Here's a box for you. *gives you a box*
YES! The only two times I had it before I had bad experiences (#1 was a matcha latte that I thought was made with coconut milk, but it was actually regular milk with coconut flavoring, and so I had some bad lactose effects. #2 was what my boss now refers to as "the satanic matcha" because our whole staff had it and got violently ill. Not sure what happened with that one.)
BUT. I tried it again with a different brand and oh man it is great!
...what.. How is that possible, it's powdered tea leaves. How can they mess that up xD
But yes, I absolutely love it. Tried it for the first time when I went to Japan, I think. Both in foods and as a pure tea. The matcha is rather expensive here, though, so it's an indulgence I have sometimes^^
Also, regarding popcorn. I haven't had that in many years, but I'm going to try making this!
I love your avatar. Paper Mario is soooo good.
omg i know. it's the best thing ever. realm has my undying gratitude.
Same old, one day at a time, yada yada.
How are you doing these days?
Kind of weird. I can't really complain I guess. I miss being a chemist. Don't really know what to do any more if that makes sense! Enjoying the Canadian weather though
Nah, it does make sense. Life is...so weird. :S
But that's nice! Living somewhere pleasant is a huge boon.
Yeah, it makes a difference all right! And I just got word that a plot in the city's community garden became available
Muffin is cute! And muffins come in boxes! And cute toads can sit on the boxes! You+Foo=SupaCute
I mean, you’re SupaCute just yourself too! But You+Foo sounds even cuter
Aw thanks! I am looking like a muffin these days though ahaha. So is Foo. We are just 2 muffins united in marriage. How are you?
It’s cold weather padding, dear! I’m good! How are youuuuu?
I'm pretty good! Today is my day off, I am just reading about perfume and listening to synthwave. Cold weather padding is necessary, though the coldest it has been this year is -38 C which is not bad!
Omg I love synthwave. -38? Nooooo thank you! Lady, I live in a place where we’re too cold at -10, never mind that other nonsense! But hey, I suppose we all climatize to our areas, it’s all relative!
Yeah I find that crisp air really invigorating. It's the damp weather I find difficult!
You want the Guess that ZU'er winning sig? Just want to make sure before I make it :>
Depends on the size! If it's small like the clan banners yes, but I can't remove focus my space toad
I'll see what I can do bby
I'm sitting at my desk just pumping out work, usually in this mode I jam to some Daft Punk (oh the irony of "Technology" as I click around) but I can't stop listening to "Look at Me". Thanks homie.
I'm really glad you like it!! How are things?
Hey! I hope all is well on your end
Thanks LS, you too! Things are pretty normal (the current normal) and I'm just watching Star Trek and prepping for D&D hehe. How are you?
Not a bad combo. How’s cooking stuffs going? I’m alright, been off the weather today but overall things could be worse. Got a cat a few weeks ago so that’s been great =^_^=
The cooking is not too bad. I'll admit I've been doing a lot of nostalgic daydreaming about being a chemist. It's really too bad I had to leave academia.... :/
I love the pics you have been posting of your cat
Love your signature, haha
Aww thanks! Realm did an amazing job.
your signature makes me happy
how is the rose perfume you ordered?
Omg!!!! It's incredible.
Today it snowed. Lately when it's cold I've been wearing either Civet (Zoologist) or Nectarine Blossom and Honey (Jo Malone) but since I got it all I want to wear is Rose Trocadero.... This is what I was afraid of, I was trying to put off buying it....
I understand that feeling exactly. The struggles of owning a phenomenal perfume...
Replying to this ancient thread to say -- they came out with a body care line of Rose Trocadero and I bought it all... It's stuck in the post office right now though and FOo said he'd pick it up but he still hasn't (not his fault, but life's fault)
Ahh let me know how it is! I got flowerbomb for Christmas and I’m obsessed with it
Oh I wanted to try that one! I've heard good things. There is no perfume store within hundreds of km of this town .... I am wanting to order lots of samples....
Reboot was so good! Beast Wars was my favorite though haha
OMG Winnie I'm so sorry I didn't reply to this. Apparently I am bad at checking my wall >.>
ReBoot was amazing and was a defining factor in my childhood. I have so many memories surrounding the show and the times playing with my action figures etc.
But what KIND of pop tarts? Also are you home yet?
Umm.. chocolate ones!!
Yeah I am home!! Spent a week in Edmonton and now I'm in Fernie with Foo and his family.
Welcome back to our lovely continent
Hey beautiful, hope the move went smoothly and you're back to hanging with beavers, playing hockey, and drinking maple syrup for breakfast, lunch, AND dinner. Er. Supper.
Thanks!!! I just bought a candy thermometer so I can make maple taffy hahaha
*gasp* I found the toad
Did you learn about it?
"People should be quiet or silent on public transit, even if in a group. One should not take extended phone calls while on public transit."
