Posted in Uncategorized by Jessica on December 31, 2009

I’m think about switching my blog back to blogspot.com again… hmmm.

I’m bored with the wordpress layouts and blogspot has better features, I believe.
Not that this is a life slash death situation, but I need to fancy up my blog.

Or maybe I’ll check out tumblr.

I love how this is a priority of mine. But whatev, I love writing and I love sharing my likes/dislikes with people, whether they agree with me, or not.

Yezzir.

where’s the african guy? bring me the african guy!

“Motherfucking cock sucker motherfucking shit fucker, what am I doing? What am I doing? I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m doing the best that I can. I know that’s all I can ask of myself. Is that good enough? Is my work doing any good? Is anyone paying attention? Is it hopeless to try and change things? The african guy is a sign, right? Because if he isn’t, than nothing in this world makes any sense to me. I’m fucked. Maybe I should just quit. Don’t quit! Maybe I should just fucking quit. Don’t fucking quit! I’m fucked. I don’t know what the fuck to fucking do anymore. Fucker. Fuck, shit!”

I highly suggest seeing this movie, if you haven't already. It has a great message. I'm mega into existentialism, and that's what this movie is all about. If you don't get existentialism, you probably won't get much of this movie. It is very humorous though, regardless. Peep peep!

Christmas was amazing, but insanely stressful this year.
I’ll post more about it when I have the time.

For now, I leave you with me and some of my ridiculous best friends, singing to “Say It Ain’t So” by Weezer!

Bubbles!!!!!

Posted in do work, Funsies, love, Recipe, sharebear, wantwantwant, yumyumz by Jessica on December 23, 2009

I’ve been craving bubble tea like a muhfucka lately! Haven’t had it in like a year and it’s killing me. Taro, preferably. Need to pay a visit to Aki asaps. I wish I was still living in Brooklyn/Manhatt so I can go to St.’s Alp Teahouse every day of my life!

Found a recipe, and I think I’m going to attempt this soon!

Bubble Tea Recipe:

2.2 lbs bubble tea powder (approximately 45-50 (16oz.) bubble teas)

Taro bubble tea is also a top seller worldwide. Taro is a root similar to sweet potato. The purple color makes it a favorite “pretty” drink, but a “tasty” creamy drink with a hint of taro flavoring.

Preparation (16oz serving):
(Scoop is provided FREE of charge with purchase of this powder – $1.99 value)

16oz Bubble Tea Flavored Powder Drink
———————————
1 Scoop Bubble Tea Flavored Powder
1 Scoop Non-Dairy Powder or Refined Creamer powder
1 Scoop Sweetener (sugar syrup, fructose, Hawaiian cane sugar or sugar)
3/4 cup water
1 cup ice
2 fl. oz. of cooked Bubble Tea Tapioca Pearls

1) Put all ingredients except tapioca into shaker and shake it up.
2) Make sure that the flavored powder and creamer is mixed well.
3) Add bubble tea tapioca pearls to a cup, and pour your drink over.
4) Put in your big fat bubble tea straw and enjoy.

*Add more flavored powder and creamer for thicker drink.

16oz Ice-Blended Fresh Fruit Drink
———————————
1 Scoop Bubble Tea Flavored Powder
1 Scoop Non-Dairy Powder or Refined Creamer powder
1 Scoop Sweetener (sugar syrup, fructose, Hawaiian cane sugar or sugar)
1/2 cup fresh fruit
1/4 cup crushed ice
2 fl. oz. of cooked Bubble Tea Tapioca Pearls

1) Put bubble tea flavored powder, creamer, sweetener and fresh fruit into the blender for 20 seconds or until blended well.
2) Blend the drink less if you like little pieces of fruit.
3) Add tapioca pearls to a cup, and pour your drink over.
4) Put in your big fat bubble tea straw and enjoy.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR ORDER (and save)

Options:
1) Powder Only
2) Add 6.6lb bag of Award-Winning Tapioca Pearls and a pack of 45-50 Fat Bubble Tea Straws
3) Add 6.6lb bag of Award-Winning Tapioca Pearls
4) Add a pack of 45-50 Fat Bubble Tea Straws

Sharebear: Yuksek!

Totally in love with this dude, Yuksek.
I might be a little late on this, but whatevs.
Haling from Reims, France, Yuksek has crafted some dirty ass remixes of songs og by Mika, The Kaiser Chefs, and Ghostface Killah. His new album, “Away From the Sea” features the love of my life, Amanda Blank, on the track “Extra Ball”. His other tracks are equally wonderful, and totally dance worthy!
CHECK HIM OUT!

below is the link to the actual video, since i cant find any sites to embed it in here. 😦
