2016 Very Serious New Year’s Resolutions

Last year I shared with you my 20 new year’s resolutions. I don’t think I did very well by keeping them, like usual.

But here are 21 more of them for this year anyway: Continue reading “2016 Very Serious New Year’s Resolutions”

Keeping Portland Weird

You may or may not have heard Portland, Oregon’s motto, slogan, tagline, whatever you wanna call it: “Keep Portland Weird.” Portland is known for its weirdness, which has been exposed by the Portlandia show, but Portlanders love it and embrace it.

I was known to be pretty weird when I was younger, very often described as “random.” Random was and probably is one of my characteristics. I seem to say and do things that people consider random. I can attest to the fact that Portland is random and weird, and I love it. Continue reading “Keeping Portland Weird”

My Husband’s Wisdom OR Shit My Husband Says

I have been told by strangers: “I bet your husband makes you laugh”; he was known as Sir Joshua at the Walgreens near our previous residence where he was actually once “knighted” at the cash register, and he once brought a life-size cardboard Sheldon (from the Big Bang Theory) to work.

On my list this weekend is to buy some tea. I have officially ran out of my tea stash and need some urgently. Our roommates still have plenty of lipton tea bags and plenty of green tea bags but I personally don’t like lipton and green tea makes me dizzy. I’m looking to buy some lemon ginger, black (haven’t decided which kind), and chamomile.

On other news, I am really frustrated and almost angry at my mailman because it looks like he is returning my mail and I am expecting some really important mail related to my immigration status and which if I don’t receive, it might cost me $590 to $1000 USD plus a lot of waiting time. The DMV already confirmed that he returned my driving license, so I’m worried. I don’t know why he thinks I’m a terrorist or something, why is he returning my mail?

Anyway, I hope you have a great weekend! And enjoy this week’s links:

Friday is a beloved day of the week and it is the perfect day to learn something new and try it out on the weekend, have a good laugh, or find some food for thought all with internet resources.

Mr. Google is a very good friend of mine, I use Google for everything. My life without Google would be very different. This may be a sad thing for many who have an opposition to technology, but I take it and embrace it.

I decided that I want to spread the love and share with you my awesome finds every week.

I am all for original content, but I think it is good and fun to share other’s great content every now and then and spread the love that way. 

I hope you will enjoy this series.

Lay’s Do Us A Flavor competition is on again. Last night, I actually created 6 different flavors. I felt embarrassed at myself for spending time doing so. My flavors included: Roasted Garlic Hummus, Baked Cayenne Sweet Potato, Prosciutto and Olive Oil, New England Clam Chowder, and Bacon Guacamole. Don’t tell me those aren’t the best chip flavor ideas you’ve ever heard of.
