Tonight, I decided to forego watching the latest episode of Bones while eating my dinner, as I've discovered that the combination of that show and meals is one of questionable wisdom.

So I cooked myself up some Thai pasta, and sat down to eat and watch the Torchwood second series episode, "Meat."

Regarding my previous post:
My brother: you remember that old movie about a woman losing her diamond bracelet in a donut making machine?
[livejournal.com profile] thepeopleseason: Yes, indeed I do.
Bro: just wondering. I think I'll look for it on youtube.
Bro: http://www.avclub.com/content/feature/ask_the_a_v_club_april_27_2007/2
Bro: unfortunately, in one of the worst google search coincidences known to man, the kid in the story's name is "homer" making finding a youtube copy virtually impossible.

THE RULES:
  1. Leave me a comment saying anything random, like your favourite lyric to your current favourite song. Or your favorite kind of sandwich. Something random. Whatever you like.
  2. I'll respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
  3. Update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
  4. Include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.
  5. When others comment asking to be asked, you will ask them five questions.


From [livejournal.com profile] countessmary, my first set of questions... )
thepeopleseason: (Default)
I know you think pretty much anything is fair game, especially if it's sweet, sour, bitter, salty, or spicy. But, please, for the love of all that is umami, stop putting ingredients that kill into things that are meant to go into people's mouths.
thepeopleseason: (magic)
You really need to quit cooking yourself spaghetti before sitting down to watch Bones.

No, really. Quit it.

Yeah. I've been away for a while. Not a whole lot going on, other than work, work, more work, and living in happiness with the Pink Gator. There was the conversation that I had with [livejournal.com profile] batnandu about how the inclusion of Optimus Prime would make any movie better, but since that was in the meatspace, I wasn't really able to blog it with any sort of accuracy.

So here follows my rundown of last year's resolutions and how I did with them:
  • Practice Tai Chi more (Don't disappoint the Si-Gong/make the Si-Fu lose face).
    Failed. With [livejournal.com profile] batnandu's impending wedding, our regular Tai Chi training fell by the wayside.

  • Go Rock Climbing more (I've got a paid membership at the gym...).
    Failed. I managed to hit the gym once or twice, but not with any regularity. I no longer have the paid membership at the gym, however.

  • Minimize intake of french fries and potato chips.
    Moderate success.

  • [livejournal.com profile] batnandu asked me to add "Increase intake of fruits and vegetables (lettuce doesn't count)" What are you, my mom??!?
    Success. I managed to eat a lot of apples, oranges and bananas last year, and am now, with the exception of mushrooms (poison!) and cilantro, pretty much eating everything I avoided eating as a child.

  • Minimize intake of soda.
    Dismal failure. With my office going Free Soda, I managed to drink more soda in one week than I likely drank in all of 2005. Don't ask me which week, however.

  • Start running (or some other aerobic activity) and increase my cardiovascular endurance.
    Moderate failure. I did manage to get some running in on the treadmill at my place, but that fell by the wayside when I started seeing the PinkGator. I do, however, walk about eight blocks a day on my way to commute via Georgia Tech's Trolley.

  • Keep my place clean.
    Dismal Failure. I realized today, that what I call "cleaning" most other people would call "moving stacks around."

  • Floss.
    Success.
So for the next year, I resolve:
  • Practice Tai Chi more
  • Cook more
  • Stop getting those disposable plastic bags at the supermarket (bring a reusable cloth bag) and the comic book store (bring a box of some sort).
  • Minimize my intake of soda
  • Keep my place clean
  • Sell crap I don't need/use
Hopefully, I'll be more successful at these.

...about working from home because you're waiting for a guy to come repair your refrigerator is getting hungry and realizing that you
  1. can't go out because you might miss the repair guy
  2. can't really order a big pizza, because what do you expect to put the leftovers in if the repair guy doesn't show up?
  3. have nothing to drink aside from lukewarm water
  4. pretty much have nothing unspoiled to eat aside from poptarts and craisins.

When someone in [livejournal.com profile] atlanta asks for a place to get bubble tea in Midtown, suggesting the gigantic megamart off of Pleasant Hill Road in Duluth is quite helpful in the sense that it is not.

Over the course of the day, I have ingested:
  • 1 bowl of Raisin Bran with Vanilla Silk soymilk.
  • 3 cans of Sprite
  • 1 can of Barq's Root Beer
  • 2 fun size Milky Way Bars
  • 2 fun size Twix bars
  • 2 slices of Papa John's pizza with black olives
  • 1 slice of Papa John's pizza with sausage
  • 3 fun size packages of Skittles
  • 1 egg-and-bacon salad sandwich
  • 1 liter of water
  • 1 combo order of Kalbi & Vegetable Dumpling Tofu Soup
  • 1 kid size Honey Ice Cream with Butterfingers from Marble Slab Creamery
  • 1 Vodka Tonic
Damned Tapeworm.

