Friday – I walk off the boat and onto the bus and had a different driver. You get used to the driver you have everyday. I never knew his name but I always thought it was funny you would ask him about restaurants and he would rave and rave about the General Tso’s chicken at the Golden Lion. So I figured eh word of mouth advertising I would go check it out. So I got a togo order of the stuff. My review was it wasn’t as spicy as the other General Tso’s out there. But the portion was healthy and the bell peppers added a bit of value to the experience. Shortly after that my buddy called me and invited me out to the Casino Cedar Steakhouse for Steak Dinner. I had a Filet Mignon that I must say the taste and the way you felt eating it was almost better then sex. Probably cheaper considering you are buying a $50 dinner for yourself. I guess that is one joy of being single. But when you have 6 guys at the table all eating amazing cuts of beef you feel a bit wrong having that feeling pass through you. But it seems like most women I cross paths with are either vegetarians or vegans or just don’t like steak. I always ponder what is wrong with that person. If I could see a girl eat a 24oz porterhouse and enjoy a dark beer I think I would die of shock right there or be totally turned on. Man that seems wrong after I typed that. After that everyone wanted to gamble. I am not a gambling guy. But I had $25 in my pocket and after watching Blackjack for a while there seemed to be a system to the cards once you found out how many decks were available and how many people were playing and how many cards people were drawing you could play the odds of what was left to be drawn. So it was a giant math problem. I later found out it was illegal to figure that out. Which had me wondering WTF? But I took $25 and turned it into $50 and was happy with that outcome.
Saturday! – Well I really had no plans for this day at all. Chris sent me an IM asking what we were doing and I was like how about we just go putz around Seattle. So he came over and we walked on the ferry and went to Gameworks. Now this is an interesting place it’s an Arcade and I hadn’t really been in there since it first opened forever ago. So walk in and get my game play card and me and Chris came to the quick thought that we were probably the oldest people in there surrounded by kids. I must say that you feel a bit odd because I am sure parents are probably looking at us like “What are these guys doing here?” but we paid $25 and we played for like 5hrs. Some girl was supposed to come meet us there. But she didn’t show up. Because she didn’t have enough coin. Wants to hang out this weekend. I am not really sure I am so keen on that idea. I am just not interested anymore after I put it off for two weeks and she backed off for one. I really have no interest anymore.
So after some gaming action we went down to Pike Place Market and had some Johnny Rockets. This is like old school diner meets In&Out but with a larger selection of food. I would give anything to have an In&Out Burger around my location. The Double Double with Grilled Onions. If In&Out only served beer it would be the perfect place to eat. Then we walked down to the ferry. Stopped at Starbucks. I must say if you have never been to Seattle we don’t have Starbucks on every corner. But we have mobile espresso stands, Seattle’s Best Coffee, Tully’s, Starbucks and other selections of coffee houses everywhere. So you can’t walk more then a block and a half without being around a place to get your coffee fix.
So we got back to the living side of the water and went to check out Best Buy. I am 1/2 tempted to buy the Nintendo Wii game Red Steel. I haven’t played it but it looks good and it got a ok review. I can’t really make up my mind on that one. I figure I will just wait until the drop the price down from $50. Though I must say Wario Ware is insane look like an idiot and laugh at your friends fun. So I went to Hollywood video and picked up 3 movies for $25 I picked up Jackass 2, Little Miss Sunshine and 16 blocks. I have yet to see Little Miss Sunshine. But Junniper seems to enjoy it and it’s either a love or hate movie. I am an odd guy so I think it will fit in my loving it category. The Departed comes out tomorrow which will be sweet. I recently picked up Seasons 5-8 of Red Dwarf the BBC show. I love this show a human being that was frozen in time for 3 million years away from earth stuck on board with an anal hologram. A humanoid that evolved from the ships cat and a computer that has an IQ of 6000. The human lister is basically a scummy slimeball and there is something about British Comedy I love. Most people have never heard of the show in the states. You can catch it on PBS on occasion but eh. They are not making it anymore with the last season airing in 1999. There has been a movie in the works forever and a Season 9 coming after that. But the actors are getting up there in age. Not sure how that will pan out or even if it will pan out.
But back on track I was cleaning out my car in the parking lot while Chris was having a smoke and I found a 12pack of cherry coke in the turnk of my car along with a 4U Server. So I stuck my hand in the Cherry Coke box and found one can left so I was like sweet. So grabbed all the DVD’s out my trunk and tossed them in the car. Started the car and popped the top on the coke. Was driving home and was drinking the coke. Then all of a sudden I felt a chunk of something on my teeth so Chris is playing with my iPod and I scrape out this item and get it on my finger. I flip on the map light and it is a biological chunk of something. It is slightly brown and had some black speckles in it. I was like umm WTF so I showed it to Chris and he just started laughing so I tossed the thing out the window.
I was feeling all gross and disgusted and Chris is just laughing so hard he is crying. Like I was so bothered I was either on the edge of puking or thinking I would never drink soda again. The can wasn’t that old maybe 2 weeks. I was just driving home in complete disgust and Chris laughed for about 5 miles. I am sure he will have his version of the story up here soon. But man I went to Coca Cola’s website and tried to find a contact form page. But the one I did find was one way communication. There corporate page had a contact form but they didn’t have any topics regarding what my issue was. I want to complain to someone but not sure how or where. I can’t blame the grocery store. But it’s just like I want to make this known to Coca Cola. Pepsi has never freaked me out like this. But man was I bothered.
Sunday – Well I woke up and posted a blog about trying to figure out what was wrong. Junniper came to my rescue and I spent the rest of the day lounging around. I should I have went to get a haircut but I just wanted to sit around and do nothing. It was just a chill day and it was great.
