Building a computer is hard

Building a computer is hard, originally uploaded by snackpig.

CPU, Heatsink and RAM are in. But David had to help me, I couldn't
physically push the heatsink into the holes that attached it to the
motherboard. My thumbs hurt from trying. But he swears he isn't
touching this again.

Let's build a Hackintosh!

My first homemade Korean pancake

Thanks Sonia for the recipe! Instead of little pancakes, I opted for
one jumbo sized one. We ate the entire thing in one sitting.

As adapted from Sonia Lee's Korean Home Cooking:

Kimchi pancakes
1 cup kimchi with juices, chopped
1 egg
1/4 small yellow onion optional, diced
1/2 cup of flour
1/3 cup of water
Mix all the ingredients, heat up pan on medium with sesame oil, fry
like a pancake!

Just like home

Just like home, originally uploaded by snackpig.

But not quite. Red curry, just how my parents both told me to make it.
The house stinks, my hair stinks and I had to add a lot of extra
ingredients to get it to be less salty. Oh, and I maced us out of the
house. Pretty tasty-especially considering when I asked them how to make it,
they each gave me different directions, ingredients and amounts.
