This is like Die Hard 3 when all the cops were off searching for the school with the bomb so there were no cops on the streets. I'm gonna loot me a TV.

So Krispy Kreme is giving away free donuts, eh? Did they contract out to a place that actually makes real donuts to supply the give-away or are they going to hand out whatever it is that they make and just say it's a donut?

Won't go to Krispy Kreme even for a free one. Off to Lamar's.

Mmm the most Holey of Holidays. Time to break out the mini donut machine.

What a crappy day to start making a concerted effort to reduce the amount of sugar I eat.
 
2012-06-01 11:03:12 AM  
mmmmmm....fried dough and sugar.

No Krispy Kreme or Dunkin Donuts near me but a Tim Horton's just opened up down the road, so...hurreh!

Just ate a regular jelly and a strawberry jelly from the local coffee joint. They weren't free.... but it's a local chain with only a half dozen stores and I frequent them when I can.

I had no idea today was donut day but by odd coincidence I had a craving for donuts on my way into work so I stopped at Safeway. They sell fresh-baked donuts for 50 cents each, great deal. Yum!

Hah! We take turns on who has to bring doughnuts for our Friday morning meeting. Today two people brought them by accident, so we had about 3 dozen for 6 staffers and 3 students.

We be feeding well today.

/appropriate for National Doughnut Day

Jument: I had no idea today was donut day


It's not; it's the 4th (3 days). I found that simply by seeing text while GISing for 'police and donuts'

I'd hit that. And it reminds me of a CSB:

The other night/early one morning before dawn I'm walking to Slevs for cancer sticks milk for coffee and I basically jaywalked from the corner diagonally to the opposite side of the street, and while doing so looked right to check for any traffic, and there were two cars coming, turning left from the corner I just left, the 2nd car being a police SUV; I waited on the double-yellow lines for them to pass me, continued walking the last 2 blocks to 7-11.

Before I even get there I see the pigs are parked in the lot and think 'oh great, watch them try to write me up for a jaywalking offense' but I didn't care, didn't think it would happen, had seen in the last day a police car just drive around a double-parked car with blinkers on -- even though double parking is illegal, as are U-turns, but it's Philly.

So I get to the slevs and both pigs are at the counter, only one cashier, i walk to the back, get my half-gal of milk, head for the checkout, and the 1st cop having her sale rung up, was a hot latina shorter than me (and I'm 5'6"); the second cop was some goon with a shaved bald head -- because he was balding -- and as I turn the corner to approach the register, he's looking at me, and I'm just looking right back at him -- and he's looking at me as I approach -- and I'm just looking right the F*ck back at him, right in his eyes the whole time -- and he turns away from me.

I'm sure he saw me checking out his latina co-pig as I first rounded the corner, which I did, cuz she had a nice ass.

/f*ck pigs
//then while they're still both right there and I'm waiting to be rung up I pick up a box of Angry Birds candy on the rack right there and (the hot latina is plugging her numbers into that keypad, paid with a card) and nobody's talkin' so i pick up a box of Angry Birds candy: $1.29. The game only cost 99¢ so I hold the box up and say to the cashier, whom I know -- I'm there every 2 days, at least, for Camel Blues -- "the candy costs more than the game!"
