Been spending a lot of time with my aunt. Mostly trying out different restaurants around the city. Got roast duck won ton, which wasn't bad. The roast duck was tasty nomnomz, the wonton was kind of meh. I like the kine I make better. Also hit up the roast duck place on Irving to get regular roast duck. That was total nomz. Also went and got crab from Crustacean. HOLY CRAP. Once I got over the whole getting my hands dirty part, which thankfully eating shrimp/prawns in HI has broken me of, it's a lot easier. It was kind of weird being in a nice restaurant wearing something nicer than a t-shirt, cracking crab open and getting your hands all dirty. Whatever.

Still looking for a jorb. I emailed my old boss back in HI and asked if he's heard of anything. He hasn't but he's going to try bug the hiring manager back at my old work to see if they can hire me. I'd have to move back home, but at this point it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make. I've been interviewing with this other company in SJ for some software engineer position so we'll see how that goes, but I'm not holding my breath.

Got all my grad apps in a couple of weeks ago. UH in their brilliance decided to close their application site for most of February, at the height of application season. Thank god that wasn't due until middle of March. Speaking of really, really smart things the HI gov does. They recently repaved most of the streets around my parents house. Wonderful right? Only now board of water supply is digging everything up and moving the water mains. Really guys?! Really?! Why didn't you think about doing this BEFORE they repaved? Streets are maintained by city and county. Board of water supply is part of city and county. You would think they would have the brains to coordinate this kind of thing. Go HI they go try stay smart.

Randomly marathoned Babylon 5 last week. Dude, I forgot how awesome that series is. Still working on season 5. For some reason it's not as exciting as seasons 2-4. Londo and G'Kar remain my favorites. Londo actually makes me very sad. His character arc is just depressing when you think about it. Talk about tragedy.

I also marathoned Pirates of the Caribbean. I forgot how terrible the second movie was. And the third wasn't that much better. Did love the UST between Elizabeth and Jack though. Actually Elizabeth had more chemistry with Jack and Barbossa than she did with Will. Could be because Orlando Bloom can only make that one face. Lol, Erin you know which one I'm talking about.

I've also been watching Skins. Wow, talk about shitty. Series 4 is some grade A crap. I'm not entirely sure I even care anymore. So far the only good episodes have been Katie's and JJ's. That's 2 out of 6, I haven't seen tonight's ep yet, but I've heard it's another hour of, "LOL WTF IS THIS REAL LIFE?". I really don't know how they could have gone so wrong. I mean really, series 3 was good, so they had a solid foundation. You'd figure it'd e hard to screw up, but they've somehow managed. I have no idea why they decided to go in the direction they did, but I think a preschooler could have written a better series.

OMG. So I started re-watching Firefly. I've forgotten how amazing this series is. Clearly this means I'm not going to get any work done this weekend. I say this after spending the entire day at the lab watching the Olympic judo matches, lol. Dude, it's scary how some of the women in the judo matches look like guys. Like the one from Brazil in the 78kg weight class. Holy crap. I was so confused for the first minute or so of that match.

I love the characters and their interactions. Kaylee! And River! And Wash! And Mal! The entire cast rocks their parts. The writing is awesome. It's brilliant, fucking brilliant. WTF was Fox's problem.

Also, those of you who don't think Firefly is awesome are false, and should be burned and died.

I'm kind of sad that I'm not watching this with other Firefly fans who could quote and squee along with me. Sad panda.

(I also realize that when I get back to SC I'm going to have to watch all those Babylon 5 DVDs that I got from Costco. Ideally, I'll be able to rope a couple of my housemates into watching them with me. Sci-fi nerds unite!)

Crystal: yesterday at ryuta's house, we watched the movie event horizon
Crystal: reminded me of babylon 5
Me: clearly it's a sign for you to watch the rest of it
Crystal: mm
Crystal: it was kind of a crappy scifi movie
Crystal: reminded me of serenity too
Me: hey!
Me: serenity isn't a crappy movie!
Crystal: yeah
Me: yeah it is or yeah it isn't
Crystal: the latter I guess

If I weren't so attached to her, I'd have to dump her for that. Clearly the girl has yet to discover the awesomeness that is Summer Glau and Serenity. Also, I splurged and bought all five season of Babylon 5 from costco before I left for North Carolina. It's still in SC, so if anyone in the area is interested give Crystal a call to borrow them. It's a really awesome series that everyone should watch.
