If you see Kay['s nappy dugout], tell her I said hi.

I can appreciate a solid Poster Children reference.

I was talking to Nick.

In the immortal words of Charlie Rich:

Hey
Did you happen to see
The most nappiest dugout in the world
And if you did...

And happy birthday Nick.

Seriously, though, E: Is that photo of the lot behind my building?

JVC, I was trying to make a joke. It was a dumb joke. I hope you didn't think I was being rude to you.

I like the idea of the mayor riding his bike around behind John's apartment, pausing to stare up at his kitchen windows.

Happy n/a-Day

Stealing pies off window sills like a hobo.

WORST Jimmy John's experience ever (still better than most Subway visits):

- They no longer serve alfalfa sprouts - HALF THE POINT OF JIMMY JOHN'S IMO is ALFALFA SPROUTS!!
- The cashier was uncharacteristically sullen. When I changed my mind and decided to add a cookie, she jabbed the register and muttered the new total
- The roast beef on my sandwich was simply horrible :( It was riddled with unchewable fat and connective tissue and dripping w/ mayo

Also, it took an unusually long time to get my order. Can't complain b/c it was still only like 3 or 4 minutes, but normally it's done before I've even put my wallet back in my pocket.

I wonder if this "Mayor" is the dude who owns the lot and with whom I once had a minor skirmish after he blocked the alley with his car.

Carrie Antwoord (jaymc), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 19:15 (five years ago) Permalink

It was my one sure place to get sprouts in this cruel city.

Pita Malört (Je55e), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 19:16 (five years ago) Permalink

In that empty lot.

Jimmy Johns actually came by the library today and dropped off like 15 free mini-sandwiches for some strange reason. As a thank you for being awesome I guess. Anyway, so yay Jimmy Johns.

Sucks. Can't they irridiate them?

What we need more of is irradiation.

Congrats, aj. That act of kindness must have sapped my local JJ's goodness today.

Pita Malört (Je55e), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 19:23 (five years ago) Permalink

I actually told them "if any of your jimmy johns comrades serve a man named Jesse K*** today, make sure to give him horrible service and food"

deploying a sewer otter unit (askance johnson), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 19:25 (five years ago) Permalink

See, that's the kind of personalized service I expect from them.

Pita Malört (Je55e), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 19:31 (five years ago) Permalink

I really liked Jimmy John's for a long time. Okay, "really liked" is an overstatement, but I would sometimes buy sandwiches from there on purpose when I had other options, because I specifically wanted a sandwich from Jimmy John's. But it's like there's a Jimmy John's punchcard in my heart, and they used up all their punches, because about three months ago I was just like... nope. I no longer like Jimmy John's.

Nope, figured thats what it was.

I cannot eat Jimmy John's. I've always avoided them, ever since that stuff came out about the owners being racist, but then I ended up there during a quick break during a meeting and managed to get food poisoning. Now even seeing their logo makes me midly ill.

I feel confident that my opinions on major fast food sandwich chains are well documented in previous threads, but I hate Potbelly. Hate. From the second I walk in and somebody wants me to yell my order across the restaurant to the first bite of that nasty, dry breadstuff they use for their sandwiches, the whole experience is dire.

I will always hate Subway the most, though.

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 19:56 (five years ago) Permalink

Sara joins you in your hatred of potbelly. I seriously find their tuna sandwiches nigh-addictive.

deploying a sewer otter unit (askance johnson), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 19:59 (five years ago) Permalink

Potbellys not that bad, if only because they often have warm, freshly baked cookies that are infinitely preferable to those shitty coasters Subway passes off as cookies. Also, malts.

For some reason I really like Potbellys' mustard.

Steve Youngblood (dan m), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 20:10 (five years ago) Permalink

I've never had Potbelly cookies but their milkshakes are good.

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 20:24 (five years ago) Permalink

I love JJ's bread. I didn't know about the racism. Potbelly is also good.

Pita Malört (Je55e), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 20:33 (five years ago) Permalink

I think it was mostly rumor I'd heard about the racist stuff, but then a couple years ago there was a whole series of articles about Jimmy John's donating money to the campaigns of the suppoters of Arizona's batshit racial profiling law.

I've consistently been disappointed in JJ's.

Jeff, Tuesday, 15 May 2012 20:36 (five years ago) Permalink

The last time I went to Jimmy Johns, I walked out during ordering. They're like, "What kind of bread do you prefer? The whole loaf or the large?" I didn't want to go into carb shock.

I have read more of The Countess and I misspoke about it's grossness. It's not that gross. There are a couple of gross parts, but given how that book could have gone, it's pretty tame.

Speaking of books, I needed to take a hilarious screenshot of my Facebook feed a few days ago, but I forgot. One of my friends from college was posting the most hilarious lines from that 50 Shades of Grey book, but in between were status updates from my aunt and a family friend both enthusing about how fantastic the book was.

there's this comix podcast I listen to and a couple of weeks ago they spent about 20 minutes just doing a (relatively) straight reading of a scene from fifty shades of grey. It was among the funniest things I've ever heard in my entire life.

deploying a sewer otter unit (askance johnson), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 20:51 (five years ago) Permalink

I think I need to hear that. Just reading the lines in print was sending me into fits of laughter.

Kenan what are you talking about?

Too damn much bread is what I'm talking about!

Jon here's a link to the podcast, if you want to check it out:

It is a vaguely embarrassing fact that The Ink Panthers is my favorite podcast.

Thanks for the link!

I think it is demonstrably more embarrassing that I enjoy a Kevin Smith podcast, so don't sweat it.

I still don't understand why Kenan walked out while ordering a Jimmy John's sandwich. Because they were going to put it on... bread?

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 21:34 (five years ago) Permalink

A whole loaf of bread?
