i always get the urge to blog when my mind has time to wander. this means around 01:30 or 02:30 in the morning when i am at work with no internet, usually waiting for my QC to come in. by the time i am home i am too lazy to write up what i was thinking the night before, ha!

my point here, i had A REALLY DELICIOUS PIECE OF TIRAMISU a few days ago and i can't wait to tell everyone about it! i've just been too tired or busy to put words to paper. :)

i went to The Fat Greek (againnnnn!!!!) in Waialae with @yummiestars, making use of a hot hawaii deals coupon. after our usual gyros we had some credit left to spare so we got tiramisu. i had no idea this restaurant had such a heavenly, esspresso drenched delight; the menu has only two dessert listings: baklava (also yummy) and "house special". we got the house special which turned out to be tiramisu. the sponge cake was saturated with caffeinated goodness and the egg/marscapone part was ever so light. and there was a crust of cinnamon on top of that.

i guess i should talk about the gyros (tzatziki! grilled meat!) and salad (kalamata olives! feta cheese!) but i'm sure you MUST know of this already ;) . as for the falafel, i always say i will try it the next time i go but the lamb always grabs me at the last minute! why change [from] a good thing?

these pics are from the previous time we ate there. this looks so tasty right now it hurts to look at. i want to make this my desktop background but then i'd be hungry all the time!

as for their ala moana kiosk... you don't get a salad with the gyro although i think it's the same price. i suppose this is to facilitate eating while shopping. the meat is still tasty, which is good, and it's sliced off a large loaf that is on a spit. this is good- it's very moist meat, but it doesn't have that same "grilled" [charred] flavor that i like (did i mention i love to eat burnt food?). also, the poor kiosk looks quite tiny and disorganized... the microbiologist in me is a little skeptical... but i try not to think about it.

must return soon!! i love greek food!


my latest obsession: Shimmering Stars

this song is perfect, i could listen to it forever...

my newest photos:



behind glass


this song has such a great hook, it reminds me of Pulp. i catch myself humming this all the time.

this is the first song i heard by the bravery. video is so awesome!! this song reminds me of stellastarr* or the killers + franz ferdinand? maybe it's because killers and ff both had albums that came out at the time?

they have another cool video involving PLAYING CARDS ♡ but i don't like the song as much. you can youtube it if it does ya. {lol, did i just use a phrase from calla bryn sturgis... :P just got finished reading dt5,heh.}

last night i had a dream that i was swimming in the ocean (it was day time in my dream, at least) and i fell asleep! how weird is that, dreaming that you fell asleep?! and it was just like a real-life dozing off i just remember a "blackness" like i had a dream and forgot it when i "woke up". anyway, i awoke to find myself being pushed to shore by a small wave (current wasn't strong, just choppy- like at makapu'u... but it wasn't makapu'u looked more like lanikai because i could see some beach-front houses on higher ground behind me). so in my dream i "woke up" from the waves and my dad was also there. he might have fallen asleep too. he told me "good thing we didn't drown when we fell asleep but we did drift away from where we started." i think there were other people swimming there two and it's amazing that we didn't drift into them while sleeping, on account of the waves. i was also surprised we didn't drift into some rocks. i decided to swim to shore but i found that we were only in a few inches of water- we got washed on shore! my suit was full of sand and i wanted to go back to sleep... and then i woke up in real life. rats! only slept for four hours. :(


today i was watching Family Feud.
I usually play along on my couch (who doesn't play along to tv game shows from home?) just saying the first thing that comes to mind.
The question was: what's a bad place for a first date?

ready? got an answer in your head?

well, the first thing i blurted out was: THE FOREST


apparently the top survey answer was strip club.

but really, why wouldn't you pick forest?! all the bad stuff starts from there- zombies, vampires, warewolves, serial killers, rapists, infections/parasites, flat tire/car problems, no phone reception, no one to hear you scream...

any way, i felt kind of dumb after i saw all the top answers (bar, boxing match, etc.) and i guess it makes more sense.

sometimes i wonder about my own sanity...
