FOODIE FRIDAY for May 22, 2009


Man, it actually kinda hurts to do a Foodie Friday post today. See, I broke a tooth earlier in the week, and my mouth feels all weird and unhappy, and eating is not currently the most pleasant experience for me. At least not until Tuesday, when the tooth will hopefully be fixed. So today's Foodie Friday entry doesn't deal with actual food. It deals with a restaurant. Well, at least I think it's a restaurant. VICKI D. snapped this photo. She says: I saw this neon sign in the window of a deli in Lyndhurst , NJ. I couldn’t help taking a picture of it to send in…what does one do in a “dinning” room?

My thoughts exactly. If you dine in a dining room, do you din in a dinning room? Apparently "din" can be a verb (a fact I didn't know until today). "Din" can mean "
to sound or utter with clamor or persistent repetition." So is the place in this picture just a very annoyingly noisy room?

Thanks, VICKI, for spotting this one!

This dinning is going on everywhere. It's a fairly recent activity that's popping up all over the place.

Yeah, I've gotta say I'm not really a fan of this "dinning" nonsense. :)
