Fingers crossed that Amazon accidentally sent me my Catching Fire DVD a day early, but if they don’t, it’s okay because I can still go to my local bar and eat a tub of whipped ricotta with bread for dinner. But still…fingers crossed.
The State of Delaware is RUINING my Adulting Streak
They’ve called me for Jury Duty in June, even though I don’t live there and even though I mailed them telling them I don’t live there. So, today I tried to call the one number they gave me and not only did NO ONE pick up, but the voicemail was full???
My mother is tentatively in for season four, but it will likely only be one or two posts per week. She has personal and creative reasons for this decision. Most notably, she thinks this blog has “jumped the shark.”
"Uh…it’s really jumped the shark. I don’t think it’s funny anymore, you know? I’m a fan! I know too much. No. You want to stop when you jump the shark, but we can keep doing it. Maybe not as much. But, c’mon. We’ve jumped the shark."
Can’t we all just unite behind a third option: that Shake Shack is damned overrated.
I caaaan’t though, we’re getting a Shake Shack (exactly where you would expect it be) later this year and a tiny part…
You should try Shake Shack in NYC because British burgers are traditionally very, very different than American ones. But, more importantly, you should also come with me to Julius’. It’s this gay bar in the Village (which I’ve heard is the oldest gay bar in NYC??? Don’t quote me on that…) and it’s full of nice old gay men, cheap drinks and the best fucking greasy burger I’ve ever had. So many NYC burgers are over the top and have fancy cheeses and toppings and the beef is massaged or from Japan or taught to tap dance…and that’s crap.
The burger at Julius’ is no frills. It’s just a fucking great greasy burger. And the fries are great. And the drinks are cheap. And why is this the best kept burger secret in NYC?
