1) what is the pine tea???? that sounds uber good, regardless of the holiday. 2) any small, traditions I can surprise Vic with. He's vietnamese, but they've adopted/adapted to most traditional chinese habbits. we have a good store just around the corner, so mochii will be involved!

Pink mowse.pngGodotGrow a vagina19:27, 22 January 2012

Oh Oh~ Fun! Korean Cinnamon tea with Pine nuts! Oooh~ Mochiiiii. YUM!

Dumpling (talk)19:32, 22 January 2012

I'm not a huge fan of bean paste, so I tend to eat around it. but the mochii itself tastes like solid marshmellows. :-)

My in-law (she is a distant cousain by European terms, but this family in texas is very very close - and viet families are just duty bound to care about the most distant of relatives as if they were siblings) sends us up a small box of goodies, including crysanthumu candy. But I should learn some traditions.

are you with family this year?

Pink mowse.pngGodotGrow a vagina19:49, 22 January 2012

Yeah. Some people like the red bean paste, and others like it. I personally like it in a bun/mochi/ on top of my ice cream...not so much the candy. But mochi is yummyyyyy~ MMM...

Hahaha. Well, learning some traditions arn't so bad, if not...they're more interesting really.

And no. Not really. My mum doesn't care much for the Lunar New year. I was raised with it, so...I love it mostly for happy memories of the candy and the red envelopes. But the Korean churches here have a mini celebration. I merely go to the Buddhist Temple and celebrate it with close friends.

Dumpling (talk)01:39, 23 January 2012

Advice (not that you asked for it)

"...being 33 and cutting away into a dead body. "You'll forever be alone. No one would want to talk to you. You'd smell like dead bodies. I WANT GRANDCHILDREN!"

Tell your mum to read Kay Scarpetta books. She's hawt, gets loads of nookie and gets to cut up dead bodies. Ok, she also gets stalked by mad psycho killers, but 3 out 4 ain't bad...

PsyGremlinPrata!13:03, 16 January 2012

I'll be sure to tell her that. And just...forget to add in the stalked by mad psycho killers part. Hahaha! ;D And thanks for the advice Psy-Oppa.

I don't care that you could most certainly martial arts the shit out of me. I firmly believe that whenever you walk into a room, this happens:

Don't deny it!

Star of David.png Radioactive Misanthrope08:53, 6 January 2012

That's how she martial arts the shit out of everything.

Dumpling (talk)09:20, 6 January 2012

I don't care if your name is Stabby. I'd roundhouse you and poke you to near death. Then I'd probably feel bad and help you up and get you to a doctor and a giant teddy.

Dumpling (talk)09:20, 6 January 2012

I say this of course in the nicest of ways. (ó㉨ò)ノ♡

Dumpling (talk)10:16, 6 January 2012

Having Dumpling-chan martial art the shit out of you, is probably something akin to getting strangled by fluffy bunnies.

PsyGremlinPrata!09:49, 7 January 2012

. . .I don't even know how to respond to that. Tuzkicry.gif

Dumpling (talk)09:55, 7 January 2012

Getting strangled by fluffy bunnies can be horrific.


"I barely sleep. :P The results are strange."

But strange is good. We like strange.

That said, if you do want a cure for insomnia... eat more popcorn. It releases tryptophan, which in turn helps with the secretion of melatonin, which is the stuff that knocks you out. Unless I've got my terms mixed up, in which case you'll just turn black...

Oh and on the subject of strange...

"Manage to go to toilet pants man" indeed!

PsyGremlinPrata!15:45, 4 January 2012

I suspect it's all the clicking in your head.  ;-) (I can't even wrap my tongue around a "by rote" sentence drilled into me with a 'click' in it.)

for insomnia, I find that banging my head long enough to give me a concussion works.  ;-)

Actually, if you are serious, new techniques are being studied with great success, that literally exhaust you first (and establish hard core rules for your body), then sorta reset your clock. In effect, you say to yourself "I will sleep between 12pm and 6 am (always 6 hours, not sure why). You ONLY use your bedroom for sleep. You do other things till 12 (including getting ready for bed) then at exactly 12, you go to bed. if you do not fall asleep in 30 (?) minutes, you get up and STAY OUT OF THE BED ROOM AN AWAKE for 4 hours, and try again. Under no circumstance do you sleep past 6am. even if you are exhausted. You become a bitch for like a week or two, but it really seems to be one of the best ways to reset yourself. Of course, you need to be at a place in your life where you can have such strict hours.

