Thanks to everyone who wished me Happy Birthday on Tuesday! ♥ ♥ ♥

Having a birthday that's during the week is always kind of bleh, because you can't really go out and do stuff on a Tuesday. Boo. I had a low-key birthday day, but I still had a pleasant day that made me happy, so that's always good. Maybe this weekend I'll be able to meet up with friends and have lunch or dinner or something. I get free desserts at TGI Friday's and Buffalo Wild Wings. :3

And I found out that the Inland Empire's First Annual Chocolate Festival is being held on April 21st. XDDDDDD! I think I'm going to make that my "birthday" event, even if it's like 2 weeks after my actual bday. It's worth it for chocolate and wine tastings. Yum~

Anyway, the birthday haul... which isn't very much since I don't get presents from anyone in my family, not even my parents. So let's make this Free Stuff (or heavily discounted) I Got For My Birthday instead.

-- Sugar Kisses Mini Lip Duo Set from Sephora
-- free truffle FUCK YOU TOO GODIVA
-- Buy One Get One Free ice cream from Coldstone (I got Birthday Cake Remix, of course, and Oreo Overload)
-- $25 Gamestop giftcard (okay, this is a promo from eRewards that I earned, but I'm totally counting it even if it's still being shipped to me)
-- 50% off some pretty crystals I've been lusting after at Michaels. TRUEFAX: they released a one day coupon valid only on my bday, so I went to see what they had since I was out already. I thought they'd sold out of the crystals I liked months ago and never restocked them (I've been checking diligently) but I managed to find ONE STRAND buried behind a bunch of other beads in a totally different section. It is fate. So I got them. :3
-- Wishes and kisses from friends... too many to count ♥

So I was watching the finale of Worst Cooks in America while I was having my lunch. I love that show because it's amazing how many fires can be accidentally set during one episode. Anyway, I missed the finale when it first aired, so I was glad to catch a re-run on The Food Network by chance. Woo TV. \o/

Anyway, one thing that bothered me was that Bobby Flay's cook (okay okay everyone knows I hate Bobby Flay but I liked the cook all through the season) had to make creme brulee for the final dessert to be served to the judges. During his test run, the guy accidentally got water into his creme brulee, so it didn't set-up properly and was basically ruined.

... for those who don't know, when you cook creme brulee (which is a custard), it has to be cooked in a water bath. Then you let the whole thing set up in the fridge before you torch the top. But if you get any water into the custard (say, from the water in the pan for the water bath), the custard will NOT set up and instead will be runny and ick. But you don't know it's ruined until you actually stick a fork in to eat.

So the cook was very careful when he was carrying his pan (filled with water for the bath and the ramekins of creme) to the oven to cook, but still managed to get a little water spilling in without his knowing about it, thus, ruined creme brulee. He was very careful again during the final cook-off for the judges, so 2 of his brulees came out perfectly. But one got water in it and was ruined (poor Marcus Samuelsson he didn't get to eat dessert).

SO.

What made me angry? Is why didn't Bobby Flay tell the cook to do WHAT PROFESSIONAL CHEFS DO (and what Alton Brown said on Good Eats)..................

PUT THE RAMEKINS IN THE PAN, PUT THE PAN IN THE OVEN AND THEN FILL THE PAN WITH WATER FOR THE WATER BATH USING A PITCHER OR GLASS OR SOMETHING.

That way you're not filling a pan with water then having the water slosh around while you carry it to the oven.

I mean, jeeze. Not that I make a ton of creme brulee, but doesn't it make sense to not carry a sloshing pan of water when you know water will ruin your creme brulee?

Sigh.

That was my little annoyance for the day.

The two chocolate bunnies still live, upon my gracious mercy.

They have not, however, begun to reproduce.

Alas, that my nefarious plans have been overthrown once more.
windandwater: (THIS is Sparta!)
On the kitchen counter/bar are two chocolate bunnies. Not Godiva though. The fuckers. But they're Dove, which makes me happy. Also, I had a dollar off coupon for them, so yay for me being cheap. Anyway, not only are they chocolate bunnies, they are chocolate fairy bunnies, which means they have delicious ears and wings for me to gnaw off.

