I made a New Year’s resolution last year to read two books a month. I failed miserably and only read 14 books the entire year. Still a pretty good amount, but I definitely didn’t reach my goal. My list for 2007: Gould’s Book of Fish by Richard Flanagan Being Dead by Jim Crace Life of…

I was accosted by a homeless man on a bicycle in Irvine. Someone alert the authorities. The gestapo isn’t doing a good job of keeping the riff raff out of Irvine and making it that model planned community it was advertised as. I just realized I was actually in Tustin when this happened, so good…

I finally saw Rain Man. I realized I had seen most of it before on cable, but never all the way through. I don’t know how anyone can watch that movie and not say “definitely” at the beginning of each sentence for the next few days. Definitely, definitely hard. I also recently completed my anime…

My cousin, who is about a month younger than me, is engaged. All I could type was “what?” when she told me, and then I kept thinking “holy shit” in my head. She told all the relatives the other night at the Chinese New Year gathering, and I wish she had a camera so I…

I went to Wendy’s for lunch today, and on their value menu I saw a brand new sandwich called the “Stack Attack.” It claimed to be a double cheeseburger, and being the adventurous type I decided it would go nicely with my nuggets and chili to complete my healthy meal of veggies/poultry/meat.

My post-college employment so far includes a company of five employees, a company of around 25 employees, and a company with a perverted CEO that hired models as “content producers” so they could tramp around the office. I won’t name that certain company, but it rhymes with “Aperican Ammarel”.
