Boss took me out for an incred dinner for restaurant week today at Asia de Cuba.  I had been looking forward to the dinner for weeks, and I had been wanting to go to Asia de Cuba since Buenos Aires spring 2005.  I was literally counting down the hours to leaving the office today when our IT guy D (nicest guy ever) came over to my cubicle and whispered, “Yo there’s food in the cafe.”  How did word get to the IT guy about my foodophilia?!?!  Anyway, I of course got up to rush over but first had to do my usual mass IM-ing about this discovery to all my teammates.

j (4:53:29 PM): don’t eat!!
