This is a photo of a restaurant by my house. The green sign reads "LIVE TACO MAKER." Now, that's all fine and dandy, but honesty, given that the place serves tacos, I would have assumed they had a live taco maker. So I'm not that impressed. Now, if they employed a robotic taco maker, that might be sign worthy, but given that they don't, I think a sign is unnecessary. (Obviously a zombie taco maker would warrant a sign as well.)

I Got EVICTED From Town Square, Las Vegas. It's a Wonderful Place to Shop, but Rough Place to Live...
Okay, I wasn't REALLY evicted from Town Square...but I did get my first cover story in Las Vegas Weekly. I'm really proud of this, 1) cause I think the piece came out well (thanks to all who helped, by the way! lots and lots of you on this one...), and 2) cause Las Vegas Weekly is such an awesome publication. Its the only magazine that I read nearly front to back/look forward to reading every week. (And I was reading it several months before I started writing for it.) So, yeah, it feels cool to be part of something bigger than yourself that you're really proud of. (Hmmm....I think the last time I got this feeling was in Negotiations class, when we had this team assignment, and my team really, really kicked ass....the Prof was almost embarrassed for the other team...
