I shoulda eaten at McDonald’s

27 May

I got a neighbour to come over for an hour tonight so that I could go to Canadian Tire and Wal-Mart.  Sadly, Wal-Mart had to suffice because the Canadian Tire garden centre (the main object of my outing) had closed for the evening.  I picked up a few things at Wal-Mart and just managed not to be tempted into getting any food at the McDonald’s there.  Quite a feat considering it was 9:00 p.m. and I hadn’t eaten supper yet.

I came home and put some leftover pasta in the microwave.  Then it sat there for a good 15 minutes while I finished reading the blogs in my feed reader.  I had plans to change my Facebook status to read: “Fawn Fritzen must like eating all her food cold, since she never gets it out of the microwave when it’s ready.”

Well, I discovered that it was still plenty hot.  I got my bowl, brought it back to the office, and sat down sideways on the love seat where my laptop currently resides.  I also promptly slopped the bowl sideways and the contents of the bowl — damned gravity! — slopped all over my legs and feet.

Talk about an idiotic way to injure yourself.  The skin on my left foot is still tingling from the pain.

Then I had the fun of cleaning up all that pasta (Nanuq agreeably helped), including getting all the sauce out from between the cushions.  Which are permanantly fixed to the loveseat.

At least they’re leather.

    See? It’s a sign. French fries are good for you!

    I got some lean cuisine pizza’s at Walmart because they’re good and they were on sale but they take too long to cool down! I don’t have all day to wait and have burnt my mouth over and over because I need to inhale my food and go on.

    Hey don’t feel bad, I spilled soy milk all over my couch last night!!! Ok, I didn’t scald myself, and the dogs were more than happy to slurp it up, but so annoying…

    You’re just lucky to have Wal-Mart!

    Trying to eat healthy and be frugal just doesn’t pay!
    – Says one who just finished a luxurious ice cream bar instead of eating a proper supper…

    good for you, not tempted by Mac. Your microwave potatos tastes much better than their fries.

    Not that McD’s is a big treat – I do like their Egg McMuffins though – they should serve those all day!

    Last night I dreamed I ran into Michael and Jade at Walmart! There was snow all over the parking lot, maybe I thought I visited Whitehorse

    Ha ha, it’s hard to tell one Walmart from another.
