To market, to market

For those of you who have grown up in Fredericton or the surrounding areas, or have lived here and are privileged enough to recall the savory taste of a Patel's Samosa, be prepared...


As part of my dinner last night I enjoyed 3 delicious beef Patel's samosas.

As most of you know, the Patel family was famous at Fredericton's Farmers Market for making the most delicious samosas and having the longest, yet efficient, line up. However all good things must come to an end. The Patel's were asked, along with current market sellers Samosa Delight, to move their stand outdoors because their lineups were disrupting the flow of the market going crowd. Patel's turned down the offer and decided it was time to retire their rich asses, so they loaded up and left Fredericton to vacation in the South. Upon returning, old Mrs Patel, who was the talent behind the samosas, decided she would never make them again to sell to the public. Whoa is me.

Meanwhile, Samosa Delight happily moved out of the interior market, set up a trailer and relished in the absence of Patel's and their #1 competition.

So, how it is, you are asking, that I came to acquire such a treasured meal? Well, recently a movie was made about Mrs Patels life. For the movie, she had to make samosas. And for the, this is where my details get fuzzy I was too busy eating to listen, either wrap party or premiere she helped cater the event by supplying, you guessed it! Her homemade Patel's samosas aka heaven! PS My mom's best friend was there and she gave us a few bags which are now in the freezer. We're attempting not to eat them all at once.

I would just like to say I am at work and supposed to be working right now but it's 10 minutes til lunch and I am alone and bored. The summer was so fun here because I got to share a private trailer with 3 other buddies. Now I am stuck in a new trailer, which I like to call the trailer of silence, or the trailer of death. It is so quiet in here, I am afraid to sneeze! And talking on the phone is weirdly embarrassing because it is just a big open room so everyone can here your entire conversation. It is especially quiet today because everyone in here has taken this beautiful Friday off. Guess I missed the memo.

So I sit here and I listen to music and do my work and abstain from stabbing myself repeatedly in the wrist with my staple remover. For now at least, I've only been sitting in here for one week....

Concerned Children's Advertisers

Okay, we all remember these from when we were younger. They are the 1 min commercials that teach you a life lesson. I just watched "We are girls, we will do what's right for us." and was inspired! I wish these were on TV nowadays more often. I've included some links to a few favorites, I think you'll all be pleasantly surprised by the reminiscence. And who knows, maybe you'll learn a thing or two ;)

PS: Did anyone else think the house hippo one was real?
