Uff Da... Where've you been???

I've been remiss in posting. I have a question for my fellow 'tech-working' bloggers...

How in the million names of the gods do you work on a computer all day, and then spend other 'outside of work' quality time, sitting on a bloody computer and writing a blog?

Och weel...

It's Sunday. I'm sitting at Merlins. I came in around 11:00am, and sat down for an AMAZING breakfast. That's right... They're doing breakfasts now too! Just on the weekend, but hey... Nothing like coming down to the pub after Mass (if you're Catholic) or just on the morning... Filling up on decent coffee, and truly 'out of this world' pub-fare breakies...

(Here's the secret... The landlord (owner) of Merlins, made a deal with a local butcher. He's getting true cuts (rashers) of bacon in the British fashion, as well as his own recipe bangers... Great fresh ingredients abound... Five types of cheese... Baked-fresh on-location Irish Soda Bread... I could keep going, but I won't...

JUST COME! If you live in the Twin-Cities, or even in the region... Get your tail over to Merlins (On E. Lake, and 36th Ave. Minneapolis) for breakfast. 9am-2pm Sat and Sun.

Okay... Enough shameless plugging...

Quick “Quizzy” thing I found over at Big Daddy Malcontent’s Blog:

How to Win a Fight With a Conservative is the ultimate survival guide for political arguments

My Liberal Identity:

You are a Reality-Based Intellectualist, also known as the liberal elite. You are a proud member of what’s known as the reality-based community, where science, reason, and non-Jesus-based thought reign supreme.

I’d suggest you all take it, and see where YOU stand. Me being a “Reality Based Intellectualist” shouldn’t surprise anyone.

Silly Fact found on the Web:
The combination “ough” can be pronounced in nine different
ways. The following sentence contains them all “A rough-coated,
dough-faced, thoughtful ploughman strode through the streets of Scarborough; after falling into a slough, he coughed and hiccoughed.”
