Various things contributed to a very flat day at work…so flat that it did not require my extended presence…therefore…(note: I wish the normal fonts had the 3 little dots in a triangle that indicate “therefore “ in geometric and logical equations)…so took the afternoon off…went to the local Ponderosa for lunch…and hit it on the head…they had the 3 most fav things of mine on the buffet at lunch…a very nice pot roast with potatoes and carrots served just with the pot juices (true the beef as over done but still tender and a lot of flavor,how be it a bit stringy)…a green bean casserole…and boiled cabbage…and my usual beef tips entrĂ©e…one of these days I must request a comment card and see if there is a way to get a bottle of regular vinegar or malt vinegar on the table…as I was paying my bill I got a greet from the pair behind me and discovered the pastor and associate pastor from the church I attend…the pastor is a great guy…the associate is new and the verdict is still out on him but I think eventually I will get past a few minor things and be cool with him…

Re-watched the current “Top Chef” episode and still can’t believe that none of the chef’s tumbled to the fact that cooking for a California athlete meant surfers and an open fire of some sort…

Watched “Survivor” tonight and Jonathan is gone…thank you…his presence on the show was a major irritant…

But I think that the “ruling group” waited one show too long to divest themselves of the turncoat and could be a factor in the jury’s vote…

‘Tis still a tad early for me and bed but am nodding off as I type this…or is it keyboard this…heck I grew up using slide rules and computers were something you wired to get the results you wanted so modern nomenclature is something I just am not comfortable with…

Nite All!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A reasonable day at work, not a good or a bad day just reasonable…winter is upon us…got 8 to 8 inches overnight yesterday and a dusting over =night last night…”Top Chef” tonight blew my mind…the elimination challenge was to cook breakfast for as the challenge was stated for “California Athletes”…and were not given what cooking methods would be available to them…as soon as I heard the term “California Athlete” I assumed surfer and open fire…which proved to be the case…strange that none of the chefs tumbled to the obvious…heck my cats were wandering around the house humming Beach Boy’s songs…

Despite the fact that I got up before 6 AM to get to work to do what needed to be done so I could get to worship team warm-ups by 8 AM the day has been a gentle one…went to Ponderosa for brunch…I must be going there too often because the cashier was about to tell me what to do with the receipts…and then did a double take and said you know what to do with these…rats…not the best fare but decent…affordable and easy…although I can afford more…why pass on decent food and a senior citizen discount…now I can’t get blood out of pinching a penny like my dad could …but I will not pay for more quality then I need at the time…besides they do have a very fine sausage gravy on the bunch menu which is one of my fav things…
