Bullet Sunday 26

Posted on Sunday, April 15th, 2007

Dave!I'm tired. I'm hungry. I'm irritable. And it's time for Bullet Sunday!

• Driven. You're driving back from the Seattle over the mountain pass with your iPod set on shuffle and piped into the stereo. Suddenly the rain stops and the sun starts to come out. Everything is fresh and green and the air smells as if the world is brand new. Then Etta James' beautiful voice comes over the speakers singing At Last, and suddenly you realize that you're glad to be alive. For a few minutes anyway. Then some moron pulls in front of you going 10 mph under the speed limit and you're stuck behind them for 20 minutes wanting crash into their stupid ass... not even caring if you survive, just so long as they die in a ball of fire. Isn't it strange how life can turn on a dime like that?

• Panera. I took a photo of my most favorite sandwich at Panera Bread yesterday. Behold the glory that is The Mediterranean...

Panera Bread

I wish I had another one right now, because the only thing I have to eat here at home is chocolate pudding.

• Leopard. Apple announced that the next version of OS X, code-name Leopard, has been delayed four months, moving to an October release date. This is a bit of a shame, but better late than Vista. At least I'll have my iPhone to keep me occupied come summertime...


• Repaired. Finally scraped the money together to have Saturn repair all the damage that Midas did to my car when they "fixed" it last. Sure I'm poor now, but at least I don't have to stare at that stupid "Service Engine Soon" light anymore. Not having my car backfire when I turn the engine off is pretty sweet too. If only Saturn would have installed rocket launchers and a flame-thrower, the ride home wouldn't have been quite so bad.

Now it's time for dinner. Looks like it's going to be chocolate pudding and a can of 7-Up tonight.

    I eat hear as often as I can. Love it. Can’t get enough of it.

  2. Stacey says:

    That picture of the sandwich is making me hungry. If I didn’t need an ark to make it to Panera right now, I might be tempted to go there.

  3. Eileen Dover says:

    Hear at home?

    Tut tut. I wonder how long it has been in your refrigerator.

  4. Dave2 says:

    RW… Unfortunately, it’s over a 2-hour drive before I can get any Panera. 🙁

    Stacey… An ark? Flooding much?

    Eileen… Hey! I fixed that spelling mistake! Has my feed not updated?!?

  5. RW says:

    I saw the “hear” as well but it’s fixed now. Imagine that – Dave caught in the act of being human.

    (Don’t tell anybody about the seven versions of all my posts before all the mistakes are corrected, k?)

  6. Fruitcake says:

    Cupcake is a huge fan of Panera. I have yet to eat there, but that picture sure makes it tempting!

    So, lots of chocolate pudding on hand, huh?

  7. bogup says:

    Family ate at the one in Izzyquaw (sp., I know) last month. It was very good, and not far off the road for I-90 commuters. Oh, and the pickles are good too.

    Right on target re: Leopard. I’d rather they get it right and late than wrong and on time. Maybe the new laptop machines will also be offered in October or B4. Hey, we can hope.

  8. Hilly says:

    It’s so funny how we tend to overlook what we are blessed enough to have…like the Panera, down the street, which I eat at like once a week.

    Sorry your dinner is pudding! That’s no good :(.

  9. kapgar says:

    “Better late than Vista”? Brilliant.

    I still swear that iPods know our moods or, at the very least, help to determine them. They’re fantastic little gadgets in that way, aren’t they?

  11. kristin says:

    to Panera.

    My god that sammich looks good. Though a supper of all chocolate puding has a certain appeal. ‘Specially after a night of drukn-ness.

  12. Amy Guth says:

    Oh Panera, you know how to love our vegetarian hearts.

  13. bogup says:

    Oh, I know how to spell Issaquah and was just kiddin Seattle-mites. Any town that has a designated homecoming week for salmon has got to be a great place. And the hazelnut brewed coffee at Panera is also pretty tasty on a cool day — and I’m not much for flavored coffee.

  14. holygirl says:

    Mmmmmm Panera.

    Lil Dave is so cute I want to put him in my pocket.

  15. Iron Fist says:

    Ahh, chocolate pudding…the dinner of champions!

  16. The Chad says:

    mmmm…..panera bread. mmmmm.

  17. Avitable says:

    I love the Asiago Roast Beef sandwich, and a bread bowl filled with clam chowder from Panera.

  18. Miss Britt says:

    I am so NOT a vegeterian but I am obviously starving right now… because I find myself DROOLING over that non-meat delight!

  19. I’m addicted to Panera. I wonder if I can go back out in this storm and get a sandwich.

  20. Bre says:

    Geeze-O-Man I wish we had a Panera closer than… oh… an hour away! It might actually be worth the trip…

  21. ChillyWilly says:

    As with most car repairs, it seems that you take it to one place, only to have to take it to another to fix what the first place screwed up. In my case recently, it was the detail shop that made my car look great for $100, only to have to drop over $1,000 to fix a few things that broke after the detailing.

    And of course, it’s always around the same time that emissions are due, which didn’t pass until after the $1,000 fixes were done.

  22. tori says:

    When I was pregnant, I ate Panera every single day. I loved the turkey artichoke sandwich minus the turkey. That artichoke spread is amazing, and if I ever figured out the recipe, I would make a huge batch of it and just eat it with a spoon. I would be one happy girl if I could figure that out. I did figure out their black bean soup recipe and am pretty happy with that one.

    Can you tell I am starving right now, or what?

  23. Laurence says:

    That sandwich at Panera Bread looks like very “délicieux” ! 😉
    I really want to eat a chocolat pudding ! :-p

    P.S. Lil’Dave is so cute as usual ! 🙂

  24. shari says:

    Lil Leopard Dave is my favorite. I love him MORE than Panera.

  25. sandra says:

    Leopard late = on time iPhone

  26. borysSNORC says:

    Panera must be the last remaining American food franchise that hasn’t invaded Australia yet.. I’ve never heard of it… but sounds like one to keep an eye out for! 🙂

    Also, eye catching is Lil Dave is his leopard suit Grrr!!! 😉


  27. Suzy says:

    You post a picture of an amazing looking sandwich and then don’t tell us what’s in it?

    The Uninitiated

  28. Michelle says:

    Soooo, I’m the only one wondering how slow YOU were going if he/she passed you going 10 under? :o)

  29. Dave2 says:

    They didn’t pass me… they pulled out in front of me from a gas station or something. 🙁

  30. Michelle says:

    panera is definitely gaining ground, at least in the US. i’m always amused that when you order a sandwich or soup or something, your options for your “side” are…3 kinds of bread, and an apple. isn’t the bread on my sandwich enough? I try to be good and get the apple.

    Panera should open up a sister restaurant, Pantera. It would be a bit like a biker bar, but with yummy food!

  31. göran says:

    The better late than vista cartoon cheers me up big time! Thanks, I needed that 🙂
