I'm hooked on shawarmas lately. Mostly the chicken ones. There are all kinds of names for them - Greek people call them souflakis/souvlakis, Middle Eastern places call them chicken donairs - either way, I could eat them every day. Now I'm hungry. And I just had 4 slices of toast but I could eat some still.

I biked 22 kms today - maybe that's why I'm hungry. But I did eat spaghetti after and lots of chocolate that my sister sent me.

It all started this morning when I heard a voice talking Hindu or something really loud. Then a knock at the door. I got up really fast. Then I heard the Hindu voice getting further away. I opened the door and there was a parcel there. The mailman was talking on his cell phone. He looked back, I nodded my head to say thanks, he nodded and walked away continuing to talk on his cell phone.

She went to Hollywood a few weeks ago and sent me some cool gifts. Lots of chocolate (nothing to do with Hollywood it was just that she sent the present at Easter - though I'm pretty sure you could buy chocolate in Hollywood if you wanted to).

She sent me a Los Angeles Police Department t-shirt which is amazing. There was also a California Highway Patrol patch (I have had the theme song to Chips in my head all day). She sent me an Oscar statue that says "Best Brother") - it looks great! Also, a book and a Homer Simpson bobblehead. Oh, and a pair of socks that are striped and say Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary or something like that with an inmate number.

It was great - just like Christmas!

Oh well... I would order a shawarma but we ordered some last night. Maybe I should skip a day.

I recently learned - well, I'm pretty sure at least - that the guy who sells me BBQ Pork in an Asian grocery store is actually a woman who sells BBQ pork. I always thought it was a young guy but one day it struck me - I asked Sara and she said she's pretty sure it's a woman. I don't really care as long as the BBQ pork is good. Which it is. Today she helped us find the frozen shrimp section in the store. Why do you need to know this? I have no idea. I had to post about something.

As well, today I practiced my new skill of tearing a telephone book in two with my bare hands. Didn't work so far. But maybe one of these days after I successfully tear one, I will put the video up on YouTube or something.

For some reason, we keep buying bungee cords, deciding we don't need any anymore and we give them away. Then, we need bungee cords again and we have to buy some more. Then, the same thing happens, we get rid of them and need some again. We need some now. We will buy them. Maybe we will keep them this time. But probably not.

We went to visit the in-laws this weekend.

We went to a mall that has an amusement park in it.

Sara and I went on the bumper cars. Smashing into the cars of adults was fun. But at the beginning I felt bad speeding up and smashing into the cars of kids. But after like 30 seconds and having a bunch of kids hit my car, the game was on. It was cool. Well, not the smashing into kids part don't worry.

Then, I went on one of those rides where you're on a train that goes around the mall (basically a ride for kids that adults can go on as well) with my nephew. It was sloooooooooooooooow. But oddly, it was actually a lot of fun.

Then Sara and I went on the roller coaster. Man it was fast. It was cool.

Here's something you didn't expect to read coming from me. I bought the new Hilary Duff album yesterday. And I love it.

We walked around all afternoon. When we were walking home we realized that we went around the world almost in our own city. We went to a chinese bakery to buy a tuna bun (sort of a tuna sandwich). We went to an indian place to buy a samosa. We went to a german place to buy a couple of small sandwiches. We went to a japanese place to buy some sushi rice, nori and rice vinegar to make sushi for supper. We went to two italian places to buy a gift for someone and to buy cold cuts. I think there are probably other places we went without thinking about it but that's our trip around the world for the day. Oh, and we realized we can say thank you in lots of languages - xie xie in chinese (mandarin), danke in german, arigato in japanese (we said it to the japanese lady), grazie in italian. I just don't know how to say thank you to the guy in the indian store in his language. I will ask next time. For some reason, he was all friendly today. Usually he doesn't say much.
