it's not easy being cheesy..

cheese club, party of two (SVu KTong action, looking to conquer and expand). 
amateur cheese lovers! Favs so far this year..

Comté


Morbier

Humboldt Fog

Époisses de Bourgogn

Blue Stilton

and.. Manchego
From Trader Joe's, Cheesestore of Silverlake, Whole Foods in Irvine, and Venissimo, Del Mar. 

PS. Can I just say that Venissimo is pro?  Not only do they add you to the database, but they give you a receipt of the cheeses you selected and provide you a list of compatible delectables, such as different fruits, nuts, honey's, and flavors!! AND since its a database, the next time you come around, the information is already stored so you can see what you've tried and formulate a palette of your liking to select the next sampling of cheeses for future purchases. Can't wait to try the one in LB!

Heart!! <3, <3, <3!

We Did It!!!

So excited! First Half-Marathon! And achieved my goal time within 2 seconds!!!

Kat also posted before/after pictures from her phone:

From Left to Right (Ryan aka Jackie Nguyen, me, Kat, Mike Baker, and Matt)


 Getting mimosas at the Broken Yolk! Mike is apparently still running like the Flash. Jackie hurt her shins so she couldn't run this time but she came out to support because she is a super duper awesome friend! Pictures are kind of premature because the half-marathon photo people are posting more but I'm super stoked and excited to share!!! :D Hurray!!!

*edit* and here are the "negatives" from the site!

An SCCO doc hollered "Go SCCO!" and whizzed past me and Mike at one point. kewwwwl!  :)
My legs are still a little jelly but I kinda like it!

Angus and Julia Stone - "Big Jet Plane"



have you ever had one of those moments when you just wish you knew what a certain song is and you only knew a snippet of the lyrics? albert taught me how to find the song back at ucsd, which is pretty simple and pretty genius: putting that part in google in quotes and typing the word lyrics after it. sorry if that seems obvious to you but seriously, it was a quite a revelation at the time for me- pops up instantly! i was so impressed cause i was feeling nostalgic over some spanish songs and i barely knew the words, let alone the language in general. i typed in "ven amor" or "entre tu y yo" and found the songs.. after some sifting of course but the point is that i have them now. AMAZING! i rebuilt my buleria collection haha. anyway, this is how i found this big jet plane song cause i typed in "want to ride you on a picture plane" quotes. hurray!

Populous - Canoe Canoa



your productivity is supposed to increase when you listen to music greater than 60bpm, preferably without lyrics or lyrics you don't know (lifehacker.com). too bad this one caught my ears and i had to share :)

Germany Exclusive Access

I only recently became a huge fan of mineral sparkling water because my cousin Sandra introduced it to me and my brother while we were in Europe this summer. And I was definitely anti-sparkling water at first. How can anything carbonated NOT be sugar infused??  Then we kind of dying of thirst in the heat of traveling around... and my brother and I got hooked. 

I bought a 12 pack of 1 L Trader Joe sparkling water at first, because it was non-committal. And bought little bottles to drink in class. Then it became a treat every now and then... and then today happened. Today marks the day I tried Gerolsteiner Sparkling Natural Mineral Water. The bubbles felt smaller, the drink more smooth and oh so satisfying. I never knew a water like this before... HOW? HOW did you do it GERMANY? And how could you deny the US of this brilliant brilliant idea:

 

GEROLSTEINER WATER COOLER.

Dispensable at your finger tips?? Please reconsider and have it available to us.

Finals = New Music Time!

Since its finals time, a lot of energy gets focused on getting the right ambient uplifting music to get through those long hours (and by long hours, I mean long hours of procrastination). At least during reading week for "lighter" studying. Here are some newer albums I've added on my playlist:




Charlotte Gainsbourg, "IRM"



Yeasayer, "Old Blood" I'm really digging "Rome" and "One"



Massive Attack, "Heligoland" ENTIRE ALBUM.




Animal Collective, "Fall Be Kind" EP (Dec, 2009)




Yo La Tengo, "Popular Songs" (kinda older I know but I have trouble keeping up)


SISU "Demon Tapes EP" ;)

Yay yay! Keeping adding more as the night goes on.  And I'm really excited for the new Gorillaz too :) Sunday Coachella... where are you single day tickets?
