Leading Off (7/23/08)

1. Police arrested a man they believe is the Uptown burglar, a person who was breaking into apartments in Uptown and taking hours to go through people’s stuff. Turns out he lives in Hurst, which, given traffic trying to get back to the mid-cities, explains why he took his time.

2. Hurricane Dolly heads toward the Texas-Mexico border and could reach it late today. To prepare, she’s doing tequila shots and hiding her money in her shoe.

3. Couldn’t get jalapenos at Taco Diner yesterday, and you can’t get ’em at Central market, or Glorias, or many other places because of the salmonella problem. You can still get them at Subway, though, so I can still get my meatball sandwich, extra bread.

    I think they actually believe he’s the Uptown burglar.

    Re extra bread: Nice Liz Lemon reference…

    Ironically, despite their slogan (Eat Fresh!), I think the jalapenos at Subway are not affected as they are not fresh.

    You do have a piece of lettuce in your hair though.

    Taco Cabana still happily serves jalapenos and swears that they are muy safe.

    As long as they get the jalapeno situation resolved in time for Stars/Mavs seasons, life will go on — ain’t nuthin’ finer than enjoying a game with a bucket of AAC Nachos in your lap!

  7. Wes Mantooth says:

    Personally, I find this hurricane situation to be so surreal.

  8. Puddin'Tane says:

    AAC nachos with plenty of Rico cheese. Nothing says quality more than processed cheese from a can.

    Creamy goodness.

    pressurized cheese! pasteurized to boot!
