Cooking the Noodles of Life!

My life seems to be a bit of a cycle thus far. I’ll go about my usual livelihood dabbling, meet a gnarly as heck chick, start dating said gnarly as heck chick and then part ways with them sometime after. And everytime it ends, I always find myself back at a stove, cooking my feel-good food. 
Ramem noodles! Or ‘lifenoodles’as I like to call them. 

You’d never think that any dude would be happier to be behind a stove, stirring into a boiling pot with an overhead fan blasting their ears with low pitch white noise but here I am! Indulging in the preparation of my ’75 cent per packet’ respite! 

My own noodly sanctuary!

A Year Later & Still Pressing On!

One year ago, a young man who was so miserably lost and frighteningly anxious emerged from the soul crippling darkness that shrouded the land which he tread. Thankfully, WordPress was there like a gleaming new bicycle. One with a darkness repelling squeezy horn. This metaphorical bike in all it’s new and wondrous glory was the shit. The bike took him to wonderful new places to read the stories of interesting people while telling a story of his own. And although he came to ride his bicycle less frequently than he used to, he still cherished it with all of his heart.

And that soul WASN’T Dandy. Because that man would’ve asked for a plasma powered hoverboard that plays 80s synth wave music at max volume while it’s ridden.

Over the past year, I have been fortunate to come across a lot of awesome blogs on here. And even more so to be followed by the writers of said blogs. Never in a million years would I have thought that somebody that writes a daily blog for a living or hobby would even give an ounce of a chicken wing as to what I posted on a blogging site. And I really am super thankful that they do continue to follow/read my content. So to you, the reader, I give you two thumbs up, a chicken and garlic sauce kebab and about 50 hi-fives. You seriously rock!

But during this past year, I have discovered many things that have contributed to my overall understanding of the world … just not to a deep or meaningful degree. Most of it is stuff to avoid, really. So apart from how to actually blog, Dandy learnt:

1 – That life without social networking is bloody fantastic

Technically, this one has hypocrisy smeared all over it in butterscotch tinted gunk. A blogging platform is form of social network. But what I meant was that life is bloody fantastic WITHOUT the likes of the Facebooks or the Twitters or anything along those lines. You become so bloody surprised as to how darn productive (and positive about life) you can be without those psyche sucking cesspits. And speaking of cesspits …

2 – That everyone should stay the hell away from DeviantArt

You might want to really get your art out there but please, don’t do it via DeviantArt. Hell, being a browser in most cases is even worse. You type in one thing and then all of a sudden, you’re scrolling through the results while occasionally bumping into the rabid hoards of questionably aged, half naked, horrific anime-esque original character pictures. Somebody needs to call a bloody gardener because this place has some outta control weeds.

3 – Chips can somehow taste like a scent of shit 

I really don’t know how it can even be a conceivable thought that a cup of chips from a reasonably respectable vendor can taste like the scent of shit or some kind of horrifyingly odorous garbage. Not only did it put me off of chips for good but now I avoid that particular vendor like Stallone avoids talking about his earliest film.

4 – Video games are pretty bloody disappointing these days 

It pains me more than anything to say this but honestly, for the past two years, video games have been lacking to the point of new and exciting upcoming releases are speculated and sometimes proven to be nothing more than a sorry sack of false promises. The biggest example of this that I can think of off the top of my head was Destiny. Just … fucking Destiny!

5 – That I somehow hadn’t seen The Breakfast Club up until now

Yeah, a few weeks ago, I made a conscious effort to finally watch this movie, even though sitting through a film without throwing myself up into some kind of spontaneous action that doesn’t involve gawking at a screen is a Herculean effort to the likes of myself. But by golly am I glad that I actually took the time to watch this 80s ode to the ‘coming-of-age’ genre. That and the kid in the denim jacket is funny. Most likely a potential sociopath but funny.

Hell, that’s just five. I’ve got pages of these …

I wont bore you for any longer. But I would like to extend a huge thank you out to all of my followers, current or former, for taking the time to read my blog and help me along my quest for some kind of inner peace. I hope you all have yourselves the most wonderful day that anyone could ever have.

Stay safe, and be good!

