It’s been a while (I just checked…Aug. 31, 2009…ouch…), but it’s back.  And as The Wife says, “it looks gooooooood.”

Suit –  The super soft 3-button black jacket.

Shirt – Express 1MX fitted, white.  The Wife introduced me to finding a shirt size that actually fits.  Boy, she is smart.  A shirt that fits well makes such a difference in how you feel in it.  I guess those crazy cats over at “What Not To Wear” (yes, sometimes I watch with The Wife) are right.  I got this shirt on sale for about $24.  Don’t get anything at Express that’s not on sale.  You’re just paying more for no reason.

Pants – Perry Ellis – Marshalls – $25

Tie – L’art D’espace – No clue.  Probably Marshalls – $10 or less, I’m sure.

It’ s a question a lot of people ask.  Namely, The Wife.

The reality is, I don’t know.  I appreciate anyone who takes the time to read this blog via the site or your favorite RSS reader.

These are things that interest me, but they may not interest you.  And that’s okay.

If you want me to write about something specific (i.e.: commentary on news, pop culture, travel stuff, flights between cities you’re looking into, etc.), I’m happy to do that too.  Just leave a post in the comments.

When life gets hard, it’s important to remember that, in the end, it’s all about the little things.

PS: If you listen to LAX’s Tower feed on LiveATC in the next few minutes, El Al’s flight 6 is scheduled to depart at around 2:11 PM PST.  Who doesn’t like listening to Israelis?!

A few days ago, I took a couple of hours out of my day, went down to the airport, and watched the planes land.  Such a simple pleasure.  I recommend taking the time to find these simple pleasures for yourself.  It made my day!

Check out the pics.

Today is Ben & Jerry’s annual Free Cone Day.  Did you get yours?

It was real yummy and gave me a chance to see The Wife (“The Basheret” has changed to “The Wife” now!) in the middle of the day.  Hooray!

Yes, their burritos are REAL good (and REAL bad for you…even the chips are 570 calories).

Yes, they have great marketing and promotions (such as “Dress up as a boo-rito and get a free burrito” on Halloween).

But there’s another reason people keep coming back to Chipotle: Great customer service.

Plain and simple.  Lots of businesses miss this simple part of running a good organization.  Southwest gets it.  US Air does not.  And there’s a reason why one business is in the tank and one is flourishing (and I’ll give you a clue: the one that does NOT charge for bags is doing well).

A few nights ago, I ordered a Chipotle burrito from home.  I mean, Chipotle is quick, but ordering pick-up and pre-paying means I don’t miss more college football than necessary.  C’mon.  Priorities.  I walked into Chipotle about 5 minutes after the pick-up time, up to the register, and unfortunately, my burrito was not ready.  Someone bypassed the rest of the workers on the line, made my burrito, and even included a small container of guacamole.  For free.  Yeah, it’s a small thing, and yeah, I don’t like guacamole (I know, I’m from San Diego, how can I not like guacamole…it’s just a texture thing), but they obviously went the extra step to make a customer happy.

That’s a good business.

What do you think?!

Yeah.  I’m goin’ there.

I was in the shower today, as I normally am around 8AM, and I decided to shampoo my hair, wash my body, and then rinse out the shampoo.  I’m not sure why, but it felt so much better than when I normally rinse.  Any ideas as to why?

All I know is that it was an awesome feeling to start the day!

Remember: it’s all about the little things.
