Back is still killing me. It just feels weird, like there’s something stuck in my backbone.
Steak, shark’s fin soup, and abalone for a Wednesday night dinner. I really gotta learn to cook like my mom.
Too bad it’s not for me. Anna got her dream car. An electric blue Cooper S (with nav too). I test drove it with her last year. It’s not as small as it looks. Well, she doesn’t need to fit much in there. It’s just her and her violin. Yay for her. She deserves it after driving that other car around forever.
Happy Birthday, Ant.
Wow, I forgot what color my car was. It’s been so long since I last washed it. It’s been brown for the last few months.
Since I have a faster computer now, I thought I’d do a little customizing with some of the lovely tools over at Stardock. I love eye candy. I can’t stop playing around with it.
And my back still hurts…a lot.
I just took apart my entire computer and stuck it in another case. Impressive, no? I am officially a geek now, but good thing no one knows. Too bad my back hurts like crazy right now from hunching over the machine that was on the floor. I don’t know how people can do that for a living.
I watched Chasing Liberty 3 times in the past 72 hours. Is that too much?
Hmm…what is there to watch on Thursdays, now that Friends is over. Oh, I forgot CSI is still on. So sad for all the Friends lovers out there. I saw this funny T-shirt. Hahaha….
…is named El Cheapo because it was kinda just thrown together. I got a really cheap case that doesn’t allow very good airflow. The power supply blocks the fan, so the cpu gets really hot because the fan cannot get enough air in there to cool it down. So the power supply now sits on top of my computer, with all the wires hangin out the back. Talk about ghetto.
There’s this Chinese family that lives a couple of houses up from me. Two of the ladies, who look like they might be in their 70′s or 80′s, usually help an older man walk up and down our street. At the pace he walked, I would guess that it took him about 15 minutes to walk past 1 house. The would be out walking everyday. Sometimes, I would stop by and carry on a conversation with them, with my horrid Chinese. One day, I realized I hadn’t seen them out in a long time. Finally today, I saw the two ladies outside. As I walked by, I asked them how they were doing. To confirm my hunch, I asked them about the old man. The lady gave no answer, but only shook her head. There was an awkward silence. What are you supposed to say after that? Then the words “take care” popped into my head. That was the last thing I said to them before walking to my car to drive off to work.
It made me think about the old couple that lives next door to me. The woman’s daughter committed suicide last year. The woman herself is dying of lung cancer. We often live day to day, not realizing that death is very much alive.
I’ve been renting a lot of movies lately because of all these 99 cent rental coupons. I just watched Kill Bill. Man, there’s a lot of blood spraying around in that movie. I’ve rented 6 movies this week. I have one more coupon for another 3 movies, but I don’t know what else to rent.
I’ve put together half of my new computer so far (of course, with the help of my very own computer pro…thanks Ant). Actually, I mostly watched because I don’t know a thing about hardware. I don’t think I’ve really seen the inside of a computer closeup before for that matter. Ha. Pretty neat how everything works together the way it does. I just picked up the video card and memory today. I have to wait for the fan and then we’ll be set. It should be super fast compared to this old thing. Now I can do more in less time, yay. Ok, I’m getting too excited. I need to stop writing about it now.
