Then, I went on to make some pineapple chicken (a deepfried chinese dish) on my brand new wok (a nice one my father sent me). Since it was new, I didn't realize how it heated or anything, so while deepfrying, it produced a little smoke (not heavy smoke or anything). It set off the firealarm. No big deal, right?
Well... I live in an apartment complex attached to 7 other apartments. And all the firealarms are networked, and I dont' have the ability to turn them off... So, some of my neighbors were pretty pissed at me for the next 30 minutes (I even brought out fans to pull the smoke from the detectors, and opened all the windows).
I come into work today (I'm not even going to mention the traffic), and do the regular monday routine. Log in, check
I read Sluggy Freelance (if you haven't read it before, start at the beginning and work your way through. It is VERY funny, and well worth the time to catch up), then Penny Arcade (great for gamers), then Player vs. Player (another good gamer comic, but you don't have to be a gamer to relate to it). PVP hasn't been updated in like 4 days. And they have a really good series going on, and I'm wanting to read more about it, but no updates from a comic that updates daily? Anyone know whats going on there?
Oh, a bit of humor on Saturday...
My wife ran out and got me Shenmue (she bought it so she could buy babyclothes without me getting upset with her), and I started playing it. There's a part where you need to get info on a harbor, so you go asking people about sailors. You talk to friends, and don't want them to know you are avenging your father's death, so you have to be secretive about it. The conversation goes something like this:
"You know where I can find sailors?"
"Um, they are usually at bars at night. Why do you ask?"
I couldn't stop laughing after hearing that. I don't want to offend anyone, so if you don't get it, don't worry about it...
Ok... enough ranting... work to do...
