End of an era at the Mean Bean

Golden duo back in the day

As Suri begins her first full week as a federal employee (parkie on a fire crew) we can now begin to look back nostalgically at what has been a most glorious era in Mean Bean history. We have to go all the way back to Jenny Cobb, at around the turn of the century, for a comparable cohort for Senor Mean Joe.

With Suri behind the counter, slinging hot joe atcha' every morning, it seemed, for a few short moments, that all was right with the universe. She is a wry, sincere and lovingly kind person who made each new day a lot more fun to start. We miss you already.

No tall boy after bbq

Nathan Lane informed me tonight, at dinner, that a blog is a living thing that needs care and attention. My blog, my love, please forgive my absence. Leon also bestowed upon me his famous bbq sando and it was quite tasty. I had to force it down, given the bloated state I was in from my phatt dinner at the Bit. Indeed I was so full, I couldn't accept the generous offer of a Coors tall boy from Dean at Zion Rock.

Spring has sprung at the Bean

Mean Joe

Occasionally stops in.


Always bitter, never angry.

Suri smiles

Her Dad makes her smile.

What makes Suri surly?

Surly again?
There are a myriad of reasons why the lovely countenance of Suri Card would be turned into a snarling mask of hate. We would like to list a few of them here:
  1. Bassett spits in my face when he talks to me.
  2. Joe calls 50 times a day!
  3. If I have to make one more burrito...
  4. The new way (and old way) to make Stacey's drink.
  5. Rachlis left the bathroom door open AGAIN.

All of you Suri fans, let's hear from you on what makes her surly.

It's Joe!
