i have watched the movie julie and julia: 6 times. lol because..it is the only movie saved on my computer…and when slow internet prevails i always default back to that movie. it’s really weird because i love it every time i watch it….every. time.
during the movie you find out that julia child doesn’t like her blog and thinks she’s a joke and when i found this out i was very sad…and then i googled it 1. JC didn’t think julie took things very seriously ie. fudging with some recipes, talking more about alcohol than the food 2. didn’t portray the missed dinner with her editor properly 3. omg the meat book…w.t.f.
anyway…i don’t care about any of this. i’m really glad that i got to see julia child’s life w/o having to read letters about her. in fact, i think i like the julia child played by meryl streep better than the real life one…how sad. and i’m glad that amy adams played the main character because i don’t think i would’ve liked julie powell if it wasn’t her.
i really thought my mom's engrish was better...miss my dog
Hope all is well. Yesterday Spot ate half bag of the preserved Olives that we bought in Taiwan. He must jumped high and grabbed the bag from the formal dining table. Then, he threw up several times last night and this morning. What a mass. Please send all the Taiwan trip pictures to us.
Love you, Mom
i put my ring on…and now i can’t get it off. good thing i’m not in a store dressing room stuck in a corset that is way too small for my mamajama that the manager has to come in to cut it off (all credit to E, not me). whenever i try to not be in panic mode…my finger swells up more. hello jewel encrusted frog….my new commensalistic partner
i’ve noticed that everything here is really…i can’t think of a better word, so for now i’ll say splashy…bouncy? (= =). whenever i wash my face water really HITS my sink and gets everywhere. i mean even my sheets…when i spilled some red bean sauce on them it kind of bounced off of my sheets and i still had time to clean it up before it sopped in. i don’t know…but i do know that in my future house i want a large counter top - one to catch all of my water so that i can wipe it up and be done with it. …i digress lol
living near my aunt pro: eating lunch and spending time with her con: her running into me buying noodles afterward because i don’t understand the taiwanese love of italian food
it’s really frustrating when you can’t find one single rubberband. i mean i’ve even lost the headbands that i have make-shifted as rubberbands. now i’m using my camera usb cord…what. the. heck. where the hell are they
it’s always makes me nervous that asian skin gets darker before it heals. all these little ex-pimples…are. so. darkkkkkkkkk.
it’s amazing that ONE single eyebrow hair can create a significant hole. and then if you’re foolish and decide to follow through the pluck-line…you have ninja thin slut eyebrows. haha
bored. tired. hungry…..regretting that i haven’t taken that many pictures
my stomach has been feeling really acidic lately…lol is that an adjective that a stomach can feel? i tried to look up some basic foods and all that really borderlines pH 7-8 is eggs, soy milk, and tea. splendid…very asian. in fact tomorrow: the outfit that i planned includes a tokidoki shirt…i’ll blend right in = )
(lol i couldn’t find a picture…but this came up haha) 1. facial cotton pads here…are not made out of cotton. they are made out of this synthetic material that you would find wrapped around a brand new camera…or maybe a jar of jam - but squishier? yes…and these are sold in bulk…i bought 3 boxes of 200, i enjoy non-cotton facial cotton pads.
2. speaking of rubbery…the donuts are pretty rubbery too. every time i eat a mr. donut donut i’m placed in this conflicting situation as to whether i like it or not. i imagine it to be like eating a mochi that was boiled in hot pot soup - salty on the outside, but tastes really delicious like black sesame tong yuan. yes…i usually fight through and finish the whole thing +1. rubbery things feel light and fluffy…haha
3. pizza hut is like a cici’s on crack. just last week i saw this commercial for a fried shrimp and onion ring pizza. really?!?!?! no wonder all asian people are skinny fat…they eat this stuff dipped in coldstone and finished off with starbucks. haha i drink starbucks, don’t hate
4. man there were more and i thought i was so crever, but i forgot. and i guess there weren’t that many more…haha
i think it’s really cool to see people’s personalities through different things…haha okay? i mean when i sign into bankofamerica.com on someone else’s computer i think it’s interesting to see what he/she has chose as his/her sitekey picture. or when i sign into restaurant city = ) (still playing…lol) i find great insight into someone’s personality based on his/her restaurant’s name…lol jk but some people are pretty damn clever and great digitial (fake) interior decorators.
