the gators won tonight, of course, and i’m trying to draw up a cool t-shirt but so far nothing can express the greatness of the win they will have monday night. i’ll probably spend the next two days working on a design.
friday night was a great night at satchel’s. i worked the ovens and was pretty wiped out by it. we made no mistakes i can remember and pies were flying out. tonight, saturday, was pretty slow because of basketball. taxidermy recital played lightnin’ salvage and they were pretty cool. two young girls with hearts drawn on their cheeks, singing some funny songs. tonight the mistakes kept coming though, like the pie that we forgot mushrooms and after we sauteed them on the stove, they looked like canned mushrooms. we forgot tomatoes on a pie, feta on another pie, extra cheese on a pie. artichokes on one slice and meatballs on another… i don’t know what was going on. if it was basketball we were shooting bricks. fortunately we corrected our mistakes quickly and because we weren’t slammed we never got far behind. oh, i do remember now last night the one tragic mistake i made… i was supposed to cook that medium pie and 2 calzones LIGHT COOK! and i cooked them regular. i felt pretty bad but i didn’t do a thing about it. i should have gone and apologized at least, or given the guy a free dessert or SOMETHING. i felt pretty bad about it later. light cook is one of the hardest things for me to do. i’m used to cooking them all the same. crispy.
anyway, all that is behind me now. the gators won. we’re going to the beach tomorrow to play with our kids. my mom is moving to gainesville soon. my ipod fixed itself. life is wonderful.
thanks to all the great customers who come to satchel’s. coming up this next wednesday is my 9 year anniversary with my wife and also some live music at lightnin’ salvage that should be interesting. come if you can, wish me a happy anniversary, and i’ll buy you a drink.
