The end of a thrilling day
Well, this was a thrilling day, wasn't it, boys and girls? If Owl Meat and Voodoo Pork did not exist it would be necessary to invent them. They add, shall we say, a certain manic energy to the blog.
I asked Multimedia Editor Etc. John, who is wise beyond his shallow thoughts, if he thought they were the same person. He said,
I firmly believe they are entirely distinct people.
It bothers me very little that they may occupy the same body.
Wow. That's like a deep thought.
But now let's get down to the business at hand, which is Top Ten Tuesday, Mother's Day and Cinco de Mayo, not necessarily in that order: ...
I think I've missed the boat this year on where to take your mother on Mother's Day, unless I did a post on Places That Still Have Reservations Available for Mother's Day, which sounds like I forgot Mother's Day. Which I did. So anyone who knows (as in a restaurant owner or PR person), please post below.
Monday will be the day you tell us your favorite Mexican dishes at local restaurants because it's Cinco de Mayo.
For Top Ten, the tourist thing seems right. It's a question I get a lot this time of year so I can
make my life easier send them the link to the list.
Top Ten Places to Take Tourists (That Aren't Tourist Traps) is a tricky one. In real life, all visitors want to go to the Inner Harbor while you don't want to take them.
I know you don't want to spend a lot of time in the car, but I should include a Howard County restaurant so pete doesn't have a cow. Maybe you'd want to take your friends on a day trip to Historic Ellicott City? (Hard to figure out why a tourist would go to Columbia.)
We all know that the New York Times travel section has sent tourists to the Helmand, and faithful readers know what I think about that. (Nothing against the Helmand.) I think we can do better.
