The Sunday Post

I was going to write a post called Rejected Post Ideas, but I couldn't get up the energy. So this is going to be instead the generic Sunday post.

I dreamed of ants last night, probably because the Argentine invaders have come back in force, one of their scouting number appearing wherever I happen to be, or where ever my food happens to be. I set my finished plate on the floor (I was watching TV and was tired), then went to bed, but my slumber was haunted with visions of tiny black bugs crawling everywhere, including all over the bed. Upon waking I discovered my forgotten plate, right where I'd left it the night before, covered with a moving black sheet. I quickly disposed of it, leaving random ants wandering aimlessly.

It's been wet the last couple of days here, with no sun at all. I like it.

I made the mistake, the other day when I deposited my check on my lunch break, of thinking McDonald's would be a good idea. I saw the drive-thru (the fast food giant has a location right next to my bank) was moving fast, and that I would still have time to get a little something. I hungrily zoomed through the parking lot, racing another car coming the other direction, beating them to the lane that featured the menu board and intercom. The dollar menu beckoned and I ordered two McDoubles (only one slice of cheese now, formerly two slices and called the Double Cheeseburger then), small fries and two apple pies (those are two for a buck) and it didn't look like much food. When I read the little apple pie boxes after consuming eveything, my folly was clear; each "pie" (and they're quite small) had 250 calories, 500 in two of them. I had consumed my fill for the day in a single meal. I'm hatin' it!


  1. Hi,

    Please come by blog and pick up your award.

    And pass it on to 5 blogs of your choice.

    It would be good if you would choose some blogs new to you.

    Please mention who you got the award from, when you put it on your sidebar add link to blog you received it from.

    You can also make a comment about the person who gave the award to you by asking your readers to stop by their blog, pay them a visit, leave a comment, or even 'follow' their blog if they feel led to.

    Pass the award on to other blogs and contact these bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

    Just go to their site and leave a comment to one of their posts telling them you have an award for them and to please come by your blog to get it.

    I am not passing this award along as much as I am giving you a list of blogs to check out and hopefully follow.

    I know some of those I have selected may prefer not to participate in this little exercise and that is fine, no problem. Please visit these blogs and if you leave a comment maybe say Herrad sent you.



  2. OMG, that is so true about McDonald's. You get so many calories from just one little thing, its crazy making. I laughed so hard at the "I'm hatin' it" LOL...that was great. Loved the blog =)

  3. Yeah, I love fast food humor. Thanks for the laugh this morning! I'm giving you an invisible blog award.

  4. oh no
    never ever
    drive in through the Golden Buttocks.

  5. Hi Herrad, thanks. I'll get to passing it on as soon as I can. I just now discovered which of your blogs to go to to "pick it up".
