Yes, hello I would like to order a dozen of these delivered to my room please?

It is cellos, it is a cover of AC/DC, you should all listen to this, or I will set minions upon you.

Here is a philosophical dining question. When you are on an erratic schedule because your job requires you to have been in an airport at odd hours, and furthermore your mutant power inhibits your ability to sleep, by what standard do you define your meals?

Is the meal I have just eaten brunch, because it is before noon but after 10 am? Is it breakfast because it is technically the first meal I have eaten since midnight? Is it dinner because I had a bowl of pho? Does the fact that I also have tea that one might normally drink for breakfast change that?

(in addition why does this keyboard not allow me to put the proper accent mark over pho?)

I don't know any of them
I am not certain if I should be exasperated or laugh that someone printed this and taped it to my office door overnight.

I am also not certain who did the printing.

Is it possible to be exasperated -and- laugh? This is some fairly clever pop art, although I am not sure why "burger" is abbreviated to "burg".

I am all too familiar with deja vu. But what is it called when you think you have done something, clearly remember doing something, but then it is clear you have not done that thing - and then later you cannot remember what it was you were supposed to have done in the first place?

I was so certain that I had something very interesting to post about, and that I had posted about it, and now I find that I cannot remember what it was I was going to make a informative and interesting post about.

(No, Wade, it was not tacos. Nor was it food of any sort.)

Unless it was, in which case it was the blog of the food stylist for Hannibal, which is here: http://janicepoonart.blogspot.com/

Bitchy with Tea

That is a calendar made of tea. It is made of tea. I want one, but they only sent it to select businesses.

Really I want two because I want one for myself and one to give to Amanda. No, three. One for Amanda's British minion with the yellow rock name. Maybe a fourth for Wanda...

really I want a dozen of them to give as gifts, and one for me.

Why can I not have this thing? It is a tea calendar. I need it.
12th-Feb-2013 10:56 am - Once again, it is pancakes...
More milkshake!
Pancakes are the only thing I cook well, and it is Mardi Gras, and since I am in New York, not New Orleans, and so cannot acquire an immense collection of beads, I am going to celebrate with breakfast for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Pancakes at my place, I promise not to set Amanda's kitchen on fire, and if you are all very nice and bring me things I will even make flavoured ones, or pancakes shaped like the letters in your names.
11th-Feb-2013 07:47 am - Let us see..
Since this morning came with news I could not have predicted - The Catholic Pope resigned. This has not happened since Gregory XII, which was almost 600 years ago, instead I shall predict the media responses:

In no particular order,

1. Star Wars jokes that the next Pope will be voiced by James Earl Jones, or by Mark Hamill.
2. Endless speculation that he participated more fully in the cover-ups of the priests who were/are pedophiles, or was one himself.
3. Even more speculation about what would happen should the next Pope be American, Latino, Black, essentially any nationality or race not Italian or otherwise European and white
4. Betting odds posted for the candidates for the next papacy.
5. Hope and speculation that the next Pope will either reduce or remove the effects of Vatican II, because nothing both pleases and angers Catholics more than the potential return of the Latin mass.
5. And much more to my interest - a retread of that tired Papal Prophecy, though I will note curiously that one of the leading candidates for the next Papal seat is Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana, and the Prophecy of the Popes does end with "Petrus Romanus, qui paſcet oues in multis tribulationibus: quibus tranſactis ciuitas ſepticollis diruetur, & Iudex tremẽdus iudicabit populum ſuum. Finis."

Before Doug is forced to translate this for all of us, it reads: "Peter the Roman, who will nourish the sheep in many tribulations; when they are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The end."

So this will be interesting, no?

It is 4am. I am awake because Wade's phone played mariachi music and then told him it was 4:12 in the morning and did he know where his tacos were? I would have gone back to sleep only he called his friend Weasel and told him "THEY ARE IN MY BELLEH" and now I cannot sleep from laughing. I think Weasel was asleep when Wade called, which only serves him right!

Wade insists that I spell it "belleh". I do not understand why. Can someone explain this?
8th-Oct-2012 10:15 pm - a random fact
You know you love me
A random fact because it is late and I am not asleep and I have had chocolate custard.

In French, Voldemort's middle name is Elvis.
4th-Oct-2012 06:31 am - Oh very well.
Go away now
Yes I have ceased to be a hermit who only goes to work and then does little else. It has been made clear to me that it is unhealthy behavior and can lead to either mental conditions or certain co-workers visiting in the middle of the night with those party noisemakers and the music of LFMOA. LOMAF. LMFAO. Whichever letters they are.

I am going for lunch today, and I am going to insist someone come with me.
