Burrito News

Two exciting bits of burrito-related gossip this week.

1) From the Ann Arbor News (M-Live link, sorry) - BTB (formerly Big Ten Burrito) has purchased the old Good Time Charley's building on South U. They will be converting the bottom floor into a BTB restaurant (apparently with real tables and everything!). The upstairs will be a 'Mexican Cantina.' Mmmmmmmmm..... Beer and burritos!

2) Last week I stopped at The Burrito Joint on Packard. All I can say is wow! I think it may actually be better than BTB. If for no other reason, The Burrito Joint has chorizo and BTB does not. Somehow I feel a little guilty about saying that, I guess since Big Ten was the first local mega-burrito stand. But I think I eat enough burritos to appreciate both. Especially since BTB will have a cantina on campus so it's not like I'm going to abandon them.

Life is goood.

UPDATE: I'm now told by a reliable source who appears to have read the article more carefully that 1) the BTB guys ARE buying Good Time Charlies, BUT 2) they are rehabbing the first floor to reopen as Good Time Charlie's under new management, AND 3) upstairs will be a cantina and burrito joint. Still good news, just different.

Uh oh

The men's room at Kipke, where I'm working these days, has those automatic-flush urinals. A couple of times now I've gone in there and found... well... one wasn't flushed. That must mean that there is a Vampire working in my building; who else would be invisible to the urinal eye? And since I work regular business hours, it must be a daywalker.

Scary stuff.

When I Grow Up...

During the course of procrastinating a couple of days ago I took one of those cheesy online IQ tests. The results were nothing special, but there were a few nuggets in the "full report." First under a section titled "Great Jobs For You" I found this -
Because of the way you process information, these are just some of the many careers in which you could excel:
  • Archaeologist
  • ...
Odd enough, but it gets better. Under the description of my "intellectual type" comes this -
For example, if you were on an archaeological dig and discovered an object, you could probably use your deductive powers to figure out not only what the object was but also how it was used.

Glad somebody thinks so.

Science Made Stupd

Someone sent me this link yesterday. Pretty funny stuff, especially the bits about Human Origins and the "controversey" surrounding teaching evolution.

That is all.
