Why I don't eat beef anymore:

Beef Recall at San Jose Grocery Store

In the article they mention 6 other restaurants in the Santa Clara area which also purchased beef from the same source. So no beef for me... at least not for a while.

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.
The Road goes ever on and on
Out from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
Let others follow it who can!
Let them a journey new begin,
But I at last with weary feet
Will turn towards the lighted inn,
My evening-rest and sleep to meet.
-J.R.R Tolkien

Today is J.R.R Tolkien's Eleventy-Second birthday... and I thought the passage seemed appropriate for this particular day for one particular person in my life.

Good luck on your classes this term and have a safe journey, Cat!

When I left my house in San Jose this morning, I could see the blue sky, and rays of sunshine layered the land. Shortly after I got onto the highway and began driving northbound towards work, sheets of rain begain pouring down. Just outside my office was when it seemed at it's worst, although as I write this, the rain is gone for the moment, and there is a very slight chance I will see the sun again today.

Yesterday after going to the gym, I came back sore and exhausted. I started working on the chest and the arms. My arms felt so tight and taut afterwards I almost couldn't drive home due to the pain. After going home, I fell asleep pretty quickly after that, much to my surprise.

With the exception of a few things, I'm generally pretty happy on my outlook of life. I was blessed to be raised in a good family with good values on how to live life. I have a lot going for me, and at times, I think that I don't appreciate the moments I live enough until the moment is past.

After my graduation at times my parents did put a little pressure on me to get married before I turned 30, over the recent years they've relaxed on that (which I am thankful for), in part because they know that I'm not going to marry someone that I've only known for a short time. I think having older cousins who are still single in their 30s helps too.

My first task of the New Year is, ironically enough, in cleaning up my past life. Over the years that I've lived in the Bay Area, I've kept everything, and thrown very little out -- receipts, past papers I wrote, old magazines, heck, I know I've probably got a box of newspapers somewhere. The useless stuff gets thrown out, and I've cleared out some of the clutter in my life. This will be one heck of a project but it's something that absolutely must be done. My apartment at present seems even more cluttered than when I first moved in, but that's because organization takes up space.

You're chocolate. You're the old soul type, people
feel that they have known you their entire
life. Many often open up to you for they view
you as thoughtful and trustworthy. Although
people trust you, you have a hard time trusting
them. You prefer to keep your feelings bottled
up inside, or display them very quietly. It is
alright to open up every once in a while.

It's been raining pretty heavily this entire morning. Even though I like the sound of rain, having the rain outside, being in this cold apartment of mine, it's still kind of gray and gloomy. I know that L.A. is pretty gray, but not raining by watching the Rose Parade.

My sister is watching the Rose Parade on my TV, while I do all the little chores I need to do around the house. In L.A., the Rose Parade is such a big thing, they broadcast it so many times. I remember a few years ago, when I stayed here for New Year's for the first time ever, I was surprised when I found out they didn't broadcast it on every major network channel the entire day, but rather once live, one rerun later in the day, and *maybe* a rerun in the evening.

Happy New Year!

It's 2004 now and I wonder how long it'll be before I remember to write that on my checks. (Yes even in this day and age, checks are unavoidable).

I tried to blog at midnight, but it ate my post. I wonder if that phenomena is anything like when 2000 came around everyone picking up their phones to check if they still worked (which for a week before they told everyone not to do because it could lead to a collapse of the phone system).

Hope everyone has a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
