Very happy birthday wishes to [profile] jade_okelani. <3

I am very happy with my Tumblr queue at the moment. :D Bwahahaha

So suddenly [personal profile] adelagia and I are terrible at Pandemic. We don't know what's happened. Possibly it is just the Pandemic gods punishing us for our hubris. We got really good at it, even trying Legendary mode after 5 and 6 epidemics seemed like child's play. But the last few times we've played, we have sucked. We must have played 20 games without A SINGLE WIN. We had various role combos, some good, some bad. They all resulted in us letting the world succumb to horrible disease. We always played with purple and 6 epidemics. We refuse to go back to 5 for an 'easy' win, but 6 is totally owning us. :/ I refuse to believe that all the times we won before was a fluke!!

Last weekend T., [personal profile] slitherhither and I met up for dinner at the Cheesecake Factory, then we went to see THE AVENGERS!!!! It was B.'s first time (and my seventh >.>), so that was awesome. Later we asked which of the guys she liked most, and she totally went against type (androgynous and thin) and picked Thor! Just goes to show, Chris Hemsworth is completely irresistible.

So I read this fanfic that started out very promising, but petered out by the middle for me. It was a Sherlock xover, and had John Watson taking over for Coulson in the Avengers handling department. I freaking love Watson/Martin Freeman, but I had several issues with the story as it progressed. Cutting in case of spoilers for the show/fic/etc. )

Celebrity quotes that have made me laugh recently:

- When asked if older sister Maggie ever beat him up, Jake Gyllenhaal responded, "Depends on what you call beating up. She performed the musical Cats for our parents, and she made me lick milk from a bowl while she sang, which was, in a way, abuse."

- Joshua Jackson on A Song of Ice and Fire: "I've got a slightly obsessive problem in that when I get into books, particularly a series of books, I cannot put the fucking things down. Nobody told me that the story is not done yet and that he takes, like, seven years between books. Last summer I plowed through something like 9,000 pages of A Game of Thrones and I finally started saying, 'Wow, that's weird. I don’t feel like there's an end coming.' I got to the end and my friend said, 'Oh no, it'll be like ten more years.' I grabbed him by the shirt, pulled him close and said, 'What?!! I will have kids in high school by the time these things are finished!'"

:)))))))))))))))))))))))))

You guys, this is the best recipe ever posted. You must read the comments. I saw an article on Slate this morning that was all about this recipe, and my coworkers and I have spent the last 30 minutes crying from laughter. No recipe comment stereotype is left unsaid!

I have had a revelation about pour over coffee. Using a gift card that I got last year, I bought all the equipment necessary to make pour over coffee, and stopped by Whole Foods yesterday to buy some single-origin coffee beans. I wasn't sure what to expect, if this would be yet another disappointing hype, or if it'd be amazing. If you like coffee, I think the pour over method is definitely worth it. I can't believe how many flavors I got from the cup of coffee I made last night (though less so with the cup I made this morning, so it's still dependent on the type of coffee). Finally, I know what all those descriptions are talking about, when they say that a particular type of coffee has hints of chocolate/caramel/orange/what have you!

I have beautiful Jeremy Renner images to share with you from Tumblr. You know you want to click. )

So I forgot to mention another teen book that I read recently, maybe because it doesn't belong in the category of "terrible teen lit" that was the theme from yesterday's post. I finally read Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. I enjoyed it. It was well written, which is like, 90% of the battle. BUT. Potentially spoilery. )
sarea: (go crazy)


OMG. Do not watch this unless you're willing to flail in public. So f*cking funny. Lots of Jeremy being his derpy self, but my fave parts are:

1) Maria Hill channeling Cobie Smulders channeling Robin Scherbatsky ("Coooooooooulllllsoooooooooooooooon")

2) Thor's mishandling of Mjölnir (it's like a graceful dance)

3) Bruce Banner abandoning the rest of them to their doom (which is so what I'd do)

This is a post restricted to things that make me smile.

Jeremy Renner. It's hard to fathom how someone so utterly DORKY (like, all the time. Seriously) can be so hot. Somehow he manages.

