A few words
"When we describe the Moon as dead, we are describing the deadness in ourselves. When we find space so hideously void, we are describing our own unbearable emptiness."
~ D.H. Lawrence
"Is the meaning of life defined by its duration? Or does life have a purpose so large that it doesn't have to be prolonged at any cost to preserve its meaning?"
"Living is not good, but living well. The wise man, therefore, lives as well as he should, not as long as he can... He will always think of life in terms of quality not quantity... Dying early or late is of no relevance, dying well or ill is... even if it is true that while there is life there is hope, life is not to be bought at any cost."
"People will tell you nothing matters, the whole world's about to end soon anyway. Those people are looking at life the wrong way. I mean, things don't need to last forever to be perfect."
~ Daydream Nation
"All Bette's stories have happy endings. That's because she knows where to stop. She's realized the real problem with stories-- if you keep them going long enough, they always end in death."
~ The Sandman: Preludes & Nocturnes
"The road now stretched across open country, and it occurred to me - not by way of protest, not as a symbol, or anything like that, but merely as a novel experience - that since I had disregarded all laws of humanity, I might as well disregard the rules of traffic. So I crossed to the left side of the highway and checked the feeling, and the feeling was good. It was a pleasant diaphragmal melting, with elements of diffused tactility, all this enhanced by the thought that nothing could be nearer to the elimination of basic physical laws than deliberately driving on the wrong site of the road."
~ Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita
"It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend."
~ William Blake

Tacos and a dead baby bird
Tuesday, May 7, 2013
I don't feel like talking much but I wanted to post.
Here is a picture from when I was on cam in a chatroom. Sort of.
You can see the bear's face in the upper left corner of the cam frames.
I made tacos awhile ago and documented the process.
Usually I only use half a package of soy chorizo, but I made a double portion of filling this time so I used the whole package.
I usually brown it in a frying pan so that it's a little drier and add a little extra spice.
A sprinkling of cumin and chili powder to taste. The chorizo is already seasoned but I prefer more seasoning.
The browned soy chorizo gets added to refried black beans... One can per half package generally.
I used two here. I don't think it's possible to make refried beans look appetizing in a picture. You could also mix a whole package of the soy chorizo with one can of refried beans, it just ends up more crumbly. The beans just act as a glue to hold the soy chorizo together.
Here is the finished filling, which, while tasty, does not look very good in pictures.
While the beans are heating up and the soy chorizo is browning it's usually a good idea to heat the taco shells so that they're crispy.
It's also good to chop up the lettuce.
I prefer hearts of romaine because they're crisper, but the greens could really be anything depending on your taste.
And also grate your cheese. My favorite is Tillamook medium cheddar.
How fine you grate it depends on your personal preferences. Personally I think that the medium grate like this make the cheese fall off the taco more easily, so I prefer grating it finer, but my mom likes the medium more.
Assembled product. Sorry it's a bit dark.
My parents prefer to put the cheese on top of the filling, under the lettuce, so that it melts, but I like doing it this way because I like the lettuce/cheese taste more than the melted cheese/filling taste.
It's really really easy to make these tacos. I don't think it ever takes more than 20 minutes if you're doing it alone. Usually I ask my mom to help cut the lettuce or grate the cheese so it gets done much faster. I don't know the exact nutritional facts but all things considered, it's not too unhealthy. There's probably a lot of sodium from the soy chorizo and cheese, but it really just depends on how you fill your taco.
I went precinct walking on Saturday with my boyfriend and there was a dead baby bird on one of the doormats.
Later that day we went to the cafe we visited with Lucy before and got some dessert. I got a chocolate pot de crème.
He got a cappuccino and an affogato.
Here is the inside of my pot de crème.
It was very, very good.

I saw this on Tumblr. One of the comments on it was "I feel fuzzy inside just looking at this."
This is by far the rapiest sloth I have ever seen.

