Things I don’t understand

On at least every subway car I’ve been on I see an ad for the Dunkin Donuts tuna melt sandwich/bagel thing. VOM. I’m sorry, but I don’t understand how anyone can eat that! I know some of you do, and I apologize for the rant, but you take my hatred of tuna fish, and then throw cheese on top of it?? ‘Scuse me while I swallow the bile that is currently in my mouth.

Also – if the weatherman says it’s going to be in the mid 60s to 70s, why are you wearing a winter coat? Yes, it may be a little chilly in the morning, but really? Put on a scarf. Your down coat needs to go into the closet for the next half of the year. For reals.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. The left side of the escalator is for walking, the right is for standing. So don’t look at me funny when I start breathing on your neck right behind you on the LEFT SIDE and ask you to move. You’re on the wrong side, bitch! (And thanks to this artist who started making “subway etiquette” signs that look like official MTA signage. I heart you.)

I don’t understand how I ever lived without my Kitchen-Aid Mixer. I used it for the first time yesterday while making Dave’s birthday cheesecake, and OMG LOVE. (And Happy Birthday Dave!!)

Why is it that coffee will sometimes make me super jittery and crazed, and sometimes won’t have any affect on me what so ever? (I don’t want a real answer to this, it just annoys me!)

Why am I still coughing? Mucus, you should be gone from my life now. Seriously. At least I didn’t wake up having a coughing fit again, like I did for two nights in a row. Sheesh.

And how is it Monday again? ๐Ÿ™



  1. I share your kitchenaid love…when we got married, my husband couldn't understand why I needed to add this to the registry..he thought I'd never use it. Boy have I proven him wrong…I whip that baby out 2-3 times a week on the low side, sometimes multiple times a day! Best gift ever ๐Ÿ™‚

    and ps. that cheesecake sounds delish!

  2. I do like tuna.. but tuna with cheese is a bit much. I cannot wait to get all of my blenders, mixers, etc… hahaha xxxooo

  3. Ugh, I can't stand people who stand on the wrong side of escalators – it infuriates me!

  4. I like tuna, but tuna and cheese – from Dunkin Donuts, no less – sounds disgusting.

    I'm totally the same way with coffee. Sometimes I drink it and I go into super productive mode, but on other occasions, it doesn't do a thing for me. Weird.

  5. Suburban Sweetheart says

    Escalefters. The word is escalefters. And I despise them.

  6. Shoshanah says

    I always feel like I'm not a big fan of tuna. But there are times when I enjoy it. Really only when I eat my mom's tuna salad. My favorite would be an apple curry tuna salad she'll make. But I'll pretty much refuse to eat anyone else tuna, and don't really like to idea of cooking it myself

  7. Lariats and Lavender says

    I hate tuna. v.v I also hate salmon. And any fish with eyes. And any non-breaded (aka: healthy) fish. I'll take fried calamari, bite sized popcorn shrimp and breaded halibut, walleye and crappie ANYDAY.

    Also, happy b-day to Dave!!!

  8. Oh, poor escalator etiquette drives me insane!! I hate standing still on the escalator (or the moving walkway in the airport). It's just so lazy! So get the hell out of my way!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Also agree on the Kitchen-Aid mixer love. Oh, I heart that machine.

  9. Perhaps the person on the subway in the down coat is a Southerner who's visiting NYC.

    My family was up there over Thanksgiving. It was in the 50s-60s. I was comfortable in my lighter-weight jacket and a scarf, but my stepmom was in a knee-length puffy down number. With a faux fur hood.

    It was embarrassing. She stood out like a touristy sore thumb.

    Also, tuna + cheese = yak! I think the same thing every time I see those ads.

  10. I can't wait until I have a kitchen-aid mixer of my very own. May have to splurge and buy one well before I talk a walk down the aisle ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. About the weather, I'm one of those people that never checks before I head out the door in the morning. Many times have I been caught dressing too warm or not warm enough. Or without an umbrella in a torrential downpour.

  12. A kitchenaid sounds so lovely. I really hope to get the one off my registry! I think it would make baking SO much easier. And especially making frosting. That is what I think about. Oh, and you are so right about escalators. That is annoying.

  13. Kitchenaids are amazing! My parents gave me one for Christmas and I used it all vacation and now every time I bake I think about how much I miss it. Of course they won't ship it to me because they want to insure I move back to California soon. :p
