Inspirational athlete!

Thursday, July 17, 2014

Okay, so basically all athletes are an inspiration, but Kacy Catanzaro is OFFICIALLY my new hero! She recently became the first woman to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama ("American Ninja Warrior"), and I just cannot stop watching this video of her qualifying.

The video has been making rounds on social media, and maybe you're sick of seeing it everywhere... but SparkFriends, I encourage you to watch it at least once.

Link to the YouTube video here!:

New kittens - Kermit & Rufus!

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

This entry is a bit overdue, but I would like to introduce my SparkFriends to the two newest members of my family--Kermit & Rufus! These two brothers were born on July 1 and have been causing mischief and warming hearts ever since. :) Also destroying my boyfriend's furniture. But it's okay because we aren't allowed to own nice things anyway.

Kermit, being adorable. (Apologies for the mess in the background! The kittens love it though.)

Rufus, every time I attempt to go for a run.

A side-by-side comparison: Rufus is on the left, Kermit is on the right. A split second after this photo was taken, they were jumping all over the place! And yes, I am well aware that I look like a creep lurking in that reflection... -_-;

That's all for now! Have a great day, everyone!

Glad I don't live in Japan!

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

So this is my racerback workout tank:

Apparently, I'm a Size L in Japan!!! O_o;; Not sure if this is amusing or appalling, given that I am a few pounds underweight for my height according to US standards.

    When my sister was teaching in China, she had to wear a uniform. She's a tall woman, 5'10" and probably wore a size 12/14 or L/XL at the time. Apparently that translated into a size 5X in China!

    YIKES. They probably don't even have a SIZE for me! Scary... outsmall each other?!

I try not to think of those size charts. I am called large in my size for a reason. Whomp whomp...

    TATERCAT, I don't know about the "still healthy" comment. I've noticed college-aged and young professional women (in Asia and international students here in the U.S.) are often trying to "outsmall" each other. There is this obsession with being small/skinny over there.

Edit: Although I agree that Asians do tend to, on average, have smaller body frames.

    Go for amusing!

When I lived in Japan it was a bit challenging to buy clothes, but they have really really small body frames. They are still healthy, but they are more petite.

    Very funny! I know there are cable cars in Japan (a friend visited) that have a Maximum capacity of 4 Americans or 8 Jappanese. That's what the sign says. I'd always thought that was a shot at our obesity epidemic, but it's also coupled with how generally small the Japanese people are as well.

Roasted Acorn Squash

Thursday, March 14, 2013

This is quite possibly the best thing I have ever tasted... in recent memory, anyway.

    I find that you can get by with using less butter and a lot less brown sugar than the recipe calls for. The acorn squash is already pretty sweet on its own!

    This is one of my favorite vegetables and this is how I always have fixed it. Now I am trying to lighten it up a little.

    I grew up eating this using fresh acorn squash that we grew in our own garden. You are right it is great.
