Pot Roast Fumes

My downstairs neighbours seem to be cooking up a serious pot roast this winter's eve. I can smell it through the floorboards something fierce.

Makes me want to barge in there and take a huge bite of it.

Not sure if that makes me a worse vegetarian or neighbour.

Something to ponder as I tuck into my tofu-burger.

For those with access to MySpace, here's the link to read any of my 2006 MySpace blog postings you may have missed (a wholly different blog than Ez Sez).

Lots of cool stuff to see there if you've got time to kill and an interest in this guy they call Ez.


Here's a couple of samples from that there MySpace blog trove:

Good News / Old Hat:

Good news... you are pretty much able to do anything. First step is to figure out what you want to do and then find those who can help you do it. Third step is to do it.

That's what just occurred to me.

Thought I'd share it.

If this is news to you, cool! If it's a good reminder, even better. If this sounds like old hat, wear it.

Old hats are cool.
