the time i ate burger king for lunch

Sunday, March 20, 2011

I had a 90 minute “layover” (what do you call them for trains…. stopovers?) at the Dresden train station and Burger King was the only place with a) a table to sit, b) an outlet for my computer and c) internet access. Turns out, the internet wasn’t free, but at least I got to charge my computer so more HIMYM* train marathoning could ensue during the next leg of my journey.
What healthy foods did I consume this time, you ask? Gebaeckener Emmentaler , which is actually not that unhealthy in comparison to what other kinds of BK monstrosities there are on the menu. Besides, this is a traditional Austrian/German dish so it can’t be that unhealthy (this is irrefutable logic, people). Well, eating 5 tiny pieces of G.E. (as well as drinking water out of a rectangular carton...oh, silly Europe) can only take so much of one’s time and without internet access, my options were limited. Therefore, the rest of the time was spent having a little vanity session; aka using my webcam as a mirror and realizing that no matter how hard I try, there really isn’t much stopping my hair from looking like a lion’s mane if I run out the door directly after showering. Eventually, I resorted to tying that mess into a knot on the top of my head so that when Piotr picks up from the train station, the first thing out of his mouth won’t be, “Should we buy you a hair brush?" (I can't remember the last time I brushed my hair...I just hate doing that.)

Oh, and I tried a Butterfinger heart for dessert and it was no Reese's heart, that's for dang sure.

*HIMYM update: Since I'm now in Season 3, I just watched the Slapsgiving episode...and had to re-watch it immediately upon finishing it. One of my top 5 episodes, I'd say.

before reading this post, i was thinking, "oh, her hair looks awesome." clearly, i went to college in a hippie run town. still, awesome. my idea of doing my hair is dipping it into the ocean, this making it do itself.

Definitely one of the best episodes! My friends and I had a slap bet going on this weekend, in which I was the commissioner. I encourage you to bring slaps into your life as well!

I am praying every day for my hair to grow out faster, because I'm dying to do buns like that. I doubt I'll be able to pull it off like you, though! So cute!

I've recently become obsessed w/ HIMYM, and have discovered back to back reruns each day at 6:00. They're already repeating, though, so I might have to start doing in w/ Netflix because I want to piece together the whole story. I feel like they're my friends! (does that mean I need to find more *real* friends? HA!)

Mighty Burns said...

Dear Jenni,

From a fellow non-hair-brushing, running-out-the-door-with-massive-after-shower-hair blogger, your hair looks lovely (both the "Lion's Mane" and bun updo)! There are far too many ladies in this world who would just DIE to have that amount of volume, so cherish it, girl! :) (On the other hand, there are days where I know exactly how you feel...)

It actually looks very West Coast/Californian.

Oh, and may I ask where your striped scarf is from? If it can be bought in America or shipped via online, then I am definitely getting one! *crosses fingers*