Pink mowse.pngGodotEn live16:37, 4 January 2012

On the subject of clicking, our gardener taught me Zulu tongue twisters when I was a kid, to get the hang of the clicks. The first, using the !q click is:

  • Ingqeqebulane yaqaqela uqhoqhoqho, uqhoqhoqho waqaqela iqaqa, iqaqa laqalaza. (The storyteller warmed up his throat, this woke up the skunk that looked around in amazement) - every q is a click, made by pulling your tongue away from the roof of your mouth, like you're geeing on a horse.

Then there's the !x click - made by parting your teeth slightly, pressing your tongue against them, then pulling it back. Almost like making a "tsk" sound of disapproval.

  • Amaxoxo ayaxokozela exoxa ngoxamu exhibeni. (The frogs are gossiping loudly about the big lizard)

And then there's Miriam Makeba:

PsyGremlinPrata!17:01, 4 January 2012

OK, very unlinguistic of me, but that sounds lovely in music cause it sounds like part of the rythem, not the language. I can make both clicks, just not as part of actual words. :-)

Pink mowse.pngGodotEn live18:07, 4 January 2012

Wow: 「うんちぐバイバイ。」 literaly means "Goodbye, piece of shit!"

ʤɱ socialist17:30, 4 January 2012

Hahaha. Yeeeep.

Dumpling (talk)02:35, 5 January 2012

Hahaha. I've seen the Toilet song thing when I was little actually. I forgot the show. Gave me unrealistic expectations. Tsk tsk.

Anyways, 'strange' is a maybe a good thing? Considering I've been awake since Monday afternoon, I'm starting to get really weird...and I can feel it. I just want to say really random things and cuddle up to people and make them pat my head or wrap myself up in layers of blankets and go into the corner of my bed and knock out for a couple of hours. (No more than 4, because my body start to wake me up in intervals of 30 minutes and really painful leg cramps.) And I've tried getting myself into a schedule, but that's not...really...possible with me at the current moment and the way things are with me.. Though I have tried, and I do get a bit 'bitchy', but the rest is good. Apparently sleeping with something cold helps.

...And clicking is really hard to for me to do in general, so doing that as part of the actual words would be hard. But the song really is lovely.

Dumpling (talk)02:34, 5 January 2012

That's really worrying. The sleeping thing, not the not-clicking thing, of course.

ʤɱ socialist15:07, 5 January 2012

Eh. It used to be worse. O________O...But I'm working on it. Not exactly the most normal of sleep cycles, but still working on it. Hahaha.

Dumpling (talk)20:18, 5 January 2012
I've seen the Toilet song thing when I was little actually. Gave me unrealistic expectations.

I'm too afraid to even ask, having watched the clip... {-_-;}

PsyGremlinPrata!15:17, 5 January 2012

Well, Sesame Street gave me unrealistic expectations that learning was going to be fun. But it wasn't...which eventually led me to doodle and talk to my fingers, each having a funny face scribbled on. The Toilet song, along with many other children songs, led me to expect that inanimate objects could talk---which led me to talk to them. I don't think that's so much...scary, than it is rather amusing. Or if you're my grandfather amused/worried.

Dumpling (talk)20:21, 5 January 2012

What are you studying in anthropology? I minored in history in undergrad, which included some anthropology, but I have been reading anthropological/archaeological literature more in depth recently for a "cognition and culture" project. Incidentally, there is a site run by something called the International Cognition and Culture Institute that is very useful.

Nebuchadnezzar (talk)07:12, 19 December 2011

For Anthropology, I'm specializing in physical anthropology---which may lead to forensics! Woot~ But hm...that sounds really cool actually! I'll have to look more into that.

Dumpling (talk)07:16, 19 December 2011

Mostly pre-behavioral modernity stuff or more modern stuff?

Nebuchadnezzar (talk)07:26, 19 December 2011

Mostly more modern. :3 Although, the pre-behavioral seems really interesting, but never really got a chance to go into that.

Dumpling (talk)07:29, 19 December 2011

A lot of it is rather speculative.

Have no fear. Dumpling is here. With her trusty humidifier, which I have yet to name. Anyways...Thanks you guys.(ಥ㉨ಥ) <---Tears of joy? With enough rest and meds...and air...I'll be okay. Hopefully no more midnight emergency room trips.

Dumpling (talk)03:57, 16 December 2011

Get well soon! Nothing serious, is it?

Nebuchadnezzar (talk)04:20, 16 December 2011

Damn Elaine. Way to kill the mood. I wanted some cake and ice cream...but not anymore. Okay. I'll still take the ice cream. Haha.

Anyways---Well, no. Nothing too bad, breathing is a bit hard. And talking makes me sound like a creeper. Like one of those sex offenders that whisper in your ear with a slight raspy voice? Except, it sounds weirder...'cause it's from me, and I have a relatively cheery's...It's just weird/hard to explain.

