Good morning, friends, and welcome! Take your coats off … oh … you say you’re not wearing coats? That’s good … that’s good … it’s 64°, so no need for shoes … er, um … coats. Sorry if I’m a bit addled this morning … sleepy 💤💤💤
Well, it’s officially spring fall now, and for the first time I can remember, the weather turned fall-like on the exact date fall began, Saturday. Of course, it rained all day, but what the heck … into each life a little rain must fall, right? Did you all have a wonderful autumnal weekend? And now, here we are back ‘round to Monday again. It’s gonna be a roller-coaster week, so let’s try to start out with a smile, or maybe even a chuckle, shall we?
I let Jolly help with the treats today, so grab a plate and a cup of coffee or tea …
For the love of sushi …
You know those ‘all-you-can-eat’ places, usually buffet restaurants? I used to date a guy who said it was a waste to take me to one, for I can eat only limited amounts at a time, and he claimed he never got his money’s worth if he took me to an all-you-can-eatery. But German triathlete Jaroslav Bobrowski knows how to get his money’s worth. A week or so ago, Mr. Bobrowski went to eat at Running Sushi, a restaurant in Landshut, Bavaria. Now, I don’t eat sushi, but this must have been some awesome sushi, for Mr. Bobrowski ate … and ate … and then he ate some more. In just a few minutes, it is said, Jarolslav Bobrowski had put away 100 plates of sushi! Now, according to what I have read, the average sushi plate has only 3 pieces of sushi, and the owner of the Running Sushi says that the average patron consumes 20 plates … well, they don’t consume the actual plate, but rather the sushi that is on the plate. Even with only 3 pieces per plate, 20 plates sounds like an awful lot to me, but what do I know? Most people eat more than I, but still … 60 pieces for the average diner and 300 pieces for Mr. Bobrowski? Blech. 🤢
Since during all that munching, he drank only one glass of ice tea, the restaurant lost a good bit on his visit, and thus he is now banned from the Running Sushi, according to owner Tan Le.
“I want to win customers and not offend any guests. But … we only earn money on the drinks and he only consumed one tea the whole evening.”The meal cost Bobrowski €15.90, or $18.70 USD. He has since found another sushi restaurant nearby, China City. Perhaps somebody should warn them?
From the journals of … WHY?
Here’s one I’ve never seen before … a horse-drawn SUV (sport utility vehicle). It happened last week in the Ballyfermot area of Dublin, Ireland, when people were stunned to see this …
The quality of the video is poor, but you’ll still get a kick out of it. Again, though, I must ask: Why?
Drat! I missed the chance …
A month or so ago, a dear friend insisted that I buy a new pair of shoes. For the record, I own precisely two pair: one pair of hiking boots, and one pair of tennis shoes. It is all I need. I prefer barefoot anyway. But when I let slip that my tennis shoes were holey and held together with duct tape, this friend nagged until I bought a new pair. Okay, I’m glad I did, for my feet seem to stay dryer on days that I go puddle-jumping. But I should never have thrown the old ones away!!! Just look what Nordstrom is selling …Yes, folks, this is what they are selling on their website and get this … the price … $530!!! Yes, you heard me right. If I still had my old ones, I could make enough to pay for the new ones and feed my family for a whole month!!! Obviously, since it says “sold out”, people bought these shoes. For $530!!! One can only conclude that there must be a heck of a lot of people out there with more money than brains!
The company came into a bit of criticism, but managed to answer it with a b.s. answer …I’m not sure whether to laugh, growl or cry!
Look what the cat dragged in …
Given the neighborhood I live in, I could very well see this happening, but fortunately after an accident years ago involving our cat Tofu and a car and the loss of a leg, ours are all indoor cats.
It happened in Bristol, England, last Monday when a family’s cat came home carrying a bag. On further inspection, it was found that the bag contained several smaller wrapped parcels of drugs!Police were called and came to take the drugs away, commending the cat for a job well done. “Forget police dogs, we should start training up cats,” one officer joked.
Okay, folks, Jolly and I are tired, so it’s time for us all to get up and do whatever it is we do on Mondays. I hope you enjoyed this humorous start to the week, for I think it’s destined to be another whirlwind news week and we needed to at least start out on the right foot. Remember to share those lovely smiles you’re wearing, for we all feel better if somebody smiles at us. Unless we’re doing something we shouldn’t be, then we feel guilty. Keep safe and have a great week! Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa & Jolly!
