tempted by the blog of a brotha'

you know that song that goes "tempted by the fruit of another"...? for the longest time i thought it was "tempted by the fruit of a brotha'"... and it was about black dudes getting with white chicks - which totally offends me...jk, lol, rotflmao.

don't understand how coffee houses like the starbucks and the coffee beans work as hang outs and such. even though i don't like or drink coffee i can understand that other people do, but what i don't get is how people will saddle up with their laptop or a book all day. it can't take any longer than 10-15 minutes to drink a frappa-foufou-mangina-spresso and eat a muffin but these people are spending hours on end sitting on those trendy couches. don't the coffee houses get pissed that you're taking up seats for that long? i know you can't spend hours on end in a restaurant after you've finished your meal so why can you do it at the starbucks? why would you even want to??? i'd much rather be on my laptop or read at home...i don't want everyone knowing what i'm reading or what i'm writing on my laptop anyway. i don't even know how you'd concentrate, i'd be so preoccupied with people watching and judging them based on what they're reading and/or writing that i wouldn't be able to get anything done.

do we really need a "crevice" and a "crevasse" in the dictionary? they mean the same EXACT thing - crevice: a crack forming an opening; cleft; rift; fissure. crevasse: a fissure, or deep cleft, in glacial ice, the earth's surface, etc. it's not like we're eskimos and need a bunch of names for cracks in the earth like they need hundreds of names for snow. and, while we're on the subject, can we please remove "niggardly" from the dictionary? some po' white boy is gonna' get himself killed.

dave and i were walking past the hamburger hamlet the other day and we were wondering how long it would take the waiter/waitress to catch on, while taking our order, if we made a big production in regards to not being able to decide between items or kept sending the waiter back because we weren't quite ready yet. or, how hilarious would it be if we sent back our order because there was something "most definitely rotten in my hamburger." then this got me thinking, how cool it would be to start a chain of hamlet's waffle houses? i even googled it and it doesn't look like the name's been taken yet!

ba dum BLOG!!!
