My shoulder seems to have been miraculously healed yesterday afternoon, so everything went off without a hitch. I mean, if I poke that spot, it protests, but, otherwise, a-okay. I was somewhat worried.

I read more of Emma on the train this morning. I hadn't picked it up since Christmas. Jane Austen FTW.

I can't imagine there is a single thing on White Castle's menu which is palatable. It is the absolute worst fast food chain conceivable. You can quote me on it. There's one right by my gym. I look at it in disgust several times each week.

This week's holiday schedule is messing me up. I'll experiment with going to the gym in the morning before work tomorrow, I think, if I can get up early enough. Odd thing: my phone's alarm clock just can't be convinced to work. I've tried many times. It makes me mad inside my head.

I'm going to buy some eggs and hard-boil them. We already have eggs, but not as many as I want to hard-boil. This way, I'll have ready-to-go eggs without the worry of having to clean up afterwards in the morning or whenever I want an egg. We have sandwich bread, meat, and cheese, I should have packed a sandwich for lunch. Ham and cheese sandwich == victory for the forces of democratic freedom.

Somebody brought up St. Adalbert and the sacred oak trees after watching Avatar. Coincidentally, while reading about St. Wenceslaus (see previous diary entries), I ran into St. Adalbert's story. I think I prefer St. Adalbert to Avatar. For those missing the reference, St. Adalbert was bishop of Prague and he went to Prussia as a missionary. He cut down the sacred oak trees of the pagans and was martyred for his efforts. Adalbert is a great name, though Wojciech/Vojtěch doesn't sound so great to English ears. St. Adalbert of Madgeburg is also quite interesting - he was sent to St. Olga of Kiev. No chopping of trees, though his companions were slain. Anyway.

It's time for lunch. Not ham and cheese.

get one of those quick 3 minute egg cookers, put it in the office (if HR, facilities and code allow) or keep at home, do eggs every AM..

Or, you know, be a real man..

I'd throw in some milk, cream, and rum. But, man, now you've got me wanting to watch Rocky or some other film with Stallone shirtless and beating people up. Or maybe vintage Schwarzenegger. Can't tonight, though, gotta get up early.

that the mess from the eggshell is bigger than the mess from the boiling.

well, my thought process is this: by gzt (2.00 / 0) #4 Mon Jan 04, 2010 at 10:06:48 AM EST
if I want an egg, like, now, I wouldn't hard-boil it, I'd fry it or something, which necessitates some annoying cleanup afterwards. hard-boiling a batch of eggs leaves minimal cleanup at the time and relatively little later, plus eggs are immediately available.

Do you have good non-stick pans? by garlic (2.00 / 0) #5 Mon Jan 04, 2010 at 11:18:02 AM EST
simply frying an egg should create a similar cleanup to boiling with good nonstick pans. But, prepped ahead of time hardboiled (or quiched) eggs make more sense.

so it cleans up easily, but it's not perfect.