i wish my job could be to people watch and make pointless observations…and just because they came out of my mouth they would be very point-ful…haha jk again
i don’t know if this makes sense or not…but some really crazy shit has happened to me and i think the only reason why i could grasp/handle the situation was because i’m a girl. haha i mean there have been so many times when i’m glad that d was asleep………….little does he know what goes on
p.s. it’s better to take vitamin D with calcium = ) haha
1. bad news bears living by a bakery 2. starting House season 1 episode 1…hello renewal of megavideo membership = )
3. list of book recommendations so i won’t forget them The Passion by Jeanette Winterson Open by Andre Agassi The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet Sarah’s Key by Tatiana De Rosnay I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell by Max Tucker What I Thought I Knew by Alice Cohen
so i have decided…no matter how pretty white tile looks i want my future house to be carpeted…or at least a dark tile/wood. the endless bits of skin, hair, and random particles collecting on my perpetually not clean ground is driving me crazy. i have become this ocd that is always rolling the ground with my new lint roller on a big stick. if you knew me…i am not the person to be “clean” so i don’t know what has come over me. sniff sniff growing up…it’s weird how it’s hitting me here when i’ve lived on my own for a while now…why here…pretty much the dirtiest city period.
i bought some noodles from the night market today and thought they were pretty gross. lol i flushed them down the toilet…i hope that taipei’s sewage system can handle that. i mean they can’t even standardize their toilet paper products to all be made out of cotton (so that it dissolves) jigga what?
i’m really sad that hulu does not stream to international internet. i still visit the website to see which episodes i should be keeping up with…haha i love you hulu.com!!
p.s. did you know that men’s leg hairs look like pubes. i swear the couple that lived here before me either left a lot of pubies or leg hairs. i’m going to choose leg hairs….i’m going to continue to use dim lighting so i can’t see the leftover ones that i did not roll up. haha denial ftw
sometimes… i wish that i could trade all the free club cover…and drinks for the chance to be able to stay out as late as i want, ride in a taxi by myself, or even walk down a dark street without the 100x greater chance of being kidnapped or raped. mannnn all the free shit in the world isn’t as cool as being a dood.
man china air really does suck!! i felt really dehydrated and discriminated against. why did they only have 10 sandwiches to pass out in between meals…and why did they only offer them to everyone else but me!!!! lol
i’m guessing delta/china air doesn’t have a good movie contract so here is my review for the 7 movies i managed to watch…even though they were all pretty horrible
1. law abiding citizen - pretty good… 2. my one and only (feat. rene z) - cute, kind of heart warming 3. labor pains (feat. lindsay lohan) - horrible 4. the invention of lying (j garner) - horrible movie 5. the stepfather (feat. dan from gg and macnamara from nip/tuck) - horrible…ungodly horrible haha 6. NY, i love you (same producer as the paris, i love you) - pretty stupid 7. where the wild things are - i thought this movie sucked, and that boy needed to be slapped pow pow pow
freon smells like poop bits + bathroom water. or so i have deduced from every time i have turned on my sister’s freon-leaking heater
the best place to pluck your eyebrows is in your car. the close-range interaction with your mirror is perfect for reaffirming that you have bushy bushy eyebrows. your seat is positioned to be close, but not too close for optimum mirror usage. it’s kind of fun…to be in a novel environment to pluck eyebrows (much less boring than leaning over the sink counter in your bathroom). …pluck in an empty parking lot
lols i have really taken advantage of this sitting around havingnothing to do all day bt write stuff in my tumblr
1. always have this urge to paint my fingernails before i have to shower 2. want to eat chick-fila on a sunday (for people that don’t live in the south - chickfila is owned by a mormon and is closed on sunday) 3. fix my hair before i have to wash my face
maybe i (and humans) have this subconscious urge to do dumb shit - to rebel against being the most intelligent beings on earth. i remember this one time when E’s little brother was like, man it’s easier being dumber and not having to try as hard to get A’s. and when i heard that i responded with a capital “wtf, retarded”. but now…haha sometimes it is easier just to be stupid shit instead of logical and always doing what is (right)
speaking of ketchup, my sister told me about this funny british comedian whose bit was about americans and ketchup. why do americans put ketchup in the refrigerator? lols even though it says “no refrigeration required on the label” or restaurants don’t….hahaha i am definitely 100% guilty (p.s. i love ketchup)
speaking of long entries…i had a really cool feeling moment this morning. i was walking and putting on a sweatshirt (which i happened to put on backward), flipped the switch to my sister’s bathroom and thought to myself “hrm, her light is broken”. i think it took 5 seconds for me to realize that the “especially dark” darkness was due to a case of the mondays +1…..(tuesday).
so yesterday while i was driving i was stopped at a yield sign at a T where traffic was exiting the highway on the right of me and i needed to enter to my left. i was talking on the phone with my dad (illegal) but REALLY this old man (white hair, bald) had just exited the highway slowed down his car - honked at me and threw me a thumb’s down sign. dood…i know that talking and driving is bad, but stopping while exiting - i think that is much more dangerous, dear sir. wtf moment….didn’t know what to feel
why doesn’t anyone else other than subway put salt pepper oil and vinegar on their sandwiches??? haha C and i realized this and decided that everyone else is missing out

lol and i post this after protesting that i am not a fob because of my mahjong posts on facebook. but really, i’ve cried and teared (happy ones) and laughed and smiled with each one - sniff sniff, thank you useless dramas for filling that void in my life (stuffed animals are not free.com) haha
