Random Thoughts Thursday 155

  • Two years ago, I wrote about the ponytail rule my middle school track coach had –
    he didn’t want to see any lateral sway in our ponytails when we ran. The implication was that it meant you were running inefficiently. In the comments, we couldn’t figure out WHY. Well, guess what I saw in an article in the November/December issue of Chicago Athlete? A somewhat explanation. Ha! I am still going to wear my hair in a bun and not worry about it though.

  • Anyone who eats out with me knows that I LOVE Red Robin because they have a vegan and vegetarian burger option, and bottomless (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) fries. They are phasing out those burger options though, and replacing it with just one vegan* “ancient-grain-and-quinoa” (read: “trying to look healthy”) burger, and guess what? It’s gross (taste and texture). So gross I didn’t finish my burger last time I was there and I ALWAYS FINISH MY FOOD. Why Red Robin, why? Steven emailed them last month about the change and they sent some generic response. I emailed them again this week pleading they bring back the Boca burger (no response yet). That used to be my easy go to place with big groups of people, and I don’t think it will be anymore. Bummer.

  • A local station started playing holiday music on Tuesday. Yay! I love holiday music, and it’s fun when the season is over, because then I get to hear all the new tunes I missed when they came out because I was listening to holiday music.
  • Has anyone else started using the new google calendar? I like how it adds images to some of my events based on the title, like this one with swimming:

*They told us it was vegan on the phone, but we can’t confirm it on their website

    That makes me sad about Red Robin! I am a meat eater but when I go there I typically sub the veggie burger since it’s tasty and I can still get the fun toppings plus bottomless fries!

    Most big chains like that have horrible vegetarian/vegan options 🙁
    Glad you solved the mastery. I have a ponytail for the first time in years I’ll have to see if mine swings.

    Boo to the change at Red Robin. I really liked it and haven’t been there in a while. I had no idea they were changing out their veggie options 🙁

      Let me know what you think of the new one if you go (and if yours has made the change). Then write a letter and complain if you don’t like it. Ha ha ha. 🙂

    Confession: back when my hair was long, I loved how my swinging ponytail looked in race pictures – even though I know I wasn’t running fast, it made me look fast!

    I love Red Robin, but we have to go to Houston to get to one so it’s a once or twice per year treat for me. Sucks that they changed the vegan menu…they have so many offerings for meat eaters, why can’t they have a couple of good ones for non-meat eaters??

    • kilax says:

      Agreed! It does look that way.

      It would be better for me if Red Robin were that far away 😉 ha ha ha. I really wonder why they took these away. Must have not been making much profit on them.
