I hate internet cafes!!!
« on: December 16, 2007, 05:06:20 AM »
I moved to a new flat and still don't have internet access (nor Sky)!  I'm at an internet cafe and hate it.  Some loud lady is behind me, telling the entire world her business.  WE DON'T CARE WHO YOU TOOK HOME LAST NIGHT, NOR HOW DRUNK YOU WERE.

And the music is atrocious.  Now playing Avril Lasagna (or whatever that supposedly French-Canadian "skater chick" is named), previously it was Umbrella.  Before that 98 Degrees.  Before that Stop me/Mark Ronson (OK that one was OK).

aaarrrgggggg!

I've never had an internet cafe experience but seems like annoyance & aggrevation, exTexan. Torturous.
I have in mind it's like having to use a public laundermat after years of having a washer/dryer set-up at home.
Hoping you get connected soon and hope you enjoy the new flat, as well, Sweetie.

Cliff, you can always come home. Open up a good Texas BBQ in Ohio and live happily ever after.  :D I'm I just thinking of myself? You bet. I miss Texas BBQ. I just miss Texas food all together. You can keep the grits though.  ;)

Old Carolina BBQ moved into our area in OH and boy am I happy to have some REAL bbq here finally, just like I used to eat in NC. Grits?? You may not like them but at least I don't have to explain to you what they are. These yankees just don't understand bbq or grits.  LOL

LOL.  I used to miss the food too, but it's slowly starting to become a distant memory.  Well except for cornbread, which I make my mom ship to me every 3 months or so.  I have to have cornbread every now and then!

I don't know why everyone hates grits.  I think it's pretty nice.  Especially with a bit butter and sugar.  Yum!!!!!! 

But I also like chitlins (sp?) as well.  So there you go...

Hey Cliff,

I don't have much experience with internet cafes, but I do like grits.

How in the world do you eat chitlins? EEEP!

HUGS,

hey cliff.

Grits are OK.  Taste like cream o wheat to me.  I don't mind them. But I'll never touch chitlins.  No way. 

Why are you moving?  Too many mice?  Where are you moving to?  Are you going to stay in the same neighborhood?  It's a pretty hoity toity place you have now, isn't it?

I hate moving.  Especially so close to the holidays.   good luck....and

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Grits need butter and SALT. Not sugar  ;), and NOT milk  :o (like my crazy sister-in-law forces on her poor children). Red-eye gravy can also go with the grits.

Chitlins stink too much for me, but I love collard greens with a dash of vinegar on them. Oh, and since someone mentioned cornbread, Yankees don't know about good old cornbread dressing either, the kind you can cut a chunk of and carry around - my friends here all eat that wet "stuffing".

Dear Cliff,

I'm terribly sorry to hear about your bad experience at the internet cafe.  Now talking about southern food...I have to admit I was just like Joe Pesci in My Cousin Vinny when I moved to NC..."what's a grit?"...but I learned...lol.
Hope you are doing well aside from your Internet connectivity issues, and btw...love the new avatar, looking good mister, really good  :-*
