Two guys just walked across the chapel floor on their hands while a flamboyantly loud white boy video recorded it. My ch

Ben made this out of apples and donuts. Pure awesome. ^.^

Pile of mashed potatoes and pile of macaroni. They retained the shapes of their containers disturbingly well. =P

So I obviously meant "roast" instead of "smart" in the title. Here's a picture of the cucumbers, which Kevin and I cut. They were squishy, but general consensus was that they were okay and only looked like that because they'd been frozen. >.< Hopefully they'll be okay, or I guess we can drown them in salad dressing. =P

ICF senior smart

My church is doing senior roast tonight, which seems to consist mostly
of food and making fun of the graduating seniors. As of now, the
non-seniors are frantically preparing dinner and decorations.
Supposedly the dress code is semi-formal, so I wore a dress (I never
wear dresses), and I'm the only person dressed up. >.< I'm starting to
wonder if the whole semi-formal thing is just a prank on me. Stay
tuned for pictures of food and general silliness!

You're never too old to play with Legos. That's a dog, a guy sitting in a chair, a cactus, and... um... some sort of table with items on it? (That was supposed to be the Leaning Tower of Pisa, but Jim turned it sideways and symmetrized it. Pretty sure "symmetrize" is not a word. >.< It's weird that the majority of this blog post is within parentheses.)

sign fail

The part that really bothers me is that I've walked past this sign every day for almost a week, and I only noticed today that it is hilariously misspelled. >.<

I have a mullet:

The thing about mullets is that you can't hide them with a hat. It only makes the mullet more mullet-y. So I need a haircut. Does anyone know of good hair cutting places nearby that aren't overly expensive? I'd really prefer an Asian place, since I haven't had good experiences with white hair salons. (Turns out Asian hair *is* different.)

Alternatively, if anyone cuts hair and wants to try chopping off my mullet tail, I'd be up for that as well. And I won't even complain if it turns out badly, since I've had a number of ridiculous and/or bad haircuts before. Besides, I could always just buzz it all off. I've wanted to do that for a while too, but I get the feeling that wouldn't look very good to employers. >.< Gender norms can be so ridiculous.

Good thing is, my hair without the tail already resembles Posh Spice's haircut, so it should be easy to fix:

Testing to see if mobile posting is working.

this should just be the dumpling blog

After living for 22 years without ever having attended a dumpling party, I somehow managed to attend two in a span of three weeks. At least my dumpling-making skills are improving. I estimate that I make dumplings at 50% the average speed (up from 25%), and my dumplings only rupture upon cooking 50% of the time (down from 80%). =P Given the choice, however, my plan is still to stick with pre-made frozen dumplings.

Of course, this post is useless without pictures, so here they are.


Boiled (I don't know any cooking terms, so please correct me if that's inaccurate):

For some reason, these dumplings stuck together and resemble a brain:

The sauce that Judy made (contains soy sauce and green onions, again correct me if I'm wrong):

Everyone was pretty full after the dumplings, but then Judy brought out a tray of cupcakes. There were 5 different types, but I only remembered to take a picture after most of them were gone. The two in the picture are something with walnuts that Judy made (top), and neapolitan (bottom). The other three were lemon, banana (made with root beer instead of water!), and something with a thick layer of caramel on the bottom. Kevin was my tasting buddy, and we split one of each flavor, despite being very very full. At one point, we almost stopped, but that's what the buddy system is for! (That, and shooting polar bears while you're pooping. >.<)


We then played a round of Taboo, during which I correctly guessed "hangover", and my pastor remarked that I sure seemed to know about that. I referenced my "sin list", and getting drunk isn't on there, so I guess it's okay, but it's still embarrassing. >.<

Yesterday, Joan (who threw the first dumpling party) suggested having another one this weekend. Maybe this blog should just be the dumpling blog. =P

school has eaten my life

It's been a while since my last blog post. I've been very busy with school lately - the end of the semester is always rough. For example, this week I gave a presentation earlier today, I have a design packet due in about half an hour, and I've been working extensively on the rough draft of a paper and yet another presentation that's due on Monday. Adding to all that, I'm still searching for a summer internship. Most of the extra time is taken out of eating and sleeping. I'm down to roughly 1 meal a day and maybe 5 hours of sleep. On the bright side, apparently calorie restriction can lead to a longer life span.

Anyway, slightly more interesting than my whining is this comic that I doodled last week:
If I ever get the time, I actually have a plot for this story, and it would be interesting to complete. Hopefully tonight I'll get the chance to upload some pictures of a dumpling wrapping party that I attended this past weekend. I gotta say, I'm definitely improving at making dumplings. ^.^
