Things I Like/Dislike This Week

Things I like (this week):

  1. Swearing*
  2. My new awesome Bang & Olufsen earphones!!!!!
  3. Tingling sensations
  4. Netflix (I pretty much don't go out anymore in the evenings because of it)
  5. The weekend forecast:

Things I dislike (this week):

  1. Carson Daly, esp. now that he's all skinny
  2. The fact that there are no Taco Bells in Chicago. Where the hell are the Taco Bells?
  3. eBay. eBay should just be an auction site. I don't like how you can just buy stuff off there now without having to bid for it. That's not right.
  4. Frescatas and Coolattas. How fucking stupid. Even if I loved either one of those things, I would never order one because of the name (not to mention the fact that the Frescata has artisan bread, and we all know how much I hate artisan bread!!)
  5. My completely insane office landlord, for asking me to park my rented cargo van "further down the street." Of course I said no. So now I believe I might be taking an extended swim in the Chicago River at some point in the next few days. If I suddenly stop blogging over the next few days, you'll know why.

* Note: this is really no different than any other week.

There are Taco Bells in Chicago & as an aficionado of the establishment that makes us all want to make a run for the border, I know exactly where some are! The two that I frequent are on Clybourn just North of Fullerton and one on Clark & Addison. But, I must agree with you, mos def not enough access to the crunchwrap supreme in the metropolitan area.

I just ate taco bell! I'm in the burbs though. 2 chilupas, a taco supreme, and a carmal apple empanada. Do you have a favorite burrito place? I'm casting votes for both El Milagro on Belmont and Greenview and The Burrito House on Addison and Licoln.

I haven't been back in Chicago long enough to have found one, at least not on the North Side.

I was going to post something about me being responsible for that tingling sensation. But, I'm trying to be a good girl today.

Instead, could I interest you in some tacos?

I have no idea why that last post only says "rev" but it was me nevertheless... stupid blogger thingy

classyandfancy said...

Looking for suggestions for the best taco/burrito joint? My vote is for the Taco Train, aka La Pasadita, one of three on Ashland/Milwaukee/Division. I prefer the largest one with the yellow facade & it's open until 3 or 4am on the weekends! Delish!

Insert golf clap. A fine list. eBay should not be a buy now I totally agree. I also discovered a new evil eBAY thing looking for floor mats.. some guy that had some and said "If I don't have what you're wanting, just ask and I'll get it." Uh... I feel like asking has to be aiding and abeiting or something and I'm setting up some other poor schuck with my car to get their car broken into to.
