Can’t believe I’ve never seen these before. Very glad research and time is going toward important things like this.
In Sweden, we not only get spring break, we also get fall break. All of the kids are out of school and many families take a week-long trip. Our family is one of these this year. We are going south to some warmer weather for a week (hopefully – if it doesn’t rain).
I see fall break as a “last hurrah” before the harshness of winter sets in here. We do our time change this weekend, right when the break starts and by the time we get back, we could have temperatures below 0.
It’s fairly cold already and I’ve been refraining from wearing my winter jacket because I know once I put it on, I have to wear it for 6 months straight. But I’ve already decided that when we get back from fall break, I will give in. Then I will acknowledge that winter is upon us.
I’ve been having to do some food research lately for work and I came across this article on Business Insider about Taco Bell’s new “Low-end menu.”
“Taco Bell’s new “low end” menu release.
Taco Bell released a menu featuring a bunch of items for $1. At a time when McDonald’s and Wendy’s value menus are featuring more expensive items, affordability will help Taco Bell stand out. “
So, Taco Bell was previously too expensive? Yeah, that 99 cent burrito I was getting was putting me in the poor house.
C’mon people! Taco Bell barely qualifies as food. It doesn’t need to be more affordable. It needs to have a complete overhaul or possibly be shut down for being hazardous to human heath!
I brought a sandwich to work in a refrigerated bag with an ice clamp just to make sure my cheese would stay fresh.
Did I forget I live in Stockholm and it’s the end of October?
Did I forget that the office I’m working in is currently 9c (50f) each day?
Refrigerated bag – What was I thinking? You know, I had to buy that bag in Texas because other than maybe 1 month out of the year, this entire country is a refrigerator!
I think I’ll bring some ice cream to work tomorrow.
I finally broke down and starting showing my kids the other Star Wars movies. I’ve kept it down to the 3 originals, but have realized that they need to see the others to keep up with the kids at school. Tonight we watched the second in the series, “Attack of the Clones.” Comments:
“Why do they put flaming lightposts everywhere? That’s dangerous for drivers.”
“That Octopus Jedi is my favorite. Octo-go! Octo-go!”
(and commenting after I explain who the young Boba Fett is…)
“You know he’s bad because he tried to kill John Solo.”
It’s Han Solo.
“That’s right! John Solo is great!”
