Alvinisms 829

"The only place where success comes before work is a dictionary. "

-Vidal Sassoon (wow, are you serious!?!)

Did you know: Chop suey is not a native Chinese dish - it was invented by Chinese immigrants in California

Thought of the day: Damn!!! Promos do work! So I signed up for the Hooters Club to get 10 free wings. Today I go there after work w/ Chad expecting to just get wings and maybe some fried pickles. Lo and behold I end up up w/ a pitcher and another pint and spending $20. So much for free wings. Damn you clever marketers!

Food for thought:

Antarctica is on my bucket list. Yes, I do have a real bucket list.

-Alvinism of the Wildboyz

Alert: the 10 boneless wings for $5.99 at Hooters is not worth it. They're not like strips like you'd expect, more like 10 nuggets for $5.99. Hooters got a thumbs down on that one; trying to make a buck of someone who genuinely likes them.

Don't you love pictures of the back of people's heads?

Feed me.

Happy birthday Rochelle. Cabo, here we come!!!

He'd unravel the roll, soak it in water and then wipe. I'm good.

Everland (Paris): a single room roof top mobile luxury hotel

Everland is a hotel with only one room, including a bathroom, a king-size bed and a lounge. What makes it so different is that -because it is also an art installation- this hotel travels! The Everland has been ‘parked' in the most unsual places, like the roof-deck of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Leipzig, Germany, or the roof of Palais de Tokyo (with a spectacular view on the Eiffel Tower) in Paris.

Considering how unique a night in this hotel is, the price is not so crazy: you can get the only room and the unique view for 333 Euros during the week, 444 Euros during the weekends.
