iv. Jenna
v. A Recipe for Vegan Pad Thai
vi. A Drawing of Orlando Bloom
vii. Working at Staples
viii. Good Things in Canada

i. Men in Black

Men in Black was a movie that came out in 1997. Will Smith wrote a song about it. Men in Black is not to be confused with the hardcore pornography, Babes in Black.

ii. Malibu Rum

Malibu Rum is a diversified species, much like human beings, and consists of multiple colors and flavours as seen in this picture. We do not discrimnate against a bottle of Malibu Rum based on its color.

iii. Me

My name is Morgan Cohn and I work with kindergarteners (or kindergardeners) and I get paid 9 dollars an hour to do so.

iv. Jenna

Jenna is a half black half white girl from Canada.
She works at Staples.
She is wonderful.

v. A Recipe for Vegan Pad Thai (written by Jenna)

Lasts: about a week and a half if you eat it for like every meal. oh my goddddd.

Make one whole package rice noodles to directions, drain and set aside.
Heat 1 tsp of canola oil in a wok.
Cook 1 pkg of extra firm tofu which is diced into 3/4" cubes until crispy*~.
Add in some sliced mushrooms and cook them bitches too.
Add 1 can of pad thai sauce, rice noodles, 2 thinly sliced green onions, and 1/2 cup of chopped peanuts.
Coat mixture in sauce and cook until noodles are tender yet firm.
Stir in 2 cups of bean sprouts, warm, and remove from heat.
Serve with coarsely chopped fresh cillantro.

Bring some to Jenna.

vii. Working at Staples

I know nothing about working at Staples but I'm sure it's pretty easy. (haha)

viii. Good Things about Canada

Canada is a pretty good place, but a lot of people don't really give it a chance. But there are reasons to give Canada a chance and celebrate Canada Day with all your friends.

Canada has the most donut stores per capita.

Tegan & Sara, Final Fantasy, Feist, Broken Social Scene, Jason Collett, Emily Haines, Stars, The Weakerthans and many, many, many more musicians came from Canada.

Degrassi is from Canada.

Canada has beer, coloured money, Jenna, Montreal, moose, mounties, and free health care!

I have an aunt and two cousins who are currently in Canada.

Canada's legal age is 19, but it's 18 in Quebec.

Canada is home to Canadian Bacon, but I don't eat meat.

Maple Syrup is the basis of Canadian society.

Raffi and Jenna (they go hand in hand) both are from Canada.

You don't have to lock your doors at night if you live in Canada.

Canadians are generally very good looking!

i love everyone xx

This blog post/entry is co-written by me and my good friend, Jenna.

In this post you will find:
i. Precious
ii. Bright Eyes
iii. Me
iv. Jenna
v. A Recipe for Spring Rolls
vi. A Drawing of a Water Bottle
vii. 1970s Economy in Canada.
viii. How Great it is to be a Jew

I. PreciousPrecious is about 5 months old now.
She has met Mickey Mouse.
Right now, she has a bad case of diarrhea and it is pretty terrible for everyone involved.
Besides that, she is good at sleeping and we cuddle more than the average person cuddles with a dog.
She has brown eyes, blonde hair, a slim build, and enjoys long walks on the beach.

II. Bright Eyes

This is the cover of the new Bright Eyes record.
It's actually kind of misleading because when the album is unwrapped, it's all just gray.

The album is very good.
Everyone should listen to it, it's good.

I'll be seeing Bright Eyes at the Hard Rock Live in Orlando on May 17th.

Bright Eyes cannot use a computer.

III. Me (Morgan)

My name is Morgan.
I'm a Jew.
Recently, my French teacher yelled at me and told me she was tired of hearing about my jewishness.
Happy (late) Easter.

IV. Jenna
Jenna told me to write everything about her.
So I'm going to try.
Jenna is half white/half black from Toronto, Canada.
She knows how to get McLean.
She leaves the secret cockatiels on the trundle bed with the watermelon flavored ice cream from Rite Aid.
She goes to school and is supposed to be doing her homework, so am I.
She isn't Jewish.

V. How to make Spring Rolls
On Friday, I was invited to an Asian household with some Asian friends for an asian night of blood, gore, and rice.
The only reasonable thing that anyone would really do in the situation is make spring rolls.
Here is how to make spring rolls.

Thin rice noodles
Dried medium rice paper
Hoisin Sauce

Boil the noodles, drain them.
Put rice paper in between dampened paper towels. Cover them all with a dampened, clean cloth for ten minutes.
Peel and slice shrimp in half.
Cut up all the vegetables.
Boil the hoisin sauce with nuts.

When the rice paper is ready, stretch out on sheet, put shrimp, vegetables, and noodles on it. Roll it up, tuck in the ends first.

VII. 1970s Economy in Canada
I don't know anything about the economy in Canada.

VIII. How Great it is to be a Jew
Some people don't understand what it's like to be a Jew.
Some Jews don't understand how great it is to be a Jew.
When the thoughts of the jew fro and the horrors of humidity are pushed aside, one can truly realize how great it is to be a Jew.
In the 90s, being Latina was trendy.
In the 00s, being Jewish is trendy.
Jews are lovable. Jews are huggable.
We invented the bagel. We are humble.
Only Jews can get you the best sales on clothing and balance your checkbooks like nobody's business.
I feel bad for the people who aren't Jewish (like Jenna).
