Creature Of Habit

No mattah how many times I tell myself to try something different, unless I'm traveling, I tend not to. I guess it's cause most times than not every time I do, I either don't enjoy it or am disappointed by it somehow. And then of course it's always compared to da good old' stand-by dat I'd always get anyways.

Last night, Da Wife and I both got home late and was too tired to do any type of cooking and naturally decided to go back out and pick something up.

Da Wife: I don't feel like cooking, can you pick something up?
BL: Surah. Wat you like?
Da Wife: I don't care. What do you want?
BL: Watevahs.
Da Wife: What do you feel like eating?
BL: (same conversation all da time so I changed dis up) You wanna eat Daiichi?
Da Wife: No.
BL: :roll: (rolling my eyes big time! I thought she said she didn't care??) Ok 'den.... I feel like Subways but I know you no like.... wat about L&L?
Da Wife: Ok. (picking up da phone to call in) What do you want from there?
BL: Same thing.

It's always da same places: L&L, Subways or Daiichi with McDonald's always being a fallback choice. Then there are da times we feel for something just a bit different and will venture to Kapiolani Coffee Shop, Chun Wah Kam or Panda's. Da Wife is one dat no like da kine same thing all da time so she choose something different most times but no mattah wat place we choose, it's always da same for me no mattah wat.

L&L - it's da chicken katsu curry, all brown rice, curry all ovah.
Subways - watevah is da $6 footlong sub of da month on honey oat, all da veggies extra tomatoes, pepperjack cheese, no oil/vinegar, salt and peppah.
Daiichi - combo mini miso udon, curry rice and chicken katsu.
McDonald's - It's a coin flip for either da grilled chicken or da angus deluxe sandwich, no mayo with a diet coke add two lemons.
Kapiolani Coffee Shop - I no get nothing cause they charge too much and give too little but I only order da chop steak and I really dunno why cause da meat is tough and fo' some reason I always get da chopped fat instead of meat. (Wassup Wit Dat!)
Chun Wah Kam - hea's da only place I may try something different but it's only cause they run out of stuff but da first choice is always half chow fun/half chow mein, garlic chicken and spicy eggplant.
Panda's - almost da same thing half chow fun/half chow mein, orange chicken and spicy eggplant.

No mattah wat da place and no mattah how many times I've tried different things, I always end back to da same thing. Da funniest WWD! moment is wen you'd stand in front of da menu staring and reading at all da choices, contemplating wat you like or wat you like try different, get to da cashier still glaring at da menu, stuttering "uh, uh" and then ordering wat you always order anyways.

Wassup Wit Dat! :lol:

Wat's your regulah fall back place for grind when you no like cook? Do you always get da same thing? Does your conversation with whomevah is picking up da grindz da same - "Yeah, just get me da same thing" or "You know wat I always get." Have you tried to order something different or is it too much of a shock? If you evah ventured out of your comfort zone, have you been disappointed or have you been converted to a "new" choice?

And no, lie. You one of those dat mutter to yourself standing behind those "uh, uh" people, "just order already!" yeah? :razz:

    Just last night I picked up some KFC. Taste good with a little hot sauce. But if I no like drive, Spam with eggs is my fallback menu.


  2. che:

    Rainbows I always get the boneless chicken with gravy over everything.

    Likelike drive-in or Zippys, I get the saimin with a order of french fries.

    McDonalds most of the time it's the Big Mac and fries.


  3. M:

    Guud morning BL!
    I la dat too always get da same ting.

    Rainbows, boneless chicken
    L&L, chicken katsu
    Subway, 6 dallah foot long, forrest black ham wit everyting.
    McD's, big mac
    Burger King, whopper
    Chinese, chow funn
    Vietnamese, bun wit bbq pork


  4. lowtone123:

    I think men in general are that way I know I am. When we go out to eat I will scan the menu and if something catches my eye I will try it or if they are known for a specific dish I may try it. If I don't see anything interesting I go to my fall back choices like Chicken Katsu, Saimin or Ramen (or fried noodles), any type of roast or stew, or anything with chili on it.


