verdict: tasty, try it!

i must be turning into a granny. this gloomy weather makes my inner hermit come out. all i want to do is stick my head in the ground and come back up only when i feel the warm sun heating my butt. so my friday "happy hour" was nothing more than this, a white bag, cuz apparently, this granny can't party in this kind of weather.

i also woke up this morning thinking BURGER. do you guys ever wake up thinking BURGER? i do sometimes. that explains my muffin top. anyways, i worked the whole day thinking BURGER, BURGER, BURGER. when i left work, i headed to rick's in silverlake for a whaddya know, BURGER. my happy hour replacement....yes?

there is something absolutely amazing about being able to satisfy a craving, especially one that started at 7:30 in the morning. though it's not THE BEST burger i've tasted by far, the well executed, greasy burger type joints like rick's can be quite tasty too when the context is right. this cheeseburger came with well toasted buns, a thin meat patty (it could have been thicker and more flavorful, but for $3.81, what the heck right?), smothered in a thousand island-esque dressing, tomato slices, and tons of shredded iceburg lettuce....mmmm....

my first bite was quickly followed by a second, a third, and so on until it was all gone. *burp* here's to my friday happy hour with rick!


  1. gaddaaaammit woman, now you have me thinking BURGER BURGER BURGER.. I must get me some now.

  2. the call of the BURGER is a hard one to resist my lad.

  3. not one scrap of cheese, not one scraggle of lettuce, nothing... it's like it was vaporized with a Star Trek phaser. *high five*

  4. i don't mess when it comes to food.
