Beanie level: Errand boy

Running away for a few minutes from this wedding I’m supposed to be at because the last 24 hours have been an absolute s***show and I can’t deal. Hoping a quick drama break will help.

Gotta love this attitude. I really love what this drama is doing with the second leads. They really provide interesting mirrors to the leads, showing them what they need in life.

    I’m now loving her. And she’s really pretty too

      I’ve liked this actress in the few smaller parts I’ve seen her in — but she was relegated to tertiary characters so it’s nice seeing her in a bigger role. Though I think she was second lead in Seven Day Queen? I remember liking her in Bubblegum and even as the bratty evil stepsister in Cinderella and Four Knights.

        I never liked her character in Seven Day Queen, hee. That’s why I was wary of her character in Go Back Couple. It’s a good thing she turned out to be a sensible 2nd lead this time πŸ™‚

I have somehow been coerced into attending another wedding this weekend (fifth this year) and I can’t even anymore.

Now I get to drive 4 hours.

Both.
Ways.

With my parents.

Pray for me.

    I once went to 7 weddings in one year including mine. I guess it was a good year to get married. Lol

      I’m just annoyed to have to put so much effort into what essentially amounts to a fancy dinner with people I don’t really care for. At least the other weddings I went to this year allowed me to spend time with people I love and don’t see much. I don’t want to spend my precious weekend driving and then getting dressed up for people who really won’t care. I’d rather just sleep.

          Ha, thanks. I didn’t mean to come off as super whiny – I honestly don’t mind weddings in general. It’s just been a really stressful year for me personally and the weddings all seemed to exacerbate my anxiety so I kind of have a gut negative reaction to them right now.

    This seems like a good rule of thumb: if the store has a sale on melonas (especially a nice one like buy one get one free) you buy the melonas. If the store carries melonas you buy the melonas. If you are down to your last one dollar bill and melonas are one dollar and twenty-five cents plus tax you go digging around the nearest bus station for the twenty-five cents plus tax and buy the melonas. There really isn’t a scenario in which buying the melonas isn’t the right thing to do.
    If its too cold outside to cheerfully enjoy a melona—crank up the heat, baby! Yeah. I feel like this is right. I have two boxes in my freezer right now. Melon and strawberry.

      Also is it just me who has a thing for eating ice cream in the middle of winter…?

      2
      2

        I have yet to encounter a type of weather that would prevent me from eating and enjoying icecream. I may eat it in front of a space heater or under a mountain of blankets but by golly gee I will eat the ice cream. And if for some reason the only place I can eat ice cream in the middle of the winter is out of doors in the middle of a snow storm—I’m eating the ice cream. ICE CREAM. I will say though, when I very first moved here this place is at a higher altitude than my old state and the different altitude made everything (but especially ice cream) taste weird.

        2
        3

          Oh good. Great. I approve. I’d also do that.
          But I also crave ice cream when it’s cold for some reason…
          Mmmm the altitude effects your taste buds, pretty sure that’s why aeroplane food taste weird sometimes too πŸ˜›

          1

            I always crave ice cream. Ice cream and pizza (and my moms lasagna and macaroni oh, and spaghetti-os) are my comfort food. When life is absolutely crap I reach for one of these. When life is all sunny times and good and such—I crave it. I always want ice cream. There isn’t a particular kind of weather that makes me want it more, though.

            There is blue bell millennium crunch ice cream which I LOVE its SO GOOD. And when I first moved here they had some at the grocery store across from my house and I was like YEEESSSSSS–they stopped selling that brand in my state a couple of years ago–but when I had that first icy and delicious bite–I spit it out. It was so foul. I still have it in my freezer and once a week or so I try some to see if my taste buds are ready. I miss ice cream.

            It just tasted really, really bad. Like they had forgotten to add sugar and had instead frozen toppings in a puddle of milk and we’re trying to pass that thin unsweetened mess off as ice cream. Not this day, ya jerks.

            I think it was the altitude. I still have it in my freezer (that ice cream is like 8 bucks for half a gallon. This gal is cheap.) and occasionally (booyah) I go in there and taste it. Its a bit freezer burned now because its been there since August but every time I taste it tastes more and more like ice cream. So, I think that it was the altitude. For my first month here ALL ice cream tasted like crap. I was—not pleased.

