Call it a touch of pms...

February 4th, 2008 (11:07 pm)

But I'm sitting here sniveling my ass off
watching Anthony Bourdain's New Orlean's episode
of his Travel Channel show, No Reservations.

The near closing scene just now, with him gathered amongst the cooks and waiters
and other service industry ilk... raising drinks, laughing and hugging.

yeah, ginger is just a snotty weepy mess, laughing along with the tv.

Fucking EXCELLENT episode folks, even if your people aren't from that part of the
world like mine are--and you aren't a 20 year restaurant veteran...
Catch it if you get the chance.

*rubbing tears out of her eyes*

Yeah.....*sigh* I stopped and picked up candy necklaces from the dollar store tonight
for all the folks at work tomorrow--along with the rather large box of AUTHENTIC
Biloxi-tossed beads from last years Mardi Gras...I just happen to have on hand. ^_^
I'll have my Opal's crew BOH and FOH all decked out for Fat Tuesday tomorrow morning.

Well then I'm glad I didn't toss out any spoilers...
I almost did.

It's awesome.

So I need dinner, and I'm driving, and I go, "HEY! Ginger's working tonight! I'll stop off and get dinner and maybe hide in the corner or say hi!"....

"Ginger? No, she's allowed to take shifts up here at THE MARINA, but she stays down south mostly."

Humf.

Good burger, though.

Aww, man...

Yeah, I'm still working the South store.
They give me a regular schedule and I really want to keep as Central as possible
even though I am living in the Northern wastelands for the moment.

GIR and Pig

No I am not!

Never ONCE said I actually worked a shift there,
I just have a pint there AFTER work...

Better to have one two miles from where I sleep
than 20?

I'm mixed on Anthony Bourdain. I like some of the places he visits, but what rankles me is that to me he's just another gorilla-armed, chest beating, northeastern male and all of that world travel hasn't rounded the edges or made him any less of a meathead. That, unfortunately, is another one of my USA regional prejudices that I am ashamed to admit possessing.

My addiction has been Samantha Brown. I'd love to have her job. I wouldn't mind having her, but the chances of that are slim-to-none, so I'll just take the job!
