Sunday fun day

* Once again, I've been stealing (as always I'll give it back if she asks me to) from Gran, who by the way is having a lot of fun with her new camera. Check out her pictures of Seattle and the snow they have there. Anyway she had this link for checking the color of your rainbow, and I just had to share it here because I liked what it said about me.

Your rainbow is slightly shaded violet.


What is says about you: You are a creative person. You appreciate beauty and craftsmanship. You are patient and will keep trying to understand something until you've mastered it.

Find the colors of your rainbow at spacefem.com.

(For some reason, the HTML isn't working to show the colors of the rainbow. But if you try it, you'll get to see the colors of your own rainbow as well as the nice things it says about you.)

* Post Script to yesterday's American Deli sign post: On the wall behind the counter, they had another sign. Unfortunately I didn't see it before I ordered, or else I would have rethought my sense that this was going to be a fast food experience:
NO MONEY BACK
We won't give money back once you order and pay and we start to fix your food. So thank you for not asking.
No. I didn't ask. The cook looked mean.

  1. Gosh, mine came out a bit dull. Now I have to think about that:-)
    No money back? You are a wuzz, grandpa (the last sentence on the quiz says about me: You may meet people who are afraid of you – there).

  2. You should go to a less passive agressive deli.

  3. I am not a wuzz, Fida. I got my gyro and walked out with all ten of my fingers, thank you. :0)

    KMcJ, you may have a point there.

  5. Grandpa, you can steal from me anytime. I'm honored!

    That deli reminds me of the soup Nazi from Seinfeld.

  7. Hey, that was fun -- I must have lied about something though because I sounded a lot nicer than I am!

  8. Thanks, Gran. I thought the same thing about the soup Nazi.

    You keep posting good stuff to steal. Plus good pictures with your new camera. Good work.

  9. I was thinking about the soup nazi from Seinfeld as well!

    I don't even try to reason with mean-looking cooks!

  10. I'm with KMcJ: those people are angry, man....

    Don't worry about Fida, she's just stretching her rainbow muscle....

  12. Braja, I haven't laughed like that all day long. You just improved my heart health immeasurably. Thank yoo, Yogi.

  13. Simplicity, I was in the food service business a long time. The first thing you learn is you don't mess with mean looking chefs. (cooks--you can learn how to work around. Just be sure they're not going to be your chef someday.)

  14. No, Cloudia. Of all places it was Atlanta! They don't know what "Aloha" means here.

  15. Hey! I was just cruising around over here, and noticed I'm your spotlight post! Thanks!

  16. Hey Grandpa: You're welcome :) I got a laugh outta your sign post (ha! get it?! ok ok), so we're even...

  17. That sentence concerns me about the cooking. How was it? I wouldn't have ordered the fish.

    Oh yes! The Soup Nazi! That's it.

  18. No problem, Jen. I enjoyed the post. :0)

    MAria, I wish I'd talked to you first before I created the tag. I like that -- Sassy Signs.

    Sign post, Braja? Ok. I smiled.

    Actually, Joy, I bought a gyro. It was good. :0)

  19. I commented on today's post. Then scrolled down and read a few more, then clicked & read your poem "Getting On." (It is amazing, by the way. You really do have a gift. I am glad I found your blog by clicking on your "follower" icon on That Damn Expat's blog. I love blogs that are well-written and tell interesting stories.)

    So then I was playing with your black box widget and decided to add it to my blog, and I signed in over there to find that you are quick -- you already clicked to "follow" my blog! I guess we have a mutual admiration society going here... =)

    Glad to meet you! And thanks for stopping by my blog today, too.

  20. Thank you LegalMist. Both of your blogs are really interesting. I definitely plan to spend more time there.
