A year ago today, Joel and I met up under strange and dubious circumstances. He rocked, and now we're kind of inseperable and googly-eyed cute and blech blech sweet. So we keep saying "It's our anniversary!" but really it's just because we remember. Feb. 10th. We had crepes back then but today we had dim sum and tapioca drinks.

Re: Tapioca!
The strange circumstance under which Joel and I met was the creepy, nightmarish world of online personals, actually! He got in touch with me after I'd basically given up on the experiment, having had several really awkward, hideous interactions. I was sort of uncertain about meeting him, and only kind of grudgingly accepted to do so, bringing pippilina along as a safety net, lest he be yet another creep. Much to our surprise, we immediately liked each other! We were both nervous and I was clumsy, and we spent 2 days being giggly and talking a lot, finding more and more in common with each other and things progressed from there. I even made him move to San Francisco har har.

As for Tapioca, it's a starch derived from Cassava, or Manioc plants, tubers which have been cultivated in south america and the carribean since pre-columbian times (hey i just looked it up!) In this case, the tapioca is made in to weird black gummy balls and tea, or flavored ice slush is poured in to a cup with a big fat straw for sucking up the slush and gummy tapioca balls. Here's a CNN article about the stuff. It's kind of good at first, but it's really really heavy and filling, and the tapioca itself doesn't have much of a flavor, mostly just a texture. I couldn't finish my drink, but I had some fun spitting the balls out in to the gutter.

Re: goodie gumdrops?
Nyeh. I figure it's better that we're with each other and not inflicting ourselves on some other, unprepared people. We are freaky in all the compatiblest ways.
