i heated up some canned gumbo for lunch, ate it while watching the gilmore girls. i cut up all my pomegranates to make a giant bowl of seeds, eating them by the handful. i've come to realize that i like the way pomegranates look but i'm not particular fond of eating them: sometimes they can be a bit tart (kind of like cranberries) and they're also a bit seedy. i cleaned my miniature fish tank of green algae forming on the walls using a water paper towel. the bits of algae i scraped off were readily consumed by the fish. the tank is getting boring but they're a low maintenance pet: i just feed them a few flakes in the mornings, and i never change the water,
the rest of the day i watched a bunch of dvd's: amores perros, 21 grams, and the day after tomorrow, all three movies i haven't seen before. i was flat on the couch so long my back is starting to hurt again. amores perros and 21 grams were both directed by alejandro gonzález iñárritu. the amores perros dvd (which i borrowed from dan) is cool because there's a special feature explaining how they simulated all the dogfights, which will allow me to sleep tonight since originally i thought they were real. i'm proud to say that 18 minutes into 21 grams i had already figured out the gist of the plot. the day after tomorrow features some nice cgi scenes of global destruction, although it's definitely a formula film. for dinner it was more ramen, korean kimchee flavor this time.