I've opened up my story again, the science fiction one I started months ago.
The background info and notes are nearly as long as the story itself, haha.
Alice saw that I was working on it while I sat in her poetry class Monday. She asked if she could read it once it's done.
You know, even though I have no qualms about sharing it with my writing group or even people on Nutang, I feel weird about letting her read it.
Even though I haven't written that much of it, it feels like this oddly personal thing that I want to hide from her. Maybe it's just because I'm afraid she would question what the story says about me personally? Obviously some of my viewpoints are manifested through it, but I'm not writing the main character as some sort of stand-in for myself.
I have similar feelings about my poetry. I don't tend to share it with people I know "in real life"-- it just seems like it would... compromise my persona?
Lots of ideas floating around right now for the story. It is 2:12 AM though and I think this is not the best time to work on it too much.
Walt Disney, ughhh
Saturday, April 20, 2013
I went to the Walt Disney Family Museum up in San Francisco with my mom today. It was basically Walt Disney's biography tacked all over the walls with some pictures, animations, and figurines here and there.
Usually I like museums, but this one was rather boring for me. I'm not really into biographies, especially not ones that cover seventeen rooms.
The animation techniques interested me though, so it wasn't an entirely dull experience.
Saw Oz: The Great and Powerful with my boyfriend last night. It wasn't a very good movie except for James Franco's hilarious expressions as a sleazy conman character. I mean, I wasn't expecting greatness, but this movie felt very flat to me. I think they could have shown more of the Oz environment. What they did show was nice, and I liked that, but mostly it was like, flowers and plants. There were... that I recall, three or four animal species shown.
One of my favorite parts of the Oz books has always been the plants and animals of Oz, like the tree that grows lunch pails. They don't really make sense in any logical way but they're exactly what the characters need and I always liked that. I feel like I've never seen an Oz movie that did true justice to the environment of Oz.
Does this picture make you feel uncomfortable?
It makes me feel uncomfortable.

Movin' on up
Tuesday, April 16, 2013
I have been on the Spongebob 3D film moving ride thingy at Great America (I don't know what they're actually called, but it's that kind of ride where you watch a movie and the seats move and stuff) and waited in line for it enough times that the video they show you while you wait is burned into my memory.
Basically it's just a badly rendered 3D Spongebob standing in line and reminiscing about his life. Every time he gets to go forward in the line he says "movin' on up!" and this fish behind him gets increasingly irritated.
My boyfriend has been getting all sorts of job offers recently since he made a LinkedIn profile, so every time I think about how well he's doing that Spongebob voice pops into my head and says that.
He had an interview with Facebook today that he doesn't think he passed, but he didn't expect to. I think he's also got a couple more interviews to do with Chegg (he got through the first one already). He's valuable to his current company, so his boss said that he'll match an offer if my boyfriend gets like... an offer letter, and even if there's no letter, they're still going to raise his salary by 15%.
It's pretty cool. :3
He says that if he goes to work for Chegg he'll take me on another trip after New York. I'm getting so spoiledddddddddddddddddd. Heehee.
"Struggle" is a really funny word when you look at it.

I had a dream that I was waiting in a car with Unicornasaurus while my boyfriend ran an errand. It was kind of hot in there, so we got out and were waiting around, and this guy I sort of knew from school walked up and said hi. We chatted with him for a bit and it turned out he and Unicorn had a lot in common. I only really remember them being excited to find out they were both into cars and French.
It got closer to when my boyfriend was supposed to be back, so I went to sit in the car again, but Unicornasaurus was gone. I exited the car again and walked over to a different car in the lot and found her inside. She said she was going to go with the guy from school to hang out, because they'd hit it off so well.
He seemed like a pretty nice dude, so I nodded and went back to wait by myself. Secretly, I was pleased that they liked each other, because I had always wanted to set up two of my friends.
Not related to anything else but here is a song I like. "Vagabond" by Greenskeepers.
