Day 71-73: Shoes, Redwoods, and Cameras

Day 71 Payless had a 30%-off sale, and I had a coupon for another 25% off, and I got a gift card from Cardpool (referral link) for 20% less the face value, and I used Ebates (referral link) for 5% cash back; so, I went a little crazy. On one hand: I needed to replace some flats. On […]

When You Can’t Have a Real Washing Machine

 Before I started taking my laundry to a wash-and-fold, and after I spent many years at laundromats, I was using this little Haier washing machine in my apartment. You don’t need hook-ups to use it; the Haier attaches to a faucet with a hose, and you stick another hose down a drain for the dirty […]

Day 67-69: Honey Toast for Realz! [100HappyDays]

Day 67 Cute dogs are cute. Day 68 After that impostor honey toast on Wednesday, we had to go get some real honey toast from ETC Dessert Cafe in the Sunset. This is how honey toast should be: stacks of toasted bread brushed with honey as it became deliciously crunchy, hollowed out and cut up […]

Days 60-63: Daylight Savings

Day 60 Even without a drought, I think restaurants should do this–though the server at Farmer Brown gave us water anyway, without us asking. Day 61 I’ve written about YakiniQ before, right? All-you-can-eat Korean BBQ in San Francisco? We went on Saturday before catching the latest (and last?) Miyazaki, The Wind Rises. Both were A+. There is […]

Cheez-It Pepper Jack [#100HappyDays]

Remember when Cheez-Its came only in yellow cheese flavor? (Come on, you know they didn’t use real cheese.) Then, eons later, white cheddar Cheez-Its appeared on the shelves, then Duoz that had both flavors, and now… Pepper Jack. Hallelujah, the Lord has risen! The box proclaims, “made with 100% real cheese”, and they actually taste […]

Day 54-56: Food and a Cat [100HappyDays]

Day 54 At Honeyberry in Berkeley, they have a scrumptious dessert called “snow cups.” They’re like shaved ice but, instead of crunchy bits of ice, you get ground ice that melts in your mouth and requires no chewing. They flavor it with yogurt (called “milky”), vanilla, and honeydew, etc. I’ve only had the milky cup, […]

This Isn’t What It Looks Like [100HappyDays]

Sigh, I’m back to my 100HappyDays being pictures of food–but! Today’s picture isn’t about the food (butter ramen from Sapporo-ya; it was fine but nothing I’m going to spend my time writing about). It represents my night, a moment during dinner with one of my oldest and closest, followed by dessert and three hours of […]
