You know what I just realized? I stayed in Nor Cal for half my life. I spent half my life in Nor Cal. That’s a lot of time! Yea, I’m really bored. I think I should really get some snacks in the house for once. Or maybe I can eat some cereal. Anyways, writing at 1:45 in the morning is really non-productive, especially if I’m hungry, too. Man, I wish there was a bowl of soup right now. Oh yeah, some jerk honked at me today, presumably because I was in a lane where you can go straight OR right turn and the right turn-signal was green but it was also a red light. I was this close to losing it, and I was going to punch his engine hood, but I somehow managed to hold back, which is good. Because I also had milk in my backpack, which was slowly spoiling. Also, since I dropped the backpack on the ground, the milk squirted out a little bit. Had to empty my backpack. Then, I went to do some other shopping (don’t ask me why I didn’t drive to begin with), and it took me 17 minutes to drive one mile :-O. Wow, this was going to be about how I spent half my life in Nor Cal but turned out to be how I liked living in LA so far. Anyways, half my life is a lot of time to be living in one place. I don’t think I’ll miss it, though.

Went to the graduate student orientation last Friday. It was alright. I thought they didn’t have enough time for us to do everything. They should cut down on the things we can do so that we’d have time. Like, they schedule 5 events in the same time slot. I mean, choices are good, but too many is sometimes bad. Anyways, that’s my thought.

Lehman Files for Bankruptcy; Merrill Is Sold –

Lehman Files for Bankruptcy; Merrill Is Sold –

I guess times are tough on everybody. But it seems like it’s only a big deal when rich people get laid off. I mean, you never hear news about steel plants in Pittsburgh being shutdown.

Righteous Kill and Elegy

My Dad and I went to watch Righteous Kill today. I thought it would be better than it was. It was still pretty good, but I did not guess the ending at all. I guess I should have seen it coming from a mile away, but didn’t. As for the actors’ performance, there’s really nothing you can say. I mean, it’s Al Pacino and Robert De Niro! I think we’re never going to see them together again in a picture. I just think something was lacking, though, like the script or the director somehow failed to support the big stars. Maybe I need to watch it again.

Although we went to watch A.M. Cinema ($6), we still had to be cheap and watch another film. I was thinking of Burn After Reading since that was one of the few films that fit the 2-film schedule that we haven’t seen (we already watched Bangkok Dangerous and Death Race last week). But then Dad suggested Elegy and I went on imdb to check. Since it seemed good, we went to watch that. Since Penélope Cruz was in the movie and I need to practice my Spanish, I think I would give the review in Spanish.

Pienso que la película es okay. Es bueno, pero no era tan bueno como otra películas artísticos. Cuando yo vi la conclusión, aún tengo unas questiones. Por ejemplo, ¿cómo George murió? Me siento que puedo hablar sobre los detalles de la película porqué nadie que yo conozco verá la película. Pero la actriz era muy bonita. No pienso que he visto una película con ella. O, pienso que he visto Vanilla Sky, pero esta película es mejor de esta. No pienso que esta película puede haga el dinero, pero quizá conseguir unas concesiones.

También, ¿por qué la estructura del estacionamiento de Westfield Century City no tiene números en la pared? Tiene millones dólares para la sistema que notificar los espacios vacíos pero no tiene dólares por pintar los números en la pared. ¿Por qué es una problema? Porqué no podríamos buscando el coche después de la película. Si no sé qué es la sistema que notificar los espacios vacíos, es una sistema cuando un coche parquear en un espácio, tiene luz en tapa que cambio de verde a rojo. No sé qué ésos gentes pensado.

‘Total destruction’: At least 15 die in head-on Metrolink crash – Los Angeles Times

‘Total destruction’: At least 15 die in head-on Metrolink crash – Los Angeles Times

As if Hurricane Ike is not enough, now we have this. I spent most of today watching news on this after it occurred. It’s horrible, really, there’s no other words to describe this. I mean, this kind of thing never happens. A head-on collision on the Metrolink? Would have never thought it. It’s too bad really, this is going to give a bad name to rail, which is really my favorite form of transport. Well, I hope the death toll doesn’t rise anymore.

Be safe, everyone.
