Advice and Style

So, as it turns out, when I give out advice, I give out pretty good advice. As a result of this, I used to be approached pretty regularly for advice. Then everything slowed down. I have "attitude problems" and am a "Jerk", whatever all that is.

Anyway, I decided to sum up all of my advice in one blog, which'll show up on my real blog in a bit...

Here we go:
Don't date bad people. And you know bad people. They are those who have bad habits, bad friends, and don't seem to take care of themselves. People who are known for drinking, drugs, promiscuity, all that.

If you feel like you don't belong, you probably don't. But that shouldn't stop you from having fun. Learn to ACT! Pretend like you belong, and then make everyone realize that, Wow!, your pretty awesome. How, you ask? Play it smart. Don't focus on yourself, be friendly, and don't talk like a moron...

Cleanliness is next to godliness. I cannot stress this enough. If your sitting at home, cleaning or not doing anything, it's okay to be a bit dirty or a little smelly. But SHOWER whenever you get the chance, or if you think you might be going out. Wash your hair, body, condition, trim nails, shave or trim whatever you shave or trim. Image is everything, with others AND yourself.

When in doubt, ask yourself... WWKD? What would Keala do? And this means no drugs, little or no alcohol unless friends I trust are there, and when in doubt, RUN LIKE HELL.

Yeah, other then that, I've decided to watch more television. Why, you ask? Why, when I have YouTube and stuff to entertain my happy ass? Why, for style! Look at the way people dress, don't emulate but imitate. Like I said before, Image is EVERYTHING. You may not care what other people think, but other people do. If you look good, feel good, and are clean, then hot damn! Your hittin' 900, kid!

That being said, my style is still jeans, collared t-shirts, off brand running shoes... mp3 player...

That's about it.

OH YEAH!!! Jim Carrey can SING like a PRO.

The Titan Project

So, there is this Missile Base up by Larson in Washington State. It up for sale. It used to be 3 missile silo's and the accompanying above and below ground buildings and such. It really is quite neat. And is rather interesting as far as the possibilites...
Oh, you want a link? Sure, we can do that for you.

Anyway, I got really excited about possible ways to raise 300,000 dollars for the down payment, and to keep up with the necessary payments. I don't think it can be done. But anytime you attempt to make or get 300,000 dollars, even if you fail to get it, it's still money that you've made or whatever.

Me and Erlic of Erlic Empires, to which I'll post a link of whatever he wants me to later, are going to attempt to buy the missile base...

So, I've been neglecting my duties. Not only have I not blogged in awhile, but I haven't addressed one of the most important topics: FOOD.

Now, one might say, that is not so important. Go without it for a few days.
The edibility of a food is directly proportional to each factor of a food:
DANGER: Fugu is a poisonous blow fish stuff. It's tasty, good for you, but if not properly prepared, a hallucinogenic highly deadly toxin.
TASTE: Soy cubes of Tofu are very very safe. And very very very good for you. And taste like bland met a boring woman and had a retarded child.
NUTRITION: Twinkies are delicious, and pretty safe. But they hold no nutrional value of note, other then straight life saving calories.

Now, this is all super random. But that's me... And a guy I've kinda gotten to know has started a wine blog and broached the wine pairings topic. This reminded me of fooooooooood...

Now, gluttony is not one of my vices. Rather the opposite. I eat, then I don't. Sometimes I eat very little in a day, despite the fact that people are eating and cooking and offering food to me all the time. Sometimes I'll cook something myself and not eat it.

But if something is worth doing, it's worth going overboard a little.

Now, let me tell you guys something. Cooking is not about perfect measuring. It's not about exact times. It's not about fancy words... even though rotisserie roasting something is still good, and a rue is still the best word for a sauce base... But each person has a different recipe for the same thing. Even coffee. Why? TASTE. Cooking is all about taking something non-dangerous and nutritional, sticking it with other things, and making the natural tastes better. OR NOT!!! Take a plain piece of cow, throw it on a steel grill over a fire... mmmm...

I'm just going to touch a broad range of my strategy.

Point ONE: Spices are good, but not too important. The Overboard lesson here is very important. You can spice something, you can go overboard, but you should NEVER overspice. A few good spices to choose are rosemary and garlic, and of course salt and pepper. Some people like light spice, some people put more pepper on their salad then I put in my cooking period.

Point TWO: Just because something burns doesn't mean it's bad. A little bit of black is pretty good, especially when your dealing with sugar or other sweet things. Barbecue especially, you want that stuff to burn the sauce a bit. It caramelizes the sugar, and makes the meat soak a little more of the flavor. But again, there is the Overboard rule. I like my barbecue chicken to be black, but not charred and flaky. Some people seem to be violently allergic to anything even remotely black...

Point THREE: Starchy foods. Pasta's, Potatoes, Rice (to break up the alliteration), and Breads. If you can't figure out something to go with that soup, Bread is your best friend. Cooking strong flavored foods? Potatoes or Rice! Pasta's there to compliment any complicated dish. This is one of the few overboard exempt rules! GO PEDDLE TO THE METAL! Worst comes to worst, you have some spare potatoes, rice, pasta, or bread. And gosh, what will you do with it? I vote eat it... Because starchy foods are really good for people who are attempting to become healthier. They don't turn into fat as fast as fat, and they burn really well for people with high activity levels. Sports or Marathons, or even if your just jumping out a womens window and running from angry boyfriends, starches give you the energy you need!

As to what you should drink with anything, Half the Bottle Down should be doing wine pairings eventually. Soda's are pretty smart, as they are pretty common. And for those really good days, Lemonade or Tea...
