Liz Lemon has sandwiches.

Leslie Knope has waffles

Mindy Lahiri has pizza.

And well I…. I have chicken.

Yes, I just compared myself to some of the most hilarious women of the 21st century… Mostly because I love them. But also because they poke fun at everything, including what they eat.

And well all the people who know me in internet/ or real life… in which I am the same giggly and self-deprecating person… know I am cuckoo for cocoa puffs about chicken.

I like to eat chicken.

I like to draw chicken,

I like to wear chicken inspired jewelry:

I can honestly tell you that I feel like the Grand Duchess of Luxembourg while wearing this necklace…  Of course only if the Grand Duchess of Luxembourg wore sensible sweaters.

And tonight is an especially important night for me and chicken because this is the night… when I eat fried chicken.

And I’m going to wear my chicken necklace with exorbitant joy tonight as I feast upon it’s less sparkly bretheren.

Tonight. We dine on Chicken!

Eat something super delicious tonight… with all sorts of glee and at least 7 other joys.

Happy Birthday Tony!

There is nothing I like better than a birthday! The only way a birthday can be made is by taking place on Fried Chicken Day… and the birthday on glorious Fried Chicken Day is none other than my Brother Tony’s Birthday! My brother is a totally rad dude, he’s a super talented artist and is an incredible dad and snazzy dancer!

Now the only thing that super rad about my brothers birthday is that he lives so far away, in leafy green Montana. So I don’t get to see his actual face today… and that means I have to make something special happen…

So you know what’s going to happen… a doodle!

Happy Birthday Tony! I hope you had a wonderful day and a fabulous birthday week. I am thinking you need some secret Chinese food to make this week really special!

♥ and Lollipops and Happy Birthdays,
Lauren

Sometimes Dreams Really Do Come True

We all have trials and tribulations, some bigger than others.

Some that stay with us for our entire life, this doodle shares with you some of the hardships I faced as a child:

And for those who know about how much I like chicken, you can just imagine the heartache. But now that I make my own money, and am an adult, I can eat all the chicken that I need to get by (and, then some.)

For those of you unfamiliar with my love of chicken, here is a great example of my relationship with chicken:

Have a Happy Friday!

P.S. Also on a side note into my real life… Today my recently engaged sister purchased her wedding dress, and I got my bridesmaid dress. Chicken was had by all!

Also next week there will be so many more professional quotes!

6. They are more patriotic than turkeys…

7. They have beautiful houses

8. Lauren likes to draw them:

9. They stand up for what we believe in

10. They are delicious in original recipe

Jimmy’s conclusion: thank you chickens!

Hot Dog: a Summer Mystery

Okay yeah I know this is a weird postie.

But here I will reveal some inner truths about myself. As most people know I’m an avid chicken fan, and fan of Dr. Pepper…

But I will tell you what I am not a fan of… a nasty summer treat we call… Hot Dogs. Sorry Oscar Mayer you may want to turn away.

Now, I don’t mind the occasional delicious hot dog. Seriously but I’m not going to munch away on anything that looks like this:

SO GROSS.
SO GROSS.

Seriously. And I totally like crispy burnt food. But not meat rods that had been severely toasted, never going to eat it.

 And for easy reference on how much hot dogs gross me out… Isabel this is on par with sticky floors…

I don’t dislike every type of hot dog, for example I do share different feelings about corn dogs… ESPECIALLY WITH MUSTARD:

remember this at times when you barbeque… do you always have more hot dogs left over than hamburgers… there is a reason.

Nuggets

I had some chicken nuggets for lunch.

and it gave me enough energy to upload the mass amounts of photos of Eric, Jimmy… and even Isabel.

I think  I should be sponsored by chicken associations. Spread the word.

Where is my crispy goodness?

I have a sad tale to tell.

And I’m going to start with a reference to Christine’s recent graduation. How do you deal with disappointment?

In recent times people have become obsessed with the idea of being healthy, although most people just loaf about downing caffeine like water while watchin’ Oprah. But I must admit, I’m fine with health nuts… I even cavort about town with them. I have no problem if you like go to Trader Joe’s and spend an exorbitant amount of money on oranges… see if I care.

But I do care about certain things, like chicken. Everyone that knows me knows how I feel about chicken… you can keep your cow, pig or squirrel (or whatever meat you like) and just hand me some chicken. I’ll be happy.

I must also admit… I love all types of chicken. Seriously, it’s all good (except beaks and feet, thank you) Especially my beloved fried chicken. A favorite at diners, amusement parks and with the Colonel.

Now as I mentioned the world is becoming healthier. And as an added observation, some extremists like to ruin things for everyone.  And they usually start this by accusing companies like McDonalds of killing and endangering children. When there has never been an actual case of Ronald McDonald threatening mothers to buy Crispy-Mc-This-and-that’s or he was going to blow their brains out. It is quite honestly people’s penchant to overindulge and Mc Flurry themselves to death. Yet again, NOT MY PROBLEM.

It is my problem when you those said extremists get to big corporations and they eradicate the problem so they no longer have to hear about it.

Little did I know about Disneyland’s new food menu.

I went to Disneyland and after a few rides I said “mmmm fried chicken sounds good.” So I scooted my way to the French Market, which serves fried chicken and taters as well as clam chowder in a loaf. Or so I thought.

I stared at the menu, and it glared back FRIED CHICKENLESS. The closest thing they had to offer was Citrus Glazed Chicken. Which although delicious sounding was not what I craved.

So I ran to the Riverboat Terrace to see if my nightmare was a reality. When I saw that they had only Turkey breast, and salad on their menu… my heart broke, for Disney had shunned my fried chicken.

Banished it even.

When I asked why? I was told to buy chicken nuggets… NUGGETS!! There shall be no $7.00 circular nuggets for me, thank you.

Now Fried Chicken only exists at the Plaza Inn (the loudest and most child infested restaurant in the Magical Kingdom), for $14.

Rain on my dreams and dash all my hope of golden delicious chicken. It’s not like I bathe in the chicken or force it on toddlers…. I just like it’s Americana like deliciousness.

And finally, shame on the hippies… I would never make anyone take tofu off the menu.
