In my continuing quest for hipster coolness, I have recently acquired a kelly green peacoat and a pair of Tina Fey glasses. It’s a weird combination, because the green coat guarantees that I’ll stand out in a crowd, but the glasses sometimes make people check twice to make sure it’s me.
I’ve wanted cooler glasses for quite some time, thinking that if I had cool glasses, I’d wear them a little more often and give my eyes a break from the contacts. Also, I like the way they can change my look so easily. But glasses are seriously expensive, and so I’ve put off getting them for months and months now.
But my old prescription glasses just weren’t cutting it anymore, and it got to the point that I could barely see the words on our GIGANTIC BIG-SCREEN TELEVISION while wearing those glasses. I had a little extra money coming, so I bit the bullet and went and got the glasses.
I really do like them and have worn them all week; in fact, the only reason I’m not wearing them today is because I have PT and don’t want to deal with them there.
Ooh, crap, I just remembered I’m out of checks. Problem.
Also, I have not eaten lunch today because of my PT appointment this afternoon, and between that and the latest at Dooce, I am seriously craving pizza. Like, way seriously. Like, I seriously contemplated ordering a whole pizza from Papa John’s and eating the entire thing myself. Because I could.
I guess I’m a pizza purist. I don’t really like meat on my pizzas, and the thought of a supreme pizza sends me into fits, because I start thinking about all the toppings I’ll have to pick off before I can eat the pizza and I’m like OH MY GOD, PLEASE KILL ME NOW. I like cheese pizza best, but too much cheese borders on the yucky. I also loooooove Hawaiian pizza (is it really even Hawaiian, or is it just ’cause of the pineapple?), and that is my one exception to the meat rule. Although I’m fine with just the pineapple and not the Canadian bacon.
Wait. Hawaiian pizza has Canadian bacon on it? That’s weird.
Anyway. I also like mushrooms and olives, but since pretty much no one else in my family will go for a mushroom and olive pizza, I don’t usually get that.
As far as pizza places go, if we’re talking big chains I like Papa John’s best, followed by Domino’s and then Pizza Hut if I’m feeling like drinking a vat of grease. Hand-tossed or pan crust is where it’s at; I don’t see the point in thin crust pizza, and I think it’s gross and a total waste of money.
I really do miss Giordano’s stuffed spinach pizza, but you can’t really get that around here. So I get that when I’m in Chicago.
Okay. Now I am completely starving. And I want to know your pizza preferences, too!
