Z Only Eats E

You know what kills you during the holiday season? It's not the parties, cookies and overflowing candy bowls. It's the meal on the fly junk food you pick up while shopping and running errands. Tonight I had L*ng John Silvers for the first time in ten years. It is criminal what those people do to shellfish. But hushpuppies, oh my. For hushpuppies I am willing to forgive.
Best thing I heard tonight. I was in a sporting goods store and this guy was on his phone. He was describing gloves that you wear under other gloves. I'm thinking yeah, yeah they wick away moisture. Then he says into the phone, "You know, like the one Michael Jackson wore." The sad part is I know a company that makes cold weather liner gloves that are sparkly, it never occurred to me before that they were a pop icon.
I've wrapped all my angel tree gifts and co-worker gifts. I spent an hour in Target trying to print out pictures. The machine ran out of paper and ribbon. But that's not the worst part. It's the people. The ones in front of me who couldn't understand why their wrinkled black and white photo still looked like crap when they printed out the scanned version. I had to explain to them that it was a photo printer not a magic rainbow factory.
