went to *bux today to use up some more of the gift card that i got from warren’s. the walk to *bux was actually a little bit longer than i thought it would be, but maybe that’s because it is cold, windy, and almost wet.

yeah, almost wet. it wasn’t raining, it wasn’t drizzling, it’s just that the atmosphere just feels like it’s about to rain. almost like a thick fog…

some people gawk when they see me put about three teaspoons of sugar in my caramel macchiato. it just isn’t sweet enough for me, ok? =P

oh yeah, the whole reason i started this post was because i saw someone refer to starbucks as *bux. silly, really.


another cold, wet day

i like the rain. i like it when it is raining and i’m sitting warmly at home, nice and dry. i do not like driving in the rain. i do not like walking in the rain, either. so far today, i’ve had to walk in the rain to get to my car only to drive my car in the rain to park it so that i can again walk in the rain.

why did the day take this sudden turn for the worse?

well, what’s worse is wearing baggy jeans that drag on the wet ground. that’s why today, i decided to wear a belt and to wear my jeans higher than normal to minimize my wetness. indeed, it seemed like a good strategy, but it is a little uncomfortable.

no matter, it is friday and i’m eager to get some work done and plow through the day so that i can go back home and comfortably stay warm. that’s the plan and i’m sticking to it.

days like this make me want to just stay in, though. maybe i’ll take advantage of the [url=http://www.brookstone.com/shop/product.asp?product_code=403147&search_type=search&search_words=backgammon&prodtemp=t1&cm_re=Result*R2C1*A]3-in-1 game set[/url] that my sister got me for xmas and learn how to play backgammon. i’ve never learned how to play it before so it’s interesting because i’ve seen it from forever ago. i do wonder why it is that i never learned the game and always opted to play checkers instead.

anyhow, it seems like a fun game, so we’ll see how it really is in action.

i never realized that this was a betting game, though. very interesting! i wonder what kind of bets will come out of this game. maybe we will play a penny a point or something. we’ll see.


korea house, poker, and no television

i didn’t watch any tv last night. this is sort of a big deal because now i’m sure that i’m many hours behind in my tv watching schedule. oh well.

last night mia got a few people together for dinner at korea house. i do love korea house. so mia, leeya, nelson, shirley, and i feasted on lots of meat and other side dish joys before heading over to poker night. it seems that people are showing up later and later every week, and though i say that it starts at a given time, i don’t think anyone showed up until an hour afterwards.

we had a surprise blast from the past guest last night, a friend of shirley’s who happened to go to high school with me. i was surprised to say the least. it is such a small, small world.

but with all of that, there was no tv to be watched. i have the sports illustrated swimsuit model search on the replay just waiting to be watched. perhaps that will be tonight’s festivities.

my shoulder’s still bothering me a bit. i haven’t been very diligent about strengthening it after the big fall so i guess i ought to before i reinjure myself.

last day of the week, i’m excited. this weekend ought to be a little relaxing, but i want to make some chocolate chip cookies before sunday night’s game so that the team and i can snack on some cookies while we play volleyball. it’s the start of a new season, i hope it’ll be a lot of fun…i just have to think up of a new cheer for the team. hmmmmm.
