Best Bad Trend

Have you noticed that not only do I barely have anything to blog about, but almost no one else is updating their blogs either?

Also . . .

Something I've been wondering is "when are we going to start seeing Superman ads?" Isn't this movie coming out this summer? There's almost no buzz going on for it, especially compared to, I don't know, Mission Impossible III which has been all over TV since the Super Bowl. There hasn't even been a Superman trailer with fighting in it yet. I don't even know what sorts of awesomeness to expect from the movie (I anticipate flying and rescuing, but I could be wrong). It's coming out in 2006, right? Not 2007?

Also . . .

You know what I can't stop thinking about? The Spaghetti Factory, and how it's delicious, and how I'd eat there right now if I could. Just look at this menu! Don't tell me it doesn't sound like the most delicious bargain in the universe! And the said thing is, I probably haven't eaten at a Spaghetti Factory for exactly three years.

We have a Spaghetti Factory right down the street, come out to Concord and we can go there instead of Sushi. It might work better for Blake and Rachel.

Mmmmm...I ate at the Spaghetti Factory yesterday! The Mizithra and Tomato sauce is to die for!

I've been wondering about the Superman film too. I mean, it's coming out in June, and X-men 3 is coming out in May, yet I haven't seen a single televised commercial for either. Just those dull posters.

When I was looking at the Barney's menu I was like: "For sure this is the kind of place that'll charge you for a tomato slice and has a per person minimum . . . but I'd go, I'd go in a second.

All you braggers with your Spaghetti Factories readily at your disposal, I don't know what to with you.

Oh yeah, X-Men 3. I had completely forgotten about that movie. Come on people, advertise! Believe in yourselves!

When you come here to visit, and I'm not here, there's a huge Spaghetti Factory down by the water. I've never been there though. It would be nice to go there for the first time with you.

Remember when we went to the Newport Beach Spaghetti Factory? That's like my main Spaghetti Factory. I've also been to the one on Sunset and the one at Trolley Square.

PS Not really going to Seattle while you're in Europe. Duh.

I don't think they have a minimum or anything. The realy perplexing thing about the place is where does all the food come from? Do they have a warehouse somewhere trucking it in by the order? It isn't a big place and with that kind of a selection I have no idea how it works.

On a related note, Edward Kienholz created a fairly disturbing instalation of the place in the 60's. (sorry this has nothing to do with the spaghetti factory)

I do remember that. That is one of my favorite memories of the Old Spaghetti Factory. Andrew was with us and Jaron and Erin. You guys took the glasses home for your regular drinking glasses.

Liz Jensen/Burgess' blog has a picture of our giant Old Spaghetti Factory.

You should still come out to Seattle someday. It would be fun.