I must be strong. I must not eat them until Easter. I can do this.











.................... or I can eat one, and save one for Easter. Yes. Yes, this sounds like a good idea, too.
windandwater: (Mistress Sera Says)
I just got an e-mail from Godiva, inviting me to make a custom Easter basket at their boutiques, and you get a free basket, ribbon and trimmings.

Ash Wednesday! Time to repent for all the sinning you did on Mardi Gras. XD!

But now it's officially Lent, which means no meat for me on Fridays. Boo. :x And, as usual, now is when I really crave a cheeseburger with bacon. *crai*

Anyway, to mix it up this year, instead of giving up something for Lent (uh besides abstaining from meat on Fridays), I've decided to do something instead. I'm going to try my hardest to make 40 new jewelry pieces for Que Sera Designs. One new piece of jewelry a day, for every day of Lent. At least. Hopefully. :/

I already have the pieces to make a cute necklace for spring! That will be my first project, starting today.

On the jewelry front, I'm also working on designs for the jewelry design contest that is being run by the Southern California Local Bead Store Association. There's some nice prizes, and I'm trying to come up with a fabulous design to really wow the judges. Thankfully, the piece isn't due until June-ish.

Wish me luck!

First of all, to get this out of the way...

*stabs ovaries*

Also, having to wander around a grocery store early in the morning without breakfast and on your period sucks hardcore. I only survived because of Super Plus tampons and the free hazelnut coffee. It was delicious and I had two cups. Then I knocked back Advil from the new bottle I bought at the store. That made things much much better.

Second, and totally unrelated, a meme! Just because I feel in a meme-y mood. 'tis the season and all that. ♥

Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you between one and three sentences from that story.

GUESS WHO FINALLY HAS A PSP, BITCHES?!

THAT'S RIGHT.

ME.

And not only that, I got it for practically free, since I've been hoarding gift cards for a year. For the price of one new game, I got myself a shiny new PSP (black) and 3 games: Patapon, Knights in the Nightmare, and Jeanne d'Arc. I would've gotten Crisis Core, but they were missing the disk when I went up to pay, which made me all ;___;. But I think I'll be happy for now.

... until I start getting new PSP games for Christmas and birthdays.

>_>;;

I want Kingdom hearts: Birth By Sleep, Dissidia, Dissidia Duodecium, and Crisis Core.

BUT YES.

I AM SO EXCITE.

THERE IS NO HIGH LIKE THE GETTING STUFF AT A BARGAIN HIGH.

HAPPY TURKEY DAY!!!

Let the ravenous feast begin!

And, because I'm in a holiday mood, I'll give you one of my tips for having a very delicious turkey with crispy skin. Before chucking the turkey into the oven, places nice-sized pats of butter on the top of the turkey where the turkey is 'flattest', i.e.: where the butter won't slide off right away while it melts. Don't forget to put good-sized pats in the joints, like where the leg meets the breast and the wing joints.

Put your turkey in the oven and let it roast.

Periodically, (after those first pats have melted into deliciousness) rub the turkey with more butter, especially in places that don't seem like they're getting brown enough (like the sides). The heat of the turkey and the oven will melt the butter as you rub, so you might as well reserve a whole stick for turkey duty.

No, this is not something to do if you're counting calories, but fuck that it's Thanksgiving.

If you use one whole stick of butter on your turkey (maybe more if it's big), you should apply butter roughly three times: the first application when the turkey is cold at the beginning, a rub with butter about halfway through, and another rub with butter about an hour before the turkey finishes cooking. Your turkey skin will be golden and delicious and moist and flavorful, and doing this also means you won't have to baste your turkey, because the butter will work its way into the meat as well.

For more flavor, consider using an herb butter (homemade is just fine) to add more 'omph'.

Devour with impunity! Enjoy!



