Moving, Giant Burgers & A Winner

Right now I’m moving.

OK, to be honest, I’m sitting around as the pros move. If you’ve never hired movers let me tell you: It’s the way to go. Best. Idea. Ever.

There are three things I want to tell you in this (short) post:

1. Someone made a 24-ounce burger. When I waitressed, my restaurant served a pound-and-a-half burger. That looks like a slider compared to this behemoth:

Giant burgersource

On that note, I’m never taking The Man to Long Island City because I know for a fact he’ll want to order this and prove he’s man enough by devouring the entire thing. And then I have to hear him whine about his stomach ache and heart palpitations.

2. The winner of the case of Cascade Ice is…

Oh, first, I wanted to tell you to have a good weekend.

And that I’ll be unpacking all weekend.

But why does the box have to gooooo?

And when I want to find that thing I put in a special box because I couldn’t lose it, I’ll be running around the house, razor in hand, opening every box in the place. You know it’ll be in the last box I open.

So, yeah. And now for the winner!

Oh, I forgot to tell you: I live across the street from a Whole Foods.

There goes the budget.

I’m taking donations.

And now to what you really want to know (and possibly already do if you skipped my babbling). According to random.org, the winner of the Cascade Ice case is …

Number 10! That’s Suzy Greer. Congratulations! E-mail me at tracey(at)notsuperhuman(dot)com and I’ll make sure Cascade Ice knows where to send the goods.

Everyone else, thanks for entering and this is your consolation prize:

Q4U: What are you WINNING at?

As much as I hate the process, I agree: I love the fresh start. :)

Hmm. It sounds like you’re moving to Clarendon? Meaning, we’re neighbors?! Hope everything goes well today.

Tracey Reply:

No! We moved to Fairfax. Still not far but no Clarendon. However, cheaper than Clarendon. :)

I don’t envy your unpacking..but I hope you get everything done and your new space nested like you want it! And Whole Foods across the street?! Swoon!!!

I just don’t understand the need for a 2-lb burger. Unless you run an ultramarathon or something.

And if you do feel the need to eat one, don’t you think maybe it should be a little easier to eat? Spread that thing across a pizza pan or something, there’s no way it’s fitting in your mouth…

Yes, I’ve contemplated how to go about eating an actual 2-lb burger…

Oh Amy, you’re always good for a laugh when I wake up.

Good luck with the move today and this weekend. Whole Foods right across the street……WINNING!!! (sorry, couldn’t resist)

[Reply]

Tracey Reply:

Ha ha! I’m glad you couldn’t resist. That was a WINNING comment.

Oh man, that burger should be on Man vs Food! Since I leave near Long Island City I may just have to take the boy… he would love it.

And yay for moving to Fairfax! That’s where my folks live :)

Tracey Reply:

Oh let me know how it is or blog about it! I’ll let The Man live vicariously through The Boy.

I could only get through the first minute and a half…he’s so ridiculous!

Tracey Reply:

Yeah, I can’t tell if he’s acting or if he thinks he’s really on a cooking show.

LOL! Congrats to the winner! Jealous about living across the street from WF. I would eat there every night :)

As for moving..yes, professional movers is THE way to go. No doubt about it. I can throw out my back getting Lily in and out of my SUV…and that just makes me sound old…

[Reply]

Tracey Reply:

I’m afraid I’ll eat there every night. This could be a very bad thing (for my wallet).

You live near Whole Foods? Don’t unpack. Just shop. :)

10 Ashley @ 365 things { 03.11.11 at 12:49 pm }

I love burgers, but that just looks gross…lol.

Good luck with moving. We’re getting packed up and ready to go too. Except from TX to CO. Getting pretty anxious over here.

Tracey Reply:

Oh wow, what a move. Good luck!

Ugh hiring movers DEFINITELY = winning!!

I did the same thing recently – finally got fed up lugging crap all over the place. If you do the research, the cost difference between hiring someone and doing it yourself is minimal and WORTH. EVERY. PENNY.

Good luck with the unpacking!

[Reply]

Tracey Reply:

That’s so right. (Especially considering the cost of bribing friends to help move you yet again.)

12 Carly { 03.11.11 at 5:18 pm }

I have never hired movers, but I have sat on the floor and pouted while my man moved things around me. Kinda the same right?

[Reply]

Tracey Reply:

Totally the same. ;)

oh dear

I cannot imagine what would happen if I lived within WALKING distance of a Whole Foods. Budget = smashed. So glad you had a good move though!

That burger is the size of my head. Wowza!
