Packrat

Driving & stuff.

I had to drive all the way to Rancho Cucamonga today to do tool inventory for the company I work for. That's 179 miles round-trip.

I got to wonder around the under-construction Nong Shim noodle plant. They've got some rather facinating looking machinery there. I didn't get any free samples though.

After finishing my work there I went to the nearby Ontario Mills mall and walked around for a bit. Bought some blueberry tea and found some apple Altoids gum at Cost Plus. I ventured into the Virgin store, and found a copy of The Greatest American Hero on DVD, but got pissed off at the store because they were playing this HORRIBLE noise. It wasn't music, it sounded like a broken stereo system. Bleah. Cost them a sale.

I thought about stopping at Tom's Farm on the way home, but the place was way too crowded.

I stopped at Carl's Jr for lunch. They've got something new called Texas Toothpicks: onions & jalapenos fried up like onion rings. Spicy and tasty!

I got home and collapsed in bed for 2-1/2 hours. A least my back seems to have stopped hurting so bad.
Grrr

Invasion of the Giant Mosquitos!

I've been seeing these HUGE bugs gathering around the front porch light lately. They're about 2 inches long and look like giant mosquitos. Scary to say the least.

I found out today they're actually the harmless crane fly. They don't bite or sting or suck blood or anything. They just look creepy, like a daddy long legs.
