thanks for stacking me high and tight, kids

With the weather dipping into the single digits that Christmas flask is coming in quite handy!

Mr. G and I had to take the dog to the vet right after we both got home from work, so we decided to stop at McDonald's and grab something for him to eat. I was only interested in my beloved ice tea:) I noticed that the double cheeseburgers are no longer on the $1 menu. They've been replaced by something called the McDouble. So I said to the woman, "Is the McDouble a cheeseburger?" She said, "Yes, they just have one less patty than the double cheeseburger." Hmm, let's think about that one. A double cheeseburger has two patties, so one less would be one patty. Hardly a "double" anything.

Did you see the story of the woman who is selling her virginity to supposedly pay for her education? So far it's at something like $3.7 million. She's going to have sex with the "lucky" person at the Bunny Ranch, making the entire thing legit. What had me rolling was the Bunny Ranch's comment, "Natalie is a virgin and would like to sell this priceless and rare commodity in a very exclusive and private setting." "Priceless"?! I hardly think so if she's selling it. What a load of shit.

The local news channel was doing the weather at lunch time today. The weather dude was pointing out that it was only 9 degrees at the present time. Yet in the corner of the screen where they have the time/temperature, it said, 15 degrees. This has happened two days in a row now. No wonder they can't get the snowfall amounts correct, they can't even get the right temperature on their own station.

I was watching "Malcolm in the Middle" this afternoon and the husband/wife were trying to get their affairs in order before they died. Hal told his wife that he always assumed she'd die first, then he'd kill himself a few days later. She said, "You're not going to kill yourself, Hal. You won't even rip off your own bandaids." LOL!

I work at McDonalds. The McDouble is a double cheeseburger with only 1 piece of cheese, it has 2 meat patties. The Double Cheeseburger is now 1.19.

Single digits must be nice, it hit neg 12 here last night in Indianapolis.

They lied to me! That's it. I'm getting one tonight. BTW, maybe you can answer this question for me: what brand of tea do they use for their ice tea? I keep trying different brands and I can't get my brewed unsweetened to taste like theirs.

How's the family? I was wondering how you've been.

BTW, you know it's cold when single digits sound good:)

They come in a special "McDonalds" pouch, just like the coffee, so I have no idea what brand it is unfortunately.

Family is good, we just added a silky terrier/chihuaua puppy to it. :)
