But sometimes that IS what I'm talking about!

Oh, Cynthia. When I said your dress was really cool, especially for 1994, I didn't mean that YOU were old and therefore it was astonishing that your dress was cute. I meant that 1994 was a horrifying year of fashion. Tommy Hilfiger plaid shirts, worn untucked and hanging down to your mid thighs, tapered ankle jeans, doc martens, and let us not forget, the year of the "Rachel." Its not you, its 1994.

Moving on, the lady that I work with had gastric bypass surgery last Tuesday morning. Right now, she can only drink 1 oz. of liquid every 20 minutes. Can you imagine? Thats like one of those little cough syrup tiny cup things. And only liquids for now- chicken broth, water, and sugar-free popsicles and jello. Crazy times.

I remember when my dad got a car phone. I think I was in 7th or 8th grade and, at the time, it seemed so bizarre. Remember when "My Best Friend's Wedding" came out and Julia Roberts was always talking on that stupid, bulky cell phone? It was still new-ish then, for people to be stuck to their cellular devices. Before cell phones, I used to know everybody's number. When I was growing up, until I went to college, I just dialed my friends on my land line. How many numbers did I have stored in my head?
Now? I know probably 3 people's numbers. I rely on my phone book in my cell phone, we don't even have a stinking land line. Unfortunately, I lose my cell phone every 2 to 3 days for a minimum of 24 hours, so that doesn't work out so well.

There are no Sonic's in Erie. I thought it was AMERICA'S drive in, c'mon!

Random post exhausted.

Gastric by-pass is the mother of all nightmares. You just might as well put me 6 ft under

Completely understand phone thang. We have moved so much that I find myself combining phone numbers and area codes from different states. I still don't know my own cell # that I have had for 3 years. I carry a card in my purse with all my information in case I forget where I live.

I have a sonic just down the street. I don't really ever eat there but I do like a Cherry Limeade now and again (diet of course). Have to save up the calories for the good stuff. I think I am in the land of Sonic....didn't it originate in AR??? ugh, kind of like Suckmart, I mean Walmart.

Oh my gosh, I just realized I am becoming obnoxious obsessive stalking poster that is posting on everything. You should do a blog about that. Please forgive!

I love the comments. Its nice to have people commenting though - so keep on doing it "obsessive foodie or food addict you decide" dont worry cam .. its not a deal breaker. I used to work there (really.. I know it sounds like a joke.. this is no joke) so I am all sonic-ed out for the next few years.

I had gastric bypass surgery... for some people, they think it's the easy way out but it's actually really difficult.

PA really lacks Sonic's. I'm currently living in Kansas City, MO and there are more Sonic's here than McDonald's. They are popping up everywhere. Sonic has the best drinks... and there little ice pellets make this compulsive ice chewer quite happy!
