Lunch Specials

with one comment

I know the food lovers amongst you will gasp with culinary distaste but I just wanted to give a shout out to the fast food places that are doing days with special prices. I’ve blogged (or maybe tweeted) before about the Popeye’s special – every Tuesday, two pieces of chicken are just $1.29. Today I found out by accident that Burger King has Whopper Wednesdays where a combo is just $2.99.

I need to find some more deals like this – and I know Subway has the $5 foot long but I’d rather eat the cash then that crap (rich, I know, coming from someone who ate at BK).

Travel Round Up

without comments

I am finally done with the crazy travel of the last couple of weeks, and as much as I usually love to travel you won’t find me getting in a plane any time soon (unless it’s me at the controls). In the last 2.5 weeks I have flown on 11 flight legs, landing in Baltimore, New York, Phoenix, San Diego, Los Angeles, London, and Amsterdam. My business trip to Europe included just over 24 hours of actual flying time (plus who knows how much time waiting in airport lounges) but I spent only 21 hours in a work office or meeting!

Anyway, we had a really good time in New York and there may be some posts on that later. In the meantime, if you missed them you can check out some photos here and here.

Not much to report from the London and Amsterdam visits, least not much that isn’t prohibited by an NDA, but I did take a few snaps of my hotel and some of Amsterdam city. You can see these here.

So no more travel for a while, I think, though if I had gotten back from Europe a day or two earlier I probably would have been going to Seattle today for 2 days for some more meetings. I am definitely glad I am not.
