It's Fryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyday (say it with empahsis! Fryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy....) I question myself why there are no new tour diary photos posted? I can't seem to answer. Or why Jade doesn't post on his bloggy anymore...these strange mysteries...Spring semester is almost done and summer session is gonna be starting soon (booooooo!). I'm going to be taking math and sociology. What fun. Life is blah as ever. It's getting super close to figuring out what I want to do in the future. I'm scared. My dad is ushering my mum to research about universities that have a good pharmasutical degree thingy. I'm currently researching which culinary schools are vegan or have vegan classes. There's one in Oregan that's strictly vegan. That is so fucking awesome!!!

By the way, peoples...

Here's some vine charcoal and sanguine drawings for art...they're not fabulous, I'm just happy they're done!

I've been posting my PETA2 posters all over the campus. Yet there are these mofos who seem to enjoy the fact that they can take them down. Freaking carnivores...

My mummy made a fantastic bean salad on sunday.

I got a new beautiful old one kind of died. This one sucks major buttttt...going to go look for a new one.

Lasered my underarms (you know, laser hair removal) on saturday. Yes, it hurt...occasionally. It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. At times it felt as thought someones was slicing me with a razor blade.

I'm gonna redo my room (finally!) I'm going to point my bed frame black (currently gold), get a black and white bed set, and put Andy Warhol art all over my room. E-X-C-I-T-I-N-G! I would love to paint my walls red, but my dad would definitely kill me. I guess plain white it is then.

You people!!! I want to go to Weenie Roast soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo bad!!! Have you heard the line up?! Tiger Army, Silver sun Pickups, The Killers, Bad Religion, Social D, and Tim Armstrong in the same house!

I was curious to see if I remembered any of those stupid nursery rhymes and the only ones I recalled were Jack & Jill and Mary had a little lamb. Found my old nursery rhyme book and HO-LEE CRAP! It's wither dirty nasty or horror gruesome poems. Here's one:
Ding, Dong bell,
Pussy's in the well!
Who put her in?
Little Tommy Lin.
Who pulled her out?
What a naughty boy
was that
To drown thepoor,
poor pussy-cat
Who never did him
any harm,
But killed the mice
in his father's barn.

What the hell was that? How about this one?...
Goosey, goosey, gander,
who stands yonder?
Little Betsey baker;
Take her up, and shake her.
Goosey, goosey, gander,
Where shall I wander?
Upstairs, downstairs,
And in my Lady's chamber.
There I met an old man
That would not say his prayers
I took him by the left leg,
And threw him downstairs.

What do they teach these kids? This one teaches that they can wear rabbits...
Bye, Baby Bunting
Daddy's gone a hunting
To get a little
Rabbit skin
To wrap a baby
bunting in.

What mofo's thought of these? I beg to differ with those who think that these stupid poems are cute.

I'm happy to announce that I have started mmy exercise regime, again! It's been FIVE WHOLE MONTHS! eww. Being fat makes me depressed...ok chubby not fat...but still. Why do vegan muffins have to be so damned good?! I get up at five AM and exercise till seven. So it's a reasonable amount of time. I can't wait to lose my unnecessary bulges that I somehow picked up.

Went to the dentist yesterday (I absolutely despise dentists) because my wisdom teeth are growing. The left bottom one is giving me such hell. So...she checked them and said that she needs to remove all four because each one of them has an infection...especially the bottome left one. It (the infection) swelled up my gums, so the whole time that I've been chewing, I've been chewing on my gums. I see my life crumbling right before my eyes. Dude, I have to survive on freaking pureed shit for like...a week. What have I done to deserve this? I have my surgery tomorrow...she's going to remove the swelled gums and the stupid "wisdom" teeth. What's so wise about them? They're only wise in being a bitch.

I made blueberry corn muffins on tuesday. My fwend came over that day and helped me shred carrots for my carrot raisin muffins that I ended up baking yesterday (you can see her bunny ear fingers below...the first two are the blueberry corn muffins and the last one is the carrot raisin).

