It's not that funny today...

The Virgin Megastore on Market Street is closing.

This is a bummer for any number of reasons, the #1 of which is that my friend Frank the KJ from the Mint works there, and is therefore about to be out of a job. :(

I am going to head over there and pretty much buy up their supply of Barrowman CDs as they have been my major source, including the only place I was ever able to find the Grease album.

It also sucks because it's another major business in SF going under, and this is just on the heels of Stacy's which is one of the last independent bookstores in the City.

In a similarly depressing vein, the LAW FIRM I'm staffed at had a bunch of layoffs yesterday. Both attorneys and admins, including some of the admins I had a really good relationship. The question is whether the attorneys will now have to book themselves *SHUDDER* or if the remaining admins will just be spread a little thinner.

Naturally this also raises the Phil spector of what kind of shape the LAW FIRM is in, and how long they'll keep using two different travel agencies, much less keep our office in SF open with two agents.

SCARY

Food/Exercise update---

I'm on my 4th day of no caffeine/sugar and somewhat less starch/fat.
Fruit and cheese instead of Earl Grey and Coffee Cake for Breakfast
A Mixt Greens Salad instead of a massive Sandwich for lunch.
Chicken/veggies/Fruit for dinner instead of scarfing massive amounts of chips and dip. I swear to god, the last few months, I was all about the Ruffles and the Dip. Like tubs of the stuff. It's a wonder I can fit into anything at this point and there's a lot that's gotten awfully tight.

Gym on Monday and Wednesday and I walked to work today.

I might sign up for the Zippy the Pinhead 5-K, just to be specifically training for something, despite my disappointment with last year's event. (Ugly shirt, no doughnuts.)
