strawberry&lime

It occurred to me that today marks the longest I’ve ever gone without seeing Nerdler since she was born. And another 10 days to go before I see her again.

I am doing my best to take advantage of the extra JJ time. But I sure miss my sub-unit.

Morgan, Morg, Morgana, Morgie Porgie, CONGRATS ON MAKING IT TO 1.2K YOU DESERVE A MILLION FOLLOWERS!!! ❤️ headcanons about happy kevin because I'm so happy for you?

oh I love all of these nicknames :D


so what does a happy kevin day look like? a happy kevin day…

  • kevin day wakes up every morning and has a healthy breakfast. he slathers everything he eats in chia seeds and will fill a water bottle with thinly sliced lemon, lime, strawberries and mint leaves. he keeps very hydrated and finds really interesting ways to get his daily hydration
  • in the mornings he runs around 10 miles, and that eats up about 2 hours of his morning. it’s something that he started adding to his workout regime when neil came to psu because he was always running a ridiculous amount, and even though kevin was the better striker, he knew that neil had a lot of potential and wanted to up his distance to keep up with the younger man
  • most of the gifts kevin receives are different types of protein. his favorites are pea protein and egg protein
  • something that is newer to his life, since he came to psu. kevin now has a lot of hobbies. at first he only did things with the monsters, but as neil brought the team together, kevin started to slowly start doing things with everyone
  • andrew and kevin can often be found getting smoothies in between classes and shit talking as they people watch. it’s a good way that they can compromise, healthy but sweet
  • aaron and kevin binge drink together, because both of them will drink an obscene amount and not say a word about how much either of them consumed the night before
  • after drinking with aaron, kevin can be found dancing sloppily with nicky on the dance floor of eden’s twilight, or on top of the coffee table in his dorm room to no music. kevin day loves to dance, and it’s actually what made nicky put kevin on his “celebrity allowance” list
  • kevin practices with neil most often, but that’s not always exy. he likes to practice his snarky comebacks on neil when neil doesn’t expect it. his goal is to one day shock neil into silence instead of firing him up to rip kevin open down his middle
  • every friday night, dan and kevin got to chilis and participate in their karaoke night and every saturday night they go to trivia at the local pizza parlor
  • kevin tutors matt in history, and once matt finds a time period he likes, they will talk about that specific part of history all the time. matt got really into vikings and they’re really pumped that The Last Kingdom season 2 was just put on netflix
  • kevin’s guilty pleasure is going shopping with allison. they’re both really big on instagram and are asked to sponsor items all the time, but honestly they’re asked to sponsor so much that they often get giftcards to shop with the different companies since they don’t get to keep the outfits for their sponsored posts. they take a lot of pleasure in shopping and then having photoshoots together to get the absolute best photos they can. they have an amazing camera that they use, and allison has a lot of editing skills to maximize their natural beauty
  • kevin and renee watch a lot of foreign films together, mostly french films, but not only french. renee told kevin that she wants to go into the peace corps and would like to learn french before she goes and they have a lot of movie study sessions where they watch french movies with french subtitles and kevin quizzes her after to make sure she’s not only mastering her vocabulary, but that she’s also able to keep up with the intricacies of the plots
  • one of kevin’s favorite things is to go on date’s with thea. in fact the first time he actually goes skiing is with her. they will go ice skating, rollerblading, and will play pickup games of roller or ice exy, which are a really dangerous games some of the more rough and tumble ravens created together
  • one of kevin’s favorite memories is the day that he got his dog Uggie, a small jack russell terrier
  • but probably even better than that, are the memories that he starts to get as he bonds with wymack and they start to get more of a father-son dynamic as opposed to a coach-athlete dynamic
  • eventually, a couple years down the road, kevin is the best man at wymack and abby’s wedding
  • the best memory of all was getting to hold his younger brother on his 27th birthday

My new favourite breakfast thing - fresh homemade strawberry and orange juice with added lime. It’s so simple, refreshing and yummy. I’ve been having this a lot along with breakfast and tbh I think I could drink this every morning (if only strawberries were cheaper!).

Ingredients:

. 4-5 large strawberries

. 2 large oranges

. 2 Tbsp lime juice

. 1 Tbsp sugar

. 2 cups water

But as far as we’re concerned, you need to just throw out that standard menu here. Did you know the Cove Bar has a SECRET MENU of amazing drinks? Head’s up, ‘cuz here it comes…

The Black Pearl: It starts out like a classic Long Island with vodka, gin, rum and sweet & sour. However, Chambord and Sprite are added in the mix to give it a new spin.  The raspberry flavor of the Chambord lends this one an unexpected fruity flavor, despite its appearance (prepared in a layered style to give it that cool ombre effect).

Earthquake: Vodka, gin, rum, and sweet & sour: check! But this time, blue curaçao and Sprite join the mix, and it’s all topped off with a 151 Rum floater.


Neverland Tea: While the vodka, gin, and rum are all still very much present, the sweet & sour is replaced here with peach schnapps, pineapple juice and Sprite, while midori lends it that terrific hue of Peter Pan green.

