May Random Amusements

weather: mostly cloudy but really warm
outside: 20.5°C
mood: cheerful
  • AHAHAHAHA!! XD Nestea Chai milk tea mix. I tried one today and it tastes exactly like tomato beef noodles!!! =D =D It's all the star anise in it. That was way too funny. I also ruined a Cow-Orker Girl's morning cuppa. She didn't think of it until I said it. XD

  • We sometimes pronounce ISO-4217 currency codes as words. CAD and ZAR are easy. AUD could be something like "Audi". The € is EUR and every time I see it, in my head, I pronounce it like someone throwing up. =) *EEEEEUUUUUUUURRRRR*

  • My Hogwart's Reputation

    Quiet Nerd
    House: Ravenclaw
    Best Friend: Hermione. [From the descriptions below, it sounds like Fred and George should be my best friends... I think that would rock!]

    Harry: Wants you to speak up more during class because he loves your voice and thinks you are quite intelligent.
    Ron: Hopes that you get less like Hermione as you get older.
    Hermione: Loves that you study as much as she does.
    Oliver Wood: Doesn't know who you are.
    Fred and George Weasley: Try to get you to play pranks with them to crack your tough shell.
    Seamus Finnigan: Doesn't bother trying to get to know you.
    Neville Longbottom: Is too busy dreaming about Ginny.
    Dean Thomas: Bought you a book for Christmas because he had a crush on you.
    Ginny Weasley: Tried to burn that book so that you would have more time to spend on being normal. [If she succeeds, she dies. Knowingly and purposely destroying books is a capital offence.]
    Parvati Patil: Is always too busy flirting with the Gryffindor boys to notice you.
    Padma Patil: Same as Parvati.

    Cedric Diggory: Doesn't know who you are.

    Cho Chang: Same as Cedric.

    Draco Malfoy: Picks on you as often as possible because he knows it hurts your feelings. [Yeah, I let him think that. =)]
    Crabbe: Don't know you.
    Goyle: Same as Crabbe.
    Pansy Parkinson: Is always picking on you with Draco.
    Marcus Flint: Wants to be smart like you, but knows he can't so he makes fun of you for it.
    Blaise Zabini: Is the only Slytherin who's somewhat nice to you.

    Dumbledore: Tries to get you to like new things so that you won't be so shy.
    Professor McGonagall: Likes how you don't talk during class.
    Professor Flitwick: Knows you are afraid of showing your true skills in class and tries to get you to demonstrate them in class.
    Professor Trelawney: Predicts a lonely life for you. [What a fruitcake.]
    Professor Snape: Forgets your name on a daily basis.
    Filch: Doesn't even know you exist. [Which is a good thing.]

    Take the quiz here.

I do the same thing with USD, AUD and EUR. Except that my EUR word is distinctly flavoured by the Italian-speaking environment (that being Italy, hehe) I was in when I first encountered and started using it.

USD - Yuuuuuzdi.
AUD - Audi, or sometimes just even Aud.
EUR - Owro (I really have no clue how to render that into "sounds like", hehe).

Do you like Chai? My mother is a huge fan, and so is my boyfriend. It's a pity that sending food is limited, let alone sending tea leaves (who knows what customs might think it was) or I would send you a packet of my mother's favourite. It's not a pre-mix, so I heat it in milk over the stove and then let it rest in coffee plunger for a minute or so before serving.

My ex boyfriend had not encountered Chai until we were most of the way through our relationship. And even then, it wasn't through me. Lipton produced a Chai flavoured pre-mix for tea (just add water) but he was working alone in a small tea/coffee outlet and decided to try it. Instead of reading the instructions, and without being familiar at all with Chai and what it is, he decided it must have been a flavouring to add to coffee (much like the liqueur-style flavourings some coffee bars sell as additions to the basic cup of coffee). You can imagine the results. He, and his friend who had stopped by just in time to witness the experiment, where distinctly unimpressed. I gather that neither has touched Chai since (a pity, I think, but understandable).

It's approximately "ey-oo-ro". =)

I like Chai once in a while, but I'm still a green tea type =)

Ey-oo-ro ... yes, that's it perfectly. :)

Ah. Yes, with my mother, she loves Chai, but if it isn't Chai, it's green tea :) I prefer green tea too.

I somehow got outspoken psycho bitch or whatever it was, just for flipping off the quiet girl. She punked out on me.

I think it's hilarious that Snape talks about Ms./r. but you're crushing on guys only.
