Broke my usual habit of going to Vera’s this evening to stop in at The Bad Waitress. I like it here. Good, cheap food. Jukebox. dimly lit. Free wireless. No-nonsense staff, who, despite the name, are actually pretty cool. I stole the image off their website. Nobody sue me, please.
There are young, just-turned 21 MCAD students surrounding me – sensibly sipping on wine and beer. Ironic – they’re Kurt Cobain lookalike art students who don consignment shop wares and they look surprisingly like 80s yuppies right outta St. Elmo’s Fire. They’re just missing the cigarettes.
Had a killer headache at work today and went home planning to go to bed. Of course that didn’t happen. The new laptop sucked me in – begging me to play with it. That and I whiped my old machine and finally let curiosity get the better of me – installed Ubuntu. We’ll see how that goes. So far it’s cool because it’s new, but I’m not sure that it’s really practical for me to stick with it.
My tuna melt just arrived.
