Semi-Random Thoughts On A Tuesday Night
There are times when the best thoughts are semi-random thoughts - those little snippets of thought that wander through our brains. For your amusement and insight here are my semi-random thoughts from a Tuesday night.
-Had dinner at a Chinese Seafood Buffet, a place called Happy Buffet, off Saratoga Avenue and Steven's Creek Boulevard in San Jose. I had coconut shrimp, seafood ambrosia (a mix of seafood in a sweet cream sauce), vegetable fried rice, a steamed BBQ pork bun, salmon sashimi, and sushi (philadelphia rolls). Washed with green tea. It was excellent. Desert was some small pastries.
-The sun is setting and the sky is a peculiar shade of pinkish blue, with a cool breeze pulling the temperatures down into the sixties. I've closed to apartment up because I suspect it is going to get cold tonight.
-I am listening to Gov't Mule. I'd heard several people whose taste in music discussing it in the chat room, so I bought a CD. Personally, I had never heard of them before. They are excellent and I highly recommend them. It is interesting how good music can fill you up, just like a good meal.
-I started reading Elmore Leonard's "Killshot" last night. I am a big Elmore Leonard fan. He is a very good story teller. So far, the book has been pretty good.
-Living in the Pacific time zone one of the continual challenges in the virtual world is calling your friends. Often by the time I think to call them, as the evening is settling in, I glance at the clock and realize - it is already way past their bed time on a week night.
-Of course, amid everything else, the ordinary things of life continue to roll on. I am going to spend part of my evening paying my bills - the ordinary bills - electricity, gas, cable TV, telephone, ISP, etc. There is something comforting about the universal and ordinary things of life.
