forgive me....

Please forgive me for not being around. I'm so tired....

Working 5 days a week, going to class 3 nights a week and I've been helping to teach a motorcycle safety instructor course on the weekends. Whew! Yep, I'm wiped out.

On a happy note, Thursday, Oct. 19th was my birthday. I took the day off and had a nice lunch with MY GIRLS, MY POSSE, MY PEEPS... We had lunch at Dot's Back Inn on the Northside. Dot's is a great little neighborhood eatery. They have the most awesome Reuben!

Waiterrant! Bravo!

Waiter's post for yesterday is truly sublime! Check out "Void Codes" at

"...a “void” is when management removes an item from a customer’s check"

Some highlights:

21. Customer didn’t take medication this morning. (Prozac)
22. Server didn’t take medication this morning. (Marijuana)
23. Manager didn’t take medication this morning. (Jim Beam)
24. Everybody must get stoned!
25. Customer didn’t listen to waiter’s recommendations. (The “I told you so” void.)
30. The “shut the customer the fuck up” void!
