I ate at KFC last night, for the first time since arriving in Vancouver.  What a bizarre experience!

No biscuits!  They have no biscuits!  Not that I like the biscuits, actualy, but it was an unexpected absence, like the lack of French ingredients on cereal boxes in the United States.

They also have no macaroni and cheese.  They have no pot pie. No baked beans.  No corn on the cob.  No green beans.  No seasoned rice.  No apple or pecan pie. No mashed potatoes. And the only type of wings they offer are “Hot Wings”  I mean, come on, wings are CHICKEN, how can KFC Canada still be stuck with 1987 wings technology?

They do offer “Chicken Sticks” which are the latest in batter-delivery science.

And, while I’m grousing, there’s this offer they’re currently hawking: “Toonie Tuesdays”—a two-piece chicken special. But my eagle eye spotted those turkeys (f)lying! The actual price is $2.49—that’s one loonie more than a toonie. They’re robin’ us! I say, flip ‘em the bird, make like a drumstick and beat it, KFC Canada.

[Editor’s note: He’s gone cuckoo.]

Overheard

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”

...who said it?
