09:27 pm - Pathetic. Even when I'm not posting about coffee, I mention coffee.
I just got back from visiting my sister at the coffee shop. It was probably a bad idea to have gotten a latte on a night when I could get lots and lots of sleep, but I did it anyway. This guy she works with named James stopped in and mentioned that he'd read and liked the story I posted a little while back. This makes me feel both vain and slightly embarrassed.

Anyway, Sarah sent me home with a Ziplock™ bag full of pasta salad. It has yellow peppers, kalamata olives, and feta cheese. Oil and vinegar dressing. It's really good. Sarah has (apparently) gone vegetarian very recently. Her coworkers and recently-acquired friends probably see nothing weird about this, but it was only a couple of years ago that she and her boyfriend (both weighing in at somewhere in the ballpark of "not enough") would cook an entire pound of bacon and eat it in front of the TV every night.

Somehow after all of that, Sarah's still only a microgram heavier than half of Kate Moss. She's making herself a tofurkey for dinner tomorrow.

That's tonight, though. Did I do anything else cool today? Not really. I got my transmission fluid changed, and my car seems to be enjoying it. Yesterday I didn't do anything especially exciting, either. Ellen and I got together after work and ascertained that her Nintendo is dead. She's a little bummed about that. I'd go out looking for a used one to get her for Christmas, but I've already gotten her a harmonica.

Now I'm synchronizing my MP3 player with my PC and trying to figure out why some of the tracks I definitely copied to it on Monday aren't there. Yeah, I didn't tell anybody this because I find it slightly embarrassing, but I got myself one o' those incredibly expensive, fancy, high-capacity MP3 players from Neuros, but I stress that the one I purchased was so incredibly marked down as to be on the comfortable side of affordable (not that I can afford anything else that constitutes "fun" until after Christmas, of course).
Tomorrow morning I'll be up bright and early so I can head over to the parents' place. Fun stuff. I hope everybody enjoys their Thanksgiving.

Aren't you glad you read my livejournal? The excitement never stops around here!

I have a semi-functional Nintendo sitting in my living room. If you have any idea how to fix it, or where to get it fixed, it's yours.

Much appreciated, but I'm not sure what I could do, aside from opening it up and saying "damn." What I think Ellen really needs is to be introduced to the wonderful world of console emulation.

I just won't have the time until post-surgery. If we bring it back up to your parents house, I can waste some time on it. I'll just need some tools my toolbox may not have. Oh, remind me to get new wipers and a scraper for me car before we leaf.

I love trademark symbols. I think it's funny when people use them in an informal forum like Livejournal.

But you're right. I'm a dork.
