Tonight I will be making:

Chicken & Shrimp Fajitas!


I've been hearing a lot about the P90X system lately from TV to friends who are actually on the program. Apparently it's really good! I hope to be getting my own copy soon so I can trim & tone up!

In the meantime, I found and loaded the Ab Ripper X video to my iPod. Previewing it, it looks crazy! I hope it works so that I can achieve the rockhard washboard abs I've always wanted!

Tonight I made...

Japanese pork katsu curry (with baby carrots & red skin baby potatoes) & rice
and B. made the miso salad with corn & croutons and cut the carrots for the curry.

DEEE-lish! :)

Lunch: I mad Korean BBQ short ribs & bulgolgi with a fried egg, Asian salad style cucumbers, and rice.

I'm stuffed.

This is my irky word of the...I don't know how long, but a VERY long time!

I really get annoyed how people create online photo albums and dub them as "Candids" and fill it with photos they take of themselves or with friends that are "non-photoshoot" quality. Those are not CANDID photos!!

"Candid photography is best described as un-posed and unplanned, immediate and unobtrusive."

If you are looking at the camera, smiling for it, posing for it, or whatever, it is NOT a candid photo!

A candid photo is a photo that someone takes of you slippin', not paying attention, or one that you take of someone else who is unsuspecting! Anyone remember watching a show called "Candid Camera"? "Smile! You're on candid camera!" The show where unsuspecting people were captured by surprise in miscellaneous acts? Yeah. There's the word in context.

*breathe* Ok, had to get that off my chest. Yes, I am a "hater" of these people who don't use their brains to use WORDS correctly.

Thanks for reading.

This world has come to be... crazed.

From the age of "I want it now" it has transitioned to the "Entertain me at all times"

We click & refresh. Constantly.

The evolution and 'revolution' of Friendster to Myspace to Twitter has shown a progression of the amount of instant stimulation/gratification that we crave in our daily lives. Our inner thoughts and feelings now have a platform in which to sit, play, amuse, and receive a response to. What we used to keep to ourselves while people watching, going through out daily movements, is now open to the public--to the world.

In the defense of feeding our self-narcissism and perpetuation of self-projection upon the world, I think it can be a good thing. I used to jot down the things I ate throughout the day and week, the things I need, the places I went into a calendar or journal to keep track of how I was living my life. Was I living a healthy lifestyle? Being productive? You have entries to pour over to evaluate.

An interesting thing... this type of communication.

Just Shallow

And so... I think I've decided to keep my shallow thoughts at just that. Restricted here to this blog. My 'deeper' thoughts will remain segregated from being linked from this blog. I guess I like a 'sense' of being able to rant semi-privately. Oh well!

Transformers footage...
WACK that they took down the video! AWESOME footage though!

Deep Thoughts...Shallow Thoughts

I've decided to separate my "deep" thoughts from my "shallow" thoughts bloggings. You'll see a link on the right-hand side for my trusty, old blog if you want to peruse and attempt to pick at my inner-thinkings!

Otherwise, read on... here... for my "shallow" thoughts.

My House

I got an invitation via my work e-mail to a party for Paper Magazine at MY HOUSE tomorrow.

I don't really feel like mingling with my industry people, and it is strictly by invitation only, but maybe someone wants to go pretending to me? hahaha...
