the right way to eat bad food

ever since my lunch buddy left me, i’ve been eating really bad food.  mcdonalds, togos, and the like are all staples of my diet.  today was no different, i went to go eat at mr. chau’s.

for those of you who aren’t familiar with mr. chau’s, it is a fast food chinese restaurant with food pre-made and waiting for you to eat it.

here are a few guidelines when eating at a place like mr. chau’s:

  1. only frequent such a place during the peak lunch hours.  this will ensure that you have the freshest food made with the high turnover.  there is nothing worse than cold bad chinese food.
  2. avoid the fried food.  i know it might SEEM like it tastes good, but the oil that they fry the food in is nasty.  trust me, it might taste good the first few bites, but you’ll regret it later.  try their stir fry or the vegetables, they actually aren’t that bad.
  3. eat only enough to make yourself full, do not overeat.  eating too much bad food is just asking for punishment.

i had the black pepper chicken and some stir fry vegetables.  it was pretty decent.

a small dose

that’s all we get for the show how i met your mother.  one episode and another break for a while.  what a bummer.  i am really enjoying this show, but the 30 minute episodes are just too short.

now what is going to happen?  are ted and robin going to be able to make ammends?  will ted eve get robin?

in this week’s episode, ted (who is currently dating a girl) finds out that robin (a girl who he has been crushing after) is interested in him.  he immediately wants to pursue things with her, but the dilemma is that he still has a girlfriend.  he lies to robin about breaking up with the girlfriend and they start to make out.  but then it is revealed that he is still dating her and robin gets pissed and ted leaves.

robin is the love of ted’s life.  he knows it and he just blew it with her.  i’m sure that we have all had a robin in our life.  the one that we never thought we could have a chance with, but then something happens and your window of opportunity opens.

i can’t wait for the next episode.
