Does anyone else think that Woozy's new icon looks like Janet Reno making out with a Goldfish while some old dude watches?

Or is it just me? Just a thought.

Happy Birthday IronS!!!

Definately just you! Janet Reno! Sheesh, my lovely model will be very insulted.

It's a close-up of this image which is based on a gallery opening I attended two years ago.

Easy on there Kimosabe.

Bears don't have the keenest of eyesight, not to mention the icon's the size of a friggin' postage stamp. From cursury examination, that is how it appeared. No harm.

Hey! Blame GC and their 64 pixel limit.

Yeah, but careful what you say 'bout my sister! Well, okay, she's not my sister but I can wish she was can't I?

Oh remember the one time when... for just a short time... I exceeded the 64 pixel limit in all my Haydee gloriousness. That was great. You were all jealous. Don't deny it.

It really wasn't testicular fortitude. It was more so a combination of technological ignorance and basic human stupidity. I actually thought I was in really big trouble. HD... "high def"? OR "Haydee demonstrativeness"

Is that a word? Can you add "ness" to the end of demonstrative to make it a noun?... oh well, I just did, because I have testicular fortitude!

I thought that woman was smiling while hitting a cranky old guy on the back of his head with a fantail goldfish, trying to knock a smile out of him or something ("smile, dammit, smile!").

If you look further in the background, it looks to be another dude looking on, with arms folded no less.

Jeez, if you want to know what it is see the danged picture!

The other dude is the same guy. Ya see, he's a guy from a painting. And the gal is the model for the gal in the other painting. And her painted self is playing the piano. And the guy in the painting is in the painting with the two folks standing in front of the painting of the gal. And in the paining she's staring at a fish.

Geez, was that so hard to figure out?
===
So, I'm back from New York. Twas nice but sheesh, my sister absolutely talked about nothing else but how awful her ex-husband is, how awful her fiance's ex-wife is. How utterly terrific a dancer her daughter is (which she is), and how great New York is and how insulting it was that I would only agreed with her about everything and not respond with an enthusiastic confession abut how deluded Californians are for trying to convince themselves that California doesn't suck and that we all are angry at her for being the only person on the planet with the sense to resist brain-washing by moving to New York but we refuse to admit it. Sheesh. Maybe if I stayed one day less...

Oh, I had a wonderful walk at sunset last night down Riverside park and the Hudson River was gorgeous. It was a beautiful Spring day and the air was clean. I asked if people sailed on the Hudson. My sister said they do. I said I was surprised there were no boats on the river, it being such a beautiful day. She peered at me and said "Don't you thing it's quite gusty". I involuntarily snorted a guffaw because the wind couldn't have been more than 12 miles and hour. She was *sooooo* pissed! I then made my favorite crack about East Coast sailers; "protected on the lee of the continent." She was not amused. I figured if she could be offended because I described "Gray's Papaya" hot dogs as "These are really good!" instead of "These *are* the best hot dogs I've ever had" (they weren't... but sheesh! They were effin' *hot dogs*! How freaking excited can I get about a hot dog even if it *were* the best I've ever had? You can't make a silk purse out of sow's ear, {although I suppose you could make a hot dog or two}, and even the best hot dog in the world can be better than an average portugese sausage, or kalua pork... or the saimin at the dairy queen on the last town on the North Shore of the Big Island of Hawaii... mmmmm, ... but I digress). I figure it was only fair, I could display my own chauvinistic pride. She then described the Hudson River as being comparable to the fjords of Norway. For all I know they are (but I doubt it).
Ooh, then we saw my darling niece play violin at Symphony Space (she's a very good violinist but my sister, a former dancer, is biased toward dance; She used to be very good at Math and fascinated by science a few years ago but now not at all. I mentioned a wan secret desire that someone else in my family might carry the math torch to which my future brother-in-law stated authoritatively and objectively "but Math is boring" ... and then we paid $10 each to sit in hard fold out chairs to watch 50 ten year olds stumble and flub ballet excercises.... but I continue to disgress, and rather bitterly at that) and we had some excellent Peruvian food. (I had Aji de Gallina. It was almost as good as Mi Lindo Peru and only twice as expensive. (Although Mi Lindo doesn't have Cuba Libres I must confess.))

This place has been on my to go list for a while, is it as good as everyone says it is?

I've never heard anyone say anything about it. It's really good though-- A favorite of the now defunct "Defenders of lunch". I always thought it was our private find. The salvadorean place next door is really good too.

There's a couple of restaurants along that part of Mission St. that have gotten some really good reviews in the Guardian and SF Weekly. Some are cheap, some are foofy, but all are good (foodwise).

Here's a couple:

Emmy's Spaghetti Shack (Trendy urban chic restaurant)
Moki (sushi place)
Angkor Borei (Cambodian)
Jasmine Tea House (Chinese)

And a couple more on Cortland that I can't remember at the moment.

Jasmine Tea House is really good - both to eat in and (as I did twice while I was sick last week) to order for delivery. The food is very fresh and tasty. They also have some "faux chicken" dishes that are pretty good - I ordered a spicy meatless chicken dish that was yummola. They even serve Ostrich! (Not that I want it myself, mind you, but just in case you're into eating big bird.)

I looked at their menu, the only meatless chicken dish they had was the "Happy Buddha". However, it wasn't spicy (didn't have a chilli pepper icon next to it). Unless you ordered it that way.
