Well, I last wrote about my candy exchange. I sent her the package on the 7th and she hasn’t received it nor have I received my package of candy which she sent the week prior. She said it should have been delivered on Thursday or Friday but since it’s Easter weekend I know it’s going to be late…if it comes at all. I’ve already made a second package out filled with Peeps and other various Easter candies for a family in Manchester, England. That will be shipped out next Saturday. I’m also making a package for my best friend. He’ll be my last package until winter due to how hot it is.
The weather needs to stop being a slut and just give it up already. I’m tired of all this Spring weather and then Winter is like “just kidding bro” and it snows or something like that.
I don’t know. I wanted to spill my guts on this one about how and what I’m so upset about right now but it isn’t appropriate and would just start surpluflulous drama.
I’m making my brother an administrator on my site. Tang-yaroo is going to transition into a nondescrimitory gender blog. I want everyone, if they want, to be able to blog, not just women.
Once I’ll get my package I’ll blog again.
Okay, so I’d like to first start by saying I am fifty shades of excited. You know, because it’s cool to use fifty shades when describing how *insert emotion* you’re feeling. Seriously, whoever thought a weak BDSM erotic novel could shape colloquialisms. I have no idea why I started to talk about this. This is an entirely separate blog I never got around to writing.
Back on track to I’m doing a candy swap with someone in the UK!
I’m going to now tell you how my candy hunting expedition went. As posted earlier, my brother came down to visit me last weekend. I had planned on going candy shopping then but, unfortunately, I caught what I can only describe as the kid sister of the bubonic plague. I literally cannot walk any sort of distance without having to sit down and catch my breath due to the amount of lung butter that is manifesting inside my chest. I realize that is a disgusting description, but it’s the truth. So for a week I’ve been drugged out of my fucking mind on different decongestants and expectorants trying to get this shit out of my lungs.
I figured I wasn’t going to be able to walk far and it was going to be a shorter less enjoyable candy hunting expedition than I had planned. I really wanted to take my time and get the brightest, weirdest, and yummiest candies but sadly I had to settle for an endcap at Target because if I walked a foot more I literally would have passed out from lack of oxygen. I also felt pressured to get shit done since my person has already sent out my package as well as Oklahoma weather is insane and I don’t want the chocolate to melt.
Per request I purchased beef jerky, Butterfingers, and Baby Ruths. Now, I’ve never eaten a Baby Ruth, but I figured since I see people eat them on a regular basis that they would be easy to find. Uh, wrongo. To find them I had to buy a $15.00 back of mixed chocolates from Nestle that also contained miniature Butterfingers.
A list of everything I purchased for her:
- Jack Links Beef Jerky in original and teriyaki
- Cheddar and Sour Cream Ruffles
- Crunchy Cheetos
- Snickers Almond
- Sour Patch Kids
- Air Heads
- Reese’s Mini Peanut Butter Cups
- White Chocolate KitKat bar
- Hershey’s Cookies ‘N’ Creme bar
- Mounds and Almond Joy because sometimes you feel like a nut and sometimes you don’t
- Reese’s Big Cup
- M&M’s Pretzel
- Swedish Fish
- Skittles Darkside “The Other Side of the Rainbow”
- Fun Sized Butterfingers
- Fun Sized Baby Ruth bars
- Butterfinger Bites
Before I caught the plague I wanted to add a Zero bar and some Rainbow Twizzlers. I was thinking maybe some Mexican candy but I feel like shit and I feel like this is enough candy from the US to last her at least 3 months. I also bought her a PayDay bar but I may or may have not drank an entire bottle of wine yesterday and may or may have not consumed the PayDay bar and might have eaten the mystery Air Head… You’ll never know. Yes, I do realize the wine isn’t helping my situation but do you know how many fucks were given yesterday? Not one…not one at all.
I’m hoping to get this stuff shipped out tomorrow but we’re supposed to get slapped by Jack Frost’s pimp hand tomorrow…again. We shall see.
I’m still kind of out of it. I apologize for typos.
In the late 80′s and early 90′s there was this huge dance craze called The Lambada… I keep saying it in my head with a Latin-y accent even though it’s Portiguies. Anyway, a big dance craze which was basically people having sex with clothes on generated soundtracks and movies.
I want to stop right here and just advise you that my incoherent rambling are heavily influenced by Nyquil, that Tussin, and liquid Mucinex. I feel like shit, straight up.
Due to my ailment I’ve been sleeping and watching TV all day. I came across the movie Lambada on Netflix. Now I had, or thought I had, heard about this movie but I was wrong. There’s also a movie called The Forbidden Dance which is also about the Lambada but it’s being done to save the rain forest. Anyway, I decided to blog the top 5 things I learned from Lambada.
5. This movie has an actor named Shabba Doo in it. No, I’m not kidding.
4. People in the early 90′s thought the Single White Female hair cut, shoulder pads, and “mom” jeans were stylish.
3. Janet Leveson from the Office was a little hot for teacher Jezebel in this movie. Uncomfortable.
2. Get yo’ education boo boo.
1. This movie had nothing to do with the Lambada.
I feel like I want the two hours I just wasted watching that movie back.
You know when you can’t sleep and you start to watch videos on YouTube or end up clicking tags on tumblr? Maybe this is just me, however, about a month ago I stumbled upon this video:
Which then lead me to this video:
I had already purchased a ton of Japanese Kitkat bars and pocky before I saw that video, but this prompted me to find these Popin’ Cookin’ kits. I purchased two of them off a store from eBay. I’d link you but I have no idea what my eBay infomation is but I have liked their page on Facebook which links you to their store.
Any how, I purchased two kits from the store. The sushi shop one and the bento box one. I haven’t made the bento box one but I did make the sushi one at work on Thursday. I wouldn’t say I’d ever purchase it again but it was super fun. Per the video you mix the color coded packages with water in the correct area and magic happens. It all tasted very sweet and flavorless. The faux sticky rice did taste like something called Ramune. She says it’s like lemon lime Sweet Tarts. I’d say grape Sweet Tarts and JuicyFruit mixed. It isn’t something that is tolerant in my taste pallet and the texture was def a turn off. I’m glad I bought it but I don’t think I’d do it again.
I just realized I can’t post pictures of the finished product becasue there are customers numbers written on the pad of paper in the backround and I’m not savy enough to photoshop them out. Sorry loves.
I also purchased several Japanese KitKat bars. They were super crazy in terms of my standards. I had strawberry, tea, green tea, cheesecake, vanilla ice cream, bitter chocolate, chili infused chocolate- my favorite, purple potato, wasabi, and some candied bean thing. I was not a fan of it. I passed them out at work for Valentines day. I think my co-workers enjoyed them.
I’m trying to get a candy swap going with my friend in the Netherlands. I hope this works out. I’d love to write and show you guys if it happens.
I’ve been seeing this list float around on Pinterest.com of the 10 Books Every Girl Should Read in her Twenties. I decided to check it out and it was literally crap. I have no interest in reading books by Jane Austen, Confessions of a Shopaholic, or that one dude who wrote The Notebook. I actually don’t know if the last one was on the list because I stopped reading it after I saw Pride and Prejudiced on there. I’m sure it’s a really great book, if you’re into that kind of crappy sappy lovey dovey type stuff, but it is not for me. So I’ve decided to list some of my favorite books. These are the books that have literally stuck with me and I can still tell you every detail in them. Some of them are children’s books but they are a must read, in my opinion. Also, after you read what I write down if you want to add any books that you think I may be interested in feel free to comment them down below!
