Lunch On The Fly

JANUSFILES2 . . . ENTRY #0106 . . . OPEN:

Yesterday, I decided to get lunch from Lemongrass Cafe. The main reason for my choice was that I hadn't picked up anything from there recently, and I was having something of a craving for their food. (It was also on my way to work from the Eline/St. Matthews library.)

I decided to get the Almond Fried Chicken lunch special, because I don't think I had ordered that from them before. (And because I hadn't bothered with breakfast, I also grabbed a couple of double cheeseburgers from Burger King on the way to work as well.)

When she saw my lunch, Emma wondered what I had ordered. She thought I had ordered something from Oriental House, and she didn't quite recognize it. It does look similar to a couple of Oriental House's lunch specials, but the addition of the almonds threw her off.

The food was delicious, as usual. And of course, there was the fortune cookie at the end of the meal, with the following fortune:

"Luck is coming your way."

[ADDENDUM: I was looking through previous entries, and it appears that I have ordered the Almond Fried Chicken before. And I will probably order it again, because I like it.]

Once More, To The Mall

JANUSFILES2 . . . ENTRY #0105 . . . OPEN:

Yesterday, I made a quick stop by Jefferson Mall. Only a few minutes this time; I had gone by the post office, and was really waiting for the bus.

In fact, my main reason for even going into the mall was to use the restroom in the food court. Once I was finished there, I stopped by Max Orient. I gave into temptation, and bought a half dozen fortune cookies.

As usual, I waited until I was at the computer to crack them open. Here are the fortunes, in alphabetical order:

"A pleasant surprise is in store for you soon in the coming week."*
"Adjust finances -- make budgets, to improve your financial standing."
"Soon you will receive a letter from a loved one"**
"Unveil your ideas. Be ready to act on them."
"You will soon meet a life long kindred spirit."
"Your qualities overshadow your weaknesses."

*This one did turn out to be correct. I got my laptop out of the repair shop today. Nothing serious, thank goodness.

**These days, it's more likely to be an email.
