Wednesday's Digressions







  • Most thought provoking text I've received in a while: "Is _____ going to be there? Don't get me wrong, I'm happy you've met someone. I'm just not in the mood to meet new girlfriend today!"
  • Recently I commented on the excellent English language skills of a newly arrived immigrant from Vietnam. Yes we all learn English now- French is no too good anymore. It's gone. Was her slightly foibled response to my asking her if she spoke English. I asked if she had applied to college yet. No, not yet but so soon I will. I intend to get my hospitality or marketing degree and work promoting a large city or corporation.
  • There is not a doubt in my mind she will.
  • The future of America was born in a suburb of Saigon.
  • Yes, I know foibled isn't technically a word but it should be.
  • Few things are more nerve wracking than a person who thinks they have the common touch that are actually clueless to interacting with others. I mean really- it goes all over me to have to deal with yutzes like that.
  • At my breakfast place I can tell who is cooking by the presentation, warmth and flavorfulness of the food. How can that be? They have the same training, equipment, food and spices etc to work from.
  • My spell check says flavorfulness is not a word.
  • In your face spell check!
  • Done Right Lawn and Services is owned by some guys who are really trying. Let them mow your yard or haul some crap off etc. and you'll both feel better about yourselves.

Cooks are like artists. Sure I have paint, brushes and canvas. But nobody will ever mistake my work for Michelangelo.

My grandmother always told me I was really trying as well.

I frequently have friends ask me if I'm on the Facebook yet.

Nope.

I waste too much time as it is.
