It's frigid cold outside. This is another one of those really frustrating winters. It's been stupid cold, cold enough to cost me two car batteries and a garage door opener, but only one good snowfall.




In case you can't make it out, this is a bumper sticker that says "MARRIAGE = [picture of a MALE from the bathroom door] + [picture of a FEMALE from the bathroom door]"

Stupid people make the baby Jesus cry.
Okay, this is too good not to post.

I think the "what states have you been to" meme has reached its bandwidth limit.
Okay, maybe the squeaky wheel does get the grease. No sooner do I bitch about no snow than it starts snowing outside. We'll see if it amounts to anything.

We desperately need to get groceries, so there really wasn't anything good at the house for lunch. I decided I wanted to get something healthy, not your usual Arby's/McDonald's/Wendy's/Spangles fare. I figure a lot of asian food is good if you can avoid the places that fry everything and stick MSG in it all. But I didn't know of any places like that near my house or my work. So I just started driving around. What do you know, look what I found less than two blocks from my work:



Granted, I got sweet & sour chicken which is fried, but they didn't charge me anything extra to upgrade from steamed to fried rice! Steamed rice = fried rice? Better rice for the same price? Nice.

Thank you, I've been working on that for at least four minutes.

Now to see if I get an actual Fortune Cookie or just a Witty Saying cookie.

Chinese food update

Well, the chicken wasn't very good, and neither was the rice. I don't think I'll be going back there. :-(

As for the Fortune/"Witty Saying" cookie: it's almost a fortune, but not quite. I can't figure this one out.

So just now I was perusing random journals out of boredom, not really looking to add any new friends at this time, and came across the journal of cygnoir. I am just happy that there are people out there who know how to write well. So I checked out her bio page and found a quote by Ray Bradbury - a quote that I desperately need to learn how to live:
"If we listened to our intellect we'd never have a love affair. We'd never have a friendship. We'd never go in business because we'd be cynical: 'It's gonna go wrong.' Or, 'She's going to hurt me.' Or, 'I've had a couple of bad love affairs, so therefore ...' Well, that's nonsense. You're going to miss life. You've got to jump off the cliff all the time and build your wings on the way down."
I dig that.

A lot.


I am pretty sure that the Internet is the coolest thing ever.
Anyone got the Rising Star remix of this?

P.S. I will not rest until Vincent & Quentin - Freeway (Ralphie B mix) is mine.
Okay, what the f*ck happened to hip-hop? I know I've mentioned this before, but jeezy creezy, have you turned on BET or MTV Jams lately? WTF is that sh*t? It's absolute and utter crap. The videos are ALL the SAME THING. The "music" is ALL the SAME THING. The sh*t takes absolutely no talent and no creativity whatsoever - it's just a bunch of guys yelling "UH UH YEAH". Jesus.

Oh, and did I mention that that's ALL Drea listens to?? EVERY GODDAMN TIME I turn on the TV, it's on one of the aforementioned channels. Jesus.

On the bright side, the song I'm currently listening to seems to be reasonably good. I caught the video for it today at lunch when I turned on the TV and it was on MTV Jams. I was convinced based on the music, the lyrics, the fashions sported by the guys in the video, and the look of the video itself, the style of the music, everything, I was convinced that this was a mid to late 80s track, but then the guy said something about blowing something up like the World Trade Center, which means it's two years old or less. Interesting. Dude has the 80s style Kool Moe Dee flat top and sunglasses and some old style fashions. And the lyrics are actually moderately interesting, the song has a real nice old school beat, none of this super fast hi-hat bullsh*t they are playing with now. Nice flow.
Tandra says it's getting slickery outside. Maybe I can replace this icon with one of the Miata. :-)
