+ Survived the CBEST test!
- Frustrated the hell out of myself because I did the second essay first, but wrote it on the sheet for the first essay. D: So I had to transcribe it to the proper sheet and erase the wrong part. Wasted about twenty minutes, so I didn't finish essay no. 1.

+ Made a new friend at the test!
- Because the officials who collected all our cell phones at the beginning couldn't find hers!
+ But it turned out later to have been in the wrong box. Phone recovered! I basically spent time lending her my phone so she could call her ride, and we swapped stories. She told me about being a teacher in Colombia and coming her, learning English, and testing to be a teacher here. I told her about trying to be a speech therapist.

+ Found a recipe for Amazing and Easy Lentils and Rice. It really was that easy. Used some frozen lamb stock I had in the freezer for flavor, garlic, onion and tomatoes, and it was delicious.
- (?) Mom said that everything in her bathroom smelled like it afterwards. :P
+ Food porn at Queen's house! Photographs to come! Poached pears, cake, and my lentils and rice, and wine/sparkling cider. All to try the burnt caramel sauce I bought when Queen and I went to the SF Farmer's Market at the Ferry Building. Guys? The term 'foodgasm' is utterly appropriate here.

- Work was so boring because of the rain. Pretty quiet.
---Murphy decided to liven things up. I'm not sure if I was klutzy, forgetful, or the machine just went haywire. We have a stack cutter for cutting edges off photographs. Very low-tech, a bar for holding the photos in place and a blade on a giant handle, like a giant cleaver. Usually I'll cut, then put the handle back to vertical where a little catch keeps it in place. This time as I was getting the cut photos out, the handle fell down. So I caught it -- blade-first on my fingers. UM, THE EASILY SQUICKED MAY WANT TO SKIP THIS PART WHICH SHALL BE BEHIND LJ-CUT )

+ Birthday dinner for my grandpa, turning 79! Uncle and aunt came in, there was cooking of delicious food like corn soup, steamed fish, eggplant, mushrooms galore, and more tasty veggies than you can shake a stick at. :D And awesome cake from my aunt's friend's bakery in Chinatown, spongecake with fruit and this awesome light frosting, not heavy like buttercream (I can't stand American desserts because of the heavy frosting).

+ Bro showed me this hilarious video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JruqUIjl5Sw
The Muppets doing Bohemian Rhapsody. You have not lived until you've seen this.

Okay, long enough! Hope all you darlings are doing wonderfully! ♥

So today was the last day of business at the store I manage. So tired. But I still had an art attack after re-reading [livejournal.com profile] waxrose's part 42 in [livejournal.com profile] arashiroadtrip.

Title: Puddlejumping
Fandom: Arashi
Rating: Holding hands under umbrellas
Media: Ink wash, color pencils, markers, micron pens

follow the fake-cut!

Nino rolls his eyes. "That's why I brought this," he answers, handing over a smaller, rainbow-striped umbrella. "Not that I wouldn't love to save you from the big, scary rainclouds, but Satoshi and I are going puddle-jumping, so I think you can find your own way back to the house."

12 hours at the store. With a couple breaks in between. _-_ There were people lining up before 6am to buy stuff, which is kind of crazy. Those 3-pack of Sandisk SD cards, people were crazy for them. Also apparently there was a nutso trying to get in who sort of blocked the openers from getting in to open. >.<

But yeah. Day of sales. I had a couple of good ones. Store was dead dead dead after 6pm. Also my car died and rose again like a zombie twice, where I drove home for a break and tried to leave and it refused to start. And then my mom put the keys in and it worked. afjoarijag. Of course. afjaoirafa >.<

6am to 8:45pm. I'm crazy. Somebody is. Anyhow, going to take a shower and then hanging out with the girls. [livejournal.com profile] erjika is actually going to go out with us. *gasp*

Thanksgiving was delicious. 13 people in total, including my adorable cousins(?) who are 1 and 3, we spent a significant portion of the evening banging on my mom's upright piano and bumping on our butts down the stairs between the first and second floors. :) Mmmmfood. Uncle brought lobsters and fish (ling cod?), my grandma made ribs, brother cooked some veggies, we had delicious mushrooms, and grandma made the best damn yun'er and dong gua (wintermelon) soup I've ever had. Also my auntie brought black forest cake. Mmmmmmm. Oh yeah, there was turkey, but the focus was the lobster, heeee.

Okay, off to the shower!

My love to all. ♥ How was your day/Thanksgiving?