I made Mango Ginger Kiwi tofu yesterday as well. Have you ever accidently have red chili pepper seeds fly up your nose? Why, you ask? Because on Wednesday (when making the marinade) I opened the bottle of pepper seeds and woo! It felt like my nose was bleeding a river. No, blood, just a lot of burning! I didn't have some of the ingredients to make Isa's mango ginger tofu, so I added and replaced. Ya. Came out yummy mummy! Here's the recipe (my version...with much of Isa's help!...If you want Isa's way I highly suggest you to buy Vegan With A Vengeance).

2 teaspoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic
1/2 tablespoon fresh ginger, coarsly chopped
1 1/2 teaspoon red chili pepper seeds
2 large mangoes, peeled and coarsley chopped
4 kiwis, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoon rice vinegar
Juice of 1 lemon
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/4 teaspoon gound allspice
1 teaspoon ground ginger
Fresh black pepper to taste
Dash of salt

1 pound extra-firm tofu, drained and pressed (cut into isosceles shapes)
1 mango sliced into long sliced into long thin slices
3 kiwis sliced and placed on top for color and decor

Making the Marinade!
Preheat a medium-sized saucepan over moderate heat; combine the oil, garlic, fresh ginger, and chili pepper seeds, and saute for 7 min (careful not to burn the garlic!). Add the chopped mango & kiwi and saute for 5 more min.

Add the maple syrup and balsamic vinegar, cover and simmer for 35 min. Uncover and simmer for 5 more min.

Add the rice vinegar, lemon juice, orange juice, allspice, ground ginger, black pepper, and salt; let cool, then transfer the mixture to blender and puree until smooth.

Place the prepared tofu in the marinade in a tightly lid container. Marinate overnight.

Bake The Tofu!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees (F).

Reserve half of marinade. Lay marinated tofu in a single layer in a large rimmed baking sheet or baking pan. Bake for 20 min. Flip over the tofu and add more marinade. Coat the mango in the reserved marinade and them to the pan. Bake another 15 min.

Heat the remaining marinade in a saucepan and put in a bowl on the table so people can pour over tofu. Serve over coucous and top with kiwi.

I was baking while doing my MGK tofu and grew bored increasingly while waiting for I started taking random pictures...

Anywho...a fun fact for you lucky people...FUCK stands for...For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge. It came from early naval logs, when captains would punish crew members for sexual intercourse. Got that from River Phoenix's book.

The Month of the fabulous May!

The End.

Happy Belated Earth Day!

Good morning star shine, the earth says hello! Anywho, back in October 20, 2005…Indie played this clip…"I will not eat cat poop!”…Wow you’d never thought you’d hear that, huh? I found it so random, I wrote it down.

The End.
(for today)

Check out and please support them! (plus AFI is gonna be performing in one of the US concerts!)
Why, Hello! i've been uber lazy about posting my bloggy (that I typed up last Friday) below and placed it as a draft. I just needed to upload all the Vegas pictures. So much has happened since the last time I blogged.

The shooting at Virginia Tech has really disturbed me. Greatly. I think even more so to know that the guy was Korean. I think of all those families who have to hear that their son/daughter were killed. I'm sorry for them. My hart has sunk down so deep, I haven't been able to dig it out. This could have been prevented, on top of it I hope all those mother fuckers who taunted him about the way he talked, looked, and just everything about him, now feel the pain he felt. We live in such a cruel world. Why do we need to act like bitches to make other people feel like crap? Don't they see the pain that eventually adds up? He was mentally ill...sick..he needed help...and yet the authorities did nothing...32 people killed...33 including the shooter...29 many that could have been saved...change of subject....because I can go on for ten years with this...

It's getting to the point of reaching the decision of what I'm going to be doing for the rest of my life I'm geting super scared. What do I do? What am I going to study? Should I do what I love or what my dad wants me to be? I should be happy because it's my life, but won't be...because I'll be knowing that my dad isn't. I'm pulling out my hair with this!!!

