I had a steak for dinner Saturday night. I haven't had a steak in about 10 years. It was f*cking good.
We had gone out to Fort Green again for a party (different hosts this time) and by about 9pm we were all realizing that we hadn't had any dinner, so six of us ventured to a place that was enthusiastically recommended by one of the party-goers.
I ordered the pepper encrusted filet mignon - medium rare.
As a recovering vegetarian, this may have been the last step in my therapy. I think I have successfully eaten about everything I had avoided for so long.
So 'yum' in fact, I sent Matt an email this morning:
We stumbled across a restaurant last night and liked it so much we plan on going back next weekend.
It's in Clinton Hill / Fort Green.
I think (if you know what's good for you) you and your gal-pal should tag along.

I will write more about it after we go back - I don't want to jinx it.

Dude, I can out-shop the best of you. I don't mean to toot my own horn, but I shopped the hell out of manhattan Sunday. I wanted a turtle-neck sweater, but ended up buying one turtle-neck sweater, 2 turtle-neck/mock zipper cardigan type sweaters, 2 crew-neck sweaters, and a pair of pants - and I didn't buy anything over 30$.
I shopped the hell of broadway between canal and bleeker.

But, wait. I bought five sweaters. That's just screwed up.
For fun, tomorrow I will wear all five.

Thanks to everyone who placed Christmas orders via the amazon search thing on happyrobot. You all rock - the staff will hopefully be getting some trinkets in the next couple of weeks.

Gulf War
You know, I can be an arm chair analyst and say that Gulf War II is all about oil, and having two oil-pricks in the white house, and SUV's, but you know, it's not that simple.
It's a lot about our general car culture, yes, but it's also about the fact that we are such babies about drilling oil in our own backyards.

I also think we gotta stop pawning our garbage off on other countries / states / towns. If manhattan produces 400 zillion tons of trash per day, that trash should go in a landfill in manhattan. Yea, it will stink, but it's our trash.

Kind of a responsibility thing. We aren't very responsible (I know I'm not - 5 sweaters!).

when llama's go bad

I got new RAM for my computer Friday (that is after a certain company's mailroom took their sweet time bringing the package to me). New RAM rocks - but I hate installing it. I always feel like I am about to break something.
You have to push so hard to get it in.

Back to the Future
It seems like there is a lot of excitement for the Back to the Future DVD set. Someone recently told me they got it, and I thought they were joking, but apparently it's a big thing.
Sure, BTTF was a fine movie, but the second one? And the third one?
Am I missing something?
(I can't believe I used the abbreviation "BTTF" - please be aware I was using it in an ironic manner)
