......chewed up pencils.
......nose picking.
......ringworm. eye (which I have at the moment, in both eyes.)

Weekend in NY (12/9/11)

Santa's have invaded NY.

We decided to eat at Sakagura, which was where we were supposed to eat last weekend when my uncle came to visit. Wow, the entire meal was umami heaven. When I was a kid and we learned about 'taste buds', I always knew there was another taste. I always called it the 'meat tastebud'. The Japanese claim to have discovered it, but I in fact discovered it in second grade!

On Sunday, we went to Nan Xiang Soup Dumpling House in Flushing, queens. Soup dumplings have to be one of my most favorite things to eat.

Weekend in NYC- (12/01/11)

We had the most amazing dinner at Soba Tato.  It was a soba and yakitori bar by Grand Central Station.  We had plans to go to another restaurant, but we had to change plans when my uncle decided to join us for dinner. I'm glad he joined us, otherwise I wouldn't have enjoyed such a delicious dinner.

On Saturday, we had an engagement party at, Macando, which is a tapas restaurant in the East Village. The food was good, but its hard to figure out how much food to order off a tapas menu so that everyone gets a taste.

Me: Cause is when something happens and effect is why it happens. I am going to tell you some causes and you will tell me the effects.

Noah studies for the spelling test all week.

Orlando: The effect is that he will be very tired.

Thanksgiving Weekend 2011

Our Thanksgiving meal was a hit! Our 24 lb turkey cooked in under three hours, so we turned the oven down to 200 and kept it warm. Surprisingly we didn't dry it out.

As I was working on my indoor garden,  I bent down to get some rocks.  Suddenly I heard a loud RIPPPPPP.  My butt felt cooler and I realized that I had ripped my favorite jeans.  So, so sad.