My dad has finally accepted me as being vegan and actually being proud that I am. Shocker!!! It's because the doctor told him that I'm healthy and living a healthier lifestle than those who aren't vegetarian/vegan. Woo Hoo!

I 'm gonna start going to a psychologist. My choice. I haven't been able to cope with everything that's making my head spin. I'm looking forward to having a clear head, for once in my life. It will also cure these unexpected tears that just erupt when I talk to people. What the hell is up with me?

I've created ten new clothing designs on croquis. I would love for them to be sold. That would be so freaking awesome!!!

Bad Religion and Tiger Army are gonna be headlining the Warped Tour. Would be awesome if I could get tickets (with money that I need to obtain some how!)

Cochella is next weekend. There's like what? 500 bands in three days? Crazyness. I WANT TO GO!

My friend wants to take me to the Fall Out Boy Honda Civic Tour Concert (what a mouthful!) in June. I might be going to Vegas (oh no! not again!) who knows? I only think Pete Wentz is pretty and that's it. I can get extremely sick of them after one song. So...yes? No? Idon't know.

Icky Thump comes out June 19th! White Stripes, yo!

Found out my actual height...5'5'' exactly.

OK so go on and read my blah blah blahs....

Happy Friday The 13th!

The whole weekend I was working on my art & on Monday I was studying for my midterm (English)...the rest of the days I was just too lazy to blog. But, be happy that I'm blogging a bloggy now.

My Zune headphones got screwed up...have no idea how...the music sounds like it's in a tunnel with static. I think I'm gonna go cry. My love has broke. On the bright side, my Zune isn't broken.

Had a power outage on Monday morning.That was fun. I can say...HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY GERARD!!! Now he's 30 & 4 days old.

Check out Shiny Toy Guns' You Are The One. Yummy Song.

Did you hear that Robert Smith is working with Ashlee Simpson? What?! Now that's disturbing news!

Here's some pictures of what I was working on for art.

Oh, how I so miss my beloved headphones. They were so good to me...all those memories we shared sad. At the moment I'm using the headphones of my CD player. I'll either order new ones from the Zune website or go buy some other kind at Best Buy. I think I'll throw a funeral for them and bury it in the backyard.

Disturbia comes out today. You should go see it.

Aren't you excited for the upcoming albums?!
Nine Inch Nails

Tiger Army

The Smashing Pumpkins (Zeitgeist)

John Lennon Tribute (which Green Day will be on! By the way, Billie Joe, his family, & some of the Green Day team was in New Orleans helping out other families that were hit with hurricane katrina. Check out the pictures )


Linkin Park (I have to admit that their single is incredible)

Tim Armstrong (Into Action!)

Is it wrong to say that I'm fucking sick of The Red Hot Chili Peppers? I really am. Ican't hear another song from them.

Wanna see my beautiful college folders?!


Philosopy & Art!

Forgot to say that my mum has just recently became obsesssssssed with Miss Murder. Where has she been?
Ok, so here's my vegas musings (I knew you've been waiting for this momet to come!). I survived on vegan cookies (Alternative Baking Company Cookies) & muffins. It's basically what kept me alive during out trip (you should keep that in mind if you're going on a "family bonding" vacation & are vegan). Enjoy...

4:58 AM...It's the day of our departure and I'm actually awake. I woke up at 2:00 a.m. and I couldn't fall back to sleep. What is this? I am not a morning person. Maybe it's the fact that I get to eat all the yummy yummy vegan food I made for breakfast yesterday for today that I spent all day making (woo! so many "days" ha ha ha).

