LiveJournal auto-post

Saturday I went to the The San Francisco Photography Meetup meeting. This was actually very interesting, and there was nothing super scary I didn’t know about hiding in there. THankfully, angioma resection is easy, since they have a clear outline, an the damage done in the surgery was jut taking out all the crap that had already damaged by brain and cause a bunch of scar tissue to dorm. Therefore, I work jsut as good as Ti Couz in SF. They have a nice and varied menu, so just about anyone can find something. And their fresh squeezed orange and carrot juice combo is delicious.

Sakae – A sushi bar. I ignored this place for a long time, because it was a dive. Boy was I wrong. My favorite sushi place, evar. Oh, it’s not at all cheap, but it is close. They sold me my Macbook Pro, which I love. And some speakers that look… well… interesting. And a bluetooth keyboard. A+!

Burlingame Radioshack – Closest place to get something to eat, a funny thing happened. A young mother, pushing a stroller, was walking behind me, chatting on her cell phone. SHe was telling whoeve she was speaking to about her kid’s milestones:

“He got his first tooth in”
“Yesterday he ate his first solid food’
“Oh! And he had his first little boner. At least the first one I saw. I was changing his diaper and I was a bit saddened that it didn’t come with rice, as the menu seemed to imply. However, it came with some excellent hummus, slightly salty but tasty baba ghanoush, and a large bag of rice. Oh, meat is on sale one week:

<todd> Safeway has tri-tip for $3.49/lb this week, with a coupon for $5 off a minimum purchase of $20. That’s almost 6lbs of beef for $15.

Suddently your dinners get a lot more interesting. You can also buy the 18count package of eggs when they are on sale for really cheap:

<dpk2> yeah, safeway online has 60 eggs for $7.49. thatsalotta eggs.

Yes, I just would have spent over a weeks worth of food dollars. But I have protein to last me ALL MONTH. I also notice that sweetcorn is on sale, 10 ears for 2 bucks. You can freeze corn. This might even be cheaper than buying a bag of frozen niblets. Etc, I’m sure I can find lots more examples.

Here’s my point- living on $21 for food a week would suck. However, it’s not quite as dire as the politicians are making it out to be, for anyone with half a brain. It would be dull, and repetitive, but not necessarily completely devoid of nutrition.
