Definition of Amibition

Baby Girl told us that she's going to be a doctor, dentist, AND a police officer. She even laid out a schedule for us as follows:
Saturday-Police Officer

The other days of the week she will be a princess, clean houses, visit people, help people if they are sick (yes, that's similar to being a doctor...but this is different), & get medicine for moms n dads n kids if they are sick.

And she said she's going to do these things at these times of day-- 6:00, 9:00, 10:00, 1:00, 7:00, and 8:00.

Quotation from April 10, 2008

"This music hits the spot where I want music," says Baby Girl while listening to the pink ipod shuffle.

Cheesesteak Edumacation

Living this close to Philly, I think I'm finally getting educated in cheesesteak-ese. Though I've never had one, nor do I plan to have one, it's common knowledge out here that there's special etiquette when ordering cheesesteaks.

whiz wit = cheesesteak with onions, with cheez whiz
witout = no onions

Stuck on Pizza

I continue to find it disheartening that I am unable to find pizza out east that I really like. I mean, besides the Papa John's and Pizza Huts which you know are standard. It's really been quite a challenge to find a good pizza joint after having grown up with such exquisite pizza fare in the midwest ;-)

Truly, I think it has to do with how pizza places out here don't sell ONLY pizza. All the pizza places are pretty much full-menu restaurants. Steaks (short for cheesesteaks), wings, salads, hoagies. How can they possibly perfect their pizza when there's so much other food to think about, too.

Seems to me that the people out east don't know what they're missing when it comes to pizza.

I'm excited for the inception of a Ci-Ci's Pizza Buffet http://www.cicispizza.com/Default_flash.asp in Lancaster. It'll still be nearly an hour and a half drive, but better than the drive I'd have to take now to get to the closest one, which is in Baltimore.

If I ever do find the prized pizza, you'll be the first to know.
