Yesterday my lady and I were much too tired/lazy to cook to we decided to order Chinese food. I usually get orange chicken, but last night I decided to venture out of my comfort zone and find something else to satisfy my voracious appetite. I decided to order shrimp with lobster sauce. I had a taste for seafood, and I wanted something creamy to go with it, so I thought this was the perfect combination. When my food arrived, I noticed no cream, lots of shrimp, and soup. Apparently in the Chinese food world, sauce equals soup, and I had no clue. This place also forgot to deliver an order of rice my lady requested, so she called to request the rice and to get clarification on this lobster sauce that had magically turned to soup. She informed my lady that this was indeed the correct order, and so I asked my lady to ask them why isn't it called soup, but we got no coherent answer. Then I asked if they could just re-deliver some orange chicken since because 1)it was cheaper than the magical soup/sauce I was stuck with and 2)they had to re-deliver the rice any damn way. They told me I couldn't do it, because I had already ordered the soupsauce. In other words, they were just too lazy..just as I had been when I started this damn journey for food. How's that for symmetry? So I drained all the soupsauce, mixed in rice, and ate shrimp/lobster/veggie combo that way, and it had my stomach hurting INSTANTLY. The lesson here? just come home and cook some damn food.

It would make me extremely happy, if you would say a prayer for my number one mancrush. He just came off a brilliant victory on Monday, and it turns out the whole time he had two leg fractures that will require surgery and extensive rest, which means he won't play until next year. /So this basically means I will be watching one less sport until next year. I'll be sending a giant, get-well card to each and every one of you, and when you get it, please show your love to Tiger.

If you are in the DC area, and you need something to do, come support my man Brandon's party. As per the usual, the probability of me actually attending is 50%.

I agree with can't try new stuff in delivery, mannnn. Stick with what you know until you're in the restaurant and can see the pretty pictures....hahahahaa.

Oh less sport for you to watch until next year. What in the world will you do with alllllll that free time (since golf takes like 30 days to finish a tournament...hahahahaha)??
