I'm a little slow today. I just switched to Sanka. So...have a heart?

I was out with Colin from Eat it, Miami tonight (we were friends before we started blogging) and we got to discussing blogging about food places, and how long it takes to write a post...I think we agreed it takes about an hour, give or take.

I don't know what his percentage is, but I don't think I write about seventy percent of the places I go. If nothing memorable happens, I'm less inclined to write about it. If the place is AWESOME, I may be inclined to write about it, and if it's ghastly terrible... I'm pretty much assured to write about it. I'm much better at complaining than praising.

Weirdly, last weekend I was introduced by someone in the fancy-pants advertising/fashion industry to a gaggle of other fancy-pants types, as a "Food blogger," and that sort of gave me pause.

I always thought I was just sort of bitching about stuff. And especially given my recent dearth of postings (I'm just soooooooooooo tiiiiiiiiired after my days at work since I started the new job) I think I hardly qualify as even a blogger anymore... but that's something I'm going to try to change.

If I'm ever able to dig myself out from under this immense pile of work I always have to do...

I really don't think I have a point to this post. Mostly that Colin and I agree that if a place just falls under completely average in every way, it's unlikely I'm willing to put finger to key to expound on it, positive or no...

I love reading your food gripes. It pleases me that a place as cosmopolitan as Miami can have restaurants that suck as much as the ones in East Bumfart, Ga.

Oh, they can be pretty bad, RT. :) Actually, Miami didn't have lots n' lots of good food until about the last four or five years...

We have to eat at Pub Belly. Drove by it tonight and it was packed. I hope it's awesome or totally sucks.
