Today’s post is just a bunch of random shit.

First, I’m now on Facebook. Add me, if ye dare. I warn ye, thar be balls up ahead if ye do!

Second, I had an awesome surprise yesterday morning (Click to view larger version)!


Third, I have decided that I’d really like a day to be named after me. Maybe sometime in April or May. Who do I see about making that happen?

Fourth, I got three new scents from BBW: Fresh Lemonade, which smells absolutely divine, Strawberry Patch, which is a little too overpowering, and Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, which smelled so good, it gave me an erection.

Finally, I got tagged by that misspellin’ head-explodin’ peener-obsessed Canuck, Bluepaintred:

The Rules:

  1. Add a direct link to your post below the name of the person who tagged you. Include the state and country you’re in.
  2. List out your top 5 favorite places to eat at your location (locally).
  3. Tag 5 other people (preferably from other countries/states) and let them know they’ve been tagged.

My 5 favorite places to eat locally

  1. Toojay’s Deli – This New York style deli is awesome. Great latkes, amazing desserts (including one “Killer Cake” that has no flour and is so dense even I can’t finish a piece), and cream soda. Someday I might get up the courage to try the tongue sandwich, but I doubt it.
  2. Fleming’s – While it can never meet my expectations of a truly excellent steak restaurant after having lived in Los Angeles, it’s the best one I’ve found in this little hamlet called Orlando. I try to eat here once a month at least, and if you’re in town and ready to drop $200 or so on dinner, go to Fleming’s for a meal that’s actually worth every penny.
  3. Cheesecake Factory – Huge plates of food, delicious cheesecake, and one of the largest menus I’ve ever seen.
  4. Stacked Subs – You always need a good sub place, and this is that place. They pile the meat high, make their bread on-site, and add lots of mayonnaise. What could be better?
  5. Morton’s Steakhouse – Another favorite steakhouse. Arnie Morton’s steakhouses are always great places to go for a nice dinner. And although I really enjoy their cuts, I like Fleming’s just a tiny bit better. This just cements my belief, though, that you can’t get a decent steak unless you’re willing to pay for it. And I am.
Previous players:

And, finally, who shall I tag? I’ll try to be diverse with regards to state and/our country:

1. Diana from “Americans in Singapore”, Singapore.
2. Miss Misery from “Miss Misery Smiles”, Canada.
3. Dawn from “Tiny Voices in My Head”, BFE, Pennsylvania.
4. Heather from “Typical Redhead”, BFE, Ohio.
5. Amy from “Amy’s Musings”, BFE, California.

    ps if you know of anyone else doing the tag please do send me a message and I’ll update you guys to my list

  2. velverse

    I heard a lot about the Cheesecake Factory.. but now I am more interested in the Killer Cake. Hahaha.. You make it sounds so interesting and to die for now 🙂

    Thanks for doing the tag and introducing me to this Killer Cake 😀 I shall keep that in mind.

  3. Avitable

    Sheila, no they’re all mine! And I don’t know why you’re spammy, but I check it every day, so I’ll rescue you each time.

    Nicole, thanks for the visit and comment. I’d suggest keeping an eye on the five people I tagged.

    Mr. Fabulous, I’m a stickler for the rules. :lmao: And I added you on Facebook a few days ago – did you not even notice?

    Stephanie, of course, with all that choice, I always get the exact same thing every time.

    Heather, :boobs3:

    Velverse, it’s amazing. It weighs about a hundred pounds and is nothing but pure chocolate.

  4. Mistress Yoda

    I already did this once on my own without a meme :finger: I ADORE The Cheesecake Factory!!! If I come out to Florida we should totally go! I always get the baked ziti with four cheeses but then again any restaurant that has baked ziti…that’s what I get 😀

  5. Miss Britt

    Alright seriously, before I move, you have to come here. And NOT so that you can help pack and I can hassle you into doing manual labor. I promise.

    But because you simply CANNOT consider yourself a true lover of beef if you have never had Iowa Beef. And you have to experience being able to get really, really good meat without dropping $200.

    (Believe me when I tell you the little dive down the road has better steak than Fleming’s)

  6. Avitable

    Mistress Yoda, ok, I’m always up for it. You should come down and visit.

    Geeky, you dirty old lady you.

    Britten, you didn’t even know that filet mignon doesn’t have to be wrapped in bacon. I’m sorry, but I’m not going to trust your opinion on a dive down the road in BFE Iowa having better steak. :angel:

    Mr. Fabulous, I’m on the search for a young hot blond intern myself these days.

  7. Mistress Yoda

    I may be visiting Sara Sota in September with my family (and Mr. Yoda of course).

    My father is there right now on a business trip, if you see a Jewish male in his late fifties with a full beard and a cowboy hat that’s him.

  8. Avitable

    Poppy, well, I like french fries.

    BPR, it’s a limited edition release. I’ve had friends who have only seen them in Walmart. I’ve never seen them anywhere.

    Erratic Scribbler, it’s okay to admit that you’re gay for me. I can handle it.

