Man okay when I got my wisdom teeth out it was a fucking experience. Before the surgery wasn’t too interesting but as soon as I woke up I saw the nurse next to me and was all like “hey… i think… i died… and now I’m in a parallel universe… and i gotta go back to my house and kill the me from this universe” and he was just kinda like “alright, you do that”. And then the other nurse kept going in and out of the room to get things and I thought there was like 5 of her that kept coming out of the room, and then so when she was wheeling me out in a wheelchair I was like “damn… why are there so many of you… there’s like 5 many of you” and she was just kinda like “alright, you do that”.
Anyway I got to the car and my dad was there and he was like “how ya feeling son” in the dadliest way possible and I was like “MAN I AM PUMPED LETS GET SOME JUICE I’M STARVED” so we drove about 3 blocks to a jamba juice, whereupon I say “I’m good I can do this” and run/drunkstumble 30 feet to the door. I burst in the door like a viking returning from some fucking battle and holler “WHATS UP FUCKS” to everyone in the store, which was thankfully just the 2 people behind the counter, who looked probably as scared/confused as a jamba juice employee could look.
So anyway, as my dad explained the situation I looked up at the jamba juice menu and was utterly fucking lost in it. Like I swear I was looking at this menu board for a year, deciphering this Rosetta stone of fruits. I distinctly remember that I was looking at each item in a smoothie, thinking of how it tasted, then moving on to the next thing and thinking of how that tasted, and how they would taste together. Since most smoothies had 3 or 4 items, this took some thinking. So my dad sees me in this extreme brain blast state of mind and says “hey are you going to order or what”. Keep in mind I’m on the first fucking smoothie on the list here. So I just say “shush man I’m trying to do fruit science”, and then when I realized that this process could take literal years, I just said “yeah give me a smooth regular” which for the uninitiated, isn’t actually a real thing on any menu. Oh, also I asked them if the “boosted” smoothies would give me super powers and then pointed my fingers at them and made “lightning noises”.
So my dad just orders me the first thing on the menu and I go to sit down and stare out the window or some shit and my thoroughly amused dad just looks at me and says “how ya feelin?”. Now at this time I was feeling a lot of things, but most noticeable to me was the gauze in my mouth, so I just look at him and say “there’s these fuckin… tiny sheep in my head” which at the time was the best way I had to convey this feeling. Anyway about that time, the jamba juice guy brings us our drinks and he gives me a small thing of mario kart stickers and I swear I almost cried from the tsunami of emotion that gift made me feel (I still have them).
Anyway the rest of the story is we drove home and I explained this programming project I was working on to my dad in perfect detail somehow and then I came home and went on facebook and posted a comment on my friends status (because I couldn’t find the status update bar) that read: “i just took a lort of painkillers and yelled at everyone in a jambo juice”
Based on a couple of responses to that “iconic Sailor Moon food” post (and the times I’ve come across the topic elsewhere on the Internet), I thought it might be advantageous to clarify the difference between two different kinds of “dumpling” seen and/or referenced in the Sailor Moon world.
First you have the kind of ‘dumpling’ seen frequently in the first season of Sailor Moon. They tend to stick in your memory if you’re a Western fan because the DiC dub consistently localized them as “jam doughnuts”:
These are often referred to as ‘dumplings’ in subtitles, though that’s probably not the best way to describe them. Some think that these are the “odango” that Usagi’s hairstyle gets its nickname name from, but they aren’t. These are nikuman, which is a steamed bun with filling (typically pork). “Niku” means “meat”, and “man” comes from “manju” (a sweet version of a similar concept), so other types of bun can have other names, like “chuukaman” (Chinese bun), “anman” (red bean paste [an] bun), “karee-man” (curry bun), etc.
It’s easy to assume this is what all the characters are referring to, since subtitles often translate both “nikuman” and “odango” as “dumpling”; it’s even more confusing when Mamoru once says Usagi is a cannibal because she’s “an odango eating nikuman”, and the subtitles stretch the joke further by saying “a dumpling eating dumplings”.
But dango (commonly referred to with an honorific ‘o’ as ‘odango’) are completely different. They are sweet, not savoury, and very small and chewy, made out of rice flour with a similar texture/taste to mochi (another food referenced in/significant to Sailor Moon).
Here’s an example of actual odango from an S episode (they look most like bocchan dango, essentially “tri-colour dango”, or hanami dango, same concept for different situations).
These are what Usagi’s hairstyle is named after, not nikuman - although personally, I think the size, shape, and swirly pattern of nikuman looks a lot more like Usagi’s hair, but I guess “meat bun” isn’t really a cute nickname.
So this is just some vaguely obscure and mildly helpful Sailor Moon trivia!
put young teenage homestucks in a room and they’ll throw trash everywhere and honk horns and wear buckets but put 20 something homestucks in a room and all theyll do is make fun of eachother for liking homestuck and get drunk
Hello, I am an native american tumblr user and I noticed there is no tag besides just ndn and tags of the like for native peoples. I want to make this tag for native peoples for blogging about really anything that relates to native culture like pictures of cultural items, folklore, talking about problems regarding native culture, etc.
I came up with indeedindigenous as the tag name
This tag includes not just native americans, but all native peoples (i.e inuits, aboriginal peoples around the world in general etc.)
