Pasta-related program activities

Subject: Noir
A soupy, humid tropical morning turned into a stormy, rainy one when I went to the grocery store for supplies. On impulse I picked up some fresh pasta and assorted accompaniments because...

...I'm going to marathon "Cowboy Bebop".

Wait, what?!

Okay, at the time I decided to marathon "MADLAX" again. But now I'm waffling on that... It's been longer since I've last watched Bebop, and it is definitely more of a "party" series that won't leave me weak-willed and listless in the morning.

But, the rain! And the pasta!!

...Okay, okay, I'm going to decide this way: let the OSTs fight it out! While I do a few random acts of housekeeping, I'll see where I am after a random mix has it's way with my stereo.

Update: aaaand the winner is..... "MADLAX"! Yay!

...actually, the winner was Bebop, but watching episode 1 I realized that although it's awesome and fun, I associate it more with grilling steaks instead of pasta, and it's too wet to grill steaks right now. Tomorrow, on the other hand, I'm grillin' steak. So "MADLAX" for the win.

...but I'm not going to start all the way at the top; instead I'm going to dial it back to where Vanessa arrives in Gathz-wheresisface (I can never spell it without looking it up). That should be sufficient.

I'm surprised you're not saving "Noir" and "Madlax" for a post-"El Cazador" rewatch marathon.

I couldn't really help myself. I found myself thinking about Noir too much last week, and then the discussion thread over on AnimeOnDVD had me thinking about MADLAX. Though all told, I should have watched Bebop anyhow, because predictably I was useless yesterday.
