“Monster Burrito” Cedar Park, 2018


Tonight Koa and I bought burritos from our favorite burrito shops: Freebirds World Burrito. Based in Austin, we find it superior to Chipotle, which was where we often went to get our carnitas burritos. Freebirds has more options for salsas and veggies, the portions are larger, and the vibe is local and more fun.

Value-wise, I think it’s a better deal as well. Mariko and I will buy a $9 Monster-size burrito and share it, which is plenty for us, while the kids will each get their own $7 Freebird. And sometimes Bay will eat half for dinner and save half for the next day’s breakfast. 😛

What I especially like about Freebirds is that they have several different salsas to try, ranging from habañero and “Death” on the hot side, all the way down to roasted corn and lime juice on the mild side. In addition to the pico, I’ll get extra cilantro, chopped jalapeño, sour cream, and onion. And that’s in addition to the meat (chicken AND carnitas tonight), beans, rice, and cheese. I’m always amazed that everything fits in the tortilla!

In the photo, you can see how big it is compared to a can of beer. It’s so much food, and so, so yummy.

I hope you had a nice Friday!

こんばんは。How’s it going?

Today I received a new Jinhao fountain pen from Ebay. It was only $0.99! It actually writes very nicely, smooth and comfortable. The ink flows at a nice rate and I even though I don’t write very fast, there’s no skipping at all when I did some quick scribbles. It’s very light (maybe a little too light) but very comfortable to hold, and relatively thin, so I can keep it within the spiral of my plain Mead notebook. The clip is basic but works well. And did I mention it was only 99 cents (including shipping)? Wow.

I hope you had a nice day!

“Sticker Up!” Cedar Park, 2017

I added some stickers to my Crosstrek the other day. I am kind of nuts for the game Splatoon, and I love the fake brands they have in the game, so I added the “Zink” logo to the bumper. And of course, I had to represent my Dodgers! FYI, I bought the stickers from RedBubble, then trimmed them a bit with scissors, and put clear plastic over the top for a little more protection from the elements.

I really love my new car. It’s kind of fun and unique, so why not have even more fun with it? 😝


Splatoon 2 Update!

Sure, Animal Crossing – Pocket Camp was released today, but I am more excited about the huge update coming in two days for Splatoon 2! Looks great! And do I need to talk to guests at Thanksgiving, or can I camp in front of the TV?


Yay, Splatfest has begun! I am really enjoying Splatoon 2 on the Switch. It’s so fun! And today when I started the game, the square was a huge dance party. It’s very cool I could watch Pearl and Marina all day. And the Inklings have some nice dance moves too. Very cool!

Check out this video of the song “Ebb and Flow” that they sing during Splatfest:

For the US Splatfest, there’s a Halloween theme and the teams are Vampire vs. Werewolf. I chose Team Werewolf, so if you see Sachiモン in-game, that’s me! I have to say, Splatoon is one of my favorite games because A) I don’t suck, B) the clothing options are really cool and cute, and C) the weapons are so varied and fun.

Is anyone else playing?
