Fry's Friday

Still on the subject of routines, the baker is kind enough each morning to bring in the paper and to leave the sports and the business page up on the front counter. Most days, we don't have too much time to look at them, but it is nice to have them to be able to scan the headlines or check the scores when there is a break in the day. Friday is always a bonus day because the paper includes the Fry's circular ad which is one section that almost the entire staff enjoys. Perhaps it is a guy thing, but there is something fun about looking at all of the lasted technology and toys.

The Yogurt Flavors: Chocolate Decadence, World Class Vanilla, Toffee Coffee, Butter Pecan, Boysenberry and Vanilla Malt.

Fun Fact Friday: Mitsugora Bando VIII, a famous Japanese Kabuki actor and "Living National Treasure," died in 1975 from eating fish. Mitsugora Bando VIII had a weakness for chiri-a gourmet dish made of toxic blowfish fillets stewed with blowfish livers, skin, and intestines. After consuming his fourth bowl of the delicacy, which imparts a definite "high," at a Kyoto restaurant, the famed Kabuki actor abruptly died. Every year, the Japanese consume 20,000 tons of blowfish, paying as much as $500 at special restaurants-despite knowing that 70-100 people die each year from eating it. (This fact brought to you by the Fact or Crap calendar.)

I can't come in today because I have to work but I actually know the trivia without looking it up!

Also, in celebration of Joss's birthday, Browncoats from all over the world have organized big screen viewings of Serenity. Dallas will be showing Serenity tonight at the Addison Studio Movie Grill at midnight. Proceeds go to Joss's favorite charity, Equality Now.
