One year while they remodeled our high school's cafeteria, Mcdonalds catered our lunches. The set up was really confusing and it was a few weeks before I figured out where I was supposed to pay for my awesome chef's salad (remember when they had those - why did they stop???).
It was always funny to run into D-Town alum years later - someone would always bring up the year of the free Mcdonalds.

They fed us at our school too. It was truly awful -I'd've given anything to be allowed to take packed lunches.

My school was a closed campus. You either brought your lunch or ate in the cafeteria.

Now, when I see HS students congregating at fast food places every day for lunch--it seems wrong. And not very nutritious. God forbid they should do something as uncool as bringing homemade food for lunch.

I hate tract houses! I'd rather live in a yurt.

Housing is TOO FUCKING EXPENSIVE!

[crazy time travel guy] It won't be after 2012 when the bird flu pandemic comes through. Lots of empty homes then. [/crazy time travel guy]

Nothing to do with the flu, though, but because people can't afford to light their homes what with old-fangled bulbs being outlawed. yurts by candlelight'll be all they can manage.

In the Police song Message in a Bottle, the line, I hope that someone gets my message in a bottle. Does someone mean anyone, or does someone mean, that special someone.

As for the message in a bottle. Does Sting have a drinking problem. Maybe he has deep problems than that, and his drinking is a cry for help.

As soon as I started earning my own money (evening & weekend job) I was able to indulge in all the things that were rationed at home. Hence sugary fizzy drinks as soon as I left the house
