China Town

I am basically eating at china town once a week now – and it is good. I have been focusing on either the Tofu special or vegetable mushu. the tofu special is in a brown sauce and is way to much to eat for one person. the mushu is absolutley the best in orange county – perfect amount of plum sauce and everything. it is supper good.

New Pope

Jack wrote a letter to the pope yesterday. He asked him which hand he used, what his favorite star wars character is, and which is his favorite star wars movie (and which one he likes even more then that!).

Sin City

I saw this based on Louis’s recommendation – that and the fact that I almost always like comic book movies. The dialog ruled, the feel of the film was awesome, but the violence really disturbed me – something that does not happen in movies that often these days.

Some of the mad cap crazy stuff was good, but the brutally realistic stuff struck me as just way to much.

Angels vs Mariners

Jack, Kate and I went to the Angels game yesterday & it ruled. The Angels lost, but it did not matter since we did not see much of the game – we did have icee’s, corn on the cob, popcorn, cracker jacks, bought rally monkeys & t-shirts and just had a great time.

We even got miracle tickets.

Jack did the run as fast as Erstad game & I got some great photos. Kate was fairly sick (I remember how sick Jack was at the Sox game last year), but really seemed to have a good time – she was very sad to leave…

I hope that we can go to more of these in the future…

weight of water

The fact that the pressure of water is exactly proportional to its height has always struck me as very very odd. And I am not sure why – I mean it makes exact sense, but still seems counter intuitive when one thinks of dams, surf, and other large bodies of water. The sheer volume of water must have some impact on the pressure, weight, whatever that the water threatens us.

Perhaps that is the point, a ten meter pillar of water is not threatening – it is biblical, or poetic, or somehow magical. A ten meter wall of water is a real threat – it is scary to even think about that much water – and I do not mean only that much water moving. Just the existance of a 10 meter wall of water or being beneath ten meters of water is horrible.

Horror always seems to outweigh common sense – or even science.

Grateful Dead – "Days Between"

There were days
There were days
There were days I know
When all we ever wanted
Was to learn and love and grow
Once we grew into our shoes
We told them where to go
Walked halfway around the world
On promise of the glow
Stood upon a mountain top
Walked barefoot in the snow
We gave the best we had to give
How much we’ll never know, never know
