Don’t mess with my pizza! – I love pizza. It’s my all-time favorite food. If the crust is good (no thin cracker crust for me please), I’m not fussy. This week we had it twice – once for a quick lunch and later in the week for an impromptu dinner. Both sucked big time. Two different places and they both burned it. The cheese was cremated. That alters both the flavor and texture and not for the good. How can you screw up pizza? At the pizza shop where we ate lunch, I have returned my slice a few times for being overheated (that’s a nicer word for burned). The other was a delivery that we didn’t look at until the guy had left. That won’t happen again. Question to pizza shop owners – How can you serve a burned pizza? It goes in the trash!
When it rains, it pours – Every year I stretch and take a guest post on another blog. This summer I did two and both were published this week. As a part of guesting etiquette, I respond to comments left by readers. I forgot how active this can get when you are bouncing between sites and comments. Thanks to all of you who took the time to follow me on my journey and thanks to the bloggers who allowed me to squat on their site.
Speaking of blogging – There are all kinds of followers. Some hover, never actively commenting but visiting occasionally. All good. There are the regulars who contribute as much with their comments as I do with the post. Then there are the shameless beggars. Those are the ones that “follow” and put one comment on a post, never to be seen again. The comment is along the lines of “nice one, please check out my blog at (insert long link) and follow me.” When the begging is longer than the responsive comment, it’s weird.
When my fantasy world and my energy collide – We are getting together with family today. It’s a small gathering and it’s specifically a “no work” get together. We talked about pizza or something else equally easy. The host is a great cook and decided to get creative. Whatever is being served takes three days to make. It sparked my creative side. I flitted from one side to another debating on what to make and take. At the end of the day, I’m staying with simple. It’s one of my Mom’s recipes but one of her simple ones. In my head I can see me making some exciting dishes but my energy says “what are you thinking?” And no it’s not pizza. After this week’s pizza disasters, I need recovery time.
Yikes! – There are two words to describe this week’s weather – swamp ass!
So how was your week?
