Burger King [Sep. 10th, 2010|07:39 pm]
Malcolm Gladwell
Dude so today? I did a bad job of having any food in my belly, whatever, it happens. So I got all food panicky and went to the Burger King drive-through, because at the Burger King drive -through they have a veggie burger thing that I always used to get after triumphant Angela Chase shows. So I got one, okay, and it was awesome- like better than the ones on the west coast- but who cares, it was also from Burger King it was also gross. The POINT of my story is that this poor girl who was working in the drive-through, right, she opened the window to take my money and I thought at first she just had some big, badass and ostentatious, like, matching nose- and eyebrow rings the color of blue painter's tape. I was like, sweet, that is the kind of teenage decision that is awesome for its willfulness, not its aesthetic success! Then I realized that, actually, it just was blue painter's tape, covering what I assume were a normal nose ring and a normal eyebrow ring, because when you work at the Burger King drive-through you are maybe not allowed to have those things in your face? Poor kid. I hope she grows up, gets out of there and kills a bunch of people.

Not to stand up for the man because Lord knows, the man has been keeping me down for a long time (including to-fucking-day, that is another story) but... usually in food services, they make you put band-aids over your piercings so that they don't inadvertently fall off you and into someone's future food. And the band-aids they use in food service are blue so that if the band-aid falls off into food, its easier to see than the flesh colored ones. PLUS the blue food service band-aids are hella strong. I had occasion to wear one once and it lasted through several hand washings, showers, etc. But still damn the man, save the empire!

Bad at having food:

I learned this trick where you eat something within the first twenty minutes of waking up and OH MAN it totally works. Just have yogurt and blueberries and granola or whatever around and before your brain is allowed to start thinking shit (before you even have COFFEE, even), scarf a few spoonfuls down. It is fucking genius. I always wake up and THINK about eating, like, "I should eat," and then next thing I know it's like 4:00 p.m. and I'm like, "Well I'll just eat some dinner later," and then next thing I know it's 3:00 a.m. and I am starving and all my brain can think of is junk food. But with this new and genius trick, you can actually get stuff in your body that your body can use for daylight activities and sanity instead of just weird dreams about sharkmen being chased by men in frog outfits. Or whatever.
