September 9, 2008: Yummy Squid Puffs

73 Days to Baby Day! (29 Weeks and Four Days Pregnant)

It is better to make bad decisions too early than to make good decisions too late.

Seriously overcast in the New York Metro today.  Very dark clouds – no sunlight whatsoever.  Nice change.  My eyes have missed the clouds.

I worked from home for a little while this morning.  Right when I would have started walking to the office it turned into a massive downpour and there was no way that I was walking out in that.  So I did some work at home until it lightened up a little bit and then headed in.  It was still raining for the first half of my walk but it wasn’t bad at all.

I opened the windows today as it is so much cooler than it has been and we are desperate for some fresh air in here.

I ate lunch in Penn Station on my way into the office.  I figured that I would kill two birds with one stone and save myself some time this afternoon, and it isn’t often that I can manage to get Triponi Pizza.

Work was pretty much normal today.  Nothing worth mentioning.  I am not traveling in to Warren tomorrow, just as a reminder to those who follow my schedule closely.

We had coffee, soup and salad at Financier this afternoon.  I am in there for coffee at least once or twice a week if not more.

This afternoon I got a chance to try a Korean snack food that is roughly like a Captain Crunch cereal ball except many times larger – almost half the size of a golf ball – but instead of being a peanut butter flavoured puff it is flavoured with squid and shrimp and the center contained a hazelnut!  This is some seriously crazy snack food.  It was actually rather tasty.  No one else in the office was too thrilled about them.  Not the next snack food craze on Wall Street, I guess.

There was no rain for the walk home.  It is still a little warm and humid for my taste but the weather is quite an improvement.  I got home and discovered Dominica and Oreo already napping.  Dominica was really worn out today.

We decided to skip a real dinner.  Min just mad some risotto and mac’n’cheese that we had around the house and we both had just a little bit and called that dinner.  Then she watched an episode of Frasier and called it a night around nine thirty.

I spend the evening building Solaris 10 on VMWare.

  1. If you’re gonna mention my puffs, you gotta mention my name…it’s a package deal. Something like “Dan, one of the hardest working individuals at my workplace has introduced me to such a wonderful snack. It makes me so happy when I taste the squid flavored rice goodness on my palette!”
