With Sherpas, that’s how.

Have I written about this yet?? Sherpa’s is a ridiculously awesome food delivery service. They provide you with a small book with a ton of menus for local restuarants. You call Sherpas, order with them in English, and then they call the restaurant and make the order. A short time later amazing hot food is delivered to your door! Bam!

Basically Sherpa’s = Awesomeness.

What is Cheddar Cheese?

cheddar cheeseTo be or not to be? That is the question?

No. The question is, what is cheddar cheese?

I ask because either I don’t know or the Chinese people don’t. I know it exists. I know it exists here. In fact, on several successful shopping trips I have picked up some sharp and medium cheddar and it’s been delicious. So then I ask why is it that every time I order something with cheddar cheese does it come with a different kind of cheese? Right now for example, I am at the Coffee Bean enjoying what I thought was going to be a turkey and cheddar sandwich, instead I got turkey and provolone. Yesterday, feeling a little rebellious I ordered a cheeseburger with cheddar cheese. It came with swiss. Don’t get me wrong I appreciate all kinds of cheese but when you’re expecting one thing and you get another… it’s sad. It’s like getting into Harvard but not getting a dorm.

And yes I think cheese is just as relevant as Harvard.

Why advertise cheddar? Why be so specific? And then lie? Why play with my emotions?
