Yummy Wakame Weblog

no rain cloud ever ruled the sky
without first defying the sun
no flower ever bloomed
without daring to break the seed
no baby chick was ever born
without daring to leave the shell
no painter ever achieved a masterpiece
without facing a blank canvas first
no climber ever viewed the top of Everest
without leaving the safety of the ground floor
no answer has ever been right
before risking it might be wrong
no happiness has ever been gained
without memories of pain being lost
the first I love you said to a friend
was given before confirmed by the other
no lovers' lips ever touched
without daring the space in between
weak individuals dare not fail
great individuals dare succeed
Scroll down and check out the movie! This is a fascinating low-budget documentary explaining Capitalism. It's got me thinking...
"There are 401 mystery wakame lovers visiting right now. Isn't this cosy?"
Olivia hasn't posted since last tuesday. Please tell us she isn't front page news in the UK for something horrible!
"In the heart of Mali, West Africa there lives a tribe called the Dogon. Famous for their art and cosmology, they live around a 200-kilometer cliff band known as the Bandiagara.
In this week's PhotoVoyage, Aurora photographer Jos?zel documents the Dogon people of the sub-Sahara. Join the Dogon as they climb the cliffs for pigeon guano and dance an ancient Dama that connects their dead to the next world."
One of my absolute favourite CDs in my music collection is Mali Music - a world music side project for the Blur/Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn where proceeds from the album's sales benefit UNICEF. It's filled with the most beautiful happy tracks bursting with atmosphere from Kela Village layered with a western influence, each one totally unique in sound.
... A Girl's Guide To Geek Guys, but for the rest of you it's an invaluable resource on how to attract and keep your favourite geek.
"Of course the best way to meet a geek dude is through the Internet. All geeks harbor a secret fantasy about meeting some girl in cyberspace, carrying on an e-mail romance in which he has the chance to combine an activity he is comfortable with, computing, with one he is very uncomfortable with, socializing. To many geek dudes, cyberdating is just an advanced form of some kind of video game, but they are frustrated by a lack of players. Their lack is your strength."
"Mornings mean different things to different people. For many it’s the best part of the day when the air is fresh and the birds sing brightly. They jump out of bed at first light, make breakfast, read the morning paper and get ready for work.
Others can stay fully awake well beyond midnight, but snooze through three alarms in the morning and are forced to skip breakfast because they just can’t get out of the starting blocks quickly enough to arrive at work on time."
The BBC Sleep Profiler says I'm an "Owl":
"You are built to be at your best later in the day. Surprisingly, it also means your body clock is more flexible than people with standard or lark-like body clocks.
Ideally, people should wake at the same time everyday, but being an owl, you can probably cope quite well when your sleep pattern is disrupted."
Yep. I can change my sleeping patterns from one day to the next, although it was so unfun when I had a full-time job and had to go to bed before midnight and at the same time every single night.
To a supertaster like me, strong cheeses are often too much to swallow. Did you know that buyric acid is the chemical that gives strong cheeses and vomit their distinctive smell? To most people however, strong cheeses can smell delicious.
