It rarely gets cold enough in FL to see your breath. The other day, it was and I realized that I get so excited that I pant like a cheesy phone sex operator just to see my breath. Not that I’ve ever heard a cheesy phone sex operator. Heh.

I hate teaspoons. If I’m shoveling food in my mouth, I want to get a bang for my buck so tablespoons are the standard issued spoon in our house. This morning, I fixed my Frosted Mini Wheats and there weren’t any clean tablespoons so I had to bite the bullet and eat with a teaspoon. That pissed me the fuck off. One FMW per bite? Really? Let’s hope I can recover and have a better day.

I’m so excited to watch the inauguration today. Somehow, it hasn’t sunk in yet that Obama is really going to be our president (woo hoo!) but I hope that spending the day in front of the TV eating junk food will help.

Does anyone else watch “How I Met Your Mother”? It’s like the writers are speaking directly to me, they’re that dead on with their stories. They’re the modern day Seinfeld but with more attractive characters. Pure genius.

When I go through a drive-thru, I usually know what I want before I get there. I get so pissed when people spend ten minutes looking over the fucking menu before they order. Sure, it’s convenient to stay in your car and have someone hand you food but for the love of God (or even if you don’t love God), be prepared. Otherwise, our bumpers might have a chance meeting when I smash into your stupid ass.

Have you ever gone to a restaurant where they serve free bread? I’m positive the waiters are trying to break up my marriage.Β  How else can you explain them ALWAYS bringing three pieces of bread for two people? They want us to fight it out. Little do they know that Jamie always splits the third piece and offers me the bigger half (aww). Your death match strategy might work on weaker couples, but not us. You lose this time, you restaurant bastards.

    I want to watch the inauguration today but am scheduled to be on the reference desk at that time. I sure hope that Hulu has it on later.

    With as little sleep as you’ve been getting you may have hit on a source of income. Phone sex, HeeHee.

    I hate the three pieces of bread trick. Although, I’m usually too busy gabbing and Big K grabs that extra piece.

    I’ve never watched How I Met your Mother, but I think I’m going to start now. Quick – go hit them up for some ad revenues.

    LOL-you’d pass out from hyperventilation here in MN! I love to use soup spoons for everything, and will have to try and catch How I Met Your Mother now that you’ve recommended it. So excited for the inauguration-yay, Obama!

    I’d have used a serving spoon. NPH is THE MAN and I always ask for more bread, fill up on it and save my meal for another time. Get the most bang for my buck (and thighs)

    I debate the teaspoon over tablespoon every God damn day before breakfast. I mean I like the bigger bites but then I get done quicker which means I just want to eat more?? Sigh

    I’ll be watching the inauguration on my lunch break. I hate how the media is just beating it to death though. I mean it is historic, but do I have to know every move he and his family have made in the last 48 hours? No. I don’t think so~!

    lol. You’re nuts. We’re watching the inauguration too, well, the husband is. I try to catch glimpses between Max’s constant pleas for attention. Right now I’m trying to get him to watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I’m gonna hand him a hard boiled egg and hope he leaves me alone for ten minutes. BTW I always pant when I can see my breath, less like a phone sex operator and more like a Labrador. Happy Inauguration. πŸ˜‰

    HIMYM – yes. Tablespoon – no. Oddly, I don’t like tablespoons, it’s probably a lazy thing. I have to open my mouth wider. It’s definitely not for lack of eating. Yesterday I ate a pound of burritos for lunch. Yes, a pound. I’m now measuring my food by pounds.

    Dooood, the cold breath thing? It never gets old. I’ve lived in the Toronto area my entire life. It never. gets. Old. πŸ™‚

    I’m the opposite with spoons. I prefer the teaspoon. Makes it easier to justify more bites…

    OK, I am going to make a confession here and say that sometimes I really don’t know what I want until I look at the pictures on the menu screen. I mean, not all the time. But it’s happened.

    Whew, I sure am glad I got that off my chest!

    Personally I think a place like Taco Bell should just require you to order by the pound. Its all different configurations of the same five things. I should be able to roll up and say, half a pound, no beans. As for McD’s, I hit it like a crack addict anyway so ordering by the numbers (instead of having to utter the word ‘double’) cuts down on the shame.

    Just wait until your kids get older and just the thought of going “into” the fast food restaurant….well, hell…I curse you with indecisive kids one day!!! Because this is what you will get….What do you want to eat? Three different answeres all at the same time…or “I don’t know…what do they have?” Or…I don’t want hamburgers! Can we go to taco bell instead!!! Just wait woman…my curse is going to get you and I will be behind you honking my horn for you to hurry up and order!!!

    LOL! It’s -25 here, you can come over and see your breath any time. Oh, and I found something we DON’T have in common (there’s a first for everything, right?), I’m a teaspoon girl. Tablespoons are too big.
    Nicely done!

    Holla on the drive thru customers! Be prepared people! Today was a crazy exciting day, eh? I was in awe-I was in the grocery store during the swearing-in part and proceeded to cry in front of 20 strangers.

  27. Sandie

    I love, love, love HIMYM!! I adore Barney…he’s my favorite character!

    And I sooo hate when people aren’t prepared when they go to the drive thru. If you don’t know what you want, walk inside and order!!

    I’m glad somebody is finding a silver lining in this cold! It’s enough to make me want to move to the equator!

    We just initiate a first strike at the restaurant and ask for five pieces of bread up front.

    Waitress: I’m sorry?
    Me: One eyebrow raised.
    Waitress: Five pieces?
    Me: Two eyebrows raised.
    Waitress: Um… OK…
    Me: [Silently] Winner.

    HIMYM cracks me up. It’s college all over again for me.

    It bugs the living crap out of me too when people browse the drive up menu. Unfortunately that person is generally sitting next to me in the car.

    It kills me at the McDonald’s drive up the most. Like anyone on this planet doesn’t have that damn menu memorized? Come on, people! And maybe you should start using the teaspoon to eat with. It might help in your HASAY thing. Y’know? Like when you use smaller plates to have the appearance of having more food? Just sayin’.

    Man, it is “that time of the month” and NOW I am going to McD’s for lunch, great. I blame you.
    Also, they do it with appetizers. WTF?? They always server an odd number? Why. I am usually gracious and let Andy have it unless I REALLY like it, then tuff shit, I take it.
    I do not share well, in general.
