Today is going to be a short blog in part because I did very little of note yesterday, and today I’ll be waiting around the Dekalb Recorders Court. I’m writing this very early and I am very tired. Man am I hoping that it doesn’t rain much this morning because I’m told that I’ll probably have to wait outside to get into the court. Wish me luck.
Did Hell Start To Freeze Over?
I ate at Chick-fil-A yesterday. Since starting to go to Roswell Photographic Society this is not quite the anomaly it once was, but this was not a pre-RPS meal this was lunch.
My coworker Darren and I decided to grab lunch out yesterday (for some reason the chicken burrito special from the cafeteria didn’t sound delicious) and he had a craving for Chick-fil-A. He offered up the option of going to 5 Guys but since he really wanted Chick-fil-A I declined his alternate.
Even without the children’s playground installed currently the Dunwoody, or is it Sandy Springs, Chick-fil-A was a zoo. Luckily we arrived early enough to place an order quickly and were out as the masses queued up for their mass-produced chicken sandwiches.
Lavanderia Y Las Tortas Locas
Last night I returned to the winning combination of doing laundry and eating dinner at Las Tortas Locas. I ordered two tacos, one pastor and one conchinita pibil, in my best horrible Spanish. The hardest part of the process was deciphering the words coming out of the guy yelling out order numbers.
My order number was 9061, on which I decided to concentrate on the 61 portion. “Sesenta y uno” did he just say “sesenta y uno?” or was that “cincueta y something?” At some point I just wandered up an peeked at the counter. When I saw a basket with two tacos I put on my best gringo face, smiled, and sheepishly asked “sesenta y uno?” and was handed my food. Even without the sweet potatoes from the “salsa” bar my meal was delicious!
On Tonight’s Agenda
Chores at home, perhaps some cooking of dinner (and I’m kicking myself for not buying that pork shoulder the other night so that I could put it into the crockpot this morning), and some preparation work for this weekend. All of this and figuring out how I’m going to watch tonight’s Modern Family — oh wait, it’s on the over-the-air TV! I wonder of my antenna gets ABC.
