Tonight I made chicken noodle soup! It was a bit different though because I added peanut sauce and spinach (no celery, I hate celery). As always I put lots of Sriracha in my soup and it was delicious and mouth-burning! Yum.



100th Post!!!

So I keep hitting these milestones and I feel like I should be posting something more exciting, but you're just going to have to deal with the fact that I am boring.

My parents went down to Oregon to visit my grandparents. I haven't had the house to myself in a long time! I'm kind of excited about it, but I don't know what to do with myself. My plan was to do some sewing and watch crappy free OnDemand movies. I think I'll clean up my room a bit, do some laundry, and do some etsy stuff.

I decorated these shoes and put them on etsy today. They're kind of ridiculous and I like it.



Happy Saturday!

Yay I have 50 followers!

Kinda excited for my new readers and excited that I am doing the hello kitty giveaway because I suspect that is how some of you n00bz found me.

gross, I just typed "noobz"

Anyway! I appreciate all the thoughtful comments on my previous post about my ex. It's old news, just something that hits me every now and then. I cheered myself up today though because I took pictures of myself (one of my fave hobbies) wearing a vintage green cocktail dress I am selling on my etsy shop!




And I found this way too cute owl cookie jar!



It's 80 degrees here. I live in WA. WTF. Happy Weekend!

typing vomit

all i can fucking think about is you leaving me. and i wanted desperately to cling on to your leg with my legs and my arms and try to make you stay but it would have been humiliating for me and it was easier to just curl up on the futon with my face into the back of it and ignore you when you tried to say goodbye. i turned to you and kissed you and your eyes were watery i think and you said "you're so mad at me." and i said "yeah, i am." and then i went back to being curled up. you looked so hurt that i was so pissed at you. and i get that. i got it then too. but it wasn't worth it. you weren't worth it. and i'm terrified i won't find someone who is.

i remember being so excited to tell you i love you for the first time. i wrote about it in my livejournal in fact! i told people about it. "I'm going to L-Bomb him when he gets back from Utah." and then you came back and i was so fucking scared but i did it and you were mad that I beat you to it. your timing was always wrong.

i remember you telling me you might stay in seattle and not go to japan until i had graduated and we could go together and in the meantime you might go to UW and i remember the next thing we were at ashley's, she was cutting your hair, and you were showing her on google maps where you would be living and she was so excited for you and everyone else was so excited for you except for me. i was the only person who wanted to ruin it for you. and that should have been the end. when i realized you weren't staying for me, i should have walked away but i was fucking stupid and i stayed. and i regret that every time i see your goddamn face in my mind, trying to kiss me with your teary-welled eyes and you saying "you're so mad at me."

The last part of last night's weird dream.

I had a dream last night. This is random, scattered recollections of it:

I remember standing on a street corner helping a giant woman (she seemed giant, was probably at least 6 feet tall and very big boned) take off her coat. I could tell that she and her two friends were German because they were talking w/eachother. And I for whatever reason decided to try to talk to them. My german is terrible and I said "Entschuldigung Sie bitte" which is like "excuse me" as I tried to walk around them. Then I asked "Konnen ich hilfe mit der buttons?" cuz I could tell this woman seemed a bit "special" and was trying to get her coat off.

Anyway, I helped her get the coat off and then I started crossing the street. Jeremy was in the middle of the street crossing diagonally even though there were cars coming and he said "Bun! Come follow me this way! I discovered something that other people on earth don't know about yet!" So I followed.

Eventually I got to the building I apparently lived in. Peter was there and tried to jump over a fence but kept not making it. I said "Aah! Don't kill yourself." and then somehow a penis joke got started. It probably went something like this:

Don't kill yourself Peter!
I'll kill you!
I'll kill your penis!
Your mom has a penis.
YOU have a penis! OH wait.

Or something equally tasteful and classy. Both Christina and Jeremy were there to join in. Peter and Jeremy were roommates and Christina and I lived together. We heard ZJ whining from the apt so we hurried up the stairs to get him. He'd peed on the floor but I wasn't mad because I blamed it on myself for leaving him home alone so long.

OH SHIT. I remember I was going to give my dentist a blowjob (WTF?) And I can't remember why, but it was in payment for something like my fake tooth that I have. He was not attractive (in reality I actually have an okay-looking dentist). He kept trying to have sex with me though and I was like "Stay away from my pussy! I'm not having sex with you!" And also was taking FOREVER to finish. Eventually I just asked him "How long is this going to take? Are you ... close?" and he acted all mock offended but I could tell he was really pissed off and frustrated. He said "You don't have to stay here. It's not like I'm going to take anything back if you don't stay."

