Tomorrow.***** (5 updates!)
Tuesday. 4.15.08 5:41 pm
Firstly, an amusement.

It amuses me that people claim offense at the fact that I am staying away from all of the hullabaloo of tomorrow and wish to stay away from it. I find it almost doubly amusing that most everyone I know that is either one or two degrees away from someone killed or injured is also staying the fuck away from campus and everything involved with tomorrow. Well, except for whatsherface, Donnell knows who I'm talking about (but he doesn't read this, oh well), you just KNOW she will be all over the telly.

I'm going outside to hula hoop. All day. Maybe I'll come in and do some homework and studying. Maybe I'll bake some brownies to give people while I hula hoop. I'm not going to wear any black. Nor any orange or maroon, or anything VT-related. I plan to yell at any media person that comes to talk to me.

smistasan thinks they will try to spin that I am hooping "in honor" of people. I will say to them "does my hoop LOOK like it says "we are va tech we will prevail? do I LOOK like a zombie?! no!!!"" It would be pretty funny if that happened.

Now for the tomorrow.

It's been a year. Woo. Time for the hullabaloo. Anyone who knows/pays attention knows that I strongly dislike the college newspaper, and have written more than plenty entries on the use of dates to mark an event, when they are used as just a date, nothing more. Sure, it means something to the people involved... but otherwise, it's just a date. They have a section labeled "April 16". This annoys me. The date happens every year. SPECIFY, DAMNIT. Beh.

Also, the hullabaloo. OH god, the hullabaloo. I've already said what I think of the hullabaloo, so now this post is over.

Oh! Now I've remembered another important thing. It's going to be a year later, and still... what is known? I want to know things, and knowing this damn school, I probably won't ever know them. Thanks.

Also, there are signs all on the buildings "zomg media stay away".

What good are these signs if they are obscured by window-bars?

I keep editing this, hence all of the stars... There's so much hullabaloo about tomorrow, when most all of the people died, but what about the next two weeks... there's funeral anniversaries... what about those?

Also, I've seen signs about town saying that tonight, hooptie ride is offering free rides until 3a. I imagine they expect people to go and attempt to drink their sorrows away? Again, I think most people are probably locking themselves away after they were done with classes today. Though surprisingly, I don't hear any drunks... go figure.

Today is Dave's birthday.

I baked him a cake.

Not just any cake...

A Flame Cake!

I was putting the candles in, decided 23 would have been too many, and put in only 12 instead. Then I thought, hrm, if I am alternating candles, why not stick four together in the middle.

It started off kinda boring, then got to be like the first picture, and then it went FOOM like fires are wont to do. Ok, not quite FOOM but it was a healthy flame, as can be seen in the second picture.

There isn't much difference between white cake mix and vanilla cake mix... :/

I ordered a shirt and it came today!

Woohoo! Now it needs to get warm so I can wear it.

I ordered the matching necklace, but it did not get here today.

My shirt also came with some random things, a pin and a set of those cheap-tacular monster/vampire fangs.

Raaah! *gnashes fangs*

Also, if I have a kitty and an office desk, I will need one of these.

It is me! in my shirt.

More Asian-shoppery(and lemon babies)
Saturday. 4.12.08 7:21 pm
I realize this post is long and rambly. If you want to "get to the point", as people like for me to do, you can search for the string "*****" (five asterisks, no quotes). Lemonbabies has six asterisks.

I've been wanting some bottled barley tea/drink the past few days, so I took a trek to the the local shop that caters more to Asians(of the Chinese/Japanese persuasion, it seems) than it does "The world", like the other local shop.

This shop has a $5 minimum purchase for using cards, and I figured the tea would probably be two dollars or so, and I would get two and a snack-thing, maybe some broadbeans (om nom nom. nom nom)

They only had oolong tea, so I got no tea. I got some mirin, because I see it in all of the recipies I'd like to try. There was was HUGE bottle of salted rice wine, but I decided that I probably didn't need that much. I'm sure it probably would have been much pricier in the "international" section of local "large" grocer, or even the "world" shop.

Anyway. They had some jelly mix, like the little cups of jelly from way back when that had the .5cm2 chunk of coconut in them, but they got pulled off of the market when kids choked on them because their parents couldn't supervise them well enough. Grr. They remade them without that massive hunk of coconut, but it's not the same. Anyway, I bought this packet of jelly mix. I can't wait to make it.

At this point, I think I was up to about 4 dollars in purchases. I found some green tea pumpkin seeds, which sounded slightly awkward. Just a bit.

I go to the refrigerated section to look for the tea, and perhaps some other tasties (world food market will get the 1-up in that it has green tea mochi... it looks so tasty!). I see the little yogurt-milk drinks that are awesome, but I don't want any.

