Where am I?

April 1, 2015

I don’t really write online anymore. There is simply just too many things to do. But when I do, I have to decide where I’m going to write. I began blogging a number of years ago at Xanga. I was wrote so much that I decided to break down and purchase the “Xanga For Life” for one-hundred big ones. It didn’t seem like a big deal back then, but I did pay for the site so if I ever write I’ll write there. You can find me at ONIGIRIMAN.

But I could always change my mind. We will see…

Ping.fm is pretty convenient… for now. We’ll see how this works.

4th of July

July 4, 2009

Happy Fourth of July!

I was supposed to go to the National Mall with Musubichan to watch Barry Manilow and Aretha Franklin, but she changed our plans–I should feel lucky, actually. Instead we are having her friends over for a BBQ. While it means more work, it also means less walking around the Mall, which can be quite strenuous.And, of course, less Mandy, too.

Eating Disorder

June 30, 2009

Wow, I haven’t been here in about three months. This is not a good thing as this is THE place where I keep up my writing skills, meager as they are…

Anyway, I’ve come to realize that I must have an eating disorder with regard to timing. Last night at dinner, I was eating some stir-fried that Musubichan cooked up. It was good and I was hungry, so I was eating rather vigorously. I am pretty dexterous with chopsticks and can convey food to my mouth rather quickly, but it seems I have a timing issue these days. At one point, I failed to pull out the chopsticks from my mouth quick enough and ended up biting into its tip, cracking not only my favorite pair of chopsticks, but also a small portion of my front tooth (right incisor).

How stupid of me. I should relax while I eat and concentrate on taking the chopsticks out of my mouth before I start chewing. But concentrating on the mechanics of eating would distract me from the pleasure of eating, and that would make meals uninteresting. Of course, the upside would be that I might eat less and lose weight, and save myself the agony of going to the dentist to repair my teeth, let alone losing my favorite set of chopsticks.

Hope everyone in Xangaland is well and healthy this summer.

Random Thoughts

I am still adjusting to tweeting on Twitter. Most seem to write about their everyday life–I going to lunch, I worked out today, I’m meeting a friend for drinks tonight. I started to do something similar, but I am unsure if other people want to know or even care about the minutiae of my everyday life. So instead I’ve been tweeting things that don’t necessarily deal with specific activities of my everyday life, but express more about what I’m thinking or feeling.

In the past few days, this is what I’ve written (some editing was involved):

  • Anyone know what is “pi day”? Is it about “pies” or the ratio between a circle’s circumference and its diameter?
  • Onigiriman is really digging the original UK version of Life on Mars, although the slang is sometimes a pain in the jacksie.
  • Onigiriman needs a bolt of energy to get his butt moving forward, but a ponderous, cloudy DC Sunday is not helping.
  • Onigiriman wants to know: What is OpenDNS? Can someone explain this to me?

Can anyone answe some of these questions? I’m not getting much of a response from these tweets, but then what can you say in 140 characters or less?

Happy Spring

March 10, 2009

My thoughts for today:

  • Dear Mr. President. Hah! So there! UCLA 65, VCU 64… okay, so it was close…
  • I am even more livid with AIG and the economic crisis after reading an article on Rolling Stone Magazine that outlines how it started, how we got here, what the mind set of Wall Street is, and ultimately how screwed we all are. Must read The Big Takeover.
  • Today is the Vernal Equinox–actually it was 7:44 this morning. Happy First Day of Spring everyone! Well, as happy as one can be given our current situation.
