After what seems like foreeeeeeever, Stacy is finally back with Random Tuesday Thoughts. Hurray! It's been so long that my favorites folder is jampacked with randomness. I have gone through it and weeded out everything that is painfully out of date (funny Santa pictures, hysterical Valentine's stories - thought I might keep the snowman vagina). Let's see, what do we have...(rubbing my hands together like a greedy miser)...lovely. And so without further ado, welcome back to Random Tuesday Thoughts!...
Is anybody else having what I think of as Washington-Based TV Series Confusion Syndrome? I'm now watching Scandal, House of Cards, NCIS, Bones and this new series Crisis, and keep getting the stories mixed up. I was watching Scandal, and when they mentioned the Vice President, I though they were talking about Frank from House of Cards before realizing that they meant that lady who had killed her husband. And on House of Cards, they mentioned the White House Chief of Staff, and I thought for a second that they meant Cyrus from Scandal. And when they find a skeleton on NCIS I always think they should take it to Bones at The Jeffersonian for examination. It's very frustrating. Am I the only one having this issue?
What's a RTT without some funny cats? First we had Dog Shaming, now...Cat Shaming...
Gotta love those wacky cats.
I let my child eat this...
Umami Burger, a local SoCal chain of restaurants that have, truly, the best hamburgers on the planet, and I mean that sincerely, I kid you not, recently offered for a limited time only, the Voltaggio Monte Cristo Burger. Michael Voltaggio, of Top Chef fame, invented this decadent, evil, brilliant combination of savory and sweet. The beef patty was smothered in Gruyere fondue and prosciutto and sandwiched between a vanilla custard-soaked bun, which had been deep-fried and dusted with powdered sugar, and served with a side of maple syrup. It was...amazing. I have never seen my child react to any food as enthusiastically. He practically inhaled the thing. Luckily, Umami has taken them off the menu for now, but the kid is praying that they return soon!
And speaking of dangerously close to to being old, today's my birthday. My big plans are to get a much-needed manicure/pedicure, then write for the rest of the day. That's it. Not too exciting, I guess, but it's exactly what I want.
So I'm gonna go relax my rapidly-aging body. You should head over and visit Stacy and the other random thinkers. I am fairly positive that it is finally time that she stop calling herself the Random Rebel, and assume the position of Random TT leader. So while you're there, you might leave her a comment suggesting this. Maybe I'll start a movement.
Oh wait! I almost forgot...
