So today on The Chew, they showed photos on the the latest craze in Japan. Sushi Cats! Japanese really do love their cats, and it seems as if their cats are pretty well behaved. After looking at some photos online, now I really wish I had a cat.
It’s Thursday. Time for some cuteness I say!
The wind never seems to go away. My allergies were super bad this past weekend, and I did not feel too good at all. I need to workout more so that I can fight off the pollen. Yes, sneezing all day is definitely no fun at all.
I just started to watch a new show on BBC called “Orphan Black.” My dad told me about this show awhile back, but I wasn’t really paying attention at the time. But, now that many shows are coming to an end till the fall, there really is not much to watch on tv. I am thankful that it is baseball season, because otherwise I’d be totally bored in the evenings. Other than baseball though, I do enjoy watching tv after dinner. Warehouse 13 is back on, which is great. And I am also enjoying watching Doctor Who. Orphan Black is kind of a dark show, with a lot going on. After I watched the first episode, my mind was pretty much blown away. Many tv shows are light, and you can just plop yourself in front of the tube, and just relax and pass out. And then there are the shows that keep you wide awake, and wanting more. Orphan Black is definitely one of those shows. Okay, I’ve only watched 2 episodes so far, but I got to admit that I am already hooked. The idea of clones always seems to fascinate me somehow, and also shows that have mystery and intrigue are always interesting too. I am excited to see where this show goes, and to see what happens to the main character. BBC has some good shows, and it’s too bad that most of them are hard to watch for free.
Well, the A’s won yesterday. A.J. Griffin did an awesome job last night, and only allowed the Rangers to score one run. I hope Cespedes is okay, because supposedly he left the game last night because of a stomach illness. After he hit that home run last night, he did look rather pale. My man Norris is doing pretty good, and it’s nice to see him in the line up. It really is too early in the season to count the A’s out, and I think they still have a shot at winning their division.
I rarely played games on my iPhone, but now that I have an Android phone, I am constantly wanting to dl new games. Lately, I have been playing Grumpy Bears, and find the game quite cute and addictive at the same time. The game is free, and there aren’t too many pop-up ads in between levels which is nice. I am impressed with the graphics, and the game is also very responsive to the touch screen. You don’t have to spend any money to power up really, instead you can buy more weapons, but just using the money you earn by crushing bears. There are so many weapon options which I love, and you can also buy items to protect your life as well. This game does not require a whole lot of skill, and it is just plain fun. Of course just like any other game, it can suck up your battery life, so that is something to be aware of.
Well the SF Giants are in Arizona for a few days, and I am hoping that they get a win this week. I still can’t believe that we got sweeped by the Padres. Although, I have to admit that the Padres have been playing pretty good lately. That one catch yesterday was just amazing, and I gotta give the guy props for that. I know that it is still early in the season, and too early to worry about which teams are hot and which teams are not. But still, it would be nice to get a win once in awhile. Add oil guys!
The weather has been quite lovely here in the Bay Area, and I am enjoying not having to bundle up during the day. Everything good always comes to an end, so I guess I better enjoy it while it lasts.
This past weekend we performed at the SF Japantown Cherry Blossom Festival. Supposedly it was our best performance ever. We got a lot of positive comments, and were surprised by the responses. To me, the demo was just like any other performance. It was pretty windy on stage though, so windy in fact, that my sword almost flew out of my hand. But, everyone said I looked really relaxed on stage, and was fluid and graceful. Who would have thought? The whole team did a good job performing, and it was nice to see Ben again.
Man this wind is really killing my allergies. I don’t know where all this wind is coming from? The wind just seems to blow everything right into my nose. I never knew that spring in SF could get this bad. When I was living in Beijing, the Spring would always be like this. In Beijing, you would just walk down the block and get a bunch of sand in your mouth, or eye. Hopefully this wind won’t stick around too long, and by next month it will be less windy.
