Went home for lunch today, and cooked. That’s a . and not a ! because it’s not remarkable in and of itself, I pretty much had to, I don’t have anything left here in the office fridge except some cheese and bacon and a couple of cups of sugar-free Jello. Still, it was nice, it felt good, and it was scrumptious.
Grilled (electric George Foreman style) Petite Sirloin steak from Albertsons, a nice Portabellini mushroom, and topped it off with thin slices of Jarlsberg (swiss) cheese. Had a good hearty lunch, and have plenty of steak left over for stuff the next day or two. My cat, of course, approved of the steak. I think it needs better spicing, but my spice selection is still tiny, it’ll come in time.
I really need a decent Wok.
Update of the Day: Got Windows 7 (Build 7068) running on my gaming rig at home last night, and basically functional. Testing out the “maybe this will run better with a fresh OS install, as well as being able to address all 4GB of RAM” concept. Didn’t unfortunately have time to give it some serious evaluation – which means actually playing and working on leveling in WoW, with combat, looting, etc. If I still get the occasional random hitching, then it means either that one of (or a combination of) the addons I use is the culprit, or that I simply need to get some hardware upgrades done. Finally met a friend I’ve been communicating with via Twitter and other social network sites and a little on the phone last night. She’s attractive, intelligent, funny, a bit geeky. Someone I could definitely either just have as a friend, or date. Not a clue what she thinks of me in return.
Was starting to get concerned about someone else, I just found out she lost her phone. Got the bottle of Penfold’s Bin 28 Shiraz (I think ours is a different year though) from James (my direct boss, and our CIO) yesterday. I was pretty sure I have a corkscrew . . . but if I do, I was unable to find it last night. There’s a chance there’s still one hiding in a box somewhere, but I think I’m probably just going to have to buy another. Seriously, this’ll be at least 3, if not more, corkscrews I’ve bought in the last 2 years. That doesn’t count the one I ran off at New Year’s Eve ’07 to help Ganit acquire.
Link of the Day: Wall-E Computer case – one of the most intensive custom case jobs I’ve ever seen. Note: LOTS of images, long load time.
