A Little Paraguayan For Lunch?

Yeah, I’m thinking some Paraguayan sounds like a great idea for lunch. The only problem I see with that is that Paola Rios isn’t available for takeaway.

Bloody Hell Mary!

Posted in Food & Drink, Humor, Society on August 26th, 2015

Bloody Marry Brunch - And I do mean the whole brunch right there in and on a glass
Bloody Hell Mary!

I think that just about everyone who knows me knows that I’m very much not a follower of the weight-loss and fashion cartels religion of “American Obesity” and that I have exactly zero issues with the normative American trend of large and luxurious meal servings. Still, some things that I find manage to strike even me oddly, as if some restaurants have chosen to attempt to prove that Reductio ad Absurdum isn’t a fallacy after all.

And yes, I also know that creative garnishes on Bloody Marys is a thing, a meme or trope even, and a way for venues to differentiate themselves from their competition. But let’s actually list what this particular Bloody Mary is “garnished” with:

  1. Lemon & Lime
  2. Celery
  3. Olives
  4. Cocktail Onions
  5. Pickled Jalapenos
  6. Shrimp
  7. Pepperjack Cheese
  8. Chicken Wings
  9. Bacon Strips
  10. Waffle Fries
  11. Sliders

This is most assuredly the drink that eats like a meal. 😉 And indeed, it looks like a quite tasty and satisfying brunch, lunch, or after work snack. The only thing that makes me twitch – beyond the extremity of it – is that most Americans are conditioned to not “drink their meals” and would be compelled to order and eat a “normal” meal with it.

She’s An Office Wonder

Posted in Humor, Recipes, Society on August 16th, 2015

In truth, it’s hard to keep even a small office running smoothly. It involves a plethora of tasks and duties that are as needful as they are tedious. So we should appreciate our receptionist, our secretary, our administrative assistant, and most assuredly our office manager.

She’s An Office Wonder

She’s really a superheroine in business wear and a wonder in the office. A goddess, if you will, deserving of respect and worship. Who else can all that she does while, at the same time, so beautifying our work environment?

And it’s even better and more beautiful if she’s not one of the ones complaining about how cold it is in the office
