Yet again, Cooking For Engineers provides useful information on what we eat. All too often we, well, I eat food with ingredients that I can’t pronounce, much less understand. Enter Kitchen Notes: Additives, a list of common ingredients with descriptions, side effects and common uses. Mmm mmm good.

Reasons that there have not been any entires posted in the last week:
- New job
- Taking responsibility for many projects at my new job in the first week
- Desire to spend time with my wife, puppies and friends after the commute from my new job
- A sore throat that makes me want to chill on the couch instead of write pithy commentary
- Slow computer at home, that discourages major personal projects, but causes me to look forward to the day I get a Powerbook
Hopefully everything will balance some time this week, so I can find a bit more time and energy to update this site. For those of you who have e-mailed me, and/or commented on an entry, I am not ignoring you, I just need a bit more time to catch up.

Every time I see that there is a new story on Waiter Rant, my day improves. I find it extremely easy to fall into each story, as if I were a patron, or perhaps a busboy in the restaurant. In addition to the well written narrative, the sarcastic asides and sharp wit appeal to my sense of humor and general world view.
On the best days, I get a chance to read about the world balancing itself, if only a little bit. You see, many people don’t realize that people in the service industry (wait staff, hotel clerks and retails staff included) are often given the opportunity to be an instrument of karma. This may not seem like a grand power, and at times it can be abused, but in the hands of a professional, it is beautiful to behold. The archives are chock full of great examples. Good advice is sprinkled throughout the site, including tips instructing you as to how to get the wait staff to remember your name should you be a regular customer. Good stuff all around.
