MMM

yesterday, another bikeventure!

Melatonin
what i am wearing: Vans x Virginia Kraljevic, black shorts from target, pink vans, fox reflex gloves

when i got home from work i went to check out an aparment my friend, Melanie, is leasing in Makiki. was supposed to take the bus but it was so nice and sunny outside i decided to bike it.

i left my bike at her place then we went lunch after that. headed to Manoa Marketplace to check out Fendu Boulangerie. they have fresh breads, desserts and a small lunch menu. Mels had curried chicken sandwich and pain au chocolat. i had a hamakua Mushroom pizza and bought a fuji apple danish for later. we walked around while she picked up some munchies for her mainland-bound brother. the usual omiyage kind of stuff, li hing sour patch kids, li hing sour apple rings, etc. i picked up some carrot juice from safeway (and got a really good coupon for Mcdonalds on the receipt: buy one get one free filet-o-fish! but it expires on halloween and is only good at the manoa marketplace location.)

next we headed to cookie corner in ala moana (more snacks to be mailed) and did some quickie browsing at f21, nordstrom (shoes, tee hee), t&c, claires (damn, haven't been in that store for years!)... and then back to Mels.

i went to makiki over Prospect so i decided to go home via downtown for different scenery. (this was a lot faster and i think next time i head to makiki i will go over Auwaiolimu which i didn't consider. Prospect has a nice view but is too long, took 20 minutes to get there. bleh.)

when i got home i ate my pastry.

Fuji Apple Danish
it survived my bag!

it so amazing and tasty... i can never eat a napoleon's bakery naple again! this is 30000000000 times more delicious than that generic stuff! i must return again soon- and also try their other desserts!

after that i just went to sleep since i had to work again that night. (which, in case you were wondering, was pretty busy. was blood bank/heme. ER was really full! had some platelets and a cross match and the usual low WBC diffs during morning rounds.)


ok, that's it!

Melatonin

REMEMORABLE

HELLO OCTOBER, HALFWAY GONE.
time goes by so fast when you're busy! can't believe my last post was in september. business also means nothing exciting to report anyway. just the normal stuff, work, school, napping, homework, epic 3on3 basketball games, and LARP. oh wait, i guess there are some interesting things to mention after all! :O
just one weekend, jam-packed with fun stuff. i guess it would be cooler with pictures but i'm so backed up with photo editing (still have bon dance pictures. still have some chinese new year pictures- LOL!- and other random pictures form august and also skateboard pictures, tweeball pictures, polaroids to scan, and two rolls of film to develop from july- mountain climbing and beachness. OTL the only way i finished all the beach house pictures was forcing myself to do batches every day. also, i had a deadline of angry relatives who want pictures of their kids and grandkids done nowwwwwww.) that i might not get to it for another week.

n_____n
ok, i lied, i did do some editing, here's a sneak peak.

i also don't have any random topics to talk about; sometimes i think of topics i might want to talk about and write it down on a little scrap paper for later but recently i haven't had anything. too busy to even have an imagination, ahahahaa!

let me browse around the internet for some topic starters...

walking .- *doo dee doooo*

oh yes, how perfect, @scrivener's friday 5!

1) What non-food items are in your refrigerator or freezer?

i keep film in my fridge!! i have about 50 rolls of 35mm in my fridge and 15 packs of polaroid film. :)

Last 8 packs
here's the proof

2) What non-book items are on your bookshelves?

this might be cheating but i have a "multi-purpose" shelf. it's cubicle style and some cubes have books and other cubes have everything under the sun! one extreme example is i have a cube for scrub tops and another for scrub bottoms next to my stephen king cube. to the left of that is my socks cube and to the right of that is my dvd cube.
i have a second shelf with books on it and half of it is shoes. *singing* i adore being a girl*



3) What song or album in your music collection doesn’t fit in with your usual tastes?
believe it or not, this HxC rock girl has a history of hawaiian music. my favorites are kalapana and country comfort. and hapa. and olomana. and one of my all time favorite songs is "Blue Bayou" but the first time i heard it was actually a cover by sistah robi. and of course pure heart is so full of talent and magic... actually, i probably know hawaiian music as much as any other genre. :)

4) What item in your wardrobe really doesn’t match anything else?
i'd like to think everything in my wardrobe can be rearranged and worn together but it's a little harder to match my loli dresses with "normal" clothes...

06/07/08- Loliday
can i wear this with rubber slippahs and jeans? a back pack? yeah, didn't think so.

5) What scar on your body did you receive in the unlikeliest of ways?
unlikely scars? no, nothing i received in an unusual way, just the regular skateboard accident scars hip, knee, elbow.

ignore the bandaids
from the first super saturday, note the bandaids. see knee brace in above (super saturday 2) pic.


this is the two week old picture- scarred over but not bleeding anymore. obey gravity, it's the law!

i don't know if this counts but even after not playing the clarinet for five years, my thumb still has a callus and is hyper extended.


it bends forward AND backwards! on both hands! for some reason this amuses my boyfriend to no end.

and now my song dedication~
today's friday5 common thread is "one of these things is not like the other things..." but that is not really the first thing that came to mind. i was thinking of the lyrics:

you don't sink like a stone
like all the other ones...



been looped on my ipod for the last week...


ok, off to the lab,
ciao and happy aloha friday!

INSTANT TIME MACHINE!
