Wait, WHAT!?  I never knew that Suzanne Sugarbaker married Major Dad.  This old news is rocking my world.

Like, everyone doesn't understand that Spongebob is even more overexposed than all of the Kardashians.  And before him it was almost Pikachu.

But those two are actually tight.

Michelangelo Antonioni, Zabriskie Point, 1970



Anna Karina and Jean-Luc Godard on the set of Pierrot le Fou, 1965


These homemade matcha cookies are heaven.  Matcha-flavored anything is a dream.  My four most favorite treats in the whole wide world...

Green tea ice cream, especially in mochi form
Baklava
Goma dango*
Marzipan

I do like chocolate, yes, but I am a pleb cause I like milk chocolate the most, and I'm not ashamed to say that given a choice, I would pick cadbury milk chocolate over the fancier kinds.  Do they even carry fancy milk chocolate, or is it always dark?  A nice solid square of creamy milk chocolate is best.  Don't need too much of it to make me satisfied.

*EDIT!  I had to come back because I cannot believe that I forgot to include goma dango!  Or jin deui, or sesame dumplings, or sesame balls filled with azuki paste, however you like to call them.  I've only had them from Ichiban in Portland, and I always forget about how glorious they are all warm and chewy.  I will try to have them in Tokyo, so that I can compare, but I can't imagine they would taste much different than the goma dango from Ichiban.  I don't think that it is too easy of a recipe to screw up.  I'm a sesame whore.

In honor of the US and Cuba resuming diplomatic relations (finally), I present you with a photo of one of my three-second Fidel drawings, my very special skill.  This particular sketch was done for the Peace Corps Morocco talent show and was a real hit.

Carlos brought home a tree.  It is wrapped up in my Morocco scarf, a fake rat tail made from yarn, and decorated with some felt blobs that I made.  
Yayayayay, I am going.  It's all booked, yayayyayayay.  Oh my gosh this is real.

Okay, so I have to decide if I should go visit Tokyo for a couple of days while I am in Asia.  I would go alone, so that sort of brings about my anxiety in regards to transportation, restaurants, etc, but being that I like being by myself, and that Japanese folks do many things by themselves, I think that this trip would certainly be doable.  Am going to sleep on it.

I've been bad at internet this week because there were some visitors.  Also today I'm bad at internet cause I'm in a piss poor mood and don't want to be on it.  Byeeeee.

Holy goodness, I think that this might be the first time I put a video shot by me onto the internet for all to see! It's not too exciting, but it is my family pup bouncing around the snow back while I was in Michigan.  I love him so much.

I am so proud of myself for falling asleep at 4:30 am last night and waking at just 6:00 pm today.  Let it be known that I would still be sleeping now if I weren't forced to wake and shower for some party.

First love 








Pie is made, duck is all brined, stuffed, and put into the oven, and sides are mostly ready.  I never even really liked Thanksgiving all that much, but this feels nice.  Maybe because this year there is duck instead of a turkey.

That read like a facebook status.  Whoa.

A year ago we had just gotten to London and were chilling when someone had the dude at the bar turn on the Lions game, and I realized that I had forgotten that it was Thanksgiving.  That was a fun trip.
