Ode to a Creme Egg

Man, I LOVE Cadbury Creme Eggs. I love them so much, I suddenly feel the need to write a haiku to express my love to the chocolate-y bundle of deliciousness I just devoured.

Thy insides be cream,
Thy coating be chocolate,
Thou art delicious.

Look at that, my haiku even sounds Shakespeare-y 😉 Amazing how something like good food can bring out the best poetry in people.
I wanna write a haiku in Japanese. Or Korean.

Speaking of Japanese food… I really want mochi. NOW. I can’t wait another 2 weeks until New York. Wonder if those restaurants in the northern part of the city have mochi… Don’t really wanna walk for a half hour to Minamoto’s to get 6 bits of mochi XD… or do I? O.o


[MUSIC] The voices in my head won’t shut up

Earworm (eer-wurm): noun – a song that has some ridiculous catchy tune that somehow stays stuck in your head for more than 24 hours.

I thought starting off this post with that definition would be kind of appropriate, since in the last 7 days there have been a few songs that I absolutely cannot get out of my head and feel like sharing with the world. Maybe I should turn this into a weekly “What I’ve been listening to” thing for the heck of it. Anyways, the top earworms of my week and why:

1) Try to Follow Me (2NE1): there’s something about the blatant synthesizing of the chorus’ vocals and that backing synth track that I just can’t chase out of my head.

2) Abracadabra (Brown-Eyed Girls): so… repetitive… so… simple… yet so catchy *.*

3) Stand Up People (CSJH The Grace): God, these women have freaking awesome, powerful vocals. The chorus of this song really is unforgettable, even if I can’t understand a word of it.

4) BANG! (After School): I’m not really sure if this song is incredibly catchy or incredibly annoying… or annoyingly catchingly incredible. The rap’s pretty dang awesome too.

5) Won’t Be Long (EXILE): I actually hadn’t ever heard of EXILE until after reading another blog, but the energy radiating from this song and group is so addicting 😀

6) Love Yourself (KAT-TUN): Heard this sometime in late February and thought it was just the cutest thing ever… opinion still hasn’t changed 😉

7) Mirotic (DBSK): It took a while for this to grow on me… now I can’t go 24 hours without listening to it XD

Weeeell, that’s my little spiel for the day, expect more to come if I don’t feel lazy.

*EDIT* Haha, there is more 😉

8) U (Super Junior): I dunno. Something about the acoustic guitar coupled with the other synth stuff sounds kinda funky.

First first post!

Welcome to the not-exactly-official new and (possibly) improved Jess’ Blog! I’ve decided since the art thing didn’t work out, I’m just gonna write and post random stuff when I feel like it. Much more flexible and I don’t have to care if anyone reads it or not XD

I might as well start with a rant on nachos, which I happen to be eating right now.

Who was the crazy guy who invented nachos, anyways? What exactly prompted him to take chips and coat them with cheese? Who invented cheese? You know what I really can’t stand? Processed cheese. That stuff is friggin’ ridiculous, I don’t really get why people even bother eating that disgusting stuff. I mean, let’s think about this for a second here:

  1. It tastes disgusting.
  2. The texture is pretty disgusting too.
  3. Some of it can’t even be labeled as “cheese” (I sound like some kind of cheese puritan XD)
  4. Did I forget to mention it’s gross?

I have a little experience with processed cheese. You know how they always put processed cheese on cheeseburgers in fast food restaurants? Well, one day roughly 4 years ago, I ordered a junior bacon cheeseburger from Wendy’s (since I loathe McD’s with every fiber of my being). I opened it up and took the bun off because I always give the tomatoes to my mom, right? Well, when I looked under my bun, I wasn’t greeted with anything that looked like cheese.

This is a description of the pathetic excuse for my second-favourite animal by-product gone wrong: stuck to the inside of the bun was an orange-yellow substance with the consistency of ketchup and the taste of processed cheese. Stuck to the patty was a layer of tasteless, orange-yellow plastic.

Unfortunately that was picked up via drive-thru and I didn’t find out about my, er, “cheese food” until after we got home, so I scraped the stuff off my burger and ate it. I think it was an okay burger, I don’t really remember because all fake (that’s what I call “fast”) food tastes the same to me. Though I really do prefer good, old-fashioned, hand-made patties made with real ground beef cooked on a real barbecue.

Well, that’s my tangent for the day, going from what I thought would be nachos, to cheese and hamburgers 😛 I’ll probably write another rant sometime tonight so I won’t say goodbye yet 😉
