1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Yellow dress on: July 08, 2009 10:46:28 PM
I thought about that, <.< I just never have worn one of those things. I hate sticky things (bandaids, stickers, raisins...) so I've never considered wearing those sticky flower things or those sticky bra cups
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Yellow dress on: July 08, 2009 07:18:36 PM
My lovely boyfriend bought me this yellow sun dress that I absouloutly adore!
the problem is its so low cut I really can't wear it without something under it.
it looks like this

Except the open part goes all the way down till the waist.
I can't wear a bra underneith it without it showing through because its really thin cotton, same reason I won't go commando in it.
I've considered my bikini top, but would someone give me some advice? would a natrual bra with some fashion tape work? (My chest is large, so gravity and all...)
3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / I can or can't have meat yakisoba. on: June 30, 2009 06:18:20 PM
I love to cook.
And my family loves Asian food from all countries. So when my older brother approached with this recipe, I took it on full force.
Now this can be modified to fit your dietary needs! =D <.< though I am certainly sure it has lots of calories...
Yakisoba, the ultimate comfort food!
You're going to need a Wok for this, if you cook for more than two people.

This version serves four-six.


3 bags of yakisoba noodles (they come prepackaged, with a little spice packet, just throw the spice packets away, you won't need them)
2 bundles of green onions
4-6 cloves of garlic
1 small-medium ginger root
1 small green cabbage
2 long carrots
1 pound chicken
1/3 cup Sake
1/4 cup sake
a splash of sesame oil
a splash of soy sauce
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
Cornstarch, however thick you want the sauce to be, I use 1 tablespoon.
a splash of cooking sherry


Cut your chicken into cubes.
Put chicken into glass bowl.
Mince the Garlic.
place with chicken in glass bowl.
pour the 1/4 cup of sake over it. Now its a party.
splash it wish some soy sauce.
Then splash it with some sesame oil.
Mix it up so the chicken is well covered.
Cover and place in fridge.

Put your wok on medium high heat.

Cut your vegetables.
add a LITTLE bit of cooking oil of your choice to wok.
Turn the heat up to high.
add veggies, cabbage first, carrots, then green onions last. (go by the thickness of the veggie, cabbage takes longer to cook, then the carrots, then the green onions.)
Once those are all nice and cooked (the cabbage will be limp), place them into a clean bowl.

Bring chicken forth from the fridge.
don't bother adding oil to the wok this time
just pour the chicken into the wok, Cover it leaving a small gap for steam to escape.
Stir occasionally.

in yet another seperate clean bowl.
Add salt, cornstarch, and sugar.
Then soy sauce, sake, sherry
Whisk it until the corn starch is dissolved (there will be none on the bottom, the liquid will be a nice caramel color)
Pour it over the chicken that has been cooking for the past five-ten minutes (it should be almost done by this time)
Add in veggies and stir.

Open noodle packets, loosen noodles as directed by the back of the package. mine tell me to puncture their little self contained packets (noodles inside of a packet inside of another packet)
and microwave for 1 minute. I do 1 minute 30 seconds.

once those are done, add noodles to the cooking chicken, sauce (which should be thickened by now), and veggies.

Take it off the heat and mix so the noodles are mixed with veggies and coated in the sauce.


The meat can be substituted with firm tofu.
Add any veggies you like, as long as they compliment the dish.

When I first saw it, I was like Leopard print purse? ZOMG I WANT ONE.
<.< but then I saw the fabric, and was like THATS EVEN BETTER.
Because I would totally pay an outrageous price for a purse that pretty ^_^
The only bad thing I have to say about it, is the bottom looks a little pointy, but that just may be the angle.
6  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Anime/Manga Swap 4!! on: June 14, 2009 05:03:40 PM
I watched the First Gurren Lagaan movie this weekend.  I liked it, eventhough I was the only one in the room who hadn't seen the series yet Roll Eyes

When I went to sakura-con, my roommate at the hotel bought gurren lagaan dvds.
I watched some episodes with him, my bf, and my bf's friend(who were all staying in the hotel room with me) and I have to admit it is strange, but I want to see more episodes!! Netflix doesnt have it, so I've been looking for it on the web <.< all I can find is Megavideo, and since I'm too cheap to subscribe to megavideo I can only watch two episodes at a time.

Ghost in the shell has a few symbolic undertones, I think the one most noticeable are the paper cranes.
I believe that there is a legend that if you fold a thousand of them you will get your one wish.
Warning, possible spoiler below.

I very vagely remember an episode with young Motoko and a little boy. The boy didnt want a prosthetic body unless he could fold the paper cranes. Eventually the boy disappeared from the hospital and it wasn't clear whether or not he died or went on to have a prosthetic body.

9  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Isnt my new computer SWEET?! on: June 10, 2009 07:26:18 PM
 Shocked
If the rod goes all the way through you could find some way to get rid of it on one side
then use as nice potholders!

Cranberry sauce and provalone.
I got this idea from a cold sandwich we make at the shop I work at.
Its like a turkey provalone sandwich but with cranberry sauce, raisins and cashews!
Cheesy and one day during lunch the two came togeather in an odd combination on the grill!
Tasty on white, VERY tasty on wheat (our shop makes veagan friendly [no animal products what soever] bread)
