McDonald's Proof

Finished my first real week of work. It was pretty good actually. We're basically just slogging though cases in the typechecker, if you know what that means.

What is up with these commercials for McDonald's new Southern Style Chicken sandwich? They make it seem like they are out to change the world or something. It's an obvious attempt to copy Chick-Fil-A's delicious chicken sandwich which cannot be topped. The commercials are so humorously over the top that I think it's an Army commercial until they mention chicken.

Saw Indiana Jones last night at the Alamo Drafthouse. As far as I can tell everyone in Austin knows and loves the Alamo Drafthouse because everyone I have met here has told me about it. They serve full meals to your seat, and have a great selection of beer. It was unsurprisingly great! If the same thing existed in Los Angeles, the dinner would cost seventy dollars.


  1. I hear the Alamo drafthouse is amazing -- we were lamenting the lack of a cinema and drafthouse in Philly the other day. And Indian Jones was great summer fun! Have a great time exploring the city this summer -- I loved the weekend I spend there last year!

  2. Yeah, now that I've seen how well they can pull it off here, I'm a little surprised that there aren't places like this in more cities. LA, would be a perfect place to have one, at the very least!