... P.S. The butter trick also works with roasting chicken. But you use considerably less butter. ♥

The season finale for Deadliest Warrior is Vampires vs. Zombies!!!

Fuck yes I'm watching this.


EDIT...

Okay, a little annoyed over the discussion on whether the zombie virus can affect vampires. The answer is obviously no. :/ Vampires are undead. Their bodies are physically dead, so they wouldn't catch the zombie virus, or be able of passing it along. Also, as they are already dead (or undead), zombies would probably ignore vampires if they aren't attacked first. Zombies want to infect the living to make more zombies.

RE-EDIT...

Vampires can think. :/ I think they're forgetting that vampires can use shotguns. A vampire with a shot gun means the zombies would never win.

EDIT AGAIN...

I wonder if they're gonna bring up the "rotting" issue. Zombies are very effective, but as they are animated corpses, their bodies will eventually rot and decay.

Funny story: I started getting lower back pains earlier this week that usually signals the incoming red tide. I told my ovaries very firmly that they could not start up until after Thursday, since that was Art Walk and I had to be out and selling my stuff. They obeyed. Until I woke up on Friday.

Okay. So. I've been watching MTV recently because I got caught up with this season of America's Best Dance Crew. Hush. I think the teams are really talented and I'm very torn between Iconic Boys and I Am Me at the moment, who will be going head-to-head in the finals.

ANYWAY.

Because I've been watching ABDC, I've been unfortunately treated to repetitive MTV commercials pimping out their new shows (when I don't change the channel to Food Network or something that is). And one of MTV's new shows is something titled, I shit you not, Teen Wolf.

I GIVE YOU THREE GUESS WHAT THIS SHOW IS ABOUT AND THE FIRST TWO DON'T COUNT.

So, yeah. Shitty new teen/young adult show meant to snag onto the whole Twatlight/vampire craze that's currently popular, except this time it's Twatlight with werewolves. Even from the commercials this show looks terrible, in ways that make someone who likes classic horror/vampire/werewolves (me!) want to rage.

Premise of the show is that teenage boy gets infected by werewolf and now has to deal with it. Enter pretty new classmate, who he is very attracted to, but OHNOES every time he's around her he gets all wolfy and doesn't want to inflict his curse on anyone else. How do I dislike this show? Let me count the ways.

1) The new girl's name is Bella Swan Allison Argent. Argent. ARGENT. THE WEREWOLF BOY IS ATTRACTED TO A GIRL NAMED ARGENT. *froths at the mouth*

... for those too lazy to wiki, argent means "silver". >_>;;

2) Werewolf boy gets 'wolfy' when his blood pressure rises, or he gets angry/excited/upset/emotional/whatever.

WHAT. HE IS A TEENAGE BOY. IS HE GOING TO GET WOLFY EVERY TIME HE POPS A BONER. THIS WOULD BE HILARIOUS IN A TRAGIC WAY.

3) It reeks of Twatlight. 'nuff said.

4) I don't know if there's going to be classic turns at the full moon wolfy stuff, but it does look like werewolves are pretty feral killing machines. That's one plus, but it doesn't forgive all the other horrible things.

5) I have no fifth point. Except that maybe people need to start being original and not riding the wave of current popularity. But if you're going to ride that wave, at least do something different.

AND COME UP WITH A BETTER FUCKING TITLE THAN 'TEEN WOLF.' THAT WAS AN 80s FILM.


....................... *goes away to chew on things*


EDIT...

IT GETS EVEN BETTER.

I just saw a new commercial and guess what? Guess what?! That silver girl? HER DAD IS TOTALLY A WEREWOLF HUNTER. I guess the name 'Argent' becomes suddenly relevant.

But still stupid.

First, HAPPY PI DAY! Geeky holidays are some of the best holidays. ^^ So everyone get your 3.14 on!

Second, I was reminded last week by [personal profile] sukino that my birthday is fast approaching. A little under a month now. =___=;; I'm not quite sure how I feel about this. It's just another year older, but it doesn't really change anything about me except a number. Maybe I'm just being depressed because of the ongoing cold weather (woo S.A.D.) but I can't seem to muster up enough enthusiasm about my birthday like I usually do. Maybe that will change when it hits April, but I'm not sure.