- My top 5 favorite photos of him. )

- Being forced to sing "New York State of Mind" by Jimmy Fallon, and the look on Jimmy's face/his reaction afterward when Jeremy actually starts to sing. Everyone who forces Jeremy to sing (it's bizarre how often it happens) has the same reaction! :)) They just don't expect it. Watch the video here; I have no clue how to embed it and you can't find it on YouTube.

- In his Academy Award nominee questionnaire, under "Do you use social media? If you tweet, what is your Twitter name?" he wrote, "NO. Can't be bothered." Ahahahaha so awesome. <333333333333 Plus he's left handed and his Starbucks drink is an Americano. CLEARLY ALL THIS MEANS WE ARE MEANT TO BE FRIENDS. ...yes.

Clint/Natasha.

- This is a movie that needs to happen. )

- Does it, or does it not, look like they are one second away from planting one on each other in this? )

- There's tons of Clintasha art on Tumblr, but this is one of my recent faves. I love protective!Natasha and hurt!Clint, probably because it's reminiscent of the movie. OMG this gives me so many feeeeeeeeeeels. )

- Jeremy and Scarlett being really cruel. *cries* )

- My icon!! [personal profile] allisnow and [personal profile] sugar_fey are right, it is the adorablest thing ever.

- It's been awhile since I last did a recs post, and I've read a crap ton since then, so I'm just going to rec the stories that have really stood out for me. That's not to say that I haven't enjoyed others, or that I've read every fic -- I'm sure I've missed some, so if you can't believe I left a fabulous fic off this list, enlighten me! I tried to keep the list fairly manageable. Have some C/N fic recs. )

Green Day. This is "Oh Love," a new single from ¡Uno!, the first of three upcoming studio albums that will be released between Sept 2012-Jan 2013.



I don't know how they can continue to be so awesome. Oh wait, yes I do. His name is Billie Joe Armstrong. Billie Joe is one of those guys I've loved for forever. I mean, he's incredibly talented, writes/creates quality music that is consistently thoughtful and catchy, is a total superstar, holds ideals I agree with, and has been married to his wife, with whom he has two kids, for eighteen years, since he was 22. In this day and age that is a minor miracle from anyone, much less from a highly successful punk rocker. Seriously, how can anyone not be at least a little in love with him?! I've only seen Green Day in concert once, but it was amazing. Or rather, Billie Joe was amazing. I'm sure Trey and Mike must've been there too, but... Billie Joe is Green Day.

Dog pictures are on a roll. First there was that baking dog. Now there's this. )

OK so, I saw The Dark Knight Rises. I was disappointed. I'm going to be like one of 10 people in the world who didn't like it, and I've made my peace with that. It was the same with Lost in Translation (*fistbumps [personal profile] adelagia*). But anyway, before I talk about the movie and the issues I had with it, let me share something non-spoilery that happened before the movie began.

The first thing I said to [profile] corianderstem when the theater lights dimmed was, "I hope we get a Bourne Legacy trailer." I was so excited when those familiar opening frames started playing. I've seen that particular trailer a hundred times online, but never in the theater, and seeing it on a huge screen was super awesome. However, it was the very last trailer, and the theater we were at likes to do this showy thing where they LOWER THE CURTAINS AGAIN before the actual feature presentation, so the final minute or so of the BL trailer was obscured by the FUCKING CURTAINS!!!!! Which then rose again to show the actual movie! Seriously? SERIOUSLY?! I was so fucking annoyed. Like anyone needs the fake anticipation of the curtains rising again for the actual movie. Totally ruined the only big-theater viewing of the BL trailer that I've seen. -.- You know, if you're going to insist on doing something like that, do it RIGHT and just STOP the projector AFTER all the trailers are DONE. Gawd. :-l x 1000000000000000000000

Spoilery The Dark Knight Rises commentary. )

After the movie, C. and I went to eat at the Ballard El Camion, which just has such yummy food. And long lines that don't let up.

On Saturday [personal profile] adelagia, [personal profile] slitherhither and I ended up having an impromptu Taiwanese cuisine day, starting with Boiling Point and ending with Henry's Taiwan. It was lovely to see B., who is so busy these days that we rarely get to see her. In between, we played Pandemic and had frozen yogurt at Peaks.

