fantasy NBA update

i know, i know. you are just dying to know how i’m doing in my fantasy leagues.

in my head-to-head league, i’ve advanced up to be #1 in the league right now. it’s pretty exciting and pretty close, so we’ll see how the rest of the week goes. it looks like this might be a weak week for me, but we’ll see if my team pulls through. i have a tough match up.

in my rotissere league, i’m ranked in 3rd place and i’m not sure if i’ll be able to get out of this rut. i may have to make some pretty big roster changes, but i’m afraid it’ll weaken me up too much. i guess i’ll decide on that later.

these leagues are kind of fun. they used to take up a lot of time, but my rosters are pretty much set now and i’m pretty comfortable with how my team is set up. i guess it’s just making sure that the right players play on the right days now.


the office is FREEZING right now. i’m told that the heater broke, but what i really think it is is that the company is punishing me for breaking the dress code and coming in with jeans and t-shirts. i do have a jacket, but i feel weird wearing a thick jacket around in the office.

i had to interview someone today in this freezing conference room and he had joked about whether or not these were interrogation tactics used to perform the interview. =P

lunching with dardy and rita

dardy, rita, and i had lunch at the spice islands on sunday in mountain view. this singapore/malayasian food restaurant is one that i’ve always liked since i first tried it a little while ago. dardy told me that he hated the place because the food was awful, so i was a little nervous in trying it out, but it had a few good reviews so i thought it might be cool to check it out.

what i didn’t know was that mountain view plays host to a farmer’s market just down the block from the restaurant so parking was a little tricky. the food was good and it was good to be able to catch up a little with rita and dardy.

afterwards we went to tea era to pick some some roasted barley milk tea. it is probably my favorite pearl tea in the area and i often try to get it when i’m in the area. it seems that i used to be in the mountain view area a lot a while ago but nowadays i am barely ever in that part of town. oh well…

it used to be that when i would go and eat at places i would always have a favorite of mine and i would end up eating the same thing over and over again. going to sushi sams? i’ll have a spider roll, hamachi, and maguro, please. going to miyake? i’ll have the chicken teriyaki, tempura, and california roll bento box, please. i just had my favorites and stuck to them.

recently, i am finding that i enjoy trying out new places and new dishes. while at the spice islands, there was the normal noodle dish that i think i’ve always gotten, but i decided to try something else for variety. it was pretty good. sometimes it’s good for us to break out of our comfort zones, you never know what you might find.

napoleon dynamite

i’ve been resisting the urge the watch napoleon dynamite because i thought that i would think that it is just lame, but i finally decided to watch it tonight.

i’m about 10 minutes into the movie and as suspected i think it is TOTALLY lame. i really tried to give it a chance, but it’s just stupid humor. the movie is slow and as many rave reviews as it gets, i think that this is one part of pop culture that i can do without. i wonder if this is a sign that i’m not part of the “in” crowd anymore. oh, who am i kidding, i never was “in”. =P