Frankly, it'll just be the day I get older, I only get presents from my friends (my parents stopped giving me presents for my birthday and holidays a long time ago and my relatives barely remember when my birthday is) which are lovely, and I get free things from the places I have rewards cards for (free Godiva and Sephora stuff is not to be sneezed at). Maybe I'll just have a quiet birthday this year. I've had various conversations from friends about how I'm usually the one who does something big or goes somewhere on my birthday, while everyone else keeps things low-key. But right now I just feel "blah" about everything. Maybe I should be a bear and just hibernate until the warm weather comes.

Anyway, because I might as well try to cheer myself up by being ruthlessly materialistic, here is my birthday (and all-around holiday or whatever) wishlist.

Things I Want:

-- a job (probably not anything anyone can give me)
-- to win the lottery (ditto above)
-- a Vespa (third time's a charm)
-- handmade things, which includes fics and fanart
-- stuff from my Etsy Favorites (PROTIP: I've actually taken up jewelry-making as a bit of a hobby. I think it's fun, keeps me busy, and is very non-stressful. Plus, I like making pretty things. So a lot of the stuff on my Etsy faves are either supplies or jewelry kits that I'd like to make.)
-- stuff from my Amazon wishlist (this is where the PSP greedy materialism comes in)
-- nothing terrible to happen
-- Cadbury Creme Eggs (my bday is two weeks before Easter woo)
-- IDK some other things that I can't think of at the moment

There. I think I'm done wallowing in my own emo for the moment. Time to go do something useful. Or eat ice cream. Whatever.

Dropped by the mall today on the way home to pick up a freebie bag from Godiva (rewards club perk~) and managed to snag a free Red Velvet Cake truffle, and the free panty from Victoria's Secret (another rewards club perk, I love free things). While I was window shopping, I walked by Macy's and happened to notice some very... colorful standees in front of the makeup counter by the entrance, advertising something or another. They were drawn in "life-size" anime-ish style. And I had to do a double take, because first thing I thought when I saw the standees was:

Why are they using Bridget to advertise perfume? I mean, I know Bridget is cute, but also a trap. Possibly not the best way to advertise a legitimate product not related to the Guilty Gear games.

I was a bit boggled, but kept walking. However, at the food court, I was accosted by more of the standees and a lady passing out flyers. I then found out that, no, they're not representations of Bridget, but of Paris Hilton, to advertise her new fragrance line. I guess she's trying to the Gwen Stefani Harajuku thing except five years late.

Somehow, I'd be more impressed if it was actually Bridget.

This thread from [community profile] ontd_political has the absolute most hilarious comments ever. How can you not like a thread with gems like this:

Most people outside of the U.S. don't realize this, but the delegates of the Constitutional Convention were overwhelmingly composed of two prominent groups within early American society: zombies and vampires.

Ben Franklin, of course, was a werewolf.


And this:

I seriously think that everyone in the Tea Party thinks the Founding Fathers were like the Justice League or something, battling evil, tyranny and injustice everywhere they found it. The Founding Fathers were NOT a superhero team, completely infallible and always right. Although the thought of George Washington as Superman, Thomas Jefferson as Batman and Ben Franklin as the Flash is an amusing thought.

And, of course, this beautiful summation of history wherein it is explained how the Founding Fathers abolished slavery:

john adams and john hancock. see, they built a time mechine, and used to to lanch them selfs forwards in time and join forces with ab lincon after there time mechine exploded upon reentry. together, the trio hacked, slashed, shot and killed there way across the south, till they finaly had an epic duel with the forces of slavery in the captial of the confedates. john adams, an old man, was mortaly wounded, and lay dieing. then, albert enstine steped in. claiming that history must be repaired, he took adams and hancock, and transported them back to there own time, lieing adams upon his death bed.

then, with his work complate, slavery abolished, and the time line restored, enstine nodded with statsfaction, and went to pick up stephen hawking, for there own trip to the future...



