Sean Maher Tights/ Marketman Makes an Omelette

It is just before 11 p.m.  Self is so happy because the San Francisco Giants finally won! (Thank you, Aubrey Huff and Chris Stewart, for hitting homers tonight!  Thank you, too, San Francisco Giants fans, for getting into the spirit of “Jerry Garcia Tribute Night” and wearing very convincing Jerry Garcia wigs!)

Self checks the blog just before she turns in for the night, and finds that views have spiked, mostly because of this search term:

Sean Maher tights

???

Self is completely befuddled until she remembers that last year, she watched an episode of “Warehouse 13” which featured Sean Maher (of Joss Whedon’s short-lived “Serenity” TV series and the movie “Firefly”) as a superhero who wore purple tights.

Next, self turns for relaxation to her Bookmarks, and reads all about Marketman’s adventures in the Cebu restaurant trade (This was Dear Sister-in-law Ying’s favorite blog.  In fact, she was the one who first brought Marketman to self’s attention.  For a while after Ying passed away, self avoided Marketman like the plague.  A year ago, however, self began reading it again, and now she finds it so ridiculously addictive).

A few posts down, she sees something about Marketman making an “Open Face” omelette and —  quelle coincidence!  This evening, self undertook to make a torta!  With ground beef and all the almost-mush tomatoes in her fridge!  After laboring over this magnificent dish, self was more than a little peeved when dear hubby pronounced the meat “off.”  (Really, if all someone does is sit and wait to be served, then they are not entitled to complain!)  Anyhoo, self had planned to skip dinner (in the interests of restraining her rapidly burgeoning belly), but ended up eating a few bites of the torta, in order to see for herself whether the meat really was off, and she found the torta so delicious that she ended up eating more.  And more.  And more.  And, somehow, she can’t help thinking that hubby knew she would do exactly what she ended up doing:  tasting the torta, in spite of her avowed intention to skip dinner (except for one polvoron).  The man is so sneaky.  He’s like a German U-boat.  Or a shark.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
