I hate it when people use the word craze. It's like they chopped off part of the word. Like if you say, "This day has just been so craze." or "My god that puppy is just so adorbs." or "Isn't she a beaut?" or "I'm so excite, and I just can't hide." I'm not making any sense am I? (What you're actually seeing is the effect of sleep deprivation on the mind.)
I don't really hate the word craze. I'm just too busy picking up my brain cells from the floor to like it. So right now isn't the best time to come at me using the word craze. Right now I really really dislike that word. Craze. It's half a word!
And just so you know, I wrote those two paragraphs above just so I could justify writing the next sentence below.
MANILA SWEPT IN THE IHOP CRAZY.
|Because that's what. it. is. crazy.|
We went the day it opened for a late lunch. Already expecting long waiting lines, we dropped our names for a table then parked the car. By the time we had found parking and walked back to the restaurant, it was another 10-15 minutes of waiting. Not so bad. Of course I hear, as the days progressed, the lines just got crazier. (see, it's ok to add syllables, not chop them off)
|Everyone takes this photo. EVERYONE.|
|You also took a photo of this.|
|Omelette with steak and hash inside.|
|Fried chicken dinner.|
|Believe it or not, this was our dessert.|
This was a real taste of America. The food is plated simply, like most americans, direct and straight to the point. No parsley anywhere! For the life of me I just can't understand what our local restauranteurs fascination is with parsley. Must we put parsley in every dish?
I think I need more IHOP before they lock me up.