Politics, comics, and time traveling zombie historical figures. Of course I love this stuff.

... for huddling under tons of blankets. D:

I was really worried that the weather would continue to do the psychotic thing of being cold and stormy for one week, then 100+ degrees the next, but that doesn't seem to be the case. On one hand, I'm glad of non-psycho weather. On the other, IT IS FREEZING. Literally! It was 34 degrees the past two nights. It'll be hitting 30 tonight, I think. I'm almost afraid to look.

So, in honor of the season, I have busted out with my flannel sheets. ilu flannel sheets T_T ♥. They're so warm and cozy and make me not want to roll out of bed. Unfortunately, they also make me have kind of static-y hair. Bleh. It's the price I pay to stay warm, I guess.

So yes, it is overcast and rainy and windy and cold, and will likely stay this way for Turkey Day. When relatives are coming for dinner. Blargh.

In other news, there are things that I want to babble about in a geeky way. But I'm lazy. And cold. And can't feel my fingers and so I'm typing horribly. :x But I have such an urge to babble/rant/be meta. Like about The Walking Dead. Or maybe Ice Road Truckers: Deadliest Roads. Or even Top Chef: Just Desserts.

All I have to say about the new The Walking Dead TV series on A&E is...

that poor horse.

I knew it. I KNEW that would happen to the horse. Dammit, horse! It's a zombie apocalypse! Don't let some dumbass ride you into a major city full of zombies. I thought animals were supposed to have better senses and know when shit like this happens. YOU SHOULD HAVE STAYED ON THE FARM, HORSE.

Anyway, the series looks good (only 6 episodes for the first season, too!) and I like how it was more like a movie than a TV episode. The special effects on the zombies were well done. But I am skeptical on how well this series will do, since the tone of the comics gets really damn dark really damn fast. This is not Happy Shiny Funtiems Zombie Apocalypse. This is We Have Become The Monsters Zombie Apocalypse.

But I read that they've got the second season already ordered and oh-so-crazy Michonne will be showing up. LOLZ. I wonder how the series will handle her for the primetime TV audience.

There are more gay men on Top Chef Just Desserts than on a season of Project Runway. XD;; And they're all such queens, it's amazing. One cheftestant is even called the "Ice Queen" because, as he explained himself, his desserts are cold and he's gay (he specializes in gelato).

I may just enjoy this series for the camp factor. And to possibly see a catfight.

Also, I have to agree with a statement that was made during the show. All pastry chefs could become good regular chefs, but a regular chef will be at best a mediocre pastry chef. We've seen that a million time on the regular Top Chef seasons.

I'm currently having an argument with someone on Facebook.

(As an aside, you can find me there under my real name, so friend me if you like! Just make sure to leave a message that says you know my from LJ.)

It's not really an argument per se, because those who know me know that when I get angry, I get really cold and overly polite. Because I believe that you should be logical and polite, even if you think the other person is a raging douchebag who should be taken out back and beaten with a flaming baseball bat. But this is... different. See, I friended This Guy mostly because he's another friend's BF/fiancee/whatever, and because I wanted another Farmville neighbor. >_>;;

cut for political beliefs, mild ranting, pettiness, and the issue that sent me into a rage )

Anyway.

I think I'm done ranting.

Let's see if this political post causes another flame war in my LJ. I think I'm running 2-for-2 on that front. I really hate it when that happens. Maybe I should just stick with silly ranting about food and chibi pr0n.

The 'conversation' has ended, even though I could've answered back because This Guy's last line made my brain explode. But I just decided that I'd have more luck squeezing blood from stone.

Now I'm considering putting the whole 'discussion' here for posterity reasons. And to see if anyone thinks I was being too... zesty.

WHY HASN'T ANYONE BEEN MAKING NOISE ABOUT THIS YET?!

