30 New Things: Go out For Breakfast Before Work

creditNow. I will grant you that going out to eat before work isn’t quite as challenging as cycling 88 miles with no training or braving a Scientology lair, but it’s hard to resist the siren song of pancakes, yo.

So it was with visions of giant muffins dancing in our heads that my friend Jess and I braved drizzle, fog and 6 am eye goobers to dine at our local Perkins. I ordered my usual stomach torture of orange juice, coffee and hashbrowns and Jess indulged in the ubiquitous giant muffin. We chatted about dinosaurs and thrifting, eavesdropped on the people across the aisle discussing Catholicism and attempted to guess our server’s gender (the jury’s still out – those fake nails aren’t fooling anyone, dude).

I headed off to into the rain, feeling smug that it was only 7 am and I had already accomplished something fun and lovely. Recommended.

sounds lovely =) I didn't remember seeing this one on the list so I just looked over it again and I'm really excited to see some of the things you are going to do!


Fantastic idea! I got up three hours early this morning for work and finished faster than I expected!

I think I will wake Mr.Ben and take us to Delux…yummmmm.

Savoury Muffin…get in my belly!


Once, in junior high some friends and I had the idea that we'd meet for breakfast at IHOP before school. It was awesome/weird.

Last semester, there was one night during the last week when my boyfriend and I both didn't sleep at all. I was at school aaalllll night silkscreening (hello, tendinitis!) and I drove back home at 6am to have breakfast with him at Panera right when they opened. It made everything seem a little bit better.
