The only fool here is me

I have mentioned that I hate the wind, yes? Because I do. Like, mortal enemy hatred. Why do I live on the black land prairie again? 45 mph gusts, steady wind of 25 mph. 8 miles today, and I'm worn the hell out from being beaten around by that dastardly wind. And I don't know how it manages it, but I left the house in one direction, came back in another, and was STILL facing the wind. What?? Ocean breezes? Mountain zephyr? I'm good with those. Swirling, abusive, leaf-filled, bird-knocking, shirt blowing up type winds are on my black list.

I'm sure I looked the fool stomping about with a snot-covered face, grimacing at the four miles left to go. :|

In happy news, though, I am going for proper Dim Sum this afternoon with an old friend that I let go by the wayside. (Old timers here: my $60 candle/Type-A friend.) Then there will be shopping for supplies at the Asian Market (I need proper jasmine rice, white soy, miso powder, etc. etc.) Spring weather makes me want light Malaysian/Thai/Japanese foods all the live long day. Mmmm, like that sweet vinegar cucumber salad stuff with little bits of crab and shrimp? MMMMMM I love sunomono! Or hijiki with carrots. OM NOM NOM I love you food, get in mah belleh!

I'm going to make that chai spice cake for Zombie Jesus Day this weekend, I think. I may not celebrate the worship of the second zombie risen (hahahaha, I'm so blasphemous) but I sure like all the trappings like chocolates, devilled eggs, and spring treats in buffet form. Okay, I need to shower and untangle my hair. Yeesh.

Yay for Zombie Jesus Day! I love saying that to people. Most of them laugh, but there's always a few who look puzzled. And then you get to be all, "but he died, and rose from the dead a few days later? TOTALLY zombie!"

You may have wind today, but we have a rain/snow mix. Ahhh, yes, what fun.

I even wrote a song for Zombie Jesus Day! It pleases me so.

BAH to the rain and snow mix! Although with how hard it's blowing here, I don't know which is worse. :(

Time to start running in goggles and a bird flu mask, or better yet: a full rebreather gas mask. Stylish, healthy and will make you used to the mask for the upcoming zombie apocalypse (the virus will be airborne, you'll see).

I want one of those recirculating suits from Dune, personally. I could be out for weeks, drinking my own pee, protected from the sand worms, too!

Your excursion sounds crazy delicious! Ahaha, I totally remember that friend. Do not fear if she shows up with engraved sterling silver gardening shears for you; she ordered them for everyone this season!

AHAHAHAHAHAHAH, oh my god, you know something like that is going to happen, too. I'm going to make sure I get the bill this time, oy. SO FUNNY.

I will think of you as I nom some delicious vegetarian cuisine, my sweets!

Mmmm, all those foods sound GOOD. You'd love my road; 2 x indian & halal, 1 x greek, 1 x maroc, 1 x oriental, 1 x norwegian, 1 x italian and 1 x polish food stores, plus indian (3), spanish (1), chinese (2), thai (1), italian (2), lebanese (1 and so good, altho sort of alarming at the same time), caribbean (1), specifically jamaican and one greek (forthcoming!) restaurants/takeaways/slightly terrifying one-rooms. If you ever make it over we will go and gorge. I had thai last night with my parents, who were visiting - pork & long beans, AMAZING.

I LOVE FOOD and I would love your block, oh my god I would gain three stone.

We will TOTALLY gorge on deliciousness. I LOVE long beans! I'm growing my own this season - I like to stir fry them in a ginger/fish sauce/soy mix and add dried shrimp. NOM NOM NOM!

Wow, I thought the wind was blowing here! it's kicking up so much crud, and I was already all sinus infection-y. Blech!

We oriental marketed this weekend. Sooo many levels of fun. The guy behind me was buying durian popsicles. I have never delved into the frozen sweets section, but will next time.

Fave find this time around was hors douvre sized vietnamese spring roll wrappers! They're the size of a corn tortilla. I can't wait to make a batch of appetizers for our next party.

Yay Zombie Jesus Day! I'm making challah and lemon curd just because that's what I'm craving right this minute!

Oy, my face was a MESS. I went through all of my tissues on my walk, too. BLEH.

