Journal Entry #151

Happy Friday, friends!

Yesterday, boyfriend had to go to work. I tried making this weirdo vegan meal I got from My Vegan Cuts snack box:


It turned out better than I thought it would but the the soy “meat” pieces were a bit disturbing to me after a couple bites because of the weird bouncy texture… no matter how well the seasonings made it taste exactly like steak, I couldn’t continue eating it.

I ended up just heating up some leftovers and happily ate that in front of the first episode of The Good Place Season 03. I removed my old nail polish, filed my nails, and painted them all with a base coat but, felt it was getting too late to apply color.

Boyfriend got home as I was waiting for the base to dry. I watched a couple episodes of Atypical Season 02 and was so absorbed, I almost stayed home from work to watch more but, knew that would have been an irresponsible decision lol. I did my makeup after we smoked a blunt together.

Before he dropped me off at work, we went to the Hustler Hollywood store because I wanted to buy some thigh-high socks since I hadn’t painted my toe nails. πŸ˜‰ While I was shopping around, these two women (I think they were a couple) stole a dildo!!! The lady worker in high heels ran after them shouting, “we have cameras and your license plate number! We’re calling the police!” and the rest of the employees ran out after them, too but, the couple was able to get away, I guess! They left their car running in the parking lot so, they had def planned their shenanigans before they walked in.

I got to work around midnight, it was a steady crowd that died down quickly. I left at almost 3 AM and am really hoping for a busy night tonight!!

Today, boyfriend had the day off so we went out to eat. I saw this new Vietnamese restaurant opened up in Chinatown called Co Anh on Yelp.


It was small but, cute and very new-looking:


For our appetizer, we shared a Pork Banh Bao:


I thought the egg inside of it was kind of nasty and hard for some reason but, the rest of it was yum.


Boyfriend ordered the Beef Satay Sauce Noodle Soup or something like that. πŸ˜› It was tasty but, it wasn’t all the way hot (as in temperature) though, I was jealous of the noodles that he had and the flavor of his broth was better, too.


I almost accepted his offer to switch but, his had spiciness in it that I knew I’d regret having later. My self-control was strong but, also, I was quite turned off by the cold parts of the broth I had LOL.


My Beef Stew Soup was alright; it had such wonderful pieces of beef in it but, they went way overboard with the MSG– it was almost all I could taste. The broth wasn’t thick and beefy like I prefer; it was more of a pho broth, if you ask me… and I hate the little thin noodles (like in the photo above) SO MUCH! Thick noodles are life.

I don’t think we’d return for any of their noodle dishes but, I saw their Banh Mi sandwiches and they have been mentally added on my TO EAT list lol.

After dinner, we went to get our espressos from Starbucks. I used to ask for “less than half a pump of vanilla” in my 4 shots of espresso but, the past few times it has tasted like a whole lot more than that so now, I’m drinking straight espresso over ice like boyfriend does. It’s strong but, much much MUCH better than an overly sweetened drink.

Then, we drove to the dispensary and there was a sale! πŸ˜€ Woo-hoo! When we got home, I pretty much hopped on here right away to check my comments and then started typing this.

Hope you all have an awesome weekend!!

  1. Some fascinating articles about “The Good Place” have been popping up on the Internet. One of them called it the best fusion of TV’s demands for entertainment and a moral lesson ever invented. It took me a while to get into it, but wow, the pay off at the end of S1 was worth it!

  2. Omg that is just too much about the dildo stealing. lmao People are crazy. Really thin noodles are my favorite! I do like thick noodles as well (like the noodles in fettuccine alfredo and the thick curly noodles in beef stroganoff, for example). Medium sized noodles, like what would be used in spaghetti or lo mein are actually my least favorite. LOL I thought I was the only one who has preferences when it comes to different sized noodles. πŸ˜›

    1. I know!! I was laughing so hard… I couldn’t believe they would steal a dildo & not just on a whim either… they went in there knowing they were going to do that LOL!