There were also other people that I know from church Sunday school including a girl who's dead now. And I remember in the dream contemplating whether or not I could ever date her because she was super butch in real life.

There were necklaces that had messages written in beads on them, but I just had 3 blank cords around my neck.

Anyway, Mr. Dentist's penis was awful I hated it. I left because I felt really awful and sleazy. And then I think that's when I met up with the German ladies on the street corner.

Moonwalking at the Washington State Capitol

Not the best shoes. Not the best dance floor. But here I am, moonwalking in Olympia at the capitol building.

Is she Oriental?


Tanned outside til I was too hot and uncomf.

Decided to go "jogging" but gave up after about 3/4 of a mile and started walking.I'm kinda out of shape. Haha.

I went about 3 miles and took my dog to the dog park where we met his doppelganger Casey. Casey's owner is a lovely old lady with some kind of accent that makes me think she's rich.

Later I saw her at the grocery store where I went to pick up my birth control and ground beef, brats, portabello mushrooms, bell peppers, and acorn squash which I grilled on the barbecue. Or barbecued on the grill? Oh, and I didn't grill the BC.

Ate with parents.

Then somehow the topic of conversation drifted to several of my ex boyfriends. My mom asked if Zoltan's (my ex that left me for Japan) new girlfriend was "oriental."

I said "What was that?" mock not hearing her. Just offering her a chance to save herself.

"Is she Oriental too?"

"Uhh ... Oriental?"

"Yeah, is his girlfriend Oriental?"

I sighed. "'Asian' is more appropriate, Mom."

"What's wrong with Oriental? I've always said that."

"Yeah, well there's nothing inherently wrong with the word Oriental, but it's just not PC. Just say Asian. I don't call you Occidental."

"Does Occidental mean Caucasian? People should realize my generation grew up saying Oriental."

"No. Occidental doesn't mean white. So Oriental shouldn't mean Asian. Occidental and Oriental are east/west terms. And your generation is not old enough to pull that card. Grandma can say oriental and I won't correct her, but you should know better."

"Well, fine. Is she Asian?"

"I think she's Pacific Islander."

"What's that?"

"She is of Pacific Island descent."

Now back to sewing.

Survey. Seattle. Socializing. Sizzling.

So the poll has been closed for awhile and the results were kinda all over the place. Only one answer got zero votes. The question was about what kind person you'd prefer to see your ex with. The results were as follows:

a hideous person. 3 (25%)
a frumpy/average person. 0 (0%)
a super gorgeous person. 2 (16%)
someone who's good looking, but not necessarily better looking than me. 2 (16%)
no one. ever. 2 (16%)
it doesn't matter to me what their next partner is like. 3 (25%)

I think I picked someone who's good looking, but not necessarily better looking than me. For those of you who don't care what their ex's new bfs/gfs look like, good for you. Haha.

Speaking of ex's, I saw my ex (the one that never paid the parking ticket he incurred while borrowing my car) while I was visiting Seattle. I was actually in Tacoma because my friend and I LOVE shopping at this really sketchy mall called B&I (click for article). And we were driving back north when I happened to look out the window and see a dude getting out of his car. We drove right past him and I said "That was Isaac." She slowed down a bit and I yelled "Keep driving!" and then proceeded to have a heart attack.

Anyway, besides that heart attack incident Seattle was good. I ate too much, didn't get enough sleep and did nothing productive but it was wonderful. I got to eat Korean food, see people walking cute puppies, get drunk in an awkward situation and still be tipsy the next morning, eat Molly Moon's ice cream, lots of thrift store shopping, and even visit the capitol building in Olympia on the way home!

The lovely view during the day.

Beautiful nighttime view.

That's a lot of bulgogi.



That chandelier looked way bigger in real life than it does in this picture.

Oh yeah, and also went to Shipwreck Beads for the first time. It wasn't as great as I thought it would be.

Need to get to work sewing some custom aprons. Happy Memorial Day!

careful, it's chanel

These are worth reading:

My favorite text from last night?

(323): Do you think an esthetician would be willing to wax the Chanel Cs into my crotch? That way, whenever a guy gets ready to pound on it I can go "Careful, it's Chanel."

