I Don’t Like McDonalds Anymore

So yesterday I took my kids to get their physicals for school and they also get flu shots. They weren’t happy about the shots of course so I figured why not treat them when we were done. There’s a McDonalds in the same shopping center as the doctor’s office so I asked if they wanted to get a milkshake on the way home. I hadn’t at dinner yet, and I saw they had the McRib and thought that sounded good. Guess that’s the first thing I did wrong, thinking something from there would be good.

Anyway we go inside and the girl who’s supposed to be at the counter wasn’t there, they had to find her. Finally she comes and she’s rude as hell, I guess we disturbed her break of something. There was no one else waiting behind me but she acted like she was in a hurry. So fine whatever, deal with it I guess to make my kids happy.

The kids ordered their milkshakes and ended up getting fries as well and I ordered two McRibs. It took a while to get just these few things and we left.

I get home and opened the first McRib and it was fine, opened the second one and there was no sauce at all on it. What the hell is a McRib without the sauce, that’s what makes it right? So that was ruined, dry and rather nasty without the sauce on it.

Oh and I forgot to get a receipt, she didn’t give me one. I meant to ask but the girl was just so rude that I wanted to get my food and go home. The bill was $20 for two sandwiches, three milkshakes and three fries, it just sounds a bit high to me and I wanted to check the receipt. oh well, live and learn. Then again that might be the correct prices, it’s been a long time since I’ve been there.

Then the night and now morning today I’m paying for it. I have the worst case of heartburn and reflux I’ve had in a long time, nothing seems to be helping at all. Zantac and Prilosec don’t help, I’ve taken more than I’m supposed to at this point. I just want it to stop, the food is like sitting in my throat, at least that’s what it feels like to me, I know it can’t still be there.

That’s not all though, I’ve made five trips now to the bathroom since last night, and my stomach is rumbling still. I don’t know why I even try, it seems every time I have McDonalds it makes me sick this way. I try and stay away from there for that reason, but I was hungry and we were there. That was a mistake apparently, thinking that I could get away with eating their food. I’m just not happy right now at all.

Gack, I’m so nauseas I just feel like I’m going to throw up, which I think I’m going to go and do now…

mStand Laptop Stand @ TestFreaks



"For today’s review we will be looking at the mStand from Rain Design. This laptop stand was created with the MacBook Pro aluminum design aesthetic in mind. Although it could be used with most any laptop it looks like it was born to be holding an aluminum style MacBook. The mStand is composed of a unibody piece of aluminum that matches up perfectly with the MacBook Pro/Air anodized finish. "

1/4" Sharp CCD 380 Line Color CCTV Mini Surveillance Camera @ DIY-Guides




Quote: "The world we live in has gotten pretty bad. It’s to the point that we have security everywhere in the form of alarms and cameras. Is it a good thing? I’m not sure, but I feel safer with the alarm on my house and the cameras I have set up outside. Alarms are the most common, but security cameras on home are becoming a lot more common. You can buy pre-made surveillance kits or if you’re a DIYer  like you can build you own. One of the great places for inexpensive security equipment is, and they’ve provided the 1/4" Sharp CCD 380 Line Color CCTV Mini Surveillance Camera that I have today for review. The camera is a pinhole style which can be hid most most place and has plenty of uses like checking up on your babysitter while you’re not at home. So read on for a quick review of a decent little camera."
