(Recipe can be found at this old post from February)
Yesterday I went to my friend Kim's house to hang out...
Kim, my new friend Kirstie, and I had stereotypical girl talk including boys, hair, and in my case, food. We picked up dinner from 'Panera Bread' and watched two of my favorite classic movies ever (which neither Kierstie nor Kim have ever seen....bunch of weirdos I tell you!)
1st movie - Poltergeist
2nd movie - Jaws
I've seen this movies hundreds of times throughout my life- and i'm used to watching them with people who have seen them hundreds of times as well. So it was really cool to watch them with two people who have never seen them before - I really enjoyed it.
I've been wanting to do something drastic with my hair for a while....
because i'm in this sort of "transitional" time of my life - where I want everything to change...including the mop atop my head.
While hanging out with the girls last night - they told me they wanted to do the same thing. We've all been flirting with the idea of going....::gulp::.....blond.
Yes me...dark haired/featured Jenna has been thinking about going blond. Why? I have no idea...something different I suppose. I love my hair but it's looked exactly the same (minus the length) for the past 6 or 7 years.
Kim told me a few days ago that she was also thinking about going blond (kim is half korean with dark hair/features and a very light skin tone like me). It is kind of a crazy idea for us super dark haired gals to want to "cross over" but it's just hair. If it looks good - great - if it looks terrible we can always dye it back!
I think Kim is more serious about the blond thing than I am ...and to be quite honest she is 10x ballsier than I am- I just don't have the guts to do it lol. I think in the long run i'll be all talk and no action in this situation.
But I do want to make a major change of some sort. I'm definitely not going to straighten or anything like that...but I have been flirting with the idea of getting it cut like one of my favorite singers and curly heads - St. Vincent.....
Even if you aren't apart of the "twitter world" like I am...
I still think you'll find this segment on 'Late night with Jimmy Fallon' hilarious.
While going through my daily "blog check" today I came across a lot of pictures that I find interesting, cool, beautiful, and wonderful in one way or another:
Well it's time to bid yee fairwell.
I have a lot of summery activities planned for my day off! So I better get started before my day passes me by! I hope you enjoy your friday - eat something delicious, and do something fun :)

CONSUMERS STILL SKITTISH ABOUT GULF SEAFOOD
“The oil well's essentially been plugged. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has reopened large swaths of Gulf Coast waters to fishing. And the Food and Drug Administration said last week that fish from specific state waters are safe to eat. So why aren't people eating it?
Smith, who heads the Louisiana Seafood Promotion & Marketing Board, says despite the fact that Gulf seafood is receiving more scrutiny than ever, people see the computer image of gushing oil 24 hours a day, and they draw their own conclusions.
Tom McEachern, top chef at seafood-centric Ray's on the River in Atlanta put it bluntly to Morning Edition Host Renee Montagne:
After the spill, he said, "we literally removed the word 'Gulf' from our menu, we also removed the oysters that we were serving from the Gulf from our menu."
Partly because he just can't get Gulf oysters, and partly because his customers are concerned about the potentially lasting problems with contamination in the beds and the marshlands where oysters hang out.”
