JAPAN gets a FOOD DELIVERY CHANNEL on their Wiis soon!

Bah! Food delivery is cooler there anyway--look at those categories: there's pizza, bento, sushi, traditional Japanese food, Chinese (e.g. ramen), fast food, curry, etc. :P

In better news, we got to have coffee with [livejournal.com profile] _aurelius. Yay! [livejournal.com profile] _aurelius, besides being one of the top eligible single gentlemen of my acquaintance, is one of the friends I'd most like to get to see more of. :p Anyway, hurrah Facebook for helping us realize that we were in the same place for once. Maybe someday we'll live in neighboring area codes or something.

[livejournal.com profile] assaultdoor noted that they seem to have very similar senses of humor. (Watch out, world ...)

Note to self: taking on Japan with [livejournal.com profile] _aurelius as well as [livejournal.com profile] toratigris and [livejournal.com profile] kyspaz would be even more fun! (But Wikipedia claims Ise won't be rebuilt till 2013, so bah. I need to go to Japan before that, I think. NEED.)

Subterranean Press has re-published Barry Hughart's legendary fantasy-China mystery novels The Chronicles of Master Li and Number Ten Ox!
Boy, I sure hope he's getting some money from this, but as I recall, they're good people, so I reckon he is. It's an omnibus with all 3 books.

YAY!

Now, I'm not quite sure what's going on, because I only see a sold-out thingie at SP's page, but that may only be for the even-more-limited leatherbound edition, so the above link is to Amazon's pre-order page.

Dear 17 people in Arkansas who donated money to defeat Proposition 8,

Thank you! And thank you for vastly outnumbering the TWO people who donated money to support it! Talk about defying stereotypes.

Lots of love,

California

(No worries, Arkansas LJ friends, I know none of you are rolling in dinero right now, and there are many MANY other good causes. Also, I suspect this widget isn't fully functional, because it doesn't show my donation in the Fremont listing--hmm, maybe I should donate again...and also, although I know this data is a matter of public record, I still think it's weird that I can look at it.)

(OMG, Missouri, which is where I was born--143 donations against. 14 for. <3!!! Even Texas has 593 donations against versus 106 for.)

Good news!

Apple came through this time.* They'll be shipping me a new battery; I'll send them back the swollen old battery. (If they look at it and think I faked it, they'll charge me $129, but since I didn't fake it, we should be good.)



*Please see previous time wherein they charged me $700 to replace an LCD screen that broke under totally normal use.

Woohoo!

It's in my hands. Well, OK, it's a few inches from my left elbow. Woohoo! Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] deyo and [livejournal.com profile] mactavish!

So, yeah, nag me to clear off a desk and actually use it.

10 points to House for mentioning that being tired all the damn time can be caused by sleep apnea. They never mention that in these shows (especially not if the patient isn't overweight).

  • Opera company GET!
  • Wine bar GET!
  • Daiso Japanese "dollar" store** GET!
  • Spicy Town*** GET!





* As the fourth-largest city in the Bay Area, it's not a town, but it mostly feels like one.

** AMAZINGLY THIS IS EVEN COOLER THAN IT SOUNDS. I was actually stunned by how big it is, and what a wide variety of stuff it has. I've been to a few other Bay Area Japanese discount stores and they don't really compare. I'm pretty certain it's going to appeal to everyone, not just the Japan-freaks who will be grooving on the Rip Slyme playing over the audiospeakers, because hello, $1.50 jewelry-making pliers in 12+ varieties, not to mention folding bookshelves, grid guidelines for hanging pictures, a glass-etcher, decorative scrollwork decals for windows, aprons, bunny ears, frog-shaped neck pillows, all sorts of wooden back/neck massage widgets, plush apple-shaped kitty beds, fairly well-crafted real wood dollhouse furniture, bamboo knitting needles, earthquake-proofing items, weird little wooden signs, cut-glass teacups, blah blah blah. Technically, it's in Union City, not Fremont, but whatever. It's basically Fremont anyway. :p

*** I don't know. It hasn't open yet. It's Chinese. I am prepared to love it so that I may sing "Take me down! To SPICY TOWN!" I'm easily amused, OK?

Home!

I'm home! Yay! Didn't think we'd make it, due to American Eagle's major timeliness issues.

(Psst. More **SPOILERTASTIC** post-HP7 details, from an online chat.)
