Distracted #Cooking!

13 Aug

Lol πŸ˜› Decided to make my mom a treat the other day – #NoBake Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies.

To be fair to myself, I was also baking #stuffedpeppers, answering student messages, and finishing a major project for my MSc.

anyway, I was already experimenting a bit. No #butter, so I tried #CoconutOil. No #PeanutButter, so I made my own.

Got to taste them and mom’s like ‘these don’t taste right. . . ‘

Me: ‘Better term – They taste #disgusting 😱

Us: Why πŸ€”

Mom: Did you #cook them to a high enough temperature?πŸ™‚

Me: ❓❓❓ They don’t cook, they’re #nobake.

Mom: πŸ˜³πŸ™„

Me: Wait. . . . ‘checks recipe’ Well *&%$.

Hahahaha! They were supposed to be boiled, and I didn’t cook them at all. No wonder they were #terrible #spititout

Sure #Twitter – Seems legit

10 Aug

So. . . if I asked you who is trending in #sKorea on #Twitter What would you say? #BTS? 🎡 #KDrama? 🎞

Duh! How silly are you?!? Of Course it would be the #Dubai Police HQ! Like, I’m not even sure how you thought it would be someone else? πŸ€”

Congrats to them on the big event though!

#Vivaldi Browser Review (#2018)

10 Aug

Hey guys!

How are y’all doing today? Been a while since we really caught up, seriously.Β Β 

With all the chaos surrounding security with Google, Edge, and Firefox (also some problems I’ve been having with their formatting systems), I’ve been on the look out for a new go-to browser on my laptop.Β 

Oh, that’s right! I haven’t introduced you all toΒ  *Lassy the Laptop* ~ a new, super-awesome Samsung 9! She turns into a tablet AND is only about 2lbs to carry around (great for traveling). Lawrence the Laptop needed a new girlfriend (he’s a little old in the tooth and needed a young, hot babe to keep him active).Β  She cost me a fortune (gold digger!) ~ but was a much needed update.Β 

See the source image

Anyway, now that I have her up and running, I decided to try out a new browser I’ve been hearing about. Edge is driving me crazy (often crashes when I try closing a download pop-up and refuses to load address searches the first 2-3 times I input it) and I know Google is super un-secure. Then there’s Firefox — I was one of the early people on Firefox because it was fast. But over time it slowed down. I’ve heard they revamped it this year, so I’ll probably check it out later this week.Β 

The one I tried out today is called VivaldiΒ and is kind of cool.Β 

*Disclaimer ~ I am not a computerΒ guru.Β So I can’t speak to anything like security, ISPs, etc – I can fix almost all of my computer’s hardware, but I’m not a great software person. This is the initial perspective of an average person πŸ˜€Β Β 

According to my research, Vivaldi is known for giving the user complete control over the browser itself.Β  That’s impressively true!Β  Continue reading

Where do you want to display these awesome #backtoschool pillows! – China #haul

7 Aug

These #dentist pillows from Walmart in China were HUGE – came to my hips. . . They were in the #backtoschool supplies. I confess – I don’t see the point πŸ˜‚ To remind you kids when they wake up to brush their #teeth? For classsroom #decorations?

WHERE WOULD YOU PUT THEM?!?

Shopping at Samsung

1 Aug

Sooooo. I recently had to buy a new #laptop 😭 Lawrence the Laptop has a broken touchpad, broken microphone jack, crashing battery, a fan that’s competing with airplanes for loudest lift-off, and lose USB ports. Poor baby!

After exhaustive research I decidedto get a #Samsung notebook 9. At 13.3 inches and super lightweight, it’snice for travel. Unfortunately #Samsung US website SUCKS and I couldn’t get it ordered before my mom came to #China. So I thought, why not go to #Korea! I’m there on vacay – hone of #Samsung. No prob!

Big prob! The laptop was $400 more expensive for a lower quality product! Instead of i7 they had i5 and instead of 16RAM, it was 8RAM. 😑😑

BUT! I was headed to #China and had to have a computer, so I picked it up anyway. Lil – funniest thing. So, the dude waiting on me was the cutest guy. Very nice, good English, helpful. But I was complaining (spectacularly) about the price. So he promised to give me a gift 😬

My gift? – A selfie stick, a toothbrush holder (with toothbrush! woop!), and a car magnet πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ˜œπŸ˜ In fact, he gave me another set to my mom as well. Lololol. Not sure it was worth $400, but you know? I’m still laughing about it – so they’re probably #priceless.

Couple notes for potential expats:

1) Did you know many #computer products bought in the #US require that you keep the product in theUS to maintain warranty?
2) Your US warranty won’t always work abroad – #Dell won’t service my #laptop in #China even though it has centers here Cause I have a US warranty.
3) Foreign warranty’s may not be as good as the US version. So be careful before agreeing to transfer warranty from one country to another.
