i was starting to suspect that i was the only one. whew.

blogging always made me think better. or maybe, perhaps, it made me think at all.
given the rate of my blogging nowadays, i'll let you draw your own conclusions.
tip of the week:
when purchasing peaches from the farmers market, ensure that none go rogue and roll to the back passenger floorboard, only to be found thirty hours later, putrefying in the ninety degree heat. hypothetically.
from a comment i made elsewhere.
"love, in all forms, is bigger and more complex than quotes and platitudes."
a little while back, i was driving and in need of sustenance. not wanting to stop and eat, i pulled into the drive-thru at mcdonald's [don't judge me]. i was in search of a mcnugget meal; easy consumption with minimal distraction.
the only tiny breaded chicken chunk option on the larger-than-life-food-photo board was for a ten piece meal. now, yes, i realize i chose to eat at mcdonald's. perhaps not the most health conscious, but really, i don't need TEN tiny breaded chicken chunks. didn't they used to come in a standard smaller quantity?
"do you still have a six piece meal?" i inquired.
indeed, they did.
as i was retrieving my order, it became apparent that i had just ordered a mighty kids meal. i was slightly miffed, as i desired a normal sized coke to supply me with caffeine for the drive, but mostly i was amused as i tossed aside whatever shrek toy was included in my mighty meal.
as i pulled back onto the highway, i became more unsettled [and no, not because of the content of the mcnuggets]. i mean, i am certain that the regular value meal used to be six pieces. [didn't it?]. at what point was it decided that six was now clearly not enough? at what point was it decided that six was suddenly an appropriate amount for a kids meal? NEED MOAR NUGGETZ.
perhaps my memory is faulty. and the fries were a small, not a medium. but regardless... my "kid" sized meal was a perfectly appropriate amount of food for my mdog sized hunger.
i don't have a little bow in which to wrap this up. just putting some thoughts out there.
dependability and consistency are vastly underappreciated.
at some point in the past few weeks, i was going to post about little things going wrong and compounding into a giant ball of i completely and irrationally but only occasionally hate my entire life omg wtf. as it turns out, this post does a fairly accurate job.
