Ridiculous day

March 29, 2005

For the second night in a row I’m just too bushed to type anything worthwhile; it was a ridiculous day.  It started out with attending a seminar in which I spent two and a half hours listening to a lawyer from New York talk about discrimination law. 

I’ll leave you to speculate how much I enjoyed the experience – especially since the chairs in that room seem to be from the catalog of the Marquis deSade School of Furniture Design. 

But afterward several of us went to Ming’s restaurant in Bloomington (next to Hooter’s, which serves mainly as a prominent landmark for giving directions to Ming’s.)  This is the best buffet in town – I had delicious baked salmon, crisp vegetables of excellent quality, a piece of pie and a Pepsi for $8. 

Then in the afternoon I worked on a new Windows XP office build, which is a lot of little details.  It’s very important to me to get those right, since they get cloned to multiple units.  If I make a mistake, everyone gets to suffer with an exact copy of it.  Whee!

    You have to ask yourself the question:  “Is this good for the company”?

    Ming’s sucks!  They gave me (without my asking) the Sr. citizen discount, which is available to those 60 and over.  And they did it IN FRONT of my parents and my 14-year-old daughter!  Since my dad was paying, what could I say?  But if I WERE to go back (which I won’t), I’d insist on paying full boat. 

    I guess to those young Asian waitresses, we caucasians all look the same.
