*krysta is having one of those days... bad language ahead!
It started off with McCain's choice for veep. If I hear the Term 'Hockey Mom' on more time I might have to take my mandolin and slice off my ears à la Van Gogh and just as a further precaution I am going to take a skewer to my ear drums to make sure I never hear that fucking term ever again.
I am me. I am complicated. I like blue and I like red and sometimes I wear both colors together! Whatever sport my children play does not define me. Being a mom also doesn't define me. It plays a bit part in the role that is my life. I am more than a mom. Sorry if that angers some people but you do not give yourself enough credit if you think that being a mom is the only way to define yourself. I will not vote for you just because you are a hockey mom or a mom of 5. Address my issues and maybe I'll listen but damn it, stop pandering to me! I AM SMARTER THAN THAT! Until then... piss off.
To top this all off I had the one of the blah-est meals of my life. It was an insult to my taste buds... and boy were they mad! I find bland food just as disgusting as poorly prepared food. Both are a culinary sin!
We walked in to find pictures of neighborhood houses on the walls with the artist's statement but the strange thing was the sign below which ticked me off to no end...
"If any of the pictures are of your home and you do not want them displayed on the restaurant walls. Please contact the artist and we will promptly remove the picture."
Dude, you are taking semi-good pictures of houses without the owner's knowledge, then publicly displaying them, THEN they have to contact you to get the picture removed. That sucks.
Rich and I order our food. Salad for him because he's a chick and I order a sandwich with some potato salad and iced tea.
Iced Tea Rant: When I order iced tea, I mean ICED TEA. Not tropical flavored toilet water. I assume that when I order iced tea, it's like ordering iced coffee. Black, bitter, and unadorned... just like me. I am not expecting something green or white or clear or flavored and if you think you should serve that shit, give the person who's ordering a heads up. At the very least say, 'We have a few different flavors of tea. What kind would you like?' Iced tea is...tea steeped in water and then served over ice. There is nothing that saying steep it in fucking potpourri.
So strike one and two. Strike three...bland food, even the onions on my sandwich were flavorless. Same with Rich's salad. The most tasty thing we had was a Pepsi.
Our lunch was so bad we had to immediately rectify the situation and get something else to eat. You know a meal is bad when you have to do that. My taste buds are much happier now, thank you for asking.
gotta go and prepare for stuff... wouldn't you like to know! Details soon.
