Big secret project

Hey everyone!
Brax's computer is still over. (Hey Topher, FIX BRAX'S COMPUTER ALREADY, WILL YOU? I bet right now, as Topher is reading this, he is dicking around on the internet, so he should take an hour off from that and fix Brax's computer so this blog can stop being a monologue. I can't handle the pressure.)

FACT: I have not forgotten how to wait tables. It's kind of like riding a bike. Although I did forget how to cope with difficult customers. Sometimes you can make them happy, and sometimes you can pretty much rule out making them happy. You just have to do your best. (Some people go to restaurants when what they really want is a personal chef. For these people, you can do nothing. It is a hard, long road for them, to get rich enough to have a personal chef, and until that day they will never like any food they ever eat, because restaurants are jerks and have these "menu" things with a prescriptive dining agenda.)

Anyway, for the most part I am enjoying my return to serving. The money is good, and I love food and wine and generally I am pretty good at talking to people. You work your butt off, and at the end of the night you have a pocket full of cash and you get a beer. It is a lot more fun than sitting at a desk, I can tell you that.

I am only serving 2 nights a week, which is fine, because it gives me time to work on writing and designing and a new **********BIG SECRET PROJECT*********** that Brax and I are working on, to be unveiled in August. Big secret project! I can tell you this much: It involves yarn. Yarn will be a crucial part of this.

get excited!!
