That was a pretty good film.


We laughed, we cried, etc etc. Turns out there's a second run movie theatre just three blocks from R's house. She was suggesting riding the bus to it because she saw it while riding the bus, but when we checked the address, it seemed it was closer to her house than the bus stop. It was a very beautiful movie, not without its flaws, mind you, but it had a lot of good things going for it.

I ordered a cheap-ass desktop yesterday and it should be delivered today. I'll let R use my laptop until we're married because hers is dead and she needs to do stuff. I also ordered a 50' ethernet cable. They come in handy.

I had a peanut butter and honey sandwich for dinner last night. I had heartburn afterwards? I'm not sure what the deal was with that. A quick google says that peanuts should be good for heartburn.

I'm going to the gym tonight. I have other stuff to get done tonight. I don't feel much like getting stuff done. I can tell because I didn't want to read on the train, I wanted to play solitaire on my Ipod. I feel like watching Futurama when I get home, not doing anything productive (besides going to the gym). I don't want to get anything done at work. I'll do it all anyway. It's called "being an adult". But I'll play solitaire on the train. I have to conserve my mental resources somewhere. On the other hand, there's a couple meetings I could go to, so I wouldn't have to do any real work... I'll see how the afternoon goes first.

I think I may start taking fish oil. I'm not much of one for taking pills and supplements and stuff like that, especially for things which I can solve by dietary modifications. But I've heard so many good things about it and it's not feasible to add that much of the relevant fish to my diet, so, might as well give it a shot. Plus, there's a sale (2 for 1).

Okay. I'm going to write a letter during lunch. It's not my turn, but we've been so busy.

I liked Up by georgeha (4.00 / 1) #1 Tue Aug 11, 2009 at 01:38:31 PM EST
be careful of fish oil, it can give you fishy burps, and fishy gas.


definitely the burps by sasquatchan (2.00 / 0) #2 Tue Aug 11, 2009 at 01:54:50 PM EST
and they give me heartburn too, so I quit them..

I hear freezing them helps with the burps. by gzt (2.00 / 0) #3 Tue Aug 11, 2009 at 02:04:25 PM EST
But the heartburn, that doesn't sound good. I seem to get heartburn these days and want to avoid that sort of thing. I'll try it and see what happens.

A good brand helps too by barooo (2.00 / 0) #4 Tue Aug 11, 2009 at 03:36:12 PM EST
I use the good ones from costco (they have two in the Kirkland brand, one is more expensive).  Allegedly, a good test is whether or not they turn cloudy in the freezer (not being the signal of quality).

Occaisonally I get a burp from them, but usually only if I take them on a completely empty stomach.  Having them with my morning latte is enough to overcome it.


man, i need a beefy taco now.

so what do you think of 'em? by gzt (2.00 / 0) #5 Tue Aug 11, 2009 at 04:01:01 PM EST
Do they have noticeable results, or is it the sort of results that you know are there but would have to actually measure to know it's going on? Are you happy with it? Given a family history of thrombophilia that I may or may not have inherited and that I do O-lifting, it's a good idea to use fish oil whether or not I have noticeable results, but it's good to know what to expect...

I dunno by barooo (2.00 / 0) #6 Wed Aug 12, 2009 at 05:01:14 PM EST
I don't monitor my blood pressure or such (although I probably should, it runs in my family and a couple times it's been around 130/80 or so).  The only thing I've noticed is if I don't take it for a few days, my contacts tend to dry out / get blurry / cause other problems.  My previous eye doctor recommended it for healthy tears?

I take two every morning.  Don't know what the nutritional info is.  I may start taking two every night as well.
