My day so far, yay/boo style...
  • Boo for the Petit Juror jury duty phone line saying I had to show up early this morning at the Hudson County Courthouse in jersey_city.
  • Boo for not being able to do WC with graye and the rest of bluemurloccult, as a result.
  • Yay for at least having a laptop from work so I could sit in the room waiting with coffee and intarweb.
  • Boo for having to transfer lines on the way to redvector's stop.
  • Yay for passing his White Castle on the way to the courthouse, knowing I could hit that for lunch.
  • Boo for long lines at the security checkpoint.
  • Boo for long lines in the jury gathering room.
  • Boo for being told that they never got the form I mailed before leaving for Canada, and having to fill it out again.
  • Boo for being told that I have to fucking come back at a later date.
  • Boo for scheduling it as soon as possible and then overlapping with Ozzfest by mistake.
  • Boo for not realizing this until I was driving into work, after taking two PATH rides and walking all around the_boke again back to my apartment.
  • Boo for having to call them and explain that I need to reschedule again.
  • Yay for Rue de Jardin ice coffee.
  • Yay for not having to sit in a room all day.
  • Yay for not having to go in early tomorrow.
  • Boo for having to do this all over again.
  • Yay for maybe being able to do WC tonight.
  • Yay for Bruce Dickinson.

Feeling: frustrated frustrated
Listening to: Bruce Dickinson, Abduction

White Castle?

Oh, man...that is fucking gross.

WTF?

There ain't anything better than a rat burger once in a while. A plate full of jalapeño cheeseburgers and a thick chocolate shake brings one to a state just outside of Nirvana. Harold and Kumar, good Hoboken boys, understood this.

I used to bring my dates there all the time in high school. A sack of 25 - 5 for them and 20 for me. Good times.

Re: Too late

You're mean to yourself. I think your fine.

But if you're going to play it that way:

Please don't get fatter.

Re: Too late

I need to get more cardio, lifting three times a week isn't enough.

Re: Too late

i've been telling you that since i met you.


pete scoffed at me at first. but dying of a heart attack is kind of like dying of cancer - mostly in that you die and make your family feel like crap.

it's NASTY.

I'd rather go hungry, methinks...

You're a madman

Those little nuggets of questionable meat are wonderful. Steamed with those little bits of onion that end up all over the box, consumed in a bite or two, amazing packages of meaty fun. Even the smell of a few empty boxes after a day or two gets me misty-eyed.

liquid hamburger buns are nasty.

A) As a person who doesn't like onions I'm virtually unable to eat there.

B) You cannot tell me hamburger buns that are near liquid by the time they get to you are good...I'm near vomitous thinking about those buns.

C) I'd rather eat assfingers' hand.

Re: liquid hamburger buns are nasty.

I hate Hate HATE onions. I ordered a slider without onions the only time I was at a white castle. It tasted like they served me a raw onion with a kleenex on either side. Awful.

This is easily the worst hamburger I've ever had in my life.

Also not helping is the thought that said burgers caused grocery store sweatpants diarrhea in comkilserv and chairtomorrow's uncle Tom.

Re: liquid hamburger buns are nasty.

  1. Oh, that would explain a lot. I dated an onionphobe for a while, that was hell. She couldn't stand Twizzlers either. To this day I indulge in them less, shuddering as I pass the vending machine with memories of her refusing to kiss me. When she lived in the middle of nowhere, Pennsylvania, the big event in town was the farmer's market. Right in the middle of the market was a giant stand selling sausages cooked with piles of onions, where an Amish guy would cover a bun with the mix for a reasonable price. When it was raining, and everything had to be indoors, she could only stomach half an hour or so under the tent. Everything reeked of onions. It smelled heavenly.
  2. The buns aren't that bad, or at least they aren't when I've had them. Maybe midwest White Castles have poor quality control, or they're shipped buns from out here and degrade in the truck. Or maybe I don't let them sit on the plate long enough to notice. That could be it.
  3. You know where General Grabass has put those mitts, right?

All the comments are on White Castle, not jury duty. Understandable. I was buying FROZEN White Castle hamburgers for BC once in a while here, until he was unable/unwilling to eat wheat. They were a shadow of the steamed glory of the real thing. The chocolate shakes are the best, we would go through the drive through for the shakes alone. Incomparable.

I've filled out a form for jury duty and will be on call for a year. Hopefully just for one trial. I didn't mind jury duty when I got paid anyway, it was a change of pace, and twice I was forewoman and the judge was surprised at how quick we got back with a decision, (just listen to each person and find a compromise all can live with) but here it's going to be a 55 mile commute and tying up the car to go. Luckily, BC works only 3 miles away, and there's a walking/snowmobile/bike path most of the way.
