Oh, and more day-highlights:

There was more to today than giving props to Aquaman. Today I:

* Got to work early and left early; arriving early to beat potential sticky snow (which didn't stick) and leaving early to run errands;

* Bought my monthly bus-and-light rail pass;

* Explored the construction zone that is the downtown Transit Mall;

* Walked and bussed up to the Stadium Fred Meyer to browse;

* Walked all the way from that Freddy's to the El Grillo restaurant 13 blocks away, for two fish tacos, one spiced pork taco, and a thing o' beans;

* Resisted the urge to hold up my middle finger in the direction of the former Vesta call center a block away from El Grillo;

* And walked down most of the Emergency Backup Transit Mall (SW 3rd) until my bus caught up with me.

Now it's relaxin' time. I'm gonna take a shower. And I think I'm likely to sleep well tonight...

As you can see, finally I got motivated!

I also have a couple of ideas I'll request later, as I'd like help from friends with stronger icon-fu than I have...

Oh, bad Spanish makes me laugh.

To quote The Rutles,
Nasty supposedly sings "I buried Stig" on I Am The Waitress. In fact he sings "E burres stigano" which is very bad Spanish for "Have you a water buffalo?"

Oh, God, you two, do not get me started.

*sings*
One man's civilization
Is another man's jungle, yeah
They say revolution's in the air
I'm dancing in my underwear
'Cuz I don't care
Hey, diddle, diddle
The cat and the fiddle
Piggy in the middle
Doo-wop-a-poo, doo-wop-a-poo....

(First: Psst! Psst! There's an actual icon next to my name! Woo hoo! OK, "woo hoo" sounds weird when whispered...)

You'd probably like El Grillo, too: good honest food in a hole-in-the-wall place that's connected to Mary's Club, one of Portland's iconic strip clubs. El Grillo's near my former call center (you can see our old building from it) and I ate there a lot when I worked there.
