Keep Quiet

9070 - mon - Lots of Asian Elements

Started the week by taking a new route to work! Get an extra 10 minutes or so to sleep in, Fewer road hazards and a shorter trip home! Seems like a winner, so far.

Rice and Beans combined with the last of our yummy thai/curry soup. I swear that BHK is an amazing chef. I suspect that if she went back into the restaurant field that she'd have quite a following.

We watched Curse of the Golden Flower last night... it seemed to continue forever, and didn't grab me at all. I think that I was expecting Hero or House of Flying Daggers, and it just wasn't that sort of flick. The sets and visuals were nice, but it just didn't elicit any strong feelings or thought processes from me.

More pictures from our sushi night on Sunday, and another picture of the "Prisoner Inn" - Flickr uploader has been very flukey lately. It cuts off uploads midstream and drops items from the queue... I may just go with the web interface from now on.

Last weekend, I couldn't sleep at one point.. played a little Tf2, loaded the 2nd life update, but didn't log on, and got to the last level (haven't completed it) of Portal. So far portal-wise, I've gotten 4 accomplishments - not bad, given that I play about 20 minutes or so at a time, and half of that is spent just piddling around the environment.

Leave a comment and ask, and I will -

1. Tell you why I friended you or at least try to.
2. Associate you with something - a song, a color, a photo, a word, etc.
3. Tell you something I like about you.
4. Tell you a memory I have of you.
5. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.
6. Tell you my favorite user pic of yours.
7. In return, you must post this in your LiveJournal. (No stress about it from me - but I'd like to see it continue!)

via consumerist -

That $1,500 Prada bag may have been stitched by an illegal Chinese immigrant working in a Tuscan sweatshop.

Steve Warshak, the snake oil salesman responsible for Enzyte (and consequently for those "Smiling Bob" ads) was found guilty today of conspiracy to commit mail fraud, bank fraud, and money laundering. So was his mom.

Items recently eaten that may have negative / naughty-juvenile connotations, slang-wise.

Big 'Mo - That had a much different connotation when I was in high school. I'd love to see a nascar kid wearing a BIG 'MO cap.... not sure I could keep a straight face.

Screamin' dill Pickle Pringles - Funny, yet, it's about as extreme as tap water... or we just got the most feebly seasoned stack, ever. (Impulse's comment about it being slang for gonorrhea is better than any gag that comes immediately to my mind.)

Hostess Cherry Pie - Cripes... look at the food values. memo to self, just eat a box o' fat and salt. 11 points???

Not to be outdone, BHK recently had a "Jack Pack" of Beef Stick, cheese stick and pretzel stick.
