Monday's Missives

  • My encounter at the burrito place this morning (08/08/2014) : Hi, how may I help you? A steak and egg burrito please. OK, a bacon and egg burrito. Would you like a drink with that? No, a steak and egg burrito. OK, a bacon and egg burrito. I'll have your total at the window. Resigning myself to a bacon and egg burrito I pulled forward. You had the bacon and egg burrito- right? Well, actually it was steak and egg but a bacon and egg will be OK. Oh steak and egg?! I'm sorry. I'll get that for you. A few  minutes later she returned and handing me my food said, Its bacon and egg. Thats OK I said. Have a great day! she said.
  • On opening the bag I found a steak and egg burrito.
  • There is an ice cream shop on Rosedale called Melt. Invariably when I drive by people are taking pictures of themselves in front of the building.
  • Melt is trending on social media!
  • #melt
  • It is a funny thing when there are efforts to recover a neighborhood and draw in a better crowd of people, especially when it is in that weird in between place and it isn't quite there yet. I have literally driven by that place and seen hipsters taking selfies in front of the place and within 10 feet of them there was a semiconcious homeless person sitting there with a brown bag wrapped 40 ouncer between his legs.
  • I'm waiting for that to happen but instead of a wino with a 40  it will be a dead crackhead.
  • Deftones B Sides and Rarities- what I listend to all this morning. Great band for studio recording- terrible live.
  • Although I don't want to sound like a nitpicker- it has always bothered me that flying squirrels are called flying squirrels as they glide and do not fly.

I knew it was coming. I saw the smoke. I could hear it from a mile away. I still seriously LOL'd.

My neighborhood is sort of the same way. The yuppies haven't managed to chase out the homeless people yet, so it's an odd standoff of cultures.
