poem-stitching

Shawn L. Bird

So long ago

sewing tiny pearl beads

around a gauzy net

to form a bridal halo

stitching dreams together.

Drops of blood

from pricked fingers

drip upon the silk flower crown

white for purity

red for courage

blood for

hope.

Anniversary approaching.  You can see the veil in question on an older post here.

Twofer Twosday – Karaage Chicken and Sunomono

kanzen sakura

East meets South in this Japanese version of fried chicken and a kinda sorta cole slaw – actually an easy pickled vegetable dish which is a perfect side dish.

Karaage fried chicken is a very popular food in Japan – it is served in restaurants similar to tapas restaurants, as a street food, a snack with beer in local bars, picked up and taken home for dinner – but it is an easy and different take on fried chicken. Recipes call for chicken thighs but I use similarly sized strips or chunks of chicken breast meat. it can also be made with firm fish, but usually when the term karaage is mentioned, it refers to chicken.

Tebasaki Karaage – is a variation. Disjointed chicken wings are used and are my favorite. Use the standard recipe using 10 wings and deep frying for – 10 minutes.

I have posted sunomono before…

5 Types of Football (Soccer) Fans

In honor of Germany’s great win yesterday I would love celebrate by going over the top five kind of Football fans there are out there. I know I have not Blog a lot and won’t be in some time because of school but don’t worry! I will try to post at least once a week okay? Now with out any more delays here are five types of Football (Soccer fans)!

#1. “The Clueless”

c

This is the easiest to spot because fan has no Idea what the heck is going. They have no idea how the game is played which team are playing or understand the importance of anything Football related! You will often catch them ask ridiculous questions like “how do you score? How long does the game last? they have like four quarters right?”. The reason this fan even bother to watch Football will always change. Some do it just to watch good looking players. Some to impress some they like. Some do it because all their other friends are doing it too and they don’t want to feel left out. This fans are okay as long as they don’t evolve to be the next number on this list…

#2. “The groupies” aka “The fake fans”

fake

Oh come one! you knew this had to be on my list somewhere! They are exactly like the title say…FAKE! They are hard core fans until their team loses. For example there were a lost of people talking trash about Spain and Brazil during this world cup. The problem was a lot of them were fans before both of those team got raped badly. The worst part about a fake fan is they will tell you that they were never a real fan to begin with. When Brazil lost those fake fans were all on social media talking trash about it them when Germany won they all pretended they were Germany’s fan from the start! For any real fan those fan are found to be really annoying.

#3 “The perfect team/player’s fans”

no

This fans think their team club are players are perfect no matter what!!! no matter how many time they lose. At first you might think they are just die hard fans but you’ll eventfully notice that they are not. Those fans are what I sometime call “the deluded fans”. When their team does lose they will find what ever excuse their is in the book to make it seem like the game was not fair to their team or player. These fans will blame their lost on the referee or a player that was not here or say that the other team was playing too rough. A clear example would be when Brazil lost 7-1 to Germany in this semifinal. Some crazy fans actually had the guts to use the “If Neymar was here this would not have happen” excuse! I mean the guy doesn’t play defense how they hell was he going to help the team not get all those goals???!!! Anyways I am getting off topic here but you know it’s true! Those fans are also will kill you if you ever even dare trash talk about their team.

#4 “The Trash takers” AKA “The Haters”

TRASH_TALKER

The are exactly what you think they are. They feed on trash! Those are the fans that root for a team or a player they secretly think isn’t that good so to make themselves fell better that trash talk about other players and teams. Don’t get me wrong everyone trash talk once in a while but if you spend hours on the internet making memes or is constantly sharing and posting them on your social media…you are a trash talker. A classic example would be a Messi fan trash talking how “Gay” CR7. Or a CR7 fan talking about how “useless” Messi is with out Zavi or Iniesta passing to him. In order to know is a fan is a trash talker or not you simply have to mention how badly their team or player did in a game after just wait and the trash talking will being. You will find trash takers trash talking more then saying what accomplishment their player or team actually did.

#5. “The true fan”

 good-person

Notice how I actually put this one in singular? Yes it’s because there isn’t such fans! Or if such fans does exist they are the only one of his or her kind. Obviously everyone claims that they are a “true” fan but the fact remains it’s not true! To be a true fan you would have to watch every second of game play of your team/player from his beginning to his end. You’re suppose to cry when they cry and celebrate when they win without being annoying or douche face to your friends who might support another team. This kind of fan might still exist but he/she is rare! At the end of the day if we are being honest we all have at some point done something wrong to our team/player or other  fans.

So that’s it for this article! I hope you were able to enjoy this. I am a little of #4 and #3 to be honest. What kind of fan are you? What are the types of fans do you think I left out? Let me know in the comment section below!
