Go Kellie & Paris!! (Calamahrieeee) LOL
I have an internet friend that I’m making potholders for. She made me a doily and a purse/bag. I use the bag to put my crocheting in. So, I making her some potholders for her and her daughters. I have 4 done of about 8 that I intended to make. I like to make potholders. They’re fairly simple to make and they turn out really thick, so they really do their job well.
I got really sad last night watching Kitchen Gadgets on FoodNetwork. They have some pretty silly stuff out there. Like a stove that you can cook directly on its surface. Then, you use window cleaner to clean it. I’m sorry, but if I’m going to be cooking directly on a stovetop, I’m not going to use window cleaner to clean it, bc I don’t want to taste blue juice next time I cook on it. Gross. Also, that rotisserie guy who makes all these kitchen gadgets and sells them on informercials was on. He has a ‘solid food’ injector. That means, you can insert whole olives or garlic cloves into meat. I’m sorry, but I’m not going to insert whole olives into anything I bake. They wouldn’t make it to the injector before I was to eat them all… of course, putting them on my fingers first. Bc, that’s the proper way to eat black olives. With the green ones, you suck the pimento out, first. Those are tasty.
Anyway.. they have some pretty lazy things out there. Like, the jar opener from Black & Decker. Any idiot can spend a bunch of money to have jars opened for them. I happen to be a snob about this issue, bc I take pride in the fact that I can open a jar with minimal effort. First of all, if it has the pop up circle in the lid, you use a spoon to make it pop up. That breaks the seal and then you can open the jar with minimal effort. Real hard. Not at all.
Sorry if I offended someone that has the jar opener. I just think it’s a waste of my money. That’s the bottom line.
Today, we are meeting Sid at Burger King for lunch. I have a bone to pick with the BKs here in town. First of all, their motto is “have it your way”. Excuse me, but if it were my way, I wouldn’t have to repeatedly take my sandwich up to have stuff added or removed that was left off from my original order.
We were at BK Tuesday. Sid ordered for me. I get my Whopper with cheese… no mayo, no onion, with mustard. Not that hard to remember, right?? And we got there before the lunch rush. So, I get my sandwich. The wrapper is marked correctly. They put the orange side on top (meaning it has cheese) with a big M (Mustard added) and had onion and mayo marked off on the little pictures. There was no cheese or mustard. Why mark the wrapper at all if you’re not going to follow it???
Sid took it up to the counter to have them correct it, only bc he paid extra for cheese that was left off. Cheese is expensive. So, he waits for a good 5 minutes. I heard the guy tell the girl SEVERAL TIMES how to make the burger. No mayo, no onion, with mustard, add cheese! Over and over. I’m thinking.. .is it hard to make burgers?? Really???
So, finally I get my burger. It has FOUR SLICES of cheese on it. Excuse me, but “barf”… then, I see it has another slab of meat on there. This wasn’t a double whopper. And… there was STILL NO MUSTARD!!!!
Sid went and got me a mustard packet and I ate as much of the massive hamburger that I could. But, I didn’t finish it.
We go through this all the time. They forget an order of fries or an order of chicken strips. Put lettuce on Sid’s burgers.. which he hates lettuce.. and therefore complains about the lettuce taste after he has removed it. Etc. BK does not treat us right in this town. It doesn’t matter which one of the three you go to, it’s still not always going to be your way. And too many times it isn’t our way, than it is. Pretty upsetting, if you ask me.
BUT, Sid likes Burger King. It’s the closest food joint to his work, so that’s why we eat there and take the chance of being jipped out of our money and time.
Oh, something I intended to mention yesterday. I was watching a show on TLC the other night about Little People who are also referred to as midgets, but I don’t think that’s a PC term. Little people.
So, it’s a cool show, bc it’s about families that are little and the means they take to make their world more comfortable. This particular family was able to financially cover the costs of such things. They bought a new VW bug for the Mom’s 40th b-day. The dad had to put pedal extensions on it after he got it, so that they could reach the pedals. They also have their clothes custom fitted to them. It’s fascinating!!
I liked watching their borderline autistic daughter do gymnastics. She looked cute in her little leotard… and you could tell she really loved jumping on the trampoline.
It was just a cool show to watch, and I plan to catch it again in the future. I just wanted to pass the recommendation along to yous guys!
