11:42 pm - Combat Waitress: The Adventures of Mikuru Asahina
This post is mostly to say that I ate my first flounder. It was flounder stuffed with crab meat, so I think I mostly tasted the crab meat, but the fish part tasted like...fish. It was my first time baking fish in the oven, and it did not prove to be disastrous.

I am also reminding everyone about The Great Winter Road Trip and the associated mix CDs. Get those mixes in the mail soon, folks! Also, I have basically no plans for any of those days, so any suggestions on what to actually do would be appreciated.

Today in our weekly drug safety meeting, we talked about nipple tattoos. Like, tattoos of nipples for women with reconstructive breast surgery. I never mentioned here that at a recent department lunch, we talked about boob rubbing, groin shaving, manscaping, nipple cream, and butt cracks. I really can't imagine working anywhere else.

I can barely stay awake anymore, you guys. I don't know if it's Daylight Saving Time or what, but I sometimes get sleepy as early as eight fucking o'clock. Right now I am too zonked to write a proper post about television, so feel free to discuss the week's shows in the comments. I'm sure I have thoughts, but I simply cannot be arsed to put them in post form.

I am only coherent enough to propagate this meme:

If I had a warning label, what would it say?

And no, "May cause drowsiness" is not an acceptable answer.

No promises, but I have a large quantity of good roadtrip music & might manage to make you a mix. Address?

Fish baked in the oven is yummy! Have I recommended/have you bought TJ's flash-frozen wild salmon before? That's our main fish source, and we've recently started baking it in the oven with some salt and pepper and olive oil on top for about 8 mins at 350. I love how it gets sort of chewy at the edges.

I hope I never ever have to find out firsthand, but reconstructive breast surgery seems like such a not-great choice for most women, especially when there isn't much tissue left to work with. I keep reading about women who had implants of some sort and are very uncomfortable (physically/emotionally) with the results. If I'm ever in that situation, I think I would go with this kind of tattoo instead.

Ooh, interesting! I haven't tried it, mostly because fish is so expensive.

Damn, that's...something.

The beauty of the TJ's fish is that it's cheap! You can get two small fillets for less than $6. It's frozen, but after you defrost the packet in a bowl/sink of warm water you'd never know the difference.

So, is the post title just a non sequitur? Because I was totally expecting something about Haruhi in there.

The sleep thing might be the season. The sun sets by five these days, so a few hours after that your brain starts thinking it's sleepy time. I have a much harder time of late getting out of bed at 5pm on my graveyard shift schedule, too, and I suspect it's because it's dark out.

Yeah, I couldn't think of a good post title, and I'm reading Sigh. And then I thought, hey, this post is about as incoherent and lacking in cohesion (why is there no direct antonym for cohesive??) as Haruhi's movie, so it works.

Heh.

Incohesive should totally be a word. I hereby declare that it is.

Oh God. I can't think of a warning label.

Hmmm. Maybe:

Warning: May Be Taking Copious Notes of Entire Encounter.

Also, hi! I shall be starting my first anime episode shortly.

Warning: he will surprise you!

You cooked! I am so proud of you. It occurs to me you live on your own and you can't possibly subside on restaurants alone but I never really thought about it. What else are you proficient in making?

I sometimes get sleepy as early as eight fucking o'clock.

It's because you're an old, old man, Sunil! *cackles* Your body goes through phases and if it's telling you it's tired, then what can you do other than sleep.

Re: CD mixes, since you reminded me of Go a little while back, the soundtrack is awesome.

My diet essentially consists of Rice-a-Roni with ground turkey, chicken sausage, spaghetti with turkey meatballs, frozen pizza, Trader Joe's salads, and burritos.

It totally is!

Oooh, thanks for the reminder. I have the mixes all made (yes, I made more than one. Sorry, couldn't help myself...), I just need to burn them onto CDs and put them in the mail.

Kickass! Thank you! I look forward to listening to them. The girl who introduced me to Cave In surely has some other great new music for me!

Got them yesterday, thanks!!

And I totally agree that part of the fun of the mix is not knowing the tracklist, but I will totally want it when I get back. Also, hee, you are the second person to make a duo of dichotomous mixes.

Cow! I thought I had commented on your earlier post asking for your address, but it appears I did not! Let us rectify this oversight posthaste.

Also, hmm. Warning: May Cause Loss Of Spare Time.
