… so, apparently today is “figure out your goddamned finances” day.
Why did I agree to go downtown first thing in the morning for a doctor’s appointment?
… oh, yeah, because I had a serious asthma attack a couple of weeks ago and don’t have any inhalers or other meds any longer. So yes, Jaime, get off your ass and go to the doctor now.
Gulab jamun? Because those are amazing
Yes, that’s it! Our favorite Indian restaurant serves them, and they’re awesome. Mmmmmmm.
Hmmmm. Either the salsa we got at a tiny restaurant in Mexico, or the one time I ordered my curry “hot” instead of “medium” at our favorite Indian restaurant. Both I would definitely eat again, because they were delicious! But I generally get my curry “medium” so that I retain feeling inside my mouth for the mango ice cream or those little donut ball things that I never remember the name of, because dessert. :D
Of all time? Hmmmmm. That’s hard. Possibly spice cake with cream cheese frosting. Or any cake with cream cheese frosting. Because that makes everything wonderful.
At the moment, it’s this delicious vanilla bean ice cream we made yesterday. Excuse me, I’m gonna go get more. :D
3 Kids in Brooklyn. Mostly because of performances like the one linked, because that video defines why I love live music, and why Butch is pretty much the only artist I will still stand outside in line for four hours to stand in front of the stage.
Oh boy …
Music: Pop/Rock. There are so many subtypes that I can’t really define my favorite, but most of my favorites can be classified as rock with a pop sensibility, or vice versa.
Books: Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance. More to the UF side than PR, but there’s so much crossover there that you can’t really separate them at this point.
… I’m blanking on other categories, sorry. :) Other than TV/Movies, which is quite obviously Sci-Fi/Fantasy. Or, in the case of movies, “anything where shit blows up real good.” Heh.
I’m not much for cooking, TBH - I’m the world’s pickiest eater, and most of the foods I do eat come in frozen form, or in “boil-and-eat” form. Mostly garafthel is the cook around here. My favorite from-scratch thing I had a hand in making was probably the delicious spicy butternut squash soup we made for Thanksgiving one year.
As for comfort food, it will forever and always be pepperoni pizza rolls. I’m addicted, much to my waistline’s chagrin. :-P
Hmmm … the first one that comes to mind is the extended version of “Eenie Meenie Minie Moe,” always done when you had to randomly pick someone in a game.
Eenie Meenie Minie Moe
Catch a tiger by its toe
if he hollers let him go
eenie meenie minie moe
my mama told me
to pick the very best one
and you are not it
you dirty dirty dishrag
There were also a ton of chants and taunts we did while playing softball in elementary school/junior high, but I am totally blanking on those right now.
For this recent trip, it was probably seeing Ka, the Cirque du Soleil show. Which we almost missed, thanks to an overly long dinner, my terrible shoes, and the fact that the MGM Grand is approximately the size of a small European country. But the show was wonderful; it’s apparently one of the only current Cirque shows that features an actual plotline, and the performers were excellent at communicating the various bits of story without speaking. And they were also amazing dancers and acrobatic performers, of course - there was a whole sequence in which the stage platform rose up to vertical, and they enacted a giant fight scene on a mountainside. (You can see it in part here.) I came away wishing I could afford to see more Cirque shows.
It would really depend on how advanced space travel was, to be honest. I find the idea of suffocating/having no air to breathe terrifying - I’d therefore never be one of the first people to ride on a spaceship. I’d have to wait until the safety and comfort were well tested, until enough flights had been made with passengers that the safety stats were fairly believable.
Once space travel is safe and comfortable, hell yeah, I’ll head to another planet. :D
… no, I don’t know why. It just sounds like a good rabbit name. :D
Purple. Or hot pink. I love the way my hair looks when I dye it one of those colors. I’d kill to be able to have one of them permanently. Or at least for longer than a week before they start to fade. :)
I am desperately in need of an ask box meme right now for some reason - it’s just that kind of evening. But I can’t find one on my dash, so I’m just going to open it up - send me an ask and ask me anything you want. Serious, silly, completely insane, I don’t care. Ask box is here, let loose your most random inquiries!
