Every time I think about Quiznos, my tummy starts growling and my mouth starts watering and I just can't decide what sandwich/salad I want.
So I spend five solid minutes staring at the ginormous menu on the wall, only to go with whatever blurts out of my mouth at the sandwich guy.
"I'll take the Pesto Turkey Torpedo, please."

I love cheese. You can ask anyone I work with, anyone I'm related to, all of my friends. And they'll all tell you the same thing. I love cheese.
For instance... below is the Quarter Pounder with Cheese from your local McDonald's. Keeping in mind that it NEVER looks like this when you order it... but still. I *LOVE* the Quarter Pounder with Cheese (Royale Avec Du Fromage) mostly because it comes with TWO slices of cheese.
Next, we have your typical bar food... fried cheese. I'm not sure it gets much better than this, seriously. It's cheese, they bread and fry and you eat it when you're completely drunk. And lets not forget the potato skins. They're healthy, right? I mean, the skin of a potato is the most nutritious part. Add cheese and you're good to go.
And as if we didn't get enough cheese at the bar last night in our drunken stooper, let's have cheese for breakfast. Almost the best cheese on Earth... cream cheese. The sweet whipped goodness just slathered on a fresh bagel. It just makes my mouth water!

I still LOVE this movie. Love Claire Danes. Love Kate Beckinsale. Just not in love with Thailand.

And tonight's the Opening Night of The Muny!! Every year, my girlfriends and I get season tickets. That makes Monday nights GIRLS NIGHT! and we get to hang out and gab... without the men in our lives. :)
Between Em's little bundle of joy and The Muny... I can hardly contain myself!
I'll let you know how things turn out in tomorrow's post.

Now I've got another. The SloTalkers. I'm not talking about the Seinfeld "Close Talkers." No, no... not The CloseTalkers. I'm not even talking about the rate in which someone talks. I don't mind spending all day talking to my grandma who, as of lately, started speaking really slowly. I'm not talking about those people who enunciate loudly and stop after every syllable.
I'm talking about the people who don't know how to GET TO THE POINT! Please just answer my question and let's move on with life. I don't need to know every detail about your weekend... unless I ask. I don't need your whole life history of how you got to this point in time. I just want to know how to get to the bathroom!
Have a lovely weekend... but please only tell me the really good parts.

Last year, I saw Reba and Kelly, Tom Petty, and Brad Paisley... Tom and Brad both within a week of each other. All AWESOME concerts. :)
I wish I could have been at the Aerosmith concert last night. Last time I saw them it was the best concert ever. Although that was at The World in Chicago with my roomie, Nicole.
This summer's taking on a concert theme as well. We've already got tickets for No Doubt in July. I'd LOVE to go back to Brad Paisley in June. And Matt's pushing for Blink/Weezer/Taking Back Sunday in September. Crazy how that works.

Today's the first day I felt like we were really homeowners.
We slept in then lounged around a little. Ran some errands, went out for dinner and headed home.
When we got home we played in the backyard with Punky and chatted with the neighbors. We sat out there for an hour or so just having a good time.
Then we came in and did a few thing around the house then sat down to watch a movie.
Not all of our stuff is here or put away yet but at least we're living. It's good!
More laundry tomorrow!! Woo hoo!!
05 June 2009
I'm so excited because I've never had my very own washer and dryer! I mean, my parents had one, and the house I lived in for a year of college had one... but this one's mine! And it's going in my new blue laundry room! I'm so excited.
Probably the most excited because I'll be busy while the guys install it. heheh.

I'm not talking about my grandma. She doesn't need a computer, nor try to figure one out.
It's those who can't figure things out on their own. Or don't know what *.* is. *.* means EVERYTHING. Absolutely EVERY file, no matter what type. It's a freakin wildcard search. How hard is that to grasp?
I've been running IE7 for OVER two years. I downloaded the beta version before it was available for actual release. How can you NOT know where to go for the "Tools" Option?? Ugh. And why is it the middle of 2009 until you get it on your computer?!
If you're reading this, I can honestly say you don't fall into this category. Don't worry. Don't overanalyze your skills. You're good. I like you.

And we always got the grape flavored Tootsie Roll Pops.
Now, as a kid, everything grape was the way to go. Grape Kool-Aid. Grape Jolly Ranchers. Grape Jelly. And Grape Tootsie Roll Pops. Anything to leave your tongue purple.
We always got the grape ones from the candy rack at the grocery store most of all for the wrapper.
As legend goes, if your grape Tootsie Roll Pop wrapper had an indian shooting a star on it, you'd get a free Tootsie Roll Pop. (I know, the pic isn't a grape wrapper but I couldn't find one online.)
We'd get home and eat the Tootsie Pop but then head right back to the grocery store for our free one. It wasn't unusal to see a stack of wrappers sitting on the kitchen counter... all grape, and all with the indian and star.
It wasn't until later... much later... that I realized EVERY grape sucker had the indian and star on it. And only recently, did I realize it's not just the grape wrappers.
So today, my friend dropped off a grape Tootsie Roll Pop at my desk. And as I was eating it, I of course looked for the indian and star on the wrapper... and there it was, just like it was in the 80s.
I did a bit of research and found out... it's all a Tootsie Roll Pop Legend! Go here for details.
The grocery stores weren't supposed to honor the free Tootsie Pop... Thank goodness for Phyllis at the corner grocery store. She made my childhood out of free Tootsie Pops.
