Nothing like some Mexican Corn and Peanut Butter Crunch cookies…

1358270376739

My mother sent me a picture of my baby Wolfgang yesterday.

Isn’t he so precious? I just LOVE my big baby.

So yesterday Olivo went to school with me to check out the campus while I had my one class for the day.

I actually enjoyed my Science Fiction class yesterday. We got to discuss King Solomon’s Mines by H. Rider Haggard and I totally got to rip this girl’s ideas TO SHREADS! So I was pretty happy.

What? She said something stupid without thinking. She gets what she deserves.

After that Olivo and I went to The Tea Farm near campus. I really love the tea there so I had to take her since she’s a tea fanatic.

I had the Green Tea Lemonade, like I always do, and it was DELICIOUS!

If you have time you should check the place out. It has a simple yet pleasing interior design, a shelf full of books for customers to read from and exchange with if they like, food options and of course, delicious tea! If you’re in Honolulu, you MUST check it out!

I’m pretty sure I’ll write a complete Yelp review soon. I feel like I’m about to pass out right now so I’ll put it off till tomorrow.

And for those of you who are curious, here is my Yelp link:

serialprincess.yelp.com

I have reviews for places in Honolulu, Los Angeles, San Francisco as well as some that are scattered here and there within the continental US!

After that we took a trip to the post office and I mailed a box of cookies to my friend Kana, a Christmas gift that I had to exchange for a nephew and some post cards for friends. I love the post office but I hate it. Sending mail just costs an arm and a leg. It always makes me cringe and die a little bit on the inside…

Decided to make Mexican food so I made Chicken Quesadillas and some Mexican corn on the cob! I forgot to buy the lime so it wasn’t as AMAZING as it could have been but I was pretty happy with how it turned out. First time trying to make it and I’m glad it worked out…for the most part. I’ll remember to buy limes next time though.

I had to use Parmesan instead of Cotija cheese because I doubt I could get any of that in Hawaii.

Here is the recipe I used if anyone is curious.

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons mayonnaise (fat free is fine)
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice (optional)
2 tablespoons finely grated parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 ears corn, shucked

Directions:

1. Prepare grill.

2. Combine mayo and juice (if using) in a small bowl.

3.Combine cheese and seasonings in another small bowl.

4. Place corn on grill rack that has been sprayed with cooking spray.

5. Grill corn 12 minutes or until tender, turning frequently.

6. Remove from grill and brush with mayo mixture, and sprinkle with cheese mixture.

7. Serve immediately.

Retail Therapy

So it’s no secret that I’ve been a little homesick so when I asked my mother to send me some Trader Joe’s goodies she went out right away to get them for me! I had all but forgotten about Trader Joe’s while I’ve been here but I had a sudden craving for Caramel Waffles and everyone who knows knows that Trader Joe’s waffles can’t be beat! YUM!

My mother also sent other cookies and goodies that I love! And some Yerba Mate tea that ALWAYS makes me feel better when I have a stomach ache. You guys should try it some time when you aren’t feeling well. Yes it has caffeine but it does wonders! All you need is Yerba Mate with a lot of honey and it’s like you’re all better again!

She also sent me wafers which I absolutely detest. She always forgets and sends them to me anyway. *Shrug* It’s the thought that counts. I’ll eat everything else and leave the wafers for someone else to devour. I need to remind my mother about the biscotti too next time.

I’ve also been hitting the gym since I’ve been feeling a little pudgy lately and I feel great! It’s hard when you don’t have your gay best friend to go with you  but I’m trying my best to be consistent.

I’ve also been spending too much money since Mark’s been gone. But like the title says, it’s retail therapy. I’m trying to cope being alone and it’s going pretty well. I’ve made some friends and I’ve been going out so I’m doing better than I thought I would be.

Look what I got today!

I bought my little nephew (in-law) this rad Spiderman shirt so I can give it to him when we go visit during Christmas! Spiderman is EVERYTHING to this kid. Literally. Just hope he doesn’t outgrow the shirt TOO fast. And then before we go I’ll stop by Target again and get him some action figures. It’s hard when you don’t know what they have or don’t have but I’m sure he’ll be happy either way.

I also got myself the next Tokidoki Planner. 3 years strong!

I’m pretty sure I left the 2011 back home in LA.

And the only reason why I bought this one now is because in my 2012 planner there’s a page in there that says “IT’S ABOUT TIME TO ORDER YOUR NEXT PLANNER!” but then it also said “CONTINENTAL US”. Go figure.  So I decided it only made sense to just buy it when I saw it.

I also mailed out presents for my friends and family today which I hope they’ll enjoy. I just love sending mail! I really do. If anyone wants a new penpal let me know! Hahaha.

And more sports blog posts coming soon! I promise!

*EDIT*

I also bought these off ebay yesterday. I just couldn’t resist! They just screamed ME!

Aren’t they just adorable! Can’t wait to get them in the mail!

The Line Game

So I had to play the Line Game today. Because I’m taking my car with me I had to go to the DMV so my mother could sign over the car to me. Mark told me that I didn’t need an appointment so I didn’t make one. I failed to realize that he got to sign over the title without a wait because he was in the middle of nowhere but that I wouldn’t be so lucky because I live in LA. Oh Well. My mother kept saying that I should’ve listened to her. Sorry mother.

So…we went to one DMV and waited in line, only for them to tell us that we have to drive to a whole different DMV to sign over the title of our car. When we get there my mother has to wait in a line JUST to find parking. So I went out, stood in another line so they could give me a number so I could wait even more. We went to a pretty nice DMV. I got #B186 and when I got there they were on #B145. Lame. Hahaha. Oh Well. Like I was saying, the DMV was pretty new and airy so it was a pleasant wait, until the kids started showing up and crying. I just wanted to yell at the parents while pulling my hair out and kicking their kids at the same time! AH!

I hate kids. I hate kids that cry. I hate kids that cry because other kids are crying. I hate everyone.

But we got the title signed over and it should come in the mail in 3 weeks. Yay! Only cost $15! Lolz.

After that I went to the post office because I just LOVE waiting in lines. The line ended up moving out pretty quickly, I got pretty lucky with that one. It was like I was at Disneyland all morning! Well actually…I know how to avoid lines at Disneyland and I NEVER wait for any ride, but you know what I mean.

You know what’s really scary though? Parents reporting their children’s cars stolen even after they bought it for them. WHO DOES THAT? WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND DOES THAT? Jesus Christ!

Now it’s time to finish watching The Bachelor!

I KNOW WHO WINS! Well…everyone does. I hate hometown date episodes, they’re so boring. *Yawn*