Did you know you can play Pandemic for free here? (When I told [profile] jade_okelani she was like, "Well now when are we ever going to do anything else?") It's kind of clunky and not as satisfying as actually playing with the actual pieces, but still, it totally works. The only thing is that it's a German site, so it's half in English and half in German, which makes for a somewhat confusing/frustrating experience getting started, lol. But yay that I can brush up on my (nonexistent) German? [personal profile] akscully was a very good sport and helped me figure it out, even though by the time we finished playing a couple of games with Jade it was like 4 in the morning for her. :))

Two hilariously funny things from Tumblr recently:

1) My neighbor's dog won't stop baking! ) Best response to a typo ever. Seriously, this makes me laugh so hard every time I see it. It's just so ridiculous. I think I might have to frame it and put it up somewhere in the house, because every time I encounter it, it's going to cheer me up.

2) "Scary Smash" - Kids make up a story, adults act it out. This one stars Joss Whedon. It's awesome.

sarea: (bring me a sandwich)
I love all the Sexy and I Know It parodies. First was the Nerdy and I Know It Starcraft video, now there's these Hunger Games "texts." Seriously this new LJ cut sucks. )

Game of Thrones 2x3 'What Is Dead May Never Die' )

Restaurant Week: Tilth )

I'm starting to realize that I really don't need to wait for RW to enjoy these restaurants more often. What generally ends up being the case is that we basically get the dessert for free... yet the desserts are often the weakest part of the whole meal (with the exception of Mistral Kitchen and maybe the Tom Douglas restaurants). I'd almost always rather have another savory course.

I just found out that ordering an entire case of Head Country BBQ sauce was totally unnecessary. It turns out that the butcher I occasionally go to carries it. >< SIGH. I wonder if there's any chance at all they'd take it off my hands and I could get meat in exchange. Hmm.
sarea: (jesse peekaboo)
I think I'm getting the hang of Tumblr. It's, as [personal profile] akscully says, a "superficial way to interact with fandom." I can't imagine building friendships or having meaningful conversations over there the way you can on LJ, but it's a great way to consume and share amusing things. Two GoT 'The Night Lands' examples. )

I'm such a loser that I didn't step foot outside my house all day yesterday, so I didn't even know that it had reached 70°F. !!! But I'm not going to let Seattle fool me this year, as it has every spring. There are a couple of warm days and I think, "Yay, spring is really here!" forgetting that spring does not come to Seattle until July. In ASoIaF terms, THIS IS THE TIME OF THE FALSE SPRING. It'll get us all excited then turn into winter again. -.- Mark my words.

The reason I was such a shut-in yesterday was because a) I was mainlining The Wire; and b) making delicious things to eat, like the Best Biscuits Ever and a veggie burrito that's so good, I don't even notice or care that there's no meat in it.

OK, The Wire. IT'S SO GOOD. I mean, that should come as no surprise, because every critic ever says that it's a great show, but after The Sopranos I'm a bit wary of such claims. Not that The Sopranos isn't a good show, but after watching 4+ seasons of it I didn't feel like it was the best show that's ever been on television, which is something that's commonly said. It's also said of The Wire, but while Breaking Bad still has my vote on that score, I can at least understand why people say that of The Wire. It's just so fucking real, and has heart, and tells a good damn story. It's inspirational at the same time that it successfully conveys the gray areas of life. I like the characters, even the bad ones, because I can understand where they're coming from. That is totally juxtaposed with the characters on The Sopranos, who I pretty much hated all the time. They all seemed like selfish assholes, whereas The Wire's characters are about living the life you've been given or have chosen, but it's real life and you do what you have to to survive. I guess that's supposed to be what The Sopranos is about too, but it's just different.

Slightly spoilery thoughts from S1. )

I also watched a British movie called Exam, which had a fantastic premise but didn't actually deliver on it. I had many issues while watching it (though it was entertaining enough), and even more after talking about it with [profile] jade_okelani. Premise: The film is set in present-time United Kingdom in an alternate history, where a disease called The Virus has made a large part of the population dependent on medication that must be taken every few hours to prevent falling into a coma followed by death. Most of the film takes place in a single room, where eight candidates take an exam for an important job as the Personal Assistant to the CEO of a mysterious bio-tech company that is said to work on a cure for The Virus.

