Sweet.

I need a new shirt. Unfortunately, I can afford only one and there are several that I want to splurge on. That said, I'm turning to YOU, the f-list.

The Choices are... )

So which is it to be, gang? Which shirt should the Nana buy?
dominochan: (supah dynamic cooking time!)
This is one from my cooking class. I have to share it because it's just that tasty.

Eggplant Sichuan-style

2oz garlic chili paste
1 oz soy sauce
2 oz sherry or Shaoxing wine
1 oz red wine vinegar
1 tsp sugar
2 oz chicken stock OR water
2 1/2 lb eggplant (I used Italian eggplant in class, but Chinese eggplant works too)
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp ginger root (minced or grated)
6 ea scallions, chopped
oil for sauteing
1 tbsp sesame oil

1oz = 2 tbsp

Now, mix the chili paste, soy sauce, wine, vinegar, sugar, and stock/water in a bowl. Set aside.

Cut the eggplant into approx. 1" dice. Heat oil in saute pan. Add eggplant and saute until browned. Remove eggplant from pan and drain on paper towels. Leave oil in pan.

Add scallions, garlic, and ginger to pan and cook until you smell the garlic (trust me on this XD). Throw eggplant back into the pan and add chili paste mixture. If desired, add a little cornstarch to thicken the sauce. Stir until the eggplant is coated with sauce. Drizzle with sesame oil and serve.

Oh, my GOD...

Evolution vs. Creationism, who will survive?!

This particular museum claims dinosaurs were on Noah's Ark.

Discuss.

I was gonna sit here and complain about my day (my relief was late, so I missed my ride home), but then Magnaflux on neo-geo.com showed us THIS:

Japanese researchers caught a LIVE GIANT SQUID.

I've literally waited for this day since I was a kid. ::dances around like an idiot::

Bones of a new dinosaur have been found in Spain. Its feet are the size of a football.

Fuck you. :p

Today I broke down and faced the music.

I brainwiped my Gateway.

My buddy Fygee said I could save the stuff I saved on the Gateway by hooking its harddrive up to my Dell. Unfortunately, the Gateway compy is like a fortress and I couldn't get inside the damn thing. So I swallowed my pride and reinstalled Windows on it, erasing everything on it. No more mp3s, pics, porn, etc. All gone. It works now, but it sucks that it came to this.

Now that it's in saleable condition, how much should I ask for it in terms of the yard sale? I wanted to go for $500, but it's already 6 years old (a fossil by computer standards). Maybe a little below that?

Ever since I started hanging out with you on a regular basis I developed a huge interest in geology, so here you go!

It's an article pertaining to some rocks found in the crust after some drilling on the ocean floor.

I've been finding a lot of stuff that reminds me of my friends, huh...? XD

Hey [livejournal.com profile] mister_neil, you like dinosaurs, right? I found this article and thought of you:

http://dsc.discovery.com/news/ap/20060612/birdfossil_arc.html

They found the missing link between birds and dinosaurs. Awesome read!

Wow, reporting a robbery is time consuming. I had to:

-take down the description
-call our six main locations
-alert our security guards
-contact the next gaming/coin company on the list
-fill out a report and place it with the faxes from Metro

The only problem is that I forgot to get the name of the dispatcher calling me. Man I suck. XD Oh well, I gave the name of the person I called on the chainness. Hey as long as I got the main info I'm good, I hope...

So I made a sausage and mushroom lasagna yesterday after work. It still feels strange to make dinner at nine in the morning, but it kept the evening meal feel to it. I personally think it turned out awesome. I OD'ed on the mushrooms, and should use more tomato sauce next time, but the finished product was delicious. I got the recipe from a Woman's World that was laying around in the dispatch office, so I xeroxed it and altered it to my tastes. I forgot (heh heh... or FUCK ONIONS!!) the onions and nutmeg, changed out the sweet sausage for sweet turkey sausage, and used the sundried tomato-basil sauce instead of the sausage tomato sauce.

Their "light and lean" chocolate mousse I royally fucked with. Instead of the light Swiss Miss hot cocoa mix I got their Dutch Chocolate hardcore mix. It turned out interesting. I think I'll need to beat it more though. Haha beat it... And maybe try whole milk as well. Mmmm, fattening...

I really should cook more often. I love to do so, but either I'm too tired or short on funds.

Oh well, that's all I got for the Banana report today. Wait, isn't today pay day? WOOOOOOO!!

Today I've decided to sacrifice about 3 hours of sleep so I can spend some time at the Hard Rock Hotel.

Why?

Depeche Mode tickets go on sale at noon. I was never able to grab them in the past due to them selling out and the hotel's "no employees" policy on certain concert. Now that I no longer work there, I'm so getting tickets. Thank you for agreeing to sit in line with me, Taiki. You're going to get lunch out of it! :3

[livejournal.com profile] thefridayfive ran late, so I'm doing it today.

I Got it bad got it bad got it bad... I'm hot for Teacher!! )

Somehow I managed enough time between calls to post this. It's like everyone's having issues tonight. CALM DOWN, VEGAS! We'll get your stuck bill out of the machine, really. ;)
