sometimes when the trees are like this, i wish that i lived in one of those animes where the sakura petals are falling like snow all the time.

and then i think, no. i don't ever want to be that melodramatic.

people in the trees

i was thinking about making a "people under the stairs joke" or comparison or something but i don't even know because i have slept for maybe three hours this weekend.

hot cross buns

buns with icing by Rakka

it always takes a while to make these, but they're worth it.

i don't ever use the icing recipe, however, choosing instead to mix up a tbs of cream cheese with a tbs of powdered sugar and the juice from a quarter of a lemon.

hanami time

i was not entirely truthful about clearing out until after april fool's. i will probably be posting things today and tomorrow before taking a break to avoid the "jokes" on monday.

anyway, it is crazy hanami party time at the park down the street from my house. sadly, none of my pictures came out today which is why you are looking at my shoe.

i'll try again tomorrow. in the mean time, however, it is time for "bioshock infinite" and hot cross buns.

this is the last of my mourning richard griffiths, fucking farmer's pie.

ed note: no, this is technically not a farmer's pie. look at me not giving a fuck. it's close enough.

ed note 2: i will not be online until after april fool's day because UGH i hate the tedium of april fool's on the web. it just gets worse every year.

happy holiday if this is one you celebrate! if not, enjoy your weekend.

my life is not very e.m. forster. you knew this already. i am not writing to you from early 20th century britain for starters. also my view this week has not been very sweeping (or italian) because of my being couch bound.

anyway, a quick hi hey hello to new people dropping by from various places around the internet and a big thank you to all of the various sites who have directed you this way.

proving that YET AGAIN i have the greatest friends in the world, on a day when my back has blown out, in the middle of one of the most stressful weeks in a while, a lovely package containing peruvian chocolate arrived in the mail today.

THANK YOU SO MUCH CRYSTL!!! you are truly the greatest! (and the chocolate was delicious.)

this is not sun tea

while it does perhaps slightly resemble "30 rock" sun tea, i can assure you that this is the finished zoider/cider that i started a few days ago.

it's now in the fridge chillin'. should be totally finished by friday. three cheers for oggy raiding.

the cherry trees about a block from my house are starting to bloom. i don't think anyone told them that we're not doing spring this year. or, if someone did, i'm glad the trees agreed to ignore them.

a ball jar is not quite as depressing as a bell jar. it is also twice as funny because "ball".

marriage, like a tattoo, is too permanent. which is why i will always opt for live ins and sharpies. but not particularly in that order.

balls! by Rakka
balls!, a photo by Rakka on Flickr.
how has your spring been progressing? is it balls? if you were me and comparing it to last year at this time when you were getting ready to head to back to the uk and france, it would totally be balls.

i would like to leave here for a while, please and thank you. it does not even have to be transatlantic.
