Animal Style Fries at In-N-Out | Serious Eats

via omgsexyfood: dirtywordsonadirtywall: cessieyohh: my2morning: buffetspread:

My waistline and wallet have been hurting (more) ever since I joined Tumblr and started reading recommendations for food, travel places, clothes, etc. from my fellow bloggers.  And so In-N-Out has reached the top of my list of places to eat at.  I never heard of it before but countless people posting pictures of the animal-style fries have had me salivating for months.  And finally it will be mine in 11 days!  Thank you Vegas, you really have everything.  Although can we please work on the caloric consumption staying in Vegas and not following me home?  Thank you. 



Medical Chart of the Day: Allie Brosh accompanied her Craisin-vomiting boyfriend to the ER where a doctor asked Mr. Beau to rate his pain using the ubiquitous, proto-emoticon pain chart. Allie noted that said chart had an offensively blasé approach toward identifying emergency-grade pain, and decided to put together the more comprehensive graphic shown above.

0:  Hi.  I am not experiencing any pain at all.  I don’t know why I’m even here.

1:  I am completely unsure whether I am experiencing pain or itching or maybe I just have a bad taste in my mouth.

2:  I probably just need a Band Aid.

3:  This is distressing.  I don’t want this to be happening to me at all.

4:  My pain is not fucking around.

5:  Why is this happening to me??

6:  Ow.  Okay, my pain is super legit now.

7:  I see Jesus coming for me and I’m scared.

8:  I am experiencing a disturbing amount of pain.  I might actually be dying. Please help.

9:  I am almost definitely dying.

10:  I am actively being mauled by a bear.

11: Blood is going to explode out of my face at any moment.

Too Serious For Numbers:  You probably have ebola.  It appears that you may also be suffering from Stigmata and/or pinkeye.

Much better.  [reddit.]

I got very used to the idea of rating pain by the numbers while the hubster was in the hospital.  I’m in agreement with this Allie Brosh person – that chart was annoying.  I would have liked it much better if this was the guide we had to go off of.

Subject Header: Very Important Question

So how do I find you to play a game against you on Words with Friends?

This is why I’m the best boss ever.  These are the types of emails I send out.  Or more likely, this is why it is awesome to have a boss who has only 5 more days of work at a Company.  They are going to be long days.  But still, stressless, light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel days.

Meanwhile, I’m not going to get any work done as I’ve found an additional 3 friends hooked on it too and I’ve spent my morning playing Words with Friends with them.

Words with Friends.

I know, I’m late to jump on this new iPhone app craze – but jump I finally have.

Never even hearing about it until Friday when a friend work IM’d me (yes, work IM – one of the few things I will miss about my old job after upcoming Friday) asking if I had it – this game has quickly distracted me to no end all weekend.

Any iPhoners want to play a game with me?  I guarantee you’ll win.  My contribution to the above included gems like: “ex” “bin” and “awe.”


Oh my god oh my god oh my god.  The family friends that gifted us with amazing tickets (like I could see Jeter’s sweat – amazing) to the Yankee versus Red Sox game at the new Yankee stadium last season have offered up tickets to another game this year.

In case you missed it, or if you just wanted to relive it again with me – my experience last year was discussed here and here and here and here and countless more times too.

Although I have to apologize ahead of time, as the tickets are coming from a huge Yankee fan, but even if the Red Sox are not playing on the day we go, I will still be rooting for the other team.

I’m blaming this on my sister.  When she came to visit me back in January she helped me lug binders into my workplace (pictured above).  [Do I know how to show visitors a good time or what?]  She took one look at the portion of my office that’s currently undergoing construction and proclaimed it something you’d find in a horror show filled with zombies.

I forgot all about that comment until late last night when I found myself the only person in the building and needing to walk through the construction side of the floor several times.  It started to seriously freak me out.  Now in the light of day I roll my eyes but last night every creak had me thinking some mass murderer was coming for me.

Considering the countdown clock is now at 12 days before it’s hasta la vista former employer, I plan on never working there late at night again… one can never be too sure about where those mass murderer / zombies are hiding out.
