lisa was back at work in the office, and we went to the apollo grill for lunch. i got the kalbi ribs box lunch while lisa went with the sushi combo. we had a table by the front of the restaurant, my very first time, usually the waitress sits me in the back like she's ashamed of me or something. lisa and i talked about the state of programming jobs out on the market, the kind of work available for lingo and actionscript programmers.
the excitement back at the office was that carly's imac suddenly died, the machine just wouldn't boot up, despite the fact that the hard drive was fine after alex removed it and transplanted into another mac. we stripped the imac for parts (battery, memory) and installed them into a biege G3 for carly to use temporarily until we can get her a new computer.
i left work around 7pm and came home, digging through recipe books looking for something to make, perhaps not for tonight, but definitely for tomorrow. after i selected the recipe (burrito with rice and chicken), i headed out to star market to buy the ingredients, picking up a chicken pot pie for tonight's dinner. brings back memories, growing up, i ate out of a toaster oven, chicken pot pies, tater tots, tv dinners, stoffer pizzas. as a matter of fact, it was through these instant prefabricated meals that i was first introduced to american style food. that, and school lunches.
