The Check Is In The Mail

The title of this post has a couple different meanings. On one hand, I mailed my $40 phone bill yesterday (it’s only that much because I had them install the line at my new apartment – they charge $16 to press an “on” button, basically) and on the other hand, I got my FIVE DOLLAR REBATE CHECK in the mail from when I bought my power strip for my computer. The thing cost me like, 7 or 8 bucks, but now I have FIVE of that back. That will pay for the iced caramel macchiato I had today. I daresay, that may just become my “thing” when I go to Starbucks… I mean, it used to be caramel frappuchinos, so this is pretty similar. The caramel and everything.

I haven’t mentioned this before, but I have this weird habit of finding ONE THING that I like at a restaurant, and then that becomes the ONLY thing I will order there every time I go. For Burger King, it’s a bacon double cheeseburger. I love restaurant bacon. For Wendy’s, it’s a junior bacon cheeseburger, PLAIN. I think they put lettuce and mayonnaise on those, and that’s just downright awful. Mayonnaise is so f-ing disgusting. Ew. I don’t remember what I get at McDonald’s, because I ususally try to avoid going there because they slice up onions into little eensey weensey pieces and then put them on EVERYTHING. You can’t escape. And I hate onions. And pickles. Anyway, at Taco Bell, it used to be a chicken soft taco and mexi-nuggets, but then they went and changed their entire freaking menu on me, so now I get a… *thinking* …a “normal taco with a soft taco around it with that fake cheese in between.” I don’t remember the name. That and those weird potato bits with the fake cheese on them. At Carl’s Jr., it’s a western bacon cheeseburger.

I don’t like variety, I guess. My mom says I’m just like my dad in that sense; we both get stuck in ruts really easily. And we don’t like change. I know I certainly don’t. I was horrified to find out that Taco Bell had replaced my deliciously spicy tater tots with wholesome bits of real potatoes. What would I order at Taco Bell now?!?

Today was the editing day for our zombie movie. I had two classes so I couldn’t help out, but I’m going to help out with the audio bit of it on Friday at 10am. I am TOTALLY going to post the movie once it’s done. I swear it’s great.