One of our vendors at work yesterday catered Din Tai Fung for lunch and I am practically still full today from it. I love DTF even though it's extremely overpriced because the food is good and there is a dearth of good Chinese dumplings here (in fact, the supposed second "best" place to DTF around here is so crappy I won't even go). It's 1,000 times better to eat at the restaurant though, because the food's piping hot.

[profile] jade_okelani is finally getting an Xbox! This means I might have some motivation to tidy up my living room after all -- I'll need the Kinect space to play multiplayer games w/ her. :))

I confessed to [personal profile] akscully yesterday that I'm starting to develop an interest in Robb/Sansa. I put it in my interests, and even trying four different variations, I was the ONLY person who had it listed. Wow. I'm MORE OF A DEGENERATE than anyone else on LJ when it comes to this? Really? I almost feel duty bound to start a Robb/Sansa comm, except I'm kind of afraid that [personal profile] grrm is going to come yell at me. True story: I was never that interested in Robb until Richard Madden made me like him.

Gasp... we have joined the ranks of those hooligans in California! Liquor can now be sold in grocery stores! (Thanks to [personal profile] ropo for the link. I truly don't keep close tabs about the sale of liquor. I'm not [personal profile] akscully, for pete's sake.) Sounds like it'll be good for the state economy. Or something. And also Costco, they clearly had a lot invested in it. It's never been a huge deal for me, of course, being someone who only buys liquor rarely, and then only because I use it in cooking. Plus there was a state liquor store right next to the Safeway down the street from me, so it was already convenient. It was just a very odd thing during the first year or so after I moved here to realize that I couldn't get booze at the grocery store, that Washington had state-run stores. It seemed very quaint. What a cute, uncorrupted little place I've moved to! Now, of course, it's just as bereft of morality as any other decent place. :))

LOL just heard this from a coworker, I guess it's making the rounds on Facebook amongst Seattlites: "There are four seasons in Seattle: spring, summer, autumn, winter, and enough." It's officially spring, but it's like 37 outside. It is totally ENOUGH right now. I am so done with how cold it's been. It snowed AGAIN on Saturday before T and I met up!

Finally saw The Walking Dead finale last night. Zommmmmbiiiiiiies. )

I am in love with the following songs at the moment:

- We Are Young, fun.
- Some Nights, fun.
- Drive By, Train
- The One That Got Away, Katy Perry
- Lights, Ellie Goulding
- A Thousand Years, Christina Perri (I wanted to leave this one off because of its association with Twilight, but I didn't know that when I started liking the song, so)

I don't know why I have been talking about food even more than usual lately. BUT I had to mention that I am very excited about the reservations I have this Sat for Joule, the restaurant that K and I go to monthly. K's going to be in NorCal until I leave for SoCal, and I won't be back until March, so this is my only opportunity to have their February supper. Since they're not good about updating FB about what that is on a monthly basis, I just called and asked what the menu is... and it sounds ah-may-zing. Joule's February Family Supper menu. )

One of my favorite coworkers in the world, C., lives in New York. She's turning 50, which she just told me and blew my mind, because she literally looks like she's in her mid-30s. Anyway, the last time [profile] jade_okelani and I were in New York, I asked her for recommendations on places to go to eat, and she gave great advice. Anyway, for her birthday her husband is taking her (and 8 guests) here. Her birthday cake is going to be from this bakery. Look at one of their cakes:



They also make cupcakes:



Seriously, I can't even imagine the work that went into these.

Now a little something for you gamer nerds -- and if you like old skool Eminem ("Guilty Conscience" is one of my favorite Eminem songs), this is a really awesome parody of that song + Starcraft II. I don't play SC2 enough to fully understand all the terminology, but it really doesn't matter.

Thanks to [personal profile] adelagia, I've now watched the pilot episode of City Hunter (based on a manga, of course). I LOVED IT. It is slick. It is an actual adult drama -- maybe a first for me in terms of Asian dramas. >.> It's more Alias than ... well, there's really no American TV equivalent to the wonderful guilty pleasures that are Asian teenish dramas, but let's say Gossip Girl, just to distinguish the genres. If you watched Boys Over Flowers and found Lee Min Ho hot (which, unless you're an incomprehensible person like [personal profile] akscully, you probably did), you will find him even hotter in this.

