Oh geez, it’s been oh-so-long since I’ve eaten a proper doughnut. My favorite classic doughnut bakery will always & forever be Happy Donuts (whose shops are rapidly closing all around the Bay Area). However, my new all-time favorite hipster doughnut bakery is Crosstown Doughnuts (from all the way over in London, England). Ever since I’ve had my first taste of these super delicious vegan doughnuts while I was visiting London, I was hooked.

I mean, I managed to strong-arm (without difficulty) Jian into eating these doughnuts for breakfast more than a couple of times during our trip. I even managed to sneak 2 chocolate doughnuts onto our flight back home, in Jian’s backpack, without crushing them. It’s pure torture every time I look at the bakery’s Instagram feed. Crosstown Doughnuts doesn’t ship to anywhere outside of England, & every single time I see one of their new photos pop up in my Insta-feed, I feel a longing in my heart for those delicious sweet treats. It’s like the food equivalent of a cock tease.

Buttt…doughnuts aren’t the only reason why I chose “glaze” as my current favorite vocabulary word. In the past year or so, I’ve been getting into ASMR audio clips, & even following a few ASMR artists on YouTube Patreon. I have really been enjoying listening to these audio clips, & they really help put me in a more positive mood.

One of my favorite ASMR audio artists likes to use the word “glaze”, well he used the past tense word “glazed“, in a few of his audio clips, & that word just got stuck in my brain. The context in which this ASMR artist used the word is not something I’d like to openly discuss. This person’s subject matter for their audio clips are quite risqué (a.k.a. NC-17 rated). This artist that I follow used this word to describe a situation perfectly, & it was able to vividly paint a picture of the scenario unfolding from the audio clip. I promptly had to comment to the artist that their use of the word “glaze” had me thinking about doughnuts while listening to their non-food related, very 🔥 🔥 audio clip. The artist quickly replied back saying that although that wasn’t their initial intent, that person found my comment hilarious, & was now unable to think about doughnuts without having a little chuckle.

I kind of want to describe the audio clip I was listening to at the time the word “glaze” was embedded into my mind, but I don’t want to have to put an adult rating on this blog. I’ll just let you make your own inferences as to what that risqué audio clip was all about. 😉 Until then, cheers baby.



I recently read a book where one of the main characters was British. It made me swoon every time I heard this gent use this word “dahh-ling” as a term of endearment toward the person he loves. During my brief time spent in London, I was hoping I’d hear this word being used by a local Londoner, somebody, anybody…but alas, I was unsuccessful on that front. I’d still like to hear this absolutely adorable word being spoken by a Brit in person, rather than on TV or in a movie.

So, this word is my chosen favorite word at the moment. Whenever I hear/read this word, I can’t help but think of actress Zsa-Zsa Gabor. I just loved it every time I heard her say this word on the popular classic TV show Green Acres. When I was a kid, I used to watch repeats of Green Acres (as well as many other “oldies”) on the Nick-At-Nite channel, where they’d always show re-runs of classic TV shows from the 50s, 60s, & 70s.

I don’t know why I was so drawn to watching these older TV shows, but I just loved Zsa-Zsa Gabor & her sister Eva Gabor. Those two actresses somehow reminded me of my maternal grandmother…all of them done up in their finest clothes, with their hair perfectly coiffed, all while wearing their best jewels. Also, the theme song to the Green Acres show pretty much summed up my parents’ relationship in one catchy theme song. My mom loved to live the big city life wearing fashionable clothes & her best jewelry, while my dad liked to get down & dirty in the garden. My dad, having spent many years living in Texas, admired farm/ranch living. He could never really live on a farm or ranch himself, but he always dreamed of it. You know, my dad always loved the cowboy way of life. My mom on the other hand, was a city girl that didn’t really love the outdoors, but she tolerated it for the sake of my dad. So this show kind of reminded me of my parents a little bit, but the main actress reminded me a lot of my grandmother.

I just adored the way Zsa-Zsa Gabor would say the word “darling“…as in DAAHHH-LIIING, with a dreamy European accent. As a little kid, I would practice saying this word while looking in the mirror, hoping no one would catch me doing something so silly. To this very day, this word makes my heart flutter. It’s so incredibly romantic & sweet. I feel like I want to incorporate more British slang terms & vocabulary words into my own English vocabulary. I don’t want to come off as a cheesy Anglophile, but I think it would be kind of fun to mix things up a little. I think I might start by using the word “darling” more in my vocabulary. Well, until then, cheers mates!

P.S. I’m going to Los Angeles to see The Killers in concert at the Staples Center! But before that, I’m going to another concert in one week to see Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats along with Kings of LeonWoah.

Today’s song of the day:

I love this word! I just wrapped up reading a particular book series written by a wonderful author, & this word was all over this book series.  In this series, this word had various meanings, but it mostly conveyed the unspoken feelings of love. The last book in this series truly made my heart melt. I just finished reading it today, & I’m about to go back & read the book all over again (yep, that’s how much I enjoyed the last book).

I picked this word to be my favorite word this time around because this particular book series really tugged at my heartstrings, & I’ve been thinking about the storyline lately, letting my imagination & my daydreams to run amok inside my head. This word, crossfire, really sums up how I feel about the series, just like how the main male character feels about the main female character in this series. Crossfire conveys what I dare not say aloud, yet feel from the inside out.

I don’t usually like to chat about the books I read. Most of these books are of a very specific genre that I don’t like to openly talk about, which is my way of saying that I’m too shy to admit that I enjoy reading this specific genre of books (most of which Jian would call “bean flickers”). However, with this particular word that I’ve chosen, I guess I basically just outed myself to the whole world & announced quite obviously that I read books of a certain flowery genre, & while I’m on a roll of announcing things, I will thoroughly admit that I am a fan of this author & her storyline in this particular book series. Therefore, I choose this word. Cheers…no, wait. CROSSFIRE.
