My "Chinese" linecook runs into the back saying "All at one time! All at one time! Need help!" in the best Chinese accent he can muster. I go up to the line and start looking over the orders, to decide what needs to be done first. Then I notice a hole in each ticket. He had pulled filled orders off the peg and put them up on the line! What a joker!

Being told my resume looked really good for a part-time temp job working for a very large communications company doing freelance copywriting, editing and web posting. I'm meeting with her next week. This will be evening and weekend work so that I can make a little extra money for Xmas, the new interior for my Miata and my trip to Orlando in January. Everybody keep their fingers crossed for me!

Watching my little girl Pug pull her dog bed out from under the futon bed (where it is stored during the day) and plop herself down for a nap!

Our littlest chicken has been "knocking" on the door all day.
