So every morning I take the bus to Port Authority and then take the subway to work. So if you’ve been to the Port, you know there’s Au Bon Pain everywhere. I remember getting stuff there sometimes when I went to NYU and it being pretty good. Well I was running late and just getting hungry so I decided to get a chocolate croissant there. ………….WOW what a mistake.

Ok, I’m not one of those food snobs. I just really can’t distinguish good food from great food. I’m sure I can pick what I think is better but when I’m eating I don’t tend to compare. I just savor what’s in front of me. It’s either tasty and edible or not. This is why I can eat leftovers for days and days.

Anyway. I don’t know if it was a bad batch or what. But considering I’ve been eating a lot of Amy’s Bread’s and Sarabeth’s chocolate croissant, I expect buttery goodness. Which this was not. I can’t describe the disappointment. It’s like if you were in some raffle for a million dollars and they’re going to announce the winner’s name. So you hear the first, “Gina ..” so you take a step forward with a goofy grin on your face. “.. Rodriguez!” OOOHHHHHH. She pushes past you. And there you are. Foolish. That’s how I feel. Dang…

And yes, I’m a chocolate croissant snob.

World_Beard_and_Moustache_Championship_1

2009 World Beard and Mustache Championships took place in Alaska yesterday.  Nuff said.

So I heard about this bank error on Today’s show.  It’s basically about a man named Leo Gao who received over $6 million in his bank account in error and instead of notifying the bank, he decided to flee the country with his girl friend Kara Young with the money.  Then I found out he is KOREAN!!!!! WTF?????  Seriously, why I am hearing so much about Koreans in the news?  It sucks since it’s usually something bad.

This isn’t a photoshopped pix.  It’s Zachary Boyd wearing his “i love ny” boxers while defending against the Taliban.  I can’t imagine what would’ve happened if they were captured or something and the conversation that might’ve taken place between the Taliban soliders.  I’m certain at least few Taliban soldiers would’ve totally chuckled.  You could read the actual speech by Bob Gates here talking about Zachary in NYtimes.
