My blog is getting so many hits from people searching for "whalfin" that it's ridiculous. There is a real hunger for reliable whalfin information on the net. I want to see a picture but I don't think there is one anywhere.
Inspiration's not really striking me today. If anyone wants to get into an intelligent discussion for a friday http://sacramento.craigslist.org/rnr/70784235.html, Scott pointed this CL idiocy out to me. Speaking of idiots, the conversation I overheard at Nishiki yesterday really shook my faith in humantiy. I was waiting for Grace in the front area for a few minutes. First, I took in the general ever-present sexism typical of the sushi places where hotties congregate (sexist or sexy? what's the difference). There was the teenage hostess who was hobbling around on high heels that were obviously killing her and who was so encumbered by constricting clothing and hair artfully arranged over one of her eyes that she could barely move at all and obviously couldn't really see where she was going. There were the ruddy-faced rich dudes with paunches and ugly Polo shirts trying to impress the schmoozy maitre'd with their stories of hundreds spent on front row tickets to sports events. But the worst convo came after we were seated next to two real-estate dudes. Here are two choice quotes:
"You know, she's really perfect. Thick blond hair, full lips, hourglass figure, but she has the I.Q. of Snoopy. Not that that really matters, but it might be embarassing because everyone in my family has gone to college".
Dude 1: Have you seen any of those Lord of the Rings movies?
Dude 2: Nah, not interested, if there's no real-estate angle in it, I couldn't care less.
Wow, what an interesting guy. He must be a lot of fun at parties. But he's really limiting himself as far as the selection of movies he might want to see. The only movie I can think of with a real-estate angle off the top of my head is "Glengarry Glen Ross". I guess "Chinatown" kinda has a real-estate angle, too. Well, those are both really good movies, so maybe he's onto something here.
