I'm a sucker for EXTREME new drinks
This morning I was giving runstaverun a ride into work, and stopped off at Quick Check to grab lunch for class later on. While my roast beef, horseradish, mozzarella, and mushroom sub was being toasted I nabbed some coffee. As I've touched upon before in this journal, I'm a sucker for new products. If something says new on it, I'll have to try it at some point, even if it was trotted out a year or two before. But there were some disturbing new flavors... A Q104.3 (local classic rock station) Jim Kerr (DJ on it) coffee, and a coffee promising to taste like some sort of complicated pastry. Trying to decide between drinking an old man's melted remains and a pastry, runstaverun pointed out the New! EXTREME CAFFEINE pot with warning police-tape style markings all over it. I'm such a mark. Damn him for knowing me so well. So I've got an EXTREME extra large cup on my desk now, promising to beat my heart like it owes it money.

Last night I found myself humming Twisted Sister for no reason intermittently. Whether I was playing WoW, reading economic history, or just wasting time on the web - a medley of metal escaped from my throat. Could have been worse, I could have been rocking out to Widowmaker in my subconscious. I only blame myself, as I had referenced Warning: Parental Advisory in conversation earlier in the day.

EDIT:jenniever, you need to kill dickardo.

I thought it was bad but he even hates sauerkraut!

Feeling: sleepy sleepy

I sort of miss Quick Chek from living in Jersey back in the day.

That's why I love central Jersey. Quick Chek and Wawa in one place, best of both worlds.

There's nothing like Quick Chek at three in the morning.

Ah yes. Quick Check: Because It's Open at This Ungodly Hour.

I've asked runstaverun this, but he just lies, how "round the clock" is Boston? One thing I really don't like about most areas is the 9-5 nature of the towns. Here there's 24hr CVSes, Quick Cheks, White Castles, plenty of after hour clubs, and tons of diners open around the clock. Most other regions I've visited, it seems that everything just dies at a certain hour.
dosboof From: dosboof Date: March 23rd, 2006 11:48 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
Most places are dead by 11 on weeknights. Most bars close at 1. On weekends, restaurants and stores will be open till midnight for the most part. Chinese places will be open until 2, which is also when last call is. There used to be a place called Deli Haus that was open until like 4, but it closed down years ago.

As for genuine 24-hour facilities, there's a 24-hour CVS near my house. And... uh... that's probably it. Even most grocery stores close down.

but you've got Cumberland Farms up there, and an occasional white hen pantry, and store24...
dosboof From: dosboof Date: March 23rd, 2006 08:15 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
White Hen is so much better than Store 24, which, contrary to its name, closes pretty damned early.

Woah, right down the road from where I work (which is probably why you mentioned it). I've only been there a few times since I broke up with the girl who I was constantly fighting with and apologizing bearing her favorite Starbucks treat.

Congrats to him, and I'll have to stop by there sometime - not that I know what he looks like. :-)

That was hardly a non sequitur, no worries! I work in Madison, he works in madison, and I mentioned coffee. The only way it could be more relevant is if he worked in the lab that developed the Extreme Caffeine coffee for Quick Chek after being a session musician for Dee Snider's latest project, and had plans to assassinate dickardo with a pickle through the forebrain.

Wait, What?

I thought I was supposed to hire him. Not kill him.


Or was it that I was hired to kill him? Now I've confused myself.

Re: Wait, What?

The guy hates sauerkraut and pickles, and doesn't have a good reason. At least with ham, he had a traumatic experience at a wedding when he was eight or so, but he hates some of your favorite food! The sauerkraut and pineapple diet won't work for him!
jenniever From: jenniever Date: March 23rd, 2006 10:54 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

Oh.

He's allowed to hate whatever he wants. Lots of people don't like sauerkraut.

I don't like chocolate and you haven't killed me. And that's not even half as universal as sauerkraut. Let up on the kid.

Re: Oh.

But he doesn't like:
  • Ham
  • Mustard
  • Vinegar
  • Corned beef
  • Oil
  • Pickles
  • "Exotic" foods
He just RECENTLY branched into whole wheat bread.

I love dickardo, don't get me wrong. I love him so much I want to enrich his life. By any means necessary.

Maybe I could lock shmivejournal, dickardo, and vitaman in a room with interesting food from around the world. They'd be reduced to trying new things - or cannibalism. That would be a hilarious video tape, to boot.
jenniever From: jenniever Date: March 23rd, 2006 11:03 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

Re: Oh.

Don't put shmivejournal in any enclosed space and let him know there is a functional camera. You know that could never be good for those enclosed in the space with him.

Re: Oh.

Errrr, what do you mean by that?

OMFG they're playing an awesome live version of Iron Maiden's Wrathchild on Sirius right now. Nice.

Re: Oh.

Oh, I forgot to mention: I also don't like salad dressing. I do like salad, I just eat it dry.

I can keep listing more and more food that I don't like, if you really want. Like alfredo sauce, or green and red peppers, or onions.

And why am I either going to be assassinated by jenniever or locked in a room with other palate-challenged individuals? Can't we all just order some General Tsos from Chinatown and get along?

As I've explained earlier, I really don't like vinegar... or anything that includes vinegar really, like pickles or sauerkraut.

My GF lives in the Boke now, I have Referenced her to Rue de Jardin which she now loves. You have done excellent advertising for this fien restaurant.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: March 28th, 2006 11:31 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

Awesome, glad to hear!

They jacked up the prices recently, but they're still awesome.

I also recommend La Isla, the little hole in the wall Cuban joint down near the Town Hall. Great drinks, great flan, and some wonderful sandwiches.

Re: Awesome, glad to hear!

Yeah, we noticed the increased price this weekend. What corner is La Isla on?
kingfox From: kingfox Date: March 29th, 2006 04:57 am (UTC) (Hard link)

Re: Awesome, glad to hear!

One of the most useful sites for a resident in Hoboken: Kannekt. Helpful links to all sorts of services, listings of most businesses, and user reviews of them all.

La Isla's just north of 1st on Washington, on the West side of the road.
