Not My Idea of a Spectacular Return – It’s All Suzi’s Fault…

“I’ll Be In Here If You Need Me”
Taken August 1, 2006 with Sony DSC-S40

I had expected to come back here with a finished “Landlady Story”. Nope. Not finished.

Then, I figured, I’d post the new cartoon I’m working on. Nope. Not finished.

So, I thought, well, it’ll probably be Ky’s Spring Concert video. Sorry. Not rendered.

Then, on my way back from a grocery run this afternoon, I came across two birds doing… well…. let’s say I got it all on tape, and boy, are THEY gonna be embarassed! But, again, something else came to the fore… Suzi, damn her, tagged me with a meme!

But, it seemed faster to do the meme than any of the other things, so, here goes.

The rules:

1. Add a direct link to your post below the name of the person who tagged you. Include the state/province and country you’re in.

Nicole (Sydney, Australia)
Velverse (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)
LB (San Giovanni in Marignano, Italy)
Selba (Jakarta, Indonesia)
Olivia (London, England)
ML (Utah, USA)
J (California, USA)
CuriosityKiller (Hong Kong, SAR)
Shelli (Minnesota, USA)
Suzi (Minnesota, USA)
Where the Walls are Soft (Les Becker, Ontario, CANADA)

Okay, done.

2. List your top 5 favorite places to eat at your location (locally).

1) The Sun Kwong Restaurant – I worked here… twice. The people that run it are really a lot of fun to work for, and the eggrolls are to die for. It used to drive me nuts when I had to work on the days they’d make them. The whole family would be in back putting them together and it took all day – I had to smell them cooking for the entire shift. I have to have them every time I go there – it’s definitely my all-time favourite restaurant – best chinese food in town. I think I may have to take the kid there this weekend, now that I’ve written this.

2) Gran Festa Ristorante – They made me the best broccoli-stuffed chicken I’ve ever eaten. I think it’s probably the most expensive meal I’ve ever eaten, too. Worth it ‘though. So worth it.

3) That Italian Place Whose Name I Can Never Remember in the Food Court at the Station Mall – but they have the only pizza I can eat anymore, so they make the list. Ricardo’s That’s it!

4) Joey Calzones – for their calamari… I’d eat there more often if I wasn’t invisible when I go in. Depressing enough to not bother most of the time.

5) Red Lobster – which doesn’t even exist here anymore, and hasn’t for years. If they ever open up another one, I will go back to waitressing, just to be near the lobster. Yup.

Somehow, I thought that would be harder than it was.

And Rule # 3:

Tag 5 people.

Yeah, right. Suzi stole two of them from me. Let’s see….

The PopEye, Rhea, Carol, Deni, and Dink.

Apologies all around if you don’t “do” memes, but like I said, It’s all Suzi’s fault!

As far as my schedule, I’ll probably be popping out again for a bit, unless one of those “I wishes” at the top of the post gets finished. I’m catching up at school, though. I’m down to 11 courses now, and somewhere I think I miscounted the weeks left, because now when I count them, I still have 16 weeks left before my deadline. Perhaps I found that Time-Machine, after all and made an adjustment and forgot? Hmmmmm….

  1. Glad to see you up and running again, even tho’ it involves a tag or two. I usually don’t do these, but as it’s you, ‘n all, I’ll drag my sorry ass up to the plate.. but watch out, ‘cos I’ll get you back, just see if I don’t.

    (Fornicating pigeons are far more my style..)


    Les Says: For some odd reason, Carol, I’m not in the least bit surprised – about the getting back at me OR the pigeons… LOL!

  2. Son of a bee-sting, you’re the THIRD person to tag me with this! I will get around to it…after this week’s Idol madness.

    Les says: This means you’re reviewing 15 restaurants then? That’d be SO much better than Idol.

  3. Hi I’ve just noticed the link you have to my name is you mind please correcting it because I am trying to compile a list of the tag doers and is quite hard for me to do so if the links are wrong..thanks