        So, I always say that ice cream is my favorite food — to the point that this is a bit of a running joke with my cousins. But is Melona ice cream? I’d say yes, but with the caveat that it is more of a popsicle-esqe one, hence it straddles a line between ice cream and sorbet. (Please don’t revoke my Melona Kingdom citizenship)

        1

          No, no, I agree with you. I’ve always sort struggled to know what to call it cos it’s not perfectly either, nor is it your typical straight juice Popsicle.
          I was actually caving normal ice cream last night but we didn’t have any, so I had to settle on a Melona, which is not a bad thing hahaha. But I still want normal ice cream πŸ˜›

        Right? I don’t think that there’s a single song of his that I don’t like. I like all of them to varying degrees but as soon as I hear his voice—goodness. I need to remember this for the next bad mood–it all just sort of melts away. He does have the perfect weather voice. A book, a saltnpaper playlist, and hot chocolate or tea. Yes. thats the way to do it. I unfortunately, have to do some of the errands I put off. I made slow fried chicken (a new recipe, we’ll see how it turns out) and mashed potatoes and peas to have for lunch this week. And nothing at all for dinner. I could have popcorn? ADULTING. BOOM.

          Ha, I managed to get to the grocery store today for basics (eggs, yogurt, etc.) and came out with two boxes of Melona, three rolls of my favorite chocolate biscuits (also on sale, but I may give one to my mother if I feel nice) and twp bags of hot cheetoes (also on sale). Then I had a super balanced meal of hot cheetoes and broccoli. THIS IS HOW I ADULT. I think I’m doing pretty well after last week’s ridiculousness of actually going to yoga and eating fruits and veggies regularly. Can’t keep that nonsense up.

          Still need to sort lunches and dinners for the week, but that’ll happen after the latest episode of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend which I’ve sandwiched between episodes of The Great British Bake-Off for my sanity.

          1
          1

            You had a vegetable! Its totally balanced. Last week when I was less than prepared for this new schedule that I’m working with I had hard boiled eggs (I always have hard boiled eggs in my fridge) for breakfast and lunch–thats it. Nothing more. Just hardboiled eggs–wait one of those days I also had a pickle. And for dinner? Gas station hot dog. I EARNED my subway sandwich and drama the other day.
            Now, I’m off to do laundry at the creepy lady’s house. UGH. Laundromats are SO expensive, I do NOT want to go to her house. She’s SO pushy and judgy. I’ve been doing the fade away with her and only see her once a week. Maybe once every other week and its still too much. She has decided that I need to stay with someone close to my job since its a 2.5 hour commute. I told her, I’m fine. I’ll handle it, I’m still profiting and this job isn’t about money so much as its about connections. She’s been emailing and texting me EVERYDAY with phone numbers of people I can stay with. It would be one thing if these were people I had met. Or if they were women. Or if they were members of my church. They are NONE OF THE ABOVE. They are random people that she met on facebook and she keeps telling me (in the snottiest voice) well I would do it. To which all I can think is—do it then! Get eaten by a serial killer with a taste for small Latina women. I am a paranoid person who doesn’t trust anyone. I am NOT staying in the house of some rando. Its the fact that she keeps calling and texting and emailing even after I’ve told her to stop because she’s decided that this is whats best for me. Even when I’m 100% wrong—I’ll keep doing the stupid thing because I don’t like it when people try and tell me what to do. My catchphrase is “I do what I want” for a reason! most people catch on pretty quick and stop trying to tell me what to do because I will do the opposite just to spite us both—she doesnt listen. But I really need my skinny jeans to be clean. So…adulting. Dealing with people you don’t like in order to do your laundry for free.

          Fade out sounds good. Granted, I feel you on the free laundry. Sometimes I schlep it out to the burbs with my mom for that. (God, don’t get me started on that. I was supposed to go home yesterday but got out of it. But my punishment is going to an out of town wedding next weekend with both parents. A 4 hour drive. Guess who’ll be doing most of the driving? And not listening to any k-pop.) At least you seem to be getting some space from her, even if she isn’t respecting it. How did the email go? Ignored? I assume that would be that kind of person’s response. Hopefully you can extract yourself soon. ALSO, what business is it of hers if you decide to commute a long distance? You do you, is what I always say.

