    T minus one week

    From the weekend...
     
    1. My sister moved to a new apartment -- much bigger than the old one, and it is *ahem* very close to where she works. 
     
    2. On my way to help dear sister do some unpacking, I stopped by Mr. Chicken for some wings.  I had not had Mr. Chicken in a very long time, and I was surprised at how tasty it was.
     
    3.  Made a dent in my Christmas shopping.  But I am at a loss as to what to get a couple of people.
     
    4. I was at Best Buy where I saw that guitar video game set up.  It looked silly to me on TV, but it looked kinda fun set up.  What really caught my attention and drew me to the display was that the two people demonstrating were playing the game to Rush's "YYZ."
     
    5. I filled a deficiency in my popular culture knowledge -- I finally watched "Office Space."  I also started to watch "Brokeback Mountain."  Gina and I turned it off to go watch the Northcoast Mens Chorus perform their Christmas show.  Which was very good.
     
    6. Went to Melt again.  I've decided that less is more when it comes to grilled cheese sammies.  I didn't need to add grilled steak and portabellos and tomato pesto to my sharp cheddar and smoked gouda grilled cheese.  I probably could have left off some of that.  
     
    7. Had an amusing chat with a cashier at Zagara's about how bad Tops was and how we won't miss it.
     
    8. Found a bottle of this great scotch I first tried last week: The Balvenie DoubleWood.  I am not going to open it just yet.
     
    9. I still think Thanksgiving is a better holiday than Christmas.  It is all the family and togetherness without so much of the crass commercialism.  Thanksgiving shopping is easily limited to a single trip to the grocery store.
     
    10. When you make a list, 10 feels like a good number.  Not nine.  Ten.

    Agreed on Tgiving being the better holiday.

    The chorizo potato sammy still wins.

    What did you think of Office Space? I've always enjoyed that movie.

    Melt! MMMM. I could go for a Parma, Italy sandwich from there. Anytime is a good time for grilled cheese.

    11. Took Gina to Corky & Lenny's for her first Corky & Lenny's experience.

    12. Ran into former co-worker of MJ's at his new job -- ditching Classic BMW for Design Within Reach seemed to agree with him.

    13. Bought far too much wine and other goodies at Trader Joe's.

    14. Saw that Arby's charges over $4 for an order of 8 cheesesticks -- and that the 5 for $5.95 deal menu, and order of 4 cheesesticks is one of the selections. $5.95 for 20 cheesesticks! Gussssshhhh go the arteries. And no, I did not order that!

    mr chicken's magical breading seasoning must be made from unicorn horn, assorted magick and wishing well wishes come true. did you also treat yourself to a fried fruit pie? if not, you should, come your next mr chicken jonesing, which wil be in approx 2-4 days. i think that if i changed my sinning ways, i would like to reincarnate as a mr chicken sweet potato pie, i could then spread my golden-brown encrusted cinnamon-sugary goodness to all the world. but not in a sex-offenders list kind of way that i'm now seeing as i re-read this. anyways...try the pie. or not. your call.

    Guitar Hero is by far the BEST video game out there!

    The chorizo potato melt was delish. Although, my stomach is not thanking me today. Ahem.

    Peter! Whaaaat's happening. Did you happen to get the memo about the TPS reports?

    Never been to Corky N Lennys.

    Never been to Mr. Chicken/Chik Filet. Apparently I'm missing something.

    Mr. Chicken is completely different than Chik Fil A. Though I am a fan of the chicken sammy with a pickle on it -- you don't have to order that pickle special -- that is how it comes standard!

    I did not have a pie, but I saw them. They were running a special on them. As it is, I was jonesing for Mr. Chicken earlier this afternoon. I'm past it now, whew!
