The Working Man’s a Sucker!   1 comment

Well, I’m happy to be a sucker if that’s the case.  At least for now.  I apologize for not being able to post as often, I know I have loyal followers out there who yearn to hear of my exploits daily, but work tracks my every move online, just like big brother, so I have to use my best trickery to keep them in the dark as I muse over daily life happenings here.

So let’s see.  Wife and I got into a bike race in Italy recently.  You can read about it here.  We and 50 other Americans got into the race through a lottery…29,000 applied for 4,800 spots, how lucky we got in!  It’s in the mountains, we are very excited.  Maybe I can find Belgian waffles in Italy?

Here is something interesting, I’m sick.   I’m sick of many things, but right now I’m just physically sick.  I have a cold.  And if you know me at all, you know I am the essence and personification of well-being.  How did I get sick?  How could my immune system let me down?  I have my suspicions, oh do I!  There is a weak link in this small office.  Someone, and I won’t mention names Denise, but someone came into the office right before the holiday and coughed, wheezed, sneezed and hacked her way through the 9-5 hours.  Gee, I wonder…is that how I got sick?

Well, I’m glad she is better.  I was worried.

You may address your well wishes in the comments section for me.  I am here in my cube, coughing, wheezing, and hacking my way through the 9-5 hours.  I’ll be sure to touch everything in this office while I’m here this week.  Enjoy.

No Belgian Waffles In America!!   Leave a comment

Okay, so we left off last with my better half and I taking off on an odyssey to experience European Bliss, i.e. Belgian Waffles and creepy Crepes at this nouveau riche French American brasserie, or here in the States, simply a cheese shop that sells other stuff.

Because we had tried and failed to accomplish this seemingly simple task previously both here and abroad,  I had the forethought to call ahead to confirm with the fancy cheese shop that all systems were a go, and we could have waffle yumminess upon our arrival. It wasn’t meant to be. Insert frown face here. Of all the kitchen equipment to fail that day, and this place has a bunch of kitchen equipment, of all the items that could fail and did fail, it was the waffle maker. Yes, on what was to be a glorious calorie-gouge-fest, the piece de resistance crapped out.

I’m about to give up on this waffle nonsense and just stick with what works. You may ask what works…or you may not ask, but I’ll tell you anyway. Four pop-tarts, that’s what. Two strawberry frosted, and two cinnamon-chocolate frosted. Mmmmm.

I’ll tell you another thing you may not care to hear…this fancy cheese shop is getting dangerously close to something bad, I don’t know what yet, but it’ll be bad, I assure you. Fix the damn waffle maker, monsieur…tout de suite!
