not much happened the rest of the day. it was still windy out with intermittent rain, so i stayed indoors. as i was bored, i couldn't stop snacking, and everything i went to go use the bathroom and check myself on the scale i could see my weight increasing. maybe my scale is inaccurate but i must've put on 4 lbs. today, from morning to night.
i looked up various online photo book printing services: shutterfly, blurb, and snapfish. shutterfly had the most templates, but blurb had the best user interface (both web-based app and standalone app - with the standalone possibly supporting foreign language fonts). snapfish was also good and probably the cheapest of the bunch, with an easy-to-use web-based app as well. my mother wants to print out a photo book of her snapshots from the taiwan trip she took back in march. while researching for her, it dawned on me that it'd be cool if i did one for myself of my western sichuan trip back in august. i've never printed a photo book before so it'd be an interesting experience.
for dinner i boiled some chicken tortellini and mixed it with a simple from-the-jar tomato sauce combined with some steamed spinach. i ate while watching some thursday night football, drinking a bottle of old fashion root beer, old red eye brand. it tasted a little bit like our local moxie soda, but still nothing like the complexity of IBC root beer, which is the standard for root beer aficionados. all that pasta (and was there cheese?) made me a little gassy afterwards but that's where living single has its advantages.