But mum wants to make a double check. So if I'm not better by Saturday, she's taking me to my doctor to get a spinal tap. Not cool. But other than that...I don't think it's too serious?

Dumpling (talk)04:34, 16 December 2011

Oh shit, spinal tap? Don't get better soon, get better now!

Nebuchadnezzar (talk)04:46, 16 December 2011

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! <---I wish it sounded like this.

You just made my day/night. That was hilarious. I'm TRYING. But yes. A spinal tap, because mum's worried that the reason my immune system sucks balls right now is if it's a result of my leukemia. Which...shouldn't be? Because...I had a bone marrow transplant like...2-3 years ago...but..meh. In other words, she just wants to make sure my white blood cell count is okie dokey artichokey.

The irony is that I'm Jewish, and have never had ham or bacon. But I'll be damned if it isn't catchy.

Star of David.png Radioactive Misanthrope18:35, 12 December 2011

I thought you were atheist . . . ?

I am, but I'm still culturally Jewish. Also, it's my parents' house, so I abide by the rules of kashrut (at least the parts they feel like following).

Star of David.png Radioactive Misanthrope19:18, 12 December 2011

There's an entire club for that.

Nebuchadnezzar (talk)19:20, 12 December 2011

Yah. I told my philosophy teacher I was an atheist (after he heard I was Jewish), and he nodded and said, "There's a lot of others like that in Corvallis." (Corvallis is the next town over where all the Jews live.) :D

Star of David.png Radioactive Misanthrope19:31, 12 December 2011

You don't know what you're missing on the pork/ham/bacon front. Also (presumably) shellfish. I recommend trying it, even if you have to do it away from home & keep it secret from the folks.


And the header made me believe something along the lines of pork dumplings. Those are yummy... And yes. It is rather catchy!

ISN'T SHEEEE!? Ah! So adorable. It really is a great show. Haha. Chiaki-Senpai. Such a jerk-face. But a lovable jerkface.

Dumpling (talk)19:51, 26 November 2011

I must confess I nearly fell off my chair laughing in ep 2, where she goes flying past Chiaki and goes face-first into a boulder. I think I must be a bad person... *sadface*

But they've done a good job capturing the "feel" of the show and the characters. And using Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" as BGM is pure win - that was my fave piece of music from the anime.

PsyGremlinPrata!10:20, 27 November 2011

Every episode is a blast! Haha. So no worries. I must be a bad person too. Teehee. But YES! It really was awesome. I'm really glad they used Rhapsody in Blue. Ah~ So cute. I feel like I should rewatch this now.

Dumpling (talk)17:01, 27 November 2011

This was my first drama so obviously taken from an anime. (I now realize many many of the dramas set in hs or college are from anime) and it really retained the anime style which I did and do find sorta off putting. But that aside, i've watched it at lest 4 times.

Limited Spoiler alert The scene where Nodama has left school, Chiaki Senpai rushes to her home, calls her, and sees her walking on the beach as she's talking to him on the phone. Ohhhhh that gets me every single time.

It's actually either/or -- I rolled back because you messed up the links, I didn't see the spelling change at first. Also, by "oppa" do you mean "opa"? If so, I'm definitely not old enough to be a grandpappy yet.

Nebuchadnezzar (talk)09:22, 12 November 2011

Sorry about the links. D: But, okay. Either or. Cool. YAY! I learned something new. Anyways, 'oppa' is the respective term from a younger female to an older male in Korean. Kinda older brother of sort. I think I explained this to Psy once. If I was calling you an old man (in respectives, of course), it would be ajuhshi...

Dumpling (talk)09:25, 12 November 2011

I did explain it with a bit more details.

Dumpling (talk)09:27, 12 November 2011

I see. "Opa" is grandpa in German (and Dutch). I had two opas, but now I've only got one.

Nebuchadnezzar (talk)09:37, 12 November 2011

Ah. Well, in that case. I too only have one opa left. The other, I've never met, but he died a long time ago.

Dumpling (talk)09:38, 12 November 2011

Shouldn't the older male be "아저씨" and not "아주씨"? Or is that a transliteration/transcription thing?

I love Juri Ueno (Last Friends, Nodame) so I watched an interview on a "talk show" with her. I just stared. WTF was every other thought i had.

Pink mowse.pngGodotGet over it!.18:19, 7 November 2011

But I really do love j-drama. Cause it has an actual arc, a beginning, a middle and an end. No shows where you have to wait (Lost) for 7 years to figure out what's actually going on; or shows about cancer where the leads can't die, cause they have to come back next season, etc.
