A Wild Saturday Night.  
So I had like a good, but ridiculous evening last night. My sister had to run Dad's groceries out to him, so I asked her to bring me coney dogs from the place down the street from his house - this is our childhood home and we had a Frosty King right down the street, so you can imagine we frequented that a lot - and they have the best coneys I have ever had, omg. So she was gonna bring me two coneys with mustard. When she came back, she said she had a surprise for me. I pulled an extra container out of the bag and thought, 'Oh cool, she got me chili cheese fries too.' Nope. She got me Funnel Fries. No, okay, l I have never heard of these before, but they are like funnel cakes in the shape of french fries. Like french fry shaped pieces of crispy funnel cake bread covered in sugar. OMG, FUNNEL FRIES. It's like going to the fair and getting funnel cake, but without the hassle of going to the fair!!! The best coney dogs ever and funnel fries, omg, if only I could get this place to be open year round, my life would be complete.

Then my sister wanted to play Monopoly. I got her a Walking Dead version for her birthday and we've been playing quite a bit lately. I've only beat her once so far, but considering I never beat her at anything, I'll take it. So we were playing Monopoly when she gets a text from her 'work-wife' who is at a Disney themed wedding. Apparently she took pictures of all the Disney themed center pieces and sent it to all her coworkers and was making them vote on the best one. She continued to text about the Disney themed wedding all night and it was like a mass conversation going on between them, like dudes, you'll all see each other on Monday, calm down. I may have muttered something about, 'those losers' under my breath and the next thing I know I am involved in this madness and texting back at them, idek. My sister sold me out. Finally one of her coworkers, the geek dude, texts everyone asking, "Is it lame that I am 32 and home alone on a Saturday night, popping popcorn and about to watch Beauty and The Beast? Whatever, I don't care, I'm doing it anyways." These are the people my sister works with. Anyways, despite that I started out with way more properties and a shit ton more money than her, my sister somehow still beat me at Monopoly. I just sat at the table, screaming, "What did I do wrong?!" while my sister laughed so hard I thought she was going to pee her pants.

So, that's what I did last night.

It SO is!! We stopped there one day on our way out to visit Dad, so we picked some up. Sis handed him one and he put it in his mouth and it was like, omg, he made the craziest face and then it was like butter was melting in his mouth. He had no idea they sold them and that he could have been eating them all summer long!

Funnel fries sound fantastic as I love funnel cake and its messiness but that size is great.

Your sister works with great people.

YES! You can eat funnel fries in the car, while walking around, etc and not have to worry about the mess, about getting it all down your shirt front or anything. I support everyone turning their funnel cake into fries! Funnel Fries 2k15!

Your sister works with great people.

She does. I mean, they work in records management and electronic records, so they are of course total nerds, but I knew that!

I am catching up on comments and I came across these about The Frosty King and now I am sad because they closed their doors for the season the week before Thanksgiving and now I can't get any coneys or funnel fries until April! :(

(also, I just noticed your icon, omg! Perfect for this conversation about junk food!)

This is pretty appropriate, too.

How's your mom doing? Recovering well, I hope.

Sounds like an awesome night! Funnel fries - I would never eat anything else!

I have been pretty much sleeping around the clock since seeing the doc Thursday. And I called out for tomorrow too. That'll be three days out of work plus the weekend for getting better. Five days, man. I can't remember the last time I was laid up for five days.

Open House Tuesday night, too. Whee.

Trust me, if this place was open year round, I WOULD never eat anything else!

You know what? I am catching up on old comments here - this one from August - and you were sick then too. What's going on with you, how come you're sick all the time? Now I'm worried! Are you feeling better now, from this latest thing, at least? I feel so aggressively angry about the fact that you keep being sick, idek.
Ironlily - Making My Marquevikingprincess on December 8th, 2015 10:58 pm (UTC)
I'm totally feeling better now - just coughing up remnants of lung junk. I'm feeling energetic and everything!
dodger_sister: annoyeddodger_sister on December 8th, 2015 11:08 pm (UTC)
Good! Keep it up!

Sis says it helps to have someone aggressively tuck you in and then lay on top of you - idek, I think that makes HER feel better to do for me. I do like a good aggressive tuck in, but I forbid her from laying on top of me! But if that's what you need, babe, I will come there and do that for you!

Hey, pick on someone your own size, girly! :P
dodger_sister: annoyeddodger_sister on December 9th, 2015 02:17 am (UTC)
By someone my own size, you mean much shorter than you, yes? Perhaps a 10 yr old then. ;)
Ironlily - Making My Marquevikingprincess on December 9th, 2015 12:21 pm (UTC)
Precisely!

Thank you!! LOL The fair is the worst though. I don't ride any rides and I don't need to look at the livestock, my grandparents owned a farm, I've seen plenty of livestock! I don't care about the arts and crafts barn either so...yeah, I only like the fair for the food. Which means like $50 for parking and tickets to the fair itself and then buying the food on top of it...yeah, no. Now that my ice cream place sells funnel fries, I never have to go to the fair again!!!

what a night! lol It actually sounds like a hell of a good time. And the funnel fries! Those sound amazing. I need to go to the fair now

It was a ridiculously good night hanging with The Sis. I know we live together, but that's all we generally do is live together - it's nice to have a night just hanging out and actually playing around and stuff.

Funnel fries ARE amazing! And the genius of them being sold at the ice cream place down the road from Dad's is...I never have to go to the fair again!!

lol, I actually like the fair, tho I can understand why you wouldn't. I'm a huge fan of just looking at stuff so I really like things like the state fair where there are all the different things to look at.
dodger_sister: fooddodger_sister on December 11th, 2015 03:25 am (UTC)
A state fair might be nice, more attractions. Our local county fair has mostly rides, which yeah, are no good for me. And to look at we have a arts n crafts barn, filled with mostly old church lady crafties and then award winning livestock, which like I basically grew up on grandparents farm, so I've had enough cows for awhile. Lol. Miss being able ride rides, but someone will have to carry me on to and off of rides, so until I get like Jayne Cobb to escort me to the fair, imma sit them out. ;)

Edited to say can you imagine how expensive it would be to fill Jayne's stomach with fair food?

I haven't been to our State Fair in awhile, but I remember it mostly being 4-H and old lady craft-y stuff along with food competitions and live stock and old farm equipment and stuff like that. I love the rides and midway games. But yeah, expensive!

Walking Dead Monopoly -- that is great. Someday I really want to play this:
clue
dodger_sister: fooddodger_sister on December 8th, 2015 11:05 pm (UTC)
OMG WHAT?!?! That looks awesome!!!!! SPN CLUE, OMG! /Hot Topic, takes note/

We have The Simpsons Clue which is pretty cool. And Lord of the Rings Risk. And Walking Dead Monopoly. Lord of the Rings Chess. Shrek Operation. XMen UNO. Oh and we had Star Wars Life, but we never played it hardly at all, so we transformed it into SPN Life. We use one of the guns from our action figures as The Colt - I think it belonged to action figure Jayne Cobb. You get more points if you retire from the Hunter's life with the colt still in possession. Myabe you saw pics of this insanity up on my sister's journal, years back when we made the thing?
ranuaranua on December 10th, 2015 11:46 pm (UTC)
I actually have that version and it's pretty good. It plays fast, at least for us it did, but very fun. (there's also a Firefly Clue)
dodger_sister: omgdodger_sister on December 11th, 2015 03:28 am (UTC)
FIREFLY CLUE?! Where do I find that - also at Hot Topic? /adds to list/
ranuaranua on December 13th, 2015 12:32 pm (UTC)
yep, Hot Topic :D