  5. lowtone123:

    BL, that conversation sounds like the one's my wife and I used to have. It goes like this...
    Me: What do you feel like eating?
    Wife: Anything.
    Me: Hows about plate lunch?
    Wife: I don't want to eat rice.
    Me: (she did say anything, right?)
    Me: Hows about a burger or a sandwich?
    Wife: Nah.
    And it goes like dat for about 10 minutes till I hit on something or she settles on something. Now our conversations goes like this...
    Me: What do you feel like eating?
    Wife: Anything. What do you feel like eating?
    Me: Whatever, you choose.
    Wife: I can't decide what to eat.
    Me: Then you decide on the place. Wherever the place I can find something to eat.

    You and your wife must be overweight.


  7. cojef:

    Had 2 good laughs wen reading "Braddah Lance" and "lowtone123" conversation with wives. Just like our place, guess it must be the same with most couples. Starts with "anything" and the "nahs" and finally settling for the old stand-by. Why the conversation ensues is a mystery, and it is probably a couple's efforts to please the other half, still knowing how it will end. The same type of conversation ensues when wife calls her sister to go out for lunch or dinner. Starts out about restaurant choices, response "anywhere", then "you the driver you decide", and ends up to a few choices, like the same place you went the week before. Routines, habits, you name.


  8. M:

    gotto have extra hot sauce.... winnahs


  12. Uncle Rodney:

    I hate it when I waste one good hungry. Wot dat you ask? K-den, I goin tell you.

    Dat's when you supa-dupa hungry and like grind all kines stuff. But instead of getting da same ol', you try sumptin different. And turn out junk. "Crap, I jus wen waste one good hungry!"


  13. dave:

    I like the markdown leftovers from Foodland! Cheap and easy, and ready to EAT!!


  14. NKHEA:

    UR; uh


  15. kamaaina808:

    Well I guess I'm lucky since I'm vegetarian, I get plenty choices @ Down to Earth - hot bar, salad bar - and can mix it up. When I go Chinese, it's always "cashew tofu veggie stir fry, no oyster/fish sauce, no msg." One time Ms. Kitty (the waitress) says, "No fish sauce, no oyster sauce, no MSG... so, no flavah den, yeah?" :rolleyes: :P

    When I go Saigon Noodle house it's either veggie pho w/ long rice & veggie spring rolls - or tofu/veggie stir fry w/ side salad. Pretty good stuff! Mexican - it's rice, bean & cheese burrito, plenty of lettuce & cabbage, pico de gallo, 'green sauce,' no sour cream, extra guac OR nachos w/black beans with cheese & enchilada sauce (super ono!). Subway, basically $6 italian herb w/everything (but meats), regular mustard, oil/vinegar, salt/pepper, & banana peppers.

    I like to eat a variety of foods, but my fall-back is Zippy's vegetarian chili/brown rice OR french fries - depends on the mood my tongue is in. :-)


  16. DIO:

    BL: Next time, try doing the opposite. Instead of asking "whea you like eat?" Ask the opposite, "whea you NO like eat?" Sometimes it's easier to get an answer this way, than the other way.


  17. DIO:

    UR: That's why you gotta try and see if there's mix plate, so you only risk wasting half a hungry.


  18. DIO:

    kamaaina808: if you're looking for a place to eat, try Loving Hut. It's a vegan franchise with locations in various cities. There's 2 in Honolulu.

    http://www.lovinghut.us/


  19. M:

    Loving Hut iz winnahs. My favorite vegan place to grind.


  20. kamaaina808:

    @DIO - Hey, mahaloz for the suggestion! i'll give it a try... once i get some transportation. My sole means of getting around (mobility scooter) just died tonight!! :(


  21. M:

    Guud morning BL!
    Happy Aloha Friday! and FGF!


  22. wafan:

    Being single no one else to blame if I do not like the restaurant. And, yes, the same thing mainlyl because I tried the other stuff and was not so good.

    Yeah, those leftovahs really do hit da spot sometimes but you just gotta know wea fo' go. I know St.Germaine's at Ala Moana puts all their leftovahs near closing into a bag and sell 'em fo' cheap. Sam's even marks down their sushi and fried fish near closing. And da Chinese place in da Ala Moana food court near closing has ALL their plates and dim sum at 50% off!

    I guess you do cause you can just go practically anywea and get greens. :grin:

    "No fish sauce, no oyster sauce, no MSG... so, no flavah den, yeah?" :rolleyes:

    You could always say, "I guess I walking out... no money for you 'den yeah?" :lol:

    I like to eat a variety of foods, but my fall-back is Zippy's vegetarian chili/brownI tried da vegetarian chili once and it's a totally different texture and I tink a bit more tangy.
