Easter Is...

A time for bad Christians and Jews and to join together and eat shrimp har gow while other people shove chocolate bunnies into their mouths to celebrate a sacred miracle. And after the Christians--and some Agnostics--and Jews have satiated their appetites, they catch a foreign film that, remarkably enough, manages to make Penelope Cruz unattractive. It's amazing how far a yellow, gap-toothed smile goes in diminishing one's hotness. Although the film dealt with some important issues, the one message I took away from it was: dental floss really is important. I do not want to end up looking like Penelope if I can help it.

Ugly teeth notwithstanding, I've had a lovely Easter. I organized a dim sum brunch at Chinatown's Empress Pavilion. It's always a treat to eat there. Imagine an enormous banquet hall packed to the gills with people as servers wheel cart after cart of steamed delicacies between the tables. If you're from LA and you've never eaten here, you're missing out. You have to go. Also, it's cheap. I don't know how this works out, but the bill always ends up being $10 a person. There's no menu. You literally sit at a table and point at dishes you want to try as they go buy. Many of the servers don't speak English, except to give rudimentary explanations, "Pork" "Shrimp"..etc. And if you're not a vegetarian or allergic to certain foods, it doesn't matter.

That's my big restaurant tip. Go to Empress Pavilion.

Now I'm going to try and finish organizing my taxes. Woo hoo!

Your blog contained issues relating to hosting web window
which I found quite absorbing. I would argue that hosting web window
matters are best left to the professionals in most cases.

Dear blogger,

I found your post while looking for info on
href="http://www.normism.org"> wiccan name
while I found your post

to be very interesting, it was not the exact type of info on

href="http://www.normism.org"> wiccan name
. So anyways I thoght I

should drop you a few lines and thank you for the good job that you are

doing, and at the same time spread the good news about this site that

demystifies a lot of concepts like

href="http://www.normism.org"> wiccan name
. The new age prophet

Seyed Bahram Mirkalami while demystifying subjects like

href="http://www.normism.org"> wiccan name
, states that he has

declared heaven on earth with the power invested in him by "God". And

anyone who accepts this declaration will have immortality and peace in

life right away. Here's the link one more time:

Well this blog certainly is not about commercial web hosting. What the heck! I guess the internet can play some tricks on us sometimes. I have been on-line for two hours
researching commercial web hosting and came tumbling across your blog. I LOVE IT! I needed a break from commercial web hosting anyways :-) If you don't mind I want to add your
blog to my favorites list so I can come back later on and read some more stuff. Well I guess I should get back to researching commercial web hosting.
Even though my search is not on Easter Is... I am glad I came across your blog. Keep blogging away!