Plot summary: North Korea does something terrible to South Korea. SK plots revenge, and sends a team of commandos to do something terrible to NK. Then there's a political change of heart, but it's too late to stop the commandos. In order to save their own asses, SK disavows any knowledge of what the commandos did and goes so far as to kill all of them as they're returning from the mission. There's one survivor, a guy saved by his best friend. The survivor kidnaps his best friend's son (as you would) and raises him, making him go through intense combat training so that one day the kid can exact revenge on the political a-holes who betrayed them all. The result is that Jun Pyo Yoon Sung is basically a total badass (except he doesn't seem to know he is one). He's got Lee Min Ho's vulnerability and charisma, and so far what Yoon Sung wants more than anything is to find and meet his real mommy.

See??? You so want to watch it!

There's romance too, but it hasn't really happened yet so I'm not sure what I'll think of it, because I already like the story without, so it might just be extra crap I don't want or need. I hate it when movies/shows force a love interest just because they feel the hero/ine has to have one. The girl seems cute enough though.

Also, I have a couple of funny things to share with you. First is this article, which is totally not work safe and is completely un-PC, but is hilarious. They're "money-saving tips" that people are actually using for real. Wow, what people will do, to save pennies! I mean, I love not spending money when I don't have to, but even I wouldn't go to these lengths.

There's also this, which you may have seen in a forward from someone you rarely talk to, but which is also very entertaining. You have two cows... )

It's the last round of the YA Crush tournament and Jace (Mortal Instruments) is up against Zachary (Shade). I'm on Team Jace but vote for who you like here!

I have seen 3 more movies since my last post. Captain America, Thor (that's where my subject line comes from :P), and HP7p2. I have enjoyed them all. But I think I enjoyed Chris Hemsworth the most. I cannot WAIT to see the Joss Whedon-directed Avengers movie!

Are there any other Starcraft fans out there? I haven't played Starcraft II yet but it's pretty much the same concept so I still know what's going on when watching vids. Anyway, Day[9], a pro player who mostly shoutcasts these days, hosts "funday Monday" in which there's a theme, something you have to do, during your games. In this particular instance, it's that you have to lift off your command center in some way (playing Terran, of course). In part 2, starting around the 14 min mark, he shows two games that were so funny I cried from hilarity. The second game... omg the second game. I mean, I'm not a great player myself so I can't call them idiots or anything but... let's just say it was a comedy of errors.

[personal profile] ropo told me about the Thundershirt, which is apparently just some shirt that dogs wear that will solve excessive barking, anxiety, etc. Has anyone actually ever tried this on their dog or know someone who has? Does it actually work? Because if so, I'm getting one for Talis and never taking it off again.

Finally, have y'all been following the posting of stories on [community profile] dgficexchange? I believe we are nearing the end. I participated, but can't tell you which story is mine, obvs. But there have been a number of good ones (again, can't tell you which I liked or that would make it obvious which ones I didn't write), so if you like D/G you should check it out!

So BEWARE letting me be around your kids.

Something weird's going on with my arms. Remember last year when I was having shoulder pain/weakness in my right arm? Well it never really went away even after physical therapy. What's weird is that it's now spread to my left arm! So now both my arms are all achy and painful (not so bad now, but last night was pretty bad)! I have no idea WTF is going on. My physical therapist and K. both suggested that I take Aleve regularly for two weeks and see if that helps with the pain (as it will bring down the inflammation). I still haven't done it, but now I'm thinking maybe I will. I want to do it before I make another appointment to see my doctor, because I'm not really sure there's anything she can do. At least if I try this out, it'll either work, or it will be something I can tell her that I did and it didn't work, which might help narrow down what might be wrong. :/

I was reading this very enjoyable article: Boy Toy: Ken's sad and lonely life in Barbie's shadow, which had gems such as...

According to the amazacrazily comprehensive collector's site Keeping Ken -- which is not safe to click on if you don't want to have your mind blown -- Mattel overhauled his body mold in the late '60s so that he could "reflect the rugged masculinity" of the times. These days, he is pretty cut. When my friend Marion, who is 3½, heard I was working on this piece, she voiced concern that I take notice of "his mighty arms."

and

"The cruelest comment on his genital deficiency … came in 1964," writes Lord, "with 'Cheerful Chef,' a backyard barbecue costume that included a long fork skewering a pink plastic weenie."

