Life is really fucking funny. Not once, but twice yesterday I had a “what the fuck?” moment. The first came as the elevator in which I was riding stopped at the second floor of my building where my friend, and ITP-reader, Darren (aka Gentri) appeared. Apparently Darren is taking some training course with New Horizons which has just moved into the building. And then last night as I was having dinner at Six Feet Under with some friends and former coworkers I saw the brother of that young lady to whom I referred in yesterday’s blog (the one that dumped me five years ago). Each encounter was completely unexpected, even if one was pleasurable and the other notosomuch.
As For The Pleasurable Side Of The Evening
Dinner at Six Feet Under was fantastic. Because my friend David still works nearby I picked him up and drove him home where we waited for his partner Victor to arrive. From there the three of us went over to Six Feet Under and awaited the arrival of my former coworker Mitsy, her husband Mitch and their precious six-month old daughter. The meal was even better as we were served by one the prettiest and best waitresses to have ever served me.
This was my first meal at Six Feet Under’s new location, which is but one block East from its old location. The interior is wonderful, but curiously the restrooms are on the second floor and it wasn’t until later that I wondered if they have an elevator so that disabled patrons can use them. Having declared the day a “meat day” at lunch with the consumption of a shrimp and a couple of chunks of chicken I went whole-hog at Six Feet Under by eating a bacon-wrapped jalapeño, some calamari, and the catfish tacos for dinner.
I’d give you an indication of the prices currently at Six Feet Under if not for the fact that my friend David graciously picked up the tab without allowing us to even look at it. Guess I’ll have to return the favor at some time. 😉
Waiting On An Important Delivery Today
I’ve made yet another purchase from Amazon. Hey, it was only $20 how could I not? What did I buy?
A “Sabrent USB-DSC5 Serial ATA or IDE 2.5-/3.5-Inch to USB 2.0 Cable Converter Adapter with Power Supply” (which if you read it fast enough sounds just like “Red Rider BB Gun”)
And why would I want one of these? Because with this apparatus I plan to finally get all of my data collected and organized onto my network attached storage device. No more wondering “Hmmm, I wonder what’s on that hard drive?”
Serenity Now! SERENITY NOW!!!

Happy Birthday To One Of My “Newer” Friends
Since joining Flickr a few years back I’ve met a few quality people. Suspected ITP-reader John, aka HamWithCam, is one of those and celebrating a birthday today. I wonder if any of his meals today will involve Pastry A Go Go or Taqueria Del Sol?
Digital Download Of The Week
This week’s pick has nothing to do with a CD released today. Guns N Roses’ “Chinese Democracy”? Yeah, whatever………
No, instead I want to turn you on to a band that you’ve probably never heard… These United States. Recently I heard a WOXY podcast with These United States and thought their sound was really good. I looked up their latest release “Crimes” as a download on iTunes ($9.99) as well as Amazon ($7.99) and guess where I suggest you go? (Perhaps I should have purchased Amazon stock instead of Apple…)
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – fair
Current Music – listen to the “Sound Opinions” podcast
Website Of The Day – I’m a big fan of the artwork of Mr. Hooper. I still possess one of his smaller works and gave one away to that young lady five years ago upon her departure. I purchased it for her, I thought she should have it.
