Antisocial. Yep.

I'm annoyed by people in general. Especially people who persist in acting senselessly when faced with overwhelming evidence of awfulness. I.e. my sister and my friend. They could be twins in willful ignorance.

Hate it. Hate it. Hate it.

The Ephemeral Nature of Chinese Food

So we tried to eat at a new sports bar-type restaurant that opened today downtown. After nursing our drinks for an hour (!) we all bailed and decided to hit the Chinese buffet for some instant gratification because we were, by that point, starving.

Two plates of mediocre-to-decent generic "Chinese" food later, I was wondering:

What is it with Chinese food that causes you to feel miserably bloated, yet still hungry, for the rest of the day?

I have a suspicion that it has something to do with sodium. I'm drinking enough water to float a small dinghy and I still feel like a lo-mein-filled balloon.

So I'm off Chinese food for a while...

Disposable Entertainment

So maybe I've found a workable alternative to subjecting myself to the scary, sometimes smelly patrons of my local Blockbuster outlet. I bought one of those new EZ-D's from 7-Eleven, the DVD that expires 48 hours after the package is opened. Sure, it's a couple of bucks more expensive than renting from BB, but I think that not having to subject myself to the traffic and the nasty patrons more than make up for it.

Of course, I could always check out movies from the local public library (which I suppose I really should do, since I am, after all, a librarian), but the recent popular movies are never in and I would have to remember to return them. I don't have a problem remembering to return books (because I read them much faster than the due date), but I have some sort of mental block about movies.

Ah, technology. I like it a lot (sometimes).
