Special Guest Wednesday
This week, I'm proud to introduce you all to Armen Pirjanian who defined the word,
Mischief, n. 1. Companion to that last shot of bad tequila you know you should not have, but have anyways.
2. The patron saint of boys 3-12 years old.
About Armen: Armen was born in Iran, raised in Canada and moved to Southern California in search of a life of the mind. He now resides in Glendale, California which is more or less his ancestral home of Armenia only with less genocide. He is a formulator with Amgen and a coworker of Sonia's, who you met a few weeks back.
Having met Armen a few times I can tell you he's funny, engaging, enthusiastic and married to a very patient woman, Aileen. His politics slant just to the left of hard left and Armen is a partisan's partisan. Although not a sports fan by nature, he follows the Maple Leafs like Catholics follow dogma. Although Armen and I line up on different sides of many issues, we agree that The Godfather Trilogy was the apex of movie-making, including the third one, and don't want to hear any back talk.
Armen is a notorious kebab pusher and it's through his good offices that I found Rafi's which I recommend to anyone in the Glendale area, except vegetarians with whom I rarely speak. I'm told he is also an admirer of Alton Brown's chicken stuffing, although not what that means. He used to podcast and I believe with a little pushing might become a blogger. A virtuous man, Armen despises disingenuousness regardless of which sin he applies the word to.
How to be a future guest on this site: Just send an email to dpascover at mac dot com. On a future Wednesday, after posting that week's guest, I'll send you an email with a word to define. You'll be expected to return your definition along with a graphic representing either your definition or yourself by the following Saturday. The only rules are no profanity and no novels, please. And whatever I make up at the last minute.
