Lots of Things to Write About

[a] One night at work a while ago, we were discussing things that might make it onto our menu at some point in the future, and coming up with names for them. Most of the suggestions were things hardly anybody would want to order (for example, anything with guacamole), but then I had an idea, for a crunchwrap with two tostadas, with, say, extra nacho cheese between the two, or beef or chicken or steak or bean or something else. What would the name of it be? Double Crunch Crunchwrap. Aside from being painfully redundant, it is quite feasible, and sounds like something they would have us start serving. However, instead of that, we're starting the promotion for the third iteration of the box meals on the 9th, which will come with a cheesy beefy melt (which is now supposed to be wrapped like a fajita), a hard taco, nachos and cheese, and twists. At least that stuff will fit into the box better than what we put in them now does :B

[b] Continuing with the food topic for a bit, I was able to try those new mystery Doritos while in London last week, and, to this date, have bought and eaten two bags more ;_; Not good for trying to remain fairly thin, but the chips are addicting. I could care less what the actual flavor is supposed to be, but for having avoided the same brand of chips for several years now, I quite like them <3 This particular thing doesn't have any great significance, but it just seemed interesting enough to mention.

[c] Since last time I mentioned talking to Dyno, both he and DJ have said that I need to visit them several times, whether it be at MFF or at home. I would really like to as well, but that's where the problems begin. MFF would be alot easier to get to, and would be more fun than last year for being able to hang out with them for most of the time, but it's also alot less... significant. On the other side of things, visiting them at home would keep there from being other things going on at the same time, and if I could get there and back successfully / safely would also greatly increase my odds of being able to, say, attend other furry cons without requiring help from anybody, but therein lies the problem. After a bit of searching around and asking Madius (more on that in a bit), I learned that getting there by Greyhound would be the easiest option, but there are still so many questions for that. Just as an example, is crossing the border by bus the same as going by car, or is that the sort of thing where you would submit your passport and other identification in advance, so as to avoid delays for everybody on the bus? Also, he (Dyno) made one request that could only be accommodated at his place, and if I'm going to seriously look into visiting them, I'd prefer to do everything of that sort all during the same trip.

Aside from all of those, I've been playing Cave Story on my PSP for a few days now (on and off), and just earlier tonight beat the "final" bosses, and am at the entrance to the Sacred Grounds. Therefore, this entry is going to be done so I can try to get through the third room of that area again, and also because I've written about all the things that were on my mind. I sort of want to go to bed right now too, because I've been up since 11:30 (due to everybody pounding on my door for me to hook the internet back up for them), but meh. If I wait until 6 this way, I'll get an even better sleep, and there's always something to do~
