Happy Chinese New Year!!!

Year of the Tiger!
What a great evening. My bestest buddy Essie invited me to a Chinese New Year Dumpling Making Party at her house tonight. Her roommate Lin Lin, who is lovely, is from Taiwan so she wanted to host the party. Her family lives in Taiwan so she couldn't celebrate with them. Oh my goodness, it was so fun and delicious. We made about 400 dumplings altogether. The different flavors were pork, shrimp&spinach, mushroom, and assorted veggie. The assorted veggie was my favorite. It was a mixture of different root vegetables, ginger, garlic, & edamame. The wrappers were either whole wheat or spinach. Then there was a soy sauce or spicy sweet&sour sauce Lin Lin made for dipping. So stuffed and such good company. Sometimes its nice to go to a party where you really don't know many people and you make all new friends and acquaintances. Lovely, Lovely night.

Bird of the Day: Excitedly awaiting my order of clothing I ordered off line to be delivered. I rarely do that online shopping thing, but please a sweater with a whale on it, I couldn't resist.

Turd of the Day: My money managing skills really were sub-par this month. Im down to three dollars until I get paid this Tuesday. That's an all time low for me. Opps.