Frozen Teardrop (2010): A novel written by the series' head writer Katsuyuki Sumisawa and serialized in Gundam Ace Magazine. Set some time after the end of the series in the date "MC 0002" on Mars, it focuses on Kathy Po, Sally's daughter and a Preventer agent, receiving historical documents from President Dorothy Catalonia and orders to initiate "Operation Mythos" and "awaken Sleeping Beauty/Princess Aurora". According to the writer's interview preceding it, the series will feature the 5 pilots, Relena, and "the children of Duo, Heero, etc.", jumping back and forth in points of time between AC 195 and the future, and is intended to act as a bridge to a possible sequel.

*FLAILS AROUND IN FANGIRL JOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOYYYYYYYYYYYYYY*

Also, I managed to find a summary of the prologue, and of course, the part I focused on was this:

# A voice is heard behind Kathy, "You’re just like your mother."
# Appearing was a middle aged man in black priests clothes with a young boy with long hair tied in a braid.
# The middle-aged man who appeared at random was nothing but smiles. "I’m Father Maxwell. The Father Maxwell who may run and hide, but never tells a lie. And this brat with the unpleasant eyes is my son, Duo."
# The priest brings special attention to Kathy, "By the way, I do hope that you brought three files with you. The three preludes are needed to awaken the Aurora Princess."


WHAT.
WHAT IS THIS.
I CAN'T.

*JUST FLAILS AROUND MORE*

EVERYONE FLAIL WITH ME.


EDIT...

Also, this:

The next file is Autumn AC195 in which transfer student "Duo Maxwell" reads an essay on the theme of the relations between the Earth and its colonies.

This has to be the part we saw in the series, after the Gundam pilots went to space, and Heero was on that colony school under the name Duo Maxwell and he read his essay in class. I'm such a geek for knowing that this happened in the timeline right before Heero goes to 'rescue' Duo from his execution.


EDIT is a perv...

Today, I love [personal profile] chronolith. Because she write me pr0n. Or, at the very least, Dorothy/Relena pre-smut. Everyone should take Duo's advice on birthday presents. X3;;

Guys. OMG.

Pepsi is currently doing this thing called "Pepsi Throwback." They're, I guess, "special" editions of Pepsi in the old style of cans, the white ones with the Pepsi logo, instead of the shiny blue they use now. But the best thing is that just for these cans, they're using real sugar for the Pepsi, instead of... well, I guess they use high fructose corn syrup for sweetening now, since everyone does because it's cheaper than real sugar.

The Pepsi made with real sugar tastes so much better. There's a case of Pepsi in the fridge, and I'm afraid that I must drink it all. :3 And I don't normally prefer Pepsi as my soda of choice, since I'm a Coca-Cola girl.

But the sugar!

In a continuation of my birthday joy, I went out yesterday (before my coughing and voice issues got really bad) and redeemed my free birthday coupons for stuff. It was a pretty good haul, and I'm so glad that I'm a member of those rewards clubs at my favorite stores. I walked away with:

-- two free pieces of Godiva chocolate (both truffles)
-- 3 tablets of Godiva milk chocolate (on sale and with a 10% birthday discount)
-- an eye-centered trio from Sephora (eyeliner, eyeshadow, and mascara)
-- Cookie Doughn't You Want Some ice cream from Coldstone
-- a cute purse and trio of Victoria's Secret body products (Love Spell lotion, body wash, and body mist); not free, but I used a $10 giftcard to buy it, so it cut the price in half, which is awesome because just the lotion is $10

The only thing I couldn't find was a GameStop with a used version of Shin Megumi Tensei: Devil Survivor, so that I could just get the instruction booklet. I like collecting things like that, and I sort of want the instructions and tips, because I sort of have no idea what I'm doing in the game, even if it's hella fun.

Unfortunately, halfway through my shopping joy, I started coughing harder. =___=;; It's pretty bad now. I hate unproductive (a.k.a. non-phlem producing) coughs. Dry coughs just hurts my throat and chest and I know that mucus is lingering somewhere.

My voice is pretty much bullfrog-like. I'm going between losing my voice completely and being able to talk, but I sound horrible.

Damn you allergy season. Damn you.
