1.) This morning on my way to work I heard "It's the End of the World as We Know it" for about the 5th time in 3 days. I'm taking it as a sign and tomorrow I will begin my End of the World Diet, which consists of nothing but Thrifty's Rocky Road ice cream. I know that everyone thinks that the best Thrifty's flavor is Chocolate Malted Crunch, and that's fine, it's a great flavor. But you're all wrong. Rocky Road is the superior ice cream.
Question: What are your top three favorite Thrifty's ice cream flavors? And for those of you who don't know what Thrifty's ice cream is, how will you go on living?
2.) Katie made this soup last night and gave me some left overs for lunch. When I got home from work I felt nigh unto death and so I took a little nap and got up and had some of that soup and I instantly felt 50% better, which is to say I was in the same neighborhood as death but not right next door. The soup was just as delicious and spirit-reviving in leftover form.
Question: Do you prefer brothy soups or chowdery soups? If you're not a fan of soup, why are we friends?
3.) I went to Rite-Aid on my lunch break to get an envelope so I can mail Andrea her apron and I noticed that they have their Easter candy out. (Side note: Does anyone know when Easter is? I don't even know if it's in March or April this year.) There is something wonderful about rows and rows of brightly colored Peeps.
Question: If you could only have one Easter candy in your basket what would it be?
4.) We test all of our clerical applicants on filing, math, spelling and grammar and everyone does great on the first three. But nearly everyone BOMBS the grammar test. And I would say that 90% of those who take it get #12 wrong: "Ira invited Ken and (A-I, B-me) to attend the meeting." Including the person who did the answer sheet because it originally said the answer was A. When we all know the answer is B-me. Well, I read this article today and now I think I'll tell everyone who gets it wrong that even our dear president would too. You know, if his current job doesn't work out and he happens to be looking for long-term temporary clerical or medical employment in the greater Los Angeles area. I actually don't think this is the worst grammar mistake a person can make. In fact, it's a pretty common one. The question that really bothers me is #19: "He has already (A-ate, B-eaten) dinner." If it's down to two candidates with similar qualifications, I will probably give the job to the person who got that question right.
Question: Does this make me a Grammar Snob? And if so, do you still like me?
