Looking Back: part four

30 Aug

All week I’ve been counting down the top five most memorable moments of my first year of blogging. Here’s number two.

From September 1: “Better Late Than Never
How could I do a countdown and not include the one that started it all? I had wanted to keep a blog for a year or so before I started. Actually, I wanted to do a lot of things. But this is the one goal I actually accomplished. And I’d say it’s worked out quite well. I don’t have much more to say about this post, other than its obvious significance in my blogging history. Of course, it begs the question, if my first blog entry is only the second most memorable one, what is first on the list? For that, you’ll have to come back tomorrow. For now, you can read my very first posting here.

Yesterday: number 3
Tuesday: number 4
Monday: number 5

Pondering the Pita

30 Aug

Here at Martin’s Musings, I only like to ponder the really important issues of the day. Here’s a quick question that’s on my mind at this present time: When and why did pita bread become the standard bread to hand out with food at take-out places? At most places, no matter what you order, you get pita with your meal. For example, today I got a chicken parmigiana “dinner” (i.e.: it included pasta) from Taste of the Town, and instead of, say, Italian bread, I got pita. When I used to go to the Kingston Deli, they would give you pita. And various other take-out places give it to you as well. I can understand it if you’re getting a kebob or salad or something you might make into a sandwich. But where is the logical connection between chicken parm and pita? I just don’t get it.
