Observations from last night [Feb. 15th, 2004|03:13 pm]
The American Caliban
[Current Music |Richard Thompson-Love Is Bad For Business]

  1. Ladies! If your man takes you to the sports bar section of the Napa Valley restaurant in Costa Mesa, California for that special night, you are entitled and encouraged to place him in a Yard-a-Pult and cut loose.
  2. If you are a wonderliciously hot 19-year-old woman with legs from here to Sunday and perfect boobs and all the secret sauce, and if you say that a) you can’t wear miniskirts now because you gained 20 pounds at college and b) that you don’t get college because it seems to be all partying and shopping then you have become a STEREOTYPE and it’s time to turn back before it sticks and you turn into one of those people.
  3. This is especially true when you are saying this to the other 19-year-old woman at the table who is going to the community college and waitressing to finance it.
  4. I really like Hendrick’s gin.
  5. I also really like Goat Gouda. However, I was scared by the ancient woman in the minidress at Trader Joe’s who seized on me as I was buying it to loudly explain three times that it was excellent Dutch Goat Cheese and she knew her Dutch because her mother was Dutch and the French can’t make cheese except for cooking but the Dutch cheese was the best, and she also used to have goats.
  6. I am now sad because ranai revealed that one of the sandwiches at Panera has 2,750 mg of sodium in it.

salt sandwich

From their site it appears to be the Smoked Turkey Panini of whose marketing prose I was making fun the other day.

Everything is out of control with the salt, though. 990 mg for 8 ounces of soup etc.

Re: salt sandwich

The salt thing makes me quite sad as well. I have borderline blood pressure issues so I was stunned when I started reading labels. Beware of anything pre-cooked packaged food and anything in a can, from soup to tomato sauce. It's always better to make your own chicken soup and add your own salt because no matter how salty you like it, it will most likely still be less per serving than soup in a can. Also, "low sodium" labeled items sometimes just indicate that they are lower in sodium than their original counterparts. *sigh