          Also, DO NOT STAY WITH A RANDO. That’s not even basic adulting; we literally teach that to small children. Also, who will I rant with here if you get kidnapped by a cult? No one else seems to share my PTSD from The Perfect Match like you.

          My default has been egg salad sandwiches since I started this job. It’s worked out pretty well — any day I have leftovers I’ll take that, sandwich as backup if i”m too tired otherwise. Then some fruit, a protein bar and green tea during the day. It’s boring, but it does the job.

            The Perfect Match was a dreadful show it started out so well. The bad thing about it all is as good as the beginning was it didn’t make up for the horror of that back half. If the beginning were better or if the ending were less horrendous then they would balance each other for a perfectly meh sort of drama. But no. That ending went so far off the rails that the only way to describe that drama is AWFUL.

            I would never stay with a rando. Thats just not how any single part of my personality works. As I was doing my laundry she was all…”So, you’re really stubborn. And hard headed. And a little mean.” To which I replied, “yeppers peppers. It super pisses me off when people try and tell me what to do. I tend to do the opposite just so that they can be as pissed as I am.” And then there was a speaking silence.

            I really have no idea what she has against my commute other than its my big excuse for why I can’t be at her beck and call. “I would TOTALLY hang out with you, homey, except that my commute is 3 hours and the library closes at 9 and I’m not getting home until midnight and I have to leave at like 5 in order to get there at 9 to beat the traffic! So…..” Its just easier. Lying is an option! It makes me feel like a horrible person but is an option! When I made it over there tonight all of my pants—ALL OF MY PANTS–have a ripped seam right below the zipper and she had taken them out and sewn the rip and reinforced the seam in the seat. And its the fact that she does things like that and stresses herself out over finding a button to sew up my shirt that makes me feel like crap for wanting like 96% less time with her.

            Your lunch sounds so healthy! Like I said, for this first week I was living off of hard boiled eggs and gas station hot dogs. When I came home just now I tried one of the slow fried chicken thighs that I made and it was so freakinggood. Fried chicken has been my nemesis since I was like 13. I could not master it. But this chicken? Cooked all the way through. Juicy. Perfectly seasoned. DELICIOUS. I almost want to wait to have it until I’m watching TOL so that I can wave at the screen to Jung Sun what I’ve done.

          First: DAMN, that chicken sounds good. I should cook meat more. I used to make Indian food all the time in uni, but being in proximity to my mother means I’ve gotten lazy. I mean, I make other stuff, but nothing that fancy most of the time.

          OK, now, I may be out of line here but — that behavior of hers still seems really iffy? Like, I get that it’s done with good intentions, but it’s still an total invasion of your stuff. If she does stuff like that without asking, even if it’s really nice, useful, helpful work, it’s still completely disregarding you and your space and infringing on your property. I don’t know, it would really bother me, even though I get that it’s actually a really nice deed; but it’s also kind of manipulative since you can’t really say anything about it, but at the same time it’s definitely (to me) overstepping boundaries. But that’s just my two cents.

          OK, I’m off to adult properly and make pizza with a side of asparagus because…not dying of a nutrient deficiency would be nice? I may have some hot cheetoes first. Also, I’m pretty sure someone gave me a sore throat at work today, and I will hunt them down. Except that tomorrow is my day to get paperwork done, so…probably won’t be doing that.

            No, when you put it out there like that and I’m not blinded by pants held together by safety pins (Its a hard life. All my pants ripped pretty much at once like they decided together to give up that ghost and I couldn’t afford new ones) yeah—thats pretty invasive. Its easier to notice manipulation when its something that I don’t like/want but when it comes to things that I do like/want its easy to write it off as something else.
            She’s making me a jacket (it looks remarkably a lot like Ji Ho’s at the end of BIOFL) and this isn’t something that I asked for but the jacket looks awesome (or rather, Ji Ho’s and the pattern look awesome) and when I got off work today she had called and texted half a dozen times to tell me to come over and eat so that I can get measured. Even though I had already told her I wasn’t getting home until near midnight. Eh. fade away. Slowly but surely.

          Damn. I lived in Ontario for four years, but it was never that cold in November. It was probably that this morning here though…but obviously global warming isn’t a thing. Tell that to our non-winter last year, and our boiling hot September, though, because apparently they haven’t gotten the message.

