Now *That* is a Dilemma
I need help. Stop laughing. I really need help. I’m in a piggy dilemma. Me and mom are both feeling the same way. Have you ever felt hungry and wanted something but you just didn’t know what you wanted? You have choices – lots of choices. You pick one and afterwards you’re like ick. It just didn’t stop the craving… not that you’re craving anything particular.
Mom and dad go through this scenario all of the time here at the Hotel Thompson. It goes something like this. Mom – “What do you want to eat?” Dad – “I don’t know, you?” Mom – “You want mexican?” Dad – “Not so much, you?” This back and forth of suggestions goes on what seems like hours. And then dad will finally say, “I don’t care, whatever you want to do.” This is usually followed up by mom saying, “Whatever you want to do.” For Pete’s sake – can those two humans make a decision? Snorts.
So then mom will toss a salad. I’m good with a salad but then afterwards we are all like, “Hhhmm, that really didn’t hit the spot.” This can go on for days! What are we to do? What do you do? So you see, that’s why it’s a dilemma.
We are all foodies here at the Hotel Thompson. We take our food serious. Life is way too short not to. Heck, mom is not one of those girly girls that can eat a Saltine cracker and be filled for days. I’m proud of mom for being an eater. But what do you do when you don’t know what will hit “the spot?”
I think personally we may have one way to solve this dilemma. Go with me on this. If we had a full time CHEF that was on staff here at the Hotel Thompson at our beck and call that fed us our meals, we wouldn’t have this back and forth what do you want for dinner situation. Mr. Chef would just whip up his specialties and serve us. We wouldn’t have to cook therefore it would be awesome. Cause you know, food *always* tastes better when someone else cooks it. Am I right?
And of course, we would ALL be happy – especially this oinker. Because then I would have a 24X7 beck and call chef. OH that’s right. I already do in mom and dad – snorts. But really, what do you think? Wouldn’t it be totally awesome?
I wonder if dad would go for this? hhmm – I gotta go leave some clues around the Hotel Thompson. Maybe eventually by 2025 he’ll get the hint.
Happy Eating my Friends!! P.S. Whatta you having tonight for dinner?
Choices – Choices – Choices
Monday brings us a lot of choices in life. It’s the first day of the work week and it starts the ‘feel’ and groove of the new week. It’s another week to start over and fresh. It’s also a great night for television which leads us to choices – choices and more choices. And tonight, we have a dilemma at the Hotel Thompson.
Choice A –
Being Human airs on the SyFy channel. Great show. This show is going on the fourth season and we’ve watched every episode. It’s good. There’s Aidan Waite (a vampire), Sally Malik (a ghost), Josh Levison and Nora Sergeant (werewolves). They all live together and their lives have all intertwined with each other through friendship and surviving their individual ‘characteristics’ that they bring to the show. Season 3 ended with a blast in the title “Ruh Roh”. We have a loose end, Kenny, that can still come back. Liam is gone – so there goes the pure breeds. Sally is now in what should we say – purgatory – with Donna. Josh is again a wolf but there’s some connection to Donna. And, in the last shot of this episode, we see someone that looks like Suzanna (Aidan’s wife) appearing on screen. WTP (What the pig)!? Exciting – totally exciting this fourth season is going to be.
Choice B –
Sleepy Hollow airs on the Fox network tonight. This is the first season for this show and tonight is the season finale – two hours. Hopefully tonight will tie up some loose ends. What happened to Ichabob’s son? How does Abbie play into everything? The show is actually broken into two shows – hour one is titled The Indispensable Man and hour two is titled Bad Blood. Sacrifices are made and loyalties are tested – that’s what I’m reading about that should happen. How in the world could we miss this??
So choices – choices – choices. They both come on at the same time. I don’t have a DVR. I have to pick one over the other which is so hard. And, I don’t want to flip back and forth – I would definitely miss something. You gotta help me out. What’s a little piggy to do? Run back and forth from the living room to my bedroom trying to watch both? I need some help my friends. What will YOU be watching?
