Delicate Blossom & Chef Ed:  You guys really make it hard for me to eat my instant ramen while looking at these fuud pix!

Delicate Blossom:  Very nice pix of fuud.  Too bad you weren't able to get "Mars" with the "Milky Way"!

Wine Gurl:  Yes, do have the valet park your car.  Went there when it was Zen and the parking is very tight.  Do not recommend bringing your Escalade or Dodge Ram.  I can't remember where we parked when Frank DeLima was packing them in at the Red Noodle???

Reply

Delicate Blossom:  Went there shortly after they opened.  Fuud was guud but very few peeps for lunch.  They don't advertise much and rely on word of mouth.  It's kind of a hidden gem but for that neighborhood, prices may be a bit high.  Not too many students can afford some of their stuff as it is near the UH.  You're right, parking is pretty generous until your followers "slam" the place after reading this post!  LOL

MC:  Right on!  Much of the social media stuff is about the individual.  Dale Carnegie said that the 2 main drivers that humans have in doing anything is: 1.  The need for sex;  2.  The need to feel important.  I guess the ice bucket is all about #2, because I know that a bucket of ice water dumped on you inhibits #1!

MC:  It takes talent to write and act to make a film successful.  It seems a lot of US films are so formulaic just to punch out some dough for the company.  Even the actors are really no more than merely prostituting themselves...slam bam thank you ma'am!  They need the dough just like the rest of us and lower their standards and price accordingly just to make it through the day.

Delicate Blossom:  You are usually quite good at including prices of dishes...is there a reason for not including them here?  Maybe the LASIK wasn't good enough to see the small print of a price on the menu.  LOL.  I'm with turkfontaine, some things are better deconstructed in our stomachs than before we put it in our mouths.

Delicate Blossom:  I think pix #15 should be captioned as "rack of lamb" vice "lamb chops" which is a different cut.  The next pix is really not how true rack lovers would want it done.  Agree that it should have more pink...but fuud does luuk guud.  Fuud Reminds One Life Is Cool.

MC:  Spot on!  It seems like many of the comic geniuses have such huge chains...some are self inflicted others of a more mental nature.  Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor, Chris Farley, John Belushi, Rap Reiplinger, Flip Wilson, Jonathan Winters, etc.  all were on the edge of a more bedeviled world it seems.  But I do disagree on including Sandler, Carrey, and Ferrell in such august company, these guys are not even in the same league as Williams!

Chef Ed:  Sorry, I did not realize how debilitating your injury was, as I wondered why you were in the photo profession.  There is a saying that "Those who can, do, and those who can't, teach".  You your case it seems like you "can't" due to physical limitation more than anything but your passion and desire is still there.  I know you do work for Highway Inn trying to get back in the groove.  In more ways than one I guess, you still "knead the dough", so I say go for it.  I think with your experience, you will attract more than enough interns who can do the physical stuff for you and actualize your creativity.  Let us know what is happening and will come out to support you!

MC:  Whoa! a political diatribe from our film critic...I don't know about getting rid of the World's oldest profession.  However, your point is well taken as I too try to focus on the road.  But it is like an accident on the side of the road, everyone has to rubber neck and thus slow traffic.  Can you imagine sign waving at the rail stations!?  Wait!  maybe everyone will be using rail and there will be no car traffic and our roads will be empty, ergo, no need for sign waving.  Nah, only in the movies, some guys will attach their signs to helium filled balloons and raise them next to the elevated rail routes.

Delicate Blossom:  This marketing and PR gig is one of the "toughest" sales jobs around.  There are so many intangibles and many do not affect the bottom line of organizations.  The metrics are what one would call "squisshy" at best.  This is like selling air...one never really knows how much is enough.  Maybe that's why the award is an Anvil, cause you get so beat up trying and your head gets hard!
