Delivery, UGH

So because of the heat and the haze outside from the forest fires, I wanted food. I tried to order from Chin's Kitchen, which is the place I usually order delivery food from. Well, they've been bought by new owners and they no longer do delivery. Which is fucking stupid, because I'm certain 60% or more of their business was from deliveries. And I know it's now unlikely Brooke or I will be buying from them unless we happen to be in the area at the same time as a hankering.

So I looked online and tried Subway, but they do their delivery through some weird third party website thing, GrubHub. The same site suggested Panda Express, and since I didn't really want Subway, I tried ordering some Panda Express because their site said a $2 delivery fee and a minimum order of $15, which was $5 less than Chin's Kitchen used to do. But then they do their delivery though GrubHub too, and that site said $4 fee and minimum order of $30, which is ridiculous.

Next, I tried ordering a pizza online from HotLips. It said minimum order of $20 for delivery. I made a $20 order, and it refused to recognize it as valid. So I changed my order by getting a larger size, thinking maybe the pizza had to be $20 before adding extras. Cheapest I could get that I could eat was $28. I'm not paying almost $30 for a fucking pizza when a frozen one I can eat is $9 in the store, so I gave up on that and called them instead, on the thought that the website was glitchy and that's why it wouldn't take my $20 order.

Well that wasn't any better; the phone kept cutting out, I couldn't understand anything they were saying. Very hangry at this point, I hung up and said "Fuck delivery, I'll brave the haze." I went to Albertson's and got chicken and mashed potatoes instead.

It looks, outside, almost like it's cloudy, until you look closer and realize it's much too diffuse to be clouds. There's no lines like you see in clouds. As to breathing, I had no trouble doing so. I took my asthma inhaler anyway just in case, but I didn't notice any difference in my breathing.

Anyway, I had a horrible day. What about you?

The smoke "clouds" don't seem too bad. Its when it gets thick on the ground that I start to have issues.