I have no make up on my face, so I must look like a monster that fell and hit it's fave in mud that was full of poop. The new Tiger Army song with Davey Havok is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. (Forever Fades Away)! I just need to get use to it playing it on KROQ. It's really weird to hear them on KROQ. KROQ?! Tiger Army?! Leaves a bad taste in your mouth, doesn't? I know they've had new songs up on their myspace for a while, but I haven't been on since...I think...last August, so I have no idea what the hell is happening in that world. I count on their website, wikipedia, and friends for updations. Poo. Allergies have started once more. Allergies should be made illegal! Aww...I haven't heard this song forever...My Name Is Trouble (Nightmare Of You). I really overplayed their CD, so I don't listen to it anymore. I had two muffins and two waffles...still hungry. Too early for this. Way too early. I'm actually writing this with the light of my cell phone because it's so freaking dark. I hate changing tiimes! It's supposed to be 4:13 in the morning, but the stupid Daylight crap makes it 5:13. Ha. My writing looks funny, it's all small, stick-like (asian, baby!), and wobbly. Ok, I'll write grumpyness is creeping up on me because my dad's playing his persian radio louder than the music I'm listening to. Grrr....

6:36 AM...I can see the light! The sun has risen and I'm happy happy happy.

8:10 AM...Zzyzx Road...Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha

(Can you believe that exists?!)

9:40 AM...Made it to Vegas and I drove rest of the way, so that meant listen to my music at my volume! Shopping time!

11:19 AM...Time to check into the hotel...I'm hungry. Wonder where we're going to eat? Chicken sounds fabbity fab! Ha ha ha. Ok, that was just plain nasty. MGM keeps lions behind glass walls. ANIMAL CRUELTY!!!! My mum didn't let me throw a riot because she was scared that I was going to be lead out by security. Man, this is going to be fun...Rainforest Cafe sells a necklace made of both leather and bones...What the hell is wrong with this world?! Want to protect the rain forest? Well, protect the freaking animals, you mother fuckers!!!

6:55 PM...Just finished Caesar's Palace,
Bally's, and Paris. Yes, my dear friends...I WENT TO PARIS!!!
Met some great kids there.
Saw Green Day's autographed guitars and drum thingy.
That made my day! Then a lady was like "Uh, sorry you can't take any pictures." Too bad, woman! Got some Led Zep, Queen, Lord Of The Rings, and Depp.
Go me! Now it's off to dinner. My dad gave me his words of wisdom (that I never seem to hear) "you should eat fish." Yeah let me eat a fishy that was once happy swimming in the ocean and then was captures, chopped up, and served to eat. Yeah, sure I'll have some. Don't get me started! By the way at Caesar's I got fabulous candy at FAO Shwartz.
Oh, found cute skinny jeans at Anthropologie. I love the dressing rooms (so earthy)


9:35 AM...I'm absolutely exhausted. I hate sleeping other places than my bed. I'm really fussy about that. Dinner was horrid. All I had was salad, green beans, and rice. Bleh. I WANT FOOD! Why don't they have a vegan restaurant anywhere? Forgot to mention...I won $101.40!!! My dad gave me $5 to play and ya...I played a penny slot. Much coolies to that. So have some money in my wallet now. My mum's gonna take me to Sephora so I can buy come Urban Decay & Hard Candy makeup. Las Vegas, I have concluded, is a very dirty place. I really don't like it. I think I found my love in the Whole Foods least they have vegan food!

1:00 PM...Finished the Bellagio and the Venecian.
Absolutely beautiful! In the elevator back to the parking lot, a guy standing next to me was reading a book...Wine Tasting For Dummies. Hahahahhahahahahahahahaha. Tried to take a picture of him, but he was walking way too fast. Jerk.
At the Bellagio they had this spiffy garden area..but they had butterflies behind glass windows and dead ones up for display. How do they capture butterflies and just let them die in a display?! ANIMAL CRUELTY!!! Much anger I possessed.
Where are we going now? Have no idea. Sephora was a blast!


1:13 PM...Dirty Mouth? Clean it up with Orbit gum!

4:22 PM...Much fun fun fun at the Rio! Got meself a necklace, saw a show, and the Chippendales (hahahahahahaha). A Fabio man was there. Oh I never laughed so hard. Time to go play the slots!

