Fudge recipe on a headstone
I feel like I should make this just to be able to say a dead person taught me how to make it. Maybe I’ll do it for Halloween.
I desperately hope that she spent her entire life telling people that they could have her fudge recipe “over my dead body.”
That last comment is absolutely worth reblogging.

The Urididae is a type of moth and its cocoon is a bright orange color, that sometimes looks golden. The cocoon is usually suspended on a long thread below a leaf.
The net structure of the cocoon allows for more airflow over the pupa. This prevent fungus and mold from being able to grow on it.

DESI FASHION 101
OKAY LISTEN FOR A SEC
EVERY DESI WOMEN’S OUTFIT IS NOT A GOD DAMN SARI!
IS YOUR MIND BLOWN YET?
GOOD. BECAUSE YOU ARE ABOUT TO LEARN THE NAME OF ALL THE MAIN THINGS WE WEAR (they may have different names based on the region)
THAT FIRST ONE? THAT IS A SARI. THE THING YOU THINK WE ALWAYS WEAR. BASICALLY IT’S A 5 YARD (OR 9 YARD) LONG PIECE OF FABRIC WE WRAP AROUND OURSELVES AND IT CAN BE A PAIN IN THE ASS TO KEEP INTACT BUT IT’S OKAY BECAUSE IT’S PRETTY
THE SECOND ONE? IT’S EITHER A LEHENGA OR GHAGRA CHOLI. EVEN I CAN’T TELL THE DIFFERENCE. THEY ARE BOTH A BLOUSE WITH A LONG SKIRT TECHNICALLY. THE GHAGRA IS USUALLY LOOSER THAN THE LEHENGA (THOSE TERMS REFER TO THE SKIRT)
THE THIRD ONE IS AN ANARKALI SUIT. SUPER LONG SHIRT-DRESS WITH “LEGGINGS.” MY PERSONAL FAVE TBH
THE FOURTH: A CHURIDAR SUIT. SIMILAR TO AN ANARKALI EXCEPT THE TOP ONLY GOES DOWN TO LIKE THE KNEES
THAT LAST ONE? THAT IS A PATIALA SALWAR KAMEEEZ. LONG-ISH SHIRT WITH, WHAT YOU NON DESI FOLK WOULD CALL, “PARACHUTE PANTS”
THERE ARE A BUNCH OF OTHER TYPES BUT THESE ARE THE ONES I AM FAMILIAR WITH. FEEL FREE TO ADD ON.