Squid Sushi Supreme-O

I’ve encountered a lot of strange things during my casual cuisine focused expeditions. I’ve been the victim of chips that tasted like the scent of human feces, stuffed crust cheese pizzas with extra cheese and beer battered tofu. Tofu, I tell ya! 

Honestly, it doesn’t sound all that special. Squid sushi, I mean. 

But for some reason, it blew me away. Such a bloody obvious combination of excellence and I didn’t possess the imagination to picture it beforehand. Quite simply put, it was yummo! So next time you take the chums out for a food romp, be sure to keep an eye our for the illustrious Squid Sushi! 

It has the Dandy Non-Speciifc Seal of General Excellence.

The Two Decade Milestone

A quarter of my dementia free life is over!

"You could've waited until AFTER I wanted to take a photo."
“You could’ve waited until AFTER I wanted to take a photo.”

it’s almost surreal. To think that ten years ago, I was some super skinny loser with ghostly white skin who sat at their grandparent’s place, PlayStation controller in hand firmly while zealously blasting away at all things robot in one of four major Mega Man titles released for the CD-ROM based destroyer.

Good to know that some things will never change with age, hey?

Remove the ghostly whiteness of the skin and replace the PS1 controller with the ergonomically more suitable XBONE gamepad and you can paint the same picture a decade onwards.

Eating a National Hero

Oh, Skippy. I’m so sorry, mate!

"Quick! Eat him before he drowns you!"
“Quick! Eat him before he drowns you!”

When I was a little tyke, I often got stuck with my parents while they were out on their afternoon grocery shopping. If someone complements me on my photographic memory of our local supermarket, I can say that I owe it all to my years worth of aisle plundering. I remember back when a young Dandy spotted a rather dark reddish oddity near the butcher, neatly cut and tough looking pieces of lean meat.

Kangaroo meat, it was.

I remember shooting my parents the “Yo, is this fo’ shizzle?” look to which they absently responded with a casual “Well, yeah …” as if it were common practice. But to me, this was an act of barbarism that I hadn’t even heard about. And as time went on, I found out more and more about the consumption of roo meat Down Under. Something told me that I would eventually try it.

Nothing told me that today would be that day.

Kangaroo sausages: Tough and spicy! They weren’t half bad and they didn’t taste that much different to all the other red meats out there. In fact, if you handed someone a kangaroo steak and didn’t tell them it was the meat of said animal, then they’d probably just shrug it off as chomp down on it like it was lamb or beef.

Although, to be completely honest with you, it feels kind of wrong to be eating the meat of an animal that is considered a national icon … Oh well. Just be glad that Koala meat isn’t a thing. You’d probably die after consumption due to the toxic amount of eucalyptus that’s probably in it or something …

The Two For One Day Deal

Now with the added benefit of an afternoon siesta!

"My face when the breakfast BLT and spiced chai was worth the sleep deprivation."
“My face when the breakfast BLT and spiced chai was worth the morning sleep deprivation.”

I was up all night with a couple of pals. Of course, by writing this, I bet you can assume that there was absolutely no sleep to be had. So you imagine how sleep deprived we were when we woke up and shuffled out to town for pancakes. I think one of my buddies actually was dead and that his corpse was just continuing to walk like it didn’t know any differently. But after breaking to head back to our separate domains that afternoon, most of us found ourselves falling asleep as soon as it hit 12 only to wake up two or three hours later feeling much better. But at the same time, our perception of time was absolutely warped beyond repair for that day and we were under the severe delusion that two days had passed when it really was only one.

Yeah, so that’s how my vacation is going along. What about yours?

I’d really like to take the time to try and get back into regular blogging and more importantly, catching up on the blogs I’m following on the Reader. I mean, what if the blogs that I frequent have written a significant post that I haven’t read? Like, what if one of those bloggers that I have followed had a pizza party? Or built a chain saw car? Or had their pizza party inside a chain saw limousine? Because  I would totally want to know about that!

Anyways; I would like to wish you all a wonderful day and hope that you eat plenty of yummy food and see plenty of lovely stuff. Talk about funny things and daydream about gnarly ideas. Like pizza cars.

bai bai  (=^w^=)
