Puzzles & Riddles

There's a sushi place in the basement of this building. Between 3:30 and 4, I think they close at 4, they have two-for-one sushi dinners. I think I may start eating breakfast, coming to work, and then holding out until 3:30 for lunch, eating two sushis, and then being fine for the rest of the day. It's not great sushi, but it's not bad.

I need to find something to do this evening after church. The folks might want to play board games, but it has been suggested that we do something without the folks. So now I have to think. Maybe some theater. Improv/sketch comedy. Besides Second City.

I also need to make that freeze ray.

The customer satisfaction survey will be a failboat because nobody could actually get to them to find out the real needs and the lay of the land. After being on the table for six months, they finally mentioned it to the peons it will be grading and they pointed out that it doesn't really address the way they interact with customers in several vital, fatal ways. Not my problem, not my fault.

Maybe we should learn swing dancing. Hopefully the classes at $UNI start after April 17th. It's worth a shot. Or not, you know, I don't know anybody there and it's a lot more fun if you have a bunch of people you know to dance with. I don't really want to meet any strangers.

I had a dental appointment today. I need to floss more and I should consider toothpaste for sensitive teeth. They're right. I'll do that. It was convenient: it's right by my house and the train stop, so I popped in at 8 and didn't even miss my morning train after. They measured my blood pressure, which was odd.

I am hungry NOW. That is the problem with my grand scheme. I also had rather terrible heartburn after the last batch of sushi I ate.

I have been getting heartburn lately. I don't feel it down low, only in my throat. Maybe it isn't heartburn. Whatever it is, it burns a lot very high up in my throat.

I ordered "Till We Have Faces" by CS Lewis because I was thinking about the theme. Eliot's Prufrock has the line about preparing faces for the people that we meet and the title of "Till We Have Faces" comes from a line in the book that says something along the lines of, "How can we see the gods face-to-face till we have faces?" So I've been reflecting on both of those, especially since I think a lot about Prufrock these days, and thought it would be worthwhile to read "Till We Have Faces" to get more context for the other thoughts. Plus, I hear it's a rather beautiful book.

I like things of beauty.

It is made of awesome.

Second City is written sketches. Most of the IO shows is made up on the spot. It's good stuff. Felt is a particularly good show.

Also, the Chicago Improv Festival is in 2 or 3 weeks.
