Wow, life is really hard right now. I mean, it is sucking big time. I try to stay positive and hopeful but then crap happens.
Now I am trying to get some festive fun in there too so I took a second to stop by Starbucks for their Peppermint Mocha and it was way better than I was expecting. Normally peppermint products are harsh but this was sweet, chocolatey and reminded me of a Christmas truffle. Thank you Starbucks for not sucking.
As we were waiting for prescriptions to be filled from medical crap we stopped by McDonald’s for lunch. It was that or sushi (that is our hood) and Reg does not eat sushi so… I ordered the Jolly Burger.
Which was over $5! I also got a peppermint hot chocolate. I wanted to feel Christmasy damn it!
The bun was dry. The patty was uber-dry. If there were caramelized onions I did not notice them. The peppercorn sauce was just OK but there was not enough. I hated this burger.
The peppermint hot chocolate was mediocre. Reg found it quite strong and overpowering. I found it uninspiring. Starbucks was much better.
I was at the hospital before dawn this morning in horrible pain. I had to cancel all my holiday fun this week. They are cutting power to our apartment for 8 hours coming up so I will be forced out of my home with a sore back. I am filled with fear about life in 2016 and really, REALLY need for life to get just a tad better.
I have over one week to turn things around before my brother and Dad show up for Christmas. I will try my best to get into the holiday foodie spirit because nobody wants to hang out with this Grinch, especially me!
