TC and I went to have Chinese food last night for dinner. It was yum-mee! And in an unexpected twist, they had a live jazz band. They were pretty good...but have you ever seen a jazz band in a Chinese food place?

The waitress wrote a little note on our bill (no doubt hearing the news that personalizing the bill leads to bigger tips...does it really?). Her note said,

"Thank you and have a martacular evening. Thanks x1000. Sandy"

I'm a big fan of making up words so I was trying to figure out what in the heck martacular was. I know splendiferous and wondermus, but this new word was confounding! As we were walking out to the car, I got it...

Marvelous + Spectacular = Martacular!

I love it!!!

Just for fun, here's what my fortune cookie said:

You are capable, competent,
creative and careful.

How nice!

that is HILARIOUS o so many counts. YEs, a jazz band in a chinese joint would be a surprise but a GREAT one! I get tired of the piped in synth-asian music. And I love the new word. Wow. Your analysis couldn't be more perfect. er, more martacular!
