notes from underwear

I’m still pretty exhausted, maybe trying not to get sick? So I’m only going to drop some PEARLS on you here:

  1. Today I was getting my powerbook fixed, and while waiting for this I was outside the store reading the New York Review of Books. A guy sat down at the table with his laptop and said “That’s my favorite magazine! Are you a literati too?”
  2. West Costa Mesa’s latest addition to the Christian Aquarium is The Lord’s Gym, where the faithful can build abs and thighs but cannot wear spaghetti straps or bare their midriffs. One may work out to “Christian” music while observing murals and scripture. via OC Metblogs.
  3. At the mall after Powerbook repair I wandered and saw many very beautiful people, 1020 thread count sheets for sale (I had no idea those existed!), and AMERICA! In case you’re curious, AMERICA! is overweight 30-year-old white guys in expensive sunglasses, cargo shorts, flipflops, and surf t-shirts.
  4. On the way home I saw one of the Crazy Recumbent Bike Guys (it’s a type). This one was dressed in a bright yellow marine foul weather jacket that was zipped all the way up and had the hood laced in tight over his face, and also wore sunglasses. He looked like a HazMat investigator gone post-apocalyptic. It was about 75 degrees out.
  5. Tomatoes with sesame-ginger dressing and furikake sprinkled on them are great.

  1. Thread count
    It’s my impression that those kinds of sheets with absurdly high thread count are 1) somehow meant for people with weird allergies or hypersensitivities, and 2) are pretty fragile: bleach them or put them in the dryer on high and they could just come apart.


      1. Re: Thread count
        Oh… I didn’t see that that was a link. My brain says “underline == link” and the particular style of this journal doesn’t really differentiate normal text from a link (other than the gray-on-white is a slightly different shade of gray, which my LCD and/or eyes can’t differentiate.)


      2. Re: The style problem
        If ever a version of Grease Monkey arrives for Safari, then I’ll gladly use it. I’m not a big fan of the OS X Firefox, unfortunately. I really *want* to use it, but am just a little too irked at the sluggishness and some of the UI quirks. Plus, all of my scripts work against the Safari XML data files, and I’d rather not have to rewrite them.


  2. LITERATI FOREHEAD TATTOO – saves time with browsing myspace! I hope the murals are kind of Soviet Worker style. IT’S AFTER THE JOB, WHEN WORK IS DONE, TIME FOR WORKOUT, LET’S HAVE FUN
    You are just a tomato taunter, and it’s no fair. =)


  3. I am all too familiar with CALIFORNIA! But, I recently experienced SWEDEN! home of the rampant aryan models. The men all wear lots of pink and everyone has über hip jeans on.