I eventually see "green bean ice milk bar". Green beans? What kind of green beans? I guess I could have read the ingredients... but green beans? Was it edamame and green tea? Was it generic flavorless bean dyed green in green tea? Was it... String beans? Peas? That would have been a bit awkward. Well, the string beans. Peas are almost always awesome. Having almost faithfully watched Jackie Chan Adventures, I wondered if it were mung beans... which I have never had, and was not willing to try in a confection just yet.

*****(What follows is the point of the story)*****

Then I see "sesame ice milk bar". Sesame done right is always tasty. Sesame done wrong makes me slightly ill. It was black, like sesame things are wont to be, and the idea was a bit offputting. Maybe there is someth... oooh, Red bean! AND jelly! This bodes well. (Okay, maybe not for that guy... but for me, yes. Then again... maybe not for me.)

I ask the clerk (who was exceedingly friendly when I came in) how much they were. $2.79, not horrid, not awesome either. A good price for an experimental try. I went to buy them, and he seemed surprised/impressed that I was buying something with red beans in it. Maybe people "like me"(non-asian, obviously) come in and don't like red beans? Who knows. I told him that I thought red bean stuff was pretty darn awesome, and he thought that was pretty cool. Go figure.

So on to this bar. I decide that it would be nice to have one whilst walking back to Dave's. I open the bar. It is red beany... and green. Green? Um, okay. It tasted like coconut and red bean, and there was a ton of beans in it. The green things were the jelly, where I'd expected the jelly to be worked into the texture of the bar. They didn't have any taste to them, and they reminded me of gummy worms. I guess they were there to break the monotony of beans and ice-milk? It would have been fine without the green-things, but they did make it a bit more fun to eat.

Maybe I'll be adventurous and try the "green bean" one next time. The beans on the package are the same kind of bean, so if anyone wants to offer a "wtf is this", go ahead.

******(Other point)******

Lemon babies. I think it is highlarious. Dave thinks I'm rather awful. I probably won't be a good parent at all, if I ever have kids... I'd be so mean.

Weddings. Bah.
Wednesday. 4.9.08 1:18 pm
So apparently it is wedding season.

I can not go five ficking femtoseconds without having wedding crap flung around.

My favorite websites, my classes... AUGH.

Anyway, I'm griping about this because in my floral design class today (That I actually decided to go to, but not fields, because apparently I am on the verge of having a massive issue, but I really didn't need to go to floral design) the guy spends the WHOLE DAMN CLASS talking about wedding arrangements he's made.


What made it worse, was some little girlygirl in the back kept hemming and hawing "anh" "oh" "awwwww" at EVERY. LITTLE. THING. I wanted to smack her.

Maybe she's in school to find a husband.

AHA! I have a positive, yes, yes, I do. I think I will make a point to have a positive in every entry. I could use some of that right now.

Damnit, there's a negative in here... oh well. I went to Starbucks (gasp gasp) last night, after hearing about their fancy new Pike Place roast that they set free yesterday.

I ordered "whatever the largest size is" of it, even though I couldn't find the price on the menu. I figured it couldn't be too exorbitantly pricey, it came to 2.15. I pay that much on campus for what I guess would be the next size down, even though I get to use meal plan, so it's technically half-price, 1.075.

So I leave Starbucks, having actually given them money (something I took pride in... I guess because of all of the people who can't live without their 5 dollar cup of crap with a drop of coffee... yes, I'm a bit of a snob. Just a teensy bit. Not ZOMG I GROW MY OWN BEANZES AND ROAST THEM AND GRIND THEM FIVE FEMTOSECONDS BEFORE I BREW THEM IN MY 1500 BREWER!!! snobby, though. I think it's more the spoiled attitude and perceived high-maintinosity vibe that I get from people who order things like that, why can't they be simple and just order coffee? Why mask the coffee with everything and it's brother? Why even bother at that point? Anyway.), with my cup of coffee. I sip it, it is VERY hot. Good. I sip it again. It is STILL very hot. 10-15 minutes later, is it still quite warm and toasty, and I have eaten a sammich in the meanwhile. Crazy!

It was good with rolos, but I was not getting the chocolate-nuttiness I'd heard it described as. Oh well, it was still good coffee. Just not for 2.15.

Good, but not.
Monday. 4.7.08 8:25 pm
So, Virginia has been in the news recently for mandating web safety courses.

Good idea.

At the same time, will they offer it every year? Will they have some way of tracking who's taken it? Will they explain that not all internetcreeps are gay pedophiles?

Will they explain that people's personalities are shown to change when they can be "anonymous", and that most people will become asshole-tacular?

I'm glad they are doing this, I hope they don't ruin the internet for anyone who is interested in it research-wise.

It would really suck if they made obviously web-savvy students sit through this, and not test out.

Hopefully it will result in more people knowing wtf WiFi is...
