Cheap Eats


Walking into a restaurant the other night I spotted this character. In respect for anonymity I cropped him. He struck such a resemblance to Frank Zappa that I had to do a double take.

I love the cover of the magazine with ‘Cheap Eats’, which by the way the restaurant is not. I never realized but our friend pointed out that $17.95 was kind of pricey for eggplant parmigiana. I suppose I can’t argue with that.

I wonder what article he was reading. The way he has his hand over his mouth it appears that he is astonished. Maybe he just ordered the eggplant parmigiana and is reading an article about where he can buy it for half the price.

Making Lemonade from Dental Floss


Any Zappa fans out there?

Today, after a long but highly productive and very fun work day out of the basement, I took an hour long train ride to meet Gary for a concert about 20 minutes from where we live. 

Unfamiliar train station. Unfamiliar venue. Lost for 45 minutes in a 10 mile radius. Sounds fun right?

Luckily, I was too exhausted to get cranky and stayed calm.

We got to the show 45 minutes late. 

There was one seat.

After 20 minutes, the ushers determine there was a broken seat in the row. Not our problem? Wrong. Printed on the ticket it says, “no seating after the show begins”.

So we sat in the back. And it was fine. The music was great and the venue fantastic. The Ed Palermo Orchestra is a must see for Zappa fans. And even if you are not, his big band arrangements of Zappa music is a real treat.

Moving to Montana soon, gonna to be a dental floss tycoon…
