Surf Taco

On Thursday I stopped at my usual Wawa for my lunch break, only to find that they had no power. Inexplicably, the new strip mall behind them had all their power, so I wandered over and tried the Surf Taco.

Granted, fish tacos aren't as tasteriffic as the stuff you'd normally get, Surf Taco is not meat slathered with sauce and cheese. It is layered on a taco with other stuff (veggies, slaw, what-not) that makes it interesting or gives it a unique texture. I tried two different things, seeing as you can order combination platters, and both were pretty good. I'm looking forward to getting more adventurous with their menu.

(I should note that my parents tried it and, to quote my dad, "It tastes like cardboard." I, however, beg to differ.)

Another win from Pixar! Last weekend a bunch of us got together to watch Up, the latest digital animation film from Pixar studios.

I honestly don't know how Pixar manages to keep the same high level of quality in their scripts, but they've surprised me yet again. The viewer cares (deeply) about the characters, the story is as interesting as it is unique, and all the action is very well placed.

For anyone who has a life, I'd say this is a must-see.
