    Feeling Wicked

    Some how in some sick and twisted way I found tickets on craigslist for the Thursday showing of Wicked for just about face value. Earlier this week on a whim Joy and I were on ticketmaster looking for tickets, but alas there were none to be found.  I had no idea that the show has been sold out for months now, and the only available tickets left were the really expensive variety.  The seats weren’t absolutely the best, but the theatre is pretty small so you’ll always have a decent view.  The show made up for it by far.  I had some idea what the story line was, but it…

    Working on those hugging muscles

    Jonathan has had his Bally’s membership for over a year and a half now, and has only gone twice, so we started our spartan training this evening. Looks like i’m going to be joining bally’s since it’ll be half the cost of what i’m paying now for 24 hour fitness, which i’ve basically stopped going to. In six month i might reach my goal of benching my own weight which is thankfully pretty low. Its good to know that i’ve been getting stronger without actually having doing anything specific, because I actually benched a whole 95lbs, which is the most i’ve ever done, and please don’t laugh its a first.…

    The science of Zzz …

    Dream recap: The only part that i could remember was basically running with a bunch of friends, and it turns out that we’re in some sort of race. We all run past the finish line and everyone is celebrating. Thats most of what i can remember from it. I checked out dreammoods.com to look up what running may mean and this is what it said. To dream that you are running away from someone, indicates an issue that you are trying to avoid. You are not taking or accepting responsibility for your actions. In particular, if you are running from an attacker or any danger, then it suggests that you…

    Slow it down

      Life is grand, and sometimes i just wish that i could at least slow down time. Last year my life was so focused on work, and it was good. It was something that i needed to do. It was well worth it because the business would not be where it is now if i didn’t dedicate my life to it. Even after those countless nights being in the office till 10, 11, 12, 1, 2, even 3 in the morning, and getting countless instant messages from friends and family to go home, i knew what i had to do. This weekend marks a year for moving out to LA,…

    Making it last

    I can vivdly recall this one time back in jr. high, i was given this mini milkyway candy bar, not just the halloween size one, but the tiny square one. I just want to savor it for as long as i could, so i didn’t just pop it in my mouth and finish it off, but rather I would take small bites out of it so that it would last me a little bit longer. I also read that if you can delay a good event for the right amount of time, you basically get to enjoy the moment twice. Their example was like if you gave someone a gift…

    A Happy Liver

    After many weeks, maybe months, ok years of abuse of our livers, we have implemented a mandatory eight glasses of water at work. I’m sure my liver, kidney, and every other alcoholic sponge in my body is thanking me, but now my bladder is taking a beating. Seriously how do you expect me to get any work done if i have to constantly have to go to the bathroom every 15 minutes? The only next logical step is to build a urinal underneath the desks so we don’t have to get up so many times. Its the love hate relationship i give my poor liver,… here’s some water, are you…

    Skinny is so Passé

    300 was a great movie, and now i understand how a 9:55pm showing in culver city could be so close to selling out.  I’m so ready to hit the gym and just start pounding the weights till i get my greek body.  Hoping not to sound too gay, but even i was amazed at how ripped all the guys were.  The story was really good, and the imagery was crazy good.  There were some female boob action going on too which always is a plus. The movie concluded a very good weekend, so good that i couldn’t fall asleep last night, and now im paying the price of it.  The…

    AOC AOK

    As everyone else in this city was dressed all out in their green clovers, and cramming into the local irish pub, I instead went to AOC out near the Farmer’s Market/Grove. Joy was kind of enough to accompany me for some fine food, and fine wine. The menu of food and wine were quite impressive and i had no idea what i was reading. We had a lot of help from our very nice waitress who picked a delicious fruity chardonnay for us to drink, and a really firm goat cheese to start with (she wasn’t kidding when she said it was firm). For our meal, i went a little…

    Zen was it

    Bill Bufford of Heat said in his book, that while making pasta, a thousand times over that he was able to do it without thinking. His mind was allowed to wander, to think about other things in life, he found the idea of Zen, or it was just he was really bored. I’ve recently happened upon this feeling while playing Guitar Hero 2 here at work. In the beginning I had the most difficult time controlling my fingers individually, and made mistake after mistake. Then when i let go of the mind and just started to play i was able to play some songs to point where i was almost…

    Happy Pi Day

    March 14 … 3.14 … Pi Day! The mathematical constant thats irrational. The never ending digit. Back in high school our math teachers would actually bring in pies to eat on this day, but for some reason i never got any. I guess it was because i was never really good at math, so i never really got along with my math teachers. Yeah thats right, im asian and not good at math, don’t ask me. I’m more of language kind of person, maybe not the english language, or spanish for that matter, but i do understand computer language! I know, i’m still a nerd at heart.

    The 49ers will be traveling to Columbus, Ohio for its first round game in the 2007 NCAA Championships. Long Beach State is the No. 12 seed and will take on the No. 5 seed, the University of Tennessee. The 49ers and Vols will play the second game of the day, slated to tip off at approximately 2:45 pm (EST). I never did make it to a game while i attended but then again they never had a chance of making the tournament while i was there either. I think im going to rock my CSULB sweater until they lose. Good job guys, here looking to wearing my sweater pass this…
