Fixing A Hole

2007-09-05 - 11:50 a.m.

Woke up at 11am feeling VERY strange. Something was different.

I took an inventory - heartbeat okay, all fingers and toes working, hair hadn't fallen, everything seemed to be in place and functional.

But something had changed.

That feeling persisted as I grabbed a soda and fired up the computer. As the system booted up, I finally figured out what was different.

I was COMFORTABLE. I wasn't bathed in sweat. I didn't smell like a goat.

Then I saw my desktop weather thingie. The outside temperature was 79 degrees.

That's a full twenty degrees LOWER than the same time over the last couple weeks.

Now, if it'll only STAY this way for awhile...


So yeah, I did get a chance to talk to a Denny's rep about my experience last Friday night/Saturday morning.

We talked for about fifteen minutes, me exchanging information and him responding with the location manager's answers. Robert was very apologetic and promised an investigation...which is fine and proper.

And this hasn't put me off Denny's completely. I'll still patronize their locations, because the food is good (I don't think I've ever had anything at any Denny's that has been completely inedible and needed to be sent back) and the prices are reasonable.

I just won't patronize that particular location.


Brooke McEldowney, author of Pibgorn and 9 Chickweed Lane (link icons to your left) shifts into what I believe is iambic pentameter (although I'm not sure - I'm not an expert) and inflicts some poetry upon his blog.

Don't forget the chicken broth.


Well, I have a few things to do before work.

And I can be comfortable whilst doing them.


Be seeing you.

Glad to hear you are finally getting some reprieve from the heat, Dave. I find those kind of temperatures unbearable too.

I feel your pain, Dave. We're getting 90's up here, which isn't horrible ... unless you're trying to sleep at 3PM (which my new schedule now requires). --- And the only time I had something sub-par at Denny's was back in the 80's, when I asked for a slice of cheesecake and was served a piece of Philadelphia Cream Cheese.

Bob - re cheesecake delivery...

...ummm, yuck!
