i did nothing of any worth today, my lethargy exacerbated by raging back pains due to sleeping on it wrong (pillows too high? bed too soft?), the sort of discomfort that left me sort of hunched over and unable to turn my neck. my body is just falling apart! i took an aleve but it didn't seem to do anything (i'm more of an ibuprofen guy anyway). i tried calling calisha a few times at megabus lost & found to get more details about returning my phone but every time i got the answering machine. i watched the live broadcast of the comet landing on streaming CNN via a verizon cable app. i fixed lunch (english muffin + egg + finlandia swiss cheese + smoked ham) and watched old episodes of cheers
on my HDTV via the netflix app.
i left the house in the afternoon to go across the street to buy some salty snacks because i had a craving. i napped for about an hour around 5:00, woke up at 7:00 and started preparing dinner. i boiled my leftover rotisserie chicken to make some stock and used it for my rice noodle. i had a voice chat with wangyan who found a new job in chongqing (after only leaving our old company for a bit over a month) and wanted my help to draft her acceptance e-mail. out of the blue she asked me about my special relationship with sunmeng, and i was able to help her clarify what happened the last week before i left china.
