#s 2 & 5 for the soft asks 💜
-Mari from contre-qui
#2: how many houseplants in your room, and what kinds are they?
I currently have eight (8!) houseplants in my room--a coffee plant, a dieffenbachia, and two mystery succulents, plus four baby mystery succulents which are propagated from when my tall succulent was looking unhappy so I clipped some off.
#5: 5 tv shows that cheer you up
Great British Bake Off
Any period BBC miniseries (but the first that came to mind were Middlemarch, Sense & Sensibility, and Pride & Prejudice even though I've only seen it once)
Thank you! 💜

Wookiepedia on the Golden Lichen
Read the Original Texts Here and Here!
Golden Lichen, also known as gold dust, was a type of lichen native to the Outer Rim planet Batuu. It could be used in food and as a dye. It often grew on the sides of the planet's petrified spires as well as on the sides of buildings.
The crime lord Oga Garra had a monopoly on the cultivation and exportation of Golden Lichen. Many residents of Surabat Vicinity were involved in the dangerous process of harvesting it for her.
Golden Lichen was a species of bright golden lichen uniquely found on its homeworld of Batuu. The lichen could grow over trees, rocks and man made structures. It had a variety of uses, including use in paint and dye or as an exotic garnish or ingredient in cooking.Chef Strono Tuggs published his recipe for a type of tuile called Golden Lichen Tuile in his cookbook.
During the war between the First Order and the Resistance, Golden Lichen could be found widespread through Black Spire Outpost on Batuu, where it was called gold dust by the locals who discovered the many uses of the lichen. It grew across the outpost's stone spires, trees, rocks and man made structures.
The crime lord Oga Garra had a monopoly over the cultivation of Golden Lichen on Batuu as well as over its exportation to other planets. Many of the residents of Surabat Vicinity on Batuu were involved in the dangerous process of harvesting Golden Lichen for Garra, as it grew on the gigantic spires that surrounded their settlement.
Usages of Golden Lichen: Fuzzy Tauntaun
Fuzzy Tauntauns were yellow, fruity, alcoholic cocktails made with buzzz and Golden Lichen. They were named after the tauntaun species from Hoth. In 34 ABY, they were served at Oga's Cantina in Black Spire Outpost on the Outer Rim planet Batuu. Human mercenary Bazine Netal and former stormtrooper Archex were two beings who were unlikely to drink Fuzzy Tauntauns, but Weequay smuggler Hondo Ohnaka recommended them. Julen Rakab and Volt Vescuso drank them after Rakab thwarted Ana Tolla's attack on Kat Saka's farm.
Description: The Fuzzy Tauntaun was a yellow-colored, fruity, alcoholic cocktail served at Oga's Cantina in Black Spire Outpost on the Outer Rim planet Batuuin 34 ABY. It was made using a narcotic substance called buzzz which had a numbing effect on the drinker, and its dusting with gold-colored flakes of the valuable substance Golden Lichen made it one of the most expensive drinks at the establishment. Named after tauntauns, a snow lizard species, Fuzzy Tauntauns were served very cold like the creatures' native planet, Hoth.
In 34 ABY, the Weequaysmuggler Hondo Ohnaka personally recommended the drink to the humanmercenary Bazine Netal multiple times while she questioned him at Oga's Cantina during her search for the Millennium Falcon, a YT-1300 light freighter. She declined each time and asked him if she looked like the kind of person who drank the beverage; Ohnaka agreed that Netal did not.
