Life Is Short. Have Desert First... (Yotveta is a great place to start)

The Outside Blog Minion Report


One of the things I love about Poppy Dinsey is that she, like I, enjoy taking pictures of her food. When you are really enjoying your meal it is very cool to be able to share it on Facebook, Flickr, ActiveRain and a host of other available social media blogging platforms.

Yotveta is becoming a fave spot to dine when in Fresh Meadows. I must tell you about desert. It's yummy. Creame Burlee, Chocolate Mousse, Strawberry with Whipped Cream... lots of seasonal fruits to do very interesting dishes. It is the first dairy kosher restaurant I've had the pleasure of experiencing. I'm working my way through the menu with my gal pals. I may have to do a slide show. So many dishes, so little time (LOL). It's a great place for a social media tweet-up. Had three so far. Looking forward to many more. For all you people who don't get Twitter, Facebook, ActiveRain, here's a thought:

Social media is harnessing real time events for leisurely digestion or instant gratification. There is a wealth of knowledge floating through cyberspace. You can find just about anything if you look diligently for it. Once discovered, or created, you can savor the virtual moments with your friends and always catch up in real life at some point. No rush. Just log in and see who is updated, live, missing, tweeting or direct messaging. Sometimes my favorite posts are simple, small micro-blogged statements like, "brought a new CD/DVD," "about to go watch a movie," "bubblebath time," "meet me at the bar..." and my all time silent favorites: " :-)  ;-)  :-P  :-D :-S  :-/  :-J "(LOL). If you spend enough quality time in cyberspace with the people you care about you can discover just about anything at any given moment. Where we like to eat, vacation spots, music picks, gaming habits... I recently discovered I like flipping quotes back and forth with some of my friends. Being an ardent Dr. Seuss fan, you never know what kind of quote you're going to get from me (LOL). My last three flips:

"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." Dr. Seuss

"Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened." Dr. Seuss

"Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You." Dr. Seuss

Needless to say we DM a lot. If we didn't, our home pages would be a disaster (LMAO). There are some conversation that shouldn't be posted on one's Facebook wall. ;-) The fun thing about flipping quotes is that it makes you think about what you're going to share or tease your buddies about. Here's a few more nuggets from the Life Is Short - Have Desert First crew:

"As you grow older, you'll find the only things you regret are the things you didn't do." Zachary Scott What do you regret not doing? I regret not traveling more, so I've been making up for that by visiting with my friends and driving them stark raving mad. I don't always blog about where I've been or where I am going, but I have been quite mobile lately, spreading my special brand of insanity one county at a time. Yes, there is eye candy to be had from my wanderings... and many a drooling lunatic left in my wake. I'm sure when they get off their meds they'll think of a deliciously wicked way to retaliate with their love gifts. My friends always give as good as they get, that's why we're still friends (LOL). ;-)

"To change one's life: Start immediately. Do it flamboyantly. No exceptions." William James You do not have to tell me this twice. I get it. Seriously... This is the button my gym buddies love to push. I am now a New York Sports Club fanatic. ;-)

"Life is not lost by dying. Life is lost minute by minute, day by dragging day, in all the thousand small uncaring ways." Stephen Vincent Benét I played an awful lot of phone tag behind this one (LOL). Can you say touchy-feeeeely? Bet they regret pushing the old mush button (LMAO). Word of advice, never hint to lunatics that they don't care about you. They may agree (Oh horror!!!) or they may go out of their way to prove you wrong. ;-)

"If you woke up breathing, congratulations! You have another chance." Andrea Boydston I love this quote. It's on my fridge. It makes me laugh everytime I start whining about something that I ought not to be whining about.

Life is short. You really should have desert first. May I suggest the Chocolate Mousse? (LOL) BTW:

"May you live all the days of your life." Jonathan Swift

Sheldon, he was brilliant and I adore him (LOL). I have to bring you here for a meal. It's fabulous. Simply fabulous. I am hopelessly in love with Israeli food. I'm making the rounds with my friends who are showing me a whole new foodie paradise world. :-)

You post is full of passion for life and I like the spirit of the quote, "May you live all the days of your life."  The right quote can be very powerful.

Thank you, Norma. Every day is a gift of life and I am hoping to instill that in my wee ones. They are dramatic little people with huge emotions. Sometimes one of their tantrums can move mountains regarding how I view life (LOL). Every day I find something to love, admire and share with them, from Thomas the Train to the NSA shots of the universe on iTunes. :-)

Hey my girl.  I just came across this one.  I love quotes and some of these are wonderful.  Life is short, although, this market is making it feel very long!  lol!  I love the entire paragraph that starts with "as you get older the only things you regret are the things you didn't do".  Boy, you can say that again.  Then you made me laugh out loud with " when they get off their meds....".   Lol!!!

LOL @ Susan. I've got people flying in from GA and there is an event in Valley Stream Park that's fun for the family. I'm thinking about blogging about it because I want to go. All you can eat buffet. Yeah! Wanna come play? We're going to be flipping quotes live. :-)
