drink soda not pop

Reasons the first Mythbusters episode is great:

-shoddy camera work bc they only had one or two cameras
-they decide to strap a JATO rocket to a Chevy Impala
-they call the actual Air Force and ask “hey can we have a JATO rocket” and because this is episode 1 the response they get is “… Why???? and who are you????”
-the dirt-cheap used car they buy (to strap a rocket to, of course) breaks down as they’re trying to drive it back to the warehouse, and they have to call triple A to pick them up
-the random urban legends lady who pops in, talks about cars being sex symbols for some reason and is never mentioned again afterwards
-the Air Force people call them back, twice, just to make extra sure they know that of course they absolutely can’t have a JATO rocket for their nutso project, who even are they anyways
-so they weld on three amateur rockets instead as an approximate equivalent
-Adam welding inside the car and keeps accidentally setting the car on fire
-because you can’t safely be inside an amateur-made rocket-powered car, they decide to remote control it
-that’s right
-rocket-powered, life sized RC car. these men are living the dream
-Adam: ‘this is so exciting, I’m going to have to have a grin-ectomy’
-Jamie (yes, JAMIE) giggling wildly when it actually WORKS, somehow
-and then as an encore they disprove the myth that you can pop your stomach by drinking soda while eating pop rocks by mounting a pig’s stomach inside of a plastic skeleton and force-feeding the stomach massive amounts of soda
-I just really love the Mythbusters what a show

I saw this post about a sailor moon drink a while back and it looked so delicious that i had to go off and make my own. Mine doesn’t doesn’t look too fancy but it tastes great!

EDIT:

This drink is actually a float so its SUPER EASY to make all I used was raspberry soda,vanilla icream, and some star shaped sprinkles! And then TA DAH! You gots yourself an Usagi float!

’ Why didn’t you tell me you were some kind of Alaskan Kennedy? ’
’ We were in the middle of talking about you… for the last 3 years. ’
’ People need to think that we are in love. ’
’ That, hey, that’s no problem. I can do that. ’
’ What am I allergic to? ’
’ I can pretend to be the doting fiance. ’
’ We love to snuggle. Don’t we honey? ’
’ If you get chilly tonight use this. It has special powers. ’
’ Oh. What kind of special powers? ’
’ I call it the baby maker. ’
’ Better be super careful with this. ’
’ Why are you panting? ’
’ Was that your family? ’
’ I’ve worked to hard for this and I’m sure that dad is pissed. ’
’ _________, will you marry me? ’
’ Wow. Barely made it out with my life. ’
’ I mean, did you see those teeths? ’
’ We should just sit and rapture. ’
’ I started leaving him little hints here and there. ’
’ That’s not exactly how it happened. ’
’ I mean I picked up on all of her little hints… ’
’ I went there and I pounded on the door. ’
’ I am not getting in that boat! ’

’ What do you mean it’s morning? ’
’ Well, that was originally my cup. ’
’ And I’m drinking your coffee why? ’
’ So you drink unsweetened cinammom light soy lattes. ’
’ Is that a coincidence? ’
’ I mean, I wouldn’t possibly drink the same coffee that you drink. ’
’ Why aren’t you taking notes? ’
’ I’m sorry, were you not in that room? ’
’ What? Oh, oh, the thing you said about being promoted? ’
’ I’m looking at a 250,000 dollar fine and 5 years in jail. ’
’ Promote you to editor? No way. ’
’ I’ll make you… I’ll make you editor. Happy? ’

’ I didn’t fire you because I felt threatened. ’
’ Another word and you’re out of here with an armed escort. ’
’ Didn’t think so. I have work to do. ’
’ I have never farted in front of him. Nor will I ever fart in front of him. ’
’ We’re not authorize to take you to the airport. ’
’ I’m not rich. My parents are rich. ’
’ Which is the kind of thing that only a rich person would say. ’
’ Where are your breasts, dear? ’
’ Am I the only one not getting this? ’
’ I’m sorry for feeding you to the eagle! ’
’ Uhm, would we kill each other? No! ’
’ Are you soul mates? ’
’ If she didn’t love him, she wouldn’t have left. ’

So now that I’m living in a dorm in Korea, I’m on a meal plan, right? Well, the main part of the meal is white rice and kimchi. And while white rice is good, I fucking love kimchi, which means a majority of my meals have a good chunk made up of kimchi. Like, I don’t even like most meats, which means what meat I do eat is fucking fish XD The entire campus here is made up of hills also, which means I’m walking up hill all the fucking time. And, like, I don’t drink pop/soda and I’m already tired of most of the sweets here because they’re not like the sweets in America (super sweet), which means all I snack on is, like, these little rice puffs and… apples. I think the most unhealthy thing I eat here is a thing of banana milk and a dark chocolate candy bar a day (because banana milk and darker chocolate is fucking great together). All I drink otherwise is water.  

Like, I’ve only been here two weeks and my pants are already too big. I wasn’t planning on losing weight, but it’s dropping off anyway. And I can’t afford to buy new clothes XD And my hips and shoulders–like, my literal bones–are too wide to fit the clothes here.

I don’t really know what I’m gonna do…
