Merry Monday, Hairy Hipsters and Variety At Last

Good Monday morning all!  We've made it to another week, and that's something to be grateful for!

It was a decent weekend.  We're giving the dishwasher another run or two to see if it's fixed to our satisfaction.  It's like it's less noisy than it was after the other dude (actually competent) came out Friday evening but still noisier than I'd like.  I don't know if it was our placement of Gladware lids or something and the water was hitting those or what.  We're still trying to figure out the best way to load everything.  It's a process, as with everything. 

Saturday, we got up and decided on our one meal out for the day and all was going well until it wasn't.  Just as I was about to bite into my sandwich, I saw a disgusting, long hipster beard hair seared into it.  I almost hurled.  The Mr's order was wrong and we were waiting for it to be rectified when I found it and this wasn't the first time.  Now, I know it happens and I know some people can pick the hair out and still eat what's in front of them...I'm not one of those people.  I especially can't do it when they allow people with big, bushy beards to work over food with no beard net and this is the third time it's happened there.  The Mr got up and went to the server and told her about the hair and there was no way I would eat anything prepared by the same dude, we only had water up to that point, so we were leaving.  We went home, and I made him the exact same sandwich he ordered except on some leftover brioche we had, and he said it was way better than they've ever made anyway.    Just sucks we had to waste 45 minutes of our time to go through all of that.  We did some gravestone maintenance and the day seemed to suck down the drain pretty quick from there.  We got sucked into a marathon of First We Feast because a friend of ours was on an episode then it just spiraled, but it was a fun way to spend a few hours.  Jeff Goldblum is one of our faves but also worth a peep are Kevin Hart, Ken Jeong, Weird Al, and Tenacious D. 

Sunday we got up, had brunch and got in an early workout.  We did 21 Day Fix Extreme Cardio.  Holy poop balls.  So far from Beach Body on Demand, I've done 21 Day Fix (cardio), LIIFT 4 Chest and Tri's, 'Cise to Treasure (the Mr did Tai Cheng that morning) and then yesterday's 21DFX.  I want to get a feel for as many of their programs as possible up front during the trial period.  So far, I like everything I'm seeing.  I previewed Brazilan Butt Lift or something like that and it was a hard no.  The instructor super creeps me out and since I can't mute his eyes, I'm going to have to opt out.  Today I'll probably do a leg day from A Little More Obsessed the (same chick who does 21 Day Fix.)  I  have to say, my body is glad for some variety.  We've had some wicked winds with this storm and as I was typing this last night, the power went out.  It was only out for about 10-15 minutes but I've gotta say, it was nice to have a candlelit house with total silence.  Might have to schedule power outages more often.

How was your weekend?  Anything fun?

  1. I don't know why some restaurants do not require beard-nets. I used to be able to remove a hair and move on but lately I have changed to the other mindset and honestly it's also about how much some food costs these days. If you're going to ask me to pay 10 bucks for a sandwich then it's your job to make sure that sandwich is prepared in a way that prevents that kind of thing from happening in the first place.

  2. If I'm at home, and I shed and it's my hair - I can pick it out and keep eating. A stranger's though... nope. I agree with your Mr. that a piece of it is the cost and the expectation that if I'm paying that much it better be perfect and hair free. The other piece of it is just the ick factor.

    We went on Friday to see How to Train Your Dragon 3 and that was pretty much the high point of the weekend. Otherwise there was housework and a book and then it was over.

  3. Just disgusting! Blech.
    My weekend was good. Had a very good meeting Saturday morning, then we grocery shopped on a very rainy day. I got all the clothes laundry done and finished off the sheets and mattress pad on Sunday. Sunday was hellacious with the winds so aside from one trip to my friend's mailbox to drop off magazines and coupons, I stayed inside. Got my workout in and had an enjoyable day and evening. Now we're back to insanely cold temps this week so the dogs are not happy to be in booties again. Spring can come any time now....

  4. The weekend was okay. We spent the weekend away in a small town about a 2.5 hr drive away for a minor hockey tournament. The tournament was good, but the hotel was a bit of a disappointment. The hotel was dated and their hot tub was seriously broken but they are still including the feature in their advertising materials. I complained and they gave me a 20% discount off my room rates, so some positive came out of it. We called the weekend festivities short on Sunday in preparation for an advancing snow/ice storm. We didn't want to be driving home through the middle of it.

    With regards to hair in food, if it is my own or my partner's I don't really care. I can pick it out, make fun that one of us shed into the food, and keep eating. But I'll complain if I find a hair in my food at a restaurant. They have standards to keep.
