I think I got myself into trouble by doing this blog. Nothing dramatic or traumatic like phone tapping or anything like that. Because of my “experience” with this blog, I was asked to take over administering a non-profit’s website. Pretty scary for me and the organization. With a lot of outside support, and a lot of luck, hopefully we can both survive.
To start transitioning, I met the outgoing webmaster (A) and the consultant (J) for breakfast yesterday here.

J ordered eggs and corned beef hash.

Most times, if fried rice is on the menu, I have to order it (I think it’s in my genetic DNA).
Uncle Danny's Fried Rice and Eggs
I would have ordered Grandma’s Incredible Kimchee Fried Rice but didn’t want to be emitting noxious fumes in front of someone I just met and a fellow professional member (family is okay, hee hee).

I found out our consultant is also a food person. With common interests (food and internet), I think it’s a start of a great relationship (to paraphrase Bogie). Now if only there was a piano playing in the background.
