Re: Today I Made:

I made a black bean burger with a huge jalapeno and peanut butter and cornmeal. Unfortunately, this delicious vegan thing had basically nothing holding it together (maybe I made it too big?) so it fell apart as I was eating it. Still hella yummy though.

I'd guess that anything word-only that Warren Ellis has produced must be influenced by graphic novels since that's where he came from, y'know?

Is it in a busy part of town? I'd bet it's a server storage facility/cable mess place. Whatever those things are called. There's a nice little history of them in a book called Networks of New York. I think you should try to enter it and document it in case it is SCP though.

It's more subtle than simply "approach", then? Indeed, although approach ... approaches the meaning. And is adequate. But doesn't include "perception" as a closeish synonym. "Way of relating to..." is also close, but loses some meaning. "Way of interacting with......