    Mistress Yoda, if you visit Sarasota, I’ll make the drive over to see you. Besides, you don’t see too many bearded Jewish cowboys.

  9. Webmiztris

    I’ll play along but don’t expect it to be too exciting. I don’t eat anywhere fancy! I’d rather pay $20 for a meal and buy shoes with the extra cash than pay $200 for a meal. It all turns to shit anyway! but not shoes! :heartbeat:

  10. Poppy

    Yes, my point precisely. The first time I ever had mayo on fries was in Belgium. Sooooo tasty. Now I have mayo on fries whenever I get the chance. Although generally I add spices to the mayo rather than just straight mayo.

  11. themuttprincess

    I commented earlier and it disapeared. That sux because I have no idea what I wrote.

    SO there.

    I have never been to cheesecake factory–and there is one near me… Maybe soon I will go there…..

    OH and Britt is right you have never lived until you have had REAL beef!!!! (Iowa has great beef and so does most midwestern states)

  12. Amy

    That is a lot of cookies. How long will it last you?

    I told you that fresh lemonade was good, didn’t I? And, now I won’t be ordering the strawberry patch!

    Try the tongue sandwich – they are actually very good!!

  13. Avitable

    Poppy, oh, I’ll throw some mayo your way. :bukkake:

    Mist, yeah, they would. I’d have to demand royalties if that happened.

    Geeky, I do too. It’s the only way I eat them.

    Erratic Scribbler, would you be writing for them? That would be interesting.

    Dawn, local dives are okay, too.

    Poppy, I’m just a straight mayo and fry man.

    Mistress Yoda, wow, your dad defies stereotypes at every turn, doesn’t he?

    Tug, nobody sent them. My favorite employee bought them for me. Although Poppy sent me a package of sweets and candy the other day that was absolutely awesome!

    TMP, I refuse to believe that there is any difference in a steak in a nice restaurant in Florida and on in Iowa. They all come from the same place.

    Amy, I’m hiding the cookies so they last a long time. And the idea of a tongue sandwich frightens me.

  14. Tug

    Nothing like kissing the boss’ :assshake:


    Tongue SUCKS. DO.NOT.EAT.IT. you’re very welcome. And just so ya’ know? Brains suck too. High school home-ec coming back to haunt me…….

    A lot of the Morton’s get their steak from MT, or used to. corn fed beef, the best there is!

  15. Poppy

    Please tell me that you cloned yourself and that’s you both times giving me the : poppy bukkake : because you know that’s my favorite. I like straight mayo as well, but sometimes I like spicy. I know you don’t do spicy, and I can only hope that in your next life your palate is a little less, shall we say, innocent.

    I cannot believe you mentioned my package of sweets but not Mr. Fab’s! Do you like me better or something?! 😛 Or maybe this means you like me less because now Amy is going to kick my ass for giving you unhealthy snack food. Secretly I enjoy getting my ass kicked by women so I don’t mind. :assshake: :heartbeat:

  16. Avitable

    Tug, I know that most of the good restaurants I go to get their beef from the midwest, which is why I don’t think it would be any different eating it here or there.

    Poppy, I thought I mentioned that when it happened. If not, then, well, Mr. Fab also sent me delicious snack cakes, which were awesome! And Amy loved the chips you sent.

    Mike, ha!

    TMP, the restaurants where I eat get their cows from the midwest.

  17. Poppy

    Amy ate the chips and loved them?! Awesome!! They’re made locally, in the next town over from where I live. The French onion are my favorite. I know how much you don’t love onion, hence the disclaimer on the “packing slip”. 🙂 If she is ever jonesing for more I will gladly hook her up. I’m a giver.

  18. Avitable

    Tug, yay you!

    Poppy, yeah, she thought they were tasty. I’m not a fan of chips, personally.

    TMP, yeah, but the small amount of time that takes is not going to affect the taste unless you’re a gourmand with a very sophisticated palate.

    Amy, yeah, I’ve eaten two boxes already.

    Mistress Yoda, well, as long as he keeps up with a few of the stereotypes.

  19. erratic scribbler

    It’s a possibility. How this for greeting card?

    When I think of you, mother,
    on this most special day meant just for you,
    I think of all the fun times we had,
    and the ways you tried so hard to lighten my life.

    But then I remembered that you’re a selfish bitch,
    and that I’ve fuckin’ hated from the very start.
    You should really consider yourself lucky that dad still fucks you,
    cuz I’ll bet you’re a terrible lay.

    Enjoy Mother’s Day. I won’t be calling.


    Think I have a shot? (Wait ’til you see the Avisday cards I have in mind.)

  20. Crys!

    does BBW stand for Bath & Body Works? just curious.

    i like Morton’s too, but it’s always so loud. i always like Ruth Chris too, because i love a good ribeye cooked in scalding butter, hi. i was in Des Moines last week and tried a bit of my brother’s sake ribeye and DAMN that was good! i love steak so HEY, maybe when i’m in Orlando in September, we can get one? maybe, maybe. i’m willing to pay for a good one, too.

    like bobby and whitney, we got something in common.
