Oh hey there.
I’ve been absent. Which makes me feel bad (sorta).
And since I feel bad, I’m going to try and make up for it. Give me a minute and I’ll get to it…
Just so you know- I have an excuse! Our company holiday party happened and, not only do I participate, but I also help plan.
This year involved a dinner cruise. Insert any one of the following responses:
“I’m on a boat!”
“I”m king of the world!”
Hum the theme of Gilligan’s Island.
As can be expected. We were on a boat. And I AM pretty much king of the world. So yeah.
Cheesy? Maybe a little. But I didn’t mind. I find anything acceptable if you wave free food and drinks in front of my face.
This girl can be easy to please.
We didn’t dock and leave the boat until about 10:00 pm. In which we immediately hit a bar at Navy Pier until it was clear we would all be a wreck at work the next day due to sheer exhaustion.
Clearly my regular routine was disturbed. Clearly I opted to sleep in instead of go to the gym. And clearly I wasn’t about to deal with making breakfast.
But it’s ok. Because White Castle sent me a few awesome coupons for when they rolled out their breakfast menu.
Breakfast sandwich sliders? Are you kidding me?!?! I opted to try the sausage one and offered my roommate the bacon one because I didn’t want to seem obnoxious with all the food.I’m a little sad that my roommate accepted the offer. Because I could have easily eaten two.
The french toast sticks? They were sort of lackluster. I didn’t mind offering the last one to my roommate nearly as much. Maybe they forgot to give me something like syrup to dip them in. Or at least that’s what I would have done.
Sure, it’s not the most healthy breakfast in the world. And I’m sure I could have made something similar on my own. However, sometimes time is short and fast food just seems like the perfect thing to fix a craving. It’s all about balance, ya’ll.
Either way, I’m glad there are a few more coupons for coffee and sliders for when I’m running a little later than usual to or from the office.
Which will be nice. Because I’ve also been spending time offline to visit Little Miss Mon. She recently found herself in an emergency surgery situation and is spending a few days in the ol’ hospital. No worries- everything is fine. I just took it upon myself to visit her and fill the “sarcasm from Amy” quota she needs to live her life properly.
I also got a scary look into what my life will be like in 60 years when we’re carting IV stands for each other to the bathroom. The Golden Girls have got NOTHIN’ on us.
Anyhoo, because White Castle hooked me up, I am going to hook YOU up.Oh boy….
May I suggest you wear it when you go see the third Harold and Kumar movie? Maybe with your free sliders hidden in your purse as a movie snack?
Just a thought…
To enter, all you need to do is tell me if you’ve had White Castle or not. Or what your favorite fast food breakfast is. Or any comment at all, really. I’m not picky.
For a second entry, tweet about it and let me know you did so! Twitterific!
I’ll pick a winner next Monday so that SOMEONE gets a neat pre-Christmas present. You know you want it.
