Lowering Expectations

Seems to be the best mode for survival

2 cups of coffee and no smiles

June 23, 2008

On Friday, I spent way too much time dealing with my car.  Front brakes (and stuff) replaced, rear tires replaced, a nice 2,000NIS.  Anyhoo, I had some time to wander around the Kfar Saba industrial zone, so I walked into 2 eateries (enough time had passed between eatery 1 and eateyr 2).

The first was a bakery, which prides itself on flavors the owner’s father used to bake with. Or something.  The kid behind the counter had no smiles for me (true, I had none for him, but it was early, and my car was in the shop).  The coffee was weak (jeez) and the brownie I was served was cold on a cold plate.  It was not gooey (how can something COLD be gooey), and the white chocolate in the middle was hard and its flavor did not blend in at all.  I think they understood I was not happy, because they gave me a nother small brownie-slice.

I will not go back, but I wish them well.

In the second, I asked for an americano, made strong. So they put in less water.

Still no smiles, only this time the coffee REALLY stank.

Oh, well, better luck next time.

At a wedding last night

June 19, 2008

2 women walked in, and I said to K “Romy and Michele just walked in.”

She couldn’t stop laughing.  Yes, they looked like Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow in the classic 1997 movie, Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion.

Some things are just too funny.

WE WON!!!!

In other words, the Boston Celtics thrashed the Los Angeles Lakers, to win the Finals of the NBA this year.

I am happy about this.
