Moa: The King of Destruction

(no subject)

The same as any other day, I expect. I played FF9 early in the day, then in the middle of the day, until Curt came home and proceeded to have a very bad weekend. Then we had lunch at Wendy's, where the heat compelled me to order my first Frosty in years. I almost forgot they still had those. We brought most of my novels over from the apartment, along with half a box of miscellaneous junk like cookware that I've never used (a cheese grater?), and gave our pizza experiments another round. This time, it was teriyaki sauce, stir-fry veggies, chicken, and chow mein noodles. Ultimately, most of the sauce just soaked into the crust, and none of the toppings stuck. The crust was too flimsy and soggy to eat by hand, and even eating it with a fork and steak knife was a messy endeavor. But as Curt says, we didn't fail to make a pizza... we succeeded at discovering a new way not to make pizza. We can't really think of any way to make stir-fry sauce thick enough to work as a sauce base, and I can't think of anything to use as a cheese substitute to hold the toppings together except for scrambled eggs... and neither of us is willing to risk getting that wrong. So my stock of food has really only increased by a few cans of clam chowder and my old favorites, the melon popsicles. We got the ingredients for a second go at the ranch pizza, though.

Then it was more FF9, and when it became too late to start watching a movie, I popped in The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies, MST3K version. So I finally know what it was all about... except that only about half of the title really fit. It was incredibly strange and very mixed-up, and I think some of those characters may have been people, but it was hard to tell.

I should be getting the new washing machine tomorrow, if all goes as planned, and that won't take up as much of my day as I expect. The big news is my discovery that many of the strange things that went on in the Fullmetal Alchemist and Here is Greenwood anime series were in fact mere sidestories in the manga, turned into parts of the story by the anime staff. I started reading the latest book of Midori Days, only to discover that I hadn't gotten around to reading the previous one yet (that I can remember), which obviously caught me by surprise. They're both in my queue now, along with lots of other good reading material. I need to get back to the mangazines before the stack grows any taller, but that would cut severely into my slacking off time. I've got a Sudoku contest to remember to enter tomorrow, and there will be Deal or No Deal in the evening. Now I know why Fox ran all their season finales last week... stupid ASSCAR pre-empting even the reruns. I know I've got some racing fans on my list, so I'll say this... if I can understand people not liking Super Milk-Chan and Trouble Chocolate, then you can understand me not liking watching cars drive around in circles all day. Fair's fair?

Darn book.