While I'm tired as balls, I'm going to do some Kinetic now.

I just had:
  • 1 barbeque riblet sandwich
  • 1 banana
  • 1 snack cup of chocolate pudding
  • 1 root beer float

and I'm still hungry.

As tagged by [livejournal.com profile] dixiebelle (I killed most of the formatting on this thing):

GuiltWhat is yours? Explain yourself
Culinary: Eggs With a cholesterol level near 240, I shouldn't really have a hearty brunch every weekend, but I loves me some good eggs.
Literary: Manga Ten dollars a pop for about thirty minutes of entertainment is a bit much, but I love a good, well-drawn story.
Audiovisual: Cirque du Soleil 280-some dollars is a helluva lot to pay for nose-bleed section seats, but the music and visuals are always so amazing.
Musical: t.A.T.u. Singing lesbian schoolgirls. What more can you ask for?
Celebrity: Emma Watson Yes, I know that I'm going to hell.

And I tag no one in particular. If you want to do this, feel free...

The latest computers capable of running our application for the client have built-in 802.11b antennae. The users have had a lot of trouble getting the Wifi working (they're the typical user--intimidated and clueless), so as a part of my job, I ran around town today testing with two of the machines.

After eating first at our clients location (free lunch), I hit Lenox Mall to test at the Apple Store, Panera Bread, and the Food Court. I then drove down Peachtree and hit the Panera Bread next to the Imperial Fez, and then continued down to Whole Foods and Dunkin Donuts.

Finally, I hit Aprés Diem where I could connect to their network, as well as the networks for The Independent and The Highlander.

In the immortal words of my former roommate, Je vais vomir.

If you ever go to one of the various locations of The Loop Pizza Grill in Atlanta, GA and consider an individual pizza with the "roasted garlic" topping, please keep in mind that while it might suggest chopped and/or minced garlic, "roasted garlic" consists of WHOLE GARLIC CLOVES scattered all over the six-inch-diameter pie.

Not that this is a bad thing.

Those of you who've known me for a while will probably remember that I used to say that the only Spanish phrase I knew was "Si, pero en el baño hay spaghetti." I was wrong.

My most recent lunch, however, where I spilled a Moe's side order of queso all over my desk, evokes the title of this post.

You know, every time I hit Quizno's Subs for lunch, I consider picking up a bottle of that Batch 81 hotsauce, because it is of the good. It's sweet and spicy and smooth and a number of other positive words which begin with the letter 's.'

And yet, I always leave the place without grabbing one, because I pick up some plastic packets of the stuff, I'm eating a sub which doesn't really need it, or I'm just cheap.

But given how good my turkey club tasted just now, consider this my resolve to buy a bottle the next time I go in.

We love the subs.

Last night, the guys got together for a bit of trivia over at the Universal Joint. We lead throughout most of the game, but only took second place when the team in third answered the final question: "For either Ohio or Virginia, name six of the eight presidents that the state produced."

I'm convinced the third-place team pulled the answers to that one out of their asses cellphones.

Lunchtime today, I hit Pho Hoa for a Roast Pork/Spring Roll Vietnamese Rice Noodle Bowl, anticipating the Pork Sung Bun and Char Siu Bao from the Chinese Bakery afterwards. Not only was the Bakery closed, but the Grocery store was out of the frozen potstickers I was planning on making tonight for dinner.

It seems the world is conspiring to serve me only a heaping bowl of disappointment today. I think the proper plan would be to go home, hole up, and just watch Lost and Smallville over a delivered pizza.

Let's hope the power/satellite doesn't go out.

Things I picked up this weekend:
  • Coupling Series 3 (with a $5 off Best Buy coupon)
  • Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
    Koshun Takami's Battle Royale Vol 7
    Ken Akamatsu's A.I. Love You Vol 3
    Clamp's Cardcaptor Sakura Boxed Set (Vols 4, 5, and 6)
    Make It In Minutes (all under a "Buy 4 books get the 5th free" sale and another $5 Waldenbooks coupon)
  • Michael Chabon's The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay (with a 25% off Borders coupon).





Dear World: Please stop sending me coupons.

Read most of the manga Saturday night; I spent the majority of Sunday watching Coupling, knowing that Series 4 was beginning on BBC America, and found out that Richard Coyle (Jeff) left the cast of the show beginning Series 4. Quite disappointing.

* The title of this post is the catchphrase of dealnews.com, a site which lists all sorts of coupons, rebates, and sales on consumables (mostly consumer electronics and computer equipment).

Despite having a free subscription from Salon.com, I haven't received this month's (or last month's, for that matter) issue of Wired Magazine, which Cap'n Ken kindly pointed out has an interview with Good Eats host Alton Brown.

Go, read. Set your TiVos, TiFauxs, and VCRs. Watch Good Eats.
