As I just got done viewing the exquisite art film, "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle," I thought it was only appropriate to entitle this blog in the movie's reflection. Man, that was a funny, funny movie. Really dumb, but worth every minute of my relatively short life on this earth. It truly reminds me of the fun I COULD have been having in college had I not applied myself and taken it so seriously.
Unlike Harold and Kumar, White Castle food was not on my craving list. I was craving veggies all day long actually. And oh how yummy those veggies can be.
I had my carpet cleaned today and the chemical smell is absolutely disgusting. I seriously think it's going to affect my offspring! What the heck do they use in that stuff??? Needless to say, I spent many hours with the window open just to air it all out! Next time I have that done, I'll make sure I'm out of town for the week! Yikes!
One of my favorite pastimes as of late is the innocent flirting with the guys in the fish market (if for no other reason, to ensure the receipt of the freshest fish). I don't know what it is, but it seems that whenever I go into a store with a fresh fish section, there are always some nice young men trying to get me to take their fish out of the case (don't read too far into that one). Out of all the dudes (e.g. the produce dudes, the meat dudes, the deli dudes, and the check-out dudes), the fish dudes seem to always be the friendliest and most flirtatious. Hmmmm.....why is that?
Well, finally purchased and downloaded the complete U2 collection on iTunes. Will I put them all on my iPod (which I also finally charged up after receiving it for xmas)? Perhaps, for now, it's fun to just get back into the year 2005 where 12 year olds everywhere have a better grasp on the technology than I do.
Speaking of which, going back home to Iowa, I have almost given up on the six remote controls needed to operate my family's stereo/digitalcable/vcr/dvd/tv, etc. I just want to be able to turn to channel 36 and watch Food Network, but now there are all these crazy buttons and this needs to be on that channel and then you go to this menu and this menu and then...
Yeah, OK, I have the $12 cable here in MPLS. I have maybe 30 channels, most of which are crap. I could certainly afford the upgrade, but really, why? You can subscribe to 300 channels and still find nothing to watch. Plus, here in the cities, you really don't need to pay and arm and a leg for good shows. All you have to do is turn to the public access channels and I guarantee you, you will be thoroughly amused...from drag queens to bible beaters to elementary school talent shows to Somali talk shows....everything is right here in the city.
