Don’t worry, this isn’t going to be a “hey look at my food blog”, but I thought my lunch today was a pretty good description of things I like. I’m the only girl in my office and we all wear uniforms so random things like this seem to be conversation starters with the guys at work.
I’m never found a good word for it, but I’m a tomboy who still likes super girly things as well. Let’s see, my love of sci-fi is displayed with the coffee mug and the chopsticks (Star Wars and Evangelion). Sometimes people think I stole my hubby’s coffee mug. I’m not used to that whole “fake nerd girl” thing being directed at me, but I caught flack for my Star wars mug. I had someone start quizzing me on star Wars (like hmming the Imperial March and asking me if I knew what it was); Star Wars was my first nerd love, don’t question that. (the tea was mint chocolate btw)
The chopsticks came with me to work to honestly make me feel better about eating ramen for lunch; it’s the super spicy kind, but still kind of junk food. I learned to use chopsticks while I was studying linguistics; I was learning Farsi, but all my friends were studying Mandarin Chinese or Korean. So, to go out to eat with them, I had to use chopsticks or be made fun of. Mine are Evangelion themed, because I do like anime/manga, but I wouldn’t quite call myself an otaku.
My Hello Kitty bento box started as a running joke. I got the girliest things I could find to bring to work so my coworkers wouldn’t steal my lunch or office supplies. I absolutely loved Hello Kitty when I was little, I’m so glad Sanrio made a come back over here.
Oh, and my alicorn, aka Sgt,. Rumble is just there for awesomness (he lives on my desk). Yes, I loved ponies/mythical critters long before MLPFIM and Tokidoki made them adorably popular again, and I’m so happy that they are. ^-^ This is also the closest thing I have at work to share my love of fantasy, I don’t have anything D&D or LOTR related at work to share.
So, that’s a good start on describing myself and the types of things you’ll see on my blog (not pics of my boring lunch, lol). So, sorry for the random ramblings. Here’s a pic of my new plushie drinking coffee.
Thanks for reading!
