and crumbles/crisps! I choose all of them ;).

    • LOL, It makes *me* hungry whenever I look at those pictures! I always feel that if you have leftover pastry, it is your *duty* to make the pies as adorable/entertaining as you can 😉

    Ninja suit. They look so comfy…

    Like

    • LOL, ‘minced happy face’. The pies are only small, actually, so the paladin can probably pack a way quite a few (unless the wizard gets there first – MAN can that guy pack away pie).

      Purple-tipped high fives! #actuallyminecameoffbutI’mputtingmoreontonight 😀

      Mmm…how about a smoked fish and queso crumble? 😉

      I think a ninja suit would work really well, actually. Plus (just to mix cultural stereotypes) you could probably get a neat Crouching Tiger thing going if you wore a ninja suit during the grands jetes…

  6. 1. What’s in the pies? OMG I DON’T KNOW BUT FEED ME.

    2. How many pies can a paladin consume in one sitting if left unattended? At least 10. That’s a piss poor paladin who can’t.

    3. How awesome is purple nail polish? THISMUCH.

    4. Any recipes you’d like? Can I just run away with the food instead?

    5. #teamcrumble or #teampie? (I think it’s #teamcrisp in the US?) #teamboth for this Canadian

    6. What would you wear to an adventurers’ ballet class? (anything goes!). You are also THISMUCH awesome! What other roguish skills are you hiding? I’ve been wanting to take adult ballet lessons for a while but unwilling to commit, so I’m doing this posture exercise via YouTube and admiring all the pretty ballet gear that’s recently turned up on Net-a-Porter. But if I were to attend this fabulous class, I’d probably show up in the tight black Nike exercisewear that I neglected for years because I was also unwilling to commit to The Gym. Hmmm… I think the adventurers would just kick me out if I showed up. LOL

    • OK! *shoves pies into Liz* …better? 🙂

      You can totally run away with the food. If you’re a true rogue, no one will even notice until it’s too late, LOL!

      I think we need to do some sort of Purple polish roundup or something. I’d love to hear what everyone’s favourites are!

      Aww, you’re so kind! I do have a few other random rogue skills, but if I told you about them, I’d have to kill you, of course ;-).

      You totally need to get into adult ballet!!! Seriously, don’t even get me started, because I am positively evangelical about this stuff… I may be looking at a move soon, and literally the first thing I thought of was WHATAMIGOINGTODOABOUTBALLETOMG?!? There are no downsides, really – it’s fantastic exercise (my ladylike six pack says hello), you become insanely in touch with your body and how it moves, you get to feel pretty, and the gear is totally awesome!
      DO IIIIIIIT! 😀

    half a dozen! taking hits for the team is hard work that takes a lot of calories!

    extremely awesome! that’s why there’s two rows of them in my stash! esp the dual chrome ones
    Any recipes you’d like?
    i need the homemade bread recipe! and the recipe for the crumble

    • LOL, not a rhubarb fan? I wonder how you feel about gooseberries… 😉

      Nope, not shepherd’s pie! gotta have potato on top for that (#piepurist)…

      You have an excellent point about the connection between taking and calories. Maybe all paladins are secretly fuelled by pie?

      *high fives for purple polish stash*

      Aha! The bread one! I will add it to the list of Rogue’s Rations posts – who doesn’t need a good bread recipe?

      Woop woop! Team Crumble! Yeah! *backflips*

      Aww, you should totally come along to the class! I remember when I first started. and we were doing pas de bourree for the first time, I COULD NOT work out how it was done. I was moritifed. It’s like the most basic step ever. But I got it after a bit! Also, before I started, I used to turn my ankle at least once a day (even in flat shoes). Now I haven’t turned an ankle in three years…
      However, if you’re really not keen (totally legit position), you should still come along to throw shuriken at the cleric if he starts showing off too much (put that guy in a tutu, and I swear…) 😉

      • The pies are sort of a combo of a bunch of stuff we had lying around, but are mainly steak and eggplant, with a healthy dose of cheese. Because obviously, everything is better with cheese.

        Magic missiles ftw! So long as it keeps that cleric in check… 😉

  9. Yay, more polls, moar polls! 😀

    What’s in the pies? I hope not meat. Best case scenario would be chocolate for me. But I bet that’s not what’s in there.

    How many pies can a paladin consume in one sitting if left unattended? Depends. How big are the pies? What’s in them? Are there any toppings? Did the paladin have breakfast? Does he work an office job for the King or does he actually go into battle? I need details! DETAILS!

    How awesome is purple nail polish? Pretty awesome. Not as awesome as coral nail polish of course. But still pretty awesome.

    Any recipes you’d like? Nutella pancakes. Oh man. I’d make some right now if I could. You know what, I should… what’s keeping me?

    #teamcrumble or #teampie? (I think it’s #teamcrisp in the US?) Ha? °_°

    • Hehe, I’m glad you like them! I have a real makeup post coming up tomorrow though 😉 (feel so bad for leaving people with just photos!)

      No, it isn’t chocolate, sadly. I do have one sheet of pastry left, though, and some pears, some fresh ginger and some dark cooking chocolate…. I think you know what has to happen here… 😀

      Details: the paladin had an argument with the cleric yesterday, but otherwise sat around polishing his armour and admiring his reflection in it… 😛

      Hehe, my coral nail polish collection is sadly tiny. I have my eye on Essie Cute as A Button though, and there’s a Deobrah Lippmann one that I really want after seeing some gorgeous pics on Lipglossiping…Daytripper, I think?

      I hope you had your Nutella Pancakes! I like my pancakes with yoghurt, golden syrup and fruit, but if we’re talking crepes, I prefer either lemon/sugar or one of those ‘complete’ ones (egg/ham/cheese)…

      #noteam? 😀

      I bet you’d look *amazing* in a black swan tutu! LOL, wish I would!
