I finally saw the movie “Twilight” for the first time this week.

The only thing I really took away from it was that one of the characters mentioned “Kitsap County”, which is the area of Washington state that I’m from.

Oh, and the acting was dreadful.

I believe the only direction the actors were given was this:

“Look uncomfortable.”

“Look angst-ridden.”

“Look like you just ate lots of hummus and potato salad that’s been left out in the sun for an unknown period of time and it’s beginning to wreck havoc on your bowels, but you’re not ready to run for the toilet just yet.”

I don’t get what the fuss is about. However, I believe the older one gets, the more one picks everything apart.

I recently watched a movie I loved as a child. All I could do was comment on the awful special effects and the fact that the flying dragon in “Neverending Story” doesn’t look real anymore! SO disappointed.


So, where were we?

I had an awful day at work. My clients were all emailing me at once and wanting answers within minutes. What would they have done if I wasn’t at work that day? Implode? Most likely.

I had a business dinner at this little Chinese spot blocks from my house, located in the infamous Whole Foods plaza.

If you ever want to discover if you have any hidden homicidal tendacies, attempt to find a parking spot here on a saturday afternoon. You will be laughing hysterically as the police haul you away, the warm cadaver still stuck in your front grill.

Kung Pao has an amazing dish. The West Hollywood Wonton Soup.

It’s your basic, boring wonton soup, kicked up a few notches. Lots of wontons filled with tasty miscellaneous meat. Chunks of BBQ pork. Not too soggy bok choy. White meat chicken fragments.

N.R., my business partner in my sub shop venture, and I split a batch of really tasty egg rolls.

I love egg rolls, even bad ones. Even soggy ones filled only with ancient cabbage, thawed after being recently discovered at the back of a freezer.

Left there from when another restaurant occupied the space.
