When you're looking for a plumber in Orlando, it's best to find a person who has a passion for the job. Someone who lives and breathes sewage and drainage. You know, the kind of guy who isn't afraid to wear a toilet plunger on his head, have someone take a picture of it, and then plaster it on the back of a truck.

As much as I hate talking politics (which is second only to chewing aluminum foil), this story got my attention.

... so it's really quite ironic that Ravenous Pig is the name of the restaurant where I ate lunch the other day. Is that not the most tacky fabulous name for an eating establishment EVER?
Prior to getting together, my "dining companion" had marked the date on his on his work calendar as follows:
1pm - Lunch with Deanne (Ravenous Pig)
So, on the morning of our date, his assistant opened his calendar, saw what he had written, and let him know she thought it was highly inappropriate for him to refer to me as such. Apparently, she hadn't heard of the place, and thought his notation was descriptive in nature, along the lines of: Kimberly (Hot Fox) or Josephine (Psychotic Dog).
The truffle fries rock, by the way.
The "Sex and the City" movie comes out Friday, May 30th, and we're getting a jump-start on it, with Orlando's "Sex and the Magic City" soiree on Thursday May 22nd at Tatame Sake Lounge on Fairbanks Ave in Winter Park.

Whether you chalk it up as "payback" or "paying it forward," I did pass along some flamingo love in the neighborhood this weekend.

Admittedly, I'm easily distracted. As a kid, I used to sit in church and count hats. Then I'd try to see if I could stack all the fingers on my one hand, perfectly straight on top of each other. Sometimes, I'd picture the congregation naked and subsequently feel awful and hope God would understand I wasn't bad, just curious. Then, I'd be so caught up in my guilt that it would lead me to start thinking about all the things I wasn't supposed to think about in church. It wasn't a very positive experience.

So, I told you how I got flocked last weekend...
(pink plastic flamingos in my lawn, that is)
Don't worry, I didn't get my feathers ruffled over it. Ha HA!