>:O I AM SO OFFENDED GO TO HELL
I really don't like being a captive audience. In most public spaces I can just relocate if I don't want to be around a particular noisy person or group. On transit I can't. I don't mind quiet conversation but LOUD conversation... ugh
:<<< i am such a loud person lol you'd hate me
what if it is another language and you don't know what is being said?
I don't think I'd hate you in general haha maybe just on transit xD (I'm usually trying to read on the bus haha). It's WAY easier for me if it's another language, as it doesn't interrupt my thoughts the same way English does. That's something I love about Ireland, way more diff languages being spoken in public and I feel like that gives my thoughts some privacy in a way?
Ahhhh lol well I get it! Cos i am hella loud in Spanish on transit, but never really in english cos i have no friends in english lol
Your sig on Lamia say "please send toads". Well I found a baby toad in my house a couple days ago and took two pictures.
Here you go! imgur.com/SAYIhCe
TruEdge. You have no idea how happy this makes me. Thank you! I have not seen a toad since I moved to Ireland!!
It looks like it could be a leopard frog of some sort? What do you think?
I'm not really sure. I'm no frog/toad expert lol. I just found it in my house and took some pictures of it because I thought it was cute. Good thing I found it when I did because some of my cats were gathered around it and might have killed it.
I just go to identification sites online haha I do that with plants too. Yay for saving the frog
Thanks for nominating me for biggest participator boxes! Btw we got the count really high while you were asleep lol.
No problem! I think you are haha!
Also. -_- Sometimes I consider setting my alarm just to reset the count.
the flamingoes look silly but actually i find the way that all their legs move together to be deeply unsettling D:
Oh no! I love the flamingo moves.. they look hilarious to me! Why do you find them unsettling?
The way the legs move, it's just... like it's all one creature joined at the hip. They look like bristles or cilia moving a giant amoeba-like organism. It's just uncanny to me >:
Omg Boxes I feel for you so much. Planes just... ugh. And food poisoning UGH!!! And it’s always at a terrible time! I wish we were in the same city, I’d literally show up with a box of fancy expensive hipster donuts and milk for us to share. And commiserate. Because that’s what you deserve after these shenanigans!
Hahaah! To be fair the events I've listed happened over a several year span ... but there's always something, each time I fly. The food poisoning was definitely one of the worst -- the shuttle I took from the airport afterward didn't have a bathroom but it did have a garbage bucket and I wasn't sure if I'd have to use it (luckily I made it to my hotel before it got really bad).
Actually I just looked up the place on Yelp, LOL: yelp.ca/biz/leftys-mile-high-b…enver?osq=mile+high+grill
Omg it sounds like the airport version of a backroads roadhouse
Worst airport in 3 ... 2 ... 1 .......... LAX
Really?! I’ve had my worst experiences in JFK. But that’s also when I’m the most tired.. esp coming back!
I haven't been to JFK so it could be worse. When I was at LAX there weren't enough seats in the terminal for all of the passengers! Just to name one of the many problems....
Just wanted to say that I love your avatar. Also I'm gonna be nominating you for most notorious count resetter since you've crushed my dreams of winning the most lol.
Thanks!! Re: the avatar I mean. I changed it as a joke but it was too cute to get rid of.
I'm sorry I crushed your dreams. Well, I'm not actually sorry. I derive some pleasure from it.
I'm disappointed you aren't named bar.
Well, some boxes have wine in them, so ...
Miss you. Love you.
Miss you too
for reasons both perplexing and stupid, this meme reminded me of you
LOL. Related -- actual conversation from today
boxes: "I need to consult my trusty spreadsheet."
Foo: "It's always good to have a trusty spreadsheet ... " [pause] ... [sings quietly] "somewhere out there ... beneath the pale moonlight ..."
"Background: it is snowing in Ireland which means the entire country is shut down, all the stores are closed except a couple restaurants,"
You're not kidding? xD
Unfortunately not! I got 2 days off work though lol. The whole thing seems kinda silly....
Wow, I didn't think snow was that rare there. How much snow are we talking? 10 cm or?
In Limerick we didn't get that much... A few cm yeah...
I'm amused :p
So.. saw your post about Celeste and what do you think? I want to play so bad but I’m worried it’ll be so hard I’ll hate it. Is there an easy mode? Is the only answer to get gud?!
There is an easy mode but I haven't used it so I don't know what it's like. However I will say I'm not that good at video games and I had a lot of fun with this one. The difficulty progresses with the game and new mechanics are introduced one at a time so it's not overwhelming. There are no penalties for dying (the game has a death count but afaik it doesn't mean anything for gameplay) and I have died thousands of times hahaha. But I didn't find it frustrating to die because the game was really fun for me. I'd say if you want to play to definitely go for it, it's not that expensive and the game does a good job teaching you how to play.
Thank you!! Now I’m definitely going to get it!
Let me know how it goes
Every time I see your avatar I get hearts in my eyes
Haha thanks! Watermelon wolf is so cute eh??
Are you familiar with the band White Lies? I just imagine you liking the sound youtube.com/watch?v=z-9NAO4Ope8
I never replied lol >>
I love this