Does anyone remember this ad? lol

Dont believe in anything
That you cant waste

I am so hungry. I don't like to talk a lot about eating/weight issues here because it seems trivial, but I am really irritated I have a pair of jeans that don't fit me anymore. Honestly I fucking hate working out. It never works for me as a means of weight loss because it makes me SO hungry and I end up building a ton of muscle and putting on fat too because I eat so much more. I'm trying to cut calories without going too crazy about it, but that's hard for me to do too.

Today is sunny, hopefully that will help my mood.

Today I have an "intake appointment" at a mental health clinic. I am not sure what this means, but I think it has something to do with changing therapists. Not excited at all about that. Also not excited about how my mom wants to go with me and then go to thrift shopping afterward. Meh. She might buy me stuff though, so maybe I should have her come along. And I do hate driving ...


I started writing some letters to friends that I've said I'd send fun surprises to. If anyone wants a snailmail letter and probably stickers and maybe some other fun stuff, send me your address to moenoep[at]hotmail[com]. I just bought a bunch of stamps and I love sending and receiving mail.

I took these pictures a few days ago when I was out sunbathing. Hope it's another day like this ...

WTF am I going to eat for dinner?

hahahaha. I am hungry because it's 7pm and I've only eaten 4 crackers and a glass of Sierra Mist Free because I've been making this all day!




And last night I made this:

Well that's odd ...

I think my ex boyfriend is dating someone new. He's at least boning her and going on a vacay to Japan with her (I was stalking his facebook). Last night I was thinking "Hmm, wow it's been almost 5 months since I broke up with him. That's a kind of long time."

In many ways I'm totes over it but every now and then I fall apart and cry over it. Or I remember he gave me an engagement ring and I'm kinda like wtf? I don't know what to do with it. I don't think it's worth enough to bother selling and it's not something you can just throw away. /:

Mandz, Jeremy, Michael and I were talking about whether we'd prefer to see an ex with someone really attractive or someone ugly. Mandi and Michael said they'd prefer their ex to be with someone both ugly AND has a shitty personality. Jeremy and I were the opposite and said we'd rather have our ex's new gf/bf be physically attractive and have a great personality.

It's not that I'm particularly selfless or kind (because I'm not!). haha. It's just that if my ex started dating someone ugly and lame, I'd think they had low standards and assume that I too am ugly and lame. What do you guys think? I'm going to make this the new poll, but I want to hear your thoughts in the comments.

Would you rather have your ex's new bf/gf be attractive or ugly? Douchebag or nice?

I forgot how ridiculous this video was. Hahaha.

2dollar2sday=TMI Thursday and visit to PDX

It's 4am. I just got home.

My friend Michael came down to visit again this week (his weekend is in the middle of the week). He left work early and one of his co-workers asked where he was going? When Michael told him, co-worker asked "Oh, are you going to Jake's??" which is a gay bar in Olympia. "It should be poppin'" he added because it was Cinco de Mayo.

Anyway, when Michael told me about what his co-worker said, he was surprised to learn that I had been there on multiple previous occasions. It's the most hetero gay bar I've ever been to but it's pretty fun, so we decided to check it out. It turned out that there were $2 beers and $2 well drinks. Michael was driving so he just had a beer and I only had two vodka tonics. However, sometimes ... and this is where the TMI part comes in ... certain vodkas have a laxative effect for me. I'm not really sure which vodkas it is, so it's a bit of a roulette game for me. Cinco de Mayo was not my lucky night. We came back home, I felt fine. I fell asleep but woke up about 4am and my stomach was aching terribly! I managed to fall back asleep for a bit but starting at around 5am I had to wake up and run to the bathroom about every half hour or so until noon or so when it had finally flushed out of my system.

Practically pooping your pants is always awkward but especially when you have guests at your house. Luckily, I got better eventually and once I felt it was safe to be a fair distance away from a toilet, we decided to head down to Portland to visit some friends.

We met up with Mandi and Jeremy and they were starving so we went to The Original Taco House. We got drinks and some food (I had a tequila sunrise because I thought it wise to stay away from the vodka) and it was a pretty decent place despite looking hella sketch.

On the drive home from TOTH we saw this old Santa Claus-looking man canoodling with a much younger, scantily clad woman in a skeezy parking lot behind a gentlemen's club. We were terribly rude and tried to "discreetly" take camera phone pictures but the car was moving a bit fast so we made Jeremy casually drive through the parking lot for a closer look.