DURIAN POPCICLES!! I've had that, they're better as ice cream, though. Red bean ice cream is pretty nommable, too.

MmmmMMmmmm, I want those wrappers! I'll keep my eyes peeled, what a great idea!

LEMON CURD. I think I could marry you right now, I'm just saying. It is my FAVORITE of the curds. ;)

Wind: We had wind the other day that blew the chairs over on my porch and pushed them up against the railing like they were trying to escape.

Zombie Jesus Treats: I was just wondering about this the other day, how my MIL does this huge spread for Easter when, in the fourteen years that I've known them they've been to church maybe four or five times, and at least three of those were when I got married, when my father died and the Sunday after my father died. Soooo. Is it the need for lamb, or in our case, ham, cheese sauce and asparagus? Easter doesn't seem to be as commercialized a holiday as Christmas and...well...is it the chocolate bunnies?

And, well, it would be nice to have a really bitchin' hat.

Eh, it's just that routine - you make big meals on these days, yea verily. At least that's how it is with us, because we aren't religious at all. Not even spiritual or kinda dabbling in Santeria. :D

I mean, chocolate bunnies, Peeps, devilled eggs... There is no bad there!

Ahahaha, my head isn't quite big enough to believe the wind just wants to be with ME ME ME, yet. Give me a few more acting gigs... ;)

DIM SUM. Mmmm, I had steamed pork and leek buns, Shanghai style buns, some taro root patties that were freaking DELISH, and so much water I'm about to float away. Why do they top off my glass after every sip, augh?

Then I hit the market and loaded up on staples like Hoisin sauce, Furikake flakes, jasmine rice, fish sauce, etc. etc. Time for stir fry tonight!

HEH. I cannot claim that name, it came from violethamster a few years back when I wrote a parody Easter song to the tune of "Thriler." :D

I'm surprised you didn't saaaaaaaaaaaay, "YOW! I-yip-i-yip-i-YAAAAAAAAY! when that wind came hollerin' at ya. GOD I HATE THE WIND. We only have a few more weeks of it, then it'll be all proper and hot and still like the good Zombie Lord intended.

WTF, who turns down ALREADY PURCHASED crab legs? What the what?! REDONK. If ever there was a daughter in law that deserved a set of in laws that appreciated good food, it would be you.

My head ached from all the tangle-pulling.

Oooh, fancy pants!

My dad's Thai so I'm acquainted with native cuisine in Thailand. Fruit everywhere! And fresh durian (it stinks, along with its cousin in odor the jackfruit)! Rice cooked in bamboo shoots! I'm always confused when I go into Thai restaurants here in America because I've never seen half the food items on the menu most times. I even saw Curtis Stone on Take Home Chef do 'Thai food' and he made a custard. A custard! They don't make desserts that require refrigeration in Thailand unless they aren't Thai!

Okay, I'll shut up now. Sorry.

Mmmmmm, durian! I might be one of the only white girls you know that LOVES durian. I love the little moon cakes with durian filling, too.

There's a HUGE south-Asian community near where I live, so I have the luxury of PROPER Thai food. I can't stand "Americanized" Asian food now that I know the truth. :)

when i was nine, i spent most of that year in the hospital. i was in at Standford ovver Easter. my dad felt very bad for me, as my step-dad refused to buy chocolate for me, because i wasn't there to find it (you now, egg hunt sort of thing? we only got the candy we could find, so we "worked" for and "earned" our treats). and my dad is a VERY VERY atheist. and so was the head nurse. and they both read a lot of sci-fi and horror. the collaborated on making me an Easter celebration.
so, for like 7 years (until i was 16 and decided it wasn't cool anymore) every year we did "Rise of the Zombie God" instead of Easter - my dad would melt chocolate and remake it as "zombie candy", using some sort of white cream to make it (supposedly anyway) look like rotting flesh and all. pissed my mother off to no end :p i thought it was just us, my very weird family. good to know we aren't alone

on a totally other note - i told my sister about your Chai cake, and she is very interested and i am interested in her interest because i can't bake but i REALLY wanted to try it, so is it ok if i share the recipe with her?

Why would I mind if you shared someone else's recipe? I just linked to it, it's not *my* recipe. Go to town!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
