Black & White Wednesday - "Liz"

My little sister is awesome. Anytime I want to try anything new in the photography world, she's always willing! Like these, that I shot at 2PM way out of my comfort zone. It's been a few weeks since I entered Black & White Wednesday, but I've been keeping up with the The Long Road to China anyway. My story isn't near as cool as hers. But check out my sister below, and if you want to see the colored photos from the rest of the set, head on over to my photo blog.

Fast food may be fast, but...

Learn your menu and pay attention to orders a little better!

So i know i tweeted and facebooked this, but I figured it was worth blogging and exaggerating on also.

Wednesday for lunch, I ran over to camera co-op and had my BFF meet me at Wendy's for lunch. I had chicken nuggets (value menu hello!) and got some sweet n sour sauce. Side note: Wendy's has the best value menu on the planet.Wendy's is also currently the only sweet n sour sauce I like with my nuggets. I ate WAY too many mcnugget happy meals as a kid at McDonald's and for longest time the thought of nuggets and sweet n sour just make me sick. Anyway lunch Wednesday was great.

Thursday, I went on down to Village Pizza & Seafood and once again ordered the nugget meal. I hadn't been in years! The menu up on the wall said it came with gravy, french fries, and hush puppies or bread. Sounds great. It says gravy, I don't have to ask for it, gonny be yummy. 'Til I get to my desk and open the bag and there is no gravy to found. What I do see is 2 packs of barbecue sauce. Now...I like an occasional barbecue chicken. But I was expecting gravy. Talk about disappointment! But there I had this barbecue sauc in front of me, and of course I had to just try it. Mistake. It was gross. I think the brand on it said House Recipe and it was just not a tasty barbecue sauce to go with chicken nuggets. Totally ruined my lunch.

Today, I had to go to the post office and a different Wendy's was across the street so I drive on up. There was a car in front of me, none behind me, and not too many in the parking lot, so I don't know why they were in such a hurry. They had a sign on the window that said something like "if you don't get a receipt or a smile from this restaurant call the district manager at such and such number." Well now I just want to go back and call because well, I totally didn't get any smiles. And they totally didn't give me any sweet and sour sauce with my nuggets. I even asked for it while I was ordering and it showed up on the little digital monitor outside and printed on my receipt. So when they handed me bag of food, I did ask for ketchup, but figured the sauce was in there. I watched her grab 3 packs of ketchup toss it in and hand me food without even looking at me. Woo! Ate my nuggets dry today. Gah!

What's weird, I probably haven't eaten this many chicken nuggets all year as I've eaten this week. Unless you count Chic-fil-a, which I totally don't, because their nuggets don't look like everyone else's nuggets, and they taste way better, and the Chic-fil-a we go to in Kemah and Pearland are the beeeest Chic-fil-a restaurants around.

Is it too much to ask that you actually receive what's advertised/what you ask for ? I think not. It cannot be that hard.

Or perhaps I should just start checking my bags before I leave the drive thru window. Maybe.

PS : Don't even get me started on the lack of ketchup they give you. What the hell am i supposed to do with a large fry and 2 packets of ketchup? Tease myself?

Babies & More Babies

I've talked about having kids a few times... I just reread this post. Haha!

Let me tell you where I stand today. I'm not 25 & Justin is 29. Amanda is married and neither of us have started trying yet, with no plans to any time soon. Hell, I don't even know what's going to happen to my house.

I've spent the last few days on Facebook checking out all the kids I went to highschool with and their kids. I think I'm the only one left without one. Some I saw were kinda of surprising, but then again, maybe not, I don't know these people anymore. I'm still sure my kid isn't going to have any playmates.

But I don't want a kid because everyone else has one. And I really don't want one "because it's the next step in life." Having a kid means rearranging your priorities, your budget, and making sacrifices. All of which I won't mind doing when that time comes, but right now...hell, no. I like my life and the things I get to do and have, and I'm not ready to give any of it up yet. Don't even think about taking away my car. Not happenin'. Some people know they're born to be a parent, and look forward to it, and start thinking about it as soon as they're able. I'm not one of those people (obviously). On the other side, I do long for the feeling of family and having that complete circle. If it happens accidently, God willing, even tho I take measures to prevent it, I'm not going to be disappointed or upset. I'd take it all in with a confused excited smile on my face.

I love watching my pregnant friends go through pregnancy tho. and hearing them talk about it and how excited they are. I'm quite happy for them! I just hope I still have some friends to experience it with when my time comes.
