Lately I’ve actually been using the perfume I own. :) Today I put Hypnotic Poison (by Dior) on my wrists before we went out to eat as a family for dinner.
Dinner kind of sucked, ahah. We went to the same place… my mum likes going to that place all the time. It’s a Vietnamese restaurant. Don’t get me wrong, I love Vietnamese food. But I like to try new things as well, and because we go to this place all the time, I was to try something different, and that “something different” isn’t always great. My brother takes the safe option of fried rice and pork chops. My dad usually doesn’t really care. My mum is picky. :P
Usually we choose a dish each and then split it up so we get a taste of everything. But no one likes anything I try… LOL.
I’ve had bad experiences the last few times I’ve tried new things at this restaurant. I liked the sound of noodles with shredded pork. It was great, but the vegetables on the dish sucked. Lots of bean sprouts and mint leaves and things. It was seasoned badly, I guess. The noodle itself and the pork wasn’t so bad!
Another time (which was only last week) I ordered raw salmon salad. I just wanted the taste of raw salmon (which I like). But the salad was balls. It had apple along with some pieces of ginger and… overall, too much vinegar. :(
My mum said I chose “the wrong stuff”. Well I wanted to try something new, can’t blame me if it happens to taste bad.
Today I ordered rice rolls with pork. Hmm, I didn’t quite know what it would look like. But it just looked like huge rolls of noodles. I was amused. I actually liked it as well, and the vegetables weren’t terrible. XD
So, back to perfume. I’m not really into makeup or anything, but I’ve got a random bunch of perfumes. The other day I put on the Beyond Paradise perfume James got for me last Christmas. :D
In other “today” news, I got a distinction in an assignment I got today. I’m so proud! It was something that needed a lot of research and was like an essay. I usually don’t do well in those. Woooo. /bounce
Lilian and I were also talking about backmasking in songs. She discovered a list of backmasked messages in songs. We were just discussing some funny backwards messages in songs. It creeped us out a little, especially the one in Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin.
The funniest was in a Weird Al Yankovic song, “Wow, you must have an awful lot of free time on your hands.”
Yes… who plays music backwards? ELO’s Fire On High has a backwards message, “The music is reversible, but time… is not. Turn back! Turn back! Turn back! Turn back!”
Time isn’t reversible… better not waste time. Hurr hurr.
