Shrike, am I missing something? When were you remodded?

Had a very drama-filled night last night involving a friend. Will probably do a blog entry later, when I'm back from Pittsburgh. My boyfriend's gonna take a shower, then I'll hop in, and we'll go to Comicon.

Stan Lee was there yesterday. Boy, the place sure cleared out when he left. We didn't stand in that gimungous line, but our friends did. I am hearing mixed reviews about whether ticket prices/lines/etc. were worth it.

Boyfriend has a gimongous stack of comics but has spent less than 100 bucks on them since they all ended up being trades. XD I bought some DVDs and two Silent Hill soundtracks that I have been looking for forever. Gonna go raid the floor again today.

Then when I get back, it's time to go do some schoolwork. I think I can make the Wednesday deadline though because I already began work on the project. Other than that it's reading and whatnot.

Looks like the percentage of mods who are Regs is inching back up again.

UPDATE (redux):

brought my laptop and the AirPort Express over to our neighbours. Got it to work no problem using their modem.

VERDICT:

our modem is a piece of shit.

also, cocks.

Yeah, the parade was yesterday.

Bacon is healthy. Doctors say it isn't because they're pushing their anti-bacon communist agenda with obama to pass the new Communist Health system where no American can eat bacon, only the immigrants that steal our jobs.

After watching Battle Melon on Iron Chef America, I decided I wanted to pick up a jicama root. There's a Korean grocery right by the place where we do Sunday brunch, so we bought one.

I have no idea what to do with this thing. There are recipes all over the internet, and I'm sure eventually I'll want to try all of them, but I'm kind of at a loss what to do with this first jicama.

So any suggestions would be hot ;)

hahaha, I spent the last night shouting (and of course dancing, although I couldn't pull off the stunts) that song with friends. Karaoke games are funnnnnnn.

The steak and lettuce rolls with melon and radish sticks sounded really awesome.

Turns out nearly all of my big bag of potatoes has gone off, so I may have to turn to my jicama for the pot roast tonight. I've done pork roasts with apples, and I understand it tastes a little like an apple, so we'll see.

As Der-Lowe can attest, most Americans don't know what the US Open is, or what sport it even is.

I was more looking for videos of forms and the like, this or this than anything.

But really I can sympathize. It's like when I tried to learn guitar. Once i was doing that very basic practice of where fingers go for a cord, the very slow way beginners do like they're afraid the strings might explode, and a Santana video came on.

For me, it was Yngwie Malmsteen. That's when I figured out there was no way I could compete with guitarists like that. So I just started pursuing it as a hobby.

And I am NOT Bedn, I don't do thumbs up.

I flipped out a few people at work today. One of the coworkers in my department is being sexually harassed by this creep from another department, so I informed her that she should inform the HR manager about it so they may know. But before I did that... I took out my pocket knife, and demonstrated (with blade closed) how to effectively dispatch an attacker. Her eyes were huge... but not near as big as the member of management who walked up during the middle of my demonstration.

He didn't really have much to say to me afterwards. He offered up his two cents on my technique, but after all was said and done he said that between me, her, and the hyperactive dude we work with, my department was an HR nightmare waiting to happen. ;-D

I'm not a violent person, I just don't like it when people mess with my friends.

Did Americans invent tennis? I'm seriously asking here. It's long been my theory that Americans can't take a sport seriously if it doesn't come from us.

I'm just obsessing over it because we have been playing really bad football lately.

Argentina 1 - 6 Bolivia
Argentina 1 - 0 Colombia
Argentina 1 - 3 Brasil
Argentina 0 - 1 Paraguay

The last one was HORRIBLE (losing to brazil is quite acceptable, specially considering that they scored early), we took the europeans off the teams and went with the local guys (our best players play in Europe), 35 and 36 each, the strategy reduced itself to lifting the ball on the area and trying to score by headers.
We don't even know if we'll make it to the World Cup.

Comparatively Del Potro is on the final of the US open, playing against Federer, whom he almost beat the last time.
You know, everyone loves a winner.
