3 Things Thursday

Last nights dinner:

I hovered over the Asparagus stand for (I kid you not), 15 minutes admiring the different colored stalks of one of me and baby brother’s favorite veggie.

Did you know that Green Asparagus is considered to be the “healthiest?”

Multiple stares later, I finally decided on the sweeter, purple variety.

and 2 days ago, I received an email asking me why I was so happy all the time.  S/he has obviously never read some of my other entries.  Life isn’t easy.  Anyone who claims it’s easy is probably lying.  You’ve just gotta keep pushing forward!  The alternative is to remain stagnant and then, where would you be?  No where, that’s where.  Sometimes, it’s very easy to forget that you are loved.  You’re loved more than you know.  I for one, love you.  I really, really do.  Chicken-soup and extra sharp cheesiness aside, I mean it!  For the record, I am not happy 24/7, nor am I perfect (like ever, ever, ever).  Some research studies have indicated that social media outlets like Facebook have been linked to impacting depression.  Maybe, maybe not but what it certainly does is present a very skewed tale comprised of happy smiles and pleasant, uninterrupted lives dotted with the perfect girlfriend, car, etc.  Nobody is posting images of the tiny mountain of tissues that blotted your river of tears not 2 hours before, littering the corner of their room or sharing their most embarrassing moment of the day (maybe).  Today, mine was dropping my purse and its entire contents at the coffee shop this morning.  Lip gloss, phone, tampons, and all and then, to make matters worse, I accidentally mooned everyone when I bent down to clumsily grab for things (I curse you dryer for shrinking my clothes and not fitting correctly until mid afternoon when I’ve finally worn them in)!  :/  …but you roll with the punches and hopefully, it’s mini episodes like that to contribute to your most entertaining  memoir later on in life ;)

Soup & Cheese…

    I was a bit mortified but laughed at myself later. Anyways, an iced chai always makes things better

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    No one has told me that all day, thank you!

  • Charles says:

    “accidentally mooned everyone”… lol

    Consider yourself lucky you’re a female. I bet if I ended up accidentally mooning everyone I’d have a cop chasing me down the road

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    Next time, I’m just gonna own it, lol. I’ll act as if I meant to do whatever klutzy thing I’m sure to do next, that way people will think I’m just being comical and then, everyone will come to know me as that crazy but HILARIOUS girl

  • Bonnie says:

    I have accidentally flashed someone but never mooned anybody. I’m sure it is only a matter of time.

    It’s all good. We’ll be able to build our very own “klutz society” very soon. We’ll be special bc we tell ourselves so

  • Nami | Just One Cookbook says:

    Wait, is that sushi deep fried? Looks like panko around it… looks delicious.

    The reader has very interesting question… honestly, you can never tell what it’s like by just reading a blog and why he/she assume you are that way… Well, but at least it shows how cheerful you are and you give good impressions to others. Better than being said “why you are always (negative comment)?”

  • Joanne @ Fifteen Spatulas says:

    YUM! Is that kimbap or sushi? LOL. Either way, I want some!

  • Lester says:

    You are quite a Lady Angie! Have a great day tomorrow.

  • Jen @ Savory Simple says:

    I had no idea green asparagus was healthier!

  • Always Maylee says:

    That sushi looks yummy. Yesterday I was wearing a skirt and was walking into a takeout restaurant. A giant gust of wind came and I’m pretty sure I flashed everyone. I probably won’t see any of those people ever again so I just laughed it off!

    xo, Yi-chia

  • Honey What's Cooking says:

  • Sissi says:

    This asparagus looks amazing! I love asparagus, have seen different colours including very light violet, but such dark purple never!
    What a wonderful dinner! The second photo looks very intriguing…
