Hey you, google this

Monday, November 28, 2005

So I met a bunch of wonderful people while I was away last week. And a few weirdos. Scientists and academics can be that way. Let me describe just one for you. Lunch on Thursday. Random seating at the hotel and so I am stuck next to a random guy. Turns out he works for the B.C. Department of the Environment. His specialty is goats. I hear all about them over lunch. Lucky me. Then he asks if I have a digital camera with me. I do (of course!;). Can you please take a picture of the dessert and mail it to me? Huh? Well, we have this thing at work whenever we go away, we take picture of the food at the lunch breaks...it's a running joke to see who is getting the best food. Uh yeah, o.k. So I do. Here it is.
Chocolate mousse. You give me your business card. I promptly lose it. You know, you can just image google "yummy dessert" and your colleagues will never know. Oh really? Well, if you do, perhaps you will find the authentic one. Right here. On my blog. And if you do, you will also now know that I found you to be incredibly weird. Eating an unpeeled huge honking carrot in the hotel foyer. What's up with that??? Man, I think you've been spending too much time out in the field with your goats.

    Very, very FUNNY. I hope that freak reads this. What's the deal with the vegie eating in public? LOL!

    The dessert looks good though.

    Mmmmmmmmmm chocolate mousse. It's a wonder you didn't fall asleep listening to him!

    hey let a man chew over his carrot!
    nice dessert. Cathy, he just wanted to know your email dear. What a sad excuse though! :)

    MomyBlogR;
    Wouldn't it be hilarious if he did!
    Eating raw carrots in public is not weird; but a huge large one in his hand that wasn't even peeled at all...in the lobby of the hotel?!

    Michelle;
    Fortunately there was a lunch speaker and she was very interesting, otherwise I might have!

    Chloe;
    The thought hadn't occured to me. Silly goat man. Somehow I think he really did just want the picture of the dessert.