            I lived in Toronto for a good year-and-a-half before, and for me, it wasn’t that it wasn’t cold there, it just seemed like a different type of cold… A lot more wet and dense XD The type of cold we experience here in Canada west, especially in the prairie provinces like here in Alberta, are a much more of a dry cold, so when the air comes and hits your face, it huuuuuurts— and the cold here seems to last longer too– around the 6-months mark, give or take 2 weeks, from October to around mid-April…. For realsies, a good winter moisturizer is my best friend to get through the winters here XD

          Yeah, Chicago is a bit drier than Ontario was. (I swear it misted from Oct-April if it wasn’t actual winter weather when I lived there, so you were just permanently slightly damp. It was torture on my hair.)

          I’ve also leaned into my heavy moisturizers for winter time. Just purchased a refill for one, actually. Love me some shea and vitamin E. And aloe. Or sometimes just straight argan oil. And I always love a good sheet mask.

            For body, I use The Body Shop’s body butter, for moisturizers and skin care I use The Body Shop’s Drops Of Youth serum concentrate, and The Face Shop’s Greet Tea toner and Chia Seed moisturizer (which I think I will need to switch out with something else, maybe something back with the Green Tea line that I used to use, because the Seed line at The Face Shop doesn’t do anything for my skin), and I’ve found that sheet masks have less of an effect on my skin nowadays, unless I do one EVERY. SINGLE. DAY (but it’s like $2.00/sheet times that by 30/31 days in a month… THAT’S $60+ dollars just on sheet masks… um no thank you because I’d rather spend my $$ on something more long lasting), so I’ve made the switch to mask packs, which I only need to do twice (thrice max.) per week

          I swear by Body Shops body butter. I’m also loving their vitamin e moisturizer for my night cream. I just slather it on, and I’ve noticed a huge difference. I have oily skin, so I always need to find stuff that absorbs well. I like sheet masks 1-3 times a week, but in summer I was doing more clay, exfoliating, or peeling masks to deal with oiliness. My friend usually sends me packs of 10-15 sheet masks, plus I stock up at sales so I actually have a box full of them – I actually don’t think I’ve bought any this year myself. Also, sometimes if I’m extra dry, essence before I use one helps the effects last longer, and I always save the leftover serum to use for a day or two after the mask as well.

          Haven’t tried the Face Shop lines, but I love the Benton snail-bee one in winter — especially the steam cream for when it’s extra cold out. It’s incredibly rich though, so a little goes a long way.

            I have sensitive oily to combination skin, depending on the weather, so I really have to watch what I use… I also like to keep things to a minimum, but uh, that doesn’t seem like it’s working out at the moment XDDD

          Benton also has an aloe line that could be good for you – I use the gel moisturizer and it’s really good. It’s really mild, so it could be good for sensitive skin. I have oily-combo skin too, but I’m not too sensitive. I am careful about piling on products since that breaks me out.

          I actually stopped using cleanser regularly and switched to Miceller water (the Simple brand one from the drugstore, which is actually for sensitive skin) and my skin has been clear with the exception of a few minor hormonal breakouts. I use cleanser maybe once a week or if I do a full face of makeup, which is rare. My morning routine is literally miceller water, eye cream, moisturizer. At night I’ve got a few serums but otherwise it’s the same as the morning.

    flying to Chicago tonight…I’m from the south and it’s my first time visiting the north when it’s not summertime…my friend texted me that it’s snowing hard this morning with a windchill of 3 degrees…brrr

      I’m in Chicago, so I’m actually used to it, since I grew up here, but wasn’t expecting it today. It looks like it’s slowed down for now, so I may venture out in a bit. Plus, we’re not in the negatives, so it’s no biggie. Only after it drops a bit below 0 degrees F is it too cold for me. I actually prefer the colder weather to the heat. I was in TN once in June and it was basically my personal hell – hot, humid and sticky all the time.

      You stay warm too! The weekend is looking a little more reasonable, but definitely bring gloves and a hat and scarf.

          The lake is great even when it’s cold. On windy days the waves are high enough to trick you into thinking it’s the ocean! 😜 Too bad you’re not coming after Thanksgiving, Christmastime in Chicago is pretty awesome and very festive.

          @mindy is right about the lake — it’s amazing year round. But there’s so much to do here I’m sure you’ll have a blast.

