Now Jack's thinkin Arby's.

We stopped at Arby's for lunch today. While we were eating a commercial came on for Jack in the Box. I thought that was amusing. They may also want to reconsider which radio station they have playing. The commercial was good too. I was ready to throw the Arby's in the trash, and head up the road to Jack in the Box.

* The more that things change, the more they stay the same...

To answer W1's question, Rush - Hemispheres is what we played next. And speaking of W1, I found footage of W1's test drive from the Scion Dealership. She loved that car. As soon as she got out we bought her one.

Receipt available inside.

What's the point of paying at the pump, if I have to go inside for the receipt?

I was highly amused at the grocery store today. We were standing in front of the insect killers, bug spray, flea foggers, etc... when a huge fly lands on the shelf. It just doesn't say much for those products.

I saved a few bucks doing the brakes on the car and truck myself. I was proud. Except, taking the tires off the truck I discovered I needed to replace all four of them. To quote W1 "It is what it is.". On a good note I have tires that grip properly, and I won't have to put air in the front tire every other week.

It is now Saturday and we went to Wally World. Last week we were planning on steaming some veggies and forgot to put water in the pot. After about 10 minutes we realized we had just ruined our pot. So while we were there I got more pot. This thing is awesome. It has steamer basket, noodle colander, etc all built in. Sweet. Oddly enough it is not listed on Wal-Mart's site, but it was $50. The manufacturer's site lists it as $145.95. I guess we got a deal.

Still not smoking. I miss it sometimes but it has become a lot easier to ignore the cravings. I have put on a few pounds though, I ain't gonna lie. Oh well, once again "it is what it is". Work keeps me busy though so I'm not thinking about it so much. The down side is it has been so busy I don't have time to read the news, or surf the web. The nerve of these people expecting me to work at work.

It stormed most of the day, but died down right around the time we headed out. Lotta crazies out there. Like the guy at Wal Mart with my shopping cart. Last time we went there were none inside so we had to search in the parking lot. As we were walking across there were 2 by the door. A lady with a kid came out of nowhere and grabbed one. I picked up the pace and snatched the other. It was then that I realized how badass my cart was. This thing was intimidating. It had seating for 2 unruly children in the front. When I rounded the corner people got out of the way. So I had to laugh when I saw a little bitty dude pushing it around today.

Well, that's gonna have to do it for now.

I'm the boss!

This is definitely not work safe! (But ironically it was sent to me at work.) Suggestive language and what not. Okay, it's just bad all around! But it's still funny as shit! At least to me. Total corporate america. I'm the boss.

I don't wanna be healthy.

Well, I do but I don't want to work for it. I guess I can, but why do I gotta get old? I miss not worrying about what I ate or drank. I miss smoking. But not all of the crap with it. And definitely not the money it cost.

I visited a doctor yesterday and it appears I have high blood pressure, and my cholesterol ain't that great either. Who would have thought? Growing up in New Orleans with all that delicious fried seafood. My mouth is watering right now.

Due to the blood pressure I was given some pills to try. Now you know we immediately went online to check the side effects. Cold like symptoms, sinus infections, and swelling of the limbs. What the hell is that? Why can't the side effect ever be rose smelling flatulence? Or what about 6 pack abs? I mean really. Does it always have to be diarrhea with fainting?

Okay, so we're watching our intakes a little more often than we use to. It's all good. I like oatmeal. And pistachio's are heart smart. Says so on the package.
