Tonight for a snack I ate a Rootbeer Freeze and chicken rings. Yeah, that isn't a typo. They weren't chicken wings, they were chicken rings. I had originally wanted chicken nuggets, but when I ordered nuggets at Arctic Circle, the pimply voice on the other end of the intercom said "Chicken Rings?" Frankly I was a little speechless. I still don't know how I should have responded to that question. Really? Rings? That was your clever little plan? Richard said what he liked best about them was how easy they were to stack. He got 6 one on top of another, and no sign that they were going over any time soon. Stackability is apparently a very important feature in processed meats. Unfortunately, they really weren't very good, but my Rootbeer Freeze was awesome.
Last night for lack of a snack I ate a dill pickle and some whipped cream. Not together, obviously, but one after another, like courses in a fancy restaurant. So, yeah, my diet is going pretty good.

  1. The important thing is that you have it clearly defined, and you stick to it. That's what all the leading books on pertinent subjects say.

  2. Not only do they stack, but you can spin them around on your finger, or even make stacks on your finger with that nifty hole in the middle. Not as many as six though, cause the folks I know doing such things have only 4 chicken ring long fingers.

  3. I think this could be a new form of measurement. "How tall is that house?" "250 chicken rings." or maybe "Mom, when we gonna get there?" "In another 3000 chicken rings"

  4. Just so you know, my sides hurt from laughing. You remember Annie? After college apparently she took a job as the manager of round and square meats at the oscar mayer factory. That made me laugh, something seems just wrong about shaped meat.

  5. Oh wow, I laughed harder at that than I have laughed in a long time. My roommate, Kaitie, gave me a very strange look that told me to stop, but I just couldn't. I think I definitely need to get more sleep. Chicken rings? Hahahahahaha! Oh dear. Kaitie just asked me, "are you crying, or laughing?"
