My poor doggy [Apr. 1st, 2010|06:51 pm]
Greta was attacked by another dog today. My mom says that she will need 2 stitches, and that she'll be taking her to the vet tomorrow (Greta was way too worked up today for the vet to consider having her go under.) So right before Anime Boston I've got something huge to worry about...

Video Game Sales Post [Mar. 9th, 2010|09:12 pm]
I posted this originally in the middle of February, but then my computer decided to crap out on me so here's a repost (with some updates) of various video games I have for sale on videogames4sale.

Hampton Beach Fire [Feb. 28th, 2010|05:20 pm]
This morning my mom called and suggested that we go to Brown's in Seabrook for lunch, and I say, "Why not?" I also ask her if we can drive down to Hampton Beach to see the remains of the huge fire that was there early Friday morning.
So, one lobster roll, a small order of onion rings and a Coke (for me) later, we drove up from Seabrook Beach to Hampton Beach and I got a few shots:

Yeah. That block's pretty much gone.Collapse )

ARRGHH [Feb. 20th, 2010|09:29 am]
My computer is giving me trouble again and this time it doesn't seem like it's a software problem...It will not boot. I can turn it on, the power supply and fan comes on, the CD drive blinks, but there's no sound from the hard drive. I just hope it's not the drive that's failed. Since the weird thing is that I had it on Friday morning and it was fine.

I got WiiFit Plus today (it was bought from Amazon with a gift certificate from my aunt and uncle in SC.) I'm getting back onto it and I'm sticking to it this time! GRRR!
...other than that, I've been dealing with a VERY mean customer at work. GRRR. But a bad "grr."

I had 5 days off left so I spread them out throughout December. It's the whole "use it or lose it" thing and I managed to snag a Thursday and Friday and also my birthday off, so I'm good.

So today I drove down to Burlington and went to H Mart, which is a Korean grocery chain that just opened their first store in MA. And it is awesome. It's like Kotobukiya X 100 (but I'm still gonna miss that place) and they even have a little food court, a bakery called Tous les Jours and a shop selling Hello Kitty and other character goods (sadly a portion of them are bootlegged.)

The only thing I wasn't able to find there was kirimochi, which is mochi sold in a brick form that you broil so it puffs up. And their Pocky section, sadly, was lacking compared to the Asian groceries in Chelmsford and Nashua.

What they DID have were really yummy Japanese confections...I bought castella, which tastes like pound cake (and also tasted pretty papery until I realized I had forgotten to peel something off...) and mitarashi dango, which are grilled odango with a sweet teriyaki sauce (One of the first things I ate when I arrived in Japan that was distinctly Japanese.)

I also bought some pre-cut nori strips and some shisoume filling in a tube so I can make some umeboshi paste onigiri (finally!) Also got me a nice big tub of miso. I wonder how long that keeps?

I need a new vacuum [Nov. 16th, 2009|09:34 pm]
My Bissell which I bought almost 3 years ago has started to suck in the bad way even after I cleaned all the crap out of it. So I've decided that I need to start vacuum shopping.

My apartment consists of 2 carpeted rooms (living room and bedroom) and two rooms with linoleum floors (kitchen and bathroom) so I don't need anything really heavy duty. However I don't want a handheld or anything with vacuum bags. Also, I don't have pets so I don't believe I'll be needing one of the pet-specific models, unless the company just slaps a "picks up pet hair" on the box for a model with another color scheme.

I want to stay under $100 as much as possible; I'm willing to go up to $125 or so.

Anyone have any recommendations?

I only had one person guess on the 10 Favorites meme...

1. Boston Red Sox: Jacoby Ellsbury
2. Boston Celtics: Always and will forever be Larry Bird. Even when I was a little girl, I thought he was awesome.
3. Maria-sama ga Miteru: Shimako Toudou
4. Iron Chef America: Chef Masaharu Morimoto (yes I do like Alton Brown too, but Morimoto is one of the best food artisans ever, and it's all about the chefs.)
5. Sailor Moon: Sailor Mercury (this one was guessed by tenchichan)
6. Tiny Toon Adventures: Plucky Duck
7. DuckTales: Scrooge McDuck for the win
8. Star Trek: The Next Generation: Riker (it's the beard)
9. Harry Potter series: Harry Potter
10. New Kids On The Block: When I was a little girl I loved both Jonathan and Jordan Knight
