Why didn't you ever purse a career in fashion?

Gorgeous_Puddin said...

During college my interest in Sociology, Education and Black History was stronger than my interest in fashion outside of dressing myself. Now I wish I had pursued it all....

Nexgrl said...

I opened that gif at work, while at the reference desk at that. I had to close that page.

I like garlic crab also. I've made it for my Mom and she can eat a whole crab by herself. I told her that we can no longer eat crab at restaurants.

Gorgeous_Puddin said...

LOL! It wasn't that risque was it?

Yes! Garlic grab is the best! The restaurants do charge way too much! Market price is at least 20 dollars less than what they charge! But I love going all the same! Especially Thanh Long.
