Screw tumblr I’m on Instagram baby!

January 16, 2014

Right so before I started back blogging I got an iPhone and like countless other “sheeple” the urge to document every mundane aspect of my life overcame me.

All this to say I’m on Instagram and have been for ages now and have become quite the poster!

9.75 Things That Annoy Me

March 22, 2009

1) People who think they’re a lot smarter than they really are.
Give me a good old ‘idiot’ who knows his/her limitations than a downright jackass who thinks he/she was robbed out of the nobel lauriet.

2) People with messenger viruses who don’t realize simply changing their passwords would solve the problem!

3) People who cannot read a URL and determine when a link is safe or not.
The reason this annoys me is simple: I wanted to send a contact a link to a youtube video, to which I heard “I don’t click links” and I was like… “Is there some weird youtube virus I’m unaware of?”

4) Customer service representatives with no training!
Few things in life inspire me to rage as a CSR who needs a good back hand. Imagine going for coffee to see some… girl… on the company phone talking her personal business, I go up to her and look her full in her face, she look s at me, looks off and continues with her conversation moving out of sight. Suffice it to say I went around to face her again and racist remarks ensued, but that’s neither here nor there.

4.75) Fake people.
You know what I mean, be they persons who went to high school with you, someone from the office or just random strangers, those persons who try to be all sweet and sugary but leave that nasty artificial sweetener taste in your mouth. Saccharin.

5.75) Taxi Drivers
The reason they annoy me is that they tend to do THE most foolishness on the roads, cause several accidents but often evade being actually IN an accident. I just hate to see those taxi cones coming, I just know to get to the nearest sidewalk, wall or lamp post to protect myself.

6.75) People who feel the need to question EVERYTHING
Here’s a kicker, if I wanted your input, more than likely, it was in jest. Why then were I to say “I’m going to the gas station.” lead to a 20 minute debate on the finer points of gas stations vs. supermarkets, and gas stations vs. minimarts and corner stores? Or better yet, if you get invited to attend some event or the other and you decline as is your prerogative some nosy person is going to ask “Why not?” Grrrr… because I don’t want to. THERE! I SAID IT! HAPPY NOW?!

7.75) Twitter in general.
Up to this very moment I just go through the motions of updating my status or whatever they choose to call it but I have no real understanding of the point of it. It’s like taking having no life to new heights.

8.75) Recent articles in the Nation Newspaper
Don’t get me wrong, I am not trying to imply that I am the most gifted writer there ever was to grace to pages of the internet, however I must say that the caliber and content of the articles of late are so childish, baseless and full of nothing but sensationalism which is NOT journalism at its finest. Thumbs down.

9.75) The security firm which patrols my neighborhood.
I would like to take this opportunity to request that the owners of J.E. Security monitor the speed with which their drivers accelerate around St. James/ St. Thomas. Hearing them braking and screeching at the intersection makes me fear for the safety of the residents as it relates to being struck down, more than of being robbed!

How to Fry An Egg

Although this person is a Jamaican, I am convinced he is a protege of Barbadian ‘chef’ Peter Edey. For those of you who know who he is, you’ll understand what I mean. Bon Apetite.


Why Il Forno (Barbados) Wants Burning Down

July 17, 2008

I am sure those of you out there who are from Barbados or have visited the South Coast and dined up and down the stretch are familiar with an establishment called ‘the View.’ Famous for… um… Rihanna went partying there one night, that’s it! Anyway, because everything else about the establishment failed to be noteworthy The View closed down and the restaurant was rennovated by some Italian businessmen. Enter Il Forno- genuine Italian restaurant and pizzaria.

For a couple months I had been toying with the idea of venturing to Il Forno and see what it is they have to offer to the hungry patrons of the South Coast and I finally made it there this week.

Reasons for the burning:

  1. While waiting to be seated no one took notice of us for a few minutes to the point where we were not sure if we should just walk in and sit down or walk out.
  2. The person who seated us looked like that guy in The Machinist and I swore the temperature of the room dropped when he walked by.
  3. The waitress who served us was as pleasant as cold sore.
  4. When asked anything she gave half-hearted responses and was not very knowledgeable to begin with. (e.g. “That bottle there, is that extra virgin?” “No it’s olive oil.” not to mention “What does this dish come with?” “Pasta” “Yes, fine, but what type of pasta?” “Spaghetti” No, it was not spaghetti.
  5. The food was average at best and the wait time seemed too long for a simple meal of pasta and tomato sauce (no meat) and a calzone.
  6. The calzone was over-stuffed with ricotta cheese and made a mess when I cut into it.
  7. Who I suspect to be the owners or at the very least the managers of the establishment could not run the credit card machine because they did not have the code. The person who had the code was across the street at the bank making change for Il Forno and we saw him coming back after they told us to go along and settle our bill later.
  8. That person was then sent home for a week

The meal came to $48. The guy lost a week’s wage. Something about that doesn’t quite seem fair. Is it his fault that noone else has the codes? At any rate the situation could have been handled differently and it was the perfect ending to an unimpressive lunch.
