Onion Rings on the Side – or Not?

July 2, 2015 at 10:02 pmCategory:Food | My Life

I love onion rings and I love french fries, too. Not that I eat out that often, but when I hit the drive through, I am expecting something on the side, and I’m not talking about a salad.

All this time I’ve been thinking that I’m in good shape and don’t have to worry about what I eat. But my doc says that I have to stop eating french fries and get my numbers down. what a shocker that was to hear this morning!

OK – so now the fast food meals no longer apply. No one really offers a money saving meal without the french fries included. I mean, that is standard quick ordering – a burger, fries and a coke. Right?

Well, I didn’t ask the doc, but I wonder if onion rings on the side will be OK? Or do I have to give up the onion rings, too? Damn, I wish I had thought to ask while I was there. I’ll feel stupid calling his office to ask just that. He probably won’t even bother calling me back with the answer.

So, instead of french fries or onion rings, this next month I’ll be having salad or maybe some fruit instead. I guess I should be eating more fresh produce anyway, and since it is summer and there are all kinds of fruits and veggies at the farmer’s market, I should stock up and make a point of eating better. I have to get those numbers down!

Just Want a Fuckin Hamburger!

Went to Wendy’s last night because it was late and I was hungry. The Wendy’s has a late night drive up window – they are supposed to be open until 2:00 am. It was not even midnight but I ahd the munchies, bad. So I drove all the way up to Wendy’s and was shocked to find it closed when I got there. WTF?

Evidently they were having a contractor pave the parking lot, which meant they had to close early for the night. You can’t exactly have cars driving across freshly poured blacktop. But I was so pissed off. There was nothing else around there that was open, and the only other Wendy’s near me was 15 minutes in the other direction. I was so pissed I just went through McDonald’s at the airport location and got a kids meal. That wasn’t what I wanted, but everyplace else was closed. FML

My Favorite Chocolates

September 22, 2012 at 10:05 pmCategory:Food | Good Things | My Life

Some people are just chocolate whores. They don’t care what kind of chocolate they eat – they just want all the chocolate they can stuff into their fat fucking mouths.

On the other hand, you have people – like me – are are very picky about their chocolate. If it is cheap chocolate – or bad chocolate – I don’t want it. I want the good stuff and I’m not willing to lower my standards and eat just any old chocolate. If it’s not Godiva chocolate or Ghiradeli chocolate, I’m not interested. Keep your damn Hershey bars and store brand chocolates – I don’t want them!

I’m not a truffles fan, either. I don’t even like the Toblerone chocolates – they are not my idea of a good chocolate. I have eaten some Lindt truffles a couple of times – not impressed, but I didn’t spit them out into the garbage, either. I just wouldn’t go buy any of that on my own. I’ll hold out for the good stuff.

No Jokes at Work

Did you ever play a practical joke on someone at work? I never did it myself, but I have seen some crazy pranks being pulled by other people. I just have to be careful about what I do at work – I don’t want to ever give those assholes a reason to fire my ass. So I don’t do the horseplay and gossip train.

My little sister told me that she got ambushed today at work. She works at a little gas station and convenience store out in the sticks. They hit a slow period and were bored, so she and a couple of other girls who work there each got a can of whipped cream from the cold case and started spraying the Redi-Whip into each other’s mouths. But then someone missed and got the stuff in the other girls hair and the whipped cream war was ON!

I bet that was fun but I sure hope they don’t fire her dumb ass for horseplay at work. You know they’ve got video tape of everything that goes on in those stores? I bet her boss has a total shit fit when he sees what they were doing. She needs that job, but then again, a girl has got to have a little harmless fun once in a while, too.

AWFUL Fuckin Coffee!

March 2, 2012 at 4:56 pmCategory:Bad Stuff | Food | My Life

Most days I make my own coffee in the morning. Like probably half the country, I need a cup of coffee in the morning to wake up and start my day. But when I accidentally oversleep and need to hurry up and get out of here, I am not going to waste those precious 15 minutes making coffee.

So today I was running late and had to hurry up and get out of the house and on the road. I knew that I didn’t have time to make coffee myself. I was sitting at the traffic light by McDonalds and noticed that there was not a single car in the line for the drive through. So I got the bright idea to pull into the Golden Arches and get a quick cup of coffee from the drive through.

Got the coffee, and I don’t usually add sugar or creamer to my coffee, but they gave me some with it. After I got back on the road, I tried to take a sip and almost spit it out. It was fucking AWFUL. At the next light I tried putting some sugar and creamer into it – to help cut the nastiness. It didn’t work. I couldn’t drink that crap. I tossed that shit out the window and had to wait until I got to work to make a fresh cup there.

Never again, McD’s. You might make good french fries but your coffee SUCKS.
