Rice shortage hits home in Seattle
my favorite quote about this, from citizen rain: "This sounds very elitist given the situation around the world, but could you imagine if Seattle sushi places run out of rice? (Shudder.) "
LOL (but not if i can't have my rice)
lupe and N.E.R.D also killed it. lupe always does though. why did the neptunes rock the joint even with only one new song? ballers! i could have done without rihanna, but jake's friend is one of her backup dancers and i am happy he's got such a great job

after almost a year of living here, we no longer have access to the wonderful world that is cable television. oh well! this is total flashback to the days when i lived in a shoebox of an apartment during freshman year, or the old casa de la paula y jess when all we'd do is watch movies and listen to music. i have a hard time remembering how we got by for years without cable tv, but i'm sure all that studying had something to do with it. hey i turned out alright, right? at first i was slightly panicking about not having tv, but really this is a blessing in disguise. we were watching too much tv anyways. now we have no choice but to read more, watch movies, eat, cook, go out, whatevs. tell you the truth, i think it'll be a nice break to not have tv for the next couple of months. until i start to miss the really stupid shit i hate to love, like keeping up with the kardashians LOL
