Congratulations Steve Dublanica???

Or should I say "waiter".

For those who may be interested and haven't heard, 'waiter' from waiterrant took off the mask today. His book "Waiter rant: Thanks for the tip---confessions of a cynical waiter" is being released today. As such he has given up his anonymity.

Sure it's not like finding out who zoro really is....

It's not quite like having the mask removed and seeing Bruce wayne underneath......

or a masked wrestler having his identity finally revealed......

but for the countless readers of waiterrant over the years, including myself, it had to be at the very least a curiousity. His blog is among the first that I became a loyal reader of and one of half a dozen or so that I still read consistently to this day even though my blogging, and blog reading is much much less now than it used to be.

Rarely does he put up a new story or post that doesn't result in several people,including myself commenting that 'he should write a book'. With that being the case it is grrrrreat to see that he listened and now all his hard work has paid off in the form of getting published.


Thats a little bit hard to say after all this time. Walter, or Martin would have been my guess though I have NO idea why.

Ohhhhh,,,,,and I thought you would be older, or taller, or something.

Congrats again!

have you seen this story?


There isn't a lot in this world that shocks me anymore but this one I have to say did so. Wow is all I can say. These girls are in for quite the rude awakening imho.

For those who have asked

First of all , I would like to offer my thanks to those who have occasionally popped in to the blog, or at times through email and asked some version of "are you okay" or something to that effect. I am pretty sure that I answered all those emails, but just in case one fell through the cracks, I do appreciate the concern. That said, there is really nothing to be concerned about. I am doing just fine. Thankfully, there hasn't been any kind of illness or life altering event that has prevented me from writing or anything like that. I guess I can best splain it by saying that whatever bug bit me a few years ago and made me start this thing, post regularly, and do other writing on the side quit biting for a good while.' I suppose some people would describe this as 'writers block' but I never have believed in that and probably never will. Anywhoo, thanks again for the concern but there really isn't anything to be concerned about. I am fine.

Am i doing 'Just normal' ? ummmm NO not on your life, but let's face it, I haven't been much of 'normal' since I was like 3 and this very odd, very dry, very dorky sense of humor of mine started to kick in.

Does this mean I will start posting again on a regular basis? Who knows? I don't like to make promises that I don't fully intend to keep so I will stop wayyyyyyy short of saying anything close to that effect. I DO feel like i am starting to 'get into' the whole writing thing again if very slooooowly at times, so who knows.

Again, thanks again for your concern, and more than that my apologies for anyone who may have been worried about me for one reason or another. Most of the comments were quite humbling, and all of them were and are appreciated.

recently overheard

Server: "Are you about ready to order or do you need a few minutes?"

Guest: "I think I am ready."

Server: (pulling out her handy dandy order pad)"Okay I am ready when you are"

Guest: "I think I will have the chicken dinner."

Server: "Ma'am would you like the three piece chicken dinner or the 5 piece?"

Guest: "What's the difference?"

Server: (looking confused) " Ummmm.......two pieces"

Fortunately she stopped just short of saying "duh"
