Other Foodstuffs

  • I won’t eat at IHOP because I get sick every time, but I’m deeply amused by their Wonka menu.
  • My kind of baker . . .
  • Remember how I said eateries were going back to their value menus? Hell yeah, Arby’s! Unfortunately, it appears to be between now and Christmas only.
    • Speaking of cheaper food, let me be old for a moment. Throughout high school, I ate at Taco John’s damn near daily. I always got two softshell chicken tacos with sour cream. I’m fairly certain it was rarely more than $4. Well, earlier this week, I got that same order. Now, I’ll grant that it’s 27 years later (holy fuck, wut), but that very same order cost me $8.09. For two fucking tacos!
    • Last night, my BFF and I went to Olive Garden (her fave), and I got a (never-ending) bowl of zuppa toscana, which includes breadsticks. I had two bowls of that plus three breadsticks, and that was $10.69 WITH A 25% TIP. Y’all, never in my life did I think a meal at Olive Garden would be a better deal than fucking Taco John’s.
    • Food prices are so wibbly wobbly. I wish it wasn’t just inflation and corporate greed, but it really is.
  • When I tell you we are a cookie-loving household, I’m not joking. His family’s tradition is to make cut-out cookies every Christmas season. Though both of his parents have passed, Hubster carries on the tradition, and he’ll be baking some next weekend. Here’s just a sampling of some of the cookies that he has baked, with my crappy photography skills aside.

Randomness: Consume Books Like You Do Cookies

  • Hopefully, within the week, I’ll have a second erotic short story available on Literotica. Bookmark this page to see my stories!
  • If you enjoy anything on this blog, please consider buying me a chai!
  • What are you reading?
    • I finished the romance novel I’d been reading for the last couple of weeks, and upon the last words, I threw it on my table and said, “What a stupid book.” I won’t name it again because I’m not out to be a book reviewer nor do I want to break any author’s hearts, but damn, I’ve never seen so much fatphobia in a romance novel.
    • I started Janet Evanovich’s Back to the Bedroom last night. Reading this book is an exercise in studying a best-selling romance author’s style. The struggle, however, is that it’s a book from 1989.
      • When a male character suggests his female neighbor should’ve baked him a cake to welcome him to the neighborhood right after a helicopter part has crashed through her roof, I know I’m gonna be practicing the willing suspension of disbelief throughout the book.
    • Which book should I purchase next from my wishlist?
Love, chai, and donuts,
