What do you want for lunch?

So its another Monday at work, busy but not entirely so. I’m working, but not entirely so. I’m debating the merits of the Roomba and power consumption slightly on Twitter, keeping up on the news and jamming to some old tunes.

There’s really no good way to describe it, a hamburger rolled like a hot dog, simmered in sauce, put on a bun with chili sauce, mustard and onions, served hot and greasy. The true measure of a good bake is when the grease goes all the way through the wax paper and stains the counter. Mmm-hmmm, that’s good stuff!

I’m taken back to the days. Those days. Working downtown and walking down to Louie’s old store on my lunch. Passing the lawyers and bankers to sit at the counter and be served by Louie’s granddaughters who were either just old enough or nearly so, staring just a little too long at them. The times getting a coke in a bottle and spending less than five bucks on lunch. I’m not talking about 40 years ago, I’m talking about 4 or 5 years ago. Those were the days.

So it’s late afternoon now, I’ll be leaving for the game soon and then to relax on the couch. It’s been an eventful day, I’m full of bakes and wonderment about the looming “snow storm” we have coming.

Last time there was “a huge freakin’ blizzard coming,” it turned out to be about 2 inches of heavy wet slush, I went to work and school was only delayed a few hours. Tonight is another of the same, instead of making huge preparations, I’m planning on being at work on time, only taking a few minutes to clean off the car and not worrying about traffic being snarled across the countryside.

Dear Mr. Weatherman,
Make up your mind about the snow, is it coming, how much, when, and when will it stop?

Thanks, you’re friend
Mike

I’ve posted long enough today I suppose. I’m not saying I’m going to try to post more, I’d just end up not posting and looking like a liar. This way I only look like a slacker.

A good lunch today

I’m a bit late in posting this, but I must comment that we had a really good lunch today, Jake, John, Alex, Ben and I all headed downtown to Louie’s. Man if you’ve never had a coney or bake you don’t know what your missing. Good stuff, cheap too, I spent about $5 for 3 and a large coke.
We walked in and sat at the counter, placeed our order and through some mixup even though I ordered first, I had to wait like 10 minutes for my food, everyone else had theirs in less than a minute (Louie’s in notoriously fast). I finally got my food and enjoyed the goodness that only Louie’s can bring. It was kinda nice sitting at the counter, getting our food and just kind of enjoying the day I guess.
The bad thing about Louie’s in the after-effects… Pepto won’t help and Tums would be a joke. It’s great going down, but man… in the end… bad news.
I’m just chillin’ at home now, watching MNF and waiting on the tiem to be late enough to go to bed. A sad existence.
