Misc.

I happened to look at the label on a bottle of "Juice Squeeze" Ruby Grapefruit juice. It's 70% juice, but has no significant amount of vitamin C. So not much of that juice is actually grapefruit? Guess I should stick with Izze's.

I'm getting kind of tired of the refrigerators at my usual hotels. The controls on most of them are broken and they are usually stuck way too low--- cans of soda freeze up solid. The internet access has been pretty flaky this time too.

I tried Dancy Sushi (San Antonio Road in Mountain View) last night, since it's close to work. It was OK, but it won't be a priority for dinner. They gave me a very nice complementary appetizer--- fried squid in a spicy + honey sauce, and the gyoza were good. The cuts of maguro were generous but tough, and the tempura roll I ordered was unwieldy and came with a sauce I found somewhat unpleasant. But the service was friendly and the sashimi looked very fresh.

On Sci-Fi, "Pitch Black" sponsored by "Underworld: Rise of the Lycans" with promos for "Battlestar Galactica" is a color-palette... um... experience? Underexperience? Let's just say the chrominance signal is not getting much of a workout.
