Lisa: Not just pretending

Things I am thinking about right this minute:

  • Working at a school while going to school is a bad idea. My finals week is always the busiest week at work, too, which is crappy. (If you are a 30-50 year-old man in the Salt Lake area who would like to do some easy work for $15/hour, CALL ME!)

  • Support the Lisa and Blake fund: buy my parents' coffee table!

  • My costume is coming along fabulously, albeit a little slowly. At the last sewing session, I found that invisible zippers are hard to put in, especially if you have never done it before, are just trying to wing it, and don't have the right sort of presser foot. I guess I will be going to the fabric store to purchase a new, unmutilated zipper.

  • Macadamia nuts are absurdly expensive. Sarah and I had a whole riff about this, which I can't remember now.

  • The employees at the McDonald's by my apartment seem to be especially inept. Blake and I swing through their drive-thru quite often after work, and I always order the same thing: a Bacon Ranch Salad with grilled chicken, and a medium Diet Coke. This is a regular menu item, nothing funny, but they manage to mess it up almost every time. I have never gotten croutons with my salad (but I have at other McDonald's stores), I have been given the breaded chicken instead of the grilled several times, once I got the salad without the chicken entirely, and once they tried to give me a grilled chicken sandwich with bacon on it. Honestly, people! The folks at Burger King have my "usual" memorized, and have it sitting on the counter for me by the time I'm ready to order.

  • Babies are nice.

    While purchasing macadamia nuts at astronomical prices, Lisa and I hypothesized the reason for the reason one must mortgage your worldly possessions to obtain these nuts. Possibly they are free range macadamia nuts?

    Earlier this week I ordered my usual and the order-taker repeated it back to me all "Filet o' Fish and a medium Diet Coke?" How does that sound like BACON RANCH SALAD WITH GRILLED CHICKEN???