Fun Wheel: named, of course, for the great view of Mickey’s Fun Wheel from Cove bar. Just looking at it puts me in a good mood!

The Zombie:  rum drinkers will want to take note: it’s made up of light rum, dark rum, coconut rum, spiced rum, 151 Rum, orange and pineapple juices, blue curaçao, midori and grenadine. Yo, Ho, Ho!!! 

Midway Martini features Absolute Orient Apple Vodka, Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur, cranberry juice, organic agave nectar, and fresh lime juice.

Melrose: strawberry puree and Rose Regale are what make this beauty stand out from the other Long Island variations.

Sideshow Novel Tea : is a combination of Absolut Wild Tea Vodka, iced tea, strawberry puree, and fresh lemon juice.

Making Time [REQUEST]

The Han River was buzzing with activity despite the sun beginning to set along the western horizon, filling the sky up with streaks of orange and red across the sky. All around you, people were passing by enjoying their evening, riding their bikes or jogging along the river bank or just simply taking a leisurely stroll. No one paid much attention to you sat by yourself on a bench, nor did they flicker a glance at the man dressed in a black suit just behind you.

You had found that people often seemed to just ignore dealings with the mafia, blissfully ignorant to the darker world going on around them. You probably would be the same if you hadn’t grown up with the mafia. Growing up with a mafia boss for a father meant you were pretty used to living a dangerous life, especially since your father died and your fiancé was named his successor. Now instead of being the daughter to a mafia boss, you were about to marry one.

Despite all the crazy, dangerous and possibly illegal things going on in your life, you and Jongin still managed to make time for each other. It may not sound like a normal relationship but you tried to be as much as possible - date nights to the cinema or dining out in fancy restaurants. For tonight’s date night, he was treating you to ice cream by the river.

Salad-in-a-jar

Here’s a neat idea: packing your salad in a jar for a quick meal.

It’s easy enough, but keep these tips in mind:

  • Most important rule: dressing at the bottom, greens at the top. Keep them as far away from one another as possible. If you do that, your greens will stay crispy and fresh, no problem.
  • Use the resting time to your advantage. Place items that’ll soak up and marinade in the dressing as the next layer for the best salad flavor. Cooked grains, tofu, meats, mushrooms—anything that is spongy and will suck up that yumminess as the jar sits in the fridge.
  • To make the salads a little more hearty and filling, try adding a protein like chicken, quinoa, beans or cubed tofu.
  • We’ve had these salads last as long as 10 days in the fridge without getting soggy, yucky or anything but delicious.
  • I try to keep the ratio of each jar about half-and-half—half toppings, dressing, grains, proteins and half greens.
  • For a few more tips, see the source: http://backtoherroots.com/2013/04/09/salad-in-a-jar-101/

What I love about our language culture now is that acronyms that express emotions are now useless when we’re actually feeling/doing the thing. Like, now people say “lol” when they mean that something generally amused them, but when they actually lol, the acronym is now useless and they have to forego the shorthand it was made for and say, “I laughed out loud,” in order to clarify that they literally laughed out loud. Communication, y’all. It’s awesome.

I'm on a BOAT

BLSummer Bingo: Yachts and Sunscreen! Rated T, mostly rhack but Tim is here and a bit of rhackothy happened- just spreading the love!

-~-

“This is a no pants allowed zone, Rhysie!” Jack spread his arms out wide as he walked backwards up the ramp from the dock to his yacht. It was, of course, bright yellow with a white stripe around the sides. There were no sails or rigging involved in the sleek design- only a motor engine. “Get some shorts! Speedo! Or nothin’ at all!”

Rhys grinned. “Think I’ll just get some swim trunks, okay?” He climbed aboard the yacht, dubbed ‘The VIP Deck’. Obviously named by Jack. He kicked his shoes off and was about to make his way down to the sleeping quarters to change when another Jack walked on board. “Uh?”

“Hey good lookin’!” yelled Jack. He leaned on the deck railing and put on shiny reflective sunglasses. “Rhys, meet Tim. I’m paying him to be sober and drive the boat if you or I get too busy being wasted or having hot juicy sex.”

“Uhhhhhh, hi?” Rhys held out his hand and Tim groggily shook it. “No offense, but- I kinda thought I’d be alone with Jack.”

Tim scoffed but gave Rhys a genuine, warm smile before going back to sounding dead inside. “Chillax, kid. I’ve been to Jack’s parties, I’ve seen some things. Nothin’ you do will bother me. Especially considering how handsome you are yourself!”

Rhys wished he knew if that was Tim being in character, genuine, or both. He hoped both.

Jack grinned and winked at Tim. “You got the attitude down today, huh? What exactly did you do all night, eh Timmy? Got a lucky girl? Guy? Other being?”

“The lucky girl I spent all night on was Google, learning how to drive this boat.” Tim yawned and climbed in the cabin to look at the controls. “We probably won’t die!”

Rhys didn’t have time to doubt him. Jack put his arm around Rhys and led him down a few steps to the cabin and bedroom. “We’re gonna have the BEST vacation, Rhysie! Drinks, sunshine, fresh air, you name it.”
