Culinary Dropout in Scottsdale

I have enjoyed every dish I've ever eaten at the Culinary Dropout. The hot pretzles and fondue are my absolute favorite.  The Moscow Mule is delicious (although they stopped serving it in a copper cup because apparently, get this, people steal the cups).  WTH? 

Anyway, while Culinary Dropout is one my favorite places to eat, my attempt to enjoy the Italian Wedge salad yesterday was a total bust. 

First, not a wedge of lettuce.  Not even iceburg lettuce.

Second, the peppers far out numbered the cheese, meat and olives overwhelming my taste buds. 

However, the oregano vinaigrette was delicious!

Just another day in paradise

Today I had to take the dog to the vet. The dog, who is an otherwise normal animal, decided once she was in the car, that would be the perfect time to poo. Everywhere. And I was on the freeway, so it's not like I could pull over and clean it up. Needless to say, the Vet staff gave me some paper towels and a garbage bag. And a very wet towel. Then I drove to the store and bought some Resolve pet stain remover carpet cleaner and Fabreez. There are no stains in my carpet. But my car still reeks. The husband will need to clean the back carpet tonight with the machine. /whining about my life.

Headphones are not all equal

At Christmas time I was looking for some really good headphones for my daughter because occasionally she plays the DJ at school during dances. She wanted a particular type of headphones and I couldn’t find them anywhere. Instead, I went online and began searching and I stumbled across Stanton headphones, which appear to be quite good and so that’s what I got her. And then, the first concert of the year she lost them. So luckily, I saw an ad recently that said save on Stanton headphones and that made the fact that she lost them just a little easier to take.

Imaginary Planning

I’ve said before that I consider North Carolina one of the top places on my list of things to see before I die. And if I like a place, I start to look at what it would cost to actually live there, full time, because I am not wedded to the scorching desert where I currently reside. Anyway, I was browsing about North Caroling websites totaling the cost of living and the like, and I realized I needed to check on insurance. I found one site, Don Allred insurance Burlington NC and realized that I could actually do this. If I had a job. And a house. And my kids were up for it. You know, the formalities.
