Graduations

Right. It’s been a busy couple of days. I was glad to have been able to attend all the week’s events, including: my brother’s officer induction ceremony, his graduation and my cousin’s high school graduation… in that order. Indeed it all started early on Friday morning. Even though the ceremony (first outdoor one in 10 years, apparently) was under the scorching mid-morning summer sun which resulted in my sweating away a good 5 pounds or so, I was proud to have been there to witness one of my brother’s finest moments. Also early the next morning was his graduation. College graduations are all the same really… and I’ve been to way too many. Still, it was nice to finally see him done with school. There was time for a quick breakfast/lunch, and then I drove down to Wichita to see my cousin Martin’s high school graduation. That was a grand ol time; Martin gave a good speech. Anyways, I saw some people I hadn’t seen in a while at this thing. But once again, I’ve been to way too many of these things. Visiting people and doing stuff with people that I hadn’t seen in a long time kept me occupied/entertained all the way til the end at the Pho Hien II.

Cinnamon’s Deli / Souper Salad

The last time I went back to Wichita, I went out with my cousin for lunch. Aside from the Pho Hien II (and Lee’s Chinese Restaurant of course), my favorite place in town to eat would probably have to be Cinnamon’s Deli on West St. They have these awesome sandwiches (I’m in love with the turkey-avacado-creamcheese sandwich) and some of the best bread bowls of soup I’d ever encountered. Well I pull up into the lot and lo and behold, the joint is all vacant n shit. Even the Quizno’s next doors was gone. I got these feelings of regret, like I’d taken Cinnamon’s presence and Wichita in general for granted and thoughts like “had I spent less lunches hitting up the Pho Hien II, I might have some sense of closure to the terrible loss that I have just discovered.”

We ended up hitting up a Souper Salad. This place is an anomaly. How one can get by having only soup and salad for a meal is a mystery to me, but I’d remembered that I thought the place wasn’t half bad when I hit one up for the first time with Stacey a while back. Sure you can get full by eating salad and drinking soup but a salad is no replacement for a good turkey-avacado-creamcheese sandwich, I can tell ya that right now. Annnd, the waitress had a wild accent. It was very apparent when she said “would you like a straw?” It was all like “strauughw”… ah fuck I can’t describe an accent in words.

Anyways, the other day I decided to do some research into what had happened to Cinnamon’s Deli. It was always jumpin’ every time I went there, so I thought it highly unreasonable that it went out of business or something like that. What I found out was that they had simply relocated to a bigger location. How exciting! …And from the address, I’d say that it didn’t move very far. But I guess I’ll have to find out the next time I’m back in Ta Town.

The Passion of The Christ

Well I’m sure you’ve heard about the woman in Wichita who died while watching Mel Gibson’s The Passion of The Christ… It’s tragic, yes; I was planning on watching the movie later on but after something wild like that, I feel like I owe it to myself to check this movie out. It seemed like it was gonna be interesting enough to watch already but I didn’t feel the need to rush out there to watch it right away, as so many people have done this week. Is that so wrong? “Ah worrd? Some lady died? Better check this ish out then.”
