Stakeout Situation

Some of you may be wondering why there was no update last week on our progress with Bloomy’s, and I have a really easy and disappointing response for you: because we didn’t do a damn thing. The Rhino was on his slamazing non-Canadian Canadian fishing adventure and I was busy keeping the house from falling apart, working on my sunburn, and fulfilling random demands as required by my day job. I did learn something very important and life changing while the Rhino was away though, and that is this: mowing the lawn totally bites! Oh my gosh it sucks so bad. Worst experience of my life.

Ok moving on.

This past Saturday, I decided to launch a covert op which enabled me to put on my Nancy Drew sunglasses and become a top secret sleuth between the hours of 11am and 1:30pm. I unfortunately can’t reveal much about the covert op (hence the “covert” part) or what I was sleuthing, but it did involve the following things: a dark vehicle, a clipboard, a semi-abandoned parking lot, and a pair of shifty eyes (I may or may not have practiced my shifty eyes in the mirror beforehand). I quickly learned that stakeout situations are not nearly as fun as they look in movies, especially seeing as I was flying solo and didn’t have my partner in crime to stake out with me. But, alas, I did obtain valuable information that I immediately dispatched to the Rhino and will totally utilize for the Bloomy’s Business Plan. And I felt super cool too. Pretty much like a combination of Veronica Mars and … that really old lady from Murder She Wrote.

In other news, we’re official! Bloomy’s I mean, not the Rhino and me (psych!). The Secretary of State has personally reserved Bloomy’s Roast Beef for us and no one else can take it! Ta da!

Now that we are official (well, at least semi-official) and incredibly important, I have been working on my professional presentation via wearing faux pearl earrings from Target and saying such things as “what a unique perspective on the emerging business market in Turkey.”

Speaking of Turkey… the Rhino and I need to get our butts back in the Bloomy’s Test Kitchen and actually do some work this week. We decided to expand our sweet menu options by adding classics such as tots and but were halted by a severe disagreement over the potential juicy goodness of sandwiches topped with coleslaw. Any insight into this matter would be appreciated. After we made up, the Rhino was struck by a wicked “Why did we not think of this before?!” idea to add a Bloomy’s twist on a Midwestern favorite that readers just might have to eat to believe.

Stay tuned to the future adventures of two crazy cats who are just starting to figure things out in the delicious world of roast beef.

Until next time!

  1. I go for a "Kitchen Sink Burger" just about anytime I see one on a menu. This could quite possibly be adapted to include roast beef, you know...beef, fried egg, maybe some bacon and mushrooms or onion rings. Jussayin'
