|Yes, those are full size buffet trays.|
Each filled with multiple layers of artery-clogging , delicious treats.
Anyway - on Sunday morning, my two youngest sisters and I decided to attend mass with my Mom. Although none of us are really religious, my Mom is, and it makes her happy when we go to church with her, so we did. Of course, none of us decided we would definitely go until we only had 10 minutes to get out of PJs, comb our hair, and put on some decently non-wrinkled clothes. As we were rushing around upstairs getting ready, my Mom offered to make us coffee to take along on the ride in travel mugs. I happily accepted her offer, and just before going out to the car, I threw some milk into the already-prepared cuppa' and hopped into the car. The coffee was very hot, and I burned my tongue taking the first sip. Needless to say, because the coffee was so hot, I didn't finish all of it on the 10 minute drive to the church. Sad that I had to abandon my coffee in the car, I left the mug in the back seat and begrudgingly went into church with narry a half a cup of coffee trying it's hardest to get me to fire on all cylinders.
Mass was fine, nothing earth shattering happened, although, the homily (the part where the priest talks to the congregation after he's read the gospel), was delivered by Catholic evangelist, Gary Zimak. He didn't have anything earth shattering to talk about either, but he was, at least, interesting to listen to (afterall, you can't be an evangelist and not be charismatic) but, what I got out of his talk was that his facial expressions are extremely similar to those displayed by the actor who plays the character of Nick on one of my favorite TV sitcoms - The New Girl. (His real name is Jake Johnson, but he will forever be Nick to me. He's acted in lots of movies you don't even realize until after you become a fan of The New Girl - like the other day I realized he was in 21 Jump St - saw the movie when it first came out, but didn't realize it until I was watching it on showtime. But, as always, I digress.)
Gary and Jake even look like each other a little bit when they're not making any crazy facial expressions! Case in point:
Take away Mr. Zimak's glasses, and add some grays to Jake's hair, and I think they would look like the same exact person.
This baby doesn't look like much, but it's AWESOME. Seriously. Thermos isn't paying me to say this at all - but hey, guys, if you're reading this and WANT to send me a free one of these gems, I wouldn't object. Just sayin'.
And, the best part? Totally leak free. I literally sat this thing upside down on my desk this morning, (while it was still full) and peeled off a sticker with a bar code from the bottom, and had to keep it that way for probably 5 minutes, to get all that sticky residue off with tape. Not one leak!
Sidenote: why do the companies that make stickers for barcodes not make stuff that peels off cleanly? It's such a pain in the buttox to get that sticky stuff off sometimes. I mean, come on! Thermos can make a container that keeps beverages hot for hours on end. How hard is it to make an adhesive that sticks without leaving behind residue???
Anyway - I think I'll be buying another one of these today. They make one that's red on the outside that I'm kind of in love with. The color change is apparently worth ten more dollars since this one cost me $17.99 and the red one is $27.99 - but honestly, I feel like I will be able to keep this thing for years without having to replace it. Let's hope I'm right!
Sorry for the long post, I'm just SO EXCITED!!!!
Happy 12-12-12 everyone!!!!!
