I've had almost three weeks off of work. I think I don't know how not to work anymore. It's really strange to me (and possibly scary given the contract-y nature of my work) to not have 100+ mails in my inbox waiting for attention. I am sure that this is lag in getting some big projects off the ground, and I should just chill, enjoy the remaining time off, and not worry that this is some sort of portent.

In a few weeks Karl and I are going to go see Kraftwerk at the 9:30. Then in June, we're going to see Meat Beat Manifesto at a joint in Baltimore. My electro-fan-girlness could not be more pleased. I have a much more immediate connection to Meat Beat, but dear lord... actually getting to see Kraftwerk live? That's a big huge freakin deal.

Steph should be having her baby today. Yesterday was her "offically overdue" day and the plan was that they would induce today if she hadn't had it. So yay! Friday the 13th baby! We didn't get a chance to call her last night and we figured she would be at the hospital or getting much needed rest this morning.

I just made myself some egg salad. Now I'm going to come up with what to cook for dinner and what sort of alcohol I'll be pouring down Karl's gullet tonight as he's had another WONDERFUL week and informed me yesterday that he will want to be really really drunk.

Any suggestions for really excellent, toxically alcoholic, drinkable beverages I can whip up with a semi full bar (if it's a basic, we have it in spades. If it's a non basic that isn't slivovice, absinthe, or poitin we may be doing the substitute thing)?

I could rock a zombie or ten. Of course, that would require stopping on the way home for fruit juice of some kind. I'm currently debating the pros and cons of a quick store run - ask me again around 8.30p or so.

Or hey, shots. We got lemons. We got vodka. And you KNOW we got sugar.

hmm.. the mojitos were good and we still have lime, but the mint has suffered a lot and isn't really useable.
We have tons of really chilled vodka, but only like... two lemons. We could make uh.. lemon/lime drops? heh.
I'm pretty sure we still have some pineapple juice. I could make some weird melon ball type drinks with midori/vodka/pineapple, etc. you usually make those with orange juice, but pineapple is acceptable.

Hehe.. you SO know that we're going going to end up with tall glasses of vodka with random things thrown in until we can drink it without gagging.

Tonight, I would mainline soju if I had to. And I'm saying this with five more subjects to go.

That great huh?

Man...we haven't had soju in a long time. I'm suprised the Korean groups in the area haven't lobbied to have it sold in grocery stores yet.

YET.

In the AYYYYY-ZHUN grocery stores they do I think. Wait, maybe not. I know you can get sake and plum wine at the Lotte mart but maybe not soju. But fuck it, I know where the ABC store is. I have a weird association between soju and first-person shooters though, so we may be forced into playing UT if I pick some up. Might be best to stick with fruit juice or NON-STOP PURE CLEAR LIQUOR for tonight, so we can beat on stuff in WoW or not remember yet another really good Korean horror film.

Speaking of which, be on DVD lookout today - we may have a package or two showing up over the next few days.

mounted
ranked

...so I mostly see us on Gilneas for a while, though we do plan to rock some alts eventually.
