Would you like some typhoid fever, cholera and dysentery with that?

On Saturday, I got my butt out of bed to make it to the bank before they closed. On the way home I decided to stop by McDonald’s for one of their Crispy Chicken Caesar salads. I had purchased one before and thought it was very good. Once at home I was already to eat my lunch when I noticed that this salad looked a little bit different than the one I had before. My first salad had nice small tomatoes and fresh lettuce. Before I even took off the cover I could see that this salad had NO tomatoes (not that I eat them anyways) and was just wimpy lettuce with a sliver of a carrot. I took off the lid and nearly lost it when climbing around the wimpy lettuce was a FLY!!!! Yep! A FLY!!! In my salad!!!! I WILL NEVER EAT AT MCDONALD’S AGAIN!!!!! I put that lid right back on that trapped fly (it looked to be on its last legs) and took that salad back! I got lots of funny looks and whispers from the people that work there but I did get my money back. I was not in the mood to eat but I was hungry so I stopped by Arby’s and bought one of their Martha Vineyard Salads. Let me tell you!!!! This salad was wonderful!!!! It was HUGE!!! Arby’s now has all of my loyalty for fast food salads.

I am proud to say I got some knitting done last week. Now it was only two rows on my shawl but it was something. I was afraid I had forgotten how to knit since I have not picked up any projects in months but it came right back to me. Of course DH had to complain that I was not working on UFO #1. I really need to work on that too. I really have to work on some more wearables as my new office is freezing. Update (with photos) hopefully to come soon!

So basically that has been all that I have been up to. I did NOTHING this weekend. No knitting. No scrapping. No reading email. I basically managed to veg out and listen to Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge by My Chemical Romance (one of my favorite albums). Yet another album that makes me feel old (I really need to stop feeling old). I think this one is a cutie and he is 28 so that is older than the other cuties that are out there. :-) I used to always go for guys like this so I am pretty surprised at ending up with dh.

You know (you probably didn’t but anyways) they were in concert the week of my vacation and I really wanted to go but changed my mind at the last minute. I have not been to a punked out concert in years. I wonder how I would do? I already know that with me being short, I do not go anywhere near the front. That will never change. LOL!


  1. There are so many reasons to NOT eat at McDonalds but I'm glad you found one that suits you! That salad sounds disgusting. I'm glad you got some work done on your knitting. I had the goal of simply cleaning up the craft room and that didn't happen. I need more days in the weekend, and a nanny, and a maid, and a cook...
