11:24a - Another Random Quiz

What Video Game Character Are You? I am a Pacman Ghost.I am a Pacman Ghost.

I like to hang around with friends, chatting, dancing, all that sort of thing. We don't appreciate outsiders, and do our best to discourage others approaching us. I enjoy occasionally wandering around randomly, and often find that when I do so, I get to where I wanted to be. What Video Game Character Are You?

I like this quiz, because the questions let you choose a set of answers instead of just one, and because the answer page gives you the option of cheating and choosing a different answer, like so:

What Video Game Character Are You? I am a Gauntlet Adventurer.I am a Gauntlet Adventurer.

I strive to improve my living conditions by hoarding gold, food, and sometimes keys and potions. I love adventure, fighting, and particularly winning - especially when there's a prize at stake. I occasionally get lost inside buildings and can't find the exit. I need food badly. What Video Game Character Are You?

The car wash next door to my office has awnings on the edge of the roof. Or rather, had awnings. In today's wind, they have become increasingly detached. It's a moderately impressive sight.

1:38p - Enrico's
As I mentioned before, the strongly-recommended film The Bread, My Sweet is set at Enrico's Biscotti in the Strip.

By more-or-less coincidence, on Monday we had watched The strip Show, the Rick Sebak special on the Strip District. This video included an interview with Larry Lagattuta, the owner of Enrico's.

(By the way, Enrico's has also been featured on the radio show The Splendid Table (8 minutes into this show) and by Jane and Michael Stern's Roadfood (their review).)

Anyway, I quite liked the interview with Larry on The Strip Show. Larry used to work as a computer jock (for AT&T, I believe) before he resigned to work in the strip, and his geek nature clearly shows through. Some choice quotes:

"So basically, that's my top secret plan for world domination."

"Yeah, I've got all the cool toys here."

But I also really enjoyed him talking about sharing recipes with old Italian women, with him asking "Why is this recipe special for you?" and then making it together in his shop. That seemed so special and caring to me.

I have not actually visited Enrico's yet, but I'd really like to do so.

I desire to search my journal. It seems like this should be easier than it is.