6:47 PM...Lost $20 and my dad lost $20 as well. Tear tear. best friend called me...put me on hold forever, so I hung up. No call back. Oh well. Going to New York New York, Excalibur, and the Luxor...then migrate over to Fremont...wee...

8:43 PM...My back hurts


8:22 AM...Good Morning (yes it is!)!!!! Day to head back home...finally! I got fat in two days. Disgusting. Yesterday was the premier of Sweet Sacrifice. You lucky bastards who saw it. Wonder if Jade updated his blog? I don't think there's any new tour diary photos because their next concert is not till next Saturday. It was pretty hard to go without a computer for three days (including today). Las Vegas has really changed since the last time I came, which was like 4 or 5 years ago. There's nothing spectacular here...just bright lights and small city. By the way I'm inlove with the new powder I bought at Sephora. It's called Sue Devitt. And it's written on the side "Against Animal Testing" Happy happy! Their website is Today we finished up Las Vegas by checking out the Coca Cola and M&M stores...then head home. On the way, we'll stop off at the outlets (yay!) and I can catch up on some english reading...midterm on tuesday. Great. I still need to draw a chair and four crosshatching sketches for art....all due on monday. Shiza!!!

8:38 AM...Try a Larabar. Yummy vegan bars. My favorite is the cherry pie bar...oh and the ginger on e is good too. The ingredients for the cherry one is: dates, almonds, and unsweetened cherries. Yeah, that's it! That's the way food should be made!

9:51 AM...Made a detour to Ethel M's...nothing vegan there

9:58 AM...Well thought out twinkles
(X marks the really find weird stuff on the floor)

1:04 PM...It's fucking hot as hell...and yet it's only 86 degrees...weird. Stopped by Caesar's Palace and MGM again for my dad to play some slots. My mom and I had some fun at FAO Shwarts again.
(went to the M&Ms store...nope no vegan chocolate, but a fun tunnel!)

1:14 PM...My Dad just bet me $1000 that I'm going to break (being vegan) in two years. Hahahahahahaha better just to pay me now.

3:27 PM...Forgot to mention it's Rockabilly weekend at the Gold Coast. It's pretty awesome to see all these people in their 50's outfits and swell tattoos. Ya. Bye Las Vegas, I won't miss you. Outlet shopping time!

5:25 PM...Phew! I just knocked out for one and a half hours...just passed ZZyzx Road. What the hell is up with that name? I loooooooooooooooooove this song...Only of You (Green Day), it's so old school.

5:37 PM....For Reason's Unknown...Have you ever heard anyone say "I hate The Killers"? Of course not, that would be like...not liking chocolate soymilk. I remember when I discovered them and people were like "Who?" And then all of a sudden..."I love The Killers!" Don't you hate when that happens? But, I shouldn't be one of those people...they get uber annoying and you just want to slap the shit out of them.

6:04 PM...Joga (on of my favorite songs from Bjork)

6:52 PM...Bought a shirt at Vans

7:18 PM...Bought a jacket from Old Navy

11:56 PM...Stopped by my aunt's house, she cooked us dinner. Yummy yummy. Then we watched (my mom, aunt, and I) Cry Wolf. First time I watched it/ It was ok. The main actor was pretty cute. Jon Bon Jovi was in it. Random, no? The ending should have been longer, like the chick should have done some crazy shot the guy and turned into a walrus. Then that would have been interesting. Dear God! My mom is playing Keith Urban! GET ME OUT OF THIS CAR!


12:48 AM...Hom Sweet Home! Never been happier than to see my glorious room, comfy bed, and to hear that it's KROQ's block party weekend.
Woo Hoo! Let's clebrate like there's no tomorrow! I just realized what's on the shirt I bought...a face of a chick and then two girls on the stripper outlines. I liked it because it was black and had stars on it...whatever. It's still cute.
And my powder for you to see (my cookie in the back)
Ok my people...that was my road trip to Vegas...hope you had as much fun as much fun as I did. Can't wait till I can start my usuall blogs again! Time to sleep!

The End.
(for today)
