Hi gang! What a great weekend! Dave and I were able to get tickets to Saturday's Pitt basketball game. Fun? Oh yeah. Then we went to Primanti Brothers for a late dinner of Primanti's sandwiches.
What? You haven't heard of the Primanti's sandwich? I'm sad to say that no photo can capture its deliciousness, but here's one I found via Google Images.My favorite is a Cap and Egg without cheese. (capicola, for those of you non-Pittsburghers) Perfect. A Primanti sandwich is a generous helping of meat(s), cheese, tangy coleslaw, tomatoes, and fries all stuffed between two fat pieces of Italian bread. I know it sounds crazy, and it's ridiculously messy. And when you take that first bite, your mouth sings.
Of course, Dave and I have old-timers bragging rights, because when we were in college, we went to the original Primanti's, in the Strip District of Pittsburgh. Back then, there was only one restaurant - a little counter service place that was kind of a dive. No. Not kind of. It was a dive. And it didn't open until midnight, because it served truck drivers who were delivering to the Strip in the middle of the night. And they served college students who had stayed out at bars and parties for way too long. Well, I wouldn't say that we were ever "served". We'd order food, but then we'd all be served whatever came off the grill (usually cheeseburgers), and if you complained, they would say take it or leave it. We would take it. It was delicious anyway, So we were tolerated, at best. We were probably obnoxious.
Oh, I could tell you stories....
But let's move on.
I finally finished this exchange block! The theme was "Red", and this design is from LHN, but I adapted it to fit the block size.
And I saw a blogger playing one of these funny Google games, and there's nothing more fun than seeing your own name in silly situations. So here's the game. Go to Google, and search for "Unfortunately, (your name here). Then I picked my favorites. And they are:
Unfortunately, Lee did not sing on this album.
Unfortunately, Lee required a few stitches from employees.
Unfortunately, Lee has me beat by A LOT in two departments... talent and age.
Unfortunately, Lee’s talents don’t extend to the jumble of cloying Asian-fusion desserts.
Unfortunately Lee's hopes for a top-five finish were dashed.
Unfortunately, Lee forgot to do one teeny, tiny thing that could have helped.
