Me: So, I turn thirty this year and I was thinking that maybe it’s time for me to put together a living will? Just, you know, what sort of medical stuff can/should be done in the event that I’m nearing the end of my time. And what I want done with my body, etc.
Dad: Know that we will not be spreading your ashes on Michael Fassbender.
Me: *face of extreme horror* THAT IS, BAR NONE, THE CREEPIEST THING YOU HAVE EVER SAID TO ME.
Okay, confession time? I don’t find Michael Fassbender all that attractive. I can see you raising your eyebrows at me—just one, mind you, arched with extreme incredulity—because this blog has somehow turned into little more than a Michael Fassbender Appreciation Center, but hear me out. He’s really not my type. In fact, ultra-slim, fair-skinned, red-heads have, until very recently, been anathema to me.
What I find attractive about Mr. Fassbender is his intensity and his skill; he’s a thoroughly watchable actor that commands 100% of your attention any time he’s onscreen, and the face that he shows to the public is just as engaging. I am enthralled with his performances rather than his physical person, but I can understand why some folks feel differently. There’s a particular masculine grace to his movements and a certain quality to his speaking voice that are the physical aspects of him which I find the most appealing.
All that being said: I saw this video from Rolling Stone and went “oh, fuck,” because now I seem to find him physically attractive as well as incredibly talented. All is doom.

The simplest recipe ever, but it’s my favorite quick breakfast.
1/2 cup oatmeal
1 small apple, chopped
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (you can also add 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, but I don’t like nutmeg so I omit it)
1 tablespoon peanut butter
In a small saucepan, bring 1 cup water to a boil, throw in oatmeal, apples, cinnamon, and simmer for 3-ish minutes. Put your tablespoon of peanut butter into whatever bowl you’ll be using once the oatmeal is done, and then dump the contents of your saucepan over the peanut butter. Mix together.
Sprinkle with a small amount of brown sugar,
