    Bet your ass I watched the whole video. Great song. Great band. Great video. Got to love the simplicity of the 80s.

    Funny story: I brought Billy Gibbons breakfast at the casino at about 7:30am and he was dressed in full concert regalia while he sat on the couch watching TV. Hat, chains, gauntlets, glasses, everything. Modern day me would have said, "Hey, man, do you ever take that shit off?" Nineteen year old me was just trying not to spill the coffee.

    So the plural of medium (a means or substance of doing something)

    Latin plural would be media, but then that now has a strong connotation of a form of mass communication.

    Medium has been anglicised, so mediums should be acceptable. But it also sounds more like multiple speakers for the dead.


    So which is your preference?

    I still parse media as it's usually used as multiple forms of mass communication, so I'd be fine with media as the plural.

    The beautiful interval between your bank account texting you you're out of funds

    And knowing you get paid in the morning

    I mean, is dinner really necessary?

    I thought not.

    That sucks.

    You remind me of me though. When I first arrived in Japan, due to some absolute bald-faced lies minor omissions by my new employer, I found that I had, well, not enough money by a long shot. For the first month I was here, I survived on:

    (100yen-~$1 USD)
    Breakfast: Cup noodle (100yen) one coffee cup of CC Lemon (a lemon soda soft drink with vitamin C. Keep reading, I was honestly concerned about scurvy.) 1.5L, 200yen (one week's worth).
    Lunch: One six-inch-ish garlic french bread loaf from the local bakery (157 yen), one can of strawberry milk from the vending machine (100 yen)
    Dinner: Water (included in rent)
    Snack(s): Water

    That was workdays. I had Wednesdays and Thursdays off at the time, and the local bar had half price drinks for foreigners on Wednesdays, so I would have three gin and tonics (250 yen each, 750 yen total) on Wednesday evenings. To ensure I didn't go over budget, and to maximize my bang for the buck, I didn't eat anything on Wednesdays though.

    Thursdays was protein day, I'd spend 500yen on a fried chicken bento.

    I didn't have access to a scale, but I lost 3-4 inches from my belt line in about 40 days, had to punch new holes when I ran out.

    Now I'm overly fat and unhappy about it.

    You will look back and laugh at this. It'll be a bitter, angry laugh, with a touch of incipient madness to it, but you'll laugh.

    This is why God created credit cards. He was in the midst of a pay dispute with his clients during the creation of the universe (why do you think he took a day off?), so he created a restaurant (probably a Cracker Barrel) to eat at, and a credit card to pay them. Eventually he got around to creating banks, currencies, interest, and economies in general, and then he took another day off and spent it down at the pub because damn, economics is hard and boring. All this, by the way, is told in detail in Genesis (unabridged version).

    Anyway, so much for advanced theology. Credit cards. Look into 'em.

    Two weeks into my stay here, I said "Fuck it, I'm going home," but at the time, Japanese travel agencies didn't accept (weird, I know, but...) credit cards, and I wasn't going to ask my family for a loan.

    So many tiny decision points in my life...

    I came home to the ranch yesterday evening and my parents took the family out to a nice dinner.

    I bought braised boneless short ribs.

    Then promptly consumed all the bread and my soup appetiser then took the main course to-go.

    I can make a meal of that meat for at least two days. ♥︎♥︎(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♥︎♥︎
