It is really not easy to get a good picture of a fortune cookie fortune! But it came at a very appropriate time as I was dwelling a bit too much on the past, recent and farther back. Maybe that’s a natural by-product of aging, everything holds memories, stuff in my apartment, places around DC — I have been here for 10 years tho, so it’s not entirely unexpected. The one constant theme is that I rarely run into the people in my past, former friends, ex-boyfriends, co-workers, etc. DC isn’t that large a place but it’s still pretty rare that our paths cross.
I headed out to diner dinner at Plato’s last night with Gregory. I’m pretty sure I’ve been there with Mike and Mikey before and I know I’d been there the morning after a fairly bad date/trick/whatever quite some time ago. I wasn’t in the mood to cook or order out and breakfast for dinner sounded yummy. It was good fare but the usual for a diner, the bacon great, homefries great, eggs kinda adequate and pancakes great. I can never finish a “Full American Breakfast” anyway so I try to leave the pancakes for last as a sort of dessert. After dinner he was nice enough to drive me back into town since I don’t mind taking Metro home but the winds last night were insane and it was COLD. I mean I know that the weather is the default conversation topic when you can’t think of anything else to talk about, but this stuff lately definitely merits talking about.
I love cheapies and freebies. Kraft put an Active Gaming section on their website, I suppose in an effort to counteract all those pudgy kids that can’t stop eating their Mac & Cheese and they were giving away (after shipping) a USB dance/game pad. I have constantly mentioned that I always want to play DDR when I see a machine out but that no one will do it with me, so now I can play (embarrass myself) in the privacy of my own home. I’ll call it aerobics, it’ll help justify my case for getting a Wii, whenever I can actually FIND one.
Today’s YouTube insanity comes from Shinichi at shindotv: Tyra Banks Goes Insane. I don’t watch Tyra but the clips I see on YouTube are usually pretty hilarious. She goes after Oprah in this one and it’s pretty good but you know Tyra’s got to take it to the extreme.
Still, I think I might have to hit the CVS today after work…
