The man is simply brilliant

How can he be simple and brilliant at the same time? I don't know, but he pulls it off.

From Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert:

When I see news stories about people all over the world who are
experiencing hardships, I worry about them, and I rack my brain
wondering how I can make a difference. So I decided to start my own
blog. That way I won’t have time to think about other people.

People who are trying to decide whether to create a blog or not go
through a thought process much like this:

1. The world sure needs more of ME.
2. Maybe I’ll shout more often so that people nearby can experience
the joy of knowing my thoughts.
3. No, wait, shouting looks too crazy.
4. I know – I’ll write down my daily thoughts and badger people to read them.
5. If only there was a description for this process that doesn’t
involve the words egomaniac or unnecessary.
6. What? It’s called a blog? I’m there!

The blogger’s philosophy goes something like this:

Everything that I think about is more fascinating than the crap in your head.

The beauty of blogging, as compared to writing a book, is that no
editor will be interfering with my random spelling and grammar, my
complete disregard for the facts, and my wandering sentences that
seem to go on and on and never end so that you feel like you need to
take a breath and clear your head before you can even consider making
it to the end of the sentence that probably didn’t need to be written
anyhoo.

If that doesn’t inspire you to read my blog, I don’t know what will.

That is hilarious. True, but still hilarious.

I wasn't aware of another Ted's. I had no idea there were 2, let alone three. The one on North May is pretty close to my house, but there is always a line. Fabulous food being the main reason. I love their food, too.
