1 Plate of Randomsauce

I was feeling all scholarly so I decided to coin a phrase. Plate of Randomsauce. For one, it sounds yummy…AND it fits the purpose of this post- a collection of random thoughts. So, not only am I coining a phrase with this post, I’m also starting a post series. “X Plate(s) of Randomsauce” Told you I was feeling scholarly- scholars are way ambitious.

So now that that’s out of the way… we can move on to more important things. Like. Tube Coffee.

I come from the land of Tim Hortons and the continent of Starbucks. But coffee never really got me excited. I mean, sure, I’d occasionally have a latte but it was never something I needed. Cut Tia from the Toronto doc. Paste Tia in the Korea doc. And all of a sudden, I can’t live without this stuff.  I’ve been having 3 cups… approx every 2 hours. And AND the cup says “maximize your happiness” So I figure I’m hitting two mangoes with one stone. Totally justified. And mangoes are delicious.

Moving right along, I know this has already been plastered all over my fb… but I want to do a blog-official-shout-out and CONGRATS to my bestest of Bests: MANJOT on passing his black belt. That’s right, virtual internet peeps. Don’t mess. I got legit-real-life backup.

Here’s a picture taken at his grading looking all Leo-in-the-departed meets Bruce-Lee-ish. I have no idea what I just described but I wanted it to sound gangsta.

It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside because for as long as I’ve known Manjot, getting his black belt has been a dream of his. And witnessing a best friend achieve his dream? Priceless.

Speaking of dreams, I recently caught up with a high school friend who’s getting hitched next year (knowing my obsession with weddings as conveyed in my previous post, I don’t need to tell you what the main topic of discussion was) but he did have this to say:

So ok. Maybe my feeling all scholarly had something to do with hearing Varunan’s dream. And maybe…just maybe, my book will be called A Plate of Randomsauce. Bam. Two mangoes, One stone. I’m on a roll today.

And just one more dallop of randomsauce: besides feeling scholarly, I’ve also been feeling pretty worldly recently. Here’s why:

If you don’t understand what this means, clearly you’re not worldly. Or scholarly. Booyah.
