Five Random Friday Pictures

Friday, August 31st, 2007

I went out and snapped some pics for a Friday Five picto-post but I actually have more than five pictures in some cases. Call it padding. I’m also going to attempt to do some funky HTML so hold on! (My HTML Fu…is no good)

Mickey D’s

Wednesday, August 29th, 2007

TheMan and I went to Mickey D’s today for the last day of their “Get a free icy drink!” promotion thing. Last week I stopped by and got a caramel mocha and it was…better than Starbucks plain coffee but not by much. I think the whole deal is that they will be offering these drinks in competition with the local coffee houses but for much less. I’d still go to Starbucks though if I were getting a mocha. And if I were getting an icy mocha, I’d spend the 60 cents and get me a Hello Boss mocha. It’s ten times the drink the McDonald’s icy mocha is.

Catmint’s a Bloomin

Tuesday, August 28th, 2007


Good Tuesday all. Apparently it’s catnip season, which makes Isaak a very happy (and crazy) cat. I was doing my usual loafing on teh intertubes before dinner and the cat came by for a little cat love. Usually he’s all plaintively “Mrrrr?” like I haven’t scritched him for a week and last night started out pretty much the same. There was the lonely pathetic Mrrr and a pat pat on my leg just incase I hadn’t noticed the cat trying to get all up in my grill.

Monday Morning SAST

Monday, August 27th, 2007

I hate Mondays. I’m very much not a morning person and given the choice, I’d sleep in until noon every day. Buuuuut some people are of the opinion that anyone who’s slept in until noon has wasted the ENTIRE day away so I usually try to get up at the crack of 10am. That way I don’t have to deal with all those crazy morning people what with their blah blah lazy cakes because look! I got up in the morning alright? Sometimes I even push it to 11 because – still the morning.

There are a lot of you crazy morning people out there.

JSFR: Choco Boy

Saturday, August 25th, 2007

ARRGH! I’m not quite used to doing the dual blog thing so sorry to you Junkies who are relying on the JSFR RSS feed from this site. Anyway, Korean Mushroom hat candies have been up and reviewed over at the new JSFR site. Fortunately I’m still the queen of post dating so y’all haven’t missed Choco Boy by more than a couple days. Yay postdating?

Queen of the Ogres

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2007

You know…when I said “Rain, rain go away. Come again another day.” I wasn’t offering an invitation. Crimony! Sunday it rained, rained, rained, rained and then for fun it rained some more. Monday is was still raining because according to the bible, God only promised that he’d never again make it rain for 40 days and 40 nights straight. He never said anything about 39 and a half days of rain. It was raining so enthusiastically around 10am this morning that it was pitch black outside and I mistook a thunder clap for an HVAC worker falling down the vents (from about 12 stories up).

JSFR: Korean Red Ginseng Candy

Saturday, August 11th, 2007

I’m not sure why red ginseng and whether that implies that there might be a blue ginseng or a black ginseng or what but here you have them. I am told that in Korea, ginseng is a cure all sort of root. They use it in everything from soup to candy so if it ails you these just might be the J(K)SF you were looking for.
