24 hour stuff [Dec. 20th, 2001|12:30 am]

more stuff needs to be open 24 hours.
powells, barnes and noble, and borders... all close at 11 or midnight.
i want to drive and i want to drive to a bookstore.
but nothing's open.
so what am i suppose to do? sleep? bleh.

i read a review of a book written by a person that had supposedly been translating between english and german for 15 years. her review misused "its" and "it's" several times. *sigh* Well, I guess that says her native language is English. :P

more amusing: opened amazon and it said "Welcome Blythe!" heh. naah, she didn't do any 1-click shopping.

played with KDevelop a bit. pretty neat. too bad i have no time to really get involved with it, or anything.

yeah, guess i'll go to bed.

Main thing I love about being back in Atlanta rather than Los Angeles:

Waffle Houses. 24-hours, 365 days a year. No crappy menu-changing like they do in Denny's, either. (I hear ya on the 24-hour thing--I can only work from the hours of 12am to 6am. Hence, I am up right now...)

Re:

I passed by the westernmost Waffle House in the country on my roadtrip.

Phoenix, Arizona.

Northernmost one is in Columbus, Ohio.

But really, any Waffle House north of the Mason-Dixon seems really odd.

They have Waffle Houses in Cincinnati, thank god.

I never really paid attention, but I guess they aren't up north, are they? Hrm.

Do you guys have Steak & Shake? That's a pretty damn good 24 hour joint.

Re:

Yup, we have those too. Best shakes in the business. Period. Had one right next to our hs--we'd always go there for Cookies & Cream milkshakes, at least until I turned lactose intolerant. ::gripes::

Well, at least you could still enjoy the steakburgers. Mmmmmmmm.

One time we asked nicely and got a whole box of those little chocolate cookies they have. Heh.

There definitely needs to be more 24 hour stores open. Hell, I wish everything was open 24/7 (no traffic at night). I was hoping there'd be more things open 24 hours a day here in Seattle than in Salem, but that doesn't seem to be the case. At least stuff is open here later (several of the porn shops in Salem closes at 10 pm... don't ask why I know that. ;).
