…dary. In fact, it should be posted in Orange.
So a couple of judges of mine come from an event in San Diego to drop some stuff off at my house and I figure I should at least take them out to dinner. Problem is that it’s already 10 and what’s decent that’s still open? In and Out Burger. Good dinner with a good conversation about the event and such. However, we were kinda itching for desert so I recommended Yogurtland, and off we went.
I drive into the parking lot and it’s crowded. Mind you, it’s 11pm at night. So we start waiting at the Disney ride sized line. I swear, the thing should have little posts saying “you are 30 minutes away from getting a delicious yogurt treat.”
We contemplated why there were so many people in line. I mean the yogurt must be hand stirred and must be composed of liquified angels or something. The entire time, we’re standing and standing in line just slowly moving at a snail’s pace.
We finally get to the entrance of the store and one of my judges goes, “man, this better not be a Disney line trick where there’s an extra back room that you have to wait through.”
Thing is, it almost looked like it. I was desperately wanting some kind of funny video like they have at the Space Mountain Rides, or even an instructional video on how to maximize your yogurt value.
So, we’re still standing, and we’re really close to the yogurt pumping stations when I realize that homeboy in a Varsity Tennis Hoodie Sweatshirt has sat down in front of us. I found that ridiculous. You’re in High School and you play a varsity sport and you’re sitting down because you’re tired of waiting in line? Are you jk?
So I bring this up to him, totally out of the blue. His response? “Blah Blah Blah, excuse excuse excuse.” and then the kicker.
“I asked if she would sit on my lap.”
He’s referring to I assume his date, which was in my estimation, was within his league.
However, the look she gave him as soon as he said that line was burning. It was like “You had a chance, but man, you totally blew it with that line.” My judges were basically hiding behind me snickering, because with my outgoing personality, they never can really tell what I’m going to do. They too had realized that this guy had blown it.
It was another awkward 3-4 minutes until we got to the yogurt pumping stations, which had classic lines like “Don’t eat from the pump.”
There was about 10 different flavors and about 40 different toppings to enjoy. I had just regular vanilla, chocolate and some chocolate chips. My judges had some odd fruit concoctions, with one of them trying a bunch of different fruit toppings. We took our yogurt outside to enjoy and dug into our treats. Mine was just okay, and not made out of liquefied angels like I had hoped. The judge who got the different fruit toppings said a lot of them were good but you could definitely tell which ones were fresh cut and which ones were frozen. We all finished our yogurts though.
After eating the yogurt though, I realized I still like Golden Spoon Yogurt better and that waiting for 45 minutes through a line for substandard yogurt was probably not a good use of time.
So I was in Vegas recently with one of my coordinators (Let’s call him Rod) , and having finished the conference for the day, we decided to go out to eat. It is Vegas after all. I decide that we should go to the Bellagio Buffet since it was close and it’s pretty much one [...]
So I was in Vegas recently with one of my coordinators (Let’s call him Rod) , and having finished the conference for the day, we decided to go out to eat. It is Vegas after all. I decide that we should go to the Bellagio Buffet since it was close and it’s pretty much one of the best buffets in town.
So we wait in about a 35-40 minute line, all the while Rod was checking his voicemail and I was checking Baseball and Basketball scores. We get to the front and I pay for the Buffet (35 a person) and get our seats. We get out and start getting some plates together.
My courses included
First Plate: Sushi, Crab Legs, Smoked Salmon
Second Plate: Herb Encrusted Prime Rib, Lamb, Jasmine Rice.
Third Plate: Veal (Dry), Salmon cooked on an Oak Plank (Smokey)
Fourth Plate: Assorted little items
Dessert: Creme Brulee, Low Fat Cheesecake, Sorbet
So I feel I got my money’s worth. What did Rod get?
3 kinds of Soup
Never again. That’s really all I have to say…