The article then led me to this one, which reports on Ken and Barbie getting back together after 7 years apart (they broke up in 2004). Apparently meeting back up on the set of Toy Story 3 rekindled their romance (I'm not kidding, this is in the article).

Yesterday, Barbie hinted that something might be in the works on her Facebook page with the status update: "Who knows...maybe I'll have a Valentine this year." Early this morning, Barbie changed her status on Facebook to "In a Relationship."

You really have to appreciate that Barbie is such an iconic toy that fanfic about her is actually reported by actual news outlets.

Tried a new burger joint per [profile] jade_okelani's recommendation: Five Guys Burgers and Fries. They have a ton of great press/awards from the east coast/south, but I think they are slowly making their way westward. Apparently they started out in the DC area; I can't believe I never heard about this place when I lived there. They have 2 locations in the Seattle area, one in Northgate and one "coming soon" in Lynnwood (yay). It was very, very good. I still like In-N-Out burgers more, but their fries are way better.

I got to use Lexus Destination Assist for the first time trying to find this place, lol. Jade had told me it was called "Five Brothers." So this woman was trying to help me find it, and we kept going back and forth on what it could be; I knew the location and that it served burgers. The coolest thing was her finding it for me, then "beaming" the location to the navigation system in my car, which then led me to it. For as long as my free trial lasts, I won't have to call Jade for addresses/directions to places!

Books I am excited about:

- Mockingjay, the last book in the Hunger Games trilogy. Amazon has told me that they've shipped it. Yay!

- Clockwork Angel, Cassie Clare's new steampunk series, which is going to be out at the end of this month.

- The Passage by Justin Cronin, which [profile] corianderstem highly rec'ed. I've been looking for a used copy at HPB, but couldn't find one until the other day when I found a signed first edition -- argh! I can't resist such things! So I ended up paying more than cover price for it. Sigh, hopefully one day it will be worth more.

- Tongues of Serpents, which I hope to have soon. I'm #3 in the queue!

I watched Inception again this weekend. Still love it. Even after second viewing I still have some unanswered questions. If your brain wants to go there... )

I also saw The Switch, which I had great hopes for because I love the leads. Ugh, what a total waste of talent. It was terrible. It sucked the life out of me when I was watching it. Spoilery stuff. )

Finally, I also saw Brick, a whodunit set in high school, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. I LOVED it. He is so mysteriously hot. And it's an excellent movie, even if the dialogue takes getting used to.

We regret to announce the untimely demise of Sarea Okelani, who on the 5th of May of this year was randomly completely consumed by passing aliens. This unfortunate incident occurred in a small, unmarked sedan in Seattle, WA. The deceased was reported to have shouted "Well, there goes the rest of my day..." just before expiring. Sarea Okelani is survived by some thankless family members, who are even now looting the personal effects of the departed. Funeral services will be held the 4th of next month.

Today I saw this quote, and I wish I'd had this ready as a response: "Everyone is born right-handed, but only the greatest overcome it." HaHA, so take that, Mr. G! Yes, this is one of those 'this is what I should have said' two months late.

Edit: I absolutely had to do one for Jade. *falls over laughing*

We regret to announce the unpleasant death of Jade Okelani, who on the 4th of December of this year was meticulously buried alive by a large rabid squirrel. This unfortunate incident occurred in an adult bookstore in Las Calamas, CA. The deceased was reported to have shouted "Stand back! I'm a professional!" just before expiring. Jade Okelani is survived by fifty or so gerbils. Funeral services will be held the 19th of next month.

Edit #2: Someone asked me if I knew where to find Tikal's story, which I quote on my sidebar. I'm sorry, I don't. :( I read that story at FF.net. If I recall correctly, this particular author had said something about being a big canon supporter, and since OotP made D/G impossible, they would eventually take down all their stories that didn't fall within JKR's universe. Er ... okay. Don't ask me how OotP made D/G impossible -- as if it was so likely in the first place. What happened in the previous books that made it canonically acceptable, that was then nixed in OotP? Have no clue.

Edit #3: This is so incredibly wrong, but ... I've purchased this. Xbox Karaoke, what will they think of next? The coolest part is this: Insert your favorite CD and sing along when Mixer strips out the vocals. Lalala!!!
