some stools are circles, and some are squares, but this one is made of pi. it's easier to sit on than 3.14159.

"beep beep beep." snooze. ten minutes later "beep beep beep." snooze. another ten minutes go by. just can't bring yourself to get out of bed? well all you need is clocky. this alarm clock rolls away and hides when you hit snooze. it might just drive you crazy enough to get up.

happy chinese new year!

sweep your floors, clean your house and get ready to pig out in the new year. firecrackers explode, red envelopes abound and friends and family gather to celebrate. wear new red clothes to ward off evil spirits and bad luck. hope this little piggie brings you lots of good fortune and a great year. oink, oink.

it's snowing polka dot socks!

brrrr, the snowflakes fall onto my nose as i'm building my hello kitty snowman. as cute as kitty is, i can't wait to go inside to soothe my cold feet and put on some soft, fuzzy warm socks (a vast contrast to tight boarding boots) and toast myself in front of the log fire. wouldn't it be nice if it were snowing polka dot socks!

this is not a post

walk on puffy white clouds. look up to the sky to gaze at a busy freeway. time will be transfixed when you step into the baldessari's installation of the magritte exhibit at lacma. everything is not what it seems. if you opt for the audio tour, let pierce brosnan's dreamy voice sweep you away *sigh*.

balsamic vinegar, pasilla chili and ginger ganache - ingredients in your appetizers and entree? nope, these are some of the ingredients that are showcased in chuao's chocolates (pronounced chew-wow). and wow they are. strawberry caramel with balsamic vinegar may sound unusual, but the flavors deliciously marry together and dance upon your tongue.

functional drinks

in need of some afternoon recharge, i came across this function 'brainiac' drink at famima. carambola, aka star fruit, gave this drink a slightly different punch while a cornucopia of biomedical compounds (phosphotidyl serine anyone?) titrated the juice with an unusual 'flavor'. this just might be your cure for dys-'function'.
