It's time to eat lunch. I don't know what I want to eat. Something cheap. I didn't get around to packing a lunch. I will update you guys later.
Other things I'm glad our wedding and reception didn't have:
*any sort of thing written by anybody present
*toasts or speeches
Well, really, we could've survived toasts, but there wasn't time. And, okay, the programs were written by somebody present.
What should I steal from my wife's book collection first: poetry or novels? Fiction or non-fiction?
Our building does not have recycling, but some of the adjacent ones do, as they're small enough to have City garbage service. One of the tricky parts about our moving in is that we have to sneak our cardboard into our neighbors' recycling bins. Not too much in each one, since we don't want to bogart their recycling capacity, but not so little that I have to hike very far with giant piles of cardboard in my arms [very suspicious]. Life: tricky. I guess that's what happens when you're popular enough to get twenty billion gifts shipped to you, have twenty billion of your own boxes to move, and get thirty metric tons of cardboard waste from Ikea. The best solution would be to figure out what day the City garbage service comes and head out in the morning to stuff all the non-full recycling bins. Everybody wins then. But Mother Earth is the greatest benefactor. Remember that, kids.
Idiot. So some fool on another message board was wondering where he is supposed to meet girls, since the ones at bars and clubs are all w----s. And he lives in a terrible city (coincidentally, mine) where most girls are "S*UTS" he might as well move elsewhere. I posted a reply saying that the term is reserved for people who trade sex for pay and that the preferred terms are usually "prostitute" or "sex worker". Not that I've never called anybody any of those names [see these diaries], but I submit I've always used them in the context of sex-for-pay. Anyway. I may have been trolled.
Congo: man, Belgium kind of sucked there. I was reminded of that by this scathing review of a book http://www.nationalinterest.org/Article.aspx?id=22364 .
