Console me in my sorrow

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 3, 2010, 2:33 AM


Cursed Heaven

Everything in my house is expired. The food...the products...if it has an expiration date, you can be sure it is past.

When I first came home, I was excited because it was like entering food heaven! After surviving off of Ritz crackers and bread+ketchup packets for who knows how long, just wandering into the kitchen and seeing food everywhere...you cannot imagine the feeling. But then, now I realize...it is a cursed heaven. So much food, but all of it, untouchable!

The ham is a few months too old. The mustard bottle dates back to 2007. It's 2010 now... I'm afraid to check the A1 sauce. Even the medicine (sleeping pills, ointments) is expired...that's very dangerous!

I showed my dad the condiment bottles, and he just laughed and put it back.
I showed my mom the expired medicine, and she just said "Well it works for me"....and put it back.

Once I tried putting all of the expired things in a pile and put a big note labelled "EXPIRED" on it. The next morning, all of them were back in their original places...

What is this?

Even the toothpaste is expired since 2008 for crying out loud.

Gawd, I feel like




........
BTW, happy 2010~
2009 was not a very good year for me, but since I don't like to share depressing news (people are sad enough already?), I didn't talk about it much.... But I'm really hoping this new year will be better! Everybody, please be safe and healthy~ Life is too fleeting already as it is.. ;w;
I will also try to draw more this year, since I was sort of lazy last year...

Oh Asian parents.
Our microwave first randomly had half its buttons stop working. We had choices of the 3, 5, and 9 buttons. That lasted for at least a month or two. Then yesterday there was a POP noise when I started microwaving lunch, followed by copious amounts of smoke on the next dish. When it finally wouldn't stop smoking, we chucked it out into the yard, and today finally have a working microwave.

We don't keep expired products, but one thing my parents do commonly is cut off the half of the fruit that is rotting, and eat the other half. .... ._.

Easy...sorta. There 59 and 99 to make a minute and a minute and a half. If I do 59 or 99, then press start twice really fast, it makes it double that, so two minutes and 3 minutes.

And then there's of course, 3:33, 5:55, 9:99. But I spent a lot of time while we had the old microwave putting 3:33 and watching it to stop my oatmeal from overcooking D:

The fruit thing...at least they don't make me also do it >_>

I didn't even know toothpaste could expire.

Today (actually 15 minutes ago) I just found out that the body wash is from 2006... Talk about horror.

Hankyung~ Although he's not my fave, it's hard not to enjoy that pic of him ;D

Body wash expires!? These things...have expiration dates!? Man, I should go use those body products before I find them expired too.

Who is your favorite then? *curious* He's not my favorite either, although I like him very much. XD I don't have a single favorite, but the top three I like are Kyuhyun, Zhou Mi, and Ryeowook:heart:

It's surprising the amount of things that have expiration dates... once you start really looking, you find them everywhere!

My favorite in SuJu: Yesung ♥ He's always stood out to me, even when I couldn't tell any of the members apart :3 Oh, and you're the first person I've seen to likes Zhou Mi ;D I think he's very cute, although I don't see enough of him.

Must look at unusual products now. any idea where to start? lol.

Oh, Yesung. He cracks me up~♥
Yeah, it's sad that so few people like Zhou Mi...he's really such an adorable and eager boy!! He makes me want to try harder, and with the current events going on..it's so sad.

I've noticed that usually anything with liquid in them will have an expiration date. (Hand sanitizer doesn't seem to though)

I meant expired/spoiled milk products. XD I like ice cream~ Chocolate milk is good too~

That is kind of random, but..yes! Of course. XD If it's kpop and even slightly popular, I've probably seen it~ *3* I'm more familiar with boy bands than girl ones though...

My parents put expired bread in the fridge as a way to save money I suppose.

But expired medicine is dangerous - and yet my grandmother still uses them even though she is a retired doctor. O:

I mean, I know they must print a date there for a reason, right?! My dad says it's just a "suggestion"...OTL

Must be Asian parents huh? My parents do that too orz ...except usually they're only a week old max or something :/

Maybe they're only reusing the old bottles and refilling them with cheaper stuff? You can only hope...

:iconkagami222:
kagami222 Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2010  Student Filmographer
oh trust me, they're not being refilled... food isn't supposed to separate like that... OTL

I mean, I know that they care it's expired just...nobody does anything about it :iconfacepalmplz:

It's the asian "1-2 year rule"... It's ok if it's off by 1-2 years..they leave an extra spatial cushion anyways

But now that I think about it, I've probably been eating this stuff since I was little...which means I've probably developed some sort of immune system..:noes:

Their main excuse is that we can't afford to buy new things...*sobs* It's sadly true...
