Books and Sonic
So we were coming home from a shopping trip two weeks ago and I glance across from our freeway exit only to have my eyes bug out of my head. I do my famous Linda Blair impression and squeal out, "We have a Sonic?!"
After flinching from the shriek GG glances over and nods, "I guess so". My hunny bunny is a commuter. Technically since it takes me 30 minutes most mornings to get to work, I am too. However, since my commute is half the distance, in the opposite direction, and is through town, I don't get on the freeway.
In other words for the last several months as the very large SONIC was constructed, my beloved who drove by it 5 days a week for about three months, did not mention a very large new eating establishment going up smack in the middle of our 'restaurant row'.
It's not that I'm a huge Sonic fan. I haven't even been to a Sonic in years. However, I can't believe a huge new building and development went up and he drove by it almost every day without mentioning it. Even once. I'm just sayin'...
Anyway said new Sonic opened today. Shmoo wanted to eat there.
Yeah, had we waited in the car line we might expect to get in long about Christmas. We decided to skip it and went to In-n-Out Burger instead. Yeah, so not on the diet plan. I even ate some french fries. Not many, but still.
In other news...
I got all the books I was looking for today. Well except for the Linda Howard which apparently didn't release today. I don't think. I scoured that store and couldn't find it anywhere. The line at Customer Service was too long for me to wait in since the line to check out was very long also. After a long day at work I couldn't bear dealing with both of those lines.
Besides I was still on a high having found SAM'S CREED by Sarah McCarty. Yippee skippy doo-dah day! Can't wait to read that one.
Here's the other books I bought.
Pretty cool, huh? Anybody else have a happy book buying day?
