Prime Rib Pasta

Today's Manga: Tokyo Pet Shop of Horrors 2, Aoi House in Love 2 (the last one... weird), Tarot Café 7 (also the last one, but I haven't really kept up... it's next after Sakura Taisen and Shutterbox), Strawberry Marshmallow 5, Me and My Brothers 4 (also needs to be on the list... I should at least know what this series is about!), Welcome to the NHK 7, and Gakuen Alice 3. All at Borders... none of the other stores had anything I really wanted, although there was a new Dane Cook CD at Best Buy. I just didn't feel like paying for just one thing. I also got the Nana live action movie at Borders at a discount. They've stopped handing out register coupons, and the E-mail ones are rare and lame, but when they have books that B&N doesn't have, that's where I'll buy them. I completely forgot about wanting to get Venus Versus Virus until I found a copy of the second book blocking Welcome to the NHK 7 from view (with a special order return slip in it, no less), but I think B&N has that series. I'll get it next weekend.

I discovered today why my take-home pay after deductions two weeks ago was about as much as my usual total pay before deductions... they gave me overtime instead of comp time. Oh well... overtime pay is still time earned, and I've got over two weeks of use-or-lose leave left, and plans to use them. Sort of.

I really wasted a lot of time today, mainly playing old video games I've beaten before, but that's what a weekend is supposed to be about. I'll prepare for the trip tomorrow, as usual - for once, my flight out is in the early afternoon, so there's much less time pressure than usual. I did that on purpose. It's not as if I ever rest properly the first night anyway. But we went out for our second of five dinners at O'Charley's by the end of August (the fifth entree will be free), and I tried two dishes I've never had before, the coconut shrimp appetizer (free with coupon) and the prime rib pasta. The shrimp were okay, but the pasta was excellent. Great sauce, great pasta, good meat, and the asparagus was a nice touch. I didn't even really notice the bacon, but I'm sure that helped too. I even managed to have a whole slice of Key Lime Pie, although while we were waiting for that, a pipe burst under the drink machine right near us, and the mop they used to clean it up smelled really bad. No harm done, though.

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
