Dear McDonalds..

Thank you for putting onions on my burger, when I specifically requested no onions.

I also note how you put a note on the box saying “No Sliv O[nions]” to indicate that there are none in the burger.

Fortunately, I checked, and it is a preference – not an allergy. This does, however, happen fairly regularly.. I fear it happens to people who do have such allergies.



Time Management

I’m trying to make the best use of my morning time before I go to work rather than sleeping all day, in theory it will help me when it is time to leave my 2:30-5:30 job for full time work.

This morning I took Crash with me and went to Food Lion and bought breakfast stuff, lunch stuff, and some drinks. Breakfast will last most of the week, lunch stuff all week (with some to spare) and the drinks should last until next pay day. I filled up the truck, which should last two weeks unless I have to go somewhere much other than work, and after breakfast and lunch I took Crash on a walk.

Tonight I applied for another job, this time in Christiansburg, as an entry level help desk analyst. The pay is crap (for an IT job), but it’s better than what Kelly makes full time, and we always said that another job with similar pay would be enough to get ourselves off the ground.

We’re working on getting Crash to behave without needing a leash on, and today he hung out with me for about half an hour without a tether while I was grilling, and tonight stayed within hearing distance on the walk inside. He is still tethered and crated while we’re not around to watch him, naturally ;-).

Hopefully tomorrow I will get up and have breakfast, followed by an hour or two of programming on my current web-project, I also need to make a bunch of sandwiches to go in the fridge for the rest of the week. I’ll also continue to keep my eyes open on the various Craigslist pages and maybe checking out CareerBuilder and the other job site rounds, JMU, EMU, RMH, JenzaBar, DNR, etc.

But that is tomorrow, and tonight it is getting late, thus I shall sleep. Goodnight, world.

Angus Burger

So the other day I was in need of dinner, and nothing at home seemed appealing. I had to decide between stopping at KFC to try the grilled chicken, or McDonald’s to try the new Angus Burgers. By the title of the post, you can probably guess that I went to McD’s.

So, simple review. Of the three burgers on offer, the bacon one is the only one that I stood any chance of liking at all. In the bacon one were a pile of red onions, which I got Kelly to take out, and she ate them (I was driving at the time). It’s bigger around than most McDonald’s burgers, it may stack up size-wise with the Big Mac (given that the Big Mac is stacked). In short, the Bacon and Beef Angus Burger at McDonald’s is awesome. I can hardly wait to try another one. Although it will probably be after I try the grilled chicken at KFC 😉
