Brenternet (The World as seen by Brent Moore)

Trying to appeal to the highest common denominator. I can't give you 110% effort, but I will give you 107.4% effort. If you're a spammer and leave me a comment, I will make fun of you. I use twice as many semicolons compared to most other bloggers

Cheesecake Factory and more

Links to this post

About a month ago I had a chance to go to the new pride of Green Hills, the Cheesecake Factory. Since it was a Saturday night for dinner, that means I'm still waiting for a table. Not really, but when we arrived, we were informed that the wait would be 55 to 70 minutes. I hate it when wait times more closely resemble speed limits.

The good news was this gave us time to take the factory tour. The tour guide had us get onto the 32-seat tram, and we all had safety glasses. (Chocolate sprinkles to the eye can cause more damage than you realize.) We rode past the large vats of processed cream cheese, the conveyor belts of graham cracker crust, the gears that compacted fruit toppings and the industrial turbines that mixed all of the ingredients together.

When it was done, I was able to buy a sandwich for $12.

This is just odd.
To fool myself into thinking that I'm eating healthy, often I'll order a side salad from the fast food or take out restaurant. Three times this week, I was given two packets of salad dressing for my side salad instead of one. I never ask for two. Has walking with a bad back changed my demeanor that much? I should call Art Bell.

With recent health issues, I've had a chance to catch up on a lot of TV shows. One of the all-time popular television gimmick is the "Will they, Won't they" tension between a male character and a female character and if they will ever hook up.

Despite how it used to be a straight up police procedural drama, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit has taken that turn this year. Of course the "Will they, Won't they" tension is between Det. Stabler and his wife.

If I ever open my own restaurant, I'll name the flagship item on the dessert menu Asphyxiation by Chocolate.

Unsafe Ice
Ice skating right now would be a bad idea.
