M'Heart's all a Twitter

So, I'm a Twitter-er, now. That must be long for "twit", which in it's slang definition can mean a foolish, ridiculous, annoying, uncool person... that's how it feels. That's how I feel. We have websites, blogs, youtube, myspace, facebook-- and I know I missing many other means of trying to garner my 15 minutes of fame. And the truth is, I'm probably one of the last people on the planet to join Twitter (which makes me a twit, I suppose) I am behind the times and I may never catch up. But, I can't help but be intrigued and slightly addicted to this whole concept of sharing every waking moment with the whole world. So, I wonder... maybe being a twit is a good thing and oh so cool, after all.

If you really have nothing to do, you can see my twitting in the left margin.

A Tale of 2 Toilets

Seriously, didn't our mamas teach us to turn around and make sure we cleaned up after ourselves after peeing or crapping? Didn't they teach us that it was simply bad form and uncouth to leave remnants of our business for others to see? I mean really it's not anybody's business. Aaahhhh the good old days when you could walk into a public stall and see this:

Today, it's different. People have less class. Less manners. Less practicing of the Golden Rule. Less common sense. Today, most toilet stalls look like this:

Come people! Turn around!

Gluttony Immortalized...

Blogging 2 days straight. It's all the eating. I'm Food Drunk.

Today, I'll let the attached video speak for itself, except to say "mahalo" to Renee Gomes for such a unique and unforgettable dining experience-- my favorite kind. And to my dining companions Colleen and Dee, thank you for being there to feel as sick, or sicker, actually, than me.

Happy Birthday Food/ Restaurant Plugs

Well, it's October and that is birthday month for me. Seriously, it takes me a few days of the month to celebrate with everyone that wants to celebrate me. I am one lucky bastard. I am also a fatter than normal bastard in October.

I can stay the same weight for a REALLY long time. But, October is the month that if I'm going to move to the next pants size up-- well, I'll do it in October. So far, so good, despite a retarded amount of over-eating.

Anyway, plug #1:

Restaurant of the year for me this year is Alan Wongs and Alan Wongs: The Pineapple Room. Tasty friggin' food. Today we'll talk about the Pineapple Room. I spent my actual birthday at the Pineapple Room. For lunch, the standout dishes for me are the Cobb Salad and the Tempura Mahi Sandwich. After that, the Cheeseburger. For dinner, the Maui Onion Soup. Everyone that has the basic French Onion Soup on the menu thinks they do it different. The Pineapple Room really pulls off different. So, different that I know two people that hate the soup. But, I love it. I won't tell you how it's diffferent. Just go try it.

Happy eating. More later.
