Brain Spaghetti

Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed the huge number of people who post on Facebook and Twitter who can't spell, or use the wrong word? I'm not taking about typos of which we're all guilty at some time or other. How often have you seen someone use 'there' instead of 'they're', or 'your' instead of 'you're'? Another favorite is the use of 'were' when they mean 'where'. My all-time favorite was the guy who held up a sign calling us (gays) 'morons', but he misspelled it!

Dinner at home. If you think pasta is only good with spaghetti sauce, or meat sauce, you haven't tried Bob's Pasta. Yum yum, miam miam.

The Way We Were

Dinner at Dapur on Saturday. We started with the Shrimp Martini, Tiger shrimp wrapped in rice paper with a pineapple-peach chutney. Very good! Our main course, was the usual Crispy Duck which was excellent as always.

It is becoming a chore to keep this thing going. When I first started on Open Diary, there were a lot of people that I read and posts on which I left comments, and who, for the most part, read and commented on my diary. But most of them are now gone. A couple died, but most have just disappeared into the internet ether-world. In the past six months, I haven't gotten as many comments as I used to get on a daily basis. For a couple weeks in a row I got absolutely no comments and only one of two people even bothered to post anything. I suppose I'll keep it going (though sporadically) for my own amusement and a way to check back and see how we were getting through the days.

The other day after viewing a video on You Tube, I was given the option of about a dozen or so other videos. One of those happened to be the video of Bush LYING about seeing the first plane hit the WTC tower on 9/11. This, of course, lead me to watch other videos about 9/11 and seemingly logical comments by experts in various fields of architecture and building stress. It still disturbs me to this day that the American people have bought into the government's obvious campaign to make it seem as though we had actually been attacked by a group of Saudis on a suicide mission. You may recall, that most of the so-called suicide people were later seen alive and well in Morocco!  Supposedly, they were American Airline planes that had been hi-jacked, but if you look at the videos, you'll see they were NOT American Airline jets and there were actually no markings on them at all.  Then, if you check out the so-called plane flying into the Pentagon, you see there WAS NO PLANE.  The most obvious reason for the attack was the $300 Billion in gold bars in storage under the buildings of which little was recovered!  View the accusatory videos for yourself and think about it objectively. I'm curious to know what you decide.

Moon Rip

Got a strange urge to be ripped off? Try this: For Sale: Acre Lots on Moon With Earth View, $19.99. Want to own a little piece of heaven? It's yours, starting at $19.99 an acre--on the moon. If you prefer, you can buy property on Venus or Mercury. Now considering they don't own the moon, or any part of it, that's about as blatant a ripoff as one can get!  If you want to be ripped even further, you can pay to name a star.  Of course, the star won't be given the name you choose, but hey, what do you want for a couple hundred dollars?

Saturday, Robb invited a long-time friend for lunch. We went to the Alibi (it used to be called Georgie's Alibi, but the owner sold it and allowed the new owner to use Alibi, but not Georgie's, although everyone still calls it Georgie's) where we attempted to sit on the patio. The music was so loud we had to shout at each other to be heard, so we moved inside. It was somewhat better, but the longer we were there, the louder it got. The waiter found it immensely funny that we are all named Robert (Robb's friend is named Roberta). Georgie's has very good snack foods, although we have gone there for dinner a few times. I had the Coconut Shrimp, Robb had the Veggie Burger, and Roberta had something that for the life of me I cannot remember.
