me with a giant can of ghee
Crap, this was my favorite pic of the few I took and of course it’s the only one that is blurry! Anywho, here’s a random list of stuff about me. I hope this help’s steph! if not, at least enjoy the novella! Foods you like, despise, can't eat (allergies, etc.) I have an insane sweet tooth, but it’s mostly for baked goods. I somehow gave up candy, except pocky. Pocky can count as a baked good right? Oh, and we’re pretty obsessed with chikki right now. MUST STOP. I pretty much will try anything and love going to new places. Right now I’m in a curry kick (I have the curry bible and love it!!). That’s how I ended up with the big can of ghee. I love Japanese, Thai, Malaysian, Indian, Korean, Mediterranean, Mexican and uhh pretty much anything hah. I’m a vegetarian, but I don’t think Steph’s sending me meat ? I hate licorice, caramel, raisins, and broccoli. Love avocado, chocolate, cupcakes (but not chocolate cupcakes. chocolate brownies on the other hand), mushrooms, tomatoes, and pretty much any other veg but broccoli. Stupid story: for a while I didn’t eat mushrooms because I watched the documentary on the “tree man” and when I went to grill portabellas after, it reminded me of him. Is that not PC? Sorry, but it’s the truth. I’m over it now. Umm what other random things can I throw at you. I’m not huge on ice cream anymore. I do like some salty snacks. Plantain chips anyone? On the coriander debate, I have to love it because it reminds me of home. Oh! Quinoa! Love it! Coffee vs. tea? Both! I love coffee, the “house coffee” right now is mountain Sumatra from larry’s beans! Before that it was one of their blends and before that nothing because I had “given up” coffee. (I’m weak and I think I just didn’t want to use my espresso maker anymore so I’m a French press girl now) I love to go to DD and get their iced latte. Yum. If I somehow find myself at a Starbucks I’ll get a chai latte. Tea is hard for me. I want to like it, but most of it tastes like oily water to me. Like you know when you go to a Chinese restaurant and they bring you the pot of black tea? I send them away because it’ll just be wasted on me. Don’t get me started on green, herbal or fruit teas! I almost threw up once from a strawberry tea. (I so wanted it to taste like kool-aid). I do have tea every morning with milk and sugar. I used to get the teavana thai tea blend, but now I just go to wegman’s and get their masala chai. So I guess I like “chai” style teas. Oh, and I don’t like flavored coffees. Weird flavors do not belong in my coffee. Where do you live? (I'm thinking climate, big city/small town, etc.) I live in south jersey, about 15 min outside Philly (not sure why everyone on twitter thinks I’m from Cali). I live in the burbs and I’ve been itchy to get out of here for a long while now. I’m hoping this is the year. It’s a small town, but we’re surrounded by so much that we really aren’t missing much (though I would love a REAL fabric store with both apparel and quilting fabric! and how about sewing classes besides how to make pillow!?). I’m not looking forwards to summer because I hate humidity (one of the reasons I left Florida). I often fantasize about moving to Maine (I love it up there) or Portland, OR (even though I’ve never been there). Can you tell I’m ready for a change? Favorite yarn(s)? I love merino, cashmere, silk. The only yarns I’ve used more than once have been by laines du nord, yarntini, or koigu. Hand dyed yarn is awesome, especially semi-solids. I’m suckered in by variegated yarn but have been burned more than once. I wish I had knit with more handspun. My favorite socks were knit with some crown mountain yarn. But I so don’t need more yarn. I have a ton and haven’t been able to knit because of my arm. Random allergies: angora, mohair, cascade (this one kills me because I WANT to use their yarn but anytime I try I die a little. I think it’s what they treat their yarn in), and maybe alpaca. Crafty pursuits - knit, crochet, spin, sew, quilt, any of these or others? I knit, sew, and quilt. I’ve tried spinning and crochet and they didn’t stick. Hobbies/pursuits/proclivities/passions (other than the aforementioned crafty ones, obvs) I love to cook (see giant can of ghee above), bake (though I had to stop because I was making way too many cupcakes), read (cooking, food, autobiographies, non-fiction, fiction, trashy chic lit, really anything). Does rock band count as a hobby? I used to do ashtanga yoga, but haven’t in months. Need to find a new teacher. Sigh. For a while I was playing around with archery, but there aren’t that many places you can just shoot arrows around here. Go figure. So my bow goes ignored. What do you do in life? (job, career, school, family, etc.) I’m a lapsed artist. I have a masters in photography, but haven’t touched my blad in a while. I worked on two knitting books (sensual knits and pure knits) and sometimes I dye bamboo yarn (sholadies with brollies
just got back from phuket! it was AMAZING! these girls in the picture are only a minute proportion of ladies who were offering thai massages in phuket. thai massage is sooo popular in phuket, there at least 10 massage places along every street!! it's crazy! they usually target the westerners so i'm glad they left us alone. summary: 1. i went crazy over the cheap food and facials. 2. we didn't manage to catch a muay thai match :( 3. went for thai cooking lessons (phuket thai cookery school) and it was fannnntastic. everyone who goes to phuket should definitely go for it. highlight of my trip! 4. a lot of the 'women' i saw on the streets turned out to be men. duane was like 'can't you see how broad their shoulders are? sweetie, i can assure you they're men.' mindblown! phuket's only 2 hours away from singapore. i'd gladly go there again for a short weekend getaway. and, i thoroughly enjoyed bartering with the tuktuk drivers!
