my cat is old

November 27, 2005

i have really bad “meeting people you haven’t seen in a while on the street” skills.

ed and mike can attest to that.

happened again today.

saw a bunch of people from high school while walking around the brand new riverside plaza. like six of them.

i didn’t ask “what’s up with you? how’s everything? what are you doing?”


i just kind of blanked. i felt blind sided. i don’t know why this happens.

maybe it’s because i want to know about everything but because that’s not possible, i say nothing.

yet another set of fundamental social skills that i lack.

just what this year needs

so ed (wu, not fong) is in the south pole doing research on gravity waves. i haven’t talked to him in a while. he randomly im’d me at work from the south pole. made me pause a bit because i had to think how i was enjoying oh…civilization at the moment.

in a moment of boredom, i thought “could i visit every 99 ranch store?”

all the best cowboys have daddy issues

November 12, 2005

i’m not a cowboy. nor do i have daddy issues.

but i do love my orange juice.

these social networking sites like friendster and the facebook just drive it more into the ground that i don’t have that many friends. but i prefer to think of it as quality over quantity. only 50 buddies on my aim buddy list. probably more like 40 with all the duplicate sns. and the max is what? like 300?

i don’t think i can even count up to 300.

i tend to have a pretty solitary nature and though it does drive me up the wall sometimes, i’m fine with it. i have a feeling that i got it from my dad. case in point, my dad wants to have a piece of land where he doesn’t have to see his neighbors. which means he’d have to live where crazy loons live.

i went to the cal vs. usc game. it wasn’t a big surprise that we lost but goddamn, where was the fight? ayoob blows and everyone in the stands CHEERED when he was replaced in the 4th quarter. matt leinart had 246 yards while cal had a TOTAL of 279 yards.

does anyone know of a good windows (or even better, os x) client for movable type? please?

this weekend was a blur.
friday: parkside for happy hour. went to ed and mikey’s and somehow we ended up at the pig and whistle. way too many pitchers of beer were consumed. somehow we ended up at lucky penny. i ordered two eggs sunny side up (yum!) with a side of onion rings. then i stuffed a $20 down ed’s pants. night ended at 1am. woken up at 3am because roommate lost his keys. d’oh.

saturday: cal vs. oregon. i hate you ayoob. now cal is unranked. at least ucla lost to arizona. 52-14! can you believe that shit? jyana (mikey’s old co-worker) said she didn’t like curb your enthusiasm. COME ON! donna came up and we had dinner at sushi bistro. their sushi is fantastic.

later that night…
CARDS! due to an end of an era (ed and mikey are moving to seattle), i no longer have access to the following:
dvr + cable (no more skipping the commercials on LOST)
a regular poker game
another couch to crash on
ed’s nuts
making fun of mikey’s jewness.


donna actually stayed for half an hour. she asked me how old jack was. because he looks like he’s 12.

many cards were played. ed folded quads. hah! most people left around 2 or something but me, luke, and ed decided to keep playing. j&d was consumed again.

sunday: wake up and i’m on ed’s couch. that couch is not for sleeping. or sitting. i have no idea what it’s good for. probably the last time i’ll wake up on that couch.

good times…good times.
