My First McDonald's Apple Pie!

Tomorrow -- Saturday, June 27th -- I plan to try my first McDonald's apple pie.  I have never eaten one, and I have been told they are amazing.  So, in a few hours I shall embark on a grand culinary adventure into the world of fast food desserts.

Hamburger Haven!

I have been wanting to go to Hamburger Haven -- a diner in San Francisco -- for, oh, about seven years now, and now I think the time has come. I shall go, and try out yon hamburgers!

My girlfriend and I had a great dinner tonight, at a restaurant called "B-Star."  It is an offshoot of Burma Superstar, the oh-so-famous San Francisco Burmese restaurant on Clement St.  Hooray for Chinese meatball jook!

Picking Plums

Yesterday, I picked plums at my girlfriend's former boss's house. I love plums. I love picking them. I love eating them. I could eat them all day long.

That is my story.

Curry Buns and a New Assignment

I have decided that happiness is buying a single curry bun from the local Chinese bakery, and eating it slowly as I walk back to my apartment.  I also enjoy walking into that particular bakery and seeing groups of Chinese men huddled around two people playing a game that I think is Xiangqi.  I always feel very much out of place in that bakery, but the lady behind the counter always smiles when she sees me, so I don't feel too bad.  I ask for a bun, hand her eighty cents, and off I go.

Also, I just got a new freelance assignment!  It's a little different from my past ones, but it should be fun to write.  

And, my girlfriend has recently introduced me to the show Gilmore Girls.  I have to admit that I like it.

The Pleasure of Listening to Music

I just realized that I have not laid on my bed and listened to an album all the way through since, oh, high school. I think I would like to do so again. There are some blues albums I wouldn't mind listening to, and there is one Gypsy music album that has been intriguing me for a while. So, back to music!
