You're so far away
doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore
it would be so good to see your face at my door
Doesn't help to know that you're so far away
-rememberances of a Carol King song

I had a rough day. But you know, still alive, right? What do I really have to complain about?

Is there anything more annoying than getting the hiccups? I mean seriously.

The show Southland is awesome. I love me some Ben McKenzie. For shizzle. I think he's got a real acting career ahead of him.

You know when you feel like you've got so much to give, if only someone will give you a chance? Or just, you know, if you could really just have the time to give to it, you could really do something amazing? Yeah. Right?

Life, man. I miss Michael Jackson already. Life is just a series of deaths, followed by your own. I guess. depressing and shit. What can I say, Disintegration is my favorite The Cure song.

It's not Monday, but here is some Soba.

OK, so it's been a while since I've posted. I keep forgetting, and then I think, I'll wait til next Monday, and then I forget again. So its not Monday, but I'll post today because I remembered. And hopefully I'll remember next Monday, since that is the day I set for myself to post to this blog.

I thought today I'd share one of my favorite type of dishes, a big ol' bowl of noodle soup. This is something that is so easy to cook, and you can use up random veggies that are hiding out in your fridge or add chicken or fish or beef or tofu or whatever.

So it's real simple, cook your noodles according to package directions, in this bowl I used soba, but you could use udon, or any type of Asian style noodles. Then get some veggies (or meat if you're using that) going in a pot in some oil, saute 'em for a minute, and then add your broth, get it all nice and hot, throw your cooked noodles in a bowl, scoop some veggies/meats on top, pour some broth over, add some cilantro, green onion, sesame seeds and/or lime, and there you go. Delicious bowl of noodles!

Team it up with a little of my favorite hot sauce, Sriracha, and some gyoza (I love that I live so close to one of the raddest Asian markets ever!) and you have a meal that will leave your belly full and happy.
