Since I promised critic75  
Here's that picture I promised you since you posted all those wonderful 'Gale in Hats' pic spam!!

Donovan in a beanie!

And here he is trying to be more contemplative:

Go check out Joyce's 'Gale in Hats' pics at her lj here and here! There's one where he's wearing a red cap and I swear, he looks sooo like cannibal!Brian there.

Also, I want to say a big Thank You!!! to all the people who are leaving me wonderful feedback on my latest story, Through a Mirror Darkly. I'll finish replying soon. I'm doing all the mommy type things in between everything else right now.

Oh and GOOD NEWS!!!!! I received a call from this woman who runs a Japanese newspaper based in Seattle and apparently, our restaurant is a big hit in the Japanese community since we've been put on a scavenger hunt list.


So they want to meet me or hubby tomorrow morning for an interview for their paper. I really had no idea. It is kind of funny when the Japanese tourists ask for 'Little Fries' and I have to say 'that's Small Fryes.'

There's a difference. It's important.

Sorry, I've got a stupid question:
What's a "scavenger hunt list"?
Of course I know the words "hunt" and "list" .I had to look up "scavenger" and now I'm really confused.

BTW cute little boy !

Thank you - Donovan is a sweetie! (He's the youngest of my 5 kids).

A scavenger hunt is where a group of people, say a party of friends, or bigger as in a college group, or even bigger, as in a community, as is the case here, the Japanese community of Seattle and probably even further than that, get a list of things they need to find, thusly, they're given a scavenger hunt list. There are several items on the list they need to hunt down and procure and whoever has the most, wins.

One of the items on the list is a large bag of fries at 'the place where it says little fries but they're anything but.'

See? Our place is Small Fryes but our fries come in a huge bag and are big.

Uhhh, now it makes sense :)

Thank you very much for the explanation.
Good luck for the interview and congratulations!

Aww cute Donovan! :))

I'm behind 3 chapters on Through a Mirror -- I'm behind on fanfic in general. I'm beginning to wish sleep were optional, like chewing gum or not, or something...what I could do with all those hours...*sigh*!

Congratulations on the interview and the listing! "Little Fries" - ROFL!

Sleeping, huh?

I thought it was optional?

*scratches head - drinks another large iced coffee - yawns and scratches ass*

I just received your mail and ran over here to check out the post, and Oh God! He is adorable!! His smile is so sweet it just makes me melt inside. Take lots and lots of pictures while you can, he will never be this age again. SO precious. Please give him an extra hug and kiss for me.
Luv, JJ
Maria: money shotslave_o_spike on March 28th, 2007 04:46 pm (UTC)
I have tons and tons of pics of them!

And he is the worst ham of all the kids. He sees the camera and he's just smiling away.

I gave hima big squishy hug and a sloppy kiss (he said 'no kiss no kiss') for you!

Wasn't there a song called "Small Frye" fifty or sixty years ago, sung by Bing Crosby? Maybe from the film "Going My Way"? It might be the wrong film, but I remember the song, just not all the words.
Any connection?
Seeing as how it's a scavenger hunt, you could double the price on "to go" orders of little fries.
Maria: Shaun There is no Islave_o_spike on March 28th, 2007 04:49 pm (UTC)
I would love to price goug people on stuff when they act like total doofus's but I could get into so much trouble for it.

The scavenger hunt people I don't mind.

And the guy who originaly built the restaurant about 40 years ago was named Frye (his last name) so that's how they came up with the name.

I don't know about the song.

Donovan is a cutie. I bet that smile of his will get him out of, and into, lots of trouble!

Congrats on the interview. Any idea how you got put on the Scavenger list? But that is great for you and business.
Maria: ratchetslave_o_spike on March 28th, 2007 04:51 pm (UTC)
Yep, his smile will get him into all sorts of trouble. Griffon's smile is already getting him into trouble with the girls.

("Griffon, could you do this for me?" "Griffon, don't you want me to be your partner?")

I'll probably find out today about how we got on the list - probably something as simple as, 'you're place is cool looking and your food is really good.'

Congratulations on the interview!! :D
And your Donovan is soooo cute.He looks like a little "Sunshine"!!

Maria: money shotslave_o_spike on March 29th, 2007 06:39 pm (UTC)
Thanks and yeah - Donovan is a mini me version of 'Sunshine,' innit he?

Griffon is too come to think of it, esp now that he has that bubble butt.

You son is just toooo cute. I bet he can wrap almost anyone around his little finger.

And OMG I googled your shop and got a picture - SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! I sooooo want to visit even more now!!
Maria: Shaun LOLslave_o_spike on March 29th, 2007 06:40 pm (UTC)
Yay! I wish you were here to see it too!!!!!

I think most people are attracted to the stripes.

And yep - that's Donovan - wrapping people around his little finger one gullible fool at a time.
