Dollar Fiesta

I've found an alternate route home after work which is actually faster than taking the freeways during rush hour. I always know I'm almost home when I see this establishment:

The Dollar Fiesta.

I will stop there one of these days and write a full report.

Under $10

Sandra and I found no Thanksgiving decorations at the 99 Cent Store tonight, but look at all this loot we picked up for a mere $9.39 -

Cherry fruit roll-ups, a quart of orange juice (which I drank on the drive home), 4 energy drinks (2 mexican and 2 ginseng), flavored vinegar, a Chop-Chop brand potato peeler, salad seasoning, buttered popcorn flavored Mike & Ike's, a box of Bavarian Dutch (??) style pretzels, and two new fruit drinks (one sour apple and one grape).

The fruit drinks are called Tropical Twisters and the bottle design incorporates a twisty screw theme. The sour apple one is called Green Ghost and it is delicious:

Green Ghost.

So fuck it, who cares if they didn't have Thanksgiving decorations?

A Disposable, Yet Still Very Festive, Thanksgiving Feast

In an effort to make this Thanksgiving as easy-peasy as possible I purchased Thanksgiving themed paper plates from the Dollar Store on which to serve the Turkey Dinner that I purchased from the deli counter of our local supermarket. By the way, our turkey dinner also serves between 6-8.

These are not ordinary paper plates. They are poly coated paper plates. In addition, they are not ordinary poly coated paper plates. They are 10.5 inch poly coated paper plates, which is a full inch and a half larger than an ordinary nine inch paper plate.

An ordinary nine inch paper plate compared to a 10.5 inch poly coated paper plate.

The two Hershey w/Almond candy bars, which, by the way, were purchased for twenty five cents each at the local Family Dollar store, are not included in the purchase price of either the ordinary nine inch paper plates or the 10.5 poly coated paper plates, they are only pictured to give perspective.

There are eight 10.5 inch poly coated paper plates for a dollar, which means there will be plenty of plates left over for a week of leftover dinners, and, or, snacks.

Rebelde merchandise is prevalent all over Santa Ana, but this is the sluttiest Rebelde image I've seen yet (it is also my favorite):

It is a 50 cent sticker available from a local vending machine.

Viva la Rebelde!!

On the way back from CBS studios

I've had this taking up space on my hard drive for long enough:

It's a 99 Cent Store on Beverly Blvd that Sandra and I passed about 3 or 4 months ago when we went to that taping of Rock Star: Supernova.

We didn't stop though because we weren't in the correct lane and didn't feel like turning around.

Plus you can only visit so many 99 Cent stores before it isn't such a bargain anymore.
