gourmetpigs said...

Hahaha, good to know Diana! I'll have to be more careful now ...

And stuffycheaks: that's about 12 bar method sessions! :P

Ashley said...

An injury and violence prevention campaign for food bloggers. I like it.

Nick said...

Sorry to hear about the ticket :(

I'm definitely going to be more careful from now on. I'd hate to skip over 25 meals at Bawarchi.

And 500 tacos from jack in the box!

Like the food things. Dislike the ticket.

Stephanie, Fiona - Bar Method was actually the first thing that came to mind when I got the ticket! That's a 10-series and then some! Boo.

Ashley - I'm starting up the social media campaign against texting/tweeting while driving. While not driving, of course. ;)

Nick - Please do! It's really better that we all put our phones down anyway. Maybe we'd actually get to our destinations faster if we were paying more attention to the road.

Roxan - Haha, not too sad to be missing out on that one! ;)

Esi - Yep, me too! But the worst part is that I have no one to blame but myself. I deserved it. :(

Sorry to hear about the ticket! Though I love seeing someone else think in 'units of Mozza' - I thought I was the only one! ;)

Bianca said...

Loving the list until I saw the last item of course. I'm so sorry for your tix :( Didn't realize the fine was THAT much either. I'll be super careful now.

Gastronomer said...

Sorry about the ticket, woman. This post, on the other hand, rules in all sorts of ways!
