Friday Fill-In #128

bubble tea
A couple weekends ago Miami and I took a day trip to Seattle.  We had “noods” (Miami’s name for noodles) at Uwajimaya’s, poked around the Kinokuniya Bookstore for a long time, and goggled at all the asian produce.  I also tasted my very first bubble tea as evidenced by the photo above.  Can you tell that I just threw up a little?  Sorry all you bubble tea lovers out there, but I have to say, this is just about the grossest thing I’ve tasted in a long time.  Those “pearls” are just so wrong on so many levels.  Imagine not-so-delicious gummy bears that taste like absolutely nothing, but yet somehow find a way to be vile flavored, being sucked up into your unsuspecting mouth while you are casually sipping a tasty pineapple slushy.  Quite the nasty surprise.  But now I finally know what all the fuss is about.
It’s been quiet here at the bloggy because I’ve been doing 2-a-days with the workout program.  I run a couple miles on the treadmill in the morning and then ride my bike with R. Darling while he runs in the evenings.  It’s not every day, but it does take a lot out of me and I never seem to have enough time during the day to do everything that I usually do.  So, the blog languishes.  But this weekend R. Darling is taking me on a secrety squirrel surprise getaway so I will hopefully have some fun things to share when we get back.  I know there is a massage and creatures involved (but not at the same time, cause that’s not how we roll).  I’m SO looking forward to this.  I sorely need a vacation but we just won’t be able to go on one until much later this year.  This will be a nice substitute.  Thanks honey!
And since I’ll be gone, I’ll leave this for you before I head out of town tomorrow:

  1. I actually can tell that you threw up a bit! That sounds absolutely gross…..not a big fan of textural drinks anyhoo.

    Have a great weekend……..hey, are you sayin’ there’s something WRONG with creatures and massages at the same time?

  2. I LOVE those tapioca pearl balls! Oddly enough, I don’t like most of the teas because they are too sweet. Sometimes I can find a shop that actually makes fresh brewed tea and not use the syrups or anything and can still add the pearls. I just love sucking them up individually into the straw and into my mouth.
    Okay — that’s probably grossed you out even more.

  3. You can get bubble tea at the teahouse on Kellog-you should go there from work one day. I think I saw Sergio going into work today-now I have a face for the name. Have a great weekend! It sounds exciting. TC

  4. I have yet to try bubble tea, and now you got me curious to see if I’ll have the same reaction you had to it…
    I hope you had a very enjoyable getaway!
