2013 better Luck with the Shamrock Shake

McDonald's McCafe Shamrock Shake can look pretty good in photos. This year, however, my luck ran out. Two of the shakes were weak in flavor, which means they weren't very 'minty' tasting. One of those shakes wasn't at all like I thought it should be. I kept trying to get a good Shamrock Shake and good picture. Maybe I will put a shake picture on here, but a picture from last year would be better.

Turn On... this Song

Best music to listen to when going out? I have heard so many songs on the radio and it's hard to remember. This is 2014 and I want to hear songs that have some action and excitement. When I'm driving around, I hope to hear "Can't Remember to Forget You" by Shakira and featuring Rihanna. The video is good but I don't watch it while I'm driving because I don't want to wreck, and also don't want to feel too good. These young singers are beautiful and there's too much going on in the music video to describe in a fast food blog. Oh yeah, that's right this is me here and like I said before, besides fast food I will also write about the things people talk about when they go out for food, soft drinks, or whatever. My goal at the moment is to kind of cancel out the negative comments on YouTube. In my opinion it's a great song and I like it a lot.

So it's good to be positive, though I doubt that when I'm driving around I'll see any young women a tenth as pretty as them. What's much more important, the song rocks and it's fun to listen to and watch!

Halibut Sandwich from Arctic Circle

My recent fast food was from Arctic Circle restaurant: Halibut Sandwich and Tater Tots. The sandwich was good, and bigger than I expected. The Tater Tots were oily but with the halibut sandwich were a nice meal (not a meal listed on the menu) and if this is possible and I say it is, made fast-food sense to me.

I had two iced coffees, one from Jack in the Box and the other from Burger King. It was a fun night of fast food, and with my notes on iced coffees, now I'm getting ready to decide on the best iced coffee for the most recent period of time.

Having some problems and maybe I will post tomorrow.

Feel That! Vibrations free of Equations

I ought to do that headline over again as a song title or something similar. Alright, why not. Anyway, Friday wasn't exactly an unpredictable response to what happens here when fast food comes home. Fast food, come home! Okay, that was cute of me. You remember Dolly, well she was very excited when I walked in with fast food. Some say/spell her name Dollie, but to me, besides Dolly she is Piglet or Chublet (I pronounce choo-BLAY) even though she has a better shape now, because she still loves food that people eat -- and way too much. I have a better shape too (than several years ago, when I lost weight) but we're not necessarily in shape because I train (training my stomach) so I can eat foods that have vegetables. So yes, I eat salads. Sometimes raw vegetables bother my stomach, so I'm trying to take on raw vegetables on a daily basis. This may not last but I've been doing that for a couple of weeks. Anyway, back to this dog whose favorite food is... hmmm (I'm pretending to be deep in thought)... whose favorite food is... any style of cooked chicken, pizza, Chinese food, fish, and many more, but fish from a fast-food restaurant was what we (the people, plus you know who) had Friday. I know I left out many of Dolly's favorite foods because just about every time she eats it's her favorite food. Fish was her favorite on Friday, so let me focus on fish.

Is February a good month to drink iced coffee, or not? I don't know. The cold weather usually doesn't keep me from drinking iced coffee, iced tea, and shakes, but it hasn't been cold here much in the last two weeks. At least not for me. I went to the McDonald's drive-thru and got the Shamrock Shake. It was the first time this year I had it. I liked the shake. Before that, I went to the same drive-thru and ordered iced coffee. In between, I drove around and listened to the radio. It's more relaxing not having to think so much about songs and just listen for some fun and happiness. Now I'm thinking about iced coffees and trying to figure out which one was the best. It's hard to decide. Burger King, McDonald's, and Jack in the Box are all very competitive and in February I feel their iced coffees have been very good or better.

2013 - Hot Cinnamon Shake at Jack in the Box

I missed this shake in 2014 and though I wasn't totally in love with this shake last year, I did want it again, so that says something. 

It's like a spicy love relationship, and somebody once told me opposites attract. So far, 2014 has been a rather boring year and that goes for life and fast food. 

I feel the color of the shake was darker than my photo shows. The photo information says I didn't use the flash, and as I recall it was very light in the restaurant. From what I could see, the shake was a dark shade of pink or a light shade of red. 

Mainly at this moment, I just want to see some of my photos because maybe it will cheer me up. I also need some food love and food certainly has loved me in the past.

Mudhoney had the Number 1 Rock Song

The order of the songs in the list of 2013's 25 Best Rock Songs started the same way as it did for the 10 Best half-year list. (Both lists, like others I've posted, are my lists and not based on numbers, popularity, or other lists out there.)

Mudhoney's song was Number 1, then Alyssa Turkowski and Black Sabbath had the next two songs on the list. This was by no means a certainty in the days before I finished the list. Some other songs were considered for the top 3. I just think these were the three best.

You can see the rest of the list on The Overcast Inside which is where I review songs and publish lists of songs.

Saturday is to music as eating out is to Saturday and music

Some readers remember when I said (wrote, that is) there would be other topics I'd mix in with my writing about fast food. That's why music is occasionally a topic here. Same as when people go out to eat or hang out drinking an espresso drink, coffee, soda pop, or other beverage.

So then, please look up above in the blog.

From my 2013 notes on Wendy's fries

Ok, I found the notes from last year about Wendy's fries. I ordered the Large NATURAL-CUT FRIES w/Sea Salt. I could see the fries were a beautiful golden to light-brown color. I wrote the word great with exclamation mark and underlined: great! 

I went back through the drive thru to the pick up window and bought the 6 pc. chicken nuggets. Also, great flavor and golden color, the nuggets were delicious with Barbecue Sauce. I have photo of those too, but it doesn't show how delicious they are and also in reading my notes I see that in the nuggets serving container was on it's side in the Wendy's bag and a few fell out so I had to put nuggets back in the serving container. In other words, it's not the way it usually looks.

25 Best Rock Songs of 2013 Heavy and Hard, but also Alternative and Pop

After I thought it was a very hard and heavy rock and metal year of 2013, as I compared many songs the last two weeks, the songs and bands quickly proved to me 2013 was a very alternative-music type of year. There are hard rock and metal songs on my list 25 Best Rock Songs of 2013 but clearly alternative and several pop songs are on that rock list. Congratulations to those bands and artists. I posted the list tonight on The Overcast Inside. It's my list and part of my opinion.
