Last night it happened like it usually does...I got a craving for something sweet, but it was late and I didn't want to go to the liquor store for ice cream where all of the bums hang out..so i decided to get something from the safety of my car. After watching the episode of 30 Rock where Selma Hayek introduces Alec Baldwin to McFlurries, I've been craving the dessert myself. But to my shock and dismay, the McDonald's by my house was closed for renovations! SHOCK
I thought, "there's a Mickey D's every Square mile, I'll find another one." So, at 9:30 P.M., I found myself driving down 17th, then making a left on Irvine, and ended up driving all the way to the John Wayne Airport! The combination of driving a granny rental Chevy Impala and sugar withdrawals caused my delusional journey. I hopped on the 73, then 55 and remembered there was another McD's on Harbor and Wilson. But what do you know? apparently EVERY one is going through a remodel. Just when I was about to give up all hope, an America's Cup shined through my discouraged demeanor and I got my damn dessert.
PHEW. In other news, I've found my floral keffiyeh scarves to be the hot item right now, so I will spend the rest of the day completing more of those, as well as some inexpensive original arts and prints. I've got a roller derby show to prepare for!
I'll leave one last bit of beauty: while on the phone with Roark (the master artist), he introduced me to Ashes and Snow, whose artist captures unique moments of interaction between humans and wild animals. The music along with the presentation of the books in the store are just breathtaking.
