Decided to declare Wednesday a relative-free day (except for parents who are usually fairly tame anyway) and went to hang out downtown. The original plan consisted of Chinatown, North End, shopping for underwear in Filene's and hanging out and having some sake with Anya, but then Anya started having contractions and was in no condition for hanging out and sake, and it started raining so hard that the idea of dragging myself all the way to North End or Filene's stopped feeling exciting, so I just went to Chinatown.

Chinatown is improving along with the rest of the Western world. More and better restaurants and stores, some construction and less undesirable element. Due to construction the undesirable element relocated from the southern to the northern part of Chinatown, and nowadays they don't try to sell me drugs with the same enthusiasm as they did 10-15 years ago. I don't know whether it's because they have become lazy, or because I have reached the age when one is not expected to buy one's drugs from the undesirable element in Chinatown.

Bought a truckload of DVDs, am afraid to think of the credit card bill. Decided to come back and buy some more in October, so that at least the stuff is on the next month's bill. Would like to buy some Cantopop too, but do not know what to buy. Maybe should ask the people who sell it for advice.

Had some sake on my own, but that is not the same. Got some takeout food, too. Good as always.

Gotta go there again soon.
