"I got a strawberry Turkish Delight. It was OK, but I wouldn’t betray my siblings for it." Are You Gonna Eat That? recently moved to her own website, and I recommend her. I should probably figure out how to add a "blog roll" to deadfile, but then I'd have to face the usual dilemmas about who to link and who to read in secret, etc.
On the way to work this morning I picked up a breakfast burrito at the Blake's Lotaburger nearest my house (sausage, red, $3.72 with tax). I'm said to say it was mostly flavorless, with potatoes that had clearly been frozen and had the texture of cooked and then dried linguine, and not enough sausage. The red wasn't bad, and the eggs were pretty good. It's clearly a handheld, meant to pass through a truck window and be eaten on the way to a jobsite, not messy but fillng, and a little bigger than my increasingly middle-aged apetite could comfortably handle.
Finally, let me say that I'm not a fan of weblog posts that follow the pattern of my first paragraph above; or worse, just consist of a one-sentence summary, a link, and a paragraph-long quote. I realize that these are one of the two or three canonical weblog posts (others being journal-style amateur offerings and full-length newspaper articles in draft or disguise). I just find them flavorless, along with headlines that say "Bad Things to Happen Right Away, Experts Say" or "Our Prejudices Proved Right Yet Again: Think-tank."
I'm back from a week in Seoul. Right now I'm so tired and my "to do" list is so long I doubt it will merit a post by itself, which is a shame. Tougher than Tokyo and further away.
