Free pastries, esteemed lords, and... Justin Bieber?

10:40 PM 0 Comments A+ a-

I am starting to notice that almost all my posts so far have something to do with food. This time, it's free food.

Last night, my mom and I had dinner at our local Corner Bakery Cafe.  I like that place a lot.  Nice ambiance, friendly staff, good food.  And it's one of the very few sit-downs in my "walking distance" area.  They close at 9PM and when you're still there around that time, say 15 minutes before closing, they'll offer you pastries on the house!

I had this bad boy for breakfast today.  It was still good, being a day old and all.  I had cheese ravioli at Corner Bakery and my mom had grilled cheese and tomato basil soup.  I think I'll have the tomato basil soup in a bread bowl next time.  I loved it.  Of course, I'll drop in around closing time for the free bagels and whatnot.  ^^,

It was a rather Murphy's Law day at work today.  Someone was trying to hack my AIM so I changed the password.  Upon doing that, it stopped working all together.  So I uninstalled the old version and downloaded the new version.  It looked pretty but it didn't have emoticons.  Pfft.  I miss my SquareFaces.  I'll play with it more tomorrow and hopefully, I can customize it more.

Also, I'm getting more and more irritated by Google Translate English.  The nature of my job requires me to answer e-mails from all over the world, most of them are from non-English-speaking countries.  I should be used to it already but some messages are just too funny to take seriously.  At the risk of sounding like a complete elitist grammar nazi ass, I bring you these:
  • "I WANNA MY ITEM!  WHERE IS HE?"  (HE, I am assuming, should be IT.)
  • "Esteemed Lords, I cannot leave the qualifications."  (Esteemed lords.)
  • "I have received the glasses. TQ!"  (TQ is 'thank you', apparently.)
Oh there are so many.  It's pretty brain-melting.  I mean, I don't mind if you send me a message in Portuguese, Spanish, Cyrillic, Swedish... whatever.  I'll translate them myself.  Sure, it's pretty much the same thing, but I think it's not going to be as funny as this greeting me for every e-mail.  It's all in the perception, you know what I mean? 

Speaking of funny things:


Hailey Jane.  She's four and she has a message for all of you...

Lagot ka kay Justin Bieber!  Hindi bading si Justin Bieber!  alsjfjgfjgfkgsnal;sf;d

Oh boy, just imagine on this little girl's 18th birthday party, her mom shows everyone this video for the "memories" bit.  XD  Laughtrip!

So I guess "Baby" by Le Biebz is the song of the day.

Flying kisses,
