Amazing Discoveries

Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer
Today I discovered that stores actually open before 10am on Saturday mornings. I had no idea.

monstersocks and I went to the Perfect Circle concert last night (the reason we sadly missed grilling) and I took her to the airport this morning. Next I ran some errands and looked for ideas for christmas gifts for people. (I also discovered that the new 20" iMac is really nice.)

I went to the 1pm showing of Bubba Ho-Tep at the Uptown. I thought it was great. More time was spent on the concept of aging than I expected, but I thought Bruce Campbell as Elvis was wonderful. Sadly I think they were just teasing us about "Bubba Nosferatu". (So I didn't get picked to attend BNAT, at least I got to see one really cool movie this weekend. Lucky bastards.)

Did more shopping (almost picked up a new shredder but decided instead to do the purging now and see how much stuff accumulates in the "To Shred" pile) then stopped at work to make sure things were still okay following yesterday's excitement. Finally came home and got a call from monstersocks to hear she'd arrived safely.

Did I forget anything important? Oh, I got dinner at McDonald's and discovered they don't have 9 piece chicken nuggets now, they have 10 piece packages. Weird. I also ordered an Arctic Orange milkshake but I'm pretty sure what I got was eggnog. At least I got rid of my Susan B Anthony dollars at the drive thru.

Tomorrow will hopefully involve some cleaning and maybe a movie (my Alien Quadrilogy set showed up this week) and most likely less fast food. Oh, and I should remember to call my sister in law and wish her a happy belated (by one day) birthday.

Did you come into my store today? I wasn't there yet at 10am, but yeah, holiday hours. We are also open until 10. Today was busy, we're now low on 20gb iPods, iTrips, printers, and 15" PB's.
About the chicken nuggets, I think they have bioengineered new better chickens. Now with 10 nodules of meat!

I was in the Southdale store around 11am on Saturday morning. I thought about heading to the MoA but I was planning on stopping by some office stores to check out shredders and knew where more were around Southdale than MoA. I also knew that if I went to the MoA I'd end up having breakfast at Krispy Kreme.

The new nuggets are a little weird. Next they might start using whole chunks of chicken instead of forming shapes out of some blended pressed chicken slurry. Crazy.

All the shock and confusion should teach you not to eat those godawful things in the first place.

I have McDonald's food maybe once or twice a year these days. I gave up fast food for the most part since it's pretty bad for you and isn't really worth it. Occasionally they have something (like Shamrock Shakes or Arctic Orange Shakes) that lures me back.

I have a girlfriend who is a whore for the shamrock shakes and apple pies. We all have our vices. I am a whore for Taco Bell cheesaritos.

Damn cheap and nasty yet somehow tasty and occasionally necessary fast food!
