Late night chicken exchange

Posted by chris on May 17th, 2011 add a comment

Around midnight on Twitter…

  • Dorinda: Holy god. This herbed, butter-roasted chicken would make anorexic vegetarians say, “Well, just for tonight.”
  • Will: that sounds like it might be pretty good.
  • Dorinda: @Will: Hey, uh… chicken?
  • Chris: [butting in] What’s a man gotta do to get a damn chicken invite?
  • Dorinda: Well, muh’fuqqr, the squeaky complainer gets the lube. Or something. Whatevs. Come over.
  • Chris: I will only eat chickens that were cooked with me in mind. Second-hand chicken? Who you thank this is?
  • Dorinda: Oh, believe me, when I’m trussing this chicken and shoving it into a hot, confined oven, I’m thinking of you.

The other office

Posted by chris on Feb 23rd, 2011 2 comments


Working at Cloud Seven Cafe in northwest Portland, OR (again)

My buddy Will just told me he spent $400 at Cloud Seven Cafe last year, according to his accounting at Mint. (It should be noted that Cloud Seven didn’t even exist until July 2010.) I’ve had the good sense to always pay with cash so I can live in blissful, untracked ignorance. I’m off the grid, baby.

Considering I’m there with him all the time, I don’t know if I should be more worried about the amount of money I’m spending or the amount of caffeine I’m consuming. Obviously at the end of this road is a bleak future as a penniless junkie who wanders the streets, disheveled and in disarray, holding a coffee mug that’s long been fused to my shaking fingers.

So anyway, they make good coffee.

Some awesome

Posted by chris on Jan 11th, 2011 1 comment

The other night, I got a call from my friend Corey, inviting me to Will’s to join them and “cook a bunch of awesome shit.” So Corey, Courtenay and I walked over to Will’s and we cooked a bunch of awesome shit.

For those who aren’t familiar with the official definition, “awesome shit” refers to: wild Alaskan king salmon, shrimp and the not pictured: kale, asparagus, mashed potatoes, lamb and artichoke pesto.

A sign of things to come

Photo by Will Duncan, who was thoroughly unimpressed & unsatisfied with the shot from my iPhone camera

I printed some helpful tips for our fridge at ENTP. Because we like cold drinks on hot days. And in the words of wise investor Warren Buffet, “Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”

But wait — there’s more! Earlier this year, I made a sign to remind people to take their leftovers home. It hangs on our office door — the last thing you see before you leave.

No need to thank me. Please, keep your seats. Women, refrain from throwing underpants on the stage. I’m just a man trying to help. Okay, maybe I’ll take just one pair of underpants.
