At least not English
Lol, yeah. Even today was foggy.

What made me smile was a car that stopped and the driver who talked to me who thought that I was Swiss German. People always do. I don't know why.

And because I still managed to sing this evening, loads of work and not much time, we are busting out one piece after another.

I cannot imagine why they would think you are Swiss German?

My daughter told me that most people change into their slippers when they get to the office (she's an intern in a cool company). Perhaps you should do this beforehand?

(PS. When do I get my invite???)

Slippers? As FWP or...I am a bit thick today. Or I shall say, it must be the anesthesia. Still

Speaking of which, I have it on good authority that the trendiest thing to do at my beyond hipster alma mater is to wear those giant soft unicorn slippers. Outside. As shoes. Wowsies. Gotta start looking for a suitable pair, don't want to stick out when there.

Crispy bacon on raviolis made me smile.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I just heard on the CNN that I might be coming from a “ shit-hole” country and don’t know how to interpret it? Should I be happy and laugh (to ignore the idiotic comment/slur) or sad (taking it literally)?

You know where you come from. The geezer has most likely never been even near there.
Now you know how to feel?

Aww, thanks! It's Friday night and I'm lazy. And she said GIANT slippers so I was thinking that would be a perfect gift for a friend.

And I want chocolate chip cookies but I don't have enough butter and it's late.
