The Comment of the Week
Still, I think I'll mention a few that particularly struck me, during what I thought of as a particularly good commenting week: ...
What is the scoop on top of that steak? If they found a way to artfully combine steak and ice cream, that might be my championship meal.

One thing you can count on from aramark, it will always cost more than it sounds good!

I'm not anti-Starbucks at all. I think they have very good yummy fattening drinks and some lovely breakfast/dessert items. But, I'm not wild about their coffee anymore.
I used to be (in love with them), but they were the first coffee house that appeared anywhere near my little part of Baltimore county that didn't have coffee sitting in pots on burners that had been there for hours and hours. I remember taking my son (who's now almost 17) to Starbucks and having fresh brewed coffee and him having hot chocolate and a pastry and we felt so well...urban?
IMHO, Starbucks doesn't get enough credit for being the role model for every other coffee house.

I thought Joyce was brave to come out and say what a lot of people must think, given Starbucks' success. And speaking of Starbucks, I walked to Brentwood today, about half an hour away, and the Starbucks there opens at an incredible 4:45 a.m. on weekdays and 5:15 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday, including Easter. Only in LA. I won't be making tea in our bathroom any longer.
Did I ever tell you about the time I took my infant to Hooters and started nursing him when he got fussy? Talk about stares.

That was why I was shocked you weren't the first 5 respondents .

And Mary came up with a particularly good amuse bouche:
I'll give it a shot. I'm working all weekend, except for a quick break for easter bruch, where it turns out we are having ham after all for once, but now my vegetarian brother is already throwing a fit about it, and during our discussions on the subject I have been forced to conceal my absolute delight at the thought of ham on Sunday.
While I have been working, I think I got dumped by my SO on facebook. Though I deserved it to a large degree.
And I had to have salad for dinner, for lack of any protein in the house, and it was ridiculously unsatisfying, particularly because my fridge keeps freezing my lettuce, which makes it nearly inedible. Though I probably should be eating just salad anyway. So I don't look like a fat cow when I go on vacation in June, and also because it seems I need to start looking for a new SO too.
My only hope at the moment is that EL will be posting comments extra late tonight during her vacation since she is 3 hours behind on the west coast, thus making my sad pathetic evening a little more interesting.
