Silly me.  
I must be getting a bit forgetful. I just laughed myself silly at a web-based choose-your-own-adventure-type dating game that I wrote eight months ago.

Imagine the fun of trying to have a nice pleasant date with a girl who is an assassin for a living...

Smokey Joe's for breakfast was fun this morning. I think I should have stuck it out and waited the 20 minutes it would have taken for the vegan pancakes though. Good to see mshathvri, fallen42, cheesybunny, westofeden, formnull, moonfroggy, thechick, and chucklemagne.

In other news, Jon, a server at the Olive Garden in South San Jose, is friendly, funny, helpful, attentive, and fully deserved the ~70% tip he received from thespatula and I tonight. He was even creative--he brought me a few slices of peaches that they use to garnish iced teas, as a dessert for me. Yes, we asked to speak to a manager about him too.

We're flat broke, but hey - we do it in style....: Spaghettikshandra on December 23rd, 2005 11:36 pm (UTC)
Is that the one on Blossom Hill? They've been amazing every time I've gone in there. (I went there one evening with a book, and didn't realize just how long it had been since they'd seated me, since I was happily reading - nonetheless, the manager comped my appetizer and drink, offered me a free dessert, and when I said I didn't have the room, sent me home with it. The wait to be seated there is frequently horrendous, but it's always been worth it.)

Yes, Blossom Hill. We were seated immediately. :)

Fixed.

I'll totally goto your restaurant. Maybe some day you'll own one...
Debbiecheesybunny on December 24th, 2005 12:14 am (UTC)
I might, and I'm sure an english degree will help me get there...
chucklemagne on December 24th, 2005 03:39 pm (UTC)
Well it's a step towards working in one, anyway. ;)

I need to get a job as a waitress and you can come in my restaurant :P
Maybe someday...

LOL we ALL have an LJ.

Yup!

Hmm, I think we left Joe 20% for the counter folks. Maybe a little more.

In reading your posting, I was wondering why you had a (computer) server at Olive Garden .. what a weird co-location facility. :)

More (or less) sleep would be helfpul (helpful) :)

I prefer that word as a generic non-gender-specific term, but I do get it confused with the computer term.

Maybe I should use wait staff, or waitron for the ones who are more robot-like.

I like Waitron .. I haven't used that term in years .. I think I first heard it from Scott The Responsible/Josh The Reliable.

I'm sure I heard it from someone in the Trexer crowd.
