Today I'd like to talk about ... tacos. Why do they get such a bad rap? They're essentially lettuce, tomato, maybe some avocado, maybe some beans, and cheese. What's not healthy about that? I just walked back home from a grueling day and I think this can of Pepsi (which I rarely drink) and taco are saving my life. I want to marry this taco.

How was your day? lol

I love tacos as long as it's big, fat, and it tastes good. But one problem that I usually find with tacos is that they're usually too small whenever I buy them from fast food restaurants like Taco Bell. Prices goes up but the taco gets smaller. The last time I went to Taco Bell, I want to tell the cashier upfront that I want the the taco in the same size as the one in poster. One alternative is for me to make my own tacos. Even though I get the size that I prefer, it never tastes as good as the ones I buy at restaurants.

Luckily, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I had to wake up even earlier at 5am to be at work at 7am for a special training session. But since I was in training, I didn't have to answer any phone calls for most of the day. And since I started work early, I got to leave earlier.

How was your 4th of July? Did you see any fireworks?

Oh lord ... before you think I'm marrying a meal that doesn't deserve me, I am SO (so so so) not talking about Taco Bell. Actually haven't ordered from there in about 12 yrs, lol. Their food just looks dangerous. No, this is Tex Mex. And making your own tacos is like making your own pizza. Just not the same to me.

I'm with you there. I love meetings at work cause I just have to listen and it feels like a break.

Um, I seem to have spent my 4th of July on this year.

Taco Bell is dangerous but I love it. Same with Jack in the Box. Just to be honest, I haven't ate there in years.

I was planning on doing the same but ended up spending the day with a good friend.

Did you hear about how the annual fireworks show in San Diego went off all at the same time by accident? What was supposed to be a 18 minute show became only 15 seconds.

^ Not a small hiccup at work when your mistake literally lights up the whole sky.

Awww, since you said it does not come from Taco Bell, you have my blessing too
Tacos are amazing and it's funny that you mentioned it yesterday since it was National Taco Day in here Man, now I'm hungry again



I wish you all could be here so I could take you to this amazing taco stand close to my house ...although maybe you have those in NY too, don't you?

You know, I realized that if we make it the 5-year Anniversary Month, people could send stuff all through July, duh! I'm gonna set and prep the thread this weekend, then. Rachel, wait for a PM from me tonight

TFTNT, btw! I have not seen The Amazing Spider-Man because I'm so broke...I can't even pay attention But I definitely wanna see it soon.

Wow, you're kidding. Holy crap. We have equally silly holidays. I think Monday was like national sunglasses day or something. That's an interesting taco. I didn't know radishes were ever part of the deal.

Well, aren't you lucky. Um ... there are a few in NYC, yes. I sent you a pic of that red truck once, remember? lol Cause I couldn't believe it myself. There's actually a "gourmet" taco stand by Madison Square Park now. But mainly it's just hot dogs, ice cream, and Pakistani food. Then every once in a while, something real unexpected like a creative falafel truck, schnitzel (German pork chops), cupcakes, and omg, "waffles and dinges", which is like Belgian waffles with all the fixings. That's new.

May have to PM people too.
