You severely underestimate my poverty parsimony if you think I can afford will buy not-Goodwill appliances. And none of the three Goodwills I routinely pick over has ever had a rice cooker. I'm consistently surprised by the fact! You wanna talk about toaster ovens and bread makers and juicers and blenders and crock pots and even the occasional roomba or marble pastry-board, fugettaboutit, but rice, not so much. Astonishing, given the Filipino, Hawaiian, and Korean populations in my area, but go figure.

Really, though, the crux of the issue is that I just don't mind much. Rice has always been "the other side dish" to me, and rice-based dishes were never my favorite. As much as I value it as a high-filling, low-fattening staple, my limited space and budget just don't see rice or its various cookers as valuable enough to bother with. If I cared, I could make something happen.

I just don't, mostly!

Australia has Vanilla Coke.

Hong Kong does not.

This totally did not play any part in my decision to run away from home.

I used to drink soda fairly frequently, if not very heavily, but then I stopped. Now I have a hard time enjoying it on those rare occasions I end up with a soft drink. I'll take a sip and go "What was the appeal?"

Honestly I'm in it for the bubbles. I'll drink anything with bubbles in it.

Not poison though.

"Chakuza" iced tea - in super-authentic "darku" flavour, so no milk.

Does the paper in the background say "Why not taste Japan?"

There is no drink. You just lick the can.

I made a Black Forest Gateau to take in for a coworker this week; it'll either be a celebration of his conversion to full employee or, more likely, a consolation for the end of his contract.

Having to make it on a transportable plate with a raised lip seriously limited my decorating options, so it's much plainer than I'd have liked, but it came out... adequate.

Tea made in a mug of heated milk (no water) is amazing, if only for its incredible abilities at making me sleep like a log shortly after imbibing it.

Does your tea have caffeine in it? Because anything I drink with tea in it makes me slightly jumpy.

I am a Dr. Pepperian.
And not even because of Steins;Gate.
As a child I found myself watching some astronaut action flick. The space doods were stuck in their shuttle, losing air rapidly due to a mysterious leak. They can't find it.

Then some guy busts out the packet of Dr. Pepper. Three squirts of zero-gee fizzy deliciousness slowly float towards the crack, eventually expelling outside in frozen glory.
Dr. Pepper saves spaceship crews, and from that day I swore myself to the stuff.


That, and it's damn fizzy. That kept my mind off booze as a kid. Like I kept my mind off cigs with toothpicks. Good dental hygiene with that too

So a couple weeks ago I decided to try the Ethiopian restaurant/bakery. The general area around Centreville doesn’t offer much in the way of anything fun to do, but it does have lots of places to eat.

Anyway, I’m glad I did. The place was pretty small, and it smelled pretty funny what with all those spices completely unfamiliar to me, and the food was also kind of funny tasting at first... but in retrospect it was probably the best new thing I’ve had all year.

To be honest, I’m not sure if I could convince my parents to try it, though. It’s finger food (I could smell it on my fingers for the rest of the day because my technique was not very refined). I’ll be back when I can afford it, though.

I think most people around here would imagine you have to go to Adams Morgan to find something out of the ordinary. That’s just not true.

Holy shit, rum and diet Sunkist go so well together that it doesn't even seem right. The rum covers up a bit of the sickly sweetness from the start of the taste and then the Sunkist aftertaste hits at just the right time to compliment the rum's.

Dim Sum is lovely to have. Although, it's always really crowded on Sundays.

Man if you can do it and get it to taste good then you can go for it!

But I've never had a pho without meats so I don't know how that'd taste!
