lunchtime random: found lines, cuban dance, and footy

- Lunch was samosa chaat with extra Extra tamarind sauce. They treat me right at Chaat Cafe, where the woman who works the counter looks like topayz4's long-lost sister..

- Best "found line" of the week: The last sentence in Mary Robinette Kowal's twitter summary post from yesterday:

"The monkey is a Belgian Blonde."

That's a whole story right there, in the burgeoning field of "monkey noir". I will write that story one day. Or, I will email doctor_sassy and tell her that I have a new case for Sam, the world's greatest monkey private detective. She'll know what I mean.

- New CD acquired at Frye's: Best of Cuban Beats. Dance music of all flavors based on cuban rhythms. Nice for coding, clubbing, reading, or just hanging out. And it was only $12 for 3CDS! Such a bargain.

- Hey it's the footy club! In a new picture on the website where we pose with our new second-hand uniforms (thanks to GGAFL) and our new hand-made goals:



Bald guy, third from the left, blue shirt, in the back, that's me! The guy in front of me is Travis. Running into Travis is like running into a brick wall. You just bounce off.

The guy near the middle, in the white shirt, that's Matt. Matt and Amy (on the far left) are the organizers of the club. Matt also happens to be the coach of the US Footy team for the 2011 International Cup. We're learning from the best here!
