Aw man, I’m hoping this isn’t true.
I was chatting with a friend yesterday and realized I should be more proactive about sharing my deals again. Desperate times call for desperate search for deals. Not sure if the code has been used up yet, but my friend said it still worked (as of 12:30am last night).

I posted a picture of a “grilled cheese” at In-n-Out not long ago, but here’s some more In-n-Out news. Apparently, Texas will be getting their own In-N-Out’s soon because they’re opening up a new distribution center. Read how the guy photographed their secret menu. Here’s another post from today of a guide to In-N-Out’s secret menu, with pictures.
My ultimate order would be a hamburger, animal style (that’s with grilled onions, Thousand Island-ish spread, mustard grilled patties, and pickles), chopped chilies, extra toasted bun, well-done fries, and a root beer float. I usually can’t finish the fries, but oh well!
What’s your usual order?
Ain’t got no creative title. As seen hanging in North Beach, San Francisco.
My friends were talking about how frozen yogurt should taste. Many of my NorCal friends did NOT like LA’s pinkberry at all. They said it was too tart and that frozen yogurt should NOT be sour. Yogurt should be sour, but not FROZEN yogurt.
What do you think?
Should frozen yogurt be tart or sweet?
- Sweet (33%, 5 Votes)
- Tart (67%, 10 Votes)
Total Voters: 15
I personally don’t like frozen yogurt at all.

Here’s a chalkboard summary of my summer in China:
I don’t like to be friendly.
I don’t like people.
I don’t like friendly people.
I don’t like sharing food.
I don’t like hugs in hot weather.
Thanks a lot for not letting me be comfortable, FRIENDS.
This is too funny. High five to Kurt for the link.
We had a mini-mid-Christmas-break-par-tay at my house tonight with my high schoolers. The main course was provided, but we asked them to bring drinks and snacks. Here’s what some of them bought:
- 2 packs of microwave popcorn
- jello (2 boxes that came in those plastic take-out containers from Koi Palace)
- Baileys truffles (non-alcoholic)
- one pomegranate
- cheez-it snack packs
- graham crackers
- some Italian cake thing
Talk about random, eh? But man, I love my kids. They make me smile. And no thanks to them, now I’m addicted to Guitar Hero.
By the way, words cannot express how much I appreciate my co-leaders. I am so blessed to be with them.
…and I’m not even in China yet!
I’m leaving for HK tonight. Guess what my last meal is…yep, Chinese food. I guess that’s what I get for eating with my family. I really wanted Red Robin or Mexican food because I know I won’t be eating burgers or tacos anytime in the next 5 weeks.
Ok, blessings to all on the home front!
For all my geeky friends (and much of my family)…

My days have been filled with lessons, lesson planning, eating, hand-washing my clothes, and shopping for food and other necessities. I haven’t been able to get online until recently when my teammate discovered a wireless connection near the window…haha! If I had time, I would have gone to what my students call “net bars” where they play computer games and get internet connection. Last place we checked it was 3 yuan for 30 minutes. That’s less than 50 cents. So tempting, but I need to get my work done first. The guy in the picture is my teaching partner, John. Ok, gotta make some phone calls with my phone card. I finally figured out how to use it after a week. Yeah, it’s sad that I can’t read.
