ZOMG the new patch has landed in WoW and the servers are still borked about 16 hours after they started.

On the plus side, I did actually get to log in on Yats for about five minutes before the borking was just too bad to handle. I guess it means no WoW for me until tomorrow.

The new loading screens and opening screen are sexy. I know, I got to see them eighty times waiting to try and get into my server. Boo for having a borked-up high-pop crazy people server, anyway.

In other news, I tried out doing bento in a single-tier box. Nothing fancy, just a Sterilite Lock-and-lock type box, 700 ml and microwave/freezer/dishwasher safe. It has steak stromboli in it since I was too lazy to cook and didn't quite know what the minimum charge was for delivery, so I ended up ordering pepperoni (dinner) and steak (lunch). I still have most of the steak one left, it might be dinner tomorrow unless I actually work up the motivation to make a big mess cooking tonkatsu like I've been meaning to do. I'm also trying to eat the concord grapes I got on a whim. They're really tasty but a bit weird to eat and I don't think I like the texture of them. They're pretty with the pomegranate scattered in there.

I also got a twitter. For all the stupid things that cross my mind that aren't really worth writing whole journal entries about. Don't look at it. It's full of whining about WoW and IJ being down the other day and just nonsense. Pure nonsense.

I have a couple books of Rumi's poetry now, the translations by Coleman Barks. I think I'm in love. I'm going to the American Visionary Arts Museum on Friday with Chellemi (it's a date. :D) and I'm hoping they still have some of his books in stock from last year's big exhibit. Because it's that worth it. This year's big exhibit is supposed to be sciencey, which means I will probably love it being a science geek and all. :D
