Conversation with a Cow

First of all I'd like to explain something... Ms Cow's 'talking' style. Combine a small voice, lolCats speak, an attitude and a slight Chicago accent...and there ya go.

On the way home from work yesterday, Ms Cow and I had this conversation.

Ms Cow (MC): Oh my, she nots gonna likes dat.

Me: Who's not going to like what?!?

MC: da Queen!

Me: What in the world are you talking about?

MC: you didn't see da big words next to the place where the cars goes fast?

Me: Huh?

MC: dere! DERE!!!!

Me: oh...the billboard next to the highway...

MC: YES!! Dat ting. Dat BIG ting.

Me: It just said "Tattoo Expo at the Cow Palace". What's the big deal?

MC: Dat's not right. Exposing all dem tattoos in fronts of da Queen.

Me: Um...the Queen won't be there Ms Cow.

MC: Yes she will. Is da Palace of Cows, right?

Me: Ummm

MC: Dat's where da Queen of Cows lives!

Me: ummmmmm

MC: Yous just can't goes in dere exposing your tattoos to Her Majesty da Queen Cow. She's vewi sensitives about dat sort of ting. She will not bees amuses.

Me: Ummm...Ms Cow?

MC: yah

Me: I hate to be the one to tell you this, but there is no Queen Cow that lives at the Cow Palace.

MC: What?!?!?!?!

Me: It's just a big building and it just happens to have a name that has the word Cow and the word Palace in it.

MC: Dat's not right. Queens always lives in Palaces.

Me: I'm sure they do, but this big building isn't a palace, it's just a big, big building where lots of people go to have big meetings and expos.

MC: I hopes you not going to drags me dere den. I don't wants to see no tattoos exposing.

Me: Don't worry, I don't either.

Culinary experiments...

Not done by us of course, but Spencer and I have been visiting local street food "establishments" lately.

Jon's Street Eats and Chairman Bao's Bun Truck

Both yummy yummy!

Jon's is on Facebook and I'm sure Bao's has a web-site. Google is your friend. :)

Last week I saw the "Seoul on Wheels" truck go by (Korean BBQ of course) and there is "The Falafel Truck" and tons of other taco, burrito and what-not trucks cruisin' thru Emeryville.

Oh, and don't forget the "CupKate's" truck. Cupcakes on wheels. I have yet to make it when they are just down the street, but someday I will. Sure hope they are as good as everyone on Facebook says they are...

Gratuitous knitting content: Waiting for a 40" square circular to arrive. Tried the 2-at-a-time method on the 2 16" square circs I have and it's just not working out. I mean, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the whole idea, it's just that I'm not using the right means to do it. It's spaghetti, not a knitting project. They should arrive soon. In the meantime, Honey's Dr. Who socks are on hold cos I just can't handle the cable and yarn and needle points mess without wanting to chuck it all out the train door. Honey is expecting socks, so that wouldn't be a good thing for me to do. :)
