foodie post

there is nothing i enjoy more than delicious grub. i mean, no matter how bad your day was, how can you be upset after eating something that'll fire up your taste buds and melt your problems away. food honestly makes everything better, not that i'm an emotional eater, far from it. i actually can't bring myself to eat a pack of 4 extra chocolately and crispy pocky for fear of gaining weight (yeah, i'm neurotic that way. whos' heard of a foodie who's afraid to eat too much?).

back to my main point, which is; food is awesome. i find myself (mostly at work) surfing, checking out the most interesting restaurants i can find and then desperately trying to find someone who will a)be willing to spend money on overpriced food b)come with me and c)willing to travel the distance to eat with me. of course, i enjoy the company as well.

a is a big problem because i love fine dinning. the food, the decor and the service just makes you feel like you're royalty. which is what they're supposed to make you feel like, if they know anything about fine dinning. i honestly don't mind shelling out over $30 for a main dish let alone all the trimmings, complete with appetizers (foie gras anyone?) and plus dessert sometimes (99.99% of the time, i'm too full by dessert anyway). but most of my friends do mind, which sucks so i usually have to wait for some special occasion (like our anniversary, which is coming up!) to go with my boyfriend. but because this only happens once a year, it can be problematic since the foodaholic in me, can't WAIT once a year for this!

but i do have a friend who such a foodie like me and she won't mind shelling out over $50 for a good meal. but she's kind of broke so it doesn't happen very often. i sometimes wonder if i should bring my sister (who is broke) and then pay for her but then it wouldn't seem very fair to my brother, so i'd have to bring him along too so it'd be quite a bill.

but my foodie fix will be satisfied tomorrow, when i head over to La Cantine with my boyfriend tomorrow to celebrate his birthday. it's not a fancy restaurant but they serve wacky and delicious food there. i can't wait!

pokemon love

my love and obsession for pokemon has been renewed and it's all this post. so immense is my love for this old school game, i went on ebay and actually checked out what plushies they had for sale (by pokemon center, obvs) AND I FELL IN LOVE WITH THREE OF THEM! i must have them! i previously bought a wooper one because it was kind of cute and then my dog bite off one of its arms....but it has character now.

i used to have a pikachu one (because which kid didn't), a snorlax, charizard, and...CLEFAIRY!!!! except i have clue where the hell why went. probably donated like all my other awesome stuff which i didn't mean to donate. i hate it when that happens. actually, it only happened once. i was so tired of having so much shit, that i just decided to screw looking through all the garbage bags of goodies (i litereally had like 10) and just gave it all away. and as a way to torment me, i'm suddently remembering all this shit that i DIDN'T want to donate. life is so cruel.

thank god, i still my squirtle, even though i don't like squirtle at all. an ugly pokemon is still a pokemon and since i love pokemon, i must tolerate squirtle.

i actually placed a bid on of the ebay plushies BUT i won't say which one, in case someone actually reads this and is a pokemon fan and happens to like the same plushie and OUTBIDS ME!

.....i think i'm going to go ferret my old pokemon games out and play them now.

<3 fire pokemon JUST LOVE THEM!

[EDIT] May 14th, 2010

I WON THE BID!!!!! WOOOOO! It's this one! except i didn't pay 30 bucks for it. i paid 10. =D

now available for rent

so i've been thinking what kind of blog this could be, because i already keep a journal so there's no point writing the same twice. plus, i don't have the time. i actually would rather update my journal more often than this. journals are fun to reread a few months later, only to realize what an idiot you were.

but blogs are fun too since it's much quicker to update them. imagine if i could write as fast as i typed? my journal entries (not the accounting ones. haha, accounting joke!....T_T) would take about 15 mins instead of 2 hours, especially since i write such detailed accounts of my day and feelings. sometimes, i feel bad for whoever would be rude enough to read my journal, except not really if they were reading my journal without my permission.

anyway, gong gong's house is finally rentable. i guess we could've just rented it the way it was, but it was filthy and hadn't been cleaned in over 20 years. it looks much much nicer now, with a fresh coat of paint and new floors. although, i think we're stupid to be doing so much work on renting property, just a little. hopefully, we'll get good tenants.

someone called today and was asking about the property. they're only two people, some guy and his mom. so far so good...BUT they have a dog. a labrador. a big dog. not that i have anything against dogs, because i LOVE dogs, but pets are dirty and we don't have to have to work more than we have to when the tenant leaves. apparently, he's very well behaved (the dog, not the guy. although i hope he is too) etc etc etc. but we'll see. but i'm glad that people are calling, it's only been a day since i posted it up on kijiji so it's working!

i should also fix my layout. it's been looking like a work-in-progress for the past two weeks. i wish photobucket wasn't blogged on this computer, otherwise i'd spiff it up right now.