Well the day has finally come, ha my yes, my cellphone plan is about up. So I can either upgrade and get myself an iPhone 5, or be daring, and switch to an Android phone. My dad and friends seem to like their Android phones, but none of them are Mac users. I am just worried that I won’t be able to sync my phone with my computer. But, after reading some articles online, it should be do-able. I am just so used to using Mac products, that changing to an Android may turn out to be difficult. The iPhone is just so easy to use, that even my mom can use it with her eyes closed. So yeah I can’t decide on what I want to do, I guess I will think about it some more. The HTC One is looking pretty good to me though, and I like the aluminum body, and the big screen. Decisions, decisions.
Is sensationalism in the news media a bad thing? I feel like the US really likes to take advantage of this, and just makes things more dramatic than they need to be .
This damp and windy weather ain’t so fun. I was walking home from yoga last night, and managed to burn up a sweat. I must be pretty out of shape.
Last night, my yoga teacher told me that I should think about practicing yoga more often. I guess I am going to have to think about other options, and figure out if I want to try out a new class or not.
My feet are still awkward and weird when I do my upward dog, and I am not sure why. I think my ankles are either too flexible, or I am doing something wrong.
I just finished watching the A’s beat the Mariners. Woop, the game today was an exciting one. The one guy I think to watch out for is Michael Morse. He hit like a homerun in every game, and is a big and powerful dude. I always get super nervous, when the batter keeps fouling the ball out over and over. But, today Josh Reddick used the power of his beard, and really is starting to grow as a player. Ha, I guess the beard is not going to go out of style anytime soon. Ryan Cook closed the game nice and strong, and definitely had something to prove out there. He was throwing those balls fast today. The A’s are definitely going to be fun to watch this season, and their bullpen is definitely one of the better ones.
I must be allergic to my house, because my nose is super itchy right now, and has been for days. All I got to say is that it is quite annoying. I feel like a rabbit, with a twitchy nose right now.
The other day my mom and I went to Sweet Maple for Brunch. I am not a big fan of breakfast food, but I do enjoy brunch, if that makes any sense at all. Supposedly, many of my friends have eaten at Sweet Maple and enjoyed it, so we decided to see what all the fuss was about. We didn’t have to wait to long to be seated, and our food came pretty fast. My mom tried the Black Asparagus Benedict with the famous “Millionaire’s Bacon”, and I had the Marnier French Toast with eggs, and sausage. Man, all I can say is that bacon was really to die for. I could have eaten a whole plate of that bacon. The Frech toast was not too bad either, but I don’t think I would order it again.
Our seats at Sweet Maple were situated near these two guys, who came in a little bit after us, and they were quite the eavesdroppers. I guess they were surprised that two asian women would be discussing baseball, and that we knew about other teams besides the SF GIANTS. My mom caught one guy turning around a couple of times, so she decided to smile at him. I did not really pay attention to them, but I have to admit that I was also secretly eavesdropping. haha, I didn’t mean to, but I couldn’t help myself really. Anyhow, it turned out that they too were talking about sports, and discussing Fantasy Baseball. I guess it turns out that I too, have quite the cabbage ears.
Well April is just about here, which means that Baseball season is about to start. Yes, Opening Day is just hours away. I hope to be able to make it out to AT&T Park this year. Which reminds me, that I need to get myself a Pagan t-shirt soon. Can’t wait to see him and Pence show everyone what’s up.
This past weekend, I realized just how short life can be. We need to get off our couches, and live life.
I have just started a new writing gig, and am now a Contributing writer for http://sickoftheradio.com/. Check out the site when you have time.
If you haven’t seen the History of Rap before, you should definitely go you Youtube and check it out. Great stuff. Justin Timberlake, and Jimmy Fallon are hilarious together, and so damn talented. As I was watching the video, I found myself singing along as well. Most of the songs they sang were songs that I grew up listening to on the radio. A bunch of the songs I even danced to back in the days, when I was in middle school. Oh man.
Well the WBC is just about over, and tonight one team will walk away with a trophy. I have been rooting for Team Puerto Rico this whole time, not just because I am a big fan of Angel Pagan, but also because they have been exciting to watch. Team Japan was also super exciting to watch, and they put up a good fight til the end. I was actually surprised how hard they could whack that ball. I know the DR is undefeated, but I am still hoping that PR will walk away with the final win!
