Why is Life Cold?

i actually have a very happy life. i just saw this graphic one day and got an inspiration for another blog. why not write about the stuff that makes life cold? from the huge, catastrophic, life-altering events to the seemingly trivial, little incidents that rub you the wrong way. it doesn't have to be a personal experience, it can be something observed.

on writing these down, my intent is to learn to appreciate life more and have a better handle on things when life throws you a curve ball. i want whoever will read this to contemplate, not get depressed. hopefully, you'll share with me your experiences as well so we can learn from each other.

p.s. it doesn't always have to be cold

Lobster Lust

The other night I saw the Red Lobster commercial on TV and I suddenly got a hankering for lobster. Since I don't know of any decent lobster places around here and hubby and I don't like going to the city, I dragged him and my mom to Red Lobster for dinner tonight.

They both suspect my craving is due to the fact that I'm infanticipating, but I really was just enticed by the commercial. And from Philippine folklore, I thought preggy craving meant for something weird like salty bananas or blue mangoes. I told them it's too early for that, and then slipped my husband a look that said "we better get going with that baby-making business soon".

Since I haven't been to Red Lobster in about five years, I was surprised by two things. First, that sucker was expensive! I thought it would be in the Olive Garden or Applebee's range, but their entrees were $20 and higher. And of course I had to get The Ultimate Feast, because I had to have me lobster! Second, the food was actually good. Red Lobster has been getting a lot of flak for their "fresh" food. I know it's one of Jay Leno's favorite monologue victims. So I was pleasantly surprised with the quality. The shrimp were so-so, but the lobster and crab me liked.

My meal was served with a ladle of drawn butter, so when we got home I made a beeline for the bathroom. Nope, I didn't get cold tonight, but sick instead. My tummy's still scowling at me as I type this. Hmmm, maybe Red Lobster does deserve the flak. Oh well, I had a good experience, so I'll definitely be back.

In about five years.
