Up a bit late; sorted through some papers and putzed on the computer.
Leftover lo mein from How Lee for lunch. It’s even good microwaved!
Went to a talent show at Emily’s church. Notable acts included: a man performing dance moves “inspired by” Michael Jackson, while not emulating him; an 87-year-old woman playing old Duke Ellington tunes on the piano, accompanied by the dancing man on stand-up bass, and a recreation of this Monty Python sketch featuring a four-year-old as the shop owner.
Went out with Greg, Ted, and Sara to see Source Code. Really quite impressed with this film. A worthy successor to Moon.
Still fighting with driver performance. Moving buffers around did not have the desired effect. Running low on options and time, as customer has a looming factory deadline. Have to look at DMA settings and see if some improvements can be made there.
Home then out to dinner. Tried the new How Lee. It was much more crowded than I ever saw it in its previous incarnation, which might be explained by the transformation of the food from “random greasy Chinese-ish food” to “only sort of greasy Chinese food that maybe had some thought and effort behind it”. Also some may have been there to view the men’s room artwork.
Returned to the Squirrel Cage (a.k.a. Squirrel Hill Cafe, a.k.a. the bar I frequented throughout my early-to-mid-20s) for the first time in a few years. It’s one of the few bars that still allows smoking, which is why I’d been gone so long. It’s still smoky, but the beer selection is still solid. Unfortunately for it there are now moreoptions with equal or better selections and no smoke. Maybe I’ll try again in a few years.
