- Listening to Modest Mouse's Good News For People Who Love Bad News over and over and over again. "Everyone's a building burning with no one to put the fire out. Standing at the window looking out, waiting for time to burn us down."
- Brand-new little falafel kiosk opening up over on Newark Avenue, along with a new kebob place I haven't yet tried. I mean, I like them, but there's only so many masala dosas a man can eat, ya know?
- Two very nice sessions at the tables Saturday and Sunday nights, allowing me to eat that falafel and pay my rent without having to worry about my rapidly-coming-to-a-close unemployment benefits. [Hand of the weekend: I have pocket fives in late position and raise pre-flop (I'll do this on occasion). The flop comes Q-5-3 with the Queen and 3 being clubs. Lots of action on the flop (three bets called five ways), so I know that at least one person is on a flush draw. Turn is an offsuit deuce, a slight worry, but nobody jumps. And the river: well, it is a club...the fourth five! Oh, that was a nasty surprise to the guy who raised my river bet. Lots and lots of chips...]
- Having a productive day with the job search, though it was one of those productive days that might not have actually produced anything, if you know what I mean.
- Having On Demand digital cable and being able to watch the last two episodes of both the Sopranos and Deadwood over the last two days. If Ian McShane doesn't get the Emmy I'm suing everybody.
- I finally got past that one pain-in-the-ass level on Couronne Training.
- Tomorrow is the annual Museum Mile Festival, with more free culture than you can shake a Brancusi at. I'll be attending with my sister, who likes the free stuff.