      Hahah yes!! I am SO picky about my noodle sizes!! πŸ˜› Thick noodles are my all-time fave, medium is okay but if there’s any option to make them fat noodles I’m definitely changing it lol.

  3. Lol- β€œweirdo vegan meal” that made me laugh! I totally know what you mean about the bouncy texture. That is totally what most faux vegan meat is like.

    I love bao so much. It’s my new obsession.

    You get four shots of espresso?! Dang, lady! I would have a heart attack haha… although I think I probably did have that much in college (and wondered why I could never sleep, ha!). Have a great week, Hunida!

    1. Ahh!! Yeah, the bouncy texture really threw me off. πŸ˜› Sorry I called it “weirdo”!! ❀ ❀

      Isn't Bao sooo delicious?! πŸ˜€ I've loved 'em since I was a kiddo!! I love how available they are in restaurants now!

      4 shots is crazy, right? Sometimes I get a bit shaky but, it goes away & then, I feel like an energizer bunny!! I need it to stay up for work, you know?! I started off with 2 a couple years ago but, I stopped feelin' it & I'm up to 4 now!! Yikes!!

      1. Bahhaa don’t apologize! I love it because it’s soooo TRUE!

        It is the best- I crave bao. That texture, that flavor- everything about it. UGH! I need it in my life.

        Lol- I admire you for handling those shots so well! It makes sense- if I was a night nurse I think I would need alll that espresso too. I remember the night shift would come in with alll the energizing drinks ! it’s so funny how bodies build up tolerances to things too.

        1. I admire YOU for the eating the bouncy meat on the regular! & I love that you love baos. πŸ˜€ Not everyone likes them!! You are lucky to not be a night nurse, babe!! ❀ I wish our bodies wouldn't do that building up tolerance stuff, to be honest LOL.

  4. Hahaha my gosh that’s so funny about the dildo! XD People are just insane.
    We’ve watched the first episode of The Good Place but I’ve heard so much about it that I feel like I should watch more now, lol. πŸ˜‰

    1. RIGHT!! Who plans to steal a dildo?! LOL, I definitely gotta good laugh though. πŸ˜› You should totally watch more of The Good Place. My boyfriend said he wasn’t interested after we watched the first episode together but, he often laughs when I have it playing now!

      1. As frustrated as the store employees were, I’m sure some of them got a good laugh about it too! You just have to have a sense of humor about some things, lol.
        That’s good to know! The pilot is always a test-run anyway for shows so it doesn’t really give a good representation of the show most times. We’ll give it another shot!

        1. Ah yeah most of the employees were pissed but I could tell one guy wanted to laugh with us hahah. πŸ˜› I always base my opinion of a show on the first episode though– if I don’t like it, I can’t force myself to continue!!

  5. Is the first photo the vegan meal you were talking about? Doesn’t look very appetizing lol. And I cannot believe they stole a dildo lol. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    I had SB over the weekend and got the vanilla bean since I had to share with Ciel otherwise I would have gotten something else lol. Also, how far along are you in atypical? Almost done?

    1. Lol yeah that’s the vegan meal. πŸ˜› It was pretty much just a bunch of mush!

      My boyfriend & I couldn’t stop laughing about the dildo thieves! Such a funny thing to steal…

      I love the Vanilla Bean from SB, it’s such a nice sweet treat. ❀ & I just watched last episode of Atypical last night!

      1. Eh… lol
        Right? I try not to get it often, so any other drink you recommend from SB I’m willing to try, Mackenzie also recommend Peete’s coffee but I haven’t seen one around here, maybe downtown Portland lol.

        1. Oo!! Starbucks has their seasonal drinks out now, the Maple Pecan in frappucino form is so very yummy. ❀ I think you'll love it!!

          I had never heard of Peet's until Mackenzie, too!! There's only ONE here & it's like a half hour away from us so I bought the coffee grounds from the store & I thought it was quite good but she said it would be better at the store, of course. πŸ˜›
