Can you imagine going to a mall, dealing with all the people and horrible customer service and then getting hungry, heading to the food court and grabbing a bite and all of a sudden a bunch of seemingly random people start singing and dancing? You got to love it! So funny – honestly if I could participate in an Improv Everywhere stunt I would be so tickled! I just missed one that if I had known about that I would have gladly traveled the hour drive to participate in last year. It was on the local news and then of course on Face Book and all over YouTube.
I found this on YouTube and it brought back the memory and made me laugh!
Have you tried those new Pizza Hut sliders yet? I’ve been seeing advertisements for them online, and I thought that they looked pretty good. And I was thinking that it was actually pretty clever to make pizza small enough to be able to eat with only one hand without making a huge mess with toppings dripping all over the place. They seemed like a good way to eat pizza if you had to be driving at the same time. So when we decided that we wanted to order pizza for dinner, and couldn’t agree on the toppings, we decided that we would try a box of 9 pizza sliders. The company allows you to order them in sets of 3, each set is allowed up to 3 toppings.
We ordered one set as plain cheese, one with beef and mushrooms, and one with bacon, pepperoni, and beef. The Pizza Hut won’t deliver out to our house, so we placed our order online, and then headed in to town. There are three different Pizza Huts we could have chosen; one of them newer than the others. I chose the newest one – I had never been to that one before.
We arrived about a half hour after placing the order, and the food was not ready yet. The place was not a full-service restaurant, which surprised me – no tables inside, just a counter to place and pick up your order. I don’t think I’ve ever been to a Pizza Hut like that one before!
Right after Thanksgiving I sent out invitations for the family Christmas party meal to everyone in my family – whether they lived close by or far away, whether we were “close” emotionally or not. There have been too many times in recent years that I had put on a family dinner and did not invite people who I did not think wanted to be invited, or did not invite them because I knew they lived too far away to come. Afterwards the dinner I would hear back through the grapevine that people had hurt feelings because somehow or another I had forgotten to invite them, or did not invite them because I knew they wouldn’t come.
Yeah, my family puts the “fun” in dysfunctional! So right after Thanksgiving I sent out many invitations, asking for RSVP by December 8. Here it is December 22, and most of the people who I invited have not replied. So I sent out an email to everyone asking them what food they are planning to bring, and suddenly I get a lot of “sorry, we can’t make it” replies. I sure wish I had known earlier that so many people were going to NOT show up – I would not have bought as much meat!
It always seems to happen to so many products that I have been relying on and enjoying for years to just disappear off of the shelves that they have always sat on. I really don’t like bouncing from store to store in an effort to find what store doesn’t carry what and what store could possibly carry it now. There has been a huge boom in the opening of grocery stores in town, at last count it was 11, now that’s a lot of grocery stores to be running to and fro to all over town. And then of course there are many stores that groceries, like CVS, Rite Aid, Target, etc….whose main customer base is not based on the grocery section but they still have some of the staples that their customers can pick up while they are in the store buying other things.
What’s really absurd is that the Wal-Mart is being turned into a Super Wal-Mart and is totally expanding their grocery section to where it will now be the main part of the stores merchandise. No wonder the majority of our population are totally over weight, there is food being offered everywhere. And you don’t even want to get me started on all of the fast food restaurants and convenience stores that are here in town and I’m sure more are on the way.
Which is better Coffee or Tea? I would have to say hands down coffee. I’m a coffee drinker and I’ll admit to drinking too much of that tasty java on a regular basis. I started drinking coffee in college when I lived with my grandma. She used to drink it by the pot and would brew upwards of 3 pots a day.
I couldn’t handle the taste at first without a bit of cream and sugar. Over time I grew to really appreciate the bold, and rich flavor that really good cup of joe can have. I like to drink my coffee black now. Cream and sugar just mask the true identity of the coffee. If it doesn’t taste good black, it’s not worth drinking in my opinion.
I’m not saying I’ll never drink coffee with cream or sugar again. I do like to treat myself to the occasional seasonal creamer blend. But when I drink coffee with creamer it’s more of a treat or dessert than when I drink it straight black. I really don’t even think of it as coffee anymore. It’s like drink hot chocolate and milk. Sure, they have some of the same ingredients but they are nothing alike.
