I'm Not a Panini Meanie

My latest neighborhood reporting may be found here.

A few notes:
  1. If you couldn't tell, there was some editing to my piece. I would never use the phrase "in summary," nor would I use a comma in front of a conjunction sans subject. I would, however, put a comma before a conjunction in front of another subject. I'm not thrilled when people mess with my commas. I use my commas correctly. I also don't write my time in that particular format, but c'est la vie. The guys who run the site are awesome, and it's a great service to the community. They do it all for free, so major props to these lovely boys.
  2. To be completely honest, I didn't unleash the Leslie Brenner in me. I could've slammed the place, but I refrained mainly for selfish reasons. I really want this place to succeed, so I'll have another decent dining option close to me. Thus, I was quite kind. I figure the place still has time to improve.
  3. I would pick Tiara Cafe or Angelique Cafe over Panini Cafe any day. (Why do they all have "cafe" in their names? Weird.)
  4. I am very boring when I report. Such a different breed when I must be serious. You should read my legal briefs. Snooooooooozer.
Thank you, and good night.


  1. I dig the photos, especially the ones of the patrons eating inside the cafe.

  2. yeah, sounds/looks edited. love your insider's notes here.

  3. Definitely a heavily edited version of the WeeMo writing we know! I also enjoyed the "Behind the Story" commentary. :)

  4. That was extremely kind of you to not blast them. They should give you a free panini or tea or something.

  5. Hi! I just wanted to give you a fly-by. I always enjoy your blog and your writing style. It's obvious you take great care in the use of your commas; other writers enjoy your skill immensely. Since Diabolina cites you as a significant influence on her blogging, you are therefore a great influence on mine!


  6. i would NEVER edit your pieces on the JQ Lounge...


    that's a cool opportunity though! Congrats :)

  7. I, love, comment, #1, above. :)

  8. No "in summaries???!!!" What in the world do you put in your legal briefs???!!! If you were to remove all of my "therefores" and "in summaries" and "in additions," I bet all my legal briefs would only be about a page long.

  9. Nice, kind, summary! I hope I used my commas correctly. I may have developed a comma insecurity issue now...

  10. "In summary" made me laugh. I don't even use that in research papers. It's a total high school move.

    I missed the comma splice. Where is it?