I love the contrast of the flowers on her skin and how the navy background makes everything pop in an unexpected way.

Styling this must have been incredibly hard but it was worth the end result.

I love really high concept editorials and I have a lot of them saved, so I thought I’d share some here every once in a while.

This one is of Kang So Ra and I’m obsessed.

I have the day off tomorrow and instead of being a responsible adult and cleaning my apartment, I\’m thinking I\’ll just binge something…but what? So many options!

    IKR. I’ve been meaning to do a binge for the longest while. It’s been quite some time since if done that. I miss the feeling. My options are: She Was Pretty, Secret Forest, Circle, Defendant, Save Me, Chicago Typewriter and The Liar and his Lover. The only reason why I would binge the very last one was given how popular it was on here. Any on that list you haven’t seen?

      I haven’t seen Defendant or Save Me, though I did watch an episode and a half of the latter, I just wasn’t in the mood for it at the time. I liked The Liar and His Lover a lot — it’s very charming and bingeable. (I also live reacted to it on my fanwall, so that was fun because I got to have a lot of feedback and interaction with other beanies with it.) Circle and Secret Forest are spectacular, though the latter is dense and bit hard to binge. I liked Chicago Typewriter a lot too. Plus, the soundtrack is excellent. She Was Pretty is sweet, but flawed, but it’s also got a special place in my heart and I love it unabashedly.

      I’m leaning towards something fluffy myself, though a part of me wants to start Avenger’s Social Club or possibly The Package.

        The Package! I am loving it so much! Binge that! I’m going to binge something this weekend (new and unusual for me) I was in the literal middle of Playful Kiss (much better than I remembered from my first viewing) and had just started Murphy’s Law. But, I think I want the excitement of something I’ve never seen before so I’m leaning toward the Thai drama Attention Love. Or maybe finding something that had the same effortless sweet feel that Love O2O had. Hmmm….But I definitely want something chock full of kisses.

          It’s definitely up there. Also debating some TW-dramas and J-doramas. You’ll probably find out where I landed tomorrow when I wake up, look outside and decide to stay in bed. Except when I get out to bake cookies. Because I feel like cookies are needed. (Granted, I also kind of need a new concealer, so I may have to go outside for a bit, but planning to stay in.)

            I made pumpkin prailine bars last week. SO GOOD! I’m saying that I’m going to binge a drama but I finally got my grubby hands on when dimple met Rashi that newish ya novel so I may read that and do a Lee min ki movie marathon.

          Ohh, I started it. It’s cute, but I haven’t finished it yet. Plus, I got Geekerella today (I won it for Kindle in one of those Goodreads giveaway, who’d’ve thunk it?) and was almost late to my 1:30 court call because it was so cute. Gonna have to play tomorrow by ear. But I have to say, I’ve been too tired after work for more than maybe one or two episodes of drama as it is, so my consumption has gone way down.

          Also, pumpkin praline bars sound amazing. And reminds me I need to get my hands on some pumpkin pie ASAP. I’m thinking I’ll make a batch of cookie dough and freeze it, since I want to take some to my cousin this week. She’s due any second now, so I figured some baked goodies were in order.

          The Package and Avenger’s Social Club are awesome, but they both have their issues. The first episode or two of the The Package are slow, but they really pick up after that. The two main leads can get really annoying at times in their own ways–and the old man too–but there is so much heart in this drama that you can’t help but love it. Avenger’s Social Club is also slow, but those ajummas together are a riot. It also has a lot of heart given the leads’ backstories.

          I don’t think there would ever be another drama like Love O2O/Just One Smile Is Very Alluring. It’s one of those one in a million dramas. I thought Rush to the Dead Summer was going to be it, but oh boy was I wrong.

            Well. That’s disappointing. I really love that one. I tried to watch the other one that’s based off the same authos work but it was garbage. Just SO bad and boring and I watched it on DF I think and the comments were all this is JUST like love o2O and I wanted to smack them all individually .

            Love O2O was so addictive, I watched it in like a two days completely by accident. I really do need to rewatch it at some point soon if I ever get the time.

      Circle would be a great binge–every episode is a bonafied cliffhanger.

Also, I really love the way this show uses elevators. It’s very Grey’s Anatomy and I am here for it.
